Agreed a few points but I see your AUTOMATIC 5.8 that weighs 2 tons and raise you a manual, 6.0 V8 that weighs 1.3 tons that I bought last month





wink

Admittedly its possibly too pretty to be called "a manly virile monster" but it sounds fantastic
I raise you a 7.0 that weighs just over 1.4 tonnes?
Ha - then I'll get my Dad...

He has a Pantera with (IIRC) 9 litre, 850bhp and weighs a little over a ton. (Officially timed at 218mph)

My vote goes to the stolly mentioned in the OP... Really cheap to buy (though somewhat less cheap to run hehe ), and one hell of a cool toy!!
