Sports cars are often perceived as unnecessary and extravagant playthings. While that maybe true, little in this world can compare to the thunderous . The economical and parking friendly hatchback may prove easier for day to day use but few experiences live upto charging down highways at 200 km/h. We take a look at some of the fastest cars currently available in the market.
10. BMW M235i:
When it comes to performance oriented cars, no other car maker stands out as much in the sports car segment as BMW. Spanning decades of brilliance from its motor-sport division, BMW’s M range of cars have been highly praised for their poise and unbelievably brilliant driving dynamics. Although the car maker produces a wide range of M enhanced cars, the M235i is the company’s most accessible product. Powering the M235i is a 3.0 L turbocharged straight six engine that churns out a massive 320 HP and 330 lb-ft of torque.Power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight speed automatic. While BMW uses the the ‘M’ tag followed by a single letter nomenclature system to name its high performance machines, the M235i takes a different route. This is primarily because the 2 Series based sports car is not in the eyes of BMW, a full fledged M division car. Despite this, the M235i offers an ideal mix of German engineering and cost effectiveness un-rivaled in its class. This dream car holds the 10th position in our list of Best Sports cars of 2015.
In a viral video to promote sales, the German car maker staged a flash mob with a fleet of M235i’s to showcase the car’s capabilities. A treat to watch, the video demonstrates the car’s ‘M’ DNA.
9. 2015 Mazda MX-5:
Its finally here folks, the next generation Mazda MX-5.

However, the car still retains classic Mazda elements such as the long hood and stubby rear.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3C6GXY5dHkPowering the Miata will be a 2.0 L four cylinder SkyActiv-G that produces 155 HP and 150 lb-ft of max torque. One might argue that placing the phenomenal BMW M235i below that of a small time Japanese runt seems absurd. But the Mazda MX-5 is a legend in its own right. Best known for popularizing the coupe convertible sports car segment and showing the world that one need not sell a kidney to have a great time behind the wheel, many claim that the MX-5 is the reason why BMW Z4, Porsche Boxster and even the Mercedes Benz SLK exist & it holds the 9th slot in our list of Best Sports cars of 2015.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3C6GXY5dHk
