MusingMuso Posted March 7, 2011 Share Posted March 7, 2011 I still have battles with people half my age who think everything they produced was rubbish. Anthony ================== We must stop talking cars or we'll get into trouble, but I will just tell you something interesting. I had the enormous privilege of being strapped into the left-hand seat of a Metro 6R4 during the days of the infamous Group 'B' rally super-cars. 480bhp, 3-litre V6 with 4 wheel drive, and it didn't weigh a lot. 0-60 in 2.5 secs. That car was so good, nothing could touch it, and when they banned the Group 'B' category, we lost an international super-star of a vehicle. It was designed "in house" at Rover, and to this day, it is probably the ultimate in chassis and transmission development. Was I scared? No, I was petrified for the first 3 miles, until I opened my eyes and started grinning like a school-boy. That was a seriously quick machine with explosive performance. They had some very clever people at Rover. Pity about the management; especially in the last phase of the company. MM Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
