Only it doesn't - it just wants me to have fun. And you know what? 550bhp in a Fiesta ain't that scary; you just keep feeding it gears, keep the power on, man up. Of course it's fast, but you're way too occupied by the titanic gearbox whine, the borderline terrifying anti-lag crackle and pop, the knowledge you're leaving flames and smoke in your wake, the surprising body roll and hyperactive chassis to worry about a trifle such as acceleration. Even in a car with a 0-60mph time of exactly two seconds.
