    Anyone else notice that:
    Is still listed as standard equipment in the US Spec sheet? I wonder if the wheel swap was a last minute substitution?

    From the Roadster Sport spec sheet:
    I don't like the way they wrote that. It makes it look like it makes 288 bhp at the 14,000 rpm redline.
    It probably makes 288 bhp at more like 8,000 RPMs
    I think they should have done more to separate max HP from redline.
    Like "288 bhp @ 8,000 RPM with 14,000 RPM redilne."

    Note, the original wheels are/were 7 spoke, so I think they tried to update, but accidentally had left in "uni-directional" and "forged".
