If you saw the Renovo Coupe driving down the streets, or perhaps more likely on the track, you couldn't be faulted for thinking you'd just seen a Shelby Daytona Coupe. Save for one thing: the distinctive roar of an American V8 engine — because the Renovo is driven by twin electric sequential motors producing 500 horsepower and an astounding 1,000 pound-feet of torque. All that power is available from a dead stop, letting this monster (silently) scream up to 60 miles per hour in just 3.4 seconds. While you might miss the sound, you certainly won't be found wanting for speed.
Get all of the class of the S-Class with all the sportiness of a two-door with the Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Coupe. Powered by a 6.0L, biturbo V12 engine pushing out 621hp, the S65 can jet from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.1 seconds and is limited to a top speed of 186. Other features including a Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic transmission sending power to the 20-inch forged rear wheels, Active Body Control (ABC), optional ceramic brakes, and all the interior refinements you'd expect from a top-of-the-line Mercedes, including a heads-up display, a large infotainment screen, a three-spoke steering wheel, and luxurious Nappa leather.
The future is still bright for those looking to drive a seriously-powerful American-made muscle car off the lot — and the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is just the car for them. Billed as the most powerful Chrysler engine made to date, this supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 produces over 600 horsepower, making it a highly-capable track car. All this power goes through either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic. Multiple drive modes let you customize the ride and horsepower depending on whether you're headed to the track or just driving to work, while Brembo brakes and forged-aluminum wheels help improve the driving experience.
