In cars, as in people, appearances can be deceiving. The model itself can be very simple, if not completely inconspicuous, but under the hood there can be amazing power. With such auto guys will definitely be able to win the hearts of girls and triumph at traffic lights. And while not being conspicuous to others. Do you think you need to have something like a Jaguar or a Ferrari for this? But no, to get a first-class car you don’t have to go broke financially. In this article Idolwiki and Zcarsales.com will tell you about 7 beautiful cars that will give their owner an unforgettable experience.
1.Mercedes-Benz W124 E500 (1991-1994)
The Mercedes-Benz W124 E500 is just a wonderful car. For its “brutal” character, in Russia this model was called the “top” or “wolf”. Its power is quite understandable, because the engineers from the Porsche company took an active part in the design of this model.
As a result, the car was awarded with a V-shaped eight-cylinder 320-horsepower 5.0-liter engine and a torque of 470 N • m. From a place to a hundred, this heavyweight passenger car accelerates in 6.1 seconds, but has a limitation from the factory at around 250 km / h. This “Mers” also has a minus – a fuel tank with a small volume – only 90 liters. It ended quickly, because on average, the fuel consumption within the city was 10.3 liters, and on the highway this figure increased to 17.
2. Mazdaspeed 6 (2005-2007)
Mazdaspeed 6 disguised as a sedan. One of Mazda’s most successful cars was the Miata Roadster, which subsequently had a profound effect on the development of subsequent models of the company.
Thus, the famous Mazda 6 sedan appeared. The all-wheel drive version in the “face” of the Mazdaspeed 6 had a 274-horsepower turbo engine with 4 cylinders and a six-speed gearbox. With all this, the design remained practically unchanged, and the sporty Mazdaspeed 6 looked like a familiar family-type sedan. Over the past time, the car has managed to become a cult one, and in 2016 the company started to release an updated version.
3. Volkswagen Golf V GTI (2005-2008)
The Volkswagen Golf V GTI is the sporty version of the popular sedan. Since the 75th year, Volkswagen has managed to release more than 1,700,000 “pumped-over” Golf GTIs from the assembly line.
The fifth family of a miniature hatchback received from the factory a 200-horsepower 2.0-liter TFSI turbo engine and an automated DSG gearbox – with such a “legacy” the car effortlessly bypassed competitors on the road, and the driver always felt comfortable. In places up to a hundred, this “baby” accelerates in 6.9 seconds, and the speed limits are set at 233 km / h.
4. Subaru Forester 2.5 XT (2004-2005)
Subaru Forester 2.5 XT – second generation crossover, second generation. The “life” of the Subaru Forester 2.5 XT was so short that the car did not even have time to choose its niche. The car has a 210-horsepower 2.5-liter boxer turbo engine. Unlike the classic Forester modification, the XT has a new all-wheel drive system and a slightly different design. Acceleration time from zero to hundred is only 6 seconds, and this is a ten-year-old “Japanese”!
5. Chevrolet Cobalt SS (2005-2009)
Chevrolet Cobalt SS is a compact version of a sports car. There are motorists who often criticize the classic modification for a technical flaw. And the manufacturer himself often recalled the car due to numerous problems and shortcomings. The miniature Cobalt SS, however, is a different matter.
This modification is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo engine and a five-speed “mechanics”. The improved suspension and 250-horsepower engine allow the Cobalt SS to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 6 seconds. Unexpected, right? After all, it looks like a completely unremarkable sedan.
6.Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG (2007)
The Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG minivan is one of the fastest cars. Despite the fact that the Mercedes-Benz R-Class minivans are not so popular due to their high cost, this did not deter the manufacturer from launching the R63 AMG into the public.
The car is equipped with a 6.2-liter 510-horsepower V8 engine, due to which the R63 AMG accelerates from zero to a hundred in 5 seconds. And this is a minivan for a group of 6 people! However, due to the fact that the production of the car lasted only a year, few had time to “taste” the car, and certainly no one expected such power from a simple minivan.
7. Ford Contour SVT (1998-2000)
The Ford Contour SVT is a super version of the Ford Mondeo. The company was very hopeful that the Contour would be very successful worldwide, but the development based on the Ford Mondeo proved to be a failure in the American market. However, the car did not disappear into oblivion, and this is largely the merit of the SVT version.
The latter was equipped with a 200-horsepower V8 engine with a volume of 2.5. The model has a reinforced suspension, improved brakes and a unique five-speed gearbox. In the American market, the SVT has proved to be a competitor even for the sporty and impeccable BMW M3.
