There are a few much anticipated new cars for 2013, and the question is how many will strive to own one of these performance cars? The 2013 SRT Viper came so close to retirement, but thanks to CEO Ralph Gilles, this grand sports car, is back and better than ever. The design is similar to the original 1992 model and is all blended together to make a sleek sexy body that steals attention wherever it goes.
Of course, it has a V-10 under the hood with an 8.4 liter engine. The manifold and catalytic convertors are of a lightweight material saving twenty-five pounds in weight. The car does an extravagant 206 miles an hour with its whopping 640 hp, 600-pound torque engine. Zero to 60 takes less than three seconds, and the consistent running speed of 206 mph is impressive, to say the least.
The most expensive performance car in the world is the Bugatti Veyron Super Sports at $2,400,000, and has the capability of reaching 60 miles an hour in 2.5 seconds and can reach speeds of 267 mph.
2013 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT is undoubtedly, the best car in the world. Mercedes Benz will remain the favored car of all time. What can you say about an engine that can move this beast at the speed of 167 mph. It may not be the fastest car out there, unless, of course, you take the beastly engine and put in a small body. Then the 583-mph engine would be as fast as other sports cars. Just the name exudes class in any performance car.
