Then I keep an eye on V8 Mustangs because for an extra £10k I can supercharge one to 670bhp, but they’re not dropping in price to the ‘magic’ £15k I have in my mind to be able to say I spent less than £30k for silly horsepower :D

Needs more than just the charger plus fitting. Not sure if for a used charger either...

The class system is massively complex, but I had a look through and there's a few classes that haven't had a 200mph record set yet, and the class that caught my eye was I/BGALT, for which the current record is 144.032mph set in 2016. I = 46 - 61.99 cubic inches (754cc - 1015cc), B = Blown (Supercharger or Turbo), G = gas (petrol rather than nitromethane etc.) ALT = Altered Coupe. This class doesn't allow any major streamlining other than removal of mirrors/radio antennas etc., all of which got me thinking: what would I build to get me that record?
Not sure about getting to the 200, but the 144mph current record doesn't seem particularly unattainable as these things go.

I'll see you there when I strap a truck turbo and some moon disks onto the fiat 850. It's not very aerodynamic, but has a tiny frontal area 😂
Cheers, Harry

Don’t you need twice the power to get the same speed when driving on salt/sand?
How about not having a sig at all?

I also get occasional urges to see what MG ZSs are doing. Apparently people are expecting £3k for cleanish ones.

I prefer the earlier ones though, the later ones look rank.

Reviewed very well at the time as I recall, dynamically at least.
Colleague had a 2.5 ZS180.

Made a good noise and yes - handling very tidy. They are set up pretty stiff.

No. Salt flats are nothing like sand. The biggest problem is traction, because there’s very little grip, or breaking through the crust.

Thread bump, because this rare thing has come up for sale just up the road from me.

I have huge amounts of want for this, but £40k seems bloody pricey, when the std 5l V8 FX50/QX70 can be picked up for more like £15k.

Does the std one have the same ride height?

No Jon.

"The 5-litre V8 now boots out 420bhp versus 390bhp in the normal car, and the new exhaust batters the air like a distant Chinook. It’s 20mm lower and a bit stiffer than usual, so there’s marginally less slop through corners. The carbon bits are actually functional, so there’s five per cent less drag and 30 per cent less lift. "

To be fair it was a £100k car when new when the std model was £50k. And the carbon rear wing upped that list by another £5k. Proper carbon bits all over it and lighter wheels.

Laughably has the same quoted 0-60 time at 5.6s as our Superb :lol:

I can't see any others for sale other than that one! (like any std ones for £15k like you mention)

The FX50/QX70 (same thing, but model name change) in 5l V8 is a rare enough thing in itself, but only 15 of these came to the UK of the 150 globally (50 in EU).

That special edition looks crap though. The normal V8 looks identical to the diesel, and it's far more amusing to have a ~400bhp V8 in a car which doesn't look like it'd be particularly rapid.

Make them a cheeky offer arguing that Vettel's poor form devalues the car.

I wonder if it's come up for sale because Infiniti are getting out of the UK and the owner wants rid beforehand
