    I do not know if there is a way to say that it is built better but I would definitely agree that the GT350R is better looking. It is also a unique engine with the flat plane crankshaft vs the supercharged 6.2L V8.

    Fit and finish of every modern day chevrolet has been complete garbage, and has been for some time.

    Modern day? You mean FOREVER, at least since the 90s.

    When someone names a car Exorcist, they are clearly targeting the Demon.

    That was my thinking

    1000+HP is a number everyoen seems to be throwing around these days.

    Well, there it is then...

    Ok common now. I get that the Mustang might have some endearing qualities that people like, like styling or lighter weight than the Chevy or Mopar alternatives. But you can't use the justification of liking the Ford by trashing the Chevy interior fit and finish. The only worse interior out there than Chevy is every single Ford on the market. And it's a wide gap too.

    It's infuriating to see how far the other American manufacturers have come, and Ford just flat out refuses to get with the times and increase their quality. But I gotta hand it to them, why spend a pile of money to make a competitive product when people buy your junk anyway? They obviously have world class management and marketing to be able to sell an inferior product in record numbers.

    The Hellcat/Demon IS their flagship car now technically. But obviously you're referring to the Viper. Other than peak HP, what spec does the Hellcat hold over the Viper? Even with the Viper being a track car, it still holds it own on the drag strip against the Hellcat.

    Ugly, and these names are getting ridiculous.
