rear shot of the Maserati GranTurismo MC StradalePerformance and Luxury have gone hand in hand since the very early days of motoring. The budding auto industry was geared first to the rich man who no longer wanted to be dragged around by a horse. In the 1920s, cars like the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost proved their meddle on the track, such as the infamous Brooklands track, where it went 109 miles per hour. Then you had the great grand Prix racers, where the finest of luxury automakers, Mercedes-Benz, Bugatti, and Alfa Romeo to name but a few, sold their great big luxury cars by winning on the track. And you could order your fine European roadster with an exact replica of a racing chassis. In the US, Duisenberg proved their quality at the Indianapolis 500, repeatedly.

Top 10 4-Cylinder Sports Cars

2013 hyundai genesis coupe
Four Cylinders have been around for quite some time. Yes in the 1960’s a big V-8 was a must for sports cars. Then in the 1980’s a bunch of lightweight cars came around that were powered by 4-cylinder engines. Now these small displacement motors rely on high tech tuning or turbo power to produce great horsepower figures. Four-Cylinder engines are common for quite a few reasons, economy, efficiency, weight savings, and availability being the most relevant. In the world of sports cars, especially. 4-Cylinder engines don’t have the power of a V-12, or the roar of a V-8, but an inline-4 (and Boxer 4s in some cases) are both the most affordable and accessible.
