We all dream of owning supercars like Lamborghinis and Bugattis, but surprisingly there are many ordinary cars that pack quite a punch when it comes to performance. Here are a few such handpicked models which might look quite ordinary but can go from 0 to 100 in a surprisingly short time.
Volkswagen Golf GTI
The Volkswagen Golf GTI may not look like a powerful performer. It does however offer motorists an effective combination of style and performance with its 220 horsepower engine and a top speed of 125 mph. The Volkswagen Golf R variant can touch a top speed of 150 mph and produces 292 horsepower.
The Subaru WRX comes with a 268 hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can take you a top speed that is close to 145 mph. The WRX is certainly fun to drive, especially the version with the six-speed manual transmission.
If you are willing to spend a bit more, the Subaru WRX STI has an additional 50 horsepower and can reach 155 mph. Both ordinary motorists and rally racers love this model which like all Subaru models has an all-wheel drive. Those four wheels are driven by a 260 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Mazda MX-5 Miata
The Mazda Miata is one of the most affordable high-performance models around and has a glorious history. Its horsepower might be only 155, but with a top a top speed of 130 mph, it packs plenty of power. It is the best-selling two-set convertible sports car for a reason.
The Ford Mustang is a model that has been going strong for over 50 years and it is one of the most well known “muscle” cars. There have been plenty of classic Mustangs over the years. With a top speed of 155 mph, the Mustang is a powerful little car that inspires plenty of emotion in all car lovers. Ford is even working on an all-electric crossover that is inspired by the Mustang.
The Chevrolet Camaro comes with a top speed of 165 mph even for the base four-cylinder model. The Camaro has a powerful 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine but paying less does not mean any compromise when it comes to performance. It is not just powerful, but is also agile and stable, handling well on the road.
KIA Stinger GT

Honda Accord 2.0T
The Honda Accord is a conventional midsize family sedan which is generally chosen for its practical and fuel-efficient nature. That does not mean it cannot speed up on the road when needed.
