It’s easy to let life bring you down sometimes – driving around in an endless traffic jam on the way to work, to school, to the grocery store – the car can quickly become an extension of the office or of the home.
Let’s look at a few motors which can really put the fun back into driving – cars are not just about getting from A to B you know, some of us may have forgotten that we used to love to drive for driving sake.
Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon – on first glimpse you could be forgiven that thinking this stylish, elegant Sport Wagon is just another “run of the mill” family station wagon but there’s definitely more to this motor than meets the eye. Okay, there’s plenty of room for the whole family, their friends, the family dog, stroller and nappies but not only will it transport your brood from A to B in comfort it will also get them there in superfast (and of course safe) time. The motor has a supercharged V-8 6.2 liter engine with 556 hp, 6 speed manual transmission and more than 550 lb-ft of torque. This model has “fun” as a standard feature. Hold on to your hats.
Jeep Wrangler – is fun personified at a different pace. It won’t get you there anywhere near as rapidly as the previous motor but it’s great for exploring the wilderness. When it comes to fording streams, rock crawling or sliding across the slippery mud then this is the real deal. If this sounds like your idea of fun then you definitely need a car like this.
Ford SVT Raptor – if the Jeep Wrangler is a mountain lion then this is the desert rat of cars. This vehicle can rip across the sand jumping dunes with a super suspension system which makes it almost comfortable, even at the most incredible speeds. It looks aggressive, it eats up the sand dunes and its unique suspension system makes it a real contender for some good clean (well, sort of clean) fun.
Ford Mustang GT – the 2014 model is the last of the bunch . . . with a solid rear axle perfect for burnouts, smoke shows and lighting up the rubber. The next generation will have advanced technology which will obviously have its advantages . . . along with a bunch of drawbacks. Will it be quite as much fun as this? Probably not . . .
Nissan 370Z – this fantastic motor was designed with fun firmly in mind – the car is perfect for the driver who yearns for a fun car with a reasonable price tag. It has oodles of power with lashings of torque available all the way through the power range making it super fast driving out of corners. It also handles like a dream . . . fast, fun, affordable . . . what more do you need? Check out these and many more great Nissans at metronissanredlands.com, you got that? Go to http://metronissanredlands.com and see what they’ve got – they’ve got brilliant selection of new and used cars with of course, some fabulous Nissans to choose from.
2014 SRT Viper – this beast is incredibly tame and well trained to obey your every command. This car is certainly not for the faint hearted – dare you attempt to master the 8.4 liter V-10 engine with 600 lb – ft of torque? Dare you push the 6 speed manual transmission to the limits and squeeze it until every drop of fun has been extracted? Go on then but remember – drive carefully.
