  • The Last of the V8’s ????

    The V8 era Is definitely nearly over in the UK, this is my AMG C63s which is getting replaced in the near future for a Volvo XC90 mild hybrid. Going to miss that V8 growl, but not the fuel or tyre costs.

    is everyone looking forward the to the electric era ?

      Neil_w Hey I’m kind of looking forward to what’s in the future but I definitely know what you mean. I just sold my 15 gt mustang with a blower on it 700 wheel horse . I had a hard time adapting to the way performance cars are changing but lately I feel excited for it. I got crushed by lots of twin turbo v6 gtrs those really changed my mind about the way things are going to be moving forward

        Cleaning batteries doesn’t sound as appealing as cleaning the engine does it ????

            That Mercedes is hot. I am a V8 guy, myself. I have an M5 that is modded and I love it. Honestly, it's almost too much power for where I live because when I get challenged, it's usually with too much traffic and I don't do well backing away from a car that I can smoke.

            I think the battery-car situation is the US is behind the UK, if I am not mistaken. We are still likely going to have gas-guzzling cars for quite a while over here. Tesla is getting big here, though, and I had a friend with a BMW hybrid that did something like 500hp and it was faster than any other hybrid I had seen to that point.

              Yeah the power in the merc is too much for the roads and shitty weather over here, bendy single lane roads and rain 99% of the time is all good thing until something goes wrong ????.

              I had a 5 series in the model you’ve got ; wasn’t an M5 but was still a great car !

              Harley Davidson are developing electric engines too; you think that will ruin the experience?

                I do. I have built and ridden Harleys for years and it is the sound that makes a Harley. Not much sound coming from batteries. lol
