I know, cars have become so much more efficient it's not even funny. Appliance cars today have the same horsepower ratings that supercars did 20 years ago. Even with all the driving aids included on newer cars, I doubt many people really make use of the extra power.
the contour svt was much more effecient than the taurus sho.....it's funny who would have thought that the more you refine yourr engine the more power can be made more readily.Perfect example is the new police intercepter,TWIN TURBO ALL WHEEL DRIVE....GO FORD!!!
