12 Performance Edition Sports Cars Equally Great on Track and on the Road

Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0

We were literally spoiled for choice when it came to selecting which Porsche would take a proud position on our top 12 track cars. Without exaggeration, Porsche could have dominated the list, easily meriting as many as 50% of the 12 titles. Ultimately, the GT3 RS 4.0 came out on top. After all, this was the top performing car of the Porsche 977 era. Highly rare and desirable, as few as 600 of this sacred 911 were produced. With the powerful Porsche GT3 specific track engine, a breathtakingly high 8500 rpm is possible.

Furthermore, despite the absence of a turbo-charged engine, an incredible power of up to 493 hp is generated. The GT3 RS 4.0 shares similar chassis tuning to the GT3 RS, which is sensible given its track performance. With a price-tag of $185,000, you are absolutely getting your money’s worth. Owners are able to opt for the easy installation of a media device and air-conditioning function if their priority is not low weight and fast pace. Porsche has delivered yet another 911 track edition sports car that delivers race results and exciting experiences.

Mitsubishi Evolution RS

Due to its reputation of providing a brilliant and breath-taking driving experience along with its exceptional consistency, the Mitsubishi Evolution RS is considered to be an all-time racetrack favourite. Built intentionally as a rally car and renowned for its remarkable performance on the most challenging of terrain, you may be wondering why the 2004 – 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution RS has earned a place on our list of top racetrack cars. With its outstanding track-tested suspension, this car confirms its worth on our list. There is also the immense power this machine provides of up to 271 hp, thanks to the inclusion of its four-cylinder, turbo engine. The Evolution RS vehicle from Mitsubishi sports a superbly smart all-wheel drive system which further enhances its performance abilities.

Admittedly, the addition of the RS package lacks the wow-factor in terms of performance, however, it removes a 234 lb load from the overall weight. Now that is one way to guarantee enhanced performance! This hefty weight is successfully shifted with the RS package removal of the vehicle’s back wing, its ABS, the air conditioning system, and the equipment that reduces noise while driving. These are all purely added for comfort and are therefore unessential. The now much lighter creation has an awesome ability of reaching 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds. With the Mitsubishi Evolution RS you effectively are given a blank canvas that allows track performance enhancing adaptions to be personally selected.
