Nothing says “I’ve made it” like having one of your favorite super cars parked in your driveway. Many luxury automobile companies are revamping and producing new models that already exist. These unique creations cost a fortune, but in return the driver gets stunning performance, brilliant handling, and more often than not striking exterior and interior styling. Supercars come from all kinds of manufacturers. Established traditional brands like Ferrari, Bugatti, Pagani and Lamborghini have been producing supercars for years, but now they’re forced to line up against rivals like the Lexus LFA, BMW i8 or Noble M400. These options go beyond luxury and excellence. They are the elite of the elite and far and away the costliest of the costly. Whoever makes them, all supercars have huge price tags and cost a pack to run, but the trade-off is scintillating performance and the capacity to get the adrenaline flowing. It’s not unusual for a supercar to top 200mph these days, and 0-60 times of under three seconds are becoming commonplace.
Our top 5 features supercars will leave you in awe – they are powerful, packed with tech, stunning to look at and, importantly, still great to live with day-to-day. We think the cars that manage this the best is the 2017 Lamborghini Veneno, 2017 La Ferrari FXX K, 2017 Bugatti Chiron, 2017 Aston Martin One-77 and lastly, the 2017 Pagani Huayra.
