    I was out in this ALL DAY yesterday (pics).....

    A dear friend of mine did his racing license about 8 months ago and has been waiting for the right car for the track and the summer.........well this is what he got.


    My mate taking my step dad out (he had to change his pants when he got back!)












    I have to say it is by far the quickets thing i have EVER been out in and i've been ferrari 360's and an Aston DB9

    0-60 in 3.5 seconds
    It'll pull all the way to 170 if you dare take it that far !!!

    It's a totally different to anything i've ever driven, the power is constantly there and it never stops pullin. The handing is just amazing! It sticks to the road so well.........only thing i can say is i want one!
    No more Astra..........Now another German!

    So what is it 1.6 or 2.0, or even a big bore 1.7 or 2.1??

    For any chance of it hitting 170 it would have to be a 2.1 Pinto. I'd suggest putting the TB filters back on too, wont last too long without them !
