There are many reasons men love driving nice cars. Some men have a deep appreciation for automotive technology and design, while others crave the thrill of racing down the road in a powerful machine. Then, there are the men who see their car as an extension of themselves, resulting in them wanting to drive expensive cars that project success.
The best cars don’t just appeal to one of the reasons men like driving exceptional cars–they appeal to all of them. The most desirable cars in the world have it all: impressive technology, attractive design, incredible performance, and undeniable status. They rank high in every category and thus appeal to car enthusiasts and casual fans alike. If you’re ready to learn which cars have earned this universal adoration, join us as we count down the top 10 cars every man dreams of driving.
First up, we have the legendary Nissan GT-R. The Nissan GT-R was designed to be “A Supercar for Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime” and it delivers. This high-performance sports car is the successor to the Nissan Skyline, an attractive four-door sedan that had the same engine as the Prince R380 race car. The Nissan GT-R and the Nissan Skyline are both iconic supercars with the same signature four-round tail lights, but the GT-R sets itself apart by featuring some of the most advanced performance technology you’ll find in any car today.
There’s a lot to love about the performance of the Nissan GT-R. It comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 3.8-L V6 that produces 565 hp and 467 lb-ft of torque. It also has an IHI turbocharger with high-precision electronic controls, all-wheel-drive handling, and aerodynamics that create a Coefficient of Drag of a mere 0.26 Cd.
Altogether, the GT-R’s performance makes the car not only impressive but incredible to drive. That’s why we picked the GT-R over competitor sports cars like the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the Dodge Viper, or the Jaguar F-Type R. The GT-R is just a cut above the rest. Getting behind the wheel of a GT-R is an experience every man should have at least once.
The 2022 Ford Bronco is the ultimate off-road vehicle. This rugged, American-made car prioritizes practicality and focuses on the car’s off-road capabilities. It comes standard with skid plates, a steel front bumper, tires designed for off-roading, and a unique marine-grade vinyl interior that allows you to completely hose out the inside of the vehicle. It also offers several improved versions of features found on its main competitor, the Jeep JL Wrangler. Most notably, the 2022 Ford Bronco’s removable doors can be conveniently stored in the trunk of the vehicle after they’re taken off.
On top of having a huge range of practical, impressive features, the 2022 Ford Bronco is a joy to drive. It also has a much more pocket-friendly price tag than many of the other cars on our list. But if you want to pick up a 2022 Bronco for yourself, you’ll need to act fast. Ford has already announced that they’ll stop taking orders for this in-demand car in the spring.
The 2021 Lamborghini Aventador is the definition of a dream car. From its theatrical look to its in-your-face V-12, this Italian muscle car is over the top in every way. Both the coupe and convertible forms of the Aventador are undeniably eye-catching, with an exotic supercar look that’s becoming rarer each year. The performance aspect of the Aventador, which features a 730 hp 6.5-liter engine and automated manual transmission, also has a certain nostalgia factor. They don’t make many cars like the Lamborghini Aventador anymore, so its striking look and even-more-striking performance are especially alluring.
The 2022 Mercedes Benz EQS is one of the most luxe electric vehicles ever made. This sedan boasts luxury on all fronts, from its classically beautiful exterior to its state-of-the-art features. Among its many other features, the EQS is offered with a glass-covered Hyperscreen dashboard, neck and shoulder heating, exceptionally well-done ambient lighting, the MBUX infotainment system, and your choice of a 329 hp rear-wheel-drive powertrain or a 516 hop all-wheel-drive setup. The 2022 Mercedes Benz EQS is undeniably impressive, even when compared to other high-tech sedans like the Mercedes-AMG EQS or the Lucid Motors Air.
The Lamborghini Urus gets about as close to a supercar as an SUV can. This powerhouse has an extraordinary 641 hp twin-turbo V-8 and perhaps the best acceleration of any SUV. The Lamborghini Urus can reach 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. The Urus also feels more athletic than other SUVs, thanks to its ultra-quick steering and stable high-speed cornering. Compared to other Lambos, the Urus is a practical choice, but it doesn’t sacrifice a bit when it comes to the driving experience.
The Bentley Bentayga, the first and only SUV ever released by the brand, is a gorgeous luxury car that translates the Bentley appeal into a new format. The Bentayga is faster than many competitor luxury SUVs, but it isn’t the performance that sets the Bentayga apart from vehicles like the Audi Q8 and the Lexus LX. It’s the Bentayga’s exquisite interior and undeniable cachet. The Bentayga is gorgeous and every bit as luxe as Bentley’s coupe and sedan models.
The latest Porsche 911 is a work of art. The 2022 GT3 RS manages to improve on the already incredible performance of the 911 Turbo S. This updated version of the 911 has impressive performance statistics, especially when it comes to horsepower. The 502 hp of the GT3 will take your breath away. And when you drive the ingeniously aerodynamic Porsche 911 GT3, you can feel the difference. Driving a 911 GT3 on an open road on a beautiful day, smoothly powering through corners–it’s nothing short of exhilarating.
The 2022 Ferrari 458 Spider is an exotic supercar that delivers thrilling speeds and timeless beauty. The drop-top version of the 458 also delivers an impressive innovation in the roof itself. The 458 Spider features a folding metal roof that is somehow smaller and over 50 pounds lighter than a drop-top would have been. The Spider is still heavier than the hardtop 458, which has a slight effect on its speed and handling. Yet, the performance of the 458 Spider is still extraordinarily impressive, allowing you to enjoy exceptional control and speed even with the wind in your hair.
The Tesla Roadster is the supercar of the future. Like other Tesla vehicles, the Roadster is a beautifully designed, environmentally-friendly car with an array of high-end features that make it a joy to drive. What sets the Roadster apart from other Teslas is its sporty look and powerful performance. The Roadster can reach speeds of 250 mph, easily beating the 200 mph top speed of the Tesla Model S. The Roadster also has record-breaking acceleration, range, and performance stats, making it a must for those who appreciate the best in performance and efficiency.
Meet our top pick: the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan. With a base price of $327,750, the Rolls Royce Cullinan is as luxurious as the famous diamond it takes its name from. This all-terrain SUV drives like a dream, while simultaneously delivering power and luxury. The Cullinan has an adaptive Magic Carpet Ride air suspension system that allows it to automatically adjust its setup, creating a blissful glide-like effect. And though the Cullinan is sizable, it can go from 0 to 60 mph in just five seconds thanks to its 6.7L Twin Turbo V12 engine.
What truly sets the Cullinan apart from other excellent SUVs, like the BMW X7 or the Ford Mustang Mach-E, is a supreme luxury. No other SUV is as sublimely quiet or smooth, and the Cullinan also has competitors squarely beat when it comes to luxe interior features. The immaculately designed Cullinan interior features lambswool floor mats, high-end genuine wood trims, quad-zone climate control, seat massagers, champagne flutes stored in a damage-proof enclosure, a raisable luggage storage space, a glass partition, and much more. Driving a Cullinan is simply an experience every man dreams of having.
