The Golf V R32 is a fast car.
It´s heavy but 0-100 kph in 6s is with the dsg and launch-control.
The Focus RS with 305 hp turbo-engine is not much faster and even at the TopGear-Test Track only 1 second faster.
But the sound is godlike.

It's a bit strange how the Mazda 3 MPS (Mazdaspeed3) murders this car around the RING (8:39 vs. 8:49) and most other tracks but NOT on the TOP GEAR track. But then again Top Gear says the 3 MPS is a torque steering / under steering pig, etc. which is massively overstated. They either didnt push the 3MPS to its true limit; settled for a shitty 1:32 just to prove a false point or something else.
