Rapid Transit, Sedan Style

In recent years, automakers have been upping the ante when it comes to fast sedans. They now offer models that deliver speed, and lots of it, along with room for the family. These hot sedans also have another advantage: Avoid the flaming orange paint option and most will blend inconspicuously into traffic. The vast majority of your fellow motorists will have no idea of your car’s performance potential. Having a low profile can be advantageous.

The following slides highlight 25 really fast sedans, as measured in zero-to-60 mile per hour acceleration tests. The good news is that, despite their performance, every one of these sedans is actually docile and easy to drive around town. However, when you mash your foot to the floor, these cars will pin you to the back of your seat.

Granted, these models can be expensive. Some, however, are within reach of many buyers. Take a look to see if one of these sedans might tempt you to redefine what rapid transit means for your family.
