- show me your fast cars!
Lots of posts on here about cars, and a number of posters appear to have some nice motors.
So heres a dedicated thead to show them off. Obviously some performance figures need included for bragging rights and to annoy those who seeth at the thought of anyone in anything more than a 1.2 lt polo being the devilPosted 1 year agomomoSubscriber
Not proper fast, but quick enough to be really good fun, sadly long gone now, 40k in 2 years took it’s toll on both the car and me (the exhaust was less than subtle!) and I replaced it with a Golf GTD (also now long gone) which was better in every single way apart from not being fun!

I always said I was happy driving sensible diesel cars as long as I had my motorbike, but since buying my house 2.5 years ago, that hasn’t been out of the garage once!

this reminds me of the bedford high street incident; a garish, heavy revving, ooh look at me lambo came to a halt at the lights, an elderly gent on the pavement, stepped over and wrapped on the window and shouted ‘bloody idiot’…. 😀
mazda 3 – currently in the garage, about 100 mph on a good day, but never done that much because i’m far to sensible.Posted 1 year agomuddy@rseguySubscriber
Ok then, not exactly mine but….
620kg, currently we’re getting about 330bhp, generates usable downforce at about 60mph and glues itself to the road when going faster. 0-60 currently at about 3.2s but we think we can pare this down a bit more…it’s very, very fast…. 8)
Oh and it’ll do 40mpg when you aren’t pushing it 😉Posted 1 year agosomafunkSubscriber
Not fast by modern standards at all but helluva good fun to drive on a twisty road and something you take out on a run just for the smiles.
1984 Golf GTI with a ABT tuned 16v engine and close ratio gearbox with quaife diff, Bilstein B12 shocks/eibach springs and anti roll bars/fully polybushed, uprated brakes. 192bhp and 168lbft torque.
And purely to irk jimjam 😉 , my 1.6tdi caddy – remapped to 148bhp and 224lbft torque, not exactly quick but can surprise a few hot hatches. Considering a new turbo/ stainless exhaust and intercooler to give a bit more poke.

Sadly don’t have this anymore (and couldn’t find a better photo easily).
Renaultsport Megane 225 with the Cup chassis. Most fun car I’ve ever driven. 0-60 in 6 seconds (more than quick enough for non-track activities) and cornered like a kart.
In terms of a balance between cost, real-world quickness and practicality not sure there was much better at the time.
VERY thirsty though…Posted 1 year ago
Nice to see some other tiny-willy folk coming out to play
worried about your obsession with member’s ‘members’ dez. Maybe start a thread asking for pics? 😉
in fairness some of these cars could be had for the price of a blinged up santa cruz. I know what id rather spend my cash on!Posted 1 year agoKryton57Subscriber
Standard 120d MSport, 0-60 7.7secs loads of torque yet easy 55mpg+. It was originally a gap filler but now after its more practical, sensible and fun than I first thought, I’m seriously considering the £300 remap to 225bhp/420nm and keeping it.Posted 1 year ago
