The Fastest Cars That Only Look Slow

List Rules
Vote up the cars that pack the most surprising speed

This list is pretty straightforward: it's a look at our top 25 deceptively fast cars. The key word here is "deceptive," meaning that these cars are faster than they look; they're low-key cars that offer a surprise for the unwary. These street sleepers are the vehicles that give sports car owners the night sweats, the wild cards that keep them awake at night, never knowing if one day they'll be embarrassed at a stoplight by something that has no business even keeping up. 

Call them "sleepers." Call them "Q-ships" or "stealth fighters." No matter what name you choose to put on paper, don't ever write these secret agents off as anything other than speed assassins in disguise.

Criteria here is also straightforward. No sports cars, no performance variants with snazzy go-fast body kits, nothing that the casual observer would ever suspect packs serious artillery under the hood. We're limiting this list to cars produced since the 1980s, strictly on the basis that it would be a hundred cars long if we went back to the 1960s. But there have been plenty of serious sleepers unleashed since the Reagan era.

So vote up the most surprisingly fast cars and pick your weapons - assassination time awaits with these deceptively fast cars.
