ooooh toughie here !

SRT 4 is no dbout a quicker track car with AWD and a 280 bhp blown engine ..
but in the end its just a stupid Neon on a high protein diet ..

I'd go for the IS300 man, sheer class ,Lexus is always a hit with the ladies .. v-vti has enough grunt to smoke the regular mustang ..

cheers

As far as I know, the SRT-4 comes with a 230 Bhp 2.4 L turbo engine, and is FWD only...

The Lexus may be a better car, but the Neon makes up for its relatively low performance with a dirt cheap price. Also there is no way that an IS300 will smoke a V8 engined Mustang. I am not sure about the V6 though. The 2006 IS will surely beat the V6 Mustang. But if you really want to compare, for the price of the IS you can get the lip smacking SRT-8, or even a standard 300C or Charger R/T. Now that will be some real old fashioned American muscle v/s Jap tech competition.
