When it comes to sports cars, there are definitely plenty of options, but if your budget is more flexible and you really want to treat yourself, you should go to the exotic car category. If you can’t necessarily afford one in full, there are always short-term rental companies and rental apps where you can sometimes find real bargains.
I know, we’re talking about dreams here, but the dream is a reality for certain and that’s why I offer you my Top 10 of the best exotic sports cars for the summer of 2022. My criteria are simple. The car must be flamboyant, very fast and noisy. So, might as well tell you that there will be no electric car in this Top 10. For the rest, it’s really a matter of taste even if there is a certain logic in the order in which you find yourself. his cars.
Some will say that the Chevrolet Corvette does not belong in a Top 10 on exotic cars, but it is quite the opposite. Admittedly, for the moment, the sports car from the American manufacturer occupies 10 th place, but with the imminent arrival of the Z06 version, it is very likely that the Corvette will move up a few places next year. This is by far the most affordable car of the lot. Since not everyone has an unlimited budget, it’s a great option for someone who can only shell out around $100,000 for a sports car.
9 – Acura NSX 2022
Concretely, this car should not even be part of this Top 10, because all the allocations for the 2022 model have already been reserved. However, you will always be able to find an immaculate example on the second-hand vehicle market. The Acura NSX is a true technological innovation on 4 wheels and it’s an exotic car that’s rightfully so.
8 – Aston Martin DBS Superleggera
A few years ago, Aston Martin would clearly not have had a place in this Top 10, but the British manufacturer has considerably improved the quality of manufacture of its cars and also their character in general. Thus, we end up with high-level cars capable of competing with any other brand, as is the case with the DBS Superleggera.
7 – Maserati MC20 2022
Maserati went through a dark period during which the brand did not seem to be moving forward and then new models finally started to enter the market starting with the Ghibli. Today, the brand is clearly in good health and the proof is that it finally offers us a new exotic car in the form of the MC20. Ironically, the Italian manufacturer invested very little in marketing for the model. Thus, few people know that this car exists. However, if you’re looking for something different that’s fun to drive and sure to turn heads as you go, this is definitely the car for you.
6 – Ferrari 296 GTB
Ferrari certainly shocked many with the market introduction of this new car which is powered by a V6. Nevertheless, it was something to be expected especially since Formula 1 also switched to V6. Fortunately, this small 3.0-liter engine is accompanied by two turbochargers and a hybrid system, which increases its power to more than 654 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque. It is therefore not an entry-level car and believe me, it is capable of making cars with V8s, V10s and even V12s bite the dust.
5 – Audi R8 2022
The Audi R8 is the safe bet in the category, because it remains among the most affordable models and it is powered by the same mechanics found under the hood of the Lamborghini Huracan essentially. The R8 is more civilized and less exotic, but its sound is no less biblical. In addition, it is a car that ages very well. The arrival on the market of the first generation dates back more than 14 years and the latter still looks like a new car.
4 – Mclaren 720S/765LT 2022
The Mclaren 720s is a true work of modern engineering. It is an excessively fast and precise car. Add to that its racy looks and advanced technologies and you have the recipe for the perfect modern exotic car.
3 – Porsche 911 2022
The Porsche 911 probably offers one of the widest ranges to be found in the exotic car segment with more docile and sophisticated versions at one extreme and track beasts at the other. If you really want to have fun, it is towards the Turbo and GT3 versions that you should go. I know, the Porsche 911 might not look as exotic as the other cars on this list, but I promise it’s the car that will give you the most bang for your buck behind the wheel. If you like to drive, there’s no other car that measures it here.
2 – Ferrari F8 Tributo 2022
You can’t do a Top 10 on exotic cars without mentioning Ferrari and this is the second model in this Top 10 here. The F8 Tributo is undoubtedly one of the most desirable exotic cars in the world and the real challenge here is to flatter the brand in the right way to get allocated an allowance. How money doesn’t buy everything.
Lamborghini makes opulent, noisy cars with sleek lines and flamboyant colors. If we could look up the definition of exotic car in the dictionary, a photo of the Lamborghini Huracan would certainly accompany it. If you can afford it, this is a car I highly recommend you buy.
