5 sleepers you don't wanna race

I like the last car a lot. I wonder what is in it.

I think the porsche guy was no longer racing when the 2nd golf passed it.
But I was unprepared for the maxima sequence, the determination, intensity, concentration and underdog ability to outrun a much more expensive car was amazing, he did not blink an eye, jolted forward at take off in anticipation of the pull like a horseman with his horse. That was perfect predator ambush instinct pouncing on its prey, the porsche. That guy deserves an exotic. It's all fun to watch but these sleepers are really just a freak show they sure can go fast but loose all the poise and class doing it, their chassis cannot handle the power. That 909 HP turbo E34 M5 suspension was dangerously jumping up and down. And those GTI are well known to uncontrollably go in the vegetation, isn't that a FWD anyway ? An M3 can easily be controlled if it looses traction, but those hatchback GTI don't give the driver a chance. If I see cars like this trying hard, I let them go. It's not worth to put a legit fast car at risk from these ricer to take you in a crash. Power is cheap, harnessing power counts more.

Fast in a straight line has a target demographic. None of those would be road course driveable at ten tenths by anyone less than a world class professional and would dead lesser capable drivers in a lap or two...IMHO. Nonetheless, impressive that none of the five ended up as crumpled heaps of twisted metal while attempting to go fast in a straight line.

While front-wheel-drive has inherent limitations, the GTI actually handles very well, so don't sell it short. Is it in the same class as the M3? Not even close, but it costs only about a third as much and will beat nearly anything else in its price range.

That was supposed to be a joke. Same as RWD = right wheel drive

I'm well aware of what the GTi handles like. It has a good chassis and entertaining engine for its class. I've driven it very extensively when I lived in Barcelona and did more mountain runs than I can count in it.

I greatly prefer RWD cars and ended up buying a 330Ci instead of the GTi. My friend who owns the GTi drove the 330 back to back a few times on those mountain runs and a year later he sold the GTi and bought a Z4MC. I kept the 330Ci for years until I bought an E46M.

The GTi at 25k makes good sense. However, I am puzzles with the people who show up to track days in Focus RS (~35k) or a Golf R and talk about their car as if it were fast... they are not. At 25k, FWD or FWD based AWD is fine. For 35k it is not.
