Default Fastest car you have been in

Either been a passenger in, or driven.

I got a ride in a noble m400 and was literally speechless when I got out. That thing gripped and PULLED. It had giant sticky rubber and awesome sounding turbos right behind your head! I want one.

Oh and for driven, well I have had my license for a total of about... just over a month lol. So I think my buddies wrx with a 3" turbo back is about the best I've done so far. Hopefully my miata will be the fastest car I have driven after the turbo .

Passenger = Twin-turbo 300zx w/400+rwhp....awesome!

Driver = The turbo Miata! Test drove a new 400hp version GTO one time but it diddent feel as fast as the Miata. This of course does not include bikes!

yes not including bikes, I'd have to say the fastest I've ridden in was a viper pace car at portland international raceway.

possibly the fastest I've driven is either an early wrx (non-sti) or my turbo miata. we'll see which is faster at the next track day!

Fastest was my 68 Chevelle. Monster built 327. Almost too radical to drive on the street. Light it up in any gear. Not as fast as what can be built now with FI but pretty outrageous 25 years ago.

Fastest as passenger? Real Cobra. Racing history since new. Rode with the owner on a shelby club track day recently. He's had the car since 1970. Again, fast but not that fast by modern standards.

Passenger - '94 3-Rotor boosted out the @$$ meth-injected RX7. That thing was a monster!

Driven - '06 Ford GT. Used to work at a Ford dealership, did the Pre-Delivery Inspection on it, which included a fun little drive. lol

Passenger = a friend's 1000+bhp supra.That thing will make you **** your pants it so fast and the power seems like it's neverending.

Driver = Ferrari F360 Modena & Porsche 996 Turbo.The owners pretty much had to pry me out of the cars cause I would not get out of them.

Fastest I've ever driven? Either my car or my buddy's '06 STI w/ a chip and an exhaust. We haven't figured out whose car is faster yet.

I've ridden in a Noble M12 GTO 3R. That thing was really ******* quick. Second fastest would be a friend's twin-turbo G35 sedan. Just a smidge under 400rwhp. That was fun too.

Edit: My dad's got a supercharged E36 M3, but I don't think it's very fast.

You get to drive cars like that for work?? What the hell is the position, person who gets to drive crazy cars?

Oh and I forgot that I drove an E36 M3, but it was a test drive with the owner there, so not a very good drive. I could still feel the power.

Well, my fastest ridden/driven is the same car and seems somewhat subdued compared to yours (but hey, I'm only a year out of HS). Both would apply to my friend's '89 Nissan 240sx with a rb20 swap (skyline engine, 2L 6-cylinder, sounds ridicilously cool). Puts down ~300whp in a fairly light (has been stripped) car.
