You moron.

MX-5 my foot :laugh:


It's a Fiat Barchetta :afro:

Not a bad little car, not overly quick, but not bad, not the best fuel economy for its size though :king:

Must be nice to have areas where one can legally travel at that kind of speed! Only "safe" places here to "put the pedal to the metal" and travel at those speeds without loosing drivers licence are the back roads where the law seldom travels. Not that I'd recommend it to anyone but I have driven in excess of 135 mph on gravel roads with full sized Chryslers.:crazy: ....of course I'm older and wiser now .... well .... that and the fact that my current Chevy can't seem to get past 120 mph.:smokin:

I'm not so sure which is uglier. :?:

The Suzuki or that. :confused:

I hate to be in one when T-boned by a proper sized car let alone anything bigger. :eek:

hmmn,

I thought the Barchetta had a top speed of 200kph 0-100kph 8.5secs, not 240kph, according for most of the spec websites :)

The Honda S2000 has a top speed of 240kph 0-100kph 6.5secs from an N/A 2L and they a bit larger :D

moose, we stuck 16" alloys on - not that that makes much difference except when cornering and then you stay on the road like sticky ****! :laugh:, but yes, we have actually done 240kph when driving through Germany - up until the point we got a Porker up our arse wanting to overtake - so we had to move into the slow lane at 190 kph as we found it all a little bit scary! :rolleyes:
might be a difference in the drives though - front versus back.

the Honda is a nice car and I wouldnt say no... but it is more expensive and not as reliable long term. ours is a '95 model and is as good as new - utterly no probs with it! :cool:

The S2000 engine is the most advanced 4cyl in production cars in the world, and it has proven to be a very reliable engine, as Hondas are :D


I would find driving on the autobahns a bit strange, doing 240kph and have someone tailgate you because you are going too slow :crazy:

Yeah, Shine, nice to play on the Autobhan.........and front wheel drives are great in the snow/dirt but much prefer rear drive
in normal {Crazy Freeway Freddie} traffic with Hi-Pro V8's anywho:crazy:
And Canadians cannot even drink and drive......won't
see me up your way soon as it now take Passport to enter:eek:
