2013 Audi RS 5 at Roebling Road Raceway: Photo Gallery

2013AudiRS5

While the draw of the 2013 Audi RS 5 ultimately is the sporty driving experience, says Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder, its looks drive the point home. Nowhere is that more evident than the aggressive front end's expansive grille. Other features include an automated spoiler that raises and lowers for greater down force; an aggressive RS 5-exclusive diffuser; and single, ovular tailpipes on each side. That's in addition to optional 20-inch wheels, faux-aluminum accents and carbon-fiber interior inlays. Wiesenfelder got behind the wheel of the lower-riding, all-wheel-drive coupe at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah, Ga. Check out Cars.com photographer Evan Sears' gallery below.

2013 Lotus Evora at Roebling Road Raceway: Photo Gallery

2013LotusEvora

Although the 2013 Lotus Evora somewhat resembles the sporty Exige and Elise — and maybe a racecar — make no mistake: It's the automaker's idea of a "daily driver." Cars.com reviewers had their day driving the Evora, the only model-year 2013 Lotus available on U.S. soil, at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah, Ga. The sports coupe is larger, heavier and more expensive (starting at nearly $70,000), with bigger doors, narrowed door sills and a higher seating position. A 3.5-liter V-6 sends 276 horsepower to this Porsche 911 peer's 19-inch rear wheels. Check out the gallery below.

2013 SRT Viper at Roebling Road Raceway: Photo Gallery

2013SRTViper

The third generation of the erstwhile Dodge Viper returned from a three-year hiatus not only a "better car overall," says Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder, but no less outrageous. Faithful to its rep, the 2013 SRT Viper boasts showy features like a forward-opening hood, 18- and 19-inch wheels in front and back, respectively, and lightweight carbon-fiber and aluminum components. Similarly impressive are interior upgrades, which in the GTS trim Wiesenfelder drove at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah, Ga., included abundant Laguna leather that muted memories of its previous inferior interior. Check out the gallery below.

2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE at Roebling Road Raceway: Photo Gallery

2013ChevroletCamaro1LE

Despite Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder's affinity for the Ford Mustang Boss 302, he was pleasantly surprised by the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE when he had a chance to open it up at Roebling Road Raceway in Georgia. Wiesenfelder appreciated the quick throttle response from the 426-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 and found the 1LE's ride quality and handling nice for a track-tuned car. Be careful taking this baby off the track, though: Cool features like that aerodynamics-improving splitter are great for speed, but not so great on speed bumps. Check out the gallery below.
