    new car prospects?

    Post  Danzul on Thu Aug 05, 2010 10:48 am

    as i was talking to paul last night about posibilities of the golf becoming turbo'd or a new rear wheel drive car, he suggested i look at a 3 series.

    the idea is to get the wife past her test and let her run around in the golf! then i can have something top play with.

    the car was a E36 Bmw, the 1.8L turbo diesel.
    having a look at insurance it is the same as the golf next year and they are floating around the 1 grand mark:)

    i am doing more and more reading into them and yet again paul you have come up trumps! cheers mate.

    is there any thing else people would consider as a new car?

    mmmmmm, im assuming there the old old stlye jag Razz

    im guessing throttle bodies arent your thing,?

    and i intend to, but im gonna have a look around, test drive a few cars i have till next year so why not enjoy looking for the right car lol.

    wheres that ferrari show room?? lol

    was looking round a civic type r earlier today.
    i think that chances are it will be either 4 or RWD and ford or jap, possible BMW.

    one of these ones



    the trouble with throttle bodies is they only work properly if they are bolted to something thats been designed to use them. they give no advantage on a stock ish engine.

    The type "r"'s are nice motors, but they need to be thrashed all the time to make them go, which is a bit tiring to say the least. altough, and accord type 'r' would do you nicely as its a 2.2 vtec so has some torque, and no fecker knows what they are so you don't get every twat on a baseball cap and saxo/clio etc trying to race you because they think their 15 quid halford gearknob has given them more power

    thats an xjs, probably a 3.6 looking at those wheels Evil or Very Mad the only engine to have in those is the 5.3 v12

    I know what you mean about the accords looks, they are a tad plain, but the type 'r's do look 10x better

    Bugatti Veyron

    Post  GT on Mon Sep 20, 2010 7:54 am


    As production of the Bugatti Veyron winds toward its eventual conclusion, Bugatti has created what is likely to be the ultimate version of its world-beating hypercar: the Super Sports. Bugatti sent its official test driver Pierre Henri Raphanel out on Volkswagen's Ehra-Lessian high-speed oval with the first Super Sports to see just what it could do. With representatives of the Guinness book of records and German Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV) on hand, Raphanel made passes around the big oval in both directions.

    With output bumped up from 1,001 horsepower to 1,200 horsepower, torque swelling to 1,106 pound-feet and a revised aerodynamic kit, Raphanel managed runs of 265.9 and 269.8 mph for an average terminal velocity of 267.81 mph and a new world record for a production car.

    The first five production Super Sports will sport the same black and orange finish as the record car and all production models will be electronically limited to 257.9 mph to protect the tires.

    until you want to brake, or corner or accelerate, There is shit loads of stuff out there that is faster than an F1 car, Christ, even the proper gt40 in 1960 something was quicker than today's f1 cars. But you find me a road car that will corner and brake quicker than an f1 car and I'll give you a tenner Laughing the veyron is a slug, give me a late 80's or ealy 90's supercar any day, and xj220 or mclaren f1 will trounce a veyron up to 150ish any day of the week, and round a track the f40 will hand the veyron its arse on a plate with out breaking sweat.
