The car was only delivered to the owner a week ago, a millianaire owner of a car hire business.

He rented it to the driver for £20k a day.

Reports suggest he was doing 100mph on a wet road in a 40mph zone.

Hopefully he'll be sent down & the insurance will refuse to pay up.

rearrage these words

sense money than more

I remember this guy who was nicked for speeding on the M1 shortly after it was opened. It was said that he was still in second gear at the time!

He shoehorned a RR Meteor 27 litre Centurion tank engine into a chassis and had the body made to fit around it. Also had trouble with RR because the car had a Rolls Royce radiator fitted and they wanted it removed.

This engine was virtually the same as fitted in a Spitfire and other types, except it didn't have a supercharger fitted. That said, it was more than enough power for the owner! TC.

A long time ago there was a review of a Transam in Classic car, the reviewer had real problems with it in town as it did 35MPH ticking over in first gear.
