Really love this car. I've heard horrible things about quality tho. Also, stig said this is one of the worst cars he has driven

Not really. This car weighs only 1.1 tonnes! The Viper weighs 1.5 tonnes.
Aww dont penalize the viper for having a bigger rack
besides I'm sure Jezza would describe the dynamics of both cars as "trying to kill you" same ideas, diff countries. Its a shame there are no formal importing processes, uncle sam is a pain. I wish someone would just make it into a kit car using an existing frame/powertrain available here in the states... like a 2nd gen Viper. Would be a great way to resurect some wrecked snakes, jus sayin.

Exactly... It takes a while for me to warm up to RHD (took me about 2 months to really get used to it, and then another two months when I came home - got in my car, one time, and found myself sitting behind the glove box, lol!).

*edit: I don't think they do, which is why I've never looked into one. For British cars, though - some of their beasts to make it here for the USDM (Aston, Lotus, etc...). But I haven't heard of a LHD Noble or TVR.

Same problem with the likes of 'vettes. More would sell here if it weren't for the LHD issue. A bugger for overtaking.
