Forbes Auto made a list with top 13 (wonder why 13?) hottest cars of 2008. Most powerful, expensive and beautiful car made into that list, and although in my opinion the order would have been a little bit different, I really like that they chose.

Speed and style are still the operative words for sports cars, but they’re getting plusher and more luxurious, thanks in part to an aging consumer base. Sales of sports cars in 2007 show that the rich are getting richer, and as the average age of sports-car buyers steadily creeps up, more models with added luxury and amenities are rolling into showrooms.

The Bentley belongs on the list hands down. Bentley has always been known for exeptional sports cars. As far as the 911 turbo is concerned, they did list the GT2.

I hardly would have put the audi tt on this list as there are undoubtedly better looking sports cars out there such as the 911 turbo which i find strange was not included

noooooo that bentley wud murder a jag that belongs rite there where it is, an i’m not goin to make a fuss bout the veyron this time cuz as far as iam concerned its undisputedly one of the fastest cars in the world so who cares about this insignificant chart

I agree with ALL but one......... a Bentlley is hardly a sports car. A Jaguar XKR would be a better pick!

This list is all off!!! What about the Ferrari 599 GTB? Or the Bugatti Veyron? The Koenigsegg CCXR? I agree with a few of the cars listed, but not in the order they are in. The Audi TT and R8 have no business in this category. I would have liked to see the S5 on this list though.
