Ground-breaking legend that made Audi's name and revolutionized the world rally championship.
3.6-litre engine, 381 bhp, 60 mph in 4 seconds. And that very aggressive racing look!
Timeless style, excellent engine, this car was one of the finest cars in the world.
The Shelby Mustang is a high performance variant of the Ford Mustang which was built by Shelby American from 1965 through 1970. Following the introduction of the fifth generation Ford Mustang, the Shelby nameplate was revived in 2007 for new high performance versions of the Mustang.
Top up or down it has world class handling, braking, and almost world class power. Yet a long way away from world class price. Able to take enough stuff for a long weekend and dependable enough to get you home over and over again. Will still turn heads almost anywhere. Oh, and it really doesn't need a turbo, superchager, or any traction control PCM etc stuff.
Light, fun, reliable, and a monster at the track. Anyone who knocks them has never driven them.
guys, at the trop of the list, besides the mustang, are ferraris mclarens and porshes. THEY ARE NOT SPORTSCARS!
This was Toyota's falgship sportscar with bulletproof reliability and the perfomance numbers to put anything near its price range to shame. This car has a cult following because of its aftermarket support to easily put down supercar numbers with minimal investment. Increase the boost and airflow with bolt-ons and it performs reliably with the likes of the Porsche 911 TwinTurbo.
When Nissan introduced this car in 1990, it set the bar for affordable sports cars with 300hp. It was easily tunable to over 400hp with mere bolt-ons.
While racing the same car on the 401 in TO back in "76 we both started being chased by a couple of sleeper cop cars at 2AM. We ran for about 2 - 3 miles then decided to pull over and I'll never forget how visibly shaking thr cop was who pulled me over! He had a real hard time just writing me up a ticket I'm guessing because it's the 1st time he'd ever driven that fast. If I hadn't worried about him maybe having my plate number there's no way he would ever have caught me. I'd just past 160 on the speedo when I realized he was about a mile behind me; what a blast. Thare was also no other traffic at that time of night or it would've ended a lot sooner also.
202mph supercar that handles better than your 599GTB and 0-60 around 3.5 secs(around the same as the Enzo's), costing less than £170,000 and goes round the Top Gear track in 1:19.1, a good 3secs better than the McMerc SLR and 599GTB, 0.8 seconds better than the 599GTO and just 0.1 seconds than the £950,000 (illegal in UK, only left-hand drive) Enzo... and every car above is at least £150,000 more expensive than the 458. Don't go complaining about the wheelarch fires, the cars have been took back, fixed, and returned (the 10 victims have been given a fixed 458)... without messing with the performance. And it revs to 9,000rpm. Any questions? No? Good.
Best and light sport car, mid engine rear wheel drive, superb handling, great look!!
Japanese sports car better than the Impreza WRX STi...no,wait,probably even better than an Evo X!
The Fastest car Aston Martin has made. Also the most expensive. $1.5mil.+. Only 77 were made. A middle-east man bought 11 of them. One would ask, WHY?
this car will easily do 150mph. And its such goood quality, 'cause you can easily get a 2000 one for under $6000. even $1500 for a 1993. it'll kick mustang butt.
the eunos 30x was a small Japanese sports coupe. it has a unique 1.8l 24 valve v6. it may not have the most powerful or torquiest engine here, but it does have the smoothest. due to the V.R.I.S. when you reach 4500 rpm it has a sudden boost of performance with sound which scares away any competitors!!!!....if you want better performance than go for manual. if you want a car with good handling than this car is perfect. although it is a front wheel drive its supple suspension, light weight and small size gives it good handling. not just good handling but best in its class handling, handling so good for a front wheel drive that you can in fact drift with it. with its good performance in speed and handling it has a body to match, with a smooth design, low stance and a sculpted spoiler. this car has room for 4 people and has bucket seats. overall this car has excellent performance, a nice design and room for 4 people.all that for just $ 4000 to $12000. now thats what you call a good sports car.
Shouting just got louder... and shoutier. It's one of the nicest cars, possibly the 7th best car on earth in my opinion, with 0-60 in 3secs, 202mph top speed, V10 engine with 550bhp and 5.0l capacity...but it's the size of a V8 and weighs the same as a V6. It's carbon fibre, very light, one of the nicest things of all time, has a computer game-like revometer(a normal one won't keep track of the way it gains and loses revs) and if you modify it well enough, you'll get 12,000rpm. Not saying the standard 9,000rpm is awful. One downside... it's £340,000.
one hell of a car...it actually is classed as a supercar, although it doest generate enough horse power to be one.
One of the fastest street cars (60 mph in 3.2 seconds). Without all the computers they put now between You, Car and the road. Pure adrenaline with over 200 mph.
240 mph.2nd fastest car when released in '98(beaten by Mac F1 by 5mph), still in the top 10 today.Also incredibly nice,'nuff said.
For British manufacturer Lotus, high-performance is all about simplicity. A lightweight, stripped-down car with a modest engine is the Lotus ideal -- the pure sports car. The new Lotus Elise fits that ideal perfectly. It weighs less than a ton and only has a four-cylinder engine, but it's fast enough for most and has handling characteristics that more than one automotive magazine has called "telepathic."
750hp and very,very little handling.The true test of driving experience.Too much is just enough touque.
ferrari technology, super sexy design, limited production (90) great performance and handling and low key and classy looks!
English Made, skelleton body, weighs 500 KG with the best 4 cylinder engine out there, a 2.0 VTEC of the newest Honda Civic. Versions from 300 to 350 HP with Compressor. Its a pure race car for the street and pretty dangerous for newbies. Beats almost any other street car on almost any race tracks. Only disadvantage is the top speed, which must be limited for safety to about 230 to 250. 0-100, 0-60 is about 2.6-2.8 seconds
Er, where do I start? hmm... gold chassis on outside...500hp...25 made...power-to-weight ratio 940hp/tonne...490kg...0-60 in 2.3secs...gold wheels...beat the Veyron SS on the top gear track...3.0l...road-legal... engine from the worlds quickest motorbike, the Suzuki Hayabusa... 150,000 pounds... has incredibly light yet sinister spoiler... I think I've said enough.
How was it not on here? It could out drag an Audi R8 V8, and had a 183mph top speed. In 1963. Actually, some guy outdragged a 458 in it.
not on the list but one of the most recognizable iconic cars of the last 40 years. james bond's "submarine car". julia roberts taking the wheel from richard gere in "pretty woman" and the car of choice for super hot sharon stone with two of them in basic instinct. how could this car not be on the list? it competed with and ran with the ferrari's, porchse's and lambo's of the early 80's to mid 90's.
1760 cc, 550 horsepower, both turbo and supercharger, 4 wheel drive, 2.3 seconds to 62mph, all packed in the most menacing hatchback body ever made. And it's been around since 1985.
The most underated muscle car of all time will do 0-60 in under 5 seconds stock. My grandpa owned one when i was little. He did alot to it and still do this day was the fastest car i have ever been in.
3.5 Engine at 290HP N/A. A truly remarkable v6 coupe with serious perfromance abilities. The only car comes to mind as in competition Mustang GT v8 and S2000. I didnt see them make it in this list.
