Hi, yes both videos are of my car. I knew about the first one but had not seen the second one.
Thanks for finding it.

Good find Paul, I too had seen the first one but not the second one. Richard Hammond was just as useless as he is now just find him annoying!
Do you still have you Venturi Richard, looks amazing if I had the cash I would love to sell mine and have yours, love the colour combo and would love too see how the bi turbo compares to mine.

Hi, yes I still have the car.

Even Hammond says about the lack of turbo lag. Guess I was not making it up then! lol :up
