.... our crappy laws don't let new drivers to drive V8s or "high powered
Where do you live?
And if that's the law, why not just buy yourself a turbo 4-cylinder?
Forgot to mention that all turbocharged and supercharged cars are illegal for new drivers as well (except a list of like 3 cars which produce like 40kw lol). This is in NSW Australia.
The whole system is flawed though. A V6 Nissan 350Z (which is about 208kw i think) is on the prohibited vehicle list, yet a Holden Commodore with a 3.6L V6 rated at 210kw is perfectly legal. In some states they exempt turbo cars which are under 125kw/tonne power-weight ratio, so a TT Supra with a power-weight ratio of 133kw/tonne is illegal, but a Civic Type R with a power-weight ratio of 150kw/tonne is perfectly legal with zero hassle.
If they do bring the power-weight ratio exemption to NSW then I could get a Skyline R32 GTS, but its a 22year old car with no ABS, airbags or traction control........Then the R34 GT-T would be illegal for me even though it's 10 years newer with ABS, airbags, and traction control.......Again another crappy and flawed system as it limits people to old cars with zero safety features......
Sorry for thread hijhack lol
