That is really light! I thought my T350c was light at 1161 kg (inc half a tank of fuel, and all tools, junk, etc out aswell) and that makes 400/bhp / tonne (465bhp)

Vmax - so highest top speed over a mile.. next time I'll take a VBox Sport and get 1/4 and 1/2 mile times..
just please to get off the line ok, and keep the porsche 911 turbo in sight (mine was probably the lightest, oldest car there, probably only one with no TC, no launch control, no stability control and/or 4wd and most cars were auto) bit clunky gear change in the video, I got off the line ok, tried to give it a bit too much and just started wheel spinning just before a gear change.

I test drove - Vmaxed a DBS superleggera, DB11 AMR and a new Vantage (aston were a sponsor and had press cars there) and it was 50 metres drive to start line, then floor it to Vmax - awesome cars,- and these cars did it all day 60 - 70 runs each, really impressed
