The Most Overvalued Sports Cars of 2013


What’s the most overvalued sportscars right now and which vehicles do the Top Gear guys consider not worthy? With Nissan announcing an electric sports car and Mexican sports companies all set to double with VUHL unveiling the ‘05’, the all new premium track-day car, a lot is happening in the sports car market right now.

Most sports cars shouted “fuel economy” even a few years back, however, 2013 is a different picture altogether with style and sportiness coming back with a bang. Here are some of the most hyped, yet the most overvalued sportscars right now that steal the show.

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sports at $2,400,000 remains the most luxurious street legal production car that will take the seats of your pants and toss you around for an exciting ride. Reaching 0-60 mph in just 2.5 seconds, it was tested to reach the top speed of 267 mph. However, the car is going to be limited to 258 mph, 10 mph short of its terminal velocity. Also, speculations reveal that the gas tank might empty in 30 seconds while traveling at top speed.

The Lamborghini Veneno, priced at a whopping $4,000,000 and unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2013 is based on Aventador supercar. With a 6.5 liter V12 engine, it boasts a top speed of 221 mph and chugs hydrocarbon. With its looks like the wingless fighter jet and scissor doors, it is priced a bit too high and if you are looking for some fresh air, you will have to roll down the windows.

The next in line to follow the bandwagon of the most overvalued sports cars is the celestial and effulgent Aston Martin Vanquish, priced at $279,995. The sleek carbon fiber VH and bonded aluminum mono-coque body, two-door coupe body, has a top speed of 220 mph in high speed testing, which makes it one of the most desirable cars for the sports car aficionados.

Classy interiors, a touch sensitive central console is all very nice, however, the latest breed of super sports cars are much faster than this beauty. Even with the perfect body and chassis of carbon fiber, this Bond car however lacks the dynamism that the other super sports cars of the same category have.
