Think that fast hot rod is just for men? Think again. More women are getting behind the wheel of sports cars and loving it. Here are some great options for women who just want to drive.
You can’t go wrong with a Jag. It’s available as a coupe or convertible and with a turbocharged inline-four or V-6. The look is elegant, classy, and oh-so-British. Of course, the old adage is still somewhat true; that you can’t afford a Jag unless you can afford its repairs. But you can let import car repair Issaquah WA handle that and spend your time enjoying the road.
Aston Martin Vantage
Okay, so admittedly this car is for the woman with deep pockets, but what a car! The Mercedes-designed V8 delivers all the power you could want while the electronic controls offer perfect handling. And can we talk about the looks? The lines are long, low, and lean, and the grill is enough to scare anyone who sees it in the rear view mirror.
For anyone who needs something in a more realistic price range, and that’s most everyone these days, the GTI is a perfect little roadster. It can go from zero to sixty in under six seconds and still offer four doors and cargo room in the back. The handling is superb. Go ahead and take those corners faster than you might otherwise. This VW has got your back.
Alfa Romeo 4C
There has to be an Italian car on this list, and Lambos are a tad unrealistic. This Alfa really delivers on performance. It’s a bit wild and unpredictable, but there’s such a joy in the responsiveness of the engine and the command you have over its power that any negatives are quickly brushed to the side.
