At @ the 2 minute mark is a Rolls Royce Merlin. @ the 5 minute mark is an Allison. @ 6-61/2 is a DB 605. Another Merlin around 10 minutes.

Indeed, cheap speed has never been more affordable. Camaro Zl1 gets to 60 mph in 3.5 sec for about $63k. A 2013 BMW 335i xdrive coupe (30k miles) does it in 4.6 sec for about $30k. That ride had me yelling for more! My old Z28 felt slow at 5.2.

Best buy right now (imo): 2017 BMW M240i xdrive for about $48k. Gets to 60 in 4.2 with 0.97g of grip. Get out of jail card not included.

I'd rather pick up some power converters at Tosche station.

Perfect ad if your clientele are bank robbers.

I'd need to rob a bank to afford one. But generally, these cars are approaching "super car" performance at a pretty reasonable price.

BMWs eh? You could simply rob it, just like this guy did:

Okay, I admit it, a powerful engine is not my priority. Luxury is! Give me a car with all options, decent motor that gets good gas mileage on the lower end (price wise)I'm on board.

To me a car is a thing that gets me from A to B. An obsolete Ford T, a funny Lada or a VW, it's basically irrelevant.

Ha,ha though I don't think you would want to get out to crank your car up. But I get the gist of it . The car for me has to have power windows!

Power windows, loud exhaust, drop top.

AC. That is all.

That said, (and as much as the 911 is the Bud of cars) the 911 AWD is pretty terrifying

Cheers

Even though I am older (at 60), I still have not developed the discipline to drive high horsepower cars responsibly. My 14-year-old Lexus ES330 is perfect for me. It has 225 hp, but the way it is geared, it's really hard to get in any trouble with it

The best way to beat temptation is to give into it. And, I have....shhhhhh.

AC is nice. And I want it in my car. But to me there is more important things. Like safety features. ABS breaks, for example, is a feature I would not like to be without. Or airbags. My sister was in a carcrash a couple of months ago and thanks to the airbag, and safety belt, she went out of a wrecked car with only bruises. I am sure that other modern features of the car helped keep her safe.

So plenty of safety features I want in my car, but otherwise I want a practical car.

Sweden = Volvos = safety above all

I heard the company is somehow losing ground. Maybe because the competition is trying to offer the same safety too.
