"Revel in a bit of planet-killing muscle car action.....a must-see for anyone with a lust for big powered thugs" Max Power
More than five decades ago the mean streets of Detroit gave the world an
icon – the American Muscle Car. Today, the legend lives on, although the Muscle
Car has traded in it’s blue collar for a white one, and made the pursuit of
finesse as important as raw speed.
This gas-guzzling, rubber-burning programme is a celebration
of the new generation of Muscle Cars from the United States. We take a look at
the machines which keep the spirit alive, with aggressive looks and thundering
engines, while bringing the Muscle Car concept firmly into the 21st
century with the comfort, convenience, handling and efficiency we expect today.
The legacy is kept alive in the modern breed of Muscle Car,
as tyre-shredding power and menacing lines combine to evoke the memory of the
classic of the 1960s, and the legend grows as handling and ride are developed
to make these American exports genuine contenders on the European stage – on
the racetracks as well as the roads.
Sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds of the new era of American
Muscle Cars as we take look at the new kids on the block, including the
Cadillac XLR, Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Dodge Charger, Ford GT, Plymouth Prowler
and, of course, that most iconic of Muscle Cars, the Mustang, at speed, on the
roads and in glorious close-up.
