Roadster Torque (Is Wikipedia wrong?)

    Wikipedia says that 1.5 and 2.0 roadsters only puts out 200 lb-ft of torque. They have some reasonable sources. My electronic manual, which seems to match my 1.5, says 277 lb-ft. My VDS reliably reports over 280.

    Can anyone verify the most reliable numbers? Was the 200 a remnant of the 2-speed transmissions?

    Maybe they mixed up the 200kW with lb-ft ?
