Why dont you guys stop comparing super cars and non stock muscle cars? No one here drives those as a daily drive. Why don't you compare real cars that 90% of both US and EU citizens drive? Better yet, why don't you compare cars that compete in both markets, yet have differing places of maunfacture and specs? Like the Ford Focus or the Saab 9-3? Then you have valid arguements. Saying a Ferrari is better then some obscure mid-80's Vette is riduclous. I have owned both a Ford Focus in the US and in Germany and the differnce in interior build quality was astonishing. With identical specs and performance, the interior is where you spend your time driving. And where the US market lags behind. Take the new Dodge Charger, great car, good engine, drive ok-ish ( it is a charger after all ) but what blind monkey desgined the inside? It's all plastic and angles. Any performance the engine gives is instantly leaves your mind when you sit in traffic. All you have then is interior design and comfort. And that is why even mid-market BMW's and Audi's are a delight. They "feel" nice and sexy even standing still. And between the US and the EU, there really isn't anywhere where you can use 300+ bhp except for a track. Which is why handeling is so important, even in Civic. I think this thread needs to get real and remember how we all really use our cars. To work and back, shopping and kids and screwing around. No one here goes to Stop and shop or Tescos in a Diablo.
