Talking Range Rover - Gary Spec A Class

OK, what the hell. Time to put up a car in this section.
__________________________________________________ _____

It had to come. Some of you may be looking forward to this moment, many more will be dreading it. But, Spiny's High Impact Tuning Experience have created their first Gary-spec car of FM5.

Actually, it took a surprising amount of effort to get into position for this shot.

Despite weighing almost 5000lbs, this A-Class Range Rover still packs a power to weight ratio of over 500bhp/ton due to it's 1182bhp. I'd have liked more, but unfortunately although you can add a turbo, you can't improve it once added

Taking it for a run yielded a (clean!!!) 4:03 at Old Le Mans, although it should be noted that there are a few too many corners at that track for this car Top speed was 229mph if you want to get around the Mulsanne kink, benchmark claims 234mph so it doesn't have the straight-line speed of the FM3 Aveo.

Where it does shine though is acceleration. 4WD means it gets off the line very quickly hitting 60mph in under 3 seconds and 100mph in under 6 seconds (although you will need to short-shift to 2nd to achieve that). Sadly cornering is best done with eyes closed and sticking to the slow-in, fast-out mantra. Braking is also an interesting experience, despite race brakes. Remember to significantly increase your braking distance if you drive it.

So, in summary;

Top Speed: Very good, 229mph
Handling: Charitably called dire, but much better in the twisty stuff than high speed corners
Launch: Very good, but soon hits 1st gear rev limited (sport 'box so can't do much about that
Acceleration: Well, what do you expect with over 1100bhp?
Braking: Feels bad, but this is amplified by the high speeds this car reaches.

It should be noted that this is a car for the brave and the stupid - which are you?

No. Pam was built to handle as well as a B Class Dodge Ram could. In contrast, this one is built to go as fast as an A Class Range Rover can in a straight line
