New Motor Mag

I nearly fell off my chair today when it arrived early, and without further ado here are the times of the TE50..

Motor got a 14.7 1/4 mile on a "track greasy enough to induce wheelspin from 1500 rpm"
They were shown the tape from fords official corveitt and that showed a 0-100 in 6 flat and a 14.2 secons 1/4 mile

They also have details/pictures of AV and they say the bodyshell will pick up an extra 40kg

still reading to see what else is in there

They had the same problem with the new M3 and recorded a dud time. I guess we will heve to wait for a test between the TE and Clubsport to get good figures.

I notice Fords time are slower than Wheels times, Ford always seems to be conservative.
