When it comes to cars, most of us care about how they look, particularly when it involves sport or high-performance machines. We worry about how sleek they are, what colors suit them and many other factors that influence our favorite models.

And then you have the car lovers who not only care about how a vehicle looks but how it performs, thanks to what can be found under the hood. Over the years, cars have been powered in many, varied ways. Did you know, many of the early vehicles at the turn of the 20th century were electric? That type of power plant has only made a comeback in the last 20 years or so, first with hybrid power and now with fully electric vehicles.

In this quiz, we are going to test your knowledge about what powers various car models, from day-to-day runarounds to exotic sports cars. And although you may think it will be easy, it will certainly put your overall knowledge of cars and the motors that drive them, to the ultimate test.

So, start your engine and give it a go!
