Just been blown away by this - takes a while to load so suggest set it going, hit pause and come back later.

Now turn up your sound loud - has to be the best ever engine note, and the most amazing driving. It's Ari Vatinen on Pikes Peak in a Pug 405, old school.
You may have seen this but if not then it's just awesome.
The blinding sun, the proximity of the abyss and the acceleration (particularly in the 'from helicopter' sequence will blow you away.

It's porn like the recent vid of that guy driving through Paris at dawn. Should be available on a DVD back to back with that! Ultimate car stuff!

seen it before. We reckon he's pushing about 550hp or more, and running some wild slipper clutch or such.

I'll try and find a very very fast track audi.

nope seems its been removed, I have downloaded it what sites can I load it up to?

Oh yes :yum:
The Escudo/Vitara came in both single and twin engined flavours - the twinny came first and the single engined 2 litre V6 (IIRC) came the year after
