The Materia Turbo is easily distinguishable from the standard car, thanks to a number of exterior enhancements. Starting from the top, the windows are tinted all-round and a spoiler has been added to the rear hatch. On top of the bonnet sits a menacing looking air vent, which, as it turns out, isn’t just for show. The car rides on a set of lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels with red pinstripe ‘bling’, wrapped in 205/40 profile Yokohama rubber, while the whole car rides 30 mm closer to the ground thanks to a set of Eibach springs.

The biggest noise comes from beneath the bonnet though. The 1,5-litre, 16-valve, VVT equipped, petrol engine is connected to a factory built IHI turbocharger with recirculating dump valve. These bolt-on performance bits, as well as a larger diameter stainless-steel exhaust, have increased power output from 77 kW and 132 Nm of torque to a healthy 110 kW and 190 Nm. As a result the Materia has been transformed into a feisty little performer. The 0 – 100 km/h sprint is completed in 8.9 seconds and top speed has been limited to 200 km/h. Fuel consumption rises to 8.5 l/100km from the standard Materia’s 7.2 l/100km, but to be honest it’s the last thing on anyone’s mind when driving the Materia Turbo.
