American Travel…Really Fast

American travelYou don’t have to fly around the world constantly to live the splendid life of a Jetsetter. Don’t forget that there are plenty of spine-tingling road trips to be had right here in the good, old United States of America. The clear advantage to American travel is you can rent yourself a hot little sports car and roll in style. If you already own a hot little sports car, bully for you. What are you waiting

for? Get it out on the road.

When it comes to seeing the highways and byways of America at top speed, what better rental car choice than the current fastest production model available, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT. Now we didn’t say you could trot down to your friendly neighborhood Hertz dealer and find one of these. And who knows what the daily rental rate would be. Probably one of those deals where if you have to ask – you can’t afford it. How fast is fast? The Ultimate Aero clocks in at 255.83 miles per hour. That’s fast. You could see a lot of America fly past the windows at that speed.

Stepping down from fantasyland for a moment, what would be a good, high-performance car to choose for your American travel that’s a bit more grounded in reality? The Mazda RX-8 can be had for a $26,000 to $35,000 (purchase price). This practical sports car uses a 238 HP engine to hit 60 mph in 5.8 seconds and, strangely, can seat four adults in comfort. With the RX-8’s great combination of handling, speed, and comfort, you might almost convince the wife that it would make a good family car. Good luck with that.

All that’s left is for you to lock and load your American travel destination. We hear the fall foliage in Maine is an excellent sight to behold. And don’t forget the Pacific Coastal Highway. Or the Overseas Highway heading out to Key West. Or old Route 66….
