There is nothing quite like the feel of driving a performance machine. And it is even better when we know that the car is made in America by proud union members.
We have put together a list of three awesome 2013 sports cars that show off American craftsmanship and union quality, while delivering world class performance. Each car is a legend in its own right and is made by the uncompromising and hardworking members of the United Auto Workers.
Proudly manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky by UAW members, the Corvette has wowed car enthusiasts and the public for over half a century.
The official sports car of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the Corvette has a long legacy of delivering superior performance and pushing the envelope on style. It is luxurious, sleek and sexy, and doesn’t compromise on the little things.
The 2013 model has a V-8, 430 horsepower engine and goes 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. It reaches a top speed of 190-mph and provides 26 mpg highway fuel efficiency.
If you want a car that defines state-of-the-art technology, engineering and design, then you will definitely want to take the Corvette for a test drive.
The first of the “pony car” class of American automobiles—sports car-like coupes with long hoods and short rear decks – the Mustang is an American icon.
Production first began on the Mustang in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964, with its official introduction to the public on April 17, 1964 at the New York World's Fair. Ever since then it has captured the imagination and interest of each generation of car enthusiasts.
The 2013 model gets 31 mpg on the highway and boasts a V-6, 305 horsepower engine. It is stylish, powerful, and an all-around quality car that is great for both city and highway driving.
The Viper is proudly built at Conner Avenue Assembly in Detroit and is everything an enthusiast could want in a sports car and more.
Its V-10, 640 horsepower engine propels the car from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds.
Combined with its serious performance capabilities is the Viper’s beautiful design. Drive one of these in your neighborhood and you’re guaranteed to turn heads!
Starting at $95,000, the Viper is not for everybody. But if you have enough spare change in the couch, we definitely recommend giving it a test drive!
