Sports Cars for 2014
There are cars that take you from point A to B and then there are cars that make you leave point A with no destination in mind. These are cars that beg to be driven and they reward the driver with an unparallel experience with their looks, sheer power, pinpoint perfect handling or an intoxicating combination of all the above in what is usually a drop dead gorgeous body. These cars are not practical, they aren’t fuel efficient and are usually more expensive than one can imagine. That said, they are usually the object of desire for everyone who comes in close proximity to one often inspiring the same amounts of lust a beautiful woman would. These then, are the sportscars and supercars that brighten up the automotive world with their loud exhausts, low slung stances and beautiful forms. If you are one of those lucky few who has the moolah for one, we take you through 10 cars for 2014 that are certainly worth your while.
