Great Performance Cars in India study by Autoportal India
Normally performance cars are ones which have great power, can be handled with ease and have good braking systems. Their utility as passenger cars distinguishes them from the sports cars.
Often the mileages will be less and the prices will be high. In the world there are many popular performance cars like the Ferrari F12, the Audi RS5 and the BMW 135i.
All these cars have great power and the acceleration time from 0 to 100 kmph is less than 6 seconds and the top speeds are above 250 kmph. In India the definition of the performance cars slightly changes as the affordability, the road conditions and the mileages are also to be considered.
