Default So who has got the fastest Rover 75 or MG?

And is it faster from 0-60 or top speed than mine?

Just a guess, but I'd guess Flying Banana's ZT is faster than your ZT - down low and up high.

On the UK motorway network, where conditions allow, my ZT-T will do an indicated 70mph....

Jay doesn't have a 75 or a ZT but he does have a Chrysler 300 and a Harley.

The fastest, on a track, of mine is my V8 ZTT 400 which is governed to 155 mph.
Never had either of the other two up to full speed but I think the 1.8t is pretty quick.

My pushbike might also reach this speed on a very steep hill

Saxo1980 has a very rapid diesel, that would be a good match for yours Jay.

You need a V6 to pull the extra weight of the chrome!

(Or is it offset by the material you have shed by all the polishing??)

Probably the layers of polish have increased the weight even more

But more aerodynamic now. No doubt the car cuts through the air will barely a ripple.
