Cars, in general, possess both form and function. One of the things that I’ve learned having spent a good portion of my life in the wholesale automobile business is that auto brands NEVER compromise aesthetics vs performance. Both are important not only because of the way a car looks (yes, we buy with our eyes), but also because some of the slick stylings is actually aero-dynamic, making cars more functional.
BUT THERE IS SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT SPORTS CARS!
Something that makes them stand out when it comes to beauty. And we are not talking about external features only. There is more to physical features like sleekness of the car, that determines its beauty.
Here are some of the characteristics that endear sports cars to car enthusiasts.
- Sports cars have attitude at first glance.
Sports cars speak the attitude that they possess. They are not like mere cars whose presence can be ignored. They captivate the eyes of those who see them. They imply that thrill and enjoyment can be expected when their hands are those that control the wheel. These fast cars stand above other cars, that are seen every day, primarily because the designs imply what they are capable of doing. A sleek look should match the great performance.
- Sports cars possess greater power.
Their power comes from their more powerful engines and can do more than ordinary tasks because of the features that only they possess.
- Sports cars are made for driving pleasure.
I once said here that a good car can make you a better driver. It’s true. Why? Because ordinary cars make driving monotonous and boring, while on the other hand, sports cars primarily aim to give the drivers a “high” feeling of speed and control. Only sports cars can provide that need for drivers who seek adventure. They bring the thrill back to driving and express what other cars can not. Sports cars are not designed just for practicality, but for pleasure too.
- Sports cars are made for drivers who enjoy their ‘wild side’.
Someone who really loves to drive will have the need to express this ‘wild side’. Only a sports cars make any road a venue to satisfy those needs and match the “wildness” that drivers innately have. For that reason, sports cars perfectly compliment the child in every driver.
- Sports cars have evolved and improved through the years.
I know that I appreciate the improvements that have been made to sports cars. You could say that sports car technology has infinite possibilities. The stereotypes of sports cars have long been debunked, just take a look at the sports-car SUVS or an EV with that slick sporty styling. You see, those limits have been crossed. The only thing that car enthusiasts can do is to watch as these improvements unfold before their very eyes.
- Sports cars make their owners feel good about themselves.
There’s something very empowering about getting behind the wheel of a car that’s made for speed.
With all these things said about the intrinsic and extrinsic beauty that sports cars possess, only a person who does not appreciate their beauty and/or speed will not opt to get one.
