bloody good on fuel too....28mpg normal motorway speed and 39mpg when we were sat at 55 on the m25
Embarrased loads of chavs in at southend on saturday evening too
left them tyre smoking and axle tramping at the lights in their Jap turbo front wheel drive fibreglass mobile jukebox F***up In complete silence! surely the new v6 cant be better than the TDV8?
I dont like V6 engines....inherently unbalanced and funnily enough so are V10s
Maybe not better but it's damn close for a lot less money!!!
The new V6 puts out 275 hp and has a massive 443 lb-ft of torque.
Max Power: 271hp @ 4,400rpm
Max Torque: 640Nm (472lb ft)
So the new V6 is quite an achievement - much better on fuel as well.
I agree about unbalanced though - the ultimate is a straight 6 or a V12.
