How many cars are there out in the world? Way too many to even think about naming because in addition to all of the cars here in the west, there is a whole world of Asian and Euro cars as well as some other pretty interesting manufacturers around the globe. But if we narrow down the scope of that question and ask just how many supercars there are out there, we might still find them all over the globe but there is certainly a much smaller number here.
Supercars definitely belong to a unique and elite classification of car that really shows the best of the best in strength and speed and sweet, sleek looks, that's for sure. There is something about these cars that just put them on their own level and it's not only the price tag either...though that is a pretty significant when it comes to these mean machines.
From the Tesla Roadster to the Dodge Viper and from the Porsche 911 to the Lambo Aventador and all sorts of supercars in between, these machines are dream cars for most of us. That being said, if everyone here rates each and every one of the cars in this quiz we may not give away a supercar but we will take a guess at some favorite car movies at least.
This car is probably one of the coolest and certainly one of the newest supercars out there. We are pretty sure that there are a number of people out there who might not quite consider this to be a supercar, ultimately, but considering just how fast this car can go on nothing more than an electric motor is pretty excellent on our books. Elon Musk really knew what he was doing when he decided to drop the money on building this mean and green machine.
The Porsche 911 has been a pretty staple supercar for quite a number of years, that's for sure. This car has been in the making since 1963. Those who are true fans of the Porsche 911 will be able to fully appreciate the evolution of this car over all of these decades but there is also a decent number of people who just generally think that this car has not changed all that much in looks since the 70s. We can see both sides, for sure.
Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster
Going 0-60 mph in only 3.4 seconds, this is certainly not the fastest supercar on this list but it is definitely no slouch, that is for sure. And with a price tag of over $2 million, the Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster is one mean and pricey machine. The roadster is worth its particular price thanks to the fact that there are only five of them to have ever been made. Other models of this car have gone for as little as $1.2 million...half the price but still not much better for a Joe blue collar
A lot of people would not at all expect that Nissan would ever build a car that could match anything that would be considered even close to something like a supercar but they did release the Nissan GT-R and it is a surprising machine to say the least. Since 2007 this car has been rolled out onto the market with a minimum of 480 horsepower and up to 600 horses powering the thing. That is nothing to shy away from.
Mercedes SLS AMG
This has got to be one of the best Mercs out there on the market for sure. It certainly is not a cheap car by any stretch of the imagination but this is certainly not the most expensive car by any means on this list so that has got to count for something. 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of almost 200 mph certainly puts this machine on the list to play with the top dogs out there. And it looks better than many of them.
Here is a hybrid supercar from across the pond. The McLaren P1 is a pretty exceptional machine considering that runs with the power of 903 horses. That is nothing to turn away from. 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds? Yes please. The only thing about this car that may really make someone turn away from it (aside from stylistic preferences) would perhaps be the $1,150,000 worth of car that is the McLaren P1. Certainly dissuades me from getting one. That and they are now completely sold out.
Oh, the Lambo Diablo has been a pretty sweet ride in the Lamborghini lineup since the 90s and it had a pretty good and long run on its own before being replaced as the staple Lambo car. There are still some out there for sale, but that does not mean they are particularly easy or cheap to get hands onto. The factory purple was perhaps the most famous coloring for this machine and while it is certainly not the fastest Lambo out there now, it still can hang with the supercars.
The Pagani Huayra is a pretty strange-looking car indeed and the name is nothing easier to take on when trying to say it out loud. Just ask the guys from Top Gear...the original guys from Top Gear. Richard Hammond particularly liked trying to say the name of the car out loud. What does one get for this $1.4 million car? Well, riding with the power of 700 horses at the back end of the car is nothing to poke fun at. A steep price for that power though.
One of the more notable things about the Lambo Gallardo is not perhaps something about the company itself but more about someone who owned one of these machines. Skater Bam Margera had a Gallardo in the staple Diablo purple. He had a decent enough run with it until he and Billy Idol cut a moonroof into the top of the car (which was a particularly heartbreaking thing to watch for many car lovers). Especially for a $200,000 car with a V10 powering it.
