9. Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
The name alone will be enough to scare family vans off of the road… While the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is often more referred to as a mid-size car, if the insurance is going to claim it as a “sports car”, then you might as well too!
This beautiful sports engine of mass destruction gives you a 6.2-Liter V8 Engine (just like the Corvette Stingray) with over 700 horsepower… Good Lord.
Better yet, it flaunts a bigger frame than your average sports car and gives you a feeling of domination on the road. Nothing like having the size to match the speed of your new sports car!
