By now, I suppose you have made your mind up, but to answer your questions; no, the cup is not a lot faster than the standard 172 on paper but, having driven both, I know it's faster in reality! My cup handles a damn site better than my mates 172 and honestly feels safer than his car when driven hard. With all your years driving, I'm sure you'll know what I mean when I say 'you always know what the car is going to do' no nasty supprises. If you want to criuse along the motorway on a hot sunny day, air con on, music playing, relaxed driving, get a standard one or even a nice big laguna! If you want to go for a drive and actually remember you have just been for a drive, get the cup. It will take you right back to when you first started driving!
