sujay, your numbers are wrong. The link he has posted has the right figures. (Although the top speed was never verified in period.)

Must mention that this was a 1995 issue bought second-hand in 1997. LOL

I also remember the 1994 Boss Mustang featured in it. 670 bhp 10 litre engine, 0-160 kmph in 9 seconds dead. And yes, I was so enamoured by that car that I learnt the numbers by heart then. That was a one off, but they made lookalike Shinoda verisons for the road.

That car today resides in the Ford museum at Dearborn, I was led to beleive by someone. It never really is very well known or talked about these days, but its is one helluva car.


Too bad I lost that mag........
