Since it was a game that initiated this, i'l go with it.

On Gran Turismo 4 i drive more tuned imports than exotics or muscle cars. So i guess my choice would have to be "Option 1".

After a few laps of the Nurburgring in a Spoon S2000, NSX R, Mines Skyline etc you wouldn't be interested in anything else.

The RUF Porsches are close but don't do enuf justice to the amount of power they produce.

Exotics for me. Its not that I don't love tuners or muscles but ........

I want people to tune/muscle their cars to try to beat me rather than me tuning/muscling my car to beat them!!! SIMPLE!!

Now wheres my Ferrari?

Huh??? Muscle cars on Limited Budget.. A well maintained Muscle car with the works can cost you anywhere close to the price of a new Ferrari or maybe more...

Whaaaa? Not fair I want all three What to do Im greedy when it comes to cars.
On a serious note it would have to be Tuner for me. If I had chosen the Musclecar then Id send it for Tuner options so that becomes a Tuner does'nt it? A Nissan Skyline GTR anyday for me.

@Godfather and pawan: Modern muscle cars eg. Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 retail for approximately GBP 40000. An F430 is approximately GBP 100000.
If we talk about classic muscle cars, we should compare them to Ferraris and Lambos from the yesteryears (250LM, 250GTO, etc.). These cars sport price tags that touch the moon.

Aditya your talking about a stock muscle car...well Godfather wouldnt be so happy with a stock muscle car;that the last i heard.A fully blown one would have parts equivalent to the price of your exotic.

Same holds true for the jap imports

Nopes! A regular Mustang (with about 300bhp) costs about US$30000 or so. A supercharged Shelby GT500 (about 500bhp) is worth US$50000 or so.
