The guys at Ghost Motorsports had the pleasure of going to the Los Angeles Auto Show which just wrapped up two days ago. After careful consideration, they gave an impressive list of their top 5 cars based on what they saw at the show.

After a year of anticipation, just as we thought the world was ending, the 2011 LA Auto Show is back in action! As with previous years, the event has been a huge success and automotive manufacturers are gaining massive exposure for their newest creations. In particular, 5 vehicles stand out from the crowd:


1) 2012 Mercedes ML63 — Sporting the new 5.5-liter, twin-turbocharged powerplant now found in the E63, CLS63 and other models, Mercedes-Benz has turned an already fast SUV into a rocket ship. Not only are track times improved, but the twin-turbocharged engine will surely increase towing capacity. Range Rover, Porsche, BMW and others should be shaking in their boots.


2) 2013 Shelby GT500 — A Mustang with more horsepower/torque than exotic cars… and it’s from the factory? Yes! The new 2013 Shelby Gt500 Mustang boasts a whopping 650 bhp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. If that doesn’t make you happy, I don’t know what will.


3) 2012 Jaguar XKR-S — Taking the sporty XKR to another level, the XKR-S is for true performance enthusiasts. Power was increased to 550 bhp and a much sportier, aggressive aerodynamics kit has been added.


4) 2012 Audi S7 — If you’re an Audi enthusiast, you know the S-models mean business. Kicking a luxury sedan up a notch, Audi stuffed a twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V8 engine under the hood, which is a pleasant upgrade from the 3.0-liter supercharged engine found in the A7. The S7 spits out 420 bhp and nearly the same torque.


5) Subaru BRZ Concept STI — Subaru WRX owners who’ve wanted a more sporty 2-seater have had their prayers answered. Unfortunately power numbers haven’t been released, but the fact that it’s rear wheel drive is quite promising.

The car that was listed at number 2 should have been higher. Just sayin.... But it's safe to say that the guys at Ghost Motorsport love for their cars to have horsepower.
