    In the mid-80's...the popular Renault "LeCar" was a common little vehicle.

    Renault made an insane version of it called the "R5 Turbo"
    The LeCar was front engine, they moved it to mid-engine for the R5. Designed for Rally racing, they made street legal versions...several versions starting at 160hp...going up past 400.

    Even the base R5 models could do 0-60 in the mid 6's....and it only got faster from there. By todays standards, nothing to raise an eyebrow at, but back in the early 80's...there were insane little cars.

    GMC Typhoon











    The GMC Typhoon was a high-performance version of the GMC Jimmy SUV. Produced in 1992 and 1993, the Typhoon was based on the 1991 GMC Jimmy SUV.

    Both the GMC Syclone and Typhoon (SyTy) trucks featured a Mitsubishi TD06-17C/8cm2 turbocharger and Garrett Water/Air intercooler attached to a 4.3 L LB4 V6 engine with forged pistons, main caps, head gaskets, intake manifolds, fuel system, exhaust manifolds, and a 48mm twin-bore throttle body from the 5.7 L GM Small-Block engine. All SyTy's had a GM 700R4 transmission (4L60) 4-speed automatic transmission and a BorgWarner 1372(Syclone)/4472(Typhoon) transfer case splitting torque with 35% forward and 65% to the rear wheels. Both trucks featured all-wheel drive, upgraded brakes, and sport modifications to the standard suspensions. Unlike the Syclone, the Typhoon featured an air-operated self-leveling rear suspension. Output was officially 280 hp (209 kW) and 360 ft·lbf (488 N·m), but some stock Typhoons have been measured at over 300 hp (224 kW) on a dynamometer.

    The Typhoon was capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds and could do a quarter-mile run in 14.1 seconds at 95 mph (153 km/h). Car and Driver was impressed, comparing the Syclone's performance favorably to the Ferrari 348ts, Chevrolet Corvette, and Nissan 300ZX Turbo.

    One of my first (and still to this day) favorites...
    The Cobra 427.

    Back in the '60s...the Cobra 289 could do 0-60 in the mid 3s. It could also do 0-100 and back to 0 in under 10 seconds. Quite a feat at that time considering tire technology of the '60s.

    One of my favorite cars. If I win the lotto, it will surely be in my stable.

    Maybe I will buy a ticket today
