Some C3'* had 180 HP. I PERSONALLY could whoop on them in my car (let alone my bike).

Bonneville certainly wont be able to count for current production soon...

Maybe to begin with, but into the 90s they were a totally different model.. Actually called the Mark "X" LSC.. and these were being produced along with the continental in a totally different body style, and rear wheel drive... while the continental was FWD
