Ferrari is the epitome of Italian made sports cars. The Ferrari 412T was the Formula 1 Racecars used by Ferrari in 1994 and 1995. This car obviously was not produced to be sold to the general public; however it is one of the hottest Italian designed cars.

Ferrari had been struggling in Formula 1 for many years. The struggles came to an end when the Ferrari 412T came to race. The 412T was the direct parent car of the F310. The F310 evolved from the 412T and went on to become one of the most successful Ferrari Formula 1 race cars. The development of the highly successful F310 would never have been possible without the technological advances that the Ferrari 412T brought to the track.

The Lamborghini Aventador is the replacement car for the Lamborghini Murcielago. The Lamborghini Aventador is arguable the coolest sports car for sale to the public. The Lamborghini Aventador is definitely the hottest Italian car currently being made. If you want men to drool over your car and women to fall in love with you than you need to drive a Lamborghini Aventador.

It can go 0-60 in 3.2 seconds. The doors open upwards like the other Lamborghinis had. Only about 4,000 total units are planned to be built of the Lamborghini Aventador. The Lamborghini Aventador is available in 13 different color schemes; however color choice is pointless. This car looks great in any color. The Lamborghini Aventador could be painted puke green, pink, pastel rainbows, or even girly polka dots and it would still be a manly car. The Lamborghini Aventador is truly one of the coolest sports cars of all time. Lamborghini continues to make cars that people lust after and the Lamborghini Aventador definitely continues this passion.

The Lamborghini Aventador comes with a V12 engine that is extremely powerful. The body and frame of this car is made from carbon fiber. The carbon fiber is much lighter than steel and stronger than steel. The super lightweight car combined with the powerful V12 engine makes the Lamborghini Aventador a super fast sports car.

The Lamborghini Aventador is seriously the coolest and hottest Italian Sports car on the market. Even if you were rich your odds of buying one is very slim; however if you did buy one it would be one of the most unique and fastest cars you would ever drive. Can you imagine commuting to work in a Lamborghini Aventador?

The Italian car designers consistently combine great looks with great performance when they build cars. Italian luxury cars are very expensive; however they are often considered the "best of the best" in the super car category. Many of the Italian cars on this list put to shame other popular sports cars such as the Chevy Corvette. If you want the best sports car in the world then you will probably be buying an Italian sports car.  Cars such as the Lamborghini Aventador are truly among the best sports cars in the World.

If you cannot afford an Italian super sports car, then you might like some images of Sports Car Artwork to decorate your walls. Looking at such posters will for sure give you happy dreams.
