One of my good friends has a 10-11 second grand national.  The 
acceleration limiting factor is tire size and type on his car.  Applying 
throttle at any speed results in vicious wheel spin and blindingly thick 
clouds of smoke.  Scariest thing I've ever ridden in.  Maybe you 
encountered a rare, bonestock GN.  Stock GN is 245 hp and 355lb-ft tq 
with around 3800 lb weight.
