Sports Cars were always in tradition when it comes to performance or popularity. Nearly every gearhead thinks that he should have a sports car that would grace their collection. But it hurts when we hear about a discontinued car. There have been improvements in every aspect in the prior decades and years in every category of cars in the ’90s. There are very few sports cars that come with a powerful engine like V8, V10, V12, or higher. Several sports cars equip average performance engines like 4-cylinder or lower category engines examples of which can be the Toyota Supra, Lotus Emira, Volkswagen Golf R, and Alpine A110 GT. Whereas, many sports cars boast a V6 or higher like Bugatti Veyron, Camaro SS, Nissan GTR, McLaren F1, and many more.
With the upcoming revolution, the demand for EV and hybrid vehicles is growing more and more. Due to which nearly every car manufacturer has started to switch to electric vehicles. Some gorgeous sports cars attract everyone’s attention like the Audi TT, Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Ferrari F8 Tributo, and Lamborghini Aventador which are going to discontinue in the upcoming market of 2023.
1. Lamborghini Aventador
Introduced to the world officially in 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Lamborghini Aventador has been a major success. The model was designed to replace its predecessor Murcielago, and by 2016 Lamborghini sold nearly 5000 units of Aventador. Inside this beast Lamborghini fitted a powerful 6.5L V12 engine that gives this car a power of 690 hp. A top speed of 217 mph is recorded officially with 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 2.7 sec. After what being heard, it can be confirmed that Lamborghini is going to discontinue its base model of Aventador after 11 successful years but you can still buy this car at a base price of $393,695.

2. Audi TT RS
Maybe considered one of the most spectacular cars on the market, Audi TT RS is the next one to this list. Audi is discontinuing the TT RS due to its lack of sales and the upcoming generation of hybrid or EV vehicles. As announced by Audi’s CEO, the German manufacturer will make the full transition to electric vehicles by 2026. Audi has targeted to produce more than 20 full EVs in their portfolio. As a matter of discontinuation of this car, 50 units of the 2022 model were released for the Heritage Edition.
3. Ferrari F8 Tributo
It is very sad to hear that the legendary Ferrari F8 Tributo will also be going to discontinue in the 2023 market. Nearly 2,265 units of F8 Tributo sold around Europe, that is 747 more units sold than in 2020. Ferrari has also stopped taking orders of this exotic sports car, a statement by Jacopo Marcon, Ferrari’s sports car product manager. Another reason can be the revolution toward EVs and hybrids. But it cannot be said properly that Ferrari fans will embrace EVs or will still prefer exotic sports cars.

According to Car Sales Base, Mercedes sold 17,641 units in 2019, and 11,732 in 2020. Whereas the number suddenly dropped to 8,108 units in 2021.

The car has been such a wonder for those who want a brand name along with styling and reliability. On the other hand in Europe, not much decrease in sales were observed. Its the reason German manufacturer decided to continue their A-Class in the European market.
