Car: 2004 VW GTI 1.8T



626 HP supercharged V8, 3.8 seconds from 0-60, top speed of 208 MPH.

Sounds pretty good right? I don't think so, and here's why:

3748 pound dry weight, 5 speed automatic transmission, and the fact that it looks like a retarded SL. This car is more than just "uncool"; this car is a bastardization of all that is good about supercars. It tries to be a racecar and luxury car all at once and it ends up being worth less than the sum of its parts. I'm whipping out the MJU card on this one, personally.
