Every car made during an “Aught” year (2000-2009) are not to be scorned, but beloved. Without the awkward phase of the advent of advanced technology, we might have never had access to cooler automobiles. So rev your engines in reverse, because here are five choice vehicles to revere.
A stranger contestant to the sports scene of the Aughts, the Viper was well known for suffering many a crash in Cruis’n USA. However, this model was subject to criticism in real life. The SR II corrected these errs of a huge engine, manual transmission and poor visibility with a six-speed transmission and a V10. Plus, actual amenities like anti-lock brakes, airbags and air conditioning.
The type of convertible that you’d find in Madonna’s garage, the S2000 breathed out 247 horsepower through a 2.0 liter VTEC. Additionally, there was a 50/50 weight distribution and a rear-wheel drive. To me, this screams Charlie’s Angels, because it simply has a similar ferocity that Cameron Diaz would drive with if she just had to save the world.
Volkswagen Golf R32
A beacon of light in the Golf line, the R32 was an exclusive ride during 2004. There was something for everyone to like about the Volkswagen. What, with it’s choices in transmission, one of which – the six-speed dual clutch – never before seen in a production car.
Saab 9-5 Aero
For every Aught year, Saab had a firm grip on affordable swank to pick up your date in. It was heavy on the torque, light with a five-speed manual transmission and sure-to-impress with the 250 horsepower. Furthermore, I knew people with this car. Good people. Sincere, like the 9=5 Aero was designed to be.
Pontiac Solstice Coupe
At the tail-end of the 2000s, we’ve seen none so niche as Pontiac’s compact sedan. This aught ought to have been a little larger as far as the cabin goes. But convertibles were popular then, so it’s a small price to pay for a 5-speed automatic transmission. There’s also a 2.4 liter engine allowing you to reach 60 miles per hour in 6 seconds. 174 Horsepower whinnies excellence though the windows are lowered manually.
