Opel Speedster Turbo - Nürburgring Nordschleife 24-05-2010
A la poursuite d'une Porsche pas très bien conduite... :P
A 2:00 la 997 GT3 entre en jeu.
A 2:45 une autre 911 fait un tout droit à Adenauer Forst. :D
A 7:55 les feux oranges clignotent, donc nous roulons lentement mais il n'y a rien.
Pursuing a quite badly driven Porsche. :P
At 2:00 the 997 GT3 comes into play.
At 2:45 another 911 goes straight at Adenauer Forst. :D
At 7:55, the warning lights are on so we slow down a lot, but there's nothing.
Opel Speedster turbo 260ch, R888, Nitron.
VW Scirocco R Cup CNG
Looking for performance as well as economy? We drive the biofuel powered VW Scirocco R Cup CNG race car.
The VW Scirocco R Cup eco-racer is designed to prove that a biofuel or compressed natural gas in this case, is a viable fuel source for exciting, high performance cars.
Forming the grid of a one make race series, the track focused R Cup, developed entirely from the Scirocco R road car, is actually one of the most eco friendly cars Volkswagen produce.
Under the bonnet the standard 2.0 TSI engine remains, as does the slick DSG gearbox but the reality is the CNG fuel source produces 80% less carbon emissions.
Stiffenend, lightened and prepared for track the Scirocco R Cup car replaces the original fuel tank in favour of a compressed gas tank in which to store the low emission, compressed natural biogas.
Although the 222bhp Cup car is 39bhp down on power compared to the road car, the inclusion of a 'press to pass' button allows drivers to call upon an extra 49bhp from the engine, in an attempt to make the racing more exciting for competitors and spectators alike.
So, is a hot hatch powered by compressed natural gas still a hot hatch? Watch the video to find out.

Opel Speedster Turbo Evolution 2010 - five years of driving fast
A short movie about how some small lightweight car can grow into an addictive bullet within few years.
Sorry for the two misspellings in the video: of course it's brake cooling, not "break", and it's a 200 cpsi cat, not "cpi".
Should have done a closer review of the video before posting. Being to busy building up the car, less time for other things. :)
