Which are those rare supercars in India

by Navyatha Sandiri

The sight of some Super Cars on the Indian roads is sure to give you goosebumps if you ever happen to be a petrolhead of these rare supercars in India. So why not! It’s not anything that you get to see every day unless you are on the sets of any Bollywood stunt scene or on the tracks of Buddh International Circuit situated in Delhi NCR.

There are just a few who can think about the thrill of driving a supercar on a desolate highway in Bangalore or the Pleasant lane. But I think that most of the gearheads such as me have been staring at a Ferrari’s or Lamborghini’s scintillating posters on our room walls, and we knew they were the outsiders of the lane.

If you want to see the best super cars in India, you would love to see the following list. Based on their results, I have sorted here the top Super Cars for you.

BMW i8 – Top Speed 120 km/h

At the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, the BMW i8 electric plug-in sports car was first presented as a concept in the BMW electronics floor of cars. Four years after at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show, the production version of this sports car began to be implemented for 2014 deliveries. The i8 has a rather aerodynamic architecture and is assembled from lightweight materials made of carbon fiber.

As a sports electric vehicle, the i8 is powered by two engines. The first is a 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo 3 Cylinder petrol engine and the second is a compact electric motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery. The IC engine will produce 231 bhp of power and a maximum torque of 320 Nm.

Using the BMW eDrive system that incorporates the advantages of both the electric motor and the combustion engine, the i8 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, while the maximum speed attained is 120 km/h.

BMW i8 is available in two versions, the first being the Coupe all-wheel drive and the second being the roadster all-wheel drive. Although the i8 Cup has priced at Rs 2.14 crore, the i8 Roadster is priced at Rs 2.25 crore.

In 2015, India received its sedan from Maserati Ghibli. However, Maserati revealed last year in 2019 that this new concept car was updated to include new petrol engines. Overall, in India, we have three different models of this vehicle. These are the gasoline-fueled Ghibli Regular and Ghibli S, and the 3.0-liter petrol engine Ghibli Diesel.
