Agreed the Challenger is a bit of a boat and is not "fast" relative to most modern performance-oriented European and Japanese cars, but given the specs on the A4 (and I'm assuming it was a 2009) that still seems somewhat hard to swallow. You sure:
a) dude was racing you
b) it wasn't an SE (which has only a V6 and is downright slow)

That said, focusing on hard metrics on a car like this is somewhat beside the point. I would never get a Challenger if I was looking for the best handling, fastest car or if I was looking for a luxurious interior. It's appeal is hard to pin down...as i said in the original entry, all I knew was that when I got out of the car I had a stupid grin on my face. That's not nothing.
