I mean if you're going to keep the fundamental bits about a car then make it the light weight and nimble aspects. All the Mustang has managed to do is get refurbished and get fatter!BlaRo said:Another excuse for them to say that American cars are crap, and another excuse for no0bs to rush this forum screaming the same thing.rohdek said:Silverstar said:Was a great episode.
Loved seeing the Lotus taking Ford to school...god I hate ford :lol:
Boating segment was gold, poor Hammond and his sinking camper van. But seeing Clarkson's boat keel over right at the docks was the best!
Taking the Ford to school in a completely unfair race. Completely different cars with completely different missions and pricetags. A weird comparison.
See post above me.
I'd take the Exige-S over a Mustang GT. They're priced similarly in the UK and in America when fully loaded.
Just to clarify (not to be pedantic), the two cars are nowhere near in price. If you want a Lotus Exige S in the states it'll cost you about $76,500 USD and if you want the premium package Ford Mustang GT it'll set you back about $27,500 USD. Even a bare bones Elise Starts at around $43,000 USD some fifteen thousand dollars more than a loaded Mustang GT.
My boss' 2006 California Concepts Mustang was marked at $42,000. FOR A V6! WTF?
Not sure which model the California Concepts is (not a mustang man myself) but I reckon it's the one you've pictured in your signature. All I can say is that my sources for the Mustang's pricing information are from the US Ford website and reflect MSRP. If your boss paid $42,000 USD for a V6 Mustang from the factory, he must be slightly derranged.
California Concepts is a bit of a tuning house (not a very good one) that takes Ford cars and does stuff to em. My boss' car, all it has is big wheels louder exhaust and minor body work. The sticker price was 42k he told me but he got it for 37k which is still wayyyyyyyyyyy too much
I of course asked him why he was so stupid lol. He responded by saying he just loves mustangs. I said "Alright well as long as your happy i guess thats all that matters but.....whoa
hey see the BMW 850 that just drove by? I could buy a used one for a quarter of the price of your car and drive circles around you." He had a really bummed look on his face lol no joke.
