  4. At the time my 2.8 Granada was pretty quick, I owned a fiat pinto GT again at the time was fast that’s about it I’m afraid, I know boring

  5. Some crazy Le Mans thing, cant remember what it was.We were painting the Chrysler workshop and it was in the way so I drove it about ten yards.More fun was the car with a twisted chassis that went sideways.

    My Audi RS4 was pretty swift and you could point it anywhere and put your foot down.

  11. Back in the day - a Rover SD1 with a Janspeed twin turbo seemed pretty quick. It was v loud inside and you couldn’t hold a conversation.

    More recently, a McLaren MP4 but I couldn’t let it rip.

    On balance, I had more fun in the SD1.

  12. Citroen CX Pallas 2.4 automatic. Beautiful car to drive. First car I had with power steering, and only 2 1/2 turns from lock to lock.

  13. My honda cbr600f. Doing naughty speeds on 2 wheels seems like warp speed. I’ve had the bike since new 1999. Needless to say warp speed was left behind with my youth!

    Did various track days in various cars. E type, cobra, 911 and lotus exige. All great fun.

  14. A jaguar 3.4 in our driveway when the parents were out. It was my mums work car at the time. I must have been about 13/14 at the time. Never driven anything faster since. Probably just as well.:)

  17. I spent ten years working on Chevy corvettes and Cameros and Cadillacs. They were fast in a straight line. Shocking build quality apart from the corvette. The worst was the Camaro Z28. Similar mechanics to a mk1 Cortina but with a 5.7 V8. Mad but fun. A c5 Vette would do 180.

  20. A race prepped Aston Martin at Brands Hatch on practice day. The car is in the GT3 or GT4 series. I drove the slower of the two with only 430 ish bhp. Was then taken out in the 600bhp car, it cornered like it was on rails!
