Methinks BMWobbleyou have been a bit tardy on the 'fastest estate' score... :D

Yep, MG made a fast version awhile back and so did Volvo at one time... :)

I've seen reference of this doing a recorded max of 225.61mph - according to the BMW write up referred to by Zeb the BMW can only muster a mere 224mph :?:

the G-Power car is for on the road - so could be used everyday and still be capable of 224 whereas the above has to be trailered everywhere!

Also, if you read, it's not BMW but a tuning company.

Problem was that MG Rover didn't bother telling the press etc at the time of Bonneville! Good old BMW copying our stuff again, can't think of their own ideas lol.

Not as fast, but for pure barking at the moon madness!! More than 200MPH, on ICE, in a softtop.
