Talking Polished the floor with it !!!!!!!!!!!

Came out of my gym yesterday and this guy in a 2002 or 2003 Hyundai Tiburon decided to test my abilities. I was in second gear and he changed lanes behind me and punched it. I dropped the hammer and gave him an ass whipped from hell. By the end of 3rd gear I was doing close to 150 and I let off. Must have had him by 5-6 cars. He got served !!!!

LOL built like crap so therefore it must run like crap. The thing is the face expression on him seemed like he though he actually may have had a chance. Too bad to disappoint him

hahaha. oh man thats funny. lol


Yeah but that is true, what do people excpect? 40K new and 19K new? there are reasons you pay money originally for the car. Plus i think that the V6 only has 140hp, and those bodies arent excactly made of carbon fibre.

v6 dual muffler one has about 178?180 hp and alot of low end torque. I test drove once, and It was suprisingly fast...The interior was very clean and very good looking sport seats. v6 GSR model? not cheap, something like 29k?30k?.......personally If I have to buy v6 ones I will pay more and buy europeans..

I agree with mpower1226, 170HP in the V6 Model. They are fast.
I probably wouldn't buy on either, but look at the specs below.

1999 2003
BMW Hyundai
328i Tiburon GT
5Spd 6Spd Manual

0-30 mph 2.30 s 2.20 s
0-40 mph 3.90 s 3.70 s
0-50 mph 5.30 s 5.10 s
0-60 mph 7.40 s 7.18 s
0-70 mph 9.60 s 9.30 s
0-80 mph 12.10 s 12.20 s
0-90 mph 15.70 s 15.60 s
0-100 mph 19.60 s 20.30 s

.... they are definitely not a poor mans sports car. $29-30K out the door.
