Heavy cars are slow. This is the same problem the Challengers and Camaros have. High HP moving a lot of weight.

Granted. I was just saying.

The 2011 Mustang GT with it'* speculated 450HP moves that car around with ease. It'* also one of the safest cars out there with it'* built in safety cage.

Lotus' are actually very safe cars as well, even though they are tiny.

Car'* that are meant to be small, light, and go fast are usually some of the safest cars on the market. Hell, even the Fierro was one of the safest in its day.

I'm sure there a lot more cars than just the Fierro that suffered from that.
