Five Best Fun Cars for CEOs

You’ve worked long and hard and you deserve to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Buying a fun, weekend car is one obvious way to do that. Never mind what they might think at the office. This is for your precious personal time. Once again, we have teamed up with car shopping website and its Editor-in-Chief Scott Oldham to offer you an intelligent range of new or recently refreshed selections.


This car will put a smile on your face every time you get in. It’s simply gorgeous with all the right curves in the right places. It has a really muscular stance and the front end resembles a cat’s face, particularly when the LED lights around the headlights are on.When you turn on the engine, it has more of a Ferrari sound than the quiet purr of the vast majority of Jaguar sedans. It’s hard to believe it is a Jaguar because the rear end dances when you hit the accelerator due to the sheer power that is generated by the rear wheels. The huge 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine will take the car from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering 4.2 seconds. However, at the same time, it has all the refinements you would expect in a Jaguar. The door handles recede into the body of the vehicle, the stitching on the leather inside matches the outside color of the car and the ventilation ducts pop up out of the dashboard when you turn the climate control on. All of these details add up to a wonderfully modern and elegant vehicle. There are different versions of the F-Type, but the most powerful one is the V8 S, which we drove. The shifting mechanism is delicate and requires a bit of patience to master. It can be driven in automatic mode or shifted with paddles on the steering wheel, but both choices are capable of unleashing the power of this beautiful creature.
