FG XR6 Turbo 0-200
FG XR6 turbo 0-200. Factory standard. Rolling on factory 19" rims, Toyo T1R. Brand new tyres, so grip is fantastic. Usually it would wheelspin to 60, stuffing up the gear change, but this time it was nice and smooth.
0-100: 4.9 seconds
0-200: 16.1 seconds
80-120: 2.5 seconds
Eased off a little after 200, was contemplating going to the 240 limiter but the private racetrack had a corner coming up so I canned that idea.
Can't wait to start modding it.

Guest: Vince Colosimo
Review: The Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 is shown in the studio. It is claimed to be the world first studio appearance.
Cox reviews the Porsche 911 Carrera S with PDK gearbox. The Stig does the power lap in the Carrera S, and also does power laps in several "really fast, really interesting cars" (Lotus Elise, Nissan GT-R, BMW M3, Mercedes Benz CLS 63 AMG) and one "really stupid car" (Hummer Stretch) to get some comparable times on the Power Lap board.
Challenge: Soft roaders: The presenters test crossover vehicles on sand and snow. Brown tested the Subaru Forester, Cox the Toyota RAV4 and Pizzati the Nissan X-Trail. The first timed test was a circuit on sand dunes. Cox achieved the shortest lap time but Pizzati kept timing when Cox failed to stop at the finish line and became airborne off the top of the dune. The vehicles were driven to Perisher Valley and tested on a circuit of soft snow with all three presenters in each vehicle. Again Cox achieved the shortest lap time.
Shark cage: Brown takes a Mini Moke to Port Lincoln, South Australia and fits a shark cage to the chassis. Brown gets into the cage in scuba gear, and the car is lowered into the water from a fishing boat. A Great White Shark appears but is not interested in the car. To attract the shark, Brown wraps himself in sausages and chum is poured into the water.
