2003 Top Speed Comparison Test Drive

How fast? The question is as old as the automobile itself.  The answer depends on your criteria: 0-60, the quarter mile, road course lap times, or,  the ultimate bench racing fantasy number, top speed.
Ascertaining a car’s flat out max isn’t easy.  Factors insignificant at 60, 80, or even 100 mph – the soundness of a car’s hardware and the driver’s software, aerodynamics, road surface, even local wildlife, for example – can become downright grave as you reach for 200.

This group of high stakes gamblers is as diverse as any Motor Trend  had ever assembled.  The players range from the $284,850 Lamborghini Murcielago to a car costing less than one ninth as much, the $30,062 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Horsepower was just one measure of performance, spans from the Mitsu’s 271 to the Lambo’s 571.  While each qualifies as a wild child, they challenged the performance spectrum from unique angles.
