The new Mazdaspeed 3 has almost the same HP and Torque as the 350, so it get's pretty close if driven correctly. It is front wheel drive, so it is at a traction disadvantage from slow speed and while it is cornering.
It's good fun for the money, if you can stomach front wheel drive (grocery-cart!) and fixed roof.
I am sure your passenger was happier then his were!
