    ^ Cliffs for browsers where that vidjo doesn't work?
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

      Fucking want.
      One of the best looking sedans on the market, fucking quick and cheap to run. What's not to love?

      Stocker than it should be: '90 Eunos Cosmo, 20btt.
      Slower than it should be: '76 929 2-door hardtop, 1GGZE.
      Not as finished as it should be: '68 Impala 4-door hardtop, 327.

        Most Mental Caterham that you can buy that does a claimed 2.8 second 0-100. Caterham has a power to weight of 566 hp per tonne and Tesla has 305 hp per tonne. Puts Tesla into insane mode and chops the Caterham.

          There's a few vids on 85d's getting chopped by real cars on the 1/4 new e63 traps 123mph stock in one vid

          The 85d only does an 11.6 1/4 @115-116mph

          That's stock falcon v8 with a tune spec

          No comparison out in the real world though off the lights

              Really want to drive one of these. I could imagine it being a novelty but still missing the vibration and power curve of a IC engine.

              Projects:
              '90 2jz-gte 929
              '02 twin-locked TD42 GU Patrol

                4WD in the Tesla does the trick there. Clubbies are traditionally difficult to get cleanly off the line - No electrickery helping you and they are very light.

                  For sure. Caterham do claim a 2.8 to 100 though.

                    No doubt it can do that - on pre-warmed tyres, sticky road, well-practised driver, etc.

                      Ideal conditions, dragstrip etc.
                      Imagination is more important than knowledge.

                        I've never been into the drag-queen thingy, but 10.9s is quite a big difference from 11.6s isn't it?
                        Also, when you say stock Falcon V8, you're talking a blown one aren't you? So the "tune" means lots of boost?

                          It's bloody impressive, don't know how anyone can say different. I haven't driven a LOT of 10 second cars; maybe that's why I still think it's quick.

                            Well it's just quick enough to pip my street bike and I thought that was fucking quick at 11.137 119mph. 0 - 100 3 seconds flat.
                            I will race one for lols.

                              Yes, 7/10ths at that level is a fucking world of difference.

Stupid tart on the news last night talking to the weather guy "wow you look totally drenched there whateverthefuckhisnamewas." No shit you vapid bitch he is standing in a fucking cyclone.
