Why do people buy sport cars instead of regular road cars? The main reason is because they are fast. A fast car is built in such way to generate the best aerodynamic. Unfortunately, this doesn’t go along with our regular roads.

Why do you want to buy a car? Normally, it should be your tool to transport from one place to another. But with this high-maintenance speed demon, you will cater to it more than the other way around.
