Five for Stylish Speeding 2013
From supercars and hypercars to genteel speedsters, 2013 looks like a banner year for those who like going fast. More importantly, these five cars have as much style as they do pure horsepower

At a time like this, we start thinking about what we want to review and really, about cars we wish we could test right now.
