RE: large fast cars...

Speaking of fast Bentleys/Rolls....

Sometime in the seventies someone made a fiberglas copy of a Rolls and put a
Merlin (WWII fighter plane engine) in it.....vroom.

In the realm of reality (sort of...):

>From this week's Auto, Motor und Sport on the Geneva car show:

Audi S8: 340 HP; 0-100 kmh in 5,5 sec.  I think the lifters on the intake are
mechanical, it was tough to translate.  And if I remember correctly 11.4:1

Audi S6plus: 326 HP, 6 speed tranny.  Available this fall.......in Europe.