This is historically one of the greatest of the supercars on this list, for sure. Without a doubt. Why, someone might very reasonably ask? Well, it has to do with the accolades that it has gained in its time. Sure, it may not be one of the fastest supercars out there anymore but this was, at one point back in the day, considered the very fastest street legal car in the entire world. That is not a very bad rep to have.
Ferrari typically puts out very nice looking cars whether or not people want to think about buying them for whatever specs they may or may not have. That is pretty well a given when it comes to Ferrari...when it comes to most Italian supercar companies, actually. 562 horsepower and 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds...not a bad car by any stretch of the imagination. And at $230,000 it's actually nowhere near the most expensive supercar in this list. It's actually one of the cheapest.
This is actually a pretty neat car. It's a hybrid car from Sweden and while it is not cheap by any means, it is certainly a powerful machine considering that one can just plug the thing in to get it ready to drive. Regera is Swedish for "to rule", and considering that this thing can ride with the power of 1500 horses or 2000 Nm of torque while topping out at a speed of 249 mph. It does also run $1.9 million though...
0-60 mph in only 2.3 seconds? Yeah, that's a pretty good bit of zoom if you ask us. And considering that this machine rides with the power of 631 horses that's really not much to snub one's nose at. This bad boy can allegedly go as fast as 199 mph. There really is no reason to go that fast unless running a race or seriously needing to outrun the cops but one must still pay over $200,000 for that pleasure.
567 horses at hand to pull this car along is nothing to turn away from, that's for sure. There may not be many Jags that can make it out there on the supercar list...at least not as compared to a standard Lambo or Ferrari but that does not mean that we can't find room for at least one of them. The F-Type SVR can get to 200 mph after all. That's no joke. That is supercar speed, for sure. But it's up to the quiz-taker to judge this machine.
The Ferrari 488 has been in production since 2015 and is actually still being made. It's sort of the base model now for Ferrari to get people into the supercar game. The 458 is an excellent car but the 488 has the power of 710 horses with a top speed of 211 mph. That is a pretty sweet bit of info on this machine and it looks pretty good as well, though we say so ourselves. And it only runs for $350,000.
Here is a classic Lamborghini, for sure. Without a doubt. This machine first rolled onto the market for the wealthy back in 1966. The car had a decent run all the way up to 1973 but that was not the true end for this car. People are still searching for their own Miura to take care of all over the world. 365 horsepower back in those days? This was a pretty sweet machine, we have to admit. Some might not be into the style though.
Koenigsegg Agera R
The Koenigsegg Agera is a pretty cool car that made its way into the film industry in a pretty wicked way. This mean machine was a pivotal piece of plot in the acclaimed car movie Need For Speed, starring Aaron Paul. Coming all the way from Sweden, this car is actually not legal on the streets in the U.S. so an illegal race or two might feature one or three of these cars. $2.1 million a pop, we're pretty sure they used different chassis with fake bodies for the crashes.
Riding with the power of 1600 horses...the Hennessey Venom is a pretty mean machine to say the very VERY least. That doesn't mean that everyone will like the look of it or even the power of it. Someone who does, though, is Steven Tyler, the lead singer from Aerosmith. A world record speed of 270.49 mph is a nutty record for sure. However, that speed comes with a price tag. And that price tag is a whopping $1.2 million. Which is still not the most expensive car on this list.
The Ford GT is probably one of the coolest cars made by Ford. That isn't a biased opinion. It is just a fact. Look at the Ford Focus and then look at this. There is no contest. However, this model of GT is actually an anniversary present of sorts to Ford fans who enjoyed the old school GT40 that ran from 1964-69. However, this anniversary edition just happens to be able to top out at a speed of 216 mph. Certainly an improvement over the old guy.
