5 Best Super Touring Cars
The 5 best super touring cars look like ordinary, regular production cars, but they usually have modifications made to their wheel bases to accommodate the special racing tires inside the usually normal wheel arches. Super touring cars are, also, usually required to be at least 13.8 feet in length, which breaks down to basically the average length of a small family sedan with four doors.
- 1996 Nissan Primera. Built by Nissan Motorsport Europe, the 1996 Nissan Primera makes the number one spot because this super touring car has so much experience racing competitively. It raced in the 1996 Belgium Procar Championship, the All Japan Touring Car Championship, the 1999 Swedish Touring Car Championship and the 2009 BRSCC LMA Euro Saloon and Sports Car Championship. Back in the day, this car used to barrel down the racetrack, leaving drivers eating its dust.
- 2000 Ford Mondeo. Featuring front-wheel drive and a PR-ST/F-0004 chassis, the Ford Mondeo has been tearing up the super touring car racetrack since 2000. It makes the number two spot because under drivers Rickard Rydell and Bernard Hogarth, this super touring car has come so close to winning the British Touring Car Championship and the David Leslie Memorial Trophy.
- 1997 Vauxhall Vectra. The 1997 Vauxhall Vectra has had a number of drivers over its two decade history. It makes the number three spot due to its consistent, high finishes in the British Touring Car Championship, the BRSCC LMA Euro Saloon Car Championship and the 2009 David Leslie Memorial Trophy.
- 1998 Alfa Romeo. The 1998 Alfa Romeo takes no prisoners as it races down the racetrack, burning rubber and the competition up the whole day long. Built by Nordauto, this super touring car originally came to prominence when it was used by Fabrizio Giovanardi in the 1998 Italian Super Touring Championship.
- 1996 Audi A4. This super touring car is unique in that it is only one of a few such cars that have 4-wheel drive. The 1996 Audi A4 was recently bought by Austrian champion racer Andreas Marko for use in upcoming races. This super touring car will be making its debut in the Austrian Hillclimb Championship in September.
