Well if it was Innes, he comes with a good pedigree - he started his career with Rolls-Royce!! I believe he was a bit of a wag though, so yes, maybe it was him in your car...
The fastest I ever got to was 260kph in the Audi S2 - and I can't name the road!!

Hi, come on guys - Innes died a few years ago, whilst Mirling Stoss is still raking in appearance money.

Is this GPS unit in your car, abl567 - no wonder the transmission howls ! Regards Styria

I think it would do a lot more than howl at the speed! 179mph in a 6.3 would have be around 7000 rpm

Karen did borrow the GPS once, in the Kluger
