    Vanquish.

    WOW! The sound and sheer grunt of the acceleration from the V12 was just phenomonal!!

    One of the best experiences of my life!

    Why did I get a ride in one. My Girlfriends brother (Christian aka Drystone) gets married tomorrow, and he's borrowed the car of his boss. Good boss eh.

    Absolutely!!!

    Tell you what, the gear change and power delivery after the gear change is just brutal.

    How does 130(kph of course) in 3rd sound? Answer: Sounds f'in fantastic!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I just about managed 120 in 3rd in the S3 coming up the A5 a couple of nights ago. It red lined and then the limiter kicked in. Sounded good I bet!

    U sure your speedo is working!?! My a3 manages 105 in 3rd, and the gearing is longer than the S3/TT due to 5 speed not 6!

    Pretty sure - I'll try it again tonight. Whatever gear it was it started to fade at 120.
