Italian Sports Cars: 10 Best
The ten best Italian sports cars all look the part of a traditional sports car: hot, fast and super-cool. These sports cars will get people to turn their heads should you cruise down the street riding in one of them.
1974 Alfa 1750/2000. Sure to appear on the list of classic Italian sports cars, this 1974 Alfa is a Pininfarina designed vehicle that is a blast do drive. It comes in a direct-action, five-speed gearbox.
1966 Alfa Giulia Spider Veloce. This Italian sports car featured 129 horsepower of fury as well as sweet handling and that oh-so-classic shape that has come to define sports cars for years to come. The price is not too bad either; it's about that of a new Mustang.
- 1979 Ferrari 308 GT4. This Ferrari is one heck of a ride. Although it comes with four seats instead of the traditional two for Ferraris, it still can impress. It features affordability and an entry-level way of getting into the Ferrari lifestyle.
- 2004 Ferrari 360 Modena. This Ferrari has the classical, Ferrari shape. It will turn heads and includes a 400 horsepower engine. A complete overkill, but it does not matter when you look this sharp riding in one.
- 1974 Pantera. Designed by Tom Tjaarda and possessing a forceful, Ford 351 Cleveland engine, the Pantera is a great Italian sports car. It is thought of as the Italian sports car alternative to the Corvette.
- 1976 Lancia Fulve Coupe. This Italian sports car is the one that has a racing pedigree under its belt. It is, in general, a swell-handling car and one that is enjoyable to drive.
- 1972 Intermeccanica Italia. This coupe and convertible features a Ford 302 V8. It is a hybrid of sorts in that it is a true, Italian muscle-car, yet it comes in a smooth and trim package.
- 1972 Fiat Dino Spider. This Italian sports car was assembled by Ferrari despite being marketed as a Fiat car. Nonetheless, later models especially had better gearboxes and more horsepower. It is recommended that you regularly service this car as Ferrari models require this in particular.
- 2010 Maserati GranTurismo S. This Italian sports car is the true blend between speed and luxury. Enabling the driver to reach 100 kilometers per hour in just under five seconds, this Maserati gets to a top speed of 295 kilometers per hour.
- 2010 Maserati GranCabrio. The 2010 Maserati GranCabrio comes with an eight cylinder, 4691cc engine. This Italian sports car's engine, though powerful, is surprisingly quiet thanks to smooth gear switches in its design.
