Re: Hi speed cars..useable?

In a way what's the point in any UK spec car being capable of more than 80mph on public roads?

I always smile inwardly when I pass a Ferrari or similar in a queue of traffic as its the only time I can sometimes be faster than a supercar

With the cameras and weight of traffic on the majority of all roads now (safe) high speed kicks are hard to come by.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
