Supercar Performance for Luxury Car Prices

Cheap horsepower is, to some, the American dream. Some of America’s most iconic cars built their reputations on that idea, and perhaps the most trenchant lesson of the muscle-car era is that giving ordinary cars extraordinary amounts of power is an effective way of drawing attention and moving units.

It’s been more than 40 years since the muscle car era breathed its last choking gasps, but the auto industry is once again engaged in something resembling the horsepower wars of the 1960s. Chevrolet and Dodge both offer multiple cars with more than 600 horsepower, and Ford, Cadillac, Jaguar, and even Lexus aren’t too far behind.

With unlimited cash, you can acquire almost unlimited amounts of horsepower. But even if your budget is $100,000 or less (a lot less, in some cases), you can find plenty of cars with enough power to smoke the supercars of the not-so-distant past.
