Options:

1. Weld a rocket to the roof.
2. Buy a trebuchet.
3. Buy a faulty stopwatch that runs slow.
4. Tie it to the back of a F16 (Wear really dark sunglasses).

Let us know how you get on..........

never in a mounth of sundays but i like your optimisam lol
even if you shed loads of wait tuned the engine added 50 bhp nos you may get 10 /9.5 max
ithink the only way you would ever get a doblo doing 0-60 in 6 seconds would be put a biger engine in

Yes, driving of a cliff would be silly

You need to add the most powerful turbo an chip thingy you can get, up the horsepower to 180 or something, change the gear ratios, and just go for it
You have three runs before the thing shoves pistons and stuff through the bonnet.

By the way, my old Doblo has a very heavy, sold bonnet. The new one is flimsy, but about a foot longer

...a mapped turbo 1.9 diesel wouldn't get near 6 seconds let alone a 1.4 (a mapped alfa 1.9 wont even reach 8 seconds) so quickest way is the cliff method (should reach 60mph in 2.3 seconds...thats fast!) the alternative way is to sel the doblo and buy a faster car or is that a smart ass answer?

Re: 0-60 in 6

Saying that though, the OP hasn't stated what units the 0-60 is. For all we know, it could be 0-60 feet in 6 seconds, which I would imagine is doable (I was brought up metric )

I think John's OP had more than a sprinkle of sarcasm or hope bout it

1 option realy!!!
buy something faster
even a 1.9 doby turbo would seem a little faster.
Reading these posts on here today have made me chuckle like never before!!
I love a bit of mickey taking,but on a serious note it just aint possible unless.......you have a friend at NASA who could lend you some rocket boosters of the new space shuttle
