Ultimate Dream Garage: 200-299 HP Edition

Recommended Posts

Alright, we're moving on. For us guys who really like the smaller stuff and cars with that 'point and squirt' vibe, this one may cause some headaches. There is an absolute plethora of fantastic cars in this range that will surely make it difficult to narrow down a list. In terms of sheer driver's cars, this may very well be the most stacked bracket we will be working with. Have fun!

Rules-

1) Max of 5 choices.

2) Must be production units.

3) These are your only vehicles.

4) Any era and market is allowed.

5) Cars MUST have AT LEAST 200 HP, but NO MORE THAN 299 HP. As rated by the MFR.

off the top of my head, since our family had one,  '91 camaro RS...ok, so maybe this wan't rated over 200... :(

we did have a couple w-bodys, but i'd go with some super charged one.

Having a hard time finding worthy candidates? Or having trouble narrowing them down?

Well first it was finding worthy candidates that I want as toy cars... Now I went over and have to narrow them down. lol

Tried to not make all of these things I usually choose haha. 

 

16 Beetle R-Line 6 speed SEL (love my bug, but this has slightly more HP, better tuned suspension, sunroof, lighting package etc that mine is missing).  17 was out of the question because of no manual and I don't care for the new black cladding on the R-Line.  210 HP

That's quite a bizarre list there, @Stew.

With the exception of the trailhawk I was trying to think of things nobody else would choose.  I could literally drive myself nuts in this bracket lol.

Im having a rough time with this.

1.  1974 Pontiac Trans Am

Why 1974. Because she was rated at 290 HP with the 455 SD as the 1973 is rated above the cut off point. The 1977-1979 Trans Ams barely made 200.  Its kind of a blur but I still get to have a 455 big block V8 with 290 horsies...I get the pre-catalytic converter mess too  and while the shaker hood was not functional, I  could remove the back plate easily...

2. 1994-1996 Chevrolet Impala SS. 260 Horsepower.

3. E39 BMW 540i

4.4 V8 rated between 282 and 291 HP. Saw one the other day in mint condition and I wanted it so bad!!! (you did not read that last part)

4. 1st generation Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0 V8 250 HP

5. 1987 Buick Grand National GNX

Rated at 276 HP

@oldshurst442 I need that GNX in my lineup! I thought about it for just a second and thought it had to have 3xx hp. That's what I get for assuming...

i actually saw what had to have been one today because it was suuuper clean, while I was driving. Made me want to whip a u-turn and follow it for a bit with my mouth wide open drooling.

I agree. I really liked your list, btw.

OK, so we have beaten this bracket to death in terms of the same cars over and over...

4 cars I am most thinking of to replace the Jetta...

GTI

WRX

Focus ST

Civic SI.

Going to copy Olds on the Buick GNX...might also take a grand national.
