Performance Departments

I had a rather entertaining thought today. What if every manufacturer's in-house performance department got a hold of their manufacturer's entire model line-up like AMG does with Mercedes? How badass would an SVT Taurus or a NISMO G37 be? Heck, even a Mazdaspeed 2 sounds appealing! Thoughts? Anything specific you'd like to see?

A Mazdaspeed Miata with a RX-8 engine!

I think a CR-Z Type R would be pretty cool.

And maybe a TRD GT-86- that car could use a horsepower boost.

A Legacy STi would be fun too...

Add me a BMW M7 and both versions of the Audi RS8- the sedan and the mid engined supercar! Why the heck not?

Add a Dodge SRT Dart while we're at it!

Wow, this is a fun game.

Yup!

I think the Mini Cooper would be a JCW car though.

I think you're right, but they haven't made a new one I think.

Honda is a tricky one- do you call it a Type R or a Mugen?

A Dacia Sandero RS would be hilarious.

And brilliant, actually.

Japan gets awesome everything. You can get a 300hp Nissan Pathfinder over there. Who needs Nismo anyway :P

funny that nobody sofar has mentioned the Abarth treatment of Fiat products...it is exactly what the thread started has in mind.

Not much they can do here in the states besides make a 500L Abarth which would be very fascinating! A Bravo Abarth would be pretty slick and a Doblo Abarth would be downright funny
