5 Manly Cars All Guys Dream Of Owning

Most guys are into cars, and there is no doubt about that fact!

I am probably one of the biggest car nuts you will ever meet, and there are millions of other guys out there just like me!

I have driven and owned all sorts of weird and wonderful cars over the years, and every car enthusiast will have a definitive top five list of cars that they would like to own some day. Here is my own top 5 list – enjoy!

5. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

AMG’s first car to be fully designed in-house, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a grand tourer that is notable for its unique gull-wing doors.

It has been in production since 2010, but sadly this model has now been discontinued, with its successor boasting a lower purchase price and standard doors rather than the gull-wing ones currently used.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has a 563 brake horsepower 6.2-litre V8 engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds.

4. Lamborghini Aventador

The successor to the ever-popular Lamborghini Murciélago is the Aventador. Produced from 2011 onwards, this Italian stallion is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine. Boasting 690 brake horsepower, you can reach 60 mph from a standing start in just 2.9 seconds!

Production of that particular model is limited to just 4,000 units.

3. Range Rover Sport

Let’s face it; there are times in a guy’s life where the supercars need to stay in the garage, and a practical family-friendly vehicle needs to be used instead. This is where the Range Rover Sport comes in.

This British born and bred vehicle has been in production since 2005 and is currently in its second generation. According to Hunters Land Rover, King’s Lynn, when the second generation was unveiled in Manhattan, New York, several streets had to be closed for its debut by one Daniel Craig!

2. Audi R8

I love driving coupe cars, and have owned a few of them myself. But, for me, one coupe that tops them all is, without a shadow of a doubt, the Audi R8.

The German car manufacturer has built more than 50,000 models since 2007 and they are available for purchase in a number of different engine configurations, ranging from a 4.2-litre V8 to a 5.2-litre V10.

There is even an electric version, the “e-tron,” although it’s just a concept at this stage until the price of electric motor and battery technology decreases significantly.

1. Chevrolet Camaro

What manly car list could ever be complete without a bit of American muscle in it! The Chevrolet Camaro is an iconic muscle car that has been in production since 1966 and is currently in its fifth generation (see the photograph above).

Every time I watch an episode of the “new” Hawaii Five-0 and I see Danno driving his Chevy Camaro, I get jealous because I wished I had a Camaro parked on my driveway outside!
