Generally speaking, high-performance cars have long been defined by big powerful engines, rumbling exhaust notes, graceful and sleek profiles, flowing lines, low riding stances, and a maximum of two doors — anything more was considered a family car, and therefore not worth it to endow with great amounts of torque or horsepower, because, why bother?
Things sure have changed though, and sedans are now packing more heat than ever before, as the demand for exceptionally quick family friendly cars continues to grow. We took a look at some of the most powerful and envelop pushing vehicles boasting four doors, from the $44,000 Chevy SS to the well over $260,000 Rolls-Royce Ghost V-Specification.
So if you’re well-endowed with cash, have a family to transport (or just like the extra room), and have little concern for local speed limits, then these following 17 cars might be for you.
17. Chevrolet SS
Those living in the land down under are already familiar with the SS as the Holden Commodore, but America is just getting its first lick of the performance sedan in its current form. It boasts 415 horsepower courtesy of GM’s excellent 6.2 liter V8, which helps bring the SS to 60 miles per hour in about 4.7 seconds.
