The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is the car you need. While not as powerful as the Z06 or ZR1 models, it still outpaces the base model at every turn. I’ve heard an owner refer to this car as “the most perfectly balanced corvette for city driving.” -Random Dude in a Restaurant (2017)
The 488 J50 is powered by a 3.9L V8 equipped with two twin-scroll turbochargers. The powerhouse produces 661 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque. The twin-turbos help thrust the 488 J50 from zero to sixty in 2.9 seconds and it can run the quarter mile in just 10.45 seconds. Run it flat out a bit more than a quarter mile and you will hit the top speed of 205 mph before you know it.
Equipped as an option on the Gran Sport 455, only 400 of the GSX Stage 1 packages were sold in 1970. The package boosted the performance of the lightweight 455 engine to 360 hp. That isn’t too impressive until you hear about the GSX Stage 1’s 510 lb-ft of torque. That was the highest torque output of any American production performance car until the introduction of the Series 2 V10 Dodge Viper in 2003.
The Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio is a Ferrari 458 Spider with a whole other body. Designed to honor the memory of Sergio Pininfarina, the car embodies the uniqueness and artistic nature of its namesake. None of the other hot cars on our list are built sans windshield or feature aerodynamic headrests which are attached to the roll bar. This Ferrari also features the powerful personality of Sergio Pininfarina in the guise of a 4.5L engine that is capable of 562 hp and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds.
