If you’re fortunate enough to own a McLaren 765LT, you should be happy that it produces 765 hp at the rear wheels already. But if that’s not enough, Hennessey will be happy to boost its engine’s output to 1000 hp, resulting in a 0-to-60 time of 2.1 sec. In addition to the tune, the upgrade includes a high-flow exhaust system.
THE BEST Supercars
Building on their racing and road car experience, McLaren’s Artura is a supercar with a hybrid powertrain. It’s built on a carbon fiber architecture and weighs just 3303 lb. Its twin-turbo V6 and electric motor make 671 hp, launching the car from 0-to-62 mph in 3.0 sec and 0-to-124 mph in 8.3 sec, towards a top speed of 205 mph.
Developed by McLaren’s Special Operations division, this U.S. exclusive supercar is the most powerful non-hybrid road car they’ve ever made. It packs a twin-turbo V8 that produces 824 hp and 590 lb-ft. of torque, and can hit a top speed of 218 mph. Just 15 of the cars are being made, and they’re already sold out of course.
NoCal’s Elation Hypercars is showing off its $2 million electric sports car. The Elation Freedom is slated to produce 1414 hp via its three liquid-cooled motors – or 1903 hp for buyers who opt for a fourth drive unit. It also features a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, which should help offset the weight of its 100kWh or 120kWh battery.
Bugatti set their engineers and designers loose to create the most extreme track car concept. The result is this quad-turbo W16 lightweight monster that makes 1824 hp and weighs 2733 lb. Its top speed is “well above” 310 mph. In simulations, it does 0 to 124 mph in just 4.36 sec., 0 to 186 in 7.37 sec., and hits top speed in 33.62 sec.
Hyperion is showing off the XP-1, a hydrogen-powered electric car that’s said to zoom from 0-to-60 in under 2.2 sec. with a top speed of 220+ mph, and provide up to 1000 miles of range. Its futuristic cockpit touts a wraparound digital display and massive glass canopy. Here’s hoping it makes it past the rendering stage.
Only hypercar maker Koenigsegg could come up with a car that makes 1700bhp, but seats four. The plug-in hybrid’s electric motors makes 1100 of those horses, and a tiny 2.0L twin-turbo 3-cylinder engine somehow makes 600 horses. It’s also all-wheel drive, with rear wheel steering, and has enough room for carry-on luggage.
Race car designer Gordon Murray, the man behind the vaunted McLaren F1 is showing off a stunning new sports car. The 3-passenger GMA T.50 has a 4.0L Cosworth V12 engine that makes 654hp at an insane 11,500 rpm. Its carbon fiber construction is a triumph in lightweighting, with a projected curb weight of just 2,173 lb.
After wowing us a couple of years back with the Ford GT, Ford Performance has taken wraps off of a new track-only variant of the supercar that makes 700 hp, weighs 200 lb less, and has upgraded aerodynamics based on the race cars it has run in FIA and IMSA competition. Only 45 will be made, starting at $1.2 million.
Ferrari’s latest supercar delivers 985hp combined horsepower and a 0-to-62mph time of 2.5s, thanks to an all-wheel drive hybrid gas/electric powertrain. It still packs a powerful V8 in back for that iconic exhaust note. Plus, you can plug it in, and get about 25km of pure electric range.
If there was ever any question that electric vehicles could be faster than gas-powered ones, let this video be a lesson to you. Ride along as the NIO EP9, a 1342 hp electric hypercar laps the Nürburgring in 6:45:90 – the fastest time ever recorded in a production car.
This sexy open top beast is even better than the coupe, somehow dropping over 175 lb, and rocking a 764 hp Mercedes-AMG V12 engine. We think they should only make the carbon fiber and titanium supercar in this epic blue color scheme. Want one? All 99 of the $2.4m cars are already sold.
The droptop version of Audi’s powerful R8 supercar lets you truly enjoy the wondrous exhaust note of this 540hp V10 beast. It can still go from 0-to-62 in 3.6s, tops out at 198mph, and offers greatly improved rigidity, road and wind noise over the previous generation.
