Hey there, I own both and I feel that the euro is much faster

I know they are differences, I'm not a expert when it comes to mechanical side of the cars

Which is a shame

Can anyone explain the difference and also anyone tried both usa vs euro cars?

Thanks guys

the main difference is 8.8 CR versus 8. Also USA cars had polution gear.pumps..cat convertors.its amazing they had any horsepower at all.
Ive an Aus version and it is halfway spec wise between the 2.!!
Generally accepted as 300 horses versus 286.
