Those little Mini Cooper S cars are some of the most under rated cars around. They have great handling and wonderful power. I would actually like to have one.

Which reminds me, I saw a guy on the internet who put a Honda b16 VTEC in a old one. It was turbo charged and making something like 300hp? The damn thing ran a 9 sec 1/4 mile!

Mini coopers make4 good track cars to. Theres a guy out here that drives a red mini and the only mods i have noticed on the car are some massive brembos, wheels tires and the exhaust doesant sound stock. Dont know what he did to the engine but out at the road course hes beating 1000cc race bikes by almost 2 seconds.

The Ion redline is the new saturn Ion with some suspension work and the 205 Cobalt ss engine. Ive sure youve seen the comercial where the guys drivibng along and he goes well i gues i could have got a BMW z3 or z4 (cant rember which one he says) then hes like but it would have been slower.

I dont think they make the ion redline anymore. Sales sucked. Thats one of the reasons they made the Cobalt SS

I hate that commercial. It may have been slower by half a second. But it would have the great suspension and styling of BMW.

I'd take the srt4 over the redline anyday. But I'd probably take the cobalt ss over the srt4

The Cobalt SS IS the Saturn Ion Redline.

Not really. The ss is the superior car. have you ever tried to drive a manual ion redline. The gauges are mounted iin the center console and its almost impossible see the tach. Very imparing when it comes to high performance driving. The ion also has dent proof plastic body panels. IM j/k kidding i know what your saying. Under the skin there the same just like the f-body twins. But dont forget the ss has those ultra sexy "skyline-esque" tyailights. Oh i love those.

I like the Ion Redline's styling over the SRT-4 and the Cobalt SS. Friend of mine has one. But as neat as some new cars look, they STILL don't have that bad-ass in-your-face look the 98+ Trans Am WS6 Ram Air or the 98+ Camaro SS had.
