The Lotus is more expensive than the Ford Mustang in the UK for sure.
Didn't see the point of racing a stripped out track car on semi-slicks against a fully loaded GT that seats 4 people (can actually get in and out of a Mustang without becoming a contortionist), and even then the gap wasn't that big! For the price difference you could have added a supercharger and other mods to the Mustang and it would have won for sure.
Love JC's double standards; he says the Corvette is rubbish on the road because the ride is too firm but the Lotus is fine? Having been a passenger in an Exige (the car is too small for me to fit behind the wheel) I submit that there isn't another road car in existence that has a firmer ride than the Exige, it's a total back breaker.
i would of thought it would be about the same ?30 k ish? nevermind
ive driven an exige on a track and even there its like a jack hammer to the spine.
i think the point of it was basically the british way to build a sports car and the american way to build a sports car. and obviously the point was to prove british > America at sports cars.
(vette doesnt count as a sports car.....its a super sports, jus incase anyone wants to say the vette is a good american sports car.....which it is, but it doesnt apply here)
The Mustang is NOT a sports car. Its a sports coupe or a muscle car. The only American-brand sports cars out there right now are the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky twins and the Corvette. Yes its a sports car, as much as a Boxster or SLK or Z4 is. And I'm surprised the Stang kept up that well with the Lotus. That's a tribute to the Stig's driving skill and it being a pretty decent handling car for an overweight four seater.
Anybody have massive audio problems with that episode? I think I missed ten minutes of the show due to horrible static.
