no, the guy didn't know how to drive. top gear tested it around their course and it had the same time as porsche carrerra s and it was only .9 seconds slower than M3 CSL.

now don't try to tell me that your car handles better than a carrera or a csl.

I also saw that top gear evo8..

400bhp, 0-60 in 3.5 sec&#33;&#33;&#33;

it is seriously quick but I&#39;d still have a BMW.

too bad that version will never come to the states, we never get the good stuff.

You lucky brits

I&#39;m getting supercharged in the spring, I&#39;ll take him on :P

oh yeah I&#39;m pretty sure my cousin mr2 would spank the shit out of an EVO. 500bhp dyno proven and light as a MF&#33;
