2021 BMW M4 Competition
The 2021 BMW M4 Competition is a higher-performance version of the second-generation M4. A successor to the old M4 Competition, this nameplate is no longer a limited-edition model, but it has been included in the lineup alongside the regular M4. BMW is pretty adopting the same strategy as Mercedes-Benz, which offers two power versions of the C 63 S Coupe. An evolutionary design of the previous model on the outside, the 2021 M4 Competition introduces a new, massive front kidney grille and a twin-turbo inline-six engine rated at an impressive 503 horsepower. Not just the most powerful M4 ever built, surpassing the old M4 GTS, the 2021 M4 Competition is also the first M4 model to feature an all-wheel-drive system.
2021 BMW M3 Competition
The 2021 BMW M3 Competition is a higher-performance version of the sixth-generation M3. Essentially a more powerful M3 with extra features inside and out, the 2021 M3 Competition is the range-topping model of the G80-generation sedan. An evolutionary design of the previous model, the 2021 M3 Competition stands out through a bigger-than-ever kidney grille and a twin-turbo inline-six engine rated at 503 horsepower. This rating makes the 2021 M3 Competition the most powerful M3 ever built.
2021 Maserati MC20
The 2021 Maserati MC20 is a mid-engined supercar that the Italian company unveiled in September 2020. The brand’s first supercar since 2005, the MC20 is considered a spiritual successor to the MC12, although the two are far from related. Not only the 2021 Maserati MC20 is smaller, but it’s also powered by a twin-turbo V-6 engine instead of a V-12, and it features a less aggressive exterior design. The 2021 Maserati MC20 is likely aimed at supercars like the Ferrari F8 Tributo, McLaren 720S, and Lamborghini Huracan Evo. The 2021 MC20 is powered by a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V-6 that’s described as "100% Maserati." However, this mill is actually loosely based on Ferrari’s F154 V-8 engine and features parts from other FCA powerplants. The 2021 MC is Maserati’s fourth production mid-engined vehicle, following the Bora (1971-1978), Merak (1972-1983), and MC12 (2004-2005). Let’s find out more about the 2021 Maserati MC20 in the review below.
2021 Brabham BT62R
You know how when an automaker adds the letter "R" to the end of a model’s nameplate you feel the urge to yawn because here you have yet another potentially lackluster attempt at a ’sporty’ or, maybe, ’track-focused’ version of said model? Well, with Brabham’s BT62R the whole thing has been turned on its head.
While the BT62 is the track-only, ultra-noisy, not-really-comfy version, the BT62R is the one you can drive on the street. Just about any street, too. Confusing? Maybe, but does it really matter when you consider that, finally, we’re getting a BT62 that’s road legal in more than a couple of countries?
2021 Czinger 21C
Czinger is not a new name in the car realm. Those of you who remember the 2015 Divergent Blade know it was conceived by Divergent Technologies, whose CEO and founder is Kevin Czinger, who is now also leading California’s Czinger Vehicles. Their first hypercar is called the 21C and it should have made a proper physical debut in Geneva, but it wasn’t meant to be. Still, the 21C is an amazing, forward-thinking hypercar and we’re here to get you up to speed with it.
2021 Ariel Nomad R
Ariel Motors knows to deliver one thing and one thing only: serious fun, on and off the road. The company first offered the Atom, but it extended its portfolio to include the Nomad, a bonkers, dust-raising off-road machine based on the Atom.
The latest and meanest Ariel Nomad is the R and you’re here to know everything there is to know about it.
2021 Ford GT Heritage Edition
Ford is once again reminding its customers that buying a GT is the closest thing to getting your hands on a piece of motorsport history thanks to a new special edition. It’s called the Heritage Edition - of course it is - and it’s a nod back to Ford’s 1966 Daytona 24 Hour Continental race win.
2021 Porsche 911 Turbo
The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo is a version of the 992-generation 911. Slotted under the range-topping Turbo S, the 2021 911 Turbo is the second-most powerful vehicle from the lineup. It shares its twin-turbo, 3.7-liter flat-six engine with the Turbo S, but output is down from 641 to 572 horsepower. Likewise, torque decreases from 590 to 553 pound-feet of torque. But the 2021 911 Turbo is notably more powerful than the 911 Carrera S, and it charges from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.
