What autos do you imagine when it comes to sports cars? Ferrari, Lamborghini and other popular car producing brands are considered to have no rivals in this segment. It would be so unless most popular German automakers entered this market. Major brands introduce their fast and at the same time elegant vehicles which are able to compete with other companies specializing in manufacturing sports autos.
It was rather hard for us to narrow the list of top German sports cars to only 10 units. This is why we have chosen the best ones. Here they are.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
This model is not only one of the fastest German cars; it is also the rarest one. SLS AMG is powered by 6.2-liter AMG V8 engine with 635 HP. It combines both power and luxury with its unique style and allows for he maximum speed of 197 mph. The motor makes it possible to get from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG also comes along with stylish design and interior which is a must for all cars produced by this popular German brand. That is why this model takes the first position in our rating.
Second place goes to the BMW M3. This model is associated with popular coupes which can be found all over the world. However, starting from 2014 BMW brand decided to change the strategy and focus on producing M3 sedans only. There is no reason for disappointment. The car still has powerful 4.0-liter V8 engine with 414 hp. Such specifications are more than enough to gain 60 mph speed in 4.6 seconds providing driver with smooth performance on the most complicated spots of the track. At the same time the price is also rather attractive and it makes this model a real bargain. The 2 extra doors do not influence the performance of BMW M3. The new model will be equipped with a more powerful biturbo engine producing 431 hp for more speed.
If you think that sedans can have nothing in common with sports cars, then you have never seen a BMW M5 in action. This is not an ordinary sports auto. It is probably the best sports sedan in the world. Ever. The main feature of M5 is the fact that it represents a perfect combination of roomy cabin, stylish interior and design and great power characteristics. More over tis car comes with luxury ambient. Current models are traditionally equipped with a 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo motor producing 560 HP. The 7-speed dual-clutch auto/manual transmission in combination with rear-wheel drive results in outstanding performance. Source: BMW.com.
The Audi R8 is one of the most popular German sports cars. It is a known fact that this model is produced on the base of Lamborghini Gallardo. Nevertheless, it has a unique German style with a recognizable logo. Audi engineers have made several rather important changes over the last few years. These innovations are mostly connected with the performance of the auto. They replaced the old V8 engine with a new V10 motor producing 525 HP. At the same time the maximum speed rate has also been ceased from 187 mph. The car represents elegance and power at the same time.
