Speaking of Mustangs...Driving to work on the interstate the other day, in my rearview mirror I see this red Mustang on a lift kit; gold grill; black hood with gold trim...I start chuckling, and slow down to let him pass me so I can check this bling bling out...As they pass, it had 24" or 26" gold spinners along with other gold trimming...and then I see the back and the little snake. I can't believe it; a Cobra. They did that to a Cobra??? I almost started crying. I would've gladly traded my Focus for them to do what they pleased with for that Cobra. There are just cars that you can't do that to, and a Cobra is not one of them.

A ricer is a slow honda 4cyl made to look like a mustang or w/e and sound fast

You are comparing apples to oranges...I can almost guarantee you that the stickers on that Lambo are true sponsors. In response to your picture:

This is a little different than:

It depends on what kind of stickers you put on the Mustang or the Focus. If it's overkill with big graphics and lightning bolts, its rice no matter if it's on a Mustang or a Focus. I've seen a ton of riced out Mustangs, which I think is worse than a riced out Focus, because at least with a Focus or smaller car it's somewhat expected.

The hatchback version of the Si has less hp than an SVT at 160hp, and only a 5sp tranny. It wasn't until 06 that Honda got the Si right. My brother had an 05 Si which he let me drive several times...it may have had 160hp, but it felt like it only had 10ft/lbs of torque. It was rather sluggish, and was very sloppy feeling. Lets just put it this way. My Mothers 05 Kia Spectra was more fun to drive than my brothers Si. I haven't been able to drive the newer Si, but I imagine it is alot better...

From the Urban Dictionary
Quote:
1. RICE

An automobile that has been equipped with gawdy, unnesecary accessories, such as 3' high spoilers, loud and/or repulsive paint job and body work. Owners of such automobiles feel that these accessories make their car the best in the world, when in fact it is not.
Quote:
2. rice

Race Inspired Cosmetic Enhancements. (R.I.C.E.)Parts put on cars to make them look fast, when they have no internal tuning, and are actually slow as hell. Parts usually consist of excessivley angular bodykits, large rear spoilers, neon, sponsor stickers, chrome rims, fake "coffee can" exhaust tips, and loud, annoying paint jobs and/or vynils. Sometimes parts are do-it-yourself installed and are basically duct taped to the car. Most commonly known for being done to Honda Civics, but can also be done to slow domestic vehicles, such as a Chevy Cavalier, etc.
see anything can be rice

+1. And even then some of the older Si models(depending on the year) required PREMIUM fuel.Horsepower doesn't mean squat if the vehicle doesn't have the TORQUE or power to weight ratio to back it up.
