Most , especially in the UK , were tuned to stage 3 packages . 440hp (330kw). They weren’t slow.

Why is this thing so slow by today's standards when other special high-performance trim cars back then can still give cars today a run for their money?

On the contrary. This was the most successful racing car of its day, and beat the countach around the eboladrome.
