3 COMMON SPORTS CAR MYTHS: ARE THEY TRUE?

There are hundreds of sports cars out there but many people are torn between fact and fiction thanks to the wide variety of myths surrounding these cars. Sports cars in London are extremely popular as they add to the look and feel of the city, but as there are so many restrictions in the capital, some people prefer to drive their sports cars out in the countryside instead.

There are many myths surrounding sports cars which some people believe to be true, particularly regarding their speed and safety. However, many of these myths are nothing more than fiction. To make sure that you get the whole story, we are here to help you separate the fact from the fiction and debunk some of these myths.

The Speed

The biggest difference between sports cars and regular cars is the speed. While this is an attractive point for many would-be owners, others think that this is also the biggest issue when it comes to the safety of the car. It’s been said that the high speed of sports cars in unnecessary and unsafe, however, when driven carefully and responsibly, they are no less safe than any other car out on the road.

Indeed, the speed is what makes driving a sports car so appealing, but each and every sports car has been made with two things in mind above all else - speed and safety. Just because some people choose to drive their cars in an unsafe way, it doesn't mean that the car itself is unsafe. Each car out on the road in the UK will be fitted with fully-tested brakes, safety mechanisms and features which have all been designed with your safety in mind. Ultimately, however, it's the choice of the driver as to how the vehicle is driven.

The Look

Another common myth surrounding sports cars is that their appearance compromises safety. One issue is how low certain vehicles can be, as some say that this is far too dangerous when driving at a high speed. However, cars that have been lowered must still be legally safe to drive in public. In the UK, the highest speed allowed on roads by law is 70mph, meaning that they should remain safe at that speed.It’s also said that sports cars are not practical. Of course, they may be faster and look completely different to your standard household car, but above all else, sports cars are still cars. They can be driven to work, to the gym and out to dinner. Granted, they aren't going to be an ideal family car, but if you want to make a statement, they are perfect.

The Sound

Many people believe that sports cars are unnecessarily loud. They say that they are too loud for the streets and while they may look nice, ultimately they just make noise. In actual fact, many sports cars are actually quieter than regular cars driven on the road. Of course, there are some sports cars that can be loud but many have been modified in order to amplify the sound, something which ultimately comes down to the driver's preference.

It should now be clear that many of the common myths surrounding sports cars are simply not true. Of course, if you are thinking of buying a luxury car, the chances are that you will already have a favourite in mind and will have done plenty of research prior to making the decision to buy a sports car for yourself in the future.
