me mate has a GTI escort and claims he can hit 60 in just under 7 seconds its a totaly standard gti and i just cant see how it could be so fast acording to manufacturers figures it has 115bhp and does the 0-60 sprint in 9.2 seconds? i think he must be bullshiting seeing as an rs2000 escort can only hit it in 8.2? so he is basically claiming his car is faster than my birds corsa which has 125bhp and hits 60 in 8 seconds? and just under 7 seconds would be faster than a vts saxo and fiesta st and lexus is250 and is just a bit slower than a vxr astra 2.0 turbo! I SMELL SHIIIT!

lol I get the distinct smell of bulls as well!

What mods (if any) has he done to the car?

The new RenaultSport Clio (which is 194BHP) only does 0-60 in 6.9 seconds, and I am assuming the Escort will be at least similar in weight to it.

We can now await the Ford freaks opinions on this!

If a std escort GTi can hit 60 in under 7 secs Ill show my bum in Woolworths window on a saturday afternoon.

Sub 7 second 0-60's require either power, lack of weight, or both. The Escort GTi in std trim has neither.

Hand him a mirror and send him to a corner to have a long hard word with himself tease

Book figure is 9.2 altho EVER SO SLIGHLTY LESS is possible standard. So he's bullshitting,end of. Even if he'd have said 8.5 i wouldnt believe him

Ive got the 1.8 115PS motor as found in the GTI in my car and altho i havent timed the 0-60 id say its not exactly fast.I wanna get it timed mind to see if i can get it nearer the 9.0 mark

raftl

The new Focus ST is about 7 secs to 60 and that has 220bhp

Also, if he has timed it himself, 60 "on the clock" is, in reality, only about 55mph tease

Mind you this aint the best thing I have heard this year, a friend of mine rekons she beat a RenaultSport Megane in a race from the lights haha.

And she drives a 1.1 Saxo!

To this day she is still admant that she beat it and the lad was deffo racing cos in her words, "he was trying his hardest you could tell from the look on his face".

Lol women hey!

Its a mad world we live in, the laws of physics dont seem to apply anymore, 115BHP Escorts doing 0-60 in under 7 seconds and 60BHP Saxo's beating 225BHP Meganes haha!

laugh

well we all know 1.1 saxo's are ssooooooooooooooooo fast. i seen one KILL a m3 (pity it was parked up tho raftl )

i remember in the redline mags years ago the editor renton had a corsa gsi with 15's on running 160bhp with the 1.6 his 0-50 was 4.9 where his 0-60 was 6.5.

the drag after 50 on such a car rapidly decreases the motion of the car.

Just shows that even at his age (im guessing hes a reasonable age due to insuring a GTI) u can still be a complete noob liar twunt,no offence

IMHO 60 on the clocks is 60 chewy. All this 10% accuracy thing is a load of bull IMO. 60 will be 60,or very close to, i know my car at 47 is 47 cos i go past one of those radar speed readers that tells u ur speed,most ive passed it at was 47 and it said 47,my clocks said 47.Plus my Terminal at crail was 70MPH and the clocks said 70 as i was passing the line,hence both my cars have been very accurate when it comes to speedo reading
