How do you figure that one?

Both cars made for roughly the same price and have the same 1970s muscle car revival styling.

The Mustang is a sub 30,000 dollar car in the states. It's about Dh90,000 to buy the V8 in America I believe.

Mr Al Tayer must be laughing all the way to the bank...don't they charge more than Dh130,000 for the same car here?

Go and test drive them and then you can tell me the difference.

Buy a 10 year old landy, you'll never lose $$$ on it.

And the women love them.

Well, that's the women with facial hair and smelly armpits anyway!

I have, both corner like a train stuck on a straight track (due to the pre-historic suspension), although the charger handles marginally better.

Both pretty average cars, with massive Hemo V8s shoehorned in and a splash of classical styling (the best bit IMHO)

The best of the bunch will be the retro Challenger which is coming out in the states later this year.

But the Stang is still the most overpriced car, pound for pound in the UAE.

Thank goodness I don't have to worry about too many corners in Dubai!! If I wrap it round a palm tree no one would notice anyway!

I would say the styling is a bit more than a splash where the Mustang is concerned. The Charger is just plain boring.

Both Mustang and charge look equally good, both completely modelled on their 70s counterparts.

Likewise the new Camaro and the Challenger...all of them look nice. The Challenger by far the most evocative.

But I'm pretty sure all of them will be typical American cars, all grunt and no guile.

Problem is, it looks utter crap in any other colour than black.

The Al Capone mob car stylings leave it suited to a hint of evil.
