Nothing quite compares to the excitement of driving a sports car. Whether you’re on track or tearing up the streets, there’s an adrenaline rush that you can’t get from any other type of vehicle. Import cars are great because they offer the best quality and value. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorites so you can take your pick of which model suits your lifestyle.
1. Bugatti Veyron
The Bugatti Veyron isn’t exactly a secret. It’s one of the fastest, most expensive cars on the planet and has been since it was first released over a decade ago (in 2005, to be exact). The car’s W16 engine packs an impressive 8.0L, 1,001 horsepower punch that’ll send this lousy boy from 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds and up to its top speed of 268mph!
2. Ferrari F12berlinetta
The Ferrari F12berlinetta is a 2-door, 2-seat sports car by Ferrari. A 6.3L powers it (6262 ccs) naturally aspirated V12 engine, producing 730 bhp and 690 Nm of torque at 7500 rpm coupled to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox that sends power to the rear wheels. The car also has a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis, independent adaptive suspension, and 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires.
The name F12 means it’s the 12th Ferrari V12 model produced since 1947, while Berlinetta means ‘little boat’ in Italian — an apt description for this stunningly beautiful shape!
3. McLaren P1
If you’re serious about speed, the McLaren P1 is for you. This exotic car can push 217 mph thanks to a twin-turbo V8 petrol engine that produces 903 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. You’ll be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds with the help of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission system and rear-wheel drive.
4. Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is the first roadster from Lamborghini. The engine produces 700 hp and has a top speed of 217 mph. It’s available in coupe and roadster versions, but the latter is more expensive (about $90k).
5. Pagani Huayra BC Roadster
The Pagani Huayra BC may be one of the fastest cars in the world, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone. The Huayra BC is a track-only car with no roof and an aggressive aerodynamic design. It features a 6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine that delivers 770 horsepower to all four wheels, reaching 60 mph from a standstill in 2.7 seconds and hitting top speeds over 230 mph, the fastest Pagani ever made. This powertrain makes the Huayra BC one of the most expensive road cars on this list (only 150 examples will be built), but if you have enough cash to buy one, it’ll be worth every penny spent!
6. Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach Package
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach Package is one of the best sports cars in the world. It has incredible power, handling, speed, and price. Let’s take a look at its components and history.
According to Car and Driver magazine: “The Turbo S is a monster; it’s a track car disguised as a street sedan.” The 2017 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Weissach Package is equipped with an incredible power of 680 horsepower. With this speed and power, you can drive through any road or terrain without problems!
It has an impressive top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h). It also reaches 60 mph from 0-100 km/h in just 2 seconds! This means that if you want to see how fast your car can go, this model would be perfect for you because it will give you exceptional results on every test drive!
7. Toyota MR2
The Toyota MR2 is an affordable sports car that can get you from 0 to 60 mph in 8.2 seconds and has a top speed of 137 mph. The car has 4-wheel independent suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, and front-wheel drive.
8. Mazda Miata
The Mazda Miata is a great sports car for beginners, racers, and enthusiasts. The Miata is known for being affordable and fun to drive. It offers fantastic handling that makes driving it an absolute blast to experience.
The Mazda Miata has been around since 1989 (replaced by the MX-5) and has been going strong. The original model was first released in 1989 as a convertible two-seater with a 1.6-liter engine producing 116 horsepower at 5500 rpm and 112-pound feet of torque at 4200 RPM. It came with optional power options like air conditioning or heated seats but not both at once! While there were attempts at making coupes available, they never took off. Hence, all models are convertibles today but now come with more powerful engines than ever, including turbocharged options!
9. Nissan 350Z
- Engine: 350Z V6
- Horsepower: 300
- Torque: 270 lb-ft
- Top speed: 165 mph (est.)
- Weight: 3,200 lbs (est.)
- Acceleration: 0-60 in 5.5 seconds (est.)
- Braking distance from 60-0 mph is 106 feet (est.)
The Nissan 350Z is a rear-wheel-drive sports car that Nissan Motor Company produced between 2002 and 2009. It was sold as a 2003 model in North America, Japan, and Europe. The name “350Z” refers to its engine displacement size of 3.5 liters or 3498cc (the same size engine found in the legendary Skyline GTR), while Z represents its place at the top of Nissan’s sports car lineup at the time it debuted.
10. Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4
The Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 is the Japanese automaker’s most powerful sports car and is considered the ultimate evolution of the original 3000GT. While it has a few disadvantages compared to other cars on our list, it also has some serious performance under its hood that can’t be ignored.
The Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 offers performance on par with many supercars from Europe and America at a fraction of the price. It features an advanced twin-turbocharged engine with a 4-wheel drive that delivers 400 horses while still getting decent fuel economy (for an import sports car). The car was built specifically for those who want something different than what’s offered by European manufacturers like Porsche or Aston Martin – but who don’t want something quite as crazy as a Lamborghini or Ferrari.
11. Acura NSX
The Acura NSX is a sports car manufactured by Honda and sold through its Acura brand starting in 1990. The original model was a 2-seater, mid-engine coupe with a V6 engine and manual transmission, but later models included automatic transmissions and all-wheel drive. In 2017, Acura introduced an all-new NSX with a hybrid electric powertrain that includes three electric motors: one per each front wheel and one mounted on the rear axle.
This new NSX is currently available with three different engines: a twin-turbo V6 with 352 hp (261 kW) and an uprated 3.5L V6 with 503 hp (373 kW), or the hybrid module described below. While 0–60 mph times have not been released yet for the latter two engines, we expect them will be comparable to those of other high-performance cars in this price range—about 4 seconds flat for both versions.#ENDWRITE
12. Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX
Some of the best cars on the market are imports. But, if you’re unfamiliar with a particular brand or model, choosing one that’s right for you can be difficult. We’ve researched and developed a list of 13 imported sports cars that should make your decision-making process much easier!
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX is an excellent choice for those who want something powerful and fun to drive. It has a 2.0L turbocharged engine that makes 305 horsepower and 324 lb-ft of torque at 3200 RPMs (1). With all this power under your foot, it’s no surprise that this car has been used in many racing competitions worldwide (2). It was even chosen by Team Galag Cycle as their racecar back in 2012 when they competed against other teams from around Europe (3)! This sporty vehicle has four doors, so there’s plenty of room for passengers, too – making it ideal for family vacations and commuting around town during your daily commute!
13. Honda Prelude Type SH
If you’re looking for a car that can hold its own on the track, look no further than the Honda Prelude Type SH. This vehicle was built with racing in mind and had many unique features that make it one of the best-imported sports cars.
The Honda Prelude Type SH is one rare car, as only 446 were ever made. The bodywork is sleek and aerodynamic, while the suspension has been lowered over an inch to help give better handling when driving aggressively through turns. The engine is also unique: it’s an all-aluminum V6 that produces 195 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. at 5500 rpm (for reference, most engines produce about 120 hp). Even though this car isn’t as quick as some others on our list when it comes to straight-line speed (0-60 mph takes 8 seconds), you’ll find yourself having no trouble catching up to other vehicles once you get them in your sights thanks to its rapid acceleration from standstill. And don’t worry about breaking down—the Honda Prelude Type SH has become known for its reliability over time!
