Unhappy no, my car is not THAT fast...

Anyone encounter this little problem? Ever since I started parking my car close to the back door at my office building, the people who go out for smoke breaks always ask me if my car is really fast. Then they quote some microscopic 0-60 and 1/4 times for me. My reply is always that it isn't that fast by a long shot, but it's fairly fast.

I'm not satisfied with that answer, they're not satisfied with that answer. Some of them even comment that the car looks much faster than it is. This is really starting to burn me up. Any suggestions? I do have plans to someday be able to mod my car for some real performance gains, it'll just take some time. So hopefully, one day I can say, "Yes, my car is as fast as it looks."

In the meantime, anyone have some good ideas for what I should tell these people so they don't walk away totally unimpressed with the car? Grazie in advance.
