2017 Sports Cars That Rock

Many people just love a good sports car. If you’re one of them, you’ll love this list with the best 2017 sports cars:

#1: Aston-Martin DB11

When you think about Aston-Martin, you immediately think about James Bond. The Aston-Martin DB11 was seen for the first time during the Geneva Motor Show in March this year and immediately got the applause of many people.

There has been more than a decade ever since Aston-Martin had a mass-production.

The Aston-Martin DB11 is one of the best 2017 sports cars. The DB versions aren’t new to Aston-Martin. After all, there has been the DB9 back in 2003, and this one was to replace the previous DB7.

It might sound strange that there’s no DB10 (in fact, the DB10 was the one used by James Bond in the last movie), but this is to make sure that the car will be so different that they just have to skip a number.

The Aston-Martin DB11 has a new aluminum platform as well as a new design, and a new turbocharged V12 engine. The interior of this car is just amazing as well. It just feels there’s a lot more room inside, both on the front as well as on the back.

Despite the exterior design may not be liked by everyone, there’s no question that this is a 2017 sports car that will definitely rock. It’s much more practical, faster, and the refinement and technology are all up to date.

#2: Lexus LC 500

It’s normal to make a list with all the best cars that are coming next year, similar to this one we’re doing right now. And when it comes to sports cars, we just can’t even remember about the last time we saw a Toyota or a Lexus in one of them.

Times are changing and Toyota believes it’s time to build exciting cars as well. And the new Lexus LC 500 is one perfect example.

Lexus LC 500

The Lexus LC 500 was firstly introduced in January 2016. The engineers had a lot to deal with when they were manufacturing this car. Two of their main goals was to make sure that the center of gravity was lower and to reduce the overall weight of the car. They managed to do both by using aluminum and carbon-fiber, two amazing materials. Despite their efforts, the Lexus LC 500 still is slightly heavier than its competitors. However, they did an amazing job.

When you’re driving this 2017 sports car, you’ll almost feel that it is alive. And this happens with the hybrid version as well. In fact, Lexus made a strong bet and tried to make the hybrid car as similar as they could to the conventional car. Although the conventional car uses the same 5.0-liter V-8 engine that’s in the GS F and the RC F, leveraging the LC500’s up a few horsepower, to 471, the hybrid version has less 117 horsepower. And if there is also another difference between the two versions of the car, that is the sound. The sound of the V-8 engine is absolutely perfect. On the contrary, the sound of the hybrid version seems a little artificial.

Lexus expect to have the LC 500 for sale in March 2017.

#3: 2017 Ferrari GTC4Lusso

When we talk about the 2017 sports cars, we couldn’t leave Ferrari out of the list.

The Ferrari GTC4Lusso has 4 seats and was unveiled during the Geneva Motor Show in February 2016. Powered with a V12 engine. this Ferrari is the evolution of the old FF.

The exterior design is a bit different than what you usually see on the Ferrari. They redesigned the bumper that includes the large splitter, the headlights have a boomerang shape, and the grille is bigger and it includes 3 long slats. On the rear, you’ll also see some differences. They placed two additional tail lamps, a bigger air diffuser, and the spoiler is more prominent.

One of the things that usually concerns most people who like a good Ferrari is the interior. And we can say they did a pretty good job in the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. The materials quality has clearly improved, the steering wheel is a bit smaller, the center stack includes a 10.2-inch touchscreen, where the new infotainment system will display.

The Ferrari GTC4Lusso comes with a 6.3-liter V12 engine that delivers 680 horsepower and 515 pound-feet of torque.

When you want to use one of the best 2017 sports cars on a regular basis, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso is definitely a good bet.

#4: 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR

The new 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR was also released during the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016.

The 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR comes with a powerful 5.0-liter V-8 engine that has 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. This slight increase is due to the new hood vents and intercoolers that allow the freer to breathe better.

One of the new features that the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR includes is the exhaust. And just because of this, the weight of the car was reduced by 55 pounds.

But the new 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR is not only about its amazing exterior design or its powerful engine. You also need to look at the interior and to what they improved. From the diamond-stiched seats to the shift paddles that are now in aluminum instead of plastic, there are a lot of small details that you’ll love.
