Just cause…. we have pulled together a handful of our favorite road trip cars. Certainly, the destination, the season etc… will effect your ideal or actual vehicle. But since we are dreaming of our favorites, we are not worried about season, what road condition, who’s going with etc…
In no particular order, here we toss about and discuss the wheels we want to hit the road in! (all of these are actual cars a some what normal human can acquire… Sure we all want to take a Ferrari 458 through the backwoods of VT and NH…!)
BMW M3 (e46)
Perhaps an easy pick, but its a drivers car built to be driven. Open the windows, point the nose at the corner and let it rip. Drive it!
Mini Cooper S
German and British (kinda), stupid agile, sounds good, fits anywhere (and its actually mine!)
Ford Focus ST
American made, powerful, good looks, handles like a…. well a cooper if not better!
Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
Not for the twisties, but as a driver, how can you not want this? The history, the visceral driving experience, so if its nice out, windows open, exhaust open, watch out road!
Classic, will go anywhere you point it, you can shove a decent amount of stuff (see below for the big brother version) in it, all while being fun. Not a bad combo.
When the whole fam is coming with? Its good looking, its hold all of your stuff, and its comfy… its a Porsche Cayenne with a VW on the front!
How sexy is this thing? Can I just live in this?
Cadillac CTS-V Wagon
This thing just wants to go, a wagon that can rip around like this? While being comfy and family friendly. Yup! Done Deal! Take My Money!
Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
Sometimes you need all that space, and this looks great, has ALL the immedities you need for a long trip… and won’t guzzle gas like its beefed up cousin the SRT!
Now, all we need to do is figure out where to eat!?
