I recently spent some time in the Viper ACR. It's quite a package and adds a ton of performance for not a lot of money.

This experience got me thinking. What other cars need a focused performance option package for the hard core enthusiast?

A few came to mind:
-VW GTI
-BMW 128i/135i
-Nissan 350Z
-Mazda RX-8

What do you all think? What other cars need an ACR-type package?

Definitely the 135i capable of 389hp with a DINAN program, but I also wish Toyota would bring back the MR2 with the TRD supercharger, and the Mazda RX7 with a Turbo 4 but call it a Miata Coupe. If Pontiac added a turbo V6 based on the LS2 to the Solstice with 370hp then that would be the end of Porsche and BMWWink

Thanks svcSTi, all good ideas.

How about:
-A Honda Fit with the Civic Si motor?
-Chevy Aveo with a Sky Red Line engine?
-Hyundai Accent with the the Vera Cruz V-6 stuffed in the back, RWD

It's svxSTi, as in Subaru.

You lost me on the Hyundai, although I've been thinking about a Toyota Yaris with a GTS 1.8L or a Suzuki Hatchback with a motorcycle V-twin to gain a brand signature. Wink
