Driving Jobs are plentiful, but almost all of them do require some sort of preparation and requirements to be achieved. I compiled a list of 15 driving jobs for those of us that want bring their driving passion into their work life. There are some surprises in store, so sit back and enjoy!
All things considered, the Honda Civic Type R isn’t just your run-of-the-mill hot hatch, but a well-balanced powerful compact which looks good, handles even better, and makes even the best sporty hatchbacks dull in comparison. There may come a time in your life where you desperately need a vehicle, but the scope of your search needs to contain only crazy cheap cars. You’re in luck, though, because that’s exactly what our list today is about: crazy cheap cars.
Some enthusiast may point out the Road Runner-based Superbird, as a better car but we are not among them. The styling was too radical and the Hemi powered Road Runner was just a better overall car.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI has always been and continues to be the definition of a hot hatch. Prior to the upcoming debut of the eighth-generation Golf for MY 2020, the iconic compact will put on the Golf 7 moniker one last time. The 2019 Volkswagen Golf will hence arrive unchanged, but all-time-favorite GTI models have already been updated recently.
Maybach built the Exelero as a one-off concept car in 2005. It swiftly became the most expensive car sold, garnering $8 million(U.S.). The Exelero is powered by a 5.9L twin turbo V12 engine. Output is a proven 690 hp and 752 ft-lb of torque. It has a top speed of 218 mph and a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.3 seconds. Power aside, the design is awe-inspiring. Where other hot cars will turn a few heads, the Exelero will stop traffic anywhere.
Okay, we all know the LS is the king of used engines, but it’s an unspoken rule that if you mention engine swaps you have to mention the LS so let’s get it over with. Now the stuff of internet memery, the LS swap began as the most economical way to get a light and reliable V8 into a small space.
Find one of these in any old breadvan in the RV section of Craigslist no lowballs, I know what I have. The Cones-in-a-Parking-Lot Society scoffs at you for doing anything to a stock Miata outside of firming it up, so putting used engines in Miatas means provoking an internet army. It’s rare to hear about a swap that improves something about the stock balance of performance and durability, because most of them throw it out the window.
So what do you get for $22k? One of the best and most balanced driving experiences of your life. This car is the ultimate daily roadster, and it offers a perfect blend of performance (thanks to a 237 hp, 160 lb-ft 2.2L I4) and handling (thanks to aero upgrades which reduced aero lift by upwards of 80%). It may not fit in terribly well with some of the other crazy cheap cars here, and especially not on craigslist, but it’s worth every last penny.
