LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that was great,although he did bash it abit as far as interior and overall handling,I respect any European Auto Enthusiasts opinion becuase I've driven a few Euro cars(actually in Europe,not the tuned down American versions)and most are brilliant.I'd love to hear the other British guy who actually puts two cars against each other on a road course(forget the name of his show).

Did you notice that the host of Fifth Gear says that ' Yanks are snapping them up at $20K." Where can you buy a new SRT for $20k??

Also, besides criticizing the interior, he also complained about the handling. Isn't handling one of the strengths of the SRT?

He probably meant $20k over MSRP.

As for handling, you have to remember these guys drive the best in the world when driving the european cars. While the SRT has great handling it is heavy and does lean during heavy turns. Compared to American cars, yes it is one of the best.

another thing is that 20k over there is like what 40 over here right so he prolly did not think bout the change factor at that moment. and if you ever watch those shows no american car handles good... well i have never heard any brit say they do

this was really good video too. I wonder how they can be critical of the Challenger for interior appointment or handling. Other than Rolls or jags, aren't most European cars tiny, clackety, rattly and stiff?
