All About the Best Muscle Sports Car
Muscle sports cars – these are really fast cars but not supercars. They can be of various body styles, such as hot hatches, hot sedans, and coupes. Some come from the factory as muscle sports cars, but others start life as a simple hatchback or run-of-the-mill sedan and are turned into a muscle sports car by an ace engine tuner. This is where you will find:
Muscle sports cars like the Firebird Trans Am WS61 and Chrysler 300C SRT-8
Hot hatches like the Ford Focus ST and Volkswagen Golf GTI
Hot sedans and coupes like the Jaguar XF and BMW 650i
Top tuners like BMW M Center, Haman and Linen filter
Also, you will find advice on buying a muscle sports car, and how to get the funds you need – how to raise your income to the next level.
The great thing about these muscle sports cars is that they can look just like the car of the guy next door, or they can look outrageous. But they have a turn of speed that puts them above others.
Or, you can have a really small car that keeps up with the big boys. Even if you rely on the carmaker to tune the engine, you can get some really hot hatches and sedans these days – real muscle sports cars.
These muscle sports cars can look rather ordinary – some people like to slip through the traffic unseen. They don’t have the handling of a supercar, but they can be a lot of fun.
Hot hatches just don’t have the performance or price to put them in the supercar league, and most lack that precision of handling you find in a supercar. These hot hatches are usually enormous fun to drive because you can actually use most if not all of their power quite often. But few make it as true muscle sports cars.
Ford Focus ST (XR5) and GTI are good hot hatches
Good examples of hot hatches are the Ford Focus ST and Volkswagen GTI. Both these hot hatches handle well.
A sedan or coupe can be a muscle sports car, and there are plenty about.
Well, this varies a lot, but 130-150 mph with 0-60 in 5-7 seconds is what we expect.
In Europe, hot hatches, such as the Focus ST, GTI and Honda Civic Type-R are very popular. Mazda’s 3 MPS (Mazda speed) also packs a real punch, well above its weight.
The downside with most hot hatches is front-wheel drive – the exception being the BMW 130i hot hatch, also available as a smart coupe. This could be turned into a real cracker of a muscle sports car.
