It is my understanding, and please correct me if I'm wrong, that US 
sportscars are overly expensive in Europe, making them rather 
unattractive for European drivers.  One example is the Ford Mustang GT.  
Here in the US, if you're looking for muscle (and can turn a blind eye 
to handling) it's hard to beat for the price of $25k.  However, raise 
the price 5-10k, and there are many better cars to choose from.
