This is hard to believe. To overcome very high pressures the diesel engines have to strong and hence are heavy. Even the FIAT's small wonder is around 60 KG heavier than the same 1.3 Petrol in swift and even that is quite an achievement. In your case its a considerably bigger engine.

Well, its a different paradigm I'm using now. I've decided I'll quote individual top speeds than the combined speeds over the past year. All this due to my cerebral evolution over the past few days - especially over the recent solar/lunar eclipses.

Just did 160 MPH (256.6kmph)in a Subaru Impeza Sti, just yesterday on the expressway... Was jolted out of my wits when I realised it was an MPH reading not a KMPH.. immediately slowed down...to 120MPH for the rest of the way. Im still smiling!!

Which expressway was this that allowed you to touch 250+ in India?

The bombay poona expressway. My friends touched speeds in excess of this in his SL55 AMG. Depends on the car and the stretch...!!

Talking

If you wanted to type "I dont believe you" Ill understand.
Normally cars do 180-190 on this stretch... its no big deal really and you did read how quickly i realised this and went down, i know it was a stupid thing to do but with a car like that, its easy not to realise. Guess I wanted to see how much she could go to.

Well later on yesterday I did a 185 kmph in Ford Rocam's Hybrid City while trying to catch upto EVO6's TT! We know it did 185 because at that speed the stock ECU cut us out!

My T-zen you really have to drive her to understand what i am saying it has got mind blowing performance and being a small car it is really fun to drive

and yes the engine is lighter i checked with the mechanic again

It goes way beyond a normal zen. way to fast.
i have got appolo acellare and the car hasn't skide much.but has noticable understeer.

good job maink
power and economy in one package
btw how is the car in terms of nvh levels, you must have fabricated custom engine mounts, does the vibration from the engine creep in

and do get your car for the next team-bhp meet in delhi
