BLAST FROM THE PAST

IS­SUE 397 – AUG 2018

Fast Car - - ARSEOLATIO­N -

2 years and 25 is­sues ago… It was all a bit arty, like.

■ We don’t know what we loved most about the Porker cover star – the Flach­bau kit, or the fact that it’s a full-on paint job, not a wrap. The word ‘both’ springs to mind.

■ 2500 quid, that’s not what Brendan’s MK2 TT cost, that’s just the road tax for one of these in Bel­gium. Bug­ger liv­ing there!

■ We love the minty Mk7 Fezza that head chef, Ryan O’Donoghue, cooked up here… can you see what we did there?

■ Worthersee, bol­locks, thanks for re­mind­ing us. We were re­ally look­ing for­ward to the 2020 show.

■ When ev­ery­one and their dog has a Lib­erty Walk Lambo, how do you stand out from the crowd? With an LB G37 of course… now that is rare!

■ How do you get 550bhp out of a 1-Se­ries? Slap on a ma­hoosive blower ob­vi­ously. That’s a lot of grunt for such a baby Beemer!

■ Speak­ing of rare mo­tors, how of­ten do you see a Z31 nowa­days? Let alone a mod­i­fied one? We had to go all the way to Poland to find this beast. And I’m glad we did.
