    Charger and Challenger Hellcats. These cars honestly piss me off, mostly the charger. Everyone that likes these say "Your mustang can't beat this!" "You wan't be laughing when a 4 door beats you mustang!" And now everyone thinks the Charger is a muscle car (if they haven't already). Sense when were muscle cars 4 doors? I am really starting to hate dodge. Their hobby is ruining great muscle cars. Also Corvettes, Vipers, and Ford GTs, are not muscle cars! That also makes me mad.

    The older Ford GT was a muscle car/super car also the corvettes from 2+ years ago are muscle cars and older vipers/ New ones are more like sport cars and the New ford gt is more like a exotic

    that thing looks like it kicks ass, and the kid who probably built it is having fun.

    The Nissan GTR does all that, and it is becoming the end to the insecure internet person's foibles just as quickly as the Bugatti did.

    Also around those speeds it requires a lot more power to go even faster than it does at lower speeds. Also would a F1 be as reliable as a Veyron? No.

    Because of this. And know one shout up about how it's faster then every other new muscle car.

    Muscle car is a term used to refer to a variety of high-performance automobiles. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines muscle cars as any of a group of American-made 2-door sports coupes with powerful engines designed for high-performance driving. A large V8 engine is fitted in a 2-door, rear wheel drive, family-style mid-size or full-size car designed for four or more passengers. Sold at an affordable price, muscle cars are intended for street use and occasional drag racing. The Ford GT is definitely not an affordable car. If it was my dad would have one.

    Why the hell do I need to buy a $75K SUV for doing absolutely nothing in which a SUV is made, to offroad and onroad. Even the little brother, the Tahoe, doesn't get the hoes.

    Ofcourse it would be. Less cylinders, less turbos, and less mass to push, a V12 NA engine will always be more reliable than a Quad turbo W16 having 2 tonnes to push. the F1 is also much simpler and mechanical.

    An f1 engine never lasts a season. 20000rpm redlines put *huge* strain on the engine. They use bizarre piston designs which increase pressure on the cylinder wall (increasing wear).Piston rings are sometimes knackered within a race or 2. They also have very small displacements, its always been the case that generally smaller engines will have a reduced lifespan than a larger one at the same horsepower levels.
    Also they are 1.6 litre turbo charged v6's not n/a v12s (haven't been v12 in many years)

    Well whoops.
    Crazy is right though, it does take exponentially more power to go faster at those speeds

    That BMW in the first post.
    First of all the looks is subjective. I actually like it with an M-package andbig wheels.
    Secondly, like every other american car, the ATS is made out of cheap materials. Just experience the interior in both cars and then talk. An e46 has a better interior materials than that ATS.
    Thirdly, every generation of the 3 series is a completely new car from scratch. Suspension, chassis.. everything, while the ATS is probably just a truck underneath with a suspension from the 30s. That is what GM made, use the same parts for every single model, rarely make an inovation and that is why they sell them cheap. The development of the 3 series costs a lot more. If you don't trust me, just drive a Caddy and a BMW on some corners. No wonder why all automobile magazines are crazy on BMs.
    And the automatic gearbox in the ATS (6-speed GM 6L45 Hydra-Matic automatic) will be crap compared to the 8 speed ZF which all german makers use.
    And last, the hp. Do Cadillac have 2 liter diesel with 184hp? 3 liter diesel with 280hp? No? 3 liter petrol with 431hp? No.

    Most hideously overrated (and just hideous) car in existence IMO.

    Yes, the Ford GT isn't a muscle car, it's clearly a supercar, but the Viper and Corvette fall under "super muscle car". They handle better than your run of the mill Camero or Mustang, while still being a 2-door RWD American car with a big engine.
