    What the hell do you drive? Beetle? lol.....

    Today I had two races. One with MX-5 Miata ... I won ,we were standing on the lights and when the green light turned on I hit the gas ,5 sec later I was ahead of him pretty nice ,about 2 car lengths.. The next one, when I was entering Highway. I was behind some slow as truck ,when I saw god damn BMW M5 going 90mph ,so I hit the gas and was following it... of course I did not stand a chance with that beast. The guy probably crapped his pants from laugh thinking that 2001 Ford Taurus was trying to chase him. lolz . I have a 2007 Mustang too.

    BTW ,My Taurus has only 155HP . Its a 3.0 V6 .Very strong engine ,it can easily run for about 200,000 miles. So I abuse it all the time. For the European guys ,its about as fast as the Alfa 166.

    yup, every day if I can, because it sounds so damn good!!!

    drive normally in town, but do let it out a bit on the motorways, or quiet twistys...

    Only when it's safe to do so obviously..

    Almost exact same spec for a Alfa Romeo 166 ,it has also 3L engine with I think 157HP. But Don't forget I have 07 Mustang which is quite faster.

    166 comes with either:

    2 litre Twinny - 150BHP
    2.5V6 24V - 190BHP
    3L V6 - 220BHP
    3.2 V6 - 240BHP

    It does weigh about the same, but your V6 compares to the Twinny power wise so that'd be 0-60 in 9.5 ish secs...

    Ohhh... I thought the 3.0 L were the ones with 150hp.. anyway,thanks for correction. Yeah,Taurus goes 0-60 in about 9.5sec. Which is pretty slow comparing to my Mustang which goes from 0 to 60 in about 6.8sec.

    Same mate that crashed the black one you showed me before? I'm sure I saw that crashed one on Punto Sports Club forum but pre-crash. Had full Abarth kit but he was looking for the front bumper. Haven't seen him post since but it may be a completely different person.
