Verdict (i think):

Dodge Challenger SRT8
Broad-shouldered good looks, thundering Hemi power, and savvy chassis tuning land Dodge's new old-school muscle machine out front.
Ford Shelby GT500
Still an eye-catcher, and sensationally fast, but archaic chassis and whiney motor weaken its bid for numero uno.
i mean dont get me wrong ... i love cars and everything but three pages are alot to read ... anyway i'd like to apologize if i'm posting this under the wrong category or if am repeating it .. i'm new and i still didnt get the hang of it .. check the table, not in a single aspect did the challenger have better figures than the Stang and it all comes for a price difference of 4k ? nice ... but that didn't quite interest me though ... what really did was the fuel consumption .. the GT is doing significantly better ! way to go Ford.
but if i was to recommend it to someone .. i'd still go for the challenger, a sports car has to handle like one.
