What i want to know is - was there another car in the same category as the Superboss elsewhere in the world which was faster. I`m not talking more power - i`m talking about taking the entire package and comparing in stock form to the Superboss.

Before you start jumping on your SR20VE`s and Beams and whatever else - fair is fair and we have to compare technology and the cars available at the time - so if you are gonna claim that some car out there outside of South Africa was faster than the Superboss then it has to meet the following criteria :

1. it must be a production car
2. it must be 2 litre capacity or less
3. It must be 4 cylinder and normally aspirated
4. car must be stock standard and you can only compare factory specs (car must preferably have been tested)
5. it must be a 1990 model or have been manufactured before 1990 (every year new technology comes out - comparing a 1991 or later model will be unfair no matter how small the year difference is)
6. you must compare 0 - 100kph, and 1km terminal speed.
7. you can compare any car as long as it is factory standard and went into production from any country in the world.

Personally i do not think there was anything as fast as the Superboss in 1990 - Unless there was some sort of limited edition that went into production elsewhere in the world which was a race-bred machine.

In a straight line nothing could touch it,if they focused the same attention to handling,there would be more around today!!

Still an epic car :thumb:

true - but there must be something that at least comes close.

The Superboss was by no means a "standard" car. It was built in limited numbers for amalgamation so it could take on the BMW's and others on the tracks around here. And that's exactly where the equation goes out the window, because what exactly then constitutes a "standard" car? Would you allow the BMW 333i which was a local car only, because we couldn't get the M3 at the time, also built specifically for the purposes mentioned.?

Agreed, nothing much came close to the SuperBoss at the time, in my opinion purely based on the specs above it's closest rival could've been the ....













2.0L Mazda EGI

Mazda has always been underated cars :worship:

wasnt there a Merc called a super spint or something like that - a 190E merc - not the 2.3 - but a 2 litre version or something - anyone know anything here?

what about Lotus 4 V4? it has dellortos.
i think Fiat had something or Alfa had something as well.
Ferrari? maserati?

it seems we are gonna need to search far and wide, maybe introfuce the thread to other forums.
