                Drive to work with a smile everyday in my 06 VXR.

                Three good things ...

                1. Put your foot down and feel the power through the steering wheel.
                2. Switch on Sports Mode when road is empty and you want to feel scared
                3. Let the focus / Peugeot / Saxo boys get up close, accelerate away, then let them catch up and crawl along at 30mph to really pi$$ them off :-)

                  Or be even more annoying by not rising to the silly challenge and just cruise, stare at your hand as they try to go flying by and revel in the fact that you could've toasted them if you really wanted to.

                  Plus you can also enjoy the thought that they may go onto a Ford/Peugeot/Citreon website and claim they toasted a VXR and then be ridiculed by the forum for thinking something so silly (i.e. like the corsa guy who claimed to have wupped a scooby - see corsa threads).

                    I once knew of a Nova that would i think it was Green and it might have been on TV but not too sure may be A11VXL could shed some light on to this.

                      Would try and boast or could toast?

                        Yes Alex that was mine A 16V TB was the registration number it was on top gear and channel 4 ride on. We built the car back in 1993. It did 0-60 in 5.3 and went around the bowl at Millbrook a 146.7 MPH with wheel scrub allowance that was equivalent to over 150 mph in its day it was truly mad and completely rewrote the laws of torque steer !! That was back then and there are now some running at 300 bhp +
                        Stephan Klasen our mapping guru had one at an insane 450bhp!!! You can check out him taking care of Ferrari 360 on the 1/4....

                        Moral of this is beware Corsa's and Nova's with 20 16V turbo engines!!

                            yeah, my cousin had a nova 2.0 16v turbo with 309 bhp and it was absolutely mental, i have been in some fast cars but nothing felt as quick as that.

                            One of the best ways to spend 3-4k.

                            IMO
