Hot New Sports Cars



Motor Trend has published its list of new sports cars, and the roster is pretty thrilling. From the familiar to the unique, the new cars cover a range wide enough to suit any taste and almost any budget. Here, we hit a few highlights.

  • At the high end of the price range, Ferrari and Lamborghini offer exotic good looks, as well as performance and efficiency. If your auto budget exceeds $300,000, consider the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. With a 6.5-liter V12 engine and sleek, aerodynamic styling, the Aventador gets 17 miles per gallon on the highway.
  • If you want to spend a little less, but still feel like James Bond, Aston Martin has several options.  For just over two hundred thousand dollars, the 2012 Aston Martin Virage comes in both coupe and convertible, stylish and sleek, with an average of 18 mpg on the highway.
  • The 2012 Porsche 911 offers excitement and luxury, the antidote to the dull drive. With a price tag of about half the Aston Martin, the 911 gets 26 mpg on the highway, and is available in convertible and coupe.
  • Lower on the price scale, but higher in unique style, the Lotus Exige offers a thrill—to those who can fit inside it! This small but exotic model has thrilling good looks, a $65,000 price tag, and gets 26 mpg on the highway.
  • The Audi S5 offers a smooth and quiet ride. With sleek styling and a supercharged turbo engine, this model offers powerful open-top fun.
  • Coming down from the luxury prices is the newly redesigned Volkswagen EOS. A unique hardtop convertible with a completely functioning power tilt, a slide sunroof and a comfortable leatherette interior, the EOS offers sporty style at 30 mpg on the highway for just under $40,000.
  • The GTI is another great offering from Volkswagen. Offering 31 mpg on the highway and priced under $25,000, the GTI has the distinction of offering cargo space to go with its sporty sensibilities.
  • The perfect combination of the familiar and the sporty, the Beetle is a true classic. Fun to drive, and reasonably priced, the 2012 Beetle is sleeker and sportier than ever.

The Sporty and Fun 2012 VW Eos is the Perfect Summer Car

2012 VW EosThe warm months of the year traditionally are the most popular time to make a new car purchase.  If you are in the market for a fun, sporty car for summer, consider the 2012 VW Eos.  In Greek mythology, Eos is the goddess of the sunrise, and she lends her name appropriately to this retractable hardtop convertible.  This is the perfect summer car, but it is designed for comfortable, secure driving all year-round as well.

Convertibles with fixed roofs were once reserved exclusively for luxury cars and came with luxury price tags.  Volkswagen has changed the status quo by offering the 2012 Eos at a starting price of only $30,000.  This four-seat coupe features all the comfort you would expect from an upper-class, closed-roof vehicle, such as a sunroof and heated rear window. Don’t forget, though, you also have the option to ride with the top down.  In only 25 seconds, this vehicle changes into an open-air convertibleso you can enjoy beautiful summer days without restraint.

The engine in the 2012 VW Eos is a 2.0-liter turbo-charged four-cylinder engine capable of producing 200 horsepower.  The standard companion to this engine is a six-speed manual transmission.  Another option is to choose the six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox, or DSG, to enjoy driving with the benefits of a manual transmission but without a clutch.

Many add-on features enable you to make the most of your new 2012 Eos.  At the base comfort level, drivers enjoy a power driver’s seat, heated driver and passenger seats, dual-zone climate controls, and Bluetooth compatibility.  The next level up, called the Lux model, increases the wheel size to 17 inches, adds a wood interior trim, features leather upholstery, and includes a power front passenger seat.  You can also add a navigation system to the dashboard (complete with USB port and SD card slot), a premium sound system, and sport suspension.

Enjoy all of these features and more from the VW Eos.  Discover more details from Lewisville VW by following Tweets on Twitter“Like” Lewisville VW on Facebook to benefit from updates and receive discounts on future visits to the dealership.
