When Land Rover discontinued the Defender, they forgot to do one last V8 version. They've just rectified that.

"V8 Defender"

399 bhp, 380 lbs/ft torque, 0-60 in 5.6 seconds, and prices start at £150K. More at Top Gear.



@Giles you need to get one...

How about the new Bentley Bentayga V8 for some diversity in the garage? It starts at £136,200.

Uglier front than the Jaguar S-Type, and that's saying something...

Bought a little run around.

A bit of tinkering on ride, handling and looks was needed...

Got an E30 a year and a half ago. It's my little weekender/project car.  I've been slowly fixing everything including converting the interior to OEM Uberkaro interior. Here are some pics:

Nice e30. We had e30, e28 and e23 back in the day in my family; all of them great cars.

This is one of the coolest vehicles I've ever seen on Youtube.  I love the fact that this guy is non-chalantly daily driving a huge turbo'd, 1100 hp econobox.



Here he is putting a Yamaha R1 to shame:

To drive that thing fast you have to be 100% there, the Traction and the willingness to stay on the road seems to be limited to say the least, nontheless a cool Machine, there arent many Mk1s with a sequential Gearbox around.

on the topic of older cars, me and a mate went out for a drive. while i was at his place, i took a peek at his dad's collection.. an oldsmobile and a VY SS.. the SS wasn't that old but to find one in such pristine condition is quite rare.. LS1 V8..  ;D

"IMG_2401.JPG""IMG_2404.JPG""IMG_2409.JPG"

and then here's mine. sorted out the suspensions for now, still waiting on a piggyback ecu to go turbo, unless i can find a standalone ecu which is a little hard to come by considering the platform is rather new..
