Top 7 Sports Cars That Can Be Hard To Drive

People wonder at happening sports cars that feel relatively cosy on the road. But most sports cars fall into the category of “rough around the edges,” just as you’d expect and want in such a machine. Then there are a handful of cars that were born to misbehave. Check out the list below for seven supercars that are too hot to handle.

Dodge Viper

The Viper has a history of besting even some of the most skilled drivers. The Dodge Viper ACR and ACR-X have retained a Nurburgring Nordschleife of 7:12 and 7:03, beating cars worth tenfold the price. Mechanical issues, including brake problems, and tricky handling once relegated the Viper to the position of “the super car you’d be crazy to get.” Dodge Viper SRT® has earned a world-class reputation in Canada with dominating race victories that circle the globe. The big, bad bully has two-way 10-click adjustable competition coil-over Bilstein shocks and greatly increased spring rates, helping its performance on the track.


Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Part land yacht and part cruise missile, the Hellcat is really in a category of its own. The Challenger is based on a large-car architecture that it shares with the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans.  Although its interior is perfectly comfortable and spacious, it’s difficult maneuvering this 4,449-pound beast around town. The interior, despite all its space, is a dark cave, especially for those in the back seat. As in all pony cars, visibility isn’t great, especially to the rear. Fortunately, the Hellcat isn’t about handling finesse; it’s about enjoying its raw 707 hp and hitting 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. And creating big, smoky burnouts. And, of course, the V-8 cars are quick and sound fantastic.

Acura NSX

The NSX is billed as an “everyday supercar,” but it throws some unexpected curveballs that suggest otherwise. When it’s driven, the response is unparalleled. This is a car created with and for emotion, engineered to become an extension of its driver with such fidelity, it’s hard to find the line between man and machine. This turbocharged sports coupe acts like it’s naturally aspirated, and its three-motor/V-6 plug-in hybrid system produces an impressive 573 hp. But the prototype model we drove suffered from numb steering unless you select track mode, which made the vehicle anything but an everyday sports car. Instead, it got loud and unruly.

Porsche 911 R

This supercar is as wild as it gets, defying the gizmo-overkill, nanny-driven automotive society we live in today.It’s not as flashy as a Lamborghini or Ferrari or even the 911 GT3 RS, but don’t let that or its mere 500-hp rating deceive you. With an exhaust note to kill, there’s practically no sound deadening to shield you from the violence to protect your ears from the outside elements, you’re subjected to a deafening not all pleasant but every one honest.

Cadillac CTS-V

Lap the notion of what makes a high-performance sedan with the new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. The most powerful vehicle in our 112-year history, this third generation V-Series combines functional design and sophisticated technology. Built as a confident track performer and refined daily driver, this is the pinnacle of Cadillac’s performance design. All bets are off when traction and stability controls are shut down, but beware that the back tires are prone to spinning.

Any Lotus

The Lotus Evora is a sports car produced by British car manufacturer company Lotus. It demonstrate some of the best traits that lightweight engineering has to offer, but are often plagued by reliability and ride quality issues. On the track, the Lotus Evora can be quite rewarding if you’re careful. When testing a 2011 Evora S, we noted it requires a lot of involvement from the driver. . The swift but posh Lotus Evora S adds a supercharger and gains a whole lot of thurst. Can this Japanese-powered Brit beat the likes of the Porsche 911?

As a whole, this car has a quirky crudeness that can both be appreciated & at times, despised

Tesla Model S P90D

The maximum-performance Model S is pretty ludicrous, even when it isn’t in Ludicrous Speed mode. Software update 8.0 is the most significant over-the-air redesign of the Tesla touchscreen since the launch of Model S in 2012. A modern look -cum- functional updates. But they produce the acceleration with much sound and fury, which is lovely if you’re at the track and appreciate the performance. One condition that the Tesla’s autopilot still doesn’t handle well is the need to intentionally let other drivers merge into your lane, either because a construction zone is about to end their lane or because they are merging from an on-ramp.
