Supercars are aspirational for some of us, but if you’re fortunate enough to be financially able to purchase a supercar then the below list will be of interest.
New Model: Aston Martin DBX (SUV)
SUV’s are all the rage and with the likes of Maserati and Ferrari launching their own take on this family-sized motor. Aston Martin fancy their chances at success in this arena too. The Aston Martin DBX will look like an Aston Martin but drive like a supercharged SUV. We’re sure you will agree it also looks the real deal.
New Model: McLaren Elva
Limited Production Run
McLaren isn’t shy when it comes to design and they often push boundaries when it comes to their supercars. The McLaren Elva is no exception with no windscreen or roof. Yes, that’s right! No windscreen or roof. The striking, sharp designs pushes daring design to new levels. Sadly with most McLaren cars, there is a limited production so getting your hands on a new Elva maybe just a dream for most.
New Model: Porche Taycan
Release date: Available to order
Three words, pure electric Porsche.
Porsche’s stance on an all-electric car was clear. They refused to launch an electric car unless it lived up and performed just like a Porsche and they’ve done just that. The brand new Porsche Taycan is an electric powerhouse. The new electric Porsche has impressive stats too, taking a mere 6.9 seconds to reach 100mph. Not to mention a decent range for a performance electric car, ranging from 236 to 279 miles per charge. Electric cars are continuing to be a clear trend for not just your usual suspects, we can see they have also become a serious consideration for supercar manufacturers too.
We’re super excited for 2020 as the release of some of these top models proves that even with uncertainty elsewhere, car manufacturers are investing their time and money into creating better, more efficient and more economically conscious vehicles for the future.
