MSN AUTOS VIDEO
Like all MSN auto stories they got some right and some wrong. In order to be a sporty fun 4 door car handling is not enough, to me it also has to be fast. Several of his picks are not fast .For example: the Buick is not fast 1/4 15.2 @ 98, the Acura only does 1/4 in 14.7 @ 98, neither are very quick 0-60. The SRT 8 Charger 1/4 is 12.8 @ 115 and the SHO twin turbo 1/4 is 13.7 @ 103 and both are fast from 0-60. Before anyone says they don't handle they both did surprisingly well in MotorTrend road tests. So why were they left off the list? The Chevy SS is a NASCAR Chevy gimmick. They may never reach the streets or if they do there will so few that they don't count so why include it? Research the writers for MSN auto and you get an insight as to why they choose certain cars over others based on their backgrounds.
