Description
This is currently the fastest Fiat Coupe 20vt in the UK, maybe the world!

Still front wheel drive, still 2 litre, still a road car but she's just at home on the drag strip or track. This summer has seen two 11 second passes on the 1/4 mile at Santa Pod with a personal best of 11.94 @ 121mph.

Plenty of track action in 2007 having driven at Castle Combe three times and Silverstone this year. Also competed in the annual TOTB tournament at York airfield, the biggest modified car competition in the UK. The highlight of the year was competing in the inaugural Fighting Torque event at Wattisham airfield, which pitched 92 "supercars" against each other over a 3/4 mile drag race. A few modified cars were invited for comparison and I have to say despite some issues with 5th gear fueling limiting the top speed, the coupe managed a fantastic placing of 25/92 winning all 5 races on the day.

A final highlight of the year was a Redline Magazine session at Santa Pod which featured a small handful of modified cars. Using the industry standard Datron timing gear, I had the car measured over 0-60mph, 0-100mph and the 1/4 mile. I have to say I was pretty pleased with the results as the car wasn't running quite right on the day with a missfire limiting boost to 1.4bar.

Roll on next season!

Santa Pod - vs Corvette Z06 505bhp
Even though I just missed out on the win it was still worth documenting :) So it's a blown 2 litre Italian Stallion FWD vs 7 litres of American Muscle RWD! Both our cars can do an 11 second quarter but too much gas off the line bouncing on the limiter leaves the 505bhp Z06 ahead at the 60ft, 3rd gear starts to real him in but by this time it was too late and the victory goes across the pond :)
