Cod you have just reminded me of an incident that happened a few years back. A friend of mine and my self were on the BM cursing down the M5 on the outside lane doing just about 85mhp. Suddenly a Merc 500SLC (actually the newer version) came down on our bumper flushing its lights. I let it pass but followed suit
. The driver was determine that he will go as fast as he could and that I should not over take him (it as about 3 am and no one around so I/we made the decision to follow this guy to see what he will do eventually) reached 140-145 and suddenly the Merc stopped, we passed him (I had no limiter
. The thing came off when the BM was modified by ALPINA and HAMAN in Germany
Have to say here that the Merc has no acceleration to speak of.
Now going back to the TVR is a bit (a lot I recon) faster than our BM but doesn't look like a coffin on wheels and is lighter and sporty looking.
PS FOR THE CRITICS!!
And for those who may say that I am irresponssible, inconsiderate, extention of my .... and all that, just to let you know that I like speed and I do go fast on bicycles, bikes, cars, boats, planes. So don't even bother telling me off cause I ain't listening. And as my son just said to say TALK TO THE HAND CAUSE THE HEAD AIN'T LISTENING
