I was just reading the thread on the 1.2 16v beating the evo. Yeh on paper this would seem virtually impossible. But trust me... never under-estimate the mighty 1.2 16v!!!!
I have one of these babies, and last night I stoned the Pug 206GTi!!!
Probably because his was a standard one, but mine has a full stainless zorst, and induction!!
It was a great race tho!!
I pulled up next to the black Pug at a set of lights on the A13, and the driver who looked like he was 17(c***) was giving it, with his FINE bird in the passenger! so I thought to myself, let me try my luck with this bugger, since ive had SRIs an XR2s before.
So at the lights, I pulled off at 5500 to about 30mph, then in second he swiftly caught up with me, and in third was a cars length away, but we came to a roundabout and he had to brake hard, and I just cruised round it at 60, and accelerated hard out of it, when I hit 80 he was just exiting, I couldnt believe it!! i was a good three cars length away by now and I think he just gave up!!!
So never underestimate us 1.2 cos well ave ya!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol.
who sez the Pug GTi is fast?? u aint seen a real car then ave ya!!!
