This limited edition bright yellow Civic Type R is one example. Only 20 were produced for the UK market, with each one costing roughly $54,000 brand new. However, due to its rarity, a used specimen at a Collecting Cars auction was sold for just under $67,000, according to driving.co.uk.

Jarring Ride

Sports cars are intended to be rigid, with low-profile tyres and suspension systems designed to keep the car flat during high-speed turning. However, this is no longer the true for some models, as some of them now have adaptive dampers.

This technology enables sports cars to be better adapted to various road and driving situations, and it can even be modified on the fly, along with the drivetrain maps, depending on the driver’s preferences.

Terrible Fuel Economy

Because of their powerful engines, sports cars are frequently misunderstood for gas guzzlers. However, the amount of fuel used does not always correlate to the amount of power generated.

Furthermore, hybrid powerplants increasingly help sports cars, as supercars like the Honda NSX, according to Evo magazine, can achieve 28 mpg, which isn’t bad for a 600 horsepower monster.

Here’s a complete myth that many people should disregard. Because the reality is, even the slowest automobile on the road may be dangerous, especially if it’s driven by a complete lunatic.
