Can you identify the difference between a Corvette and a Viper? Do you know what makes the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon special? Not everyone values American performance, but you might be one of those people who do.
While Europeans think they own the world of automotive performance, they fail to realize that Americans have been pushing the envelope for decades. After all, this is the land of muscle cars, not to mention some impressive sports cars and even a few roadsters. We love big, snarling V-8s that can pound the pavement like nothing else, as well as a road-hugging chassis. Whether on the road or track, American performance is alive and well.
The heritage of American performance cars runs deep. After all, Ford, GM, Chrysler, and others have been producing cars that are made to accelerate faster, hit blistering top speeds, and overall thrill you as the driver in every way possible. Plenty of them are good-looking, too.
