When we think of what makes a true supercar we think of immense power, electrifying speed, great looks, and unbeatable luxury. They are the cars that people dream of driving and the cars that steal the show at the biggest motoring events.
Here's our pick of the best 7 supercars in 2020:
- Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S
- Audi R8 Spyder
- McLaren Senna
- Ferrari SF90 Stradale
- Aston Martin Superleggera
- Ferrari 488 Pista Spyder
- Porsche 911 Turbo
Boasting a 4.0-litre V8 Bi-Turbo engine, 510hp and taking a mere 3.5 seconds from 0-100km/h. The in-house designed Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S is a stunning sports car. The GT S model follows in the footsteps of the similar GT model. With its famous long-nosed bonnet and distinctive taillights, this new sportier upgrade is electric from the get-go.
Exclusively available with the GT S comes the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package, offering drivers increased agility and dynamism giving you a truly race-car feeling.
The open-top version of the R8 Coupé landed in 2016, and it truly is breathtaking. The previous R8 already perfectly combined the striking aesthetic and performance associated with a great supercar – but it has been enhanced further with the thrill of open-top driving.
The Audi R8 Spyder will share a very similar muscular exterior design as its predecessor, but the use of lightweight materials this time around makes the R8 Spyder 113kg lighter than the original R8 Coupé. Its powerful 5.2-litre V10 engine offers 532bhp and a top speed just short of 200mph. It can achieve 0-62 in as little as 3.6 seconds.
Introducing the McLaren Senna, named after one of Formula 1's most iconic drivers Artyon Senna. This particular McLaren started life as a track car but was adapted and legalised for road use. With its ability to deliver the quickest lap times of any McLaren, the Senna will get you to 62mph in just 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 208mph.
Ferrari's first PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric) production car, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. Not only is this the first plug-in hybrid Ferrari has produced, but it also stands above its predecessors with unrivaled performance. Achieving a top speed of 340km/h and taking a mere 2.5 seconds to reach 100km/h.
Breaking more boundaries, this Ferrari is also the first model to include 4WD. This gives the Hybrid car unbelievable grip and speed and helps it achieve intense acceleration.
Without question, Aston Martin knows how to mix elegant design with superior performance. The Aston Martin Superleggera is no exception to the brand. With its famous low profile and instantly recognisable front grille, the Superleggera is a suitable replacement for the Vanquish S.
With a new design and sleek finish, the Superleggera is also Aston Martin's most powerful and fastest road car produced. Boasting a top speed of 211mph and reaching 62mph in just 3.4 seconds.
For those worried that the performance of the open-top version won’t match up to its 488 GTB sibling, you need not worry. The 488 Spider can reach 0-62 mph in just 3 seconds thanks to its 3.9-litre V8, which has a power output of 661 bhp and can generate a top speed of 205 mph.
A powerful design, striking exterior and unmistakable look the Porsche 911 continues to be a top pick for supercar fans. Hitting a top speed of 198mph might not stack up against some of the other players on this list, but you'll be achieving it at the wheel of one of the most exciting cars on the market. Couple this with Porsche's launch control and you'll hit 62mph in just 3 seconds.
A must-have is the PTM feature (Porsche Traction Management). This electronically controls the multiple clutch distributors, providing an even more precise drive.
