There’s a reason exotic cars are a rarity on the world’s highways and byways. That’s because they’re not only beautiful works of art, they are both super fast and super expensive. If you’re getting by on middle-class wages, chances are, you can only gaze upon an exotic car with fascination, and perhaps wonder what it would be like to get behind the wheel of one of the most powerful vehicles on the planet. According to Autobytel, exotic cars are prime, if not shining examples of human ingenuity and engineering. From Atlanta, Georgia, to Beijing, China, this is what it takes to qualify as an exotic car: it must be exclusive, expensive, exceptional, and in terms of engineering, extraordinary.
But here’s the more worrisome part of the equation. It also has to be extra fast. Speed kills is not just a slogan, it is a reality. That’s why exotic car owners must be careful not to get carried away behind the wheel. All too often, the need for speed will result in unnecessary accidents which cause personal injury to both driver and victim. These accidents can happen when an exotic car shifts into another lane far too fast, or the driver blows through a stop sign or a red light. Says one Atlanta car accident lawyer, Julian Lewis Sanders and Associates LLC, if you’ve been the victim of an accident involving an exotic car, you should call a personal injury attorney right away. With so many cars congesting the U.S. highways, including very fast models, it’s inevitable that bad accidents are going to occur not just occasionally, but frequently. Most of these accidents occur when the driver makes a poor decision, making them negligent in the eyes of the law. A vehicle’s size and speed can be a recipe for disaster, the law firm asserts.
That said, owners of exotic cars must be extra responsible behind the wheels of these speedy monsters. Anything else can result in harmful injury and death. But with that out of the way, what are the top 5 most hottest and fastest exotic cars available on the market today?
The Exotic and Super Fast 2020 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera
This is the kind of car you’ll see James Bond driving on the narrow, winding roads of the Swiss Alps. The new, exotic DBS Supperleggera (that’s Italian for “super light”), is not only exotically engineered, but it takes advantage of lightweight carbon fiber in its construction. Autobytel states that its frame is stronger than steel, but bears only a relative fraction of steel’s weight. It boasts a twin-turbocharged 5.2 liter V12 that could power a jet plane, producing in incredible 715-horsepower along with 633 lb-ft of torque. It will also go from 0-60 in a hair over three seconds, with a max speed of 200mph. Not a car to be driven by a reckless driver, to say the least. And it’s cost? $330,000.
The Exotic and Luxurious 2020 Bentley Continental GT V8
If a car can be exotic, fast, and luxurious all at the same time, the newly engineered Bentley Continental GT V8 is prime evidence of that. What makes this Bentley different from all the others is its V8 engine that is said to bring a special quickness to the driving experience, which comes in handy when changing lanes on a busy highway. It’s cabin interior is hand-crafted with a rotating three-sided dash display featuring a three gauges plus the infotainment interface, all housed in expensive, polished wood. This exotic ride will run you $200,000.
The Exotic and Stealthy 2020 Bugatti Chiron Sprot 300+
If James Bond is driving the new Aston Martin, you might see Batman driving the exotic, uber-powerful, and stealthy 2020 Bugatti Chron Sport 300+. It is said to be the most extreme of all the exotic cars available to the general public today. Able to reach a top speed of 305MPH, it is also the fastest, making it the most dangerous. How does it achieve such power? Engineered with a quadruple-turbocharged W16 engine (two V8 engines combined, more or less), it can generate more than 1550HP. An incredible auto engineering achievement. Its tail can be extended for optimum aerodynamics and stealth. Since it will cost you $3.9 million, only 30 of them have been constructed.
The Exotic and Airy Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster
Live in a hot climate that’s perfect for an exotic convertible? The exotic and airy Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster will fit the bill. Available as a limited edition model, the SVJ stands for “super veloce jota,” or super velocity in Italian. It’s massive 6.5 liter mid-mounted V12 allows it to hit 60MPH is less than three seconds while it’s top speed is said to be 217MPH. Only 800 examples have been constructed, so act now if you can spare $600,000.
The Exotic and (Somewhat) Affordable 2020 Porsche Taycan
Porche’s premier all-electric vehicle is not only exotic, it is unusually affordable at $152,000. Being all electric its current rival is the Tesla Model S. It might have switched up its carbon producing combustion engine for a trunk filled with an 800-volt electrical system, but it’s able to reach 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds flat. Its maximum power hovers around an impressive 750HP range, but only in quick bursts. It might not take gas, but it’s said to be all Porsche.
There’s a little doubt that exotic cars are mostly engineered for the rich and famous, of which most of you are not. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these beautiful and powerful examples of automotive engineering from a distance. But along with driving these super fast, super powerful cars comes enormous responsibility. Should you be injured by a reckless exotic car driver, you need to contact a reputable personal injury attorney faster than a Lamborghini can reach 0 to 60MPH.
