Sounds good, but I recon ther'd be turbos, maybe even turbo 8's, that are quicker than that.

Re: Who has the fastest LPG car in Australia?

Jason Ghiller's Red XE ESP with a turbo 4.0Ltr AU Engine ran 10.43 on straight gas

Tony Seychelle's White 351 Powered Capri ran regular 11.5-11.4 sec times a couple of year back

I think there's a VL Turbo that has run into the high tens as well, if not low 11's

XF Falcon - LPG Turbo Coming Soon

The're really good times. But has anyone gone under 10? I thought it would have been done by now.

Re: Who has the fastest LPG car in Australia?

That would be great if you could racecraft. I am very interested in rotary LPG turbos; (see thread in general tech; Can rotaries be run on LPG?)

It would be cool if it was street legal, but at under 10 it is still very interesting indeed!

Re: Who has the fastest LPG car in Australia?

Thats more like it. Anyone got pics of this car? Details on the engine perhaps?

So is this the fastest LPG powered car in Australia? Or is there something faster?

Thanks
