Supercars with their lightning speed and heart-melting designs are of the most searched topic on the internet for the past few years. These super-fast monsters are not affordable to most of the population of this world because of their price, but owning one of these means you are of one of the Richie-rich of this generation. Here is the list of top 10 supercars.
- BUGATTI LA VOITURE NOIRE
La Virtue Noire translates quite simply to “The Black Car.” However, there is nothing simple about this black-on-black one-off coupe with the comfort of a luxury limousine and the muscle of a hypercar. At its core is the automaker’s iconic W16 8-litre 16-cylinder engine, which develops 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque. It is also the most expensive car in the world worth $ 19 million.
- ASTON MARTIN AM-RB 003
Previously code-named Project 003, the AM-RB 003 is the third model in Aston Martin’s mid-engine lineup, joining the stunning Valkyrie and extreme Valkyrie AMR Pro. AM-RB 003 sports a more traditional mid-engine supercar layout, with high-exit exhausts, a jet-fighter-style canopy, and active aerodynamics and suspension. The 003 is propelled by an all-new V6 engine that will feature some level of hybridization and turbocharging to aid performance.
- KOENIGSEGG JESKO
Swedish automaker Koenigsegg builds some of the fastest supercars in the world. The company claims the Jesko will reach 300 mph. The Jesko is motivated by an all-new 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 capable of producing 1,280 horsepower on standard gas (1,600 horsepower on E85 biofuel) and 1,106 pound-feet of torque, which makes it the most potent Koenigsegg internal combustion engine ever made.
- LAMBORGHINI HURACÁN EVO SPYDER
As with the hard-top coupe, the convertible is motivated by a tweaked version of Lambo’s 5.2-litre V10 engine, which now produces 640 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque just like the race-inspired Performante model. With the help of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel-drive, it can propel the Huracán Evo to 62 mph in 3.1 seconds and on to a top speed of more than 202 mph.
- FERRARI F8 TRIBUTO
This mid-rear-engine two-seater is the successor to Ferrari’s popular 488 GTB. According to the Italian car builder, the F8 Tributo is every bit at as powerful as the company’s more performance-oriented 488 Pista, but tuned with more focus on drivability and comfort. The F8 Tributo features a twin-turbocharged 3.9-litre V8 that produces 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, making it the prancing horse’s most powerful mid-rear-engine production car to date. Those figures are identical to those of its rival, the McLaren 720S, and are suitable for a top speed of 211 mph and zero-to-62 mph romp of 2.9 seconds.
- MCLAREN SPEEDTAIL
The McLaren Speedtail is the spiritual successor to the 1992 McLaren F1, the legendary ultralight, V12-powered, mid-engine coupe whose beastly acceleration and 250 mph top speed made it the world’s first hypercar. Generous motivation is provided by a 1,036-horsepower, a gas-electric hybrid powertrain that will propel the Speedtail to 186 mph in a staggering 13 seconds and to a top speed of 250 mph, making it the quickest McLaren built to date.
- MERCEDES-AMG GT R ROADSTER
The Roadster’s hardware is nearly identical to the Coupe’s. A four-litre twin-turbo V8 resides under the hood, delivering 577 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, just like the Coupe. When all that power is routed through the seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, Mercedes claims the car will accelerate to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 197 mph.
- AUTOMOBILI PININFARINA BATTISTA
Known as the Battista, its powerplant will develop 1,900 horsepower and 1,696 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough get-up-and-go to reach 62 mph in less than 2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 217 mph. The Battista will go into production in 2020. Only 150 units will be built at an estimated price of $2 million to $2.5 million
- PIËCH AUTOMOTIVE MARK ZERO
A sleek sports car, the Mark Zero is powered by three electric motors—each rear wheel gets a dedicated 150-kilowatt synchronous electric motor, while the front axle has an asynchronous 150-kW motor. The result is a combined output of 450 kW, or 611 horsepower, which is good for a zero-to-62 mph romp of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.
- PORSCHE 718 CAYMAN T AND THE 718 BOXSTER T
The 718 Cayman T (above) and 718 Boxster T are both powered by the same turbocharged, 2.0-litre flat-four engine tuned to deliver 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Mounted directly behind the passenger compartment, the turbo four spins the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission; a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic tranny can also be outfitted for a few extra dollars. Porsche claims a zero-to-62-mph in 5.1 seconds with the stick and 4.7 seconds with the automatic regardless of body style. Top speed is 171 mph.
