Impressive stuff indeed but it nearly killed him and he managed only a few metres. At least the D5 did 16km+

We are both wrong. ......the break light switch has shorted and the car had to be recovered back to LR where it sat for three weeks while they figured out what was wrong.

So ... The Volvo can pull TWICE the weight it's rated for?

Think that means the Discovery wins this contest. Thirty times it's rating?

I’m a bit of a night owl. Working shifts doesn’t help the old body clock.

I finally got an exclusive, I’m well chuffed Laughing
