Upgrading car yields stronger opponents

It seems that the races for each blacklist-level come with a predefined min/max, regarding how fast cars your opponents will drive.

Furthermore, it seems that the 'level' of your car parts (race/pro/ultimate), is the deciding factor within that predefined range.

So when meeting troublesome opponents in very fast cars, contrary to what you might think, its useful to try a less upgraded car.

I fiind Fiat Punto and Mazda RX8 especially useful in this regard, because they have great handling for sprint/circuit type races. (Less likely to over-steering to point of full stop.)

Finally it seems that you can upgrade some parts without making opponents stronger. Engine and NOS are possibly the ones you want to avoid upgrading.
