4 of the Best Street Racing Cars

Street racing has reached new heights of popularity in recent years. The Fast and Furious movie franchise raised a whole new generation of petrolheads fascinated by tuned-up hatchbacks, designed to tear through public roads at highly illegal speed.

Global lockdowns meant that roads were emptier than ever; perfect for competition to flourish, ironically somewhat safer than before. Let’s get one thing clear, Rear View Prints absolutely does not condone illegal street racing.

However, it is undeniably a huge part of modern car culture. Given that we are a car culture website, it would be somewhat remiss to not give some time and attention to an activity that is no doubt hugely popular to our readers. So, with that somewhat awkward disclaimer laid out, here are 4 of the best street racing cars around.

Honda Civic

We start with not only a popular street racing car but one of the most popular cars of all time full stop. The Civic is a key part of Japanese car engineering’s proud heritage. Alongside other brands like the Toyota Corolla, the Civic stands as a testament to Japan’s superior blend of reliability and impeccable design. Given the Civic’s propensity towards being customised and tuned, it has become a regular sight in global street racing over the years. Pictured above is the 2020 Type R model, but in truth, you could take your pick from any number of Civic variants to take to the street grid.

Toyota Supra

Introducing another cult legend to the streets. The Toyota Supra enjoyed a huge renaissance as a collectors vehicle with the release of the Fast and Furious movie franchise in the early 2000s. It was the MKIV model that garnered all the attention with its incredible durability and customisation options making it a perfect choice for street racing. In fact, the revival of the Supra’s popularity was so successful, it eventually led to the fifth generation comeback in 2019.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

You may be beginning to notice a pattern here. Our third entry into a list of the best street racing cars is yet another Japanese icon, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Unlike its aforementioned countrymates, the Lancer Evo is yet to be rebooted for the modern age and is in fact officially discontinued. Despite this, it remains a popular choice amongst street racing enthusiasts across the globe. It has a deep heritage in rally racing which makes it a natural fit for the street grids. Small, stylish, and very fast.

Ford Mustang

You didn’t think we’d do a whole blog about the best street racing cars without featuring the Mustang, did you? Although its Japanese rivals tend to dominate the scene, there’s a lot to enjoy about a good ol’ fashioned American motor too. The Ford Mustang has an incredible racing heritage, much like other similar American muscle cars. If it’s pure relentless power and performance you’re looking for, then the Mustang is the street racing car for you.

We hope you enjoyed reading our blog on the best street racing cars. Just so you know, we have a wide selection of prints of cars featured in this very blog available on our main website.
