It is officially Valentine’s Day and that means that quite a few of you are planning some great romantic evening with the man or woman of your dreams.

We have gathered a list of five cars that are more exciting than your Valentine’s Day plans.

It’s the prettiest Jag in decades, and it comes powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8. When you are driving around in a machine that looks better than most super models, and it sounds like it’s being fueled by exploding hand grenades you have the tool for a great evening. No fancy dinner can compare to this.

The V12 Vantage Roadster might be the best car ever made. It takes Aston’s biggest engine, crams it in its smallest car, and garnishes the whole package with infinite headroom. It beauty meets beast, and it also has three pedals. If you were not aware, that makes this Aston one of the best cars in the world to ever be sold with 12 cylinders and three pedals. That bouquet of roses doesn’t look so great anymore does it?
Few countries do romance like Italy, so it makes perfect sense to have an Italian on our list. Our choice is the Aventador Roadster. With 700 horsepower and an unobstructed view skyward, the Lamborghini will romance your soul. As an added bonus, losing the roof means you can enjoy more of that V-12 snarl coming from the exhaust. Even the biggest box of chocolates won’t be as impressive as this Lambo. They will probably taste better though*.

You don’t have to spend a fortune to find excitement. The Ford Fiesta ST is one of the fastest hatches to ever hit U.S. soil, and with its available bright color choices it even looks flashier than a huge teddy bear covered in carnations. Unless you are taking your date base jumping, nothing will get the heart racing quite like this pocket rocket from Ford.

You always hear that the “bad boys” are more attractive. The SRT Viper is the ultimate bad-boy of the car scene. Massive V-10, side pipes and the most aggressive visual design this side of a machete. Driving the Viper is the equivalent of getting a face tattoo of an atomic explosion. You will be noticed by all the wrong people; they are the most fun after all.
