Sleek, sexy and sure to stand out for the crowd, sports cars are beautiful machines. Renowned for their high performance and fun to drive, there’s many reasons why you should consider buying a sports car, to get you started here are 5 reasons we think they are a top choice:
1. Premium driving quality
If there’s one thing that all sports cars are built for, it is premium driving quality. Primarily built for performance, the focus of designing these types of cars lies in the performance of the steering, cornering and speed, not the practicality or affordability. Sports cars provide a far more superior driving experience compared to normal cars and offer a challenge to even the most discriminating drivers. Definitely not ‘just another car’, there’s a huge difference between driving a sports car compared to the performance of other vehicles.
2. Beautifully designed
Although appearance is rarely the primary reason for buying a car (and rightly so), there’s no shadow of a doubt that a sports car such as the Mazda MX-5 is a beautiful machine that will truly stand out on the road compared to the other cars. Of course the driving quality, performance and function are important, but when it comes to sports cars it is essential to many that they are also aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Many sports car driver’s buy them with an idea in their mind’s eye of how they will look on the road, and the beauty of the sleek lines and sharp, sporty style will no doubt turn many heads as they pass by.
3. Potential for becoming a future classic
The reality is that the vast majority of new cars will depreciate in value as soon as they are driven off the dealership’s show room lot. Unlike most normal cars for which depreciation is typically between 15-35% in the first year and up to 50% or more over three years, sports cars tend to have a stronger value than normal automobiles. Although there are no guarantees, sports cars are more likely to become future classics due to their better quality and beautiful design. Older cars designated as ‘classic’ still demand a hefty price tag for a high-performance car, and some even become models that collectors yearn for.
4. What the car says about you as a person
For many people, owning a sports car is a dream that they have fantasised about for years. With the sleek and sexy design, they are beautiful to look at and their performance on the road is unrivalled. Drivers of these cars often yearn to express themselves and emanate how they see themselves in the car they drive. Not ones to blend in with the rest of the crowd, owning a sports car gives you the opportunity to make people stand up and take notice.
5. All about the Fun!
There’s no doubt about it, with the winning combination of premium driving quality and a beautiful look, a sports car is fun to drive. Effortlessly weaving round tight corners thanks to precise steering and a lightweight and nimble body, there’s no other feeling quite like it. Some models, including the Mazda MX-5, come with the choice of a soft-top roof that you can put down for that highly sought-after ‘wind through your hair’ experience that truly captures the feeling of fun and wonder that you should experience when driving a sports car.
