The essential measure of a sports car is performance. From its 0 to 60 mph time to its top speed and horsepower ratings, these numbers define a sports car. By default, sports cars are faster and more capable than sedans or SUVs. They also provide more excitement behind the wheel. This is all true and not that surprising. But despite their best efforts, the worst sports cars ever made failed to deliver on these otherwise obvious promises.
Vehicle manufacturers sometimes present sports cars with disappointing performance, weak power output, and embarrassing 0 to 60 mph times. We found the worst sports cars ever made and compiled them all right here. They were models made by reputable brands that failed to deliver the excitement and speed enthusiasts expected. Check them out below.
You might be surprised to find a Lamborghini on this list but just look at the specs of this ’70s wonder. The mid-mounted 2.0-liter V8 with 180 HP was capable of reaching 60 mph in 7.5 seconds. Compared to later models and well-known Lamborghini supercars, this is just not as good.
However, they produced the Urraco in the dark times for performance cars, and rumors were that Lambo assembled it poorly. Lamborghini managed to produce over 700 of them, so these wedge-shaped cars didn’t sell in big numbers whatsoever (via Lamborghini).
