Dressed in carbon-fiber, it looks and sounds like a fighter jet. The 7.3-liter V12 engine produces a peak power of 650 bhp and a ridiculous 1057 Nm torque. This car challenges other supercars from Italy or Germany and confirms a spot for the manufacturer in the elite supercar league.
This car proved that best of supercars don’t necessarily need to come from Italy or Germany. The Competition Coupe X (CCX) beat lap times made by the Stig previously in the Zonda F, Maserati MC12 and Ferrari Enzo on Top gear’s famous test track. The 32-valve, V-8 engine develops a monstrous 806 bhp and 920 Nm of torque. Come to think of it, the CCX is more or less the best of the best and is not just another supercar.
Made by Germans and made to conquer them all. The GT was Porsche’s first limited production supercar after the 959. Technology was borrowed and developed from its race siblings and the results are quite impressive. The 5.7 liter, V10 engine that develops 612 bhp weighs just 205 kg. The GT boasts of a top speed of 330 kph and gets to 60mph from a stand still in a mere 3.9 seconds.
"Sportlich, Leicht, Rennsport" was developed by Mclaren to give its clients the F1 experience on a road car. The project did not turn out as well as they would have wanted it to, but that takes nothing away from the SLR. The SLR McLaren sports a 232-kilogram, hand-built 5.4-litre, supercharged, all-aluminum, V8 front-mid mounted engine that can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and has a top whack of 334 km/h.
Automotive exclusivity doesn’t get bigger than this. The Maybach 62 measures the size of a cinema hall but has top speed and acceleration figures similar to a sports car. The V12, Bi-Turbo, 5513 cc engine, churns out 550 bhp and 900 Nm of torque. The 6.17 metre long limousine, features mind-boggling technological goods and its unique spaciousness and seating comfort makes it the ultimate luxury on wheels.
