Driving cars fast can be fun but it can also be very dangerous. If you drive to fast you can get in a wreck and get seriously injured or worse.
I learned a lot about how sports cars have changed in the last 100 years! Sports cars are made by a lot of companies from a lot of countries! Italy makes the fastest Sports Cars! Sport cars got Cooler every 10 years! They got Faster! Some of them got A LOT more expensive! When I grow up I want to have a blue Ford Mustang GT convertible!
