    Re: E60 M5 ?

    As far as I know it will be launched in Geneva in March and should be available in UK at the end of 2004.

    The quickest car I\'ve been in is a....

    Thought this might be fun?
    A chance to let everyone know about your mates / dads / cousins friends uncles's fast car.

    The quickest car I have been in was an Escort Cosworth with 385bhp and an extra 100bhp of Nitrous. It went to 60 in 3.67secs and broke down a lot. Often throwing drive shafts all over the road. It topped out at about 165mph. Was quite funny as it hit the limiter then went for it again straight away. It was quite scary as it lost traction at over 100mph changing gears. He was going to get a 6 speed sequential box as he always got beaten by bikes. Was going to gear it for 180mph!

    Was in the Michelin Pilot colours with magnaesium dymag alloys, had Alcon discs and pads, full connolly rolls royce leather retrim, rockford fostgate sounds etc.

    I loved that car. Was about 7 years ago, but still remember the feeling [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif[/img]

    Re: The quickest car I\'ve been in is a....

    The fastest car i have been in has to be my cousins 911 bi turbo, that he had.
    It was modified with new twin turbos and everything else. It had like 600BHP and when i got out of the car i was shaking big time.
    Was supposed to do 0-60 in crazy seconds but it was wet so no such luck.
    Don't want to brag but he also had a Viper RT10 which could do 50MPH in 6th gear and then accelerate all the way to 185 with out changing thanks to a really clever gearbox. So the manual said. ;-)

    yes indeed Rich, Holding onto the rear apron handles and thinking are my legs secure whilst travelling at 170Mph is not a good thing to be thinking, you see you cant curl up and say it ainthappening in a nice comfy chair, a bikes seat is like a slippery retreat in which you must hold on for dear life.

    Re: The quickest car I\'ve been in is a....

    Quickest thing I've ever been in is a F40 which was stupidly rapidly fast as fook at Oulton Park on a TVR track day. 2nd to that would be my mate's dad's TVR griffith 5 litre which is stupidly quick and sounds mental with its lemans stlye exhaust that has been fitted! Drove it too which really [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] off my mates who didn't and his son!

    slowest thing would be my mates old yellow ex ambulance ebay bargain (hmmm?) volvo. it even had tinted out rears so we all shotgunned the back!!!!! hahaha. people in the warrington vicinity might have seen it. my brother has a private pilot license and he flew over and it stood out like the great wall of china!!!

    Re: The quickest car I\'ve been in is a....

    Fastest car ive been in was a scooby WRX. Went to a meet with my mate in his scooby to Coventry a few years back on a bank hol monday. This guy was there in his WRX STI which he had spent 9k on the engine (so he said), it had full bodykit and on board digi cam pointing out the front windscreen. gold 19s and sorted suspension. The owner was tweaking with his mates bonnet intercooler on the estate scooby and they went out for a spin in it. They came back and Daz, the owner of the STI, took out this guy in his, me and my mate got offered the ride aswell. There was 4 in the car and Fook me did it shift! Never felt accelration like it, it actually hurt when the foot was planted. Needless to say, I giggled it was that much fun!
    on the back of a bike aint much fun, was on my mates Honda CBR on way back from bassetts pole doing 140 and the wind is frightening! I like the weak legs feeling when you stop and get off!

    Re: The quickest car I\'ve been in is a....

    My mates RS500 Cosworth 590 BHP at the rear wheels in a D Reg car. This things running a T25 (Think it's a T25 not sure though) at 2.1 Bar of boost. He's spent over 25K on the engine alone and is built to racing spec.

    F*ck me it's quick, but because of the size of the Turbo it takes for ever to spool up, but when it does flipping hell does it shift. You are thrown and pinned into the seat.

    No use on a standing start as it can't get the power down, but when it's rolling it's silly quick. Out accelerated an R1 motor bike and left it for dead. Just one of the many cars/bikes it's killed.

    Only problem is it keeps on blowing Diffs and other parts, but it's going to cost too much money to uprate. 7000 for an uprated diff, 8000 for an uprated gear box etc... etc...

    All good fun [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Re: The quickest car I\'ve been in is a....

    One night on our way back from Southend and alot of chavs down there me and my mate were travelling back in his Skyline and came across a Sierra RS Cossey....that thing must have had at least 500 Bhp under the bonnet. My mate pulled up along side doing about 80 and he floored it and this thing left us sitting like we were standing still. Fire out of the 4" pipe.....it was like a rocket taking off. The rear was pulled down nearly draggin along the ground and the tyres scrammbling for grip as it swerved from left to right. It was very impressive...thing is it was full of chavs too...5 of them. On the right setup i reckon there isnt much that can touch the old cosseys one of the best engines ever built!

    Fastest car I've been in was a 'mates' 500 BHP supra, which unfortunately I wrapped around a lamppost!!! All that power in RWD on a damp road - not good!

    We were bloody lucky to both walk away from it unscathed, which is more than I could say for the Supra. Gutted.

    300kph in a Bugatti EB110 Supersport as mentioned in the other post.

    Crazy. I don't think I'll ever travel down a B-road that fast again. Particularly not one lined with very large trees.

    I can recall being really impressed (I was 18) by the four-point harnesses and the speedo that read to 400kph!

    An elderly 300SEL 6.3 Merc. 5.5 Seconds 0-100Km/h. Incredibly fun to drive, solid, tank of a car. If the brakes fail you can use all the modern cars around you as crumple zones.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif[/img]
    The best part is no-one expects a car like that to accelarate so fast! Perfect sleeper! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: The quickest car I\'ve been in is a....

    I work at a garage and the cars I have been able to drive are:
    Skyline - 582bhp (200mph plus top speed)
    Bently Continental GT
    Ferrari 360 Spyder
    Noble M12 GTO 3
    Porsche 911 (996) Turbo
    Brabus Smart (only does 112mph, but by crikey it feels like a million miles per hour in one of those)

    There are more but those are the most noteable.

    Gotta be my mates Noble M400. The handling was also superb. Bit like sitting in a mondeo what with it all being fordy switches etc. but a fantastic fast mad car nonetheless

    Mega bumpage for an old thread!

    Since it was waaay back in 2005 when I made my reply, I guess I better update this.

    Lambo Gallardo with a tuned lump of 580bhp, effortless performance with a nice exhaust note!

    Me in the Passenger seat!


    Then I had a go in this about a month ago!

    GTR in stage2 form, 590bhp, 0-60 in 2.7secs! Power is savage in this, it's scary to drive!

    Quickest car I've been in was an old mates R32 GTR with 670bhp. Went out with him when he was in a bad mood one night, and witnessed 186mph on the GPS on the M2, this was about 6 years ago. This car was not long ago bought by RK tuning and they have chucked about £40k into it :D
