Sports Car (5k)

The sports car is a generic name for any vehicle that is designed for speed and handling. Streamlined and equipped with spoilers and airdams, these cars are the ones used by the rich and famous, and those who want to look good for the vids - they make excellent second cars for Sanctioned Ops. Because of their speed and handling, sports cars are frequently used for road racing, but only sometimes for actual combat operations as they don't mount much in the way of armour.

Unless stated, treat the Sports Car as a normal Interceptor for accessories, handling, acceleration, braking and maximum speed.
