Millenia

The Mazda Millenia comes in two trim levels...either the base model or the S model. The base model only has a 2.5 liter V-6 with 170 hp. Essentially the same engine as the 626...and for that matter the same as ours. The S, however, has a miller-cycle 2.3 liter V-6 with 210 hp. My understanding is that this engine pushes pretty hard...similar performance to many small V-8 engines found in larger sedans. If the millenia you saw was the 'S' variant, then i wouldn't take any chances. The base model, though, I'd say you could win--it'd probably be real close and even come down to driver skill in the end. The extra weight and the higher drag coefficient of the Millenia should give you the advantage. Good luck.

Actually, the S model doesn't pull anything like a V8, every magazine I've read that reviewed them talked about how slow the Millenia was, especially compared to other cars in it's class. I think it runs 0-60 in the 8's. They're no slouch, but, they're not fast by any means. I'd say go for it, if you do lose, it won't be the embarrasment you seem to think it will be.
