I'm more interested in why they call #9 - the Civic Type R - "STUPID FAST"

I mean...it's impressive and it would blow a stock turbo ST's doors off in almost every situation...but we drive cars that are not fast. I'd call it quick at best, as well as the Focus RS.

I haven't driven one, but I agree, haven't heard the term "stupid fast" throw around with an American-sold Honda.

I would agree... the 19 SS is gross. but the ZL1 isn't ... and I don't know anyone thinks it is.

I mean it is all personally opinion, otherwise they wouldn't have designed it that way

I can't believe the Renault Kwid didn't make that list...

Pretty much the fastest fwd car you can get. Look at some of the cars its faster than at the Ring:
7:43.8 - Type R
7:43.65 - GTR in 2010
7:44 - v10 R8 in '09
7:44 - freakin Zonda (lol, ok from '02 but still)
7:44.42 - AMG SRS in '10

If i would have told you a fwd civic would be faster than any of those cars when they were new, you would have laughed out off the site.

Even think about it, in 2010 the Gumpert Apollo was considered to about as crazy as a supercar gets, balls to the wall n' all. Yet it is still only 20 seconds faster than a Honda civic is today. And you can get around 18 fully loaded CTR for what the Apollo was back then...
So yeah. For a completely stock and Road legal production car that is FWD, it is stupid fast.

probably not available in enough markets, the author of the article is based in Detroit and might not even know what a Kwid is
Chap can consider himself lucky then, because in my opinion, it's HIDEOUS!
