If I'm right, the discussion that should follow would be of the why do people "race" or try to show off their car to other drivers variety. It is something we likely have all experienced to some extent with our reactions ranging from laughing at them or ignoring them to blowing their doors off. I think driver's just like to know where they stack up against the competition, or sometimes they just want to goad a driver into action to see a hot car perform.

It could be pretty basic.
Racee: Ego says "OMG, That fellow who just passed me may now have the delusion that he is faster than I am! Surely he isn't, in that [Brand X] car that everyone makes fun of on forums...and I would hope that he knows that I am faster. But what if he doesn't? I have had the sense not to street race on this occasion, but I will now go talk about it with my peers, so that I can feel better about this!"
Racer: Ego says "OMG, That fellow is driving what he thinks is a rally car on the street! I know that I have beaten those before, because I passed them. My car is now louder, and perhaps incrementally faster than it was, so perhaps it is faster than his rally car on the street! I really have no idea! I will now give it gas and see what happens!"
Second-guessing what's going on in another driver's brain is an exercise in futility. Let him think what he will, and move on with life.
