Porsche 908: not crashed
TG gets behind the wheel of a priceless Porsche 908 racer...in front of 100,000 people at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that it's seriously quick. The top speed is 180mph (not that I got within a third of that today) but the way it picks up that speed is really impressive. There's no delay with it - the only reluctance to the power delivery comes from your own right foot as the throttle is surprisingly stiff. Get past that and it's amazing how quickly and easily it revs. The rev counter struggles to keep up because the needle moves in sticky, jerky increments. Back off the gas and the pop and burble lets you know the 908 isn't happy going slowly.
