Fastest 4-door in the world is the Space Shuttle. Normal hatch, escape
hatch, two cargo bay doors = 4 doors. Speed over 18,000 MPH, Zero to
supersonic in less than one minute, pointed straight up!! Horrendous fuel
mileage, though, noise upsets the neighbors (mostly alligators), and if you
think _WE_ have high maintenance bills . . .
Seriously, if you ever get the chance to see a live shuttle launch - DO IT -
you will NEVER forget it as long as you live. Sorta puts the Mustang vs. BMW
vs 5000 Ks controversy into a different perspective.
