I think they do two versions, 190bhp & 230bhp. Could have been the 190 version? Still good going if you were in a van! :twisted:

A cadburys van lost me in the twisties on the Snake Pass last year. :shock:

Mind you, I suspect he knew the road like the back of his hand.

Had a dabble with an RX8 and lost. Fluffing the change in to 3rd didn't help though! :oops:

The 230 version is pretty quick. GF's dad borrowed one for weekend last week.... felt quite a bit quicker than my 172 and handled quite nicely. Not massively fast though and a really strange power delivery. Makes a beeping sound when you get near the 9,500 rpm redline though. :D

I'm pretty sure some of the quicker Williams on here would have the beating of one.

They look gash. Anyone with street cred would buy an RX7

I dunno, I like the way they look. Just wish they had the go of the RX-7..
