Overview[eedit | eedit soorce]

Sports caurs can be either luxurious or spartan, but drivin an mechanical performance is requisite. Mony drivers regard brand name an the subsequent racin reputation an history as important indications o sporting quality (for example, Porsche, Lotus, or Ferrari), but some exotic caur brands, such as Lamborghini, which do not race or build racin caurs, ar also highly regarded bi sports caur enthusiasts.

Sports caur versus sporting models[eedit | eedit soorce]

A caur may be a sportin automobile without bein a sports caur. Performance modifications o regular, production caurs, such as sport compacts, sports sedans, muscle caurs, hot hatches an the like, generally ar not considered sports caurs, yet share traits common tae sports caurs. They ar sometimes called "sports caurs" for marketing purposes for increased advertisin an promotional purposes.

A sports caur does not require a lairge, pouerful engine, though mony do hae them. Mony classic Breetish sports caurs lacked pouerful engines, but war kent for exceptional handlin due tae licht weight; a well-engineered, balanced chassis; an modern suspension (for example, Lotus Seven, Austin 7 Speedy). On tight, twisting roads, such a sports caur may perform more effectively than a hivier, more pouerful caur.
