Well one of my favorite editions of the 997 Porsche’s are the GT2 and GT3 models. They look so good and are meant for the track, although you can also use them for daily driving. I think that’s one of the things I commend Porsche on is how they make supercars that are obtainable and can also be used in most everyday situations. This car comes with components from the RSR race version of the GT3 models and is packed with a 4.0L straight six engine tucked nicely behind its bum. Only 600 copies are to be produced all fixed with an only manual transmission :).

#10 BMW M6 

Power: 560 hp ,     Torque: 502 ft/lb

Engine: V8 Twin-Turbine

0-60: 4.2’s

Top Speed: 190 mph

The BMW sedan/coupe performance models are almost complete. With the alpina B7 coming out first followed by the beautiful M5; I’m falling in love with Bimmers all over again. Although I haven’t driven the new models, I hope they still keep the promise of giving an more than exceptional ride and qualitiy in not only performance, but in the parts they offer; wait what am I saying, of course they will. Euro tuners such as AC Schnitzer, Vorsteiner, Prior Design, etc have already started marketing on the new F type rides. I seriously can’t wait for the new F M3.

#13 2012 Audi RS5

Yea Yea I was late, sorry, but here it is the new 2012 RS5 is my pick for the good looking rides of 2012. Audi made a strong move with this new model back in 2006/2007 also with their innovative LED lighting system. I was very impressed with the car and fell in love with the S5 model when it strutted its way through. When the first R model was made it looked even meaner and packed a powerful punch, although I would still pick a M3 over it. I’m not going to get into details about the car, because obviously you might have already gone other sites such as European car, top speed, blah blah blah to get that. (My English teachers would be made at my sentence structures in this post)

I do wish they kept the car the same, it seems a little to fast for them to move on this model since it did very well in sales (like Nissan and the 370z). The new A5 doesn’t have that much of a self made look anymore unless you get the S-line package or S model. The shape looks dull and like almost all other Audi’s, it seems like they are slowly coming closer and closer to looking like Volkswagen’s.  For example just look at the A4 and the passat/CC too close to looks and far in price. Some parts, as most VW/Audi enthusiasts know, are also shared between the groups. I do agree though that if I bought Audi I would use parts that are better and more efficient to build that car; but does that take the heart away from the car.

Ok enough of me being a little girl and crying over this, I really love the A5 and A6 models, they are definitely the only two that are keeping me interested in street legal Audi’s.

Price: $69,000

Engine: 4.5 FSI V8

Power:  450HP / 317 ft-lb

0-60: 4.7 sec

Uniqueness: crown gear differential to allow drivers to change power distribution to the Front or Rear tires instead of the 50/50 on all 4 wheels.

#15 Lexus LFA NUR

Love this ride, the sound of it and the beauty of Japanese engineering. The NUR edition of the LFA is for someone who wants a road and track car–as if it already isn’t–to use. With a package deal of revised tweeks to the engine as well as new wheels, carbon fiber canards, permanent spoiler, and suspension upgrades this ride is still looking good as it rolled out in 2012. Besides the Porsche Carrera GT and Pagani Cinque its one of the best sounding cars I’ve heard so far.
