Impressive for a 30 year old car. Very low weight helps.

Good point. On the 200-0 the age starts to show, although 140 meters is still respectable result.

On a high speed braking run the brakes have enough time to heat up and show the limits of the braking surface size, material and caliper power. 100-0 is 50% braking power and 50% modulation (ABS), 200-0 is more about the power. Modern cars have huge brake rotors and zillion piston calipers, as well as efficient ABS.

Cars have got so heavy these days that its easy to forget how good a 260 PS car can be.
