Review:175mph in the middle of London

Autocar have included ALPINA again in a select gathering of fast machines in the attempt to gain the first official Guiness world record for highest speed achieve in London.

The ALPINA went first and without much drama, but with an awful lot of mechanical sophistication, logged an effortless three-way average of 151.5mph. On its best run the 493bhp B5 clocked 155.4mph, proving just how much the wind was gusting on the runway that day, hence the need for an average over three runs.

Next: (Peak / Average)
Flying Spur 157.4 / 156.6mph.
Shelby Daytona 158.7 / 159mph
Vauxhall Maloo VXR 160.8 / 158.8mph
BMW M6 162.5 / 162.3mph
Porsche 911 turbo 162.6 / 161.6mph
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 167mph / 165.4mph
Ford GT 174.3 / 173.8mph
Mercedes SLR McLaren 175.7 / 175.1mph
