Cool Fastest car- stock

What do you think is the fastest car from productiion? 0-60, 1/4 mile or top end. Say within the last 15 years and under $50,000 new. I am not talking about exotics but a car that the average person could buy. Just wondering what every one thinks. I drove a GTI Golf VR6 last night as well as a Lexus LS400(over $50,000 new) and they were both pretty quick. The VR6 has a 0-60 of 7.1 sec. from the factory.

Well, this kind of thing isn't really open for debate, as it's simple stats. Remember, what $50k would buy 15 tears ago is different than what it would buy today.

Under 50 grand, the quickest would be Mustangs, Camaros, Trans Ams, the new GTO, the new Charger SRT-8, etc. All you have to do is google the specs and there you go.

Yeah, if you go back a couple years, the new cost of some serious fast hardware is under $50k. I was goiong to list it, but the way he was talking, it would have counted as some sort of "exotic." Which it really isn't.

I'd say a couple year old Z06 would have been in the right price range, new, and that's about the fastest out there.