Lambo Sesto Elemento
Here is a car that featured pretty heavily in the acclaimed car film Need For Speed. The villain of the film actually offers up his Elemento to whoever can make sure that the hero does not get to make the start line of the final race of the film. Of course, that doesn't happen and the villain drives his Elemento in the final race and...well, we won't spoil anything for those who haven't watched yet. How much does it cost the villain though? $2.2 million
The Ferrari The Ferrari...or at least that is what James May (former host of Top Gear and current co-host of Grand Tour) calls this car. And he's not wrong to call it that. LaFerrari simply means 'The Ferrari'. What could possibly be the reason for this rather odd and simple name? Well, it just so happens that the designers at Ferrari like to consider this machine the epitome of what makes up a Ferrari. However, we'll leave that to the quiz-taker to decide.
Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
707 horses powering up a Hemi engine is not all that bad. That is for sure. Especially when the car that is being powered by said horses and engine is nothing more than a Dodge Charger. That being said, there are some people out there who really do think that this is hardly a true Charger and just a jacked up car with a Charger badge on it. Others out there think that this is the epitome of the Charger. Thoughts?
How many horses does the Bugatti Veyron ride with the power of? 1200! That is a pretty wicked number, that's for sure. That is a small army of horses galloping in the engine of this machine. And that is no surprise when it turns out that this was once the fastest car in the world. Of course its sister, the Chiron, could go faster (especially with the speed cap taken off) but that is hardly the point. This thing still goes up to 254.04 mph!
221 mph to be had with this V12 supercar. Not to mention the fact that this is probably the meanest-looking of all the cars on this whole list. The Lamborghini Veneno has got some incredibly sharp edges and just looking at it head on is something to behold, that's for sure. That being said, there are a lot of people who don't want to drive something that looks so mean. Nor do some people want to pay $3.3 million for it either.
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon very much falls into the same pits as the Charger Hellcat. And I don't mean those fiery pits. I mean pitfalls when it comes to fans. There are those who think the Challenger Demon is hardly a Challenger at all. It's just a jacked up Dodge-badged car that is made into a supercar. A regular Challenger is a muscle car. Not a supercar at all. But there are many who are totally fine with this tricked out Challenger. Much like Richard Hammond from Grand Tour.
The Bugatti Chiron is the younger sister of the Veyron and like the Veyron it has managed to hit a record as being the fastest street legal car in the world. And this is a car that has actually got a speed cap on it in the first place because, for some reason, the developers of the Chiron believe that going even one mile more than 261 mph is just not safe...as if driving at the topped out 261 mph is actually totally safe...
The Audi R8 is not a car that one might expect to hear about making the realm of the supercar but it definitely takes the cake, in terms of an Audi that can play with the big boys. This V10 Audi rides with the power of 532 horses which might be on the lower end of supercar power but it does still top out at 199 mph and can run from 0-60 mph in only 3.7 seconds. Not bad stats for an Audi.
Alfa Romeo Disco Volante
The Disco Volante (which translates to Flying Saucer in Italian) is actually a very interesting car because this is not a common marketplace Alfa Romeo. Why is that? Well, this was designed by a coachbuilder who is carrying on the old school art form of custom designing bodies to go on chassis. So, it's not like one can just go and buy one of these off the lot whenever one please. That being said, it manages 444 horsepower, goes 0-60 in 4.5 seconds and tops out at 181 mph.
Here is one of the big classics when it comes to supercars. The AC Cobra was put out on the market back in 1962. The original version of this car only ran for one year and subsequent models of the car really only ever had a few years to run at a time. The production of this car pretty well ended by the time the 70s rolled around but once the 80s hit, there was an anniversary edition of this car built with the same classic look of the original.
The Lambo Aventador is one of the most popular supercars out there right now. So many celebs go out of their way to own this machine. That is likely because this is the most updated standard Lambo model out there right now. Even though it is the popular and standard model for Lambo buyers, it still rides with the power of 740 horses, tops out at 217 mph and can go from 0-60 mph in only 2.7. It does cost nearly $400,000 though.
