Top 10 Sexiest Cars : NORTH AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW

What is sexy? Aside from the salaciously suggestive connotation, the term simply refers to something that arouses the senses, or is attractive or appealing to look at. Well, the cars listed here are truly sexy. They aroused the crowds at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, and help bring a little joy to an otherwise somber affair. Enough with the poetic prose — here are the ten sexiest vehicles from Detroit as chosen by the editors of MSN Autos. All of these slick, powerful beasts made us tingle in very shameful ways, and made us wish we had a bigger driveway.


Though it won’t be available in the United States, this 650-horsepower, 217.5-mile-per-hour open-top roadster will be one of the world’s most exclusive supercars. Production of the SLR McLaren on which it is based will end in May, making the Stirling Moss edition one final variant to outdo all the others. Only 75 will be built, and only current SLR owners will be considered for the privilege of plunking down 750,000 euros (that’s over a million bucks) to purchase one. 

While not your typical family car, the Quattroporte is, in fact, Maserati’s entry in the family car segment. Now, the Italian automaker is upping the va-va-voom factor with performance and styling enhancements sure to appeal to style-conscious parents looking for the ultimate Italian four-door to stand out from the gaggle of Bimmers and Benzos at the local PTA meeting. The engine in the Sport GT S is the same screaming 4.7-liter V8 used in the “S” version, only slightly more powerful – it has 433 horsepower, versus 430 horses. The six-speed automatic transmission’s management software and suspension have also changed to improve driving enjoyment.

The XFR replaces the XF Supercharged as the top cat in the Jag lineup. It’s armed with an all-new 510 horsepower 5.0-liter V8 that propels the vehicle to 60 mph in a mere 4.7 seconds. And even though top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph, Jaguar has managed to achieve 225.675 mph with this car on the famed Bonneville Salt Flats. It also features two new systems, dubbed Active Dynamics and Active Differential Control, which both work to counter wheel slip, whether from a lead foot and giant torque or simple driver misjudgment. 

Seemingly buried among the slew of electric vehicles was a pair of the most powerful Mustangs ever, the 2010 Shelby GT500 coupe and convertible. The all-new GT500’s updated 5.4-liter engine will develop 540 horsepower, 40 more than the current model. Set for release this spring, this new pony car gains design and interior cues from the updated standard Mustangs, and chassis and power upgrades from the ultra-high-performance 2008-09 Ford Shelby GT500KR. Among the interior upgrades are satin aluminum trim, a soft-skin dash and suede-like Alcantara material on various surfaces.



Bentleys have more power than most drivers know what to do with. Any Bentley with the word “Speed” at the end of its name is even more powerful. This new convertible is the latest in the boutique British firm’s line of outlandishly fast cars. It puts out 600 horsepower from a 6-liter 12-cylinder engine and will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds – 0.3 seconds quicker than the standard GTC. Plus, it has a top speed of 200 mph with the top up and 195 mph with the top down.

This neat little roadster will appeal to buyers who want the ultimate driving machine. The 2009 Z4 has more power, new styling and a retractable hardtop that motorizes into the trunk in only 20 seconds. The base trim gets a 255-horsepower 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine carried over from the previous model Z4. Performance fans looking for more get-up-and-go will be happy to hear that BMW is also offering this new roadster with a 300-horsepower turbocharged 6.

I never found any nteresting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
internet will be much more useful than ever before.
