Or willy-waving on one or two car forums.craig said:Sad thing is that most drivers are not skilled and therefore the extra oomph the SV8 and forthcoming R have over the standard models is wasted and reduced to willy waving talks down the pub about BHP
I have also driven both as I orginally ordered an SV8 but then decided to move further away from work so swapped for the diesel. They do have a different character but thats not the point here. The point here really is how quick it is and I was saying that if you put an average driver in the SV8 and a brilliant driver in the diesel you would get a good run for your money.d4ve said:Having driven both I'd say the SV8 is quite different in character to the diesel and really is a lot more rapid, both in the bends and by virtue of more power. There's a bit more to it than just willy waving IMO.
