    Hold on, guys. The Sprite, and it's cousing the MG Midget (which I've owned 2 of) are traditional small-bore sports cars. My later Midget, with the 1275CC engine, did 13 second 0-60, which seems slow. But when you drive a car that is not much bigger than the average go kart, even 60 mph feels like you're doing 150! It felt like it was running a 5-6 second 0-60, so the feeling of fun driving is definitely there.

    These car were designed to be raced in the under 1 liter classes. The earlier Sprites, the "Bugeye" versions, are still successful road racers today.

    You really need to drive one of these cars before commenting on how slow they are.<!-- Signature -->

  5. Re: Slow Ass

    Here's an EXCITING race - this car vs. a Yugo! Who do you think will reach the finish line first? It'll only depend on the driver's strength, because either one will be pushing for a while. I think the Yugo's going to win, because it has heated rear windows, which will keep his hands warm.<!-- Signature -->

  11. With its 50 hp and its 0-60 in a whopping 20 seconds, this car is an official slow ass, but it kinda pretty. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercarforums.com/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

  14. Re: Slow Ass

    EXCUSE !?!

    What should they excuse for ? And an apologize to YOU ? - Please don't make me laugh, idiot.

    You actually have no idea what this extraordinary car is all about; just one hint: you can't reduce a car to only one single parameter equaling performance to judge it. Perhaps you're not able to do something else; well, that's sad on the one hand, but on the other it's a relief to never see someone like you driving such a special little thing.

    Don't worry, in thirty years time the average car will make the Impreza look slow.
