It’s safe to say that car racing is as old as cars. People have always had a thing for racing. Before cars it was horses and before that it was on foot. The first car race ever took place on Thanksgiving day in 1895. The cars started in Chicago and finished in Evanston, IL.
Today, motorsports are a huge thing in the world and races are being held every single day, both on track and on the streets. Before we look at powerful street cars, we just have to remind you that you don’t race them on the streets because it’s just not safe and you’ll be putting yourself and others in danger. With that said, let’s see what the best street racing cars are.
BMW M3 2015
Touring cars are special super-powerful cars that can be driven on the streets and the race track the same. The BMW M3 series is around for over 30 years and these cars are known for their high-performance and plenty of torque.
The M3 is on the top of the sports car list ever since it hit the market and the 2015 model is the best one yet. The car looks mean, it packs plenty of HP and it dives into every corner with ease. Bring it to the track and leave the others in a cloud of dust.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2014
When we talk about car racing, the Corvette is definitely one of the models you could see in every event for the last 40 years. This automotive wonder is made in the US and, just like other US cars, it packs a huge motor and over 500 HP under the hood. Yes, this car can be registered and driven on the streets, but make sure you turn the Sports Drive option off and use it only on racing tracks. The 2014 Stingray is one of the most powerful and best-looking streetcars ever.
Chevrolet SS 2014
The Chevrolet SS fits right into the category with Touring Cars. It’s the American answer to the BMW 3 Series, and it’s a car that wins professional racing events worldwide. The massive V8 engine produces up to 415 HP and plenty of torque. The car reaches 60 MPH in less than 5 seconds, which is more than impressive if you ask us.
Ford Fiesta ST 2014
The Ford Fiesta is one of the most popular hatchbacks in the world. It’s a compact car that brings a nice balance between performance and comfort. The Ford Fiesta ST is a buffed up Fiesta that’s ready for the track right away. Even Ken Block drove a Fiesta ST in his legendary Gymkhana videos on YT. The car is also a popular pick for many off-road rally drivers because of its great suspension and brake systems.
Mazda Miata MX-5
The Miata series first hit the market in the early 90’s. The car is famous because it’s made by real car racing enthusiasts in Japan. It’s made to be as small and light as possible, which improves its performance. The car is a coupe, it has only two seats and it’s really small. It may look like a toy, but press the gas pedal and you’ll stick to the seat instantly.
