Biggest news however lies under the bonnet. The Besturn X80 Sport is powered by a new 1.8 turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 180hp and 235nm, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Sadly however the new engine is not a Sport-only, as it is also available in the normal X80 with the same amount of horses.
