Death of the sports car…petrol hits £1.22 for optimax and £1.35 for BP Ultimate

June 4, 2008

Will we ever see a fury of sports cars in the future?  We’ll look back on the 90s/early millenium at all the Cosworths, Subarus and Skylines to find things far more subdued.

With Jap imports making up a huge portion of sports cars due to their much cheapness and reliability, it appears the petrol will kill them.  A Jap import car needs 100RON or Optimax/BP Ultimate otherwise it will detonate under load.  At £1.35 max per gallon, wtf!

Soon speed will be for the rich and the careless.  But I’m sure fuel costs will keep this kind of activity to a minimum.
