It could get a Cat C marker if it was the grille that is nicked and a claim was made. Hell maybe even a wheel trim on this would too.

2007 Honda Civic EX CTDi - The reliable runner that is like the family pet.
2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying

Seems bloody cheap if it is even half good. Wonder why? Could the CAT C marker affect it that much? Wonder if that one is an 'Active ride' car, 'F' could be change over year and Active is desirable.

Original power was 180 bhp. Pretty derisory for a near 7 litre V8 but it was all about torque man! The engine was designed to have loads of torque from very low down the rev range and peak torque occured at just 1600 rpm. The original 6.2 version was just 160 bhp...

When RR were trying/needing to get more power from the engine, due to the design of the heads etc it was almost impossible without an expensive re-design as the heads are optimised for this low down oomph, trying to get power (or even more revs - limit is 4500) increased was impossble without some form of forced induction. So, TURBOCHARGER!

Incidentally, the crank on all RR V8 engines is a work of art and could take a massive power increase, which is why the engine could go from 160 to 420 hp with the same crank and rods etc. I believe that when VW (spit!) renewed the engine (due to licencing agreement with BMW coming to an end) the same bottom end went to nearly 550 hp but it cost VW £300 million to update the engine to produce more power and to pass current and future emissions regs. The whole company was only £330 million...

I’d be surprised if the actual torque output were all that impressive. I learned the best way to guesstimate torque and horsepower of yank engines was to halve the engine size.

By 2006 almost all the 1959-specification engine components had been upgraded, so that the current twin-turbo 6.75-litre engine produces over 150% more motive power and torque than at the beginning of its life, has 40% better fuel economy, and produces 99.5% less exhaust emission. In the current Brooklands and Mulsanne, the 6.75-litre engine produces 395 kilowatts (537 PS; 530 bhp) and 1,050 newton metres (774 lbf·ft) of torque

I haven't updated in a while as there hasn't been much going on with the old Spur, but today I finally finished the Peugeot 202 so the Spur can get a bit of attention tomorrow. I now have the V5 and it was only 2 owners before me so not too bad and finally the correct ignition key from flying spares. It was third time lucky on the key though. The 1st one they got the numbers mixed up, the second they cut the right number but on the wrong blank. The third one works perfectly so all the dash can go back together. I have removed the gear selector motor and dropped that in with am auto electrician to sort the seized motor. Tomorrows job is going to be replacing the broken exhaust manifold, after selling the tool kit for £150 I though I may as well reinvest and ordered a secondhand manifold.

Right after doing very little else to it other than fitting the manifold which was a right bitch I have now sold it. I flogged the hub caps during the week for another £150 and now the rest of the car has been loaded onto an artic and is off to Romania. I got £1100 for the car so not a bad profit in that one. So if anyone finds a sub £1000 Roller or Bentley let me know as I am always interested.
