    Late 2006 onwards is 280bhp and yes they are very rare, only about 100 odd were ever built and if your fly enough to get a silver lightning one then there were ever only 20 odd of these rare beasts.

    The way to find out is to look on the drivers side B pillar, there will be a number, 188kw is 255 bhp and 206kw is the 280bhp.
