Well my cars true speed is def more than 175, and bouncy with vibrations... one wrong move and those 175/70/13 are flying high. I drive ,y car really hard all the time this usually keeps the jets pretty clean, so maybe thats why i could take it so far coz it was still increasing. i wish I had a SL55

RJ... well ur city pretty much took my matiz, but i gave a decent fightback to stay right with u throughout the whole time, right behind ur tail-lights. The Indi was rather easy for me to take, had to wait for u for nearly a minute outside the airport colony....lol

BTW, my nick has a reason for its existence. Now u know why

Its quite fun to be driving at those speeds but in the Porsche Cayenne when it was around 240-250 km/h (while going to Lonavla) you couldn't feel anythiing. No G's on you, No wind, No jittering of the air. It was rathar scary

The cayenne is a true Sport Utilty Vehicle, dissapointed that it didnt kick enough bottoms on sunday, it is supposed to be a "911" in a "Off Road" package.

True... but it wasnt like a mondeo against a SL55. The Porsche is a 450 bHp car with power to weight ratio disadvantage but still 450 bHp.

The Cayenna was also raced against that brilliantly driven silver BMW 330. Who was behind the wheel of the Beemer?
