1. Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Roadster
Hot and fast on the heels of the Superveloce coupe, this Superveloce roadster is the first of its kind, and what a first it is. The Aventador Roadster debuted at Monterey Car Week, and ever since then we’ve been stealing glances at our calendars, waiting for its early 2016 release. We anticipate a heady adrenaline rush: the LP 750-4 is charged with 740 horsepower and accelerates to 62 MPH in just 2.9 seconds. Accelerate for long enough and you’ll be blistering down the track at its maximum speed of 217 miles per hour. Only 500 of these powerhouses will be released.
2. Lotus Exige 360 Cup
We can’t stop thinking about the unbelievably curvy and ultra-maneuverable Lotus Exige 360 Cup, destined to be one of the premier sports cars of the year. The 360 Cup was built to trump the Exige V6 Cup, a fine model in its own right, and it succeeds. Lotus will release only fifty Exige 360s, which have some pretty sexy stats: a 3.5-liter V6 engine, 360 metric horsepower, a maximum speed of 170 miles per hour and an acceleration rate of zero to 60 in 3.8 seconds. Plus, the lightweight aluminum body clocks it in at just 2,500 pounds. Start planning your weekends at the racetrack.
3. Ferrari 488 Spider Convertible
Robb Report raved about the 488 Spider, and we couldn’t agree more with their assessment. Praised as a “masterpiece” and “enlightened,” the 488 Spider boasts one of Ferrari’s most powerful engines (a 3.9 liter V8) and accelerates to its top speed of 124 miles per hour in 8.7 seconds. This aerodynamic soft top makes its debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show this fall and will be released by mid-2016. Until then, we’ll see it in our dreams.
Do these hotly anticipated models make you crave a turn around the track or two? We know it’s near impossible to wait for any of these beautiful luxury cars. In the meantime, we have an extensive selection of sports car rentals in Philadelphia that you can make your own for a weeklong vacation or weekend getaway.
