Someone told me that the cost of insurance was as much as the cost of the car.....that's me out then.

I'd be interested in an Estate version of the Veron :D

Sounds like a roller skate with a Saturn V engine :driving:

What I'd really really like is an old, slightly battered 4x4! Great fun. Or another sports car! But that aint gonna happen in a hurry...:rolleyes:


Yeah, give me a 4 x 4 anyday! (without the running costs of course) great for running the emmets in their posh, shiny, I don't know the width of my vehicle off the road :D

Pinky wrote: Too right! D'ya know, I'm gonna post this somewhere later, but I really thought my time was up tonight...I was going to Tesco in Lowestoft for the last of me camping bits, and a whacking great 4x4 was hurtling towards me on my side of the road. I thought, hey, he'll move over once he's passed that car...hell did he!

I flashed and beeped like a loony and a shocked lookcame over the idiot's face...he missed me by inches, no exaggeration!

I parked in Tesco and howled my eyes out!:-3


Yikes! Damn 4 x 4 drivers think they own the road! :rolleyes: :D



I had that happen to me once in my old 4 x 4 trouble is it was an artic coming towards me.:driving:

HP/PL: 125.25 bhp per litre | 110.16 bhp per litre

Torque: 1250 nm / 922.0 ft lbs @ 2200-5500 rpm | 705.0 nm / 520.0 ft lbs @ 4500 rpm

0-60: 2.5 seconds | 2.9 Seconds

Top Speed: 407.2 kph / 253 mph | 362.1 kph / 225.0 mph



All the McLaren would be doing is clearing its intakes of the dust from the Bugatti.


Ok. The Bugati wins on performance points.:D
