Three-wheelers have recently been gaining momentum and acceptance in the performance car community. Venice is about as unique as you can get in terms of design. The stellar look of the car is just what you’d expect out of a roadster. It is also usable for daily driving.
The top is easily accessible and there’s a good amount of cargo room for a long-term voyage. Creature comforts such as an upmarket stereo keep the Venice looking great. The 200 horsepower engine can reach 0-60 in about 4.5 seconds. Not bad by any stretch of the imagination, especially for a three-wheeler.
Another blistering American performance car is the VLF Force 1. This is adjusted about as unique as a performance car as you can get. The exterior styling is meant to look very upmarket, and the designers went all out. VLF Force 1 is about as futuristic looking as you can get. The deeply sculpted lines let you know that this car was designed to garner attention.
But the VLF isn’t just about looks, the Force 1 also performs just as well. While not as obscene-looking as some of the other cars on the list. VLF Force 1 is a seriously fast performance car. With the features to take it to the next level of track driving, there are very few vehicles that can match the performance.
The Ford Thunderbird was a retro rendition of a well-known classic. At this point in the industry, Ford was looking for something unique. Chrysler had the Prowler and the PT Cruiser, Chevy had the SSR, and Ford needed a halo car. The Thunderbird was retro-inspired complete with a Jaguar-derived V8 powerplant.
The overall design of the car is still beautiful to this day. Ford spared no expense to make the Thunderbird an American classic that would stick out. The 2003 Thunderbird is one of the most coveted Fords to come out of the last few decades. The resale price of these cars has remained consistent. You can expect to pay a pretty penny for a low mileage Thunderbird.
The original Dodge Viper is the first American vehicle to cram a powerful V12 engine into a lightweight design. The look of the Viper was something that hadn’t been seen in a sports car before. The long, sloping body and the almost toy-like alloy wheels were a real treat. The Viper was the first serious competitor for the Chevy Corvette, and people were loving it.
The Viper nameplate lasted for almost 30 years but was eventually exiled from production. For a truly unique piece of American design, the Dodge Viper is worth noting. You can still find these on the open market. A Viper in good condition isn’t going to be cheap, so be prepared to drop some serious dollar bills on one.
