To be more precise, the clip shows us the Pontiac pulling a 9.87s run at 142 mph (that's 229 km/h for all you reading this across the pond).
There's more to this Fiero than meets the eye speed trapBut a nine-second car wouldn't be so important without all the implications such a fast Fiero has.
This car is a middle finger shown to all the Ferrari replicas built on the Fiero's versatile platform. In fact, we're talking about all sort of replicas, not just those impersonating Prancing Horses.
Over the years, many car guys has come to despise the moment when a Fiero interior shows up in the same story as a supercar. It seems that no matter how many efforts the automotive community makes, the replica subculture simply won't disappear. Generation after generation of drivers, there will always be somebody who imagines tricking other people into believing they drive a Raging Bull or a Maranello machine is as easy as pie.
Exotic carmakers try to turn replicas into an extinct species, the police sometimes helps and many car aficionados also support such efforts. Well, this Fiero, which relies on the power of turbocharging, basically trolls all those drivers who decided to use such a Pontiac chassis to pretend they own a supercar.
