Anybody should want to drive a cool car. But what makes a car cool? A cool car is one that should raise your coolness quotient. It should be a car that people don’t see all the time. It’s not the car that the stereotypical soccer mom drives that is full of rug rats in the backseats, nor is it one that is chromed out and loaded with flashy rocket boosters.
A cool car is the car that you might take your new crush out on a date in. It’s the car that turns heads and makes you the center of all your friends. Ultimately though, it’s the kind of car that steals your thunder. In a sense, a cool car should have sex appeal. A cool car is very self-satisfied, not caring about what others think. It is precisely this kind of coolness which is uniquely beautiful and magnificent. A cool car should manage magnificence in an effortless manner.
The Top 10 Coolest Cars with Pictures:
1. Ferrari FF
0-60 mph: 3.5 seconds. 651 horsepower. Cost: $300,000.
Drive carefully. This is a supercar on ice. You can’t get cooler than this. This is the car that you want to be the first guy driving, not the second. Imagine driving across a snow bank in the Alps with the fresh, icy wind in your face. I would trade anything and everything (not really) for this all-wheel-drive Ferrari. I’m going to say that this car doesn’t even look perfectly beautiful. In fact, that is why I love it: it doesn’t really care what you think and still give you the kind of performance only experienced by kings. Heck, it will mock every idea you had about what makes a car powerful. P.S. The computer system on the FF can vector its torque and braking pressure depending on tire grip conditions. AWESOME for driving to your winter home in Aspen.
2. Spyker C12 Zagato
0-60 mph: 3.8 seconds. 500-650 horsepower. Cost: $648,000.
The C12 Zagato was designed with F1 styles into its highly ornate body. The Zagato is powered by an engine with 500bhp and can go up to 650bhp with a supercharger. It is a mad house. Despite being priced at $648,000, its raw coolness quotient comes from unmatched aesthetics and power. The C12 Zagato is a cool car fit with skill, beauty, and passion. It is the car you want to take your lover or spouse out on a date with.
3. Jaguar XKRS
0-60 mph: 4.2 seconds. 550 horsepower. Cost: $132,000.
At first the XKRS does not look like much with its inconspicuous style. But seeing it in action can make it grow on you. The styling of the XKRS was never about looks: it’s all about performance. This car pounces like a beast with an AJ V8 power-plant fitted with a twin-vortex Roots supercharger that altogether pack 550 hp, 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph. Did I mention that this car comes only in Italian racing red and French racing blue? That’s all you need really. The architecture of the XKRS is all about perfect geometry and aerodynamics—it doesn’t get much cooler than that. Expect to drop $132,000 for this beast.
4. Audi R8
0-60 mph: 3.6 seconds. 525 horsepower. Cost: $114,200.
The Audi R8 sports 525 womping horses that wail at 8700 RPMs. The body styling is very stealthy and doesn’t scream “look at me!” yet turns as many, if not more, heads and plenty of stares and possibly picture-snapping, too. The pricing is steep at $114,200, although you do get what you pay with this car.
5. Aston Martin One-77
0-60 mph: 3.5 seconds. 750 horsepower. Cost: $1,400,000.
Aston Martin was named the coolest car company in the U.K. It is the brand of choice for James Bond. And what I’m going to say is the One-77 is the coolest Aston Martin. Its style is of excellent workmanship that bleeds cool. The One-77 will do 0-60 in less than 3.5 seconds with top speeds higher than 200 mph. Depending on when you are reading this, the price of the One-77 can be at least $1.4 million.
6. Pagani Huayra
0-60 mph: 3.0 seconds. 700 horsepower. Cost: $1,300,000.
This car lacks all that is old world charm. While it can be a bit too flashy to actually be supercool, it is still a new kind of beauty, with a radical design and awesome performance. This Pagani can hit 0-60 in three seconds, with a top speed of 220. It will be in the market at $1.3 million dollars, not all of us will be able to afford one. Ultimately, its novelty and uniqueness makes it the new kid that everyone wants to meet.
7. Dodge Viper
0-60 mph: 3.4 seconds. 600 horsepower. Cost: $80,000.
A classic American muscle car. This was the car to have if you wanted to be cool. This car was never one that was based on anything else. It is very self-satisfied. It can do 0-60 in 3.4 seconds with a topspeed of 202 mph. What is special about the Viper is that it is never about comfort or luxury. Most cars in its price range around $80,000 cannot compete with it.
8. Chevrolet Corvette
0-60 mph: 4 seconds. 638 horsepower. Cost: $74,000 - $110,000.
Another classic American icon. It is the everyday supercar. In comparison to the Viper, I think the Corvette packs more power and style for the buck. A Corvette will cost anywhere between $74,000 and $110,000.
9. Lamborghini Murcielago
0-60 mph: 3.0 seconds. 661 horsepower. Cost: $360,000 - 455,000.
The flagship supercar of Lamborghini. It is made as the most popular car posters, hung on the walls of many young people. This car was named after a fighting bull that best 28 sword strokes. The beastly name leaves a legacy for this car that makes anyone who owns it supercool. The Murcielago costs between $360,000 and $455,000. It's a bit overplayed and try-hard, hence it sits at #9.
10. Ford Mustang
0-60 mph: 4 seconds. 412 horsepower. Cost: $20,000 - $30,000.
