One of the things we miss from sports cars are pop-up headlights. Rockstar Rides also has a place in his heart for these neat sources of light and style, and set out to find as many of these cars as he could. The result is a wonderful montage of rides with serious personality.
The fastest ever variant of the featherweight sports coupe packs a 375 hp supercharged V6, launching the 2425 lb. car from 0-to-60 in just 3.5s. Unlike other supercars, it’s still available with a manual. Coming to the UK, Europe and Japan, but sadly no US model is planned.
The most powerful Super GT Aston available, the Vanquish S’ 6.0-liter V12 has been pushed to produce 591 hp thanks to a new intake system. Its suspension has been retuned for sportier handling, and new aerodynamics not only look the part, but help stick the car to the ground.
Audi amps up its already bonkers RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback with “Performance” models. Both AWD cars now have a whopping 605 hp, and the ability to overboost torque from 516 to 553 lb-ft. on demand. 0-to-60? 3.7s. Now can we get the wagon here in the States?
Mazda’s latest concept sports coupe appears to be the next in the RX-7, RX-8 lineage, with a fuel-efficient and powerful rotary engine and a rear-wheel drivetrain, wrapped up in a wide, low-slung form that embodies the company’s “soul of motion” design language.
The fastest street-legal Viper yet is powered by a hand-built 645hp 8-liter V10, rocking a massive rear wing, race suspension, and carbon ceramic brakes. This beast is sure to eat pavement like nobody’s business.
