anthor fine example of a guy who knows a good car. nothing like a sweedish super car. its a brillant motor that will kick butt apparently its the worlds fasest street legal production car but dont go into an argument i dont care about all that mclarens better or tvr speed 12 or whateva..

But the koenigsegg cc is cool. plus it wins most my top trump supercar gumball rally games.

good 1 there

My Dad drives the Saab 95, 2.3t
So basically, I can drive that car whenever I feel like.

I happen to love the Volvo V5 2.4 turbo

In the old days I worked on some 16 cylinder Wakashas which had pistons the size of 5 gal buckets. They produced 6500 Hp.

Today, I think some tugboats on the Mississippi are running 750 to 850 thousand Hp

Why not just "rice" out a tugboat and install a larger propeller and a nice bolt-on rear wing...and put a RD320DETTV (whatever that R2D2 engine is)in place of that fuel hogging engine there now?

Im a bit sceptical about 750-850 thousand hp look at this http://www.bath.ac.uk/~ccsshb/12cyl/
Try and fit one of those in your F350, im pretty sure we could fit most of an F350 in it if we split it across a few of the 14 cyl's.

But then again i wouldnt like to have to pay for the fuel. At britsh fuel prices ($6.60USD a imperial gallon) Id have persuade my dad to remorgage the house every week to pay for the fuel!
