Re: fastest you have been in your GTV
I did a similar thing to Zeg the other month on the A2; it was dark and having just come up from the docks I stopped in the outside lane at the lights and when they changed I planted my foot hard down and went up through the box making progress very quickly in the outside lane but not actually speeding and pulled back into the inside lane and as i approached the next car in the inside lane i looked in my mirror and started to signal to pull out and noticed a car coming up very fast behind so I waited - still signalling and this car pulled up alongside me gradually slowing to my ever decreasing speed and prevented me from pulling out. I was aware he was just sitting beside me at the same speed (now decreasing further as I had reached the car in front which was only doing 50mph).
I was still signalling and getting a bit irritated by this idiot and looked across to see a BiB in an unmarked car and he was staring back at me!
I guess he was blocking me in position ready to stop me whilst doing a vehicle check on my car.
I guess he saw me take off from the lights as he approached and thought I would continue to exceed the limit but on this occasion I hadn't, thankfully. To be honest I never really drive all that fast in the Spider but it is fun at times to use the accelleration if the situation and surroundings permit it.
