Maybe you want the fastest car at any price. But even if you focus on the fastest cars for the money, you'll still get plenty of speed. That’s because high levels of horsepower have never been more affordable than they are today. At the same time, automakers have been reducing vehicle weight to improve efficiency. It’s that perfect combination of low-priced horsepower and lowered curb weights that leads to such low 0-60 times — and such high top speeds.
Now, most entries here aren’t cheap. In fact, some have MSRPs that approach six figures. But we did pick some that are more affordable, too, and all 10 deliver an impressive bang for the bucks that you do pay. Just remember that when we were doing the math here, we did leave out one factor that could have a big impact on your bottom line with these fast cars: the cost of speeding tickets.
