    Had a 2012 green Hyundai Accent before my VT. Didn't care for it. Before that I had a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Both of these cars were turtle slow. Now that I have the VT I feel like I drive a NASCAR sometimes.

    And i modded it to the limits of what was available other than turboing it.
    My 87 rx7 still completely destroyed it.

    My wrangler was a turtle. It was slow as hell but would climb anything I could put my front wheels on.

    Remember the yaris hybrid concept that has some odd 400 horsepower? That would be absolutely hilarious to see those massly produced.

    My 2011 Accent hatch did 0-60 in 11 seconds flat. I had the 5 speed manual so it was at least somewhat fun to drive. It was so cheap that I drove it like a beater. No hub caps and I'd ramp train tracks and drive through any kind of crap. I miss it at times.

    Never driven anything with less than 135hp prior to this. And I am unfortunately spoiled with my Audi S4. Although I'm trying to eclipse that V8 power with the VT. lol

    I miss my accent too i really didnt care what happened to it cost me 9k. Beat the crap out of it drove it like i stole it everywhere so much fun in a slow car. took it off roading and just did everything i thought was cool to it..
    still beat some honda boys with it considering how slow it was.

    now i park miles away from everyone i inspect my car for scratches and dents more than i drive it.