2021 Gordon Murray T.50
The 2021 Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 is a supercar designed and built by Gordon Murray, the mastermind behind the iconic McLaren F1. A lightweight, aerodynamic car powered by a naturally aspirated V-12 engine, the T.50 was designed as a spiritual successor to the F1, with a focus on the driving experience rather than extreme performance. The T.50 shares many similarities to the old McLaren F1, but every aspect has been improved through the use of new-generation materials and modern technology. Let’s find out more about the T.50, described as "the most driver-centric supercar ever built" in the review below.
1993 McLaren F1
Update: The Spiritual Successor to the McLaren F1 - the Gordon Murrage T.50 - has launched with a similar three-seat configuration and ultra-lightweight, Cosworth-built engine, and the most impressive aerodynamic system of any supercar on the market today. Check out our full review of the Gordon Murray T.50 or all of our recent coverage of it
The McLaren F1 was unveiled in May 1992 and was the company’s first road-going production car. The idea was born in the late 1980s, when Gordon Murray, the technical director of McLaren’s Formula One, began sketching the F1 as a three-seat supercar. Appointed as head of McLaren Cars in 1991, Murray convinced Ron Dennis to build the vehicle and played a key role in the design of the F1. It was unlike any other supercar launched up to that point. It had a race-inspired design, a three-seat configuration with the driver seat in the middle, and a comfortable ride for a vehicle of its kind. It was also the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and the first to bring high-tech and expensive materials such as titanium, magnesium, Kevlar, and gold under the same roof.
Not only powerful and quick, the F1 was also the world’s fastest production car. Its record endured from 1992 until 2005, when Bugatti unleashed the ludicrous Veyron. The F1 spawned a couple of special-edition models such as the LM and the GT, but it was also used as a base for the GTR race car. Essentially a standard F1 with aerodynamic improvements, the GTR went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its first year on the race track.
Some 25 years have passed since its introduction and the F1 is already considered a classic. Usually changing owners for millions of dollars, the F1 is one of the very few multi-million-dollar supercars built in the 1990s.
2021 Lamborghini Essenza SCV12
The 2021 Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 is a track-only supercar produced by Lamborghini. Unveiled in 2020, it’s developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the company’s racing division, and designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile. A bespoke design that looks nothing like Lamborghini’s other vehicles, the Essenza SCV12 is limited to only 40 units and comes with its own racing program. Like other bespoke customer track cars from the past, such as the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR, all examples of the Essenza SCV12 remain with Lamborghini outside specific customer events. Labeled as a direct descendant to the Miura Jota and Diablo GTR, the Essenza SCV12 is powered by a V-12 rated at more than 818 horsepower, which makes it the most powerful Lambo V-12 supercar developed so far.
2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series
The 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is the range-topping version of the AMG GT sports car. Unveiled in 2020, the Black Series model arrives six years after Mercedes-Benz debuted the AMG GT lineage, which now includes five road-legal models and two race-spec versions. The Black Series slots at the top of the range, featuring a race-inspired exterior and the most powerful iteration of the 4.0-liter V-8 engine yet. Heavily upgraded and capable of 720 horsepower, the Black Series’ mill is also the most powerful production V-8 from AMG. The Black Series model is also the most expensive from the lineup and the only Mercedes-Benz that costs in excess of €300,000.
2020 Audi R8 V10 Quattro Limited Edition
Audi USA is churning out a special batch of R8 V10s - 30 units, for that matter - to mark the retirement of the 2020 Audi R8 V10 Quattro from the carmaker’s lineup in the U.S. Fret not, R8 fans, as Audi will keep selling the range-topping R8 V10 Performance for the 2021 model year.
2021 Ares Design Panther ProgettoUno
A year after debuting at the 2019 Concorso d’Eleganza, the Ares Design Panther ProgettoUno has finally transitioned from a pre-production prototype to a full-fledged production model, albeit one that’s limited to just 21 units.
Billed as the spiritual — and modern-day — successor of the iconic De Tomaso Pantera, the Panther ProgettoUno has evolved from the stuff of dreams into a beautiful coach-built supercar that pays proper homage to its predecessor. Never mind that it’s based on the Lamborghini Huracan; the Panther ProgettoUno is the Pantera successor that we never got the chance to see.
