For a bit of fun today, we’re going to look at some of the coolest sports cars on the market. While most of us are never going to afford to buy any of these models, it’s still nice to have a look and dream of what it would be like if we won the lottery. We’ve made our selections based on performance, reliability and style. With cars that can travel at such high speeds, we didn’t think it was worth looking into safety records. At the end of the day, people who buy these vehicles are always going to be tempted to drive irrationally and break the speed limit. For that reason, statistics with regards to safety aren’t going to create an accurate impression on these models.
Considering all that, you should spend the next three or four minutes checking out all the sports cars listed below. We’ll try to include the price of buying them brand new too. Just so you understand how far outside of your budget they are. You should try to avoid getting too attached to any one them as the only way average people like you and me will ever get one is if we shed our morals and rob a bank.
While the Mercedes-Benz SLS isn’t marketed as a sports car, you should be able to tell from the image we’ve attached to this article that it certainly fits the bill. With a seven-speed gearbox and a staggering 6.2 litre V8 engine, it is no surprise this model retails for over £165,000. That’s right folks; it’s almost as expensive as the average UK house price. If you want one of these, you need to make a decision. Do you get a roof over your head, or live on the back seat?
With a 2.0 litre engine, the Subaru BRZ won’t guzzle as much petrol as the Mercedes. However, it’s still just as quick off the mark. You can expect to see a 6-speed gearbox with overdrive option, which means you’ll have no trouble overtaking even the fastest of cars on UK motorways. Compared to the other vehicles listed on this page, the Subaru is surprisingly affordable. Top of the range models sell for around $40,000. Still far too high for people with wages like ours, but maybe if you get a good inheritance one day?
Designed to look very similar to American Mustang models, the Ford Shelby is a fantastically appealing sports car. While it is going to set you back a whopping £54,000 for the cheapest model, you simply can’t beat it for speed or comfort. With a 5.8 litre V8 engine as standard, anyone who buys one of these is going to spend a lot of time at the pumps. However, the Shelby is guaranteed to impress anyone who sees you driving it. So, you should seriously consider adding it to your post-lottery winning list of purchases. Not that the odds of hitting the jackpot are very favourable. Still, it’s important to have a dream, right?
Lexus RC F
The new Lexus RC F is raw power personified. As standard, all models come with a 5.0 litre engine although there are multiple variations. When buying brand new from a dealer, this model will cost over £60,000. However, there are some brilliant reviews online at websites like Inchcape Lexus, and they all suggest the RC F is a sports car to watch.
Thank you for taking the time to read this short piece today. We hope you don’t feel too bad after hearing about the type of vehicle you could purchase if you had millions in the bank.
Catch you next time!
