    14.4@100mph best 1/4mile time, not bad for a fat german tank with an auto gearbox< standard power wise. It had a few performance mods in june 2014 but unfortunately never got back on the 1/4mile as it died a month later in july 2014, when it had an argument with a brick wall (the wall died too).

    Modifications

    Blinds on all the rear windows including the back window (which is electric), parking sensors, electric folding wing mirrors, full black leather, heated seats, electric memory seats, easy start, electric steering adjustment, dual zone climate control, auto dimming mirrors, rain sensors, full closure, tyre sensors.

    Standard.

    4.4l V8 with vanos.
    When standard they have 286bhp and 325lb/ft with a very smooth power curve. June 2014 it had both cats replaced with 200 cell sports cats, uprated manifolds and custom mapped. Should have been around 310bhp and 350lb/ft and it had a much more aggressive power delivery.

    •  

    m-tech suspension with 324mm front discs and 305mm on the rear (both vented).
