I could clear that easy.
Friend of mine spanked his Porker GT3 straight into a roundabout and flipped it onto its roof. I did ask him in plenty of time as we approached whether he was considering the use of brakes in this upcoming manoeuvre, but regrettably he chose to trust his own judgement of what was required
The experience certainly brought him down to earth, within 3 months of the Porker being repaired he promptly sold it.
3 months after he turns up at my house with an F40
Probably good idea to sell it if it can’t even clear a roundabout.
More money than talent. It seems you survived ok then!
Sadly a high proportion of owners of high performance cars get sucked into the idea they are great drivers by the mere ownership of them. They get further fooled into this delusion by the handling, grip and braking characteristics of these cars, riiiight up until the point they exceed them and then they’re fucked
You are right - These are the top ten crash prone cars
Audi RS 7, 352
Maserati Ghibli, 359
BMW 6 Series, 359
Nissan GT-R, 373
BMW M6, 387
Bentley Continental GT, 388
Maserati GranTurismo, 407
Bentley Continental GTC, 426
Bentley Continental Flying Spur, 466
Ferrari 458 Spider, 563
True. Before we went out in little single-seaters at Silverstone (a lot of fun) we were told that the first 10 minutes would be spent behind a pace car which would gradually speed up. We had to listen out for the rear tyre squeal in corners. That would be the only real guidance, at least the only guidance that beginners would be able to spot, to how close the car was to letting go of the road. “When the squeal suddenly starts to get louder you’ve reached the maximum safe speed”. I’m not sure how easy it is to hear the tyre squeal in performance saloons/hatches.
if you ever hear it on a public road you’re a twat. There’s virtually no car, including basic fiestas and the like, that cant be driven too fast for normal roads. Whilst i love tasty cars as much as the next man there is absolutely no point to them any more. They’d be far better putting all that luxury into a a cheaper, much less powerful vehicle. I think that’s partly why the audi A1 and it’s ilk are so popular, you can spec them up with loads of toys without having to buy a big engine.
Still got the big Jag then Paul?
what has happened to 1 to 9?
Nope, auto mini cooper now. (yes i do miss the XF but not as much as when I had the Fabia…)
