Yea, it looked even better in the metal.
Do they even sell that colour in the UK? Looks a bit like British racing green
As my sons would say that thing is a beast.
Looks awful. even worse than the normal one. At least on the proper gt3 they can say it looks ugly because race car.
Looks mega to me! I sure hope it has a tan interior...
They don't look ugly, but the old ones look still better.
That Porsche is beautiful.
Apart for the Porsche decal down the side, always hated that.
One thing I don't like is the exhaust in the middle. Needs quads.
That 911 certainly looks ace from that angle.
Was following this on the way to the in-laws yesterday.
Very crap picture but I had my hands full and the ride was shaky. I think it was a Stagea, RS Four S. Made by Nissan it turns out.
Nothing needs quads, it just looks silly and fake. Dual/quad systems only really make a difference if they are "true dual" systems (as in separate pipes all the way to the engine), but you never see that on modern cars due to costs and probably noise restrictions
A Stagea is in my dream garage.
997s and earlier used to be (not sure on 991.1s). They look good on good cars, seem a bit pointless on 2 litres and other lower powered cars. I think the newer m3/4s might still be split systems (although the silencer is not that far away.
New Vantage looks silly with the standard dual exit pea shooters, the quad exhaust fills the holes in the bumper and looks much better
Also make an even better noise
But that 911 is best with the dual
To much glue on your presents I suspect, so will make allowances.
I had an Insignia 1.6T petrol which when you looked underneath had a proper dual system including two silencers, but no visible tailpipes at all. Therefore there must have been a good engineering reason.
Sometimes its best not to just make stuff up.
E30 has twin pipes front to back. 3 cylinders for one pipe, 3 cylinders for the other.
Thought it was pretty normal on cars with more than 4 cylinders? Aside from 5 cylinder cars...
But probably joined together at or before the manifold. There's no reason to do it on a 4 cylinder, especially a tiny 1.6...
Why two silencers?
