Top 10 Fastest Cars Under $100k
No.1 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio – MSRP $72000
Top 10 Fastest Cars Under $100K
After the limited- edition 8C and the limited appeal 4C sports cars Alfa Romeo’s tentative move back to the United States takes on a greater momentum with the giulia compact sedan. The quadrifolio ”four- leaf- it’s an Alfa motorsport thing” is the hot version a rival to the BMW M3 it runs with 505 hp and 443 lb ft of torque from a twin turbocharged 2.9 liter V6 from a standstill the speedo needle scoots around to 60mph within 3.6 seconds. top speed is 191 mph. Admittedly the car is pricey but forget all the troubles that use to plague Italian cars. This one is well put together and ergonomically sound.
No.2 2018 Audi TT RS – MSRP $64,900
If anyone wants a fastest Audi, they’ll have to look at something like the RS7 or R8 , and both cars bust our budget. However all –new-for2018 TT RS makes a more than respectable showing in the sprint to 60mph clocking in at 6.3 seconds. An optional dynamic package sends the top sped from 155mph to 174mph. this is the most powerful TT with 400hp from a turbocharged 2.5- liters engine in an unusual inline 5- cylinder configuration. As well as a speed suspension and breaking system the TT RS comes with Audi’s excellent virtual COCKPIT digital drivers display as standard. It also has a dedicated screen showing tire pressures torque levels and g-forces.
No.3 2018 BMW M4 Competition – MSRP $74,050
There’s no appreciable difference in the performance of the M3 sedan and the closely related M4 coupe. But the quickest of these sub -$100,000 performance machine is the M3/M4 with the competition package —- boosting horsepower in the turbocharged 3.0 liter inline-6 from the regular 425 to 444 the torque of 406 lb – ft stays the same. The 7- speed dual-clutch DCT automated transmission has a launched mood for the effective of the line acceleration. so the MSRP quoted above include both of those extra for M4. BMW claims 3.8 seconds sprint to 60 mph. top speed is limited electronically to 155 mph ; the M driver’s package raises it to 174 mph.
No.4 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera S – MSPR $98,900
The 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera S features an MSRP $98,900 which means it just barely qualifies for our list of the fastest cars under $100k. Opting for the Porsche 911 Carrera S over the base Carrera means benefiting from an adaptive suspensions system as well as gripper 20- inch tires and upgraded breaks. More importantly, it also swaps out the cars 3-4 liter flat 6- for a 3.8 liter, 6 Cylinder mil that generates 400 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. Situated behind the rear wheels. This unit is capable of launching Carrera S to 60 mph in just 309 seconds. The Porsche can be had with either a traditional 7- speed manual or a transmission 7- automated manual gearbox.
No.5 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – MSRP $85,000
This limited version of the Challenger can make a ridiculous 480 hp and 770 lb-ft of torque from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8. Dodge has quoted a record-breaking zero to 60 mph time of 2.3 seconds and a quarter mile run of 9.65 seconds hitting 140 mph. that’s ballistic. The world’s fastest for a production car, in fact sadly, only 3,000 examples will be made. So most of us will have to settle for the 707-hp Challenger SRT hellcat, which saunters to 60 mph in a leisurely 306 seconds, quarter miles in 11.7 seconds at 126 mph and reaches terminal velocity at 190 mph, all for a mare $65,490 (with the automatic transmission, which enables the quicker sprint).
No.6 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 – MSRP $56,145
This Shelby ized Mustang does the sprint to 60 mph in a highly respectable 4.3 seconds , thanks to a 5.2 liters V8 generating 526 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. It also runs a quarter mile in 12.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 175 mph. this much speed and handling talent for the price is bordering on responsible. And make a move now since it may not be in existence past 2018. We also feel compelled to give an honorable mention to the all-wheel drive 2017 FORD FOCUS RS hatchback which pack 350 hp in to a compact hatchback , is only 0.3 of a second slower to 60 mph , and has an MSRP $36,120.
No.7 2017 Lexus RC F – MSRP $64,165
It’s a modern machine but the RC F has old school muscle car approach with a naturally aspirated 5.0- liter V8 driving the rear wheel. When 467 hp and 489 lb-ft of torque are working together , this premium compact coupe rushes from standstill to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and maxes out at 170 mph. in between, it needs only 12.5 seconds to cover the quarter mile. Admittedly this is the slowest of our 10 fastest cars under $100,000 althouth not by much. It’s also a least expensive , but it’s still a Lexus. So we know that all those advanced electronic system ——- making this a virtually idiot proof high performance car will work solidly and reliably.
No.8 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe-MARP $75,000
There’s the C claas 63 S. the later has more power 503 hp and 516 lb-ft pf torque , emanating from a hand built twin turbocharged 4.0 liter V8. Regarding our zero to 60 mph benchmark the C63 S Coupe handles it in 3.8 seconds ( the slightly less expensive sedan equivalent does it in 3.9 ) , then hits a top speed of 180 mph . This engine is virtually the same unit found in the Mercedes AMG GT Sports cars , which starts at $111,200. The C63 also has dynamic engine mounts , providing more comfort when going slowly and greater precision when driving fast . It’s those little crucial details as well as the big hardware that make the car so special.
No.9 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S – MSRP $73,340
The quickest 911 models are safely in the six figure range. But the new generation 2017 2018 Cayman S is an absolute joy to drive and has easily enough power for public roads (350 hp), while also being pretty handy on a track. not spending 911 money also leave some leeway for option, which are expensive. The combination of the 7- speed PDK automated transmission and the Sport Chrono package means a faster sprint to 60 mph by nearly half a second (thanks to a launch mode) as well as slightly better fuel consumption. So we have included those extras in a price. The upshot is four seconds flat from standstill to 60 mph and a top speed of 177 mph.
No.10 2017 Tesla Model S 90D – MSRP $87,500
This is an all-electric , high tech Luxury Car with a range of around 260 miles. The thing about electric motors is that they have almost instantaneous torque , the ability to access maximum thrust right from the get-go. All wheel drive (denoted by the D Suffix , indicating duel models) means even more chance of putting all that push to the pavement as efficiently as possible. So even though the 90D is not the fastest model S , it can still sprint in to 60 mph is just 4.2 seconds. The price quoted above by the way, is before any state or federal rebates. A 100 D might sneak in under our $100,000 limit, but this choice allows some wiggle rooms for options.
