Automotive obsession is inbred in men. After all, car has always been a masculine space, isn’t it? Possibly this is what explains a man’s fierce obsession for his machine. Can you tell a single guy who doesn’t dream about parading around in a red-hot Ferrari or a snazzy looking Aston Martin or a pretty Porsche or a flashy Lexus for that matter? There are no limits to a man’s automotive fancies. Up ahead are the five most electrifying high-end machines that every man would like to have parked in his garage.
For The Showman: Lexus IS 300
The IS 300 is all about style and sophistication! It drives like a dream, feels like a dream and is indeed a true driver’s dream. But mind you, it can be quite a brute with its 215-hp. Armed with Formula One style shifting, snazzy chronograph-style instrumentation, flashy 17-inch chrome rims, superior handling and braking, efficient ergonomics and a noiseless engine, this car is definitely a delight to cruise around in.
For The Dreamer: Ferrari 360 Spider
It goes without saying that Ferrari is the hottest car in every man’s wish list. After all, it’s the most sought after, highest performing machine on the road. The 360 Spider with its exotic curves, stiffer shaft, crisp handling, top-class braking, heavy-duty leather coated tubing is good enough to make any man fall in love with it.
For The Family Guy: Volvo V70 XC
This wannabe SUV is the ultimate wagon for the fashionable family man. This sporty, outdoorsy, rugged-looking Volvo is ideal for off-roading, country cruising or highway dashing — depending on what you plan to do over a weekend. Plus, the all-wheel drive TRACS system means that you won’t get stranded in snow bank too. Last, but not the least, the top-notch safety features just ensure that your family is safe, no matter where you go.
For The Alpha Male: Panoz Esperante
If you adore burly cars with low set driving position that gives you the pleasure of driving a race car, this one’s your pick. This mean machine packs in plenty of horsepower with oodles of oomph which makes it just perfect for any car enthusiast. The handling is sharp and curves like a dream, even in astonishingly high speeds.
For The Collector: Qvale Mangusta
Love the rare and the exotic? Then Qvale Mangusta is your mean machine. This limited production car bears a bone-stock Ford SVT Mustang Cobra under its hood. Designed by Marcello Gandini, the renowned Italian car designer, this muscle car is all you need to sweep off a lady off her feet and fan your driver’s instincts.