The Spyker C8 is not one that is not necessarily familiar to too many people but it definitely deserves a place in the supercar realm, for sure. The C8 Spyder T happens to be the more powerful of the Spyker C8 models, though they do all have an Audi engine outfit, the Spyder has a top speed of 199 mph and it rides with the power of 518 horses. Not a bad way to roar down the road we think.
For under $60,000, we have to admit that this is a pretty sweet machine, whether or not one particularly likes Porsche. The Cayman has the power of 365 horses riding with it. That's a horse for every day of the year. 3.9 seconds to run from 0-60 mph? Not that bad at all. And the fact that it can blow past 165 mph does not hurt it at all either. Sure, it is at the low end of the supercar stats but it's not all that bad...or is it?
Here is a lower end supercar when compared to many of the other machines on this list but that does not change the fact that the Lotus Exige still counts as a supercar. It has 345 horses powering it and can top out at 172 mph with the V6 it comes with. It was only built for 3 years but that hardly means anything because it happens to cost under $80,000 (for the base model). Pretty cheap for a supercar status.
The Lotus Elise is a pretty ranged car when it comes to price. One can get supercar status with the Elise base model for under $90,000. That being said, if someone wants to have the best specs to go along with the Elise, then one is looking at closer to $110,000. Sure, it might only have about 250 horsepower behind it but it can still manage to takeoff pretty quickly to clear 0-60 mph in only 3.8 seconds. That may not be the fastest but it's not the slowest out there either.
The Lexus LFA is a pretty interesting car. It is not the cheapest of the supercars on this list but it is certainly not the most expensive in the realm of the supercar. It runs for a price tag of $375,000 (at least for the base model) and packs a V10 under the hood that rides with the power of 552 horses. Not a bad start when it comes to hitting supercar status. Sure, Lexus is not a brand most go to when thinking of supercar, but here's the LFA.
Well, considering the fact that this is a Ferrari, which pretty well already means that it is a supercar without really needing to check (with very few exceptions) it should not be surprising to know that this thing rides with the power of 591 horses. However, it should be quite a bit of a surprise that this car only runs for about just over $200,000. That is pretty surprising to us at least. The Lambo Aventador does have more power but it does not look as stylish as this and it goes for about $400,000...
Here is perhaps the cheapest of all the supercars on this list. This car can be purchased for only $50,000 and that is pretty ridiculously cheap when it comes to a supercar. It might only have a four-cylinder engine and it might only have 288 horses powering the thing but it can top out at 155 mph and that isn't all that bad. It's not a Hennessey Venom by any stretch of the imagination but that is hardly the point here.
Aston Martin Vanquish
This V12 beast rides with the power of 568 horses and can run from 0-60 mph in only 3.6 seconds. Sure, it might have been featured in one of the unfortunate Bond movies that people hardly ever watches anymore, so it really didn't get as much screen time as it should but it is still a sweet machine. It tops out at 201 mph, so this thing is no slouch, that's for sure. Maybe Bond should use this machine a little more often?
Alfa Romeo 4C Spider
This car has a base price of only $66,000. That is pretty incredible. Especially for a supercar. That is not something one might expect for a supercar, that's for sure. However, for that price one gets much less super and a bit more car. The Spider runs from 0-60 mph in a whopping 4.2 seconds. Certainly not the fastest. And it does run with the power of only 237 horses. So it may not be the most powerful supercar, but it is certainly more affordable.
The Dodge Viper has been around for quite some time. They tried to take it away because Dodge thought it might end up bankrupting the company but popular demand brought it back. The range in price and power when it comes to this car is pretty staggering. As far as the price goes, a Dodge Viper can be purchased from anywhere between $100,000-200,000. That is a pretty wide range. The Viper does charge with the power of over 600 horses though...at least the past few models have.
