Dave's XF Turbo at Calder Park

Dave's immaculately finished XF turbo manual came out for some fun with Dave walking away with a 13.6 at 108mph.

Re: Dave's XF Turbo at Calder Park

excellent looking car,mags look alright i reckon..

cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!
