Fast and Furious- Sports Cars to Get Your Heart Racing

If you’re a lover of high-speed thrills, hairpin turns, and incredible torque then you are undoubtedly a lover of classic muscle and sports cars. There’s nothing quite like the sensuous curves of a Jaguar, or the pure, unadulterated power of a Mustang to get a car lover’s blood pumping. For those who like it fast, furious, and ferocious, we bring you this list of lust-worthy sports cars. Even if you aren’t fortunate enough to jump behind the wheel of one of these beautiful driving machines, just reading about them is bound to get you all hot and bothered.

Dodge Viper

DTLA8-1

In the ad campaign for it’s 2015 model, Dodge promises that just one look at the new and improved Viper SRT will have your eyes dilated and your pulse racing. For once, it seems there is actually some truth in advertising. This supercar embodies artisanal automobile manufacturing at its finest. The Viper’s long nose, curvaceous body, and intimidating profile make it a stunner to behold. But it’s the 645 horsepower, 8.4-liter V10 engine, capable of rocketing to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds that is guaranteed to get your blood pumping. This is a honest to goodness, visceral, white knuckle driving experience. This year’s limited edition Ceramic Blue model offers an even more exclusive allure, with only 40 cars slated for production in 2015. A true exotic, but made right here on American soil, the Dodge Viper is an unconventional classic.

Nissan GT-R

DTLA8-2

Nissan has developed a reputation for building high quality performance machines that push the boundaries of today’s auto market, and we personally feel that reputation is well earned. They’ve set the industry standard for electric vehicles with the Leaf, crossover SUVs with the Pathfinder and Expedition, and have now created a sports car to rival the world’s best, the Nissan GT-R. After taking one for a spin recently at Nissan West Covina, we were blown away by the performance and power of this car. Its dual-clutch automated manual transmission makes for a truly thrilling driving experience, and the V6 turbocharged engine is fast enough to make your head spin. The folks at Downtown Nissan agree with us- the Nissan GT-R provides passionate drivers with an unparalleled ride.

Lamborghini Aventador

DTLA8-3

Certainly the most aggressively flamboyant roadster on our list, the Lamborghini Aventador is one massive driving machine that really lives up to its wild reputation. Wide, robust, and muscle bound, it is significantly larger than many comparable sports cars, yet manages to remain remarkably agile for its size. Flashy though it may be, drivers consistently say that this all-wheel-drive, 700 horsepower beast is a true jaw dropper on the road. It pushes over 150 miles per hour with ease, gripping corners with grace and fluidity. The Aventador really encourages drivers to engage with it, pushing them to their very edge for a fulfilling and thrilling ride. On the racetrack and roadways alike, the Lamborghini Aventador is a mean, mad driving machine without equal.
