Stupidity Is Slowly Killing The Sports Car

At speeds above 85 mph, it felt like a Broyhill convert-a-bed sofa with a 500 watt stereo built into the seat cushions; you had no sense of how fast you were actually going.

A sports car usually has something of substance to back up its show.

The GMC Syclone: More Sports Car Than Truck

Car and Driver recorded a test model doing 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds, with a quarter-mile time of 13.6 seconds at 93 mph. To say that the Syclone isnt your run-of-the-mill vehicle would be a slight understatement.
