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.
THE BEST Supercars
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.
Joe Harmon took a page from the early days of the automotive industry, but in a modern sportscar. The Splinter’s frame, body, and interior are made entirely from wood. Despite that, it can hit speeds over 200 mph, thanks to its 700 hp Chevy LS 7 engine. More on Flickr.
