    what an absolute beast!

    Hennessey HPE800 - 808bhp supercharged Mustang goes on sale

    Not so long ago I would have lusted after a great big outrageous, uncontrollable piece of V8 musclecar like this, just for the sheer hoot of it.

    Now all I think when I see stuff like this is

    "Yeah great, but the Tesla P100D is faster in normal use (and will be within a whisker on the strip), and it doesn't belch out fumes enough to kill my kids"

    How times change (but what a pity that big half megawatt electric motors don't sound like brawny V8s though)

    Got to be honest hope i never see one of those McLaren 675LT's around at the right price though, I guess a few miles here and there wouldn't be that polluting?

    Ya have to love the sound of a V8 beast! :)
    But, I have not been to a gas station since August when I picked up my beast in a brides clothing ;):rolleyes:
    Whence I was younger it was fun working on friends cars and the like. Learned about points, condensor, plugs, wires etc....
    Now? I change the wiper fluid :)
