Every automaniac had one or the other time in his life got a poster of his favourite sports car sticking to his wall. So this time we have got for you some of the hottest, fastest and most desirable top sports cars, which very few of us can actually own.
5. 2012 Aston Martin Vantage
At number 5 we have the 2012 model for the Aston Martin V8 Vantage which is powered by a 32 valve, 4.7 L rear engine that can accelerate from 0-100 km/hr in about 5 seconds. The top speed this car can reach is 290 km/hr. The most attractive feature of this car is its exquisite styling along with the deep growl from the British engine that can produce a power of 313kW at 7300 rpm and a torque of 470 Nm at 5000 rpm. The Coupe and Roadster versions of the Aston Martin Vantage will be costing around £ 85,000 or $133,135 in UK, making it the least expensive car in our list.
4. Porsche 911 Turbo S
The Porsche 911 Turbo S may not be able to beat the Aston martin’s Vantage on a race track because of a smaller 3.8L V6 engine, but produces enough power and torque to even climb the highest mountains. The rear mounted engine in the Porsche 911 Turbo S produces 390 kW of power between 6250-6750 rpm and a torque of 700 Nm between 2100-4250 rpm. It can reach 0-100 km/hr in just 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 315 km/hr. Also the Porsche 911 Turbo S gets multi-clutch Porsche Dopplel Kupplung, in short PDK system that sends power to all the four wheels. The car costs about $137,500.
3. Lamborghini Aventador
This new model from Lamborghini is powered by 6.5L V12 engine which makes the vehicle jump from 0-100 km/hr in just 2.9 second and reach a top speed of 350 km/hr. The Aventador produces an astonishing 515kW of power at 8250 rpm and produces a torque of 690 Nm at 5500 rpm. Although this car has astonishing figures, the car fails to impress when it comes to fuel consumption as the figure for that is 17.2L/100 km. Want to know the price of this monster… Well just as the performance numbers are high, same is the price. It’s a mammoth $387,000.
2. Ferrari 458 Italia
The Ferrari 458 Italia is one of the best looking Ferrari’s and even though it rolled out of the factory in 2010, it’s one of the most preferred Ferrari sports car. The 458 Italia produces 419 kW of power at 9000 rpm and a max torque of 540Nm at 6000 rpm. The car gets a special dual clutch, seven speed F1 gearbox which sends power to the rear wheels making this Ferrari gallop from 0-100 km/hr in less than 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 325 km/hr. The car costs about $229,825.
1. McLaren MP4-12C
And finally at number 1on our list for top sports cars, we have the McLaren MP4-12C. This car is powered by a mid mounted 3.8 L V8 twin turbo engine delivering 441kW of power at 7000 rpm and a torque of 600 Nm between 3000 and 7000 rpm. The car accelerates from 0-100 km/hr in 3.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 330 km/hr. With carbon fibre composite body, 7 speed Seamless Shift gearbox and an enormous head turning power the McLaren MP4-12 is not cheap, as it costs $231,000.
