I know virtually nothing about real-life racing cars or sport cars. I always raise an eyebrow when the guys on Top Gear throw digs at American cars, taking every chance they can to rip on them (although they did have one episode where they had a change of heart.) I also notice that the general attitude is that Americans don't know what they're doing with car-building (or driving.) The only experience I get with this type of car is through games. Since getting into the Race series, I've come to really like BMW. Occasionally, I'll try one of the American muscle cars and I'm very disappointed in them, especially the Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro. Those two cars are like driving tanks with wheels made of ice. I don't get it. They're horrible in-game. I can only come to these possible conclusions regarding the real thing: The cars really are that bad and deserve the ridicule They're not modeled properly in the game I just don't know how to drive them right Possibly some combination of those conclusions? I've always liked the big "in-your-face" look and sound of the classic American muscle cars (and these new ones that attempt to re-create that.) But based on my in-game experience, if I had to choose a car to spend that much money on, I'd go straight for the BMW and wouldn't even remotely consider the Camaro or Challenger.
