Whether you love or hate them you can’t deny that the Toyota Prius is somewhat of a green hero. It’s hybrid technology and roomy interior has made it the must have accessory for eco-conscious celebrities, families and of course Taxi companies across the land.
Tesla Model S
For the moment, if you’re looking to buy an all electric car, there is only one company to go for, Tesla. The Tesla Model S consistently outperforms most rivals and gives you all of the benefits of electric motoring without compromising on power and performance. One charge of the battery provides up to 373 kilometres range, more than enough to get around a F1 track without needing to stop to refuel.
Subaru Impreza WRX Hatch
Subaru’s Rally history is well documented, however until now there has never been a Subaru F1 car. The Impreza with it’s turbo charged, highly tuned engines and sports suspension are truly capable cars for any situation.
When you think of luxury British car brands, Rolls-Royce is most likely the first manufacturer to pop into your head. Rolls-Royce likes to compare the Phantom (hand built in England) to a classy piece of fine jewellery. This piece of jewellery however will do 0-62mph in 5.8 seconds, that should make it pretty quick off the grid.
With over 50 years of development, the Porsche 911 is a real motoring icon that has become synonymous with style and performance. The current Turbo S model has a top speed of 205mph and a 0-62mph time of 2.9 seconds. With stats like that it should leave the other cars in the dust when the race starts.
The Audi R8 is a great supercar with motorsport racing through every fibre of its carbon body. With a top speed of 205mph and a 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds it would be a close race on an F1 circuit between this and the Porsche.
Classic Ford Mustang
When the Ford Mustang was first released in 1964 it became an instant hit and by 1971 even James bond had one. The Las Vegas chase in Diamonds Are Forever is all the proof you need that this car would make an excellent F1 racer.
The Smart car is renowned for being a nippy little city car and it isn’t what you would expect to see speeding round an F1 circuit. However, with its three cylinder engine and miniscule dimensions you could really see this car weaving its way through tight corners and traffic on the track.
The Jeep traces its automotive heritage all the way back to World War II and this beast is very comfortable over almost any landscape. Being built for rough terrain you would never imagine a Jeep speeding round an F1 track. That is until now.
