Default Worlds Fastest Bonneville

Rather than further hijacking a thread about Rogues 8Ball I found an interesting article on The Worlds Fastest Bonneville, "The Spirit of Bonneville"...

.I guess I cant claim to be the only Bonneville slammed to the ground after all.

LOL I havent the slightest notion of driving a FWD @ 200+.
Pretty amazing they can set a FWD production car speed record with a 6 cylinder luxury car.

oh come on Venom whats another 45 mph

im a member of the 150 club and i KNOW you are as well

i think it would be interesting to run a stock GXP on the flats and see where it falls compared to a car they spent 60k+ on lol

other then that nice post and a great find they should have put some more money in to development of the road ready cars and maybe kept the bonne alive....

Who.....Me? If you could flash out the rpm limiter, it would definately be interesting to see how far a GXP would go. 'specially with a little NOS to help it along. But 2oo is way unrealistic given our final gear and the car does feel ackward after 130+.
