Budget performance cars are a critical part of the mod life. They’re an affordable option for young enthusiasts just entering the market—and many times, drivers develop lifetime allegiances to the makes or models that they start with. Luckily for you, many automakers are focusing on affordable performance in 2015. So Revvolution decided to put together a list of this model year’s fastest entry-level performance cars. The criteria were simple: under $35,000, over 200 horsepower, zero to 60 times under 6 seconds and quarter-mile times under 14 seconds.
Now that 2015 is here, some of those machines are more than 10 years old. Which means that we no longer have to buy new to score one helluva performance bargain! So we dug through the archives and came up with the 9 best used performance cars that can be bought for under 30 grand.
Mike K has been putting out some pretty fantastic automotive content on Youtube for some time now, and we thought this latest video was particularly well done.
For English Racing, this pursuit of perfection has been an ongoing creed for their high performance shop in the Pacific Northwest. The Evo 8, is but one example of the results that can be achieved when a shop hones their craft to the highest level. English Racing seems set on making it clear that they too can be included in the circle of craftsmen who pursue perfection to the point of creating works of art. Make no mistake, the crew at English are craftsmen, capable of fabricating anything you can imagine, and doing it with the level of detail that creates genuinely beautiful pieces.
This Leaselocatorsracing.com Evo 8 dyno clip is a quick preview of the in depth feature that Revvolution.com will bring to you early this week. It’s also a not so subtle reminder that no matter how bad you think your ride is, there are unassuming, thousand-horsepower sleepers out there that will happily half-throttle your simple behind into the rear view.
