What better way to start a Monday morning than taking a peek at some of the hottest, sexiest, and coolest cars on the planet? Lucky for us, many of them are gathered at the Geneva Motor Show for the remainder of this week.
Of course, in any gathering of the world’s automobiles, there’s bound to be an ugly one in the bunch, too.
Fair warning: There is a 561-horsepower Lamborghini on this list… think it’s the ugly one?
2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera
Oh… this would be fun: 561 horsepower from Lambo’s 5.2-liter V10 in a car that weighs less than a Porsche Boxster. Seriously. And so not ugly!
2011 Audi RS5
There’s no guarantee that this sweet-looking coupe will come to the States, but maybe if we all wish at the same time….
Here’s why you’d want it here: It’s got a 450-horsepower version of Audi’s 4.2-liter V8 paired with Quattro AWD and killer good looks.
2012 Volkswagen Polo GTI
I think the GTI is one of the most fun and economical cars on the market today. The Polo GTI, if it comes to America, would only add more fun to the party. In the Euro version, it packs a 178-horsepower turbocharged and supercharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder putting out 184 pound-feet of torque. That’s dang close to the GTI, and the Polo weighs a few hundred pounds less.
2011 Lotus Elise
The Elise got a nose job! That’s the only major change to it, but combined with better fuel economy and an available supercharged four-cylinder, it’s enough to keep me in love.
2011 Alfa Romeo Giulietta
I’ll keep this simple: I’d drive this car even if it was badged as a Chrysler.
And finally, the one ugly car:
2011 Nissan Juke
I don’t know what to say, other than hmmm….
Depending on how big a lottery I won, I’d get either the Lamborghini or the Audi. What about you?
