The Dodge SRT-4 dominates its class in performance.


The Dodge SRT-4 is one of the cheapest in its class also, at $20,995. Its import competition that produces poorer performance than it cost slightly more.

2001 Acura RSX Type S
$23,500

2002 Toyota Celica GT-S
$22,040
And the SRT has 4 doors so its much more practical in my opinion.

That's not a mustang. It's a Ford Falcon. It's made by the Australian Ford Division. Fast, tunable right hand drive car.

if i'm not mistaken, the falcon is a mid-sized sedan. But what the hell do i know about Australian cars? I rethought the sports cars under $75k question:

1. 2005 Mustang GT
2. 2004 Nissan 350Z
3. 2005 Volvo S40 T5 (Six Speed)

No. Similar, but by no means the same car. The Falcon is a turbocharged intercooled inline 6 with four doors. It was designed in Australia, by Australian designers. The stage three turbo upgrade brings it up to about 500 horsepower.

Nice Pick

Bro,

You got to go with a skyline but youll need a little bit more to fix your car up but otherwise a vette will be a good choice
