- 2009 Ford Focus RS: Powered by a 2.5L 5-cylinder engine with a K16 turbocharger, packing 300 hp, connected to a front-wheel-drive chassis. The RS's power is enhanced and delivered through a front-differential.
- 2008 Renault Megane R26.R: Powered by a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, producing 227 hp, which is packed through a front-wheel-drive chassis. Due to excessive use of light-weigh material, and taking off the rear-seats, the Megane R26.R only weighs 1100 kilograms. It also hold the record for the fastest FWD car around the Nurburgring in 8:16.9.
Also on last week's Top Gear, James May and Richard Hammond pinned the 2010 Porsche Panamera against UK’s Postal Mail Service. It's one of those awkward Top Gear challenge, but great watch. Top Gear only got the cheapest Panamera S - powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.4L V8, putting-out 394 hp through the rear-wheels.
