2018 Mini John Cooper Works Hardtop

The Mini Cooper has been one of those iconic cars for five decades. But unless you’ve had the opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat, you have no idea what the Mini is all about. The 2018 Mini John Cooper Works Hardtop is the culmination of all the fun stuff a Mini can throw at you.


It’s a car that sits low to the ground and has sport-tuned suspension. The Mini John Cooper Works Hardtop is super nimble and brakes really well too. It spits out 228 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque from a BMW-inspired turbocharged engine. For a tiny car like this, accelerating from 0 to 60mph in 5.9 seconds is impressive and will certainly draw a smile on your face.

2018 Ford Mustang GT

You know the old saying: “There’s no replacement for displacement.” The Mustang GT clings to this mentality, even as competition nips at its heels. The all-too-familiar 5.0-liter moniker still exists, making more power than it ever has at 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. It’s a sub-four-second car as it accelerates from 0 to 60mph, but that’s not all that makes it fun.

Any true car guy knows the first thing that makes him weak in the knees. It’s the exhaust note of a big V8. That’s one of the most important features for the 2018 Mustang GT, it can make an old man giddy with joy as he tweaks the throttle driving by a group of teenagers.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

For those who truly enjoy the feel of being terrified, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will take you there in a split second. No one in their right mind ever expected a mainstream car company to release a car that was so powerful, so fast, so over the top that it would be banned by the NHRA.


This is the car you want to drive if you love going fast in a straight line. It gets up to 140 mph in a quarter mile, and in just 9.65 seconds. It has 840 horsepower and 770 lb-ft of torque from its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8. Zero to 60 happens in 2.3 seconds. But don’t try to take it around a track – it’s built for speed, not agility.
