The Bonnie is probably heavier than all these cars too.

I cant do that in my Z28, I'll just lose the rear end on the corners under hard acceleration, but the Bonnie just keeps pulling it around the corner, its great.
That is about the most fun you can ever have in a car. My buddy with a 97 metro sedan 1.3L got to ride in my car, I went out to the old part of town with the two lane 10mph turns, and blew Matt'* mind. His car sits on like 115'*, 70HP 74 FT LBS. I manhandled his car through at about 15 with the tires screaming. The bonne made it through at 50 smooth as cream, and he left finger dents in the door handles. Suprised doesn't even begin to describe it....

Weight of our Bonne'* depends on the model year and options. Mine weighs in at a hefty 3800 lbs with a full tank (150 lbs) of fuel. Load it up, as it normally is, with 4 passengers and a bit in the trunk and it tips the scales at 4,500 lbs.

Power to weight ratio defines how quickly it will accelerate but I agree that it'* torque that pulls you up to speed and the 280 ft-lbs is a little under rated.
