How about a 1000 hp minivan
Pontiac GTO. Nice Grand Prix bro.
Put it into neutral , rev it to 4k and slam it into drive. I call it scientific testing.
That smoke is the clutch and not the head gaskets
Volvo V70R seems like it’s gotta be on this list, especially if it’s first-generation (could also expand this entry to include the pre-1997 850 T-5R’s). Holds that old boxy Swedish look (plus, Jalop sensibilities notwithstanding, it’s a friggin’ wagon), with a 0-60 time under 7 seconds even in the late ‘90s.
P.J. O’Rourke had it right on this one: The fastest car is any rented one.
Any rental car. Regardless of the 0 to 60 time, I’m going to find it.
Cliche, but I had to.
Here is a regular car entry:
The last Ford Taurus SHO
It looks so incredibly stable. I would not be even the slightest bit nervous to drive it over 10 mph.
The Toyota Camry hits 60 mph in around 6 seconds. That seems fast for beige to me.
The Tango EV. Apparently it had a 0-60 time of under 4 seconds while looking like someone took a normal car and squished it.
Any newer Camry with a V6 or an older RAV4 that had the V6. I had a 2010 RAV4 with the V6 and for a time, it was the quickest car in Toyota’s lineup.
Lotus Carlton. It’s a Vauxhall (or Opel depending on the country) Omega sedan with a twin-turbo I6 making almost 400hp. Top speed is nearly 180mph.
Based on every review of the TRX I recall, oddly enough, the thing actually handles...quite well...on-road.
