That is basically it, and in our experience, there were no more than 48 hours between application and our first drive for both Uber and Lyft, making it a very enticing option if you’re in need of quick work. As it is rather easy to set up your driving job with Uber and Lyft, you probably want to know how much can be earned!?
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.
Some of you might not consider this to be an upgrade from a Stanza. I get that. But there’s a huge following for Nissan hardbody trucks, and let’s face it, nobody makes a basic small truck anymore. Most Nissan trucks originally used engines of the VE and other styles, so keep it in the family and choose a KA swap. If you need an occasional parts hauler that doubles as a weekend drift machine, these are a pretty good choice.
Undeniably, one of the greatest hot cars of all time is the first model year of the Chevrolet Corvette. Granted, power numbers are nothing compared to the modern supercars we have listed so far, but this classic beauty is timeless. Cars with the original paint are easy to spot…they are all Polo White. Power comes from a 235 cu.in. inline-six. The 1953 Corvette features the Blue Flame version of this engine. The Blue Flame designation means that the engine features hydraulic lifters and produces 136 hp.
Any car made before 2008 or even the second generation of the S2000 claiming to be a club racer is a fraud, which is why you’ll find some examples as low as $10k. Don’t be fooled though while these are crazy cheap cars, they’re not that cheap. Expect to spend around $22k for a genuine Club Racer.
The HCCI engine doesn’t use spark plugs for ignition since such lean fuel mixtures can’t be ignited by them, but the SkyActiv-X tech does. Mazda’s new engines manage that by using a second dollop of fuel that isn’t as lean as the primary air/fuel mixture. This secondary mixture gets ignited by a spark plug, raises the cylinder pressure and, in turn, combusts the primary mixture. The new engine tech is promising even better efficiency and more power, but it seems that engine noise may need some more fine-tuning.
The current third-generation BN Mazda 3 is hands-down one of the most handsome hatchbacks on the market. It follows the Japanese automaker’s exterior design philosophy that’s become a hallmark feature of all Mazda vehicles in the last few years. The 5-door hatchback Mazda 3 is $1,300 more expensive than its 4-door sedan counterpart, but it provides almost double the cargo space with the rear seats folded. Other than that, there are no real differences between the two body styles. MY 2019 will, however, bring at least one important update to the powertrain department, and likely an entire body revision.
These RWD monsters are still somewhat pricey due to rarity compared to the sedan and coupe models, but you can expect to find some examples in the ballpark of $45,000. That’s really not bad at all though when you compare this car to the likes of the Porsche Panamera and wagon offerings from Mercedes AMG.
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.
There’s only one place to find these used engines: the venerated Honda S2000. That means someone will have to wreck one and extract its beating heart for you to commit automotive debauchery. But act fast: Honda only built about 110,000 for you to choose from, and we can already think of 50,000 perfect uses for an F20C.
The F136 can be found in the Ferrari F430 and California, the Alfa 8C, and Maserati models dating back to 2002. This includes the often-daily-driven-by-pretentious-fools Quattroporte, lending credence to its reliability, but if you want the real deal step up and pull one out of a 458.
As per BLS research, the median annual wage of school bus drivers is $28,330. It is not that much, is it? However, these drivers work part-time and only when the school is actually in session. If you want to land this driving job, you simply have to be good with kids. This is, logically, really important. As for other requirements, you have to own a valid driver’s license and have First Aid and CPR training (not in all states). Obviously, a clean driving record and driving at the speed limit is common sense here and patience. A LOT of it. After all, you would deal with kids here you know, those little monsters.
The Honda S2000 is arguably one of the most iconic roadsters of the 21st century. While there are plenty of ‘Club Racers’ for sale right now, you should know that most of them aren’t real. In fact, the CR trim was only produced stateside for two years (’08-’09) during which only 699 of the planned 2000 examples were made, making this car exceedingly rare.
