No substance however good we tuned our TT Coupe (the car we acceptable our champion times successful pre-L500), we ne'er mislaid different regular contention B arsenic soon arsenic we bought the L500.

Funny enough, the fig 1 ranked operator utilized the R32 GT-R V-spec II ’94 to acceptable the world-record time. However, you can’t bargain that car from Brand Central.
