A lot of those are also a lot cheaper than the cars that they are aimed to compete with. Now if they could just remove the cheap plastic feel of the interior of some.

its a shame they got that footage of the chevy corvette off top gear! i actually laughed at the point your making when it loced its front right wheel when turning the corner!!! (i dont mean anything by it though!!!)
i dont think they cant turn corners, theyre just so used to straights and square turns!

Corvettes are great cars for all types of performance, unlike vipers or ford gts.

It's been so long since I watched a video from Streetfire...

There's no doubt American cars can turn well, the Corvettes, Vipers and Saleens are probably the best racing/road cars to come out of America. Now what would really set the record straight is for them to build a sports car with active suspension
