Other Vehicle

Post by FrazerD » Fri Aug 24, 2018 12:48 pm

Hi folks,

Because I’m not picking my RS4 up until the start of September, I thought I would post some photos of my other vehicle.

It’s a 6.6l straight 6 turbo with 217hp and boosting to 235hp, 950nm of torque and a top speed of 63kph. Transmission is taken care of with a continually variable gearbox. It’s got hydro-pneumatic self levelling suspension with 4 wheel steer, selectable 4 wheel drive and diff lock. Wheels are 30” with solid centres wrapped in Michelin 600/70 tyres.

Interior is black leather with yellow stitching, air suspended, heated with lumbar support. Kenwood DAB head unit with bluetooth, electric and heated mirrors, led lights, automatic hvac.

I’m sure most of you are wondering what it is...

My JCB Fastrac 4220

Just for a laugh but enjoy.

Cheers :thumbs:

Aye just a few, I just work on the farm so thankfully I don’t have to pay any of the bills, especially when things break all on their own :sekret:

Haha, I nearly got the guy who was taking the photos, don’t want to get too close although the smell clears the sinuses.

Haha, the days of tractors sounding nice have gone thanks to tier 4 emissions and adblue. If you have a spare 5 minutes, YouTube an old case magnum.

The book price for my Fastrac was £175k. Like I said above, thankfully I don’t pay the bills.

Cheers :thumbs:
