No its pointing at about 164 and yes thats mph, that was on the flat too!!!

On a few down hill runs we saw 180-185, had to work it out from the revcounter and the gearing because it was way off the clock!!!

BMW M3 Evo coupe, chipped to remove the speed limiter.

All of this was done on a private test track of course, but that goes with out saying!!!

Not sure what his Burty's parents where doing there though

Been sat in with Burty doing 175 in his Cosworth, shit that thing was fast. 450bhp
Decided to convert him to boats instead, so now he's on a mission to have the fastest boat.

Keep Trying Burty 300 Drag race Sweeet!

Me too!!! And I was in it when it blew up at 140, and at 165 and most of the other times it blew up. Fortunatly I wasnt in it when he wrapped it round a lamp post and had to re-shell it, or for that matter when he bounced it over a curb slowing down from 130 and twisted the chassis and wrecked the wheels, suspension, crossmember etc. nor when he got banned for the second time in as many years!!! I also had to tow him home when the gearbox went or was that the time that the diff blew up, actually I think it was the second time the diff blew up. I did go with him to pick it up after it got confiscated for 18 months by customs because he unleashed the full 450bhp on the channel tunnel train. Oh and I was there when the Police let him off for driving up a foot/cycle path sideways, but not when they let him off for racing and beating Police Omega that was on its way to an emergency call out!!!

I'm barely scratching the surface here

All on a private test track of course

Cossie is a mad car just as your Mercrury.... It so damn cool!

Had my Maserati 222 4v. Biturbo in 245 km last evening that is 152 mph., but I ran out of road. She was still accellerating good...

Speed is everything, as long as it can be controlled!

Those ZZR's are awsome! I've never ridden another bike that's so strong right through the rev range, many go when you ring their neck, but that zzr is mind blowing
