Recently, the motor racing world of stars and fans went into morning when news broke of the Dan Wheldon crash. The 33 year-old star who just became the father of a second baby boy was pronounced dead two days ago when he got into a 15-car crash at the Indy 300 in Las Vegas.

As the racing world mourns his sad demise, this gallery attempts to shine some light on the racer's life by taking you through some of the most sleek and sassy sports cars that would make Dan Wheldon proud.

The gallery ranges from ultra-exclusive sports cars to venomous race cars -- all these extravagant sports cars give you a piece of the race track. So as you race your way through this gallery, don't think of the Dan Wheldon crash, but of his full, impressive career in the dangerous, yet thrilling world of car racing.
