the Cosworths are pussy as well are they?

Quotes from the 1996 GBOR

Fastest Road Cars
The highest road-tested acceleration recorded is 0-60mph in 3.07sec for a Ford RS200 Evolution, driven by Graham Hathaway at Millbrooj Proving Ground UK on May 25 1994!!!!

That baby is a road car and will kill a V8 supercar to 100km/h, sure aint no pussy if you ask me.

I was only joking. I kow the sierra cosworths and the upcoming cosworth focus built inconjunction with ford germany are and will be far from pussy. Must also notify you that the fastest recorded speed 0-100km should be the viper 800TT. A mag in the states got it 0-60mph in 2.4 on slicks and 2.7 on street radials!

It's done in a way that's not really that pushy I reckon. I much prefer the "We have ignition" slogan though. A new take on "Live it" would be cool too. Keep the current ads but change the slogan to Live it.. Much more purposefull IMO..

Oh & I'll take a new Focus RS if there's one handy.. but I am prepared to wait for the AWD Cossie version in 2004. :D

The Rally version of the Ford RS 200 could do 0-100 in 2.1secs and the 1/4mile in about 9sec ON GRAVEL.

This is one reason why they banned Group B rally cars....
