Best car under 50k

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  Best car under 50k

I'll make this short. Bassically Im asking for some oppinons on a sports car that can be suped up. Im thinking of doing some street racing. So far I have thought of the skyline (which seems to be a pain the the ass) the rx-8, the wrx, and the evo8. I don't know any thing about cars Im just starting to get interested. So please give me your oppinions on a good fast car under 50k

thanks

Interesting. #1 I do not condone street racing--I think that you are a complete idiot for wanting to street race. Go to www.scca.org and run some legal races. That is alot more manly. You won't get a skyline--just admit it. The RX-8 is a low torque POS. The Evo is a DSM--also a POS is my book. I would say the WRX--but get the STi...that extra .5 litre has huge potential. You can easily make that car push at least 20 psi on all stock internals and get some real hp. IMHO it is also the most ugly/beautiful at the same time car. :2cents:

The skyline and the Evo will get pissed over in a straight line, all the mods will cost you twice the $/bhp than a american domestic car will.. :2cents: and subarus are just too common.. :laughing: (well, they are here!!) :thumbs:

here's my advice...DON'T STREET RACE UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET KILLED.

that said i suggest you go for something classic that will blow everyone out of the water. a rice-killer maybe. rice is for pussies. :laughing:

Hence my name, I have to say the WRX... The regular WRX doesnt beat a Skyline, but the STi in my book does!

In what respect does it beat a skyline? Certainly not in the handling catagory... Nor in the tunability or the top speed catagorys... As for the street credit the skyline wins by far. :laughing: :2cents:

Once again m8 we are meeting in opinon...I cant get a Skyline here for near 30k...maybe in England, but not here...

posted by  StiMan

Yeah, we're lucky, the Skyline was only made in right-hand-drive and so that suits us and also it already meets our saftey regulations and so it doesn't cost $1000's to uprate all the saftey features. The other beinfit was that it was actually sold in this country our of dealerships... :smoke:

Get a freaking vette if you can spend 50,000$ Honestly, what the F*CK are you thinking, lancer, rx8 with 50,000$?! You can get a used 2000 z06 for that price EASILY, even a new one if you find the right place!

Wait wait, you're saying that one of car and drivers 5 choices for car of the year is a POS? A car that was in the ranks of a 350z, Porsche 911 GT3, Suburu WRX, and the BMW 5 Series??? Wow, I think that is more oppinion than fact, it might have low torque, but POS?

Hey isnt a car but its got a horse for an engine. Then new Rams with the Viper V-10 engine. 500hp For 45,000 aint bad but got to be a catch to that.

I seem to be asking this alot the last few days. Huh?

posted by  vwhobo

its brand new it was in a paper i read. It showed a dodge ram with a V10 dodge viper engine in it. I know its off topic but it said the price was under 50k. :confused:

I know what an SRT-10 is and can even tell you what it's like to drive one. The huh is for everything else you said.

posted by  vwhobo

for 50k you got a ton of options..

early Vipers; almost any Vette;Toyota Supra (one of my personal favorites);

the Acura NSX; the BMW M3, M5; the 350Z; You can also pick up a few

Jaguars for that price now, if your into 80's cars you can get a Lotus for

under 50K; and almost any Porshe.

You're probably not going to find any Skylines in the US under 50K. Most start at 50K and go up.

Who's going to want to street race a Jag..they handle like boats and are nearly always far too heavy. Also, wont it be a bit hard to find an M3 for $50,000? I might be wrong though, I'm still not used to translating values lol :thumbs:

yeah what i do for the pound---> US is multiply the pound value by 2....yeah the real value is 1.9etcetc but 2 is best for me....for example my friend paid 140 pounds for a pair of Oakleys. he paid 280 USD for them. and left them in the hotel room. :laughing:

Thanx SJ......He left them in the hotel room? LMBO

posted by  Cliffy

posted by  SuperJew

He didn't care about it? I would have done lol...punk :ticking:
