We know, performance cars are not really the first to come to mind when you’re looking for a new car. Heck, it’s probably sitting on that wish-list right next to a house in the inner-burbs of Sydney and a trip around the world. We also know that we’re more likely to find them higher up a car-lovers list than someone looking for an a-to-b-transporter.
But if you’re one of those peeps that think performance cars are too masculine and tough for your city drive, we’re here to tell you (or ask very nicely) to reconsider.
Here are WhichCar’s top picks for those who care less about fast-cars and more about stylish fast-cars. But be warned, some of them may break the bank… and by break the bank we mean make it explode!
