5 Hottest Cars of 2008: Still Worth Buying Today

The New York International Automobile Show (http://www.autoshowny.com/) just wrapped up about a week ago and so the world has now seen what's to come in terms of new cars for 2008. There was lots of sleek and sexy showing off at the event but a few of the new designs really stood out as being some of the hottest cars to hit the market in 2008. Here's a look:

2008 Audi S5

The Audi S5

Just from the looks of it, the Audi S5 holds a place in my heart. It's just one of those cars that passes by you on the freeway and you have to try your best to catch up to it to find out what it is. It's a sporty car with a V8 engine and it comes equipped with a 12-speaker sound system so it's a car that is fun to drive.

2008 Ford Mustang GT500KR

For a real eye-catcher, New York saw the new Ford Shelby Mustang. This car looks like it belongs on a race track and will be loved by those adolescent boys who think that The Fast and The Furious should be played out again and again on U.S. streets. Like the Audi S5, this new Mustang was one of the concept cars that debuted in New York last week.

So, here's the thing about sexy. Sometimes sexy just means eye-catching and nothing more. You know what I mean; you walk into that bar and there's that girl that catches your eye. She's not quite dressed in that "take me home to Mom" way but you can't take your eyes off of her anyway. I mean, you don't even really think she's attractive, but you still want to look. That's the story (for me anyway) with the Chevrolet Beat.

Ford Airstream

That's also the story for the Ford Airstream. Well, almost. To be honest, I'm not even sure that I find this vehicle sexy in the slightest. But at the same time, it's definitely different. And there's something to be said for different that can make a vehicle hot even though you can't quite place your finger on the reasons for why.

2008 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

Enough about this weird, trendy-looking cars and whether they're hot or not. New York also saw some new designs that had some really classic looks to them and this was one of them. Beautiful red color, modern stripes in the paint job and hot in the way that only a convertible can be.