2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat
The third-gen Dodge Durango has been on the market for almost a decade, and now Dodge has instilled it will Hellcat power. With 710 horses in a three-row family SUV, Dodge has put the Durango on a pedestal and has taken the center-stage in the segment. The Durango is now the most powerful factory-built SUV on the planet. For a machine this big to sprint to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds is a cardinal sin. But, what can we say; we still love it and are chuffed to bits with the announcement of the Dodge Durango Hellcat. One HELL of an engine, huh?
2020 Lamborghini Sián Roadster
Lamborghini will assemble just 19 Sian Roadsters. They’re all sold at the time of writing, by the way, so all that’s left for us to do is drool at the photo gallery while squeezing in one or two details about the Roadster’s character. Here’s the essential info on Lamborghini’s new V-12, yet-unpriced marvel.
2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye
The 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye is the range-topping version of Charger four-door sedan lineup. An upgrade to the more familiar Charger SRT Hellcat, the Redeye borrows its looks, drivetrain, and technology from the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. And just like the coupe, the sedan includes drivetrain components from the Challenger SRT Demon. Since there won’t be a Demon version of the Charger, the 2021 SRT Hellcat Redeye is the most powerful version of the American sedan. What’s more, it’s also the fastest and most powerful mass-produced sedan in the world. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.
2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock
The 2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is the special-edition, SRT-tuned version of the Dodge Challenger. Developed for racing at the drag strip, but still road-legal, the 2021 Challenger SRT Super Stock bridges the gap between the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and the Challenger SRT Demon.
In short, the Super Stock is pretty much an upgrade package for the Redeye model. Fitted with a supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 engine rated at 807 horsepower and capable of hitting 60 mph in 3.25 seconds, the 2021 Challenger SRT Super Stock is described by Dodge as the world’s quickest and most powerful muscle car. Let’s find out if this statement is true in the review below.
Officially founded in 1914, Maserati built its first race car only 12 years later, in 1926. From then onward, the Italian brand grew to become one of the most successful race-car manufacturers, dominating the tracks the world over with cars such as the 250F, 200S, 1956-1958 Maserati 300S, 450S, and the 1959-1960 Maserati Tipo 61 "Birdcage." Maserati retired from factory racing in 1957, but continued to supply race cars to privateers until the late 1960s. Meanwhile, it focused on building sporty and luxurious road cars, rivaling products from Ferrari and Aston Martin. It was only in 2004 that Modena returned to factory racing.
That’s when the MC12, Maserati’s only modern supercar, was born.
Built on the same chassis Ferrari used for the Enzo supercar (launched in 2002), the MC12 was actually a secondary project to Maserati’s FIA GT-spec race car, being developed as an homologation vehicle.
Built in very limited quantities, the MC12 was radically different than the Enzo as far as aerodynamics go. Though not as aggressive as the race car it was based on, the MC12 was unique in this regard, as all the other mainstream supercar manufacturers focus on products specifically built for road use. While the road-going MC12 had certain modifications that made it more suitable for day-to-day driving, it had everything it needed to become a full-fledged race car except for a roll cage.
Updated 9/1/2015: Our man Jonathan Lopez took some pics at Monterey Car Week. Enjoy!

2020 Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70
Those familiar with the work of Dutch outfit Donkervoort know that the company borders on the extreme with its go-fast machines. In fact, there’s no better preacher to that creed than the D8 GTO-JD70, an anniversary edition that honors the founder of Donkervoort, Joop Donkervoort, who just turned 70.
2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder
The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is the facelifted version of the original model launched in 2016. It’s basically an upgraded variant of the rear-wheel-drive alternative to the standard Huracan, which features an AWD layout. Visual upgrades are in line with the rest of the Huracan lineup, but the RWD stands out with a unique front bumper and rear diffuser. More notably, it’s more powerful than the old model, as it now features the V-10 engine of the old AWD model. The naturally aspirated mill cranks out 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Huracan Evo RWD Spyder hits 62 mph from a standing start in 3.5 seconds.
