Just to sort out this whole mpg bullshit, a US gallon is considerably smaller than an Imperial gallon which is why these mileages seem so completely unrealistic.
For example 33 mpg in the US would only be 27 mpg in the UK. Therefore Jeremy was actually having to get about 48mpg out of the A8 for our colonial friends.

You got that backwards. 30mpg for us is roughly 36 mpg for you guys.

I believe that one horse actually manages to provide something like 14-15 horsepower. Oh yea, and it only weighs 1/4 of a ton. And the race was completely faked to begin with.


i'm going to have to pick you up on a part of that

"and the race was faked to begin with"

did you see a car driving? did you see a horse galloping?

yes?

can't have been fake (qed)

It is ENTIRELY within the realm of possibility that the race was faked.
I don't think it was, but it was a really stupid test.

Why? Because the discussion is controversial and emotional? As long as there aren't any personal insults, I always welcome controversial and emotional discussions.

George Orwell once said: "If freedom means anything at all, then it's the right of telling people what they do not want to hear".
