Sadly not the first time nor will it be the last time we see this happening.

Just too much testosterone me thinks !

This chap will learn the hard way with having to foot the bill.

on the DubRatz page, the guy who built it in the states has commented on it. Apparently on US Premium fuel it put out 980ish BHP one of those moments when you find out what happens when you cross the line of your ability.

There are a lot of car show videos like this, this one I feel sorry for the peugeot owner. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLBu...nnel=AdamC3046

I think the driver was not the owner of the car, his mate who owned the car loaned it to him, he couldn't make the show for some reason. Someone said it just had a whole new respray which cost 7k, not sure if this is true or not.

Reminds of a biking event I went too a few years ago at Ace Café. There were the usual boys popping wheelies and one guy seemed to have it off to a fine art and was doing them the full length of the road with apparent ease.

Anyway he did his last run and went too far, he crashed into a newish parked car and the Police arrived a few mins later. Not sure how he explained that one especially as there were plenty of video's of what he was doing.

At least no one was hurt and hopefully he learned a valuable lesson.

I was talking to him at the show about the car. It's got a 9.4 litre engine , loads spent on it and makes huge power.
He was selling it for 60k, and the last thing I said to him was, if I win the lottery I will buy it.
