I would think the tiburon would be... i know some cars "feel" faster than other cuz of there rear shocks. Think about how one of those ride things feel like there accelerating. Buy leaning backwards... if the car transfers alot of weight to the back when accelerating it will feel faster than a car that doesn't.. my 280zx was a perfect example of this... was very slow but it felt very fast. I beleive ride height may also have something to do with the feel of a cars speed.

If the Escort in question has 110 hp, and I believe it does, it should do 0-60 about 10.5 seconds. The slowest times I've ever seen for an
auto Tib have still been in the 9's.
The Tib should win.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
