So I'm coming back from lunch with some coworkers, 5 were in the Mazda, 1 was with me. I started behind the Mazda on the onramp (arund 2 cars length), and it took a while but I ended up passing him. :bannana:
I should add we were already doing around 30~40mph when I decided to floor it R)
I was actually impressed of the power of the Mazda, I thought it was just another small wagon but it has 256 bhp! 0-60 in 6.2.

Such a good feeling.... ;-)

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!

Well yes, should I add I was also top-down... ;-)

Anyways, the Mazda was a 2007 I believe, so it wasn't the newest one.
And of course, 2 occupants vs 5 ended up giving me the edge :D
