I love this thread.. first time I've laughed today.

The uks fastest accelerating front wheel drive car was a maestro for a long time, don't know if it still is.


Sorry, but I'm going to have to see some sort of proof of that... I believe that actually it was the fastest accelerating MG model in its day, not fastest FWD full stop.

MG Maestro Turbo.

0-60 in 6.5 seconds in 1989. That was if you could keep it out of a hedge with all the torque steer. Wouldn't stop easily either.

There is a guy called Andy Nicholls who has made one properly quick (11 second quarter miles) and it handles quite well, but that's after tens of thousands of pounds, and over ten years of development. I assume that's who Crud's talking about. Not the quickest FWD anymore by a long chalk though, I believe Andy holds that record with his Rover.

Delboy - nice beard
