Ok… this is an honest post, no lies.
I was driving yesterday to visit my best friend in the hospital at the University of Pennsylvania. We had been best friends since I was 13 (10 years now) and it was a really ****ty day because basically I was heading to the hospital to see him one last time because of the horrible condition his body is in.
Cruising on 95 I was not in the greatest mood, but when I saw a car coming up fast on me I quickly livened up if only just for a little bit. Well the car turned out to be a brand new, Bentley Continental GT in sliver with dark tint, and a temp tag on the back. He got behind me, got nice and close to my bumper then threw it around me, I got very excited to see how I could do trying to hang with him so I dumped it to 4th and put the peddle down. Shifting was very quick, but to my surprise he was not pulling on me… not pulling at all. In fact it seemed that the moment I hit 6th I had actually closed the gap on us by about 1/2 length from 2 lengths. The race went from about 60mph to 120mph… so it really wasn’t that much of a race. I know it maybe only lasted about 20 seconds, but I was amazed at how well my STi did.
I know many will call BS… hell I would if I didn’t experience it at first hand. I mainly just wanted to share my experience with everyone and maybe get some input. I looked up the specs of the car and saw a ¼ of 12.9… and a hell of a lot of power.
Maybe because his car wasn’t fully broken in yet I was able to hang? Maybe there is a slower version? I really don’t know how it happened… but it did, and I am sure he was annoyed with his 150K car.
