Out and about in Kent

Postby Weathers » Mon Mar 02, 2020 1:22 pm

Went out for the first drive in the new “wee beastie” (as my friend calls it). 40 miles or so on my local roads and despite being limited to 4K ish revs during the run in period to say that I was impressed and slightly terrorised by it is an understatement. It pushes you up the road like nothing else I’ve driven (and I’ve driven some fairly impressive machinery over the years). Oh and what a noise it makes. My friend, ever the lyricist, described it thus “F*** me. It sounds like a f***ing jet plane hitting the sound barrier”. Can’t say fairer than that. :D
Can’t wait to go out again ASAP.

Oh and yes Tony B it has a roof and no I didn’t use it.

Sounds great :)

Probably best not to explore the full performance until the weather warms up, as I suspect the tyres will struggle with all that torque even when hot!

I finally got out in my Seven this afternoon after six weeks waiting for new dampers. Brilliant to be out again.
