Behold: the McLaren 600LT Spider: a topless variant of the 600 Long Tail (similarly equipped, with a 3.8 litre, 592bhp, twin-turbo V8) that will reach 100km/h in 2.8 seconds and continue on to a top speed of 323km’h (or a slovenly 315km/h with the roof down).
Yours for a hair-tousling €225,000.
Behold: the fastest road car on Earth – the Hennessey Venom F5.
A lightweight carbon fibre body powered by a twin-turbo V8, 1,620bhp engine that can accelerate from 0 to 400km/h (249mph) in 30 seconds and on to a frankly outrageous top speed of 484km/h (301mph)
Behold the low-slung, gull-winged curvaceousness of the Owl electric supercar – a working concept debuted at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show by mysterious Japanese technical consulting firm Aspark.
Watch the frankly ridiculous 2 second 0-100km/h acceleration of its chassis (minus the swanky shell above) here.
Behold: the Kode O by Japanese industrial designer Ken Okuyama (who had a hand in the Porsche 911 and Ferrari Enzo) – an actual 700bhp, V12 carbon fibre supercar modelled along the pointy, slanty lines of 1970s Lamborghinis and Lancias.
There are currently no production plans for the Kode O so, in all likelihood, this is the only one that will ever exist.
Specifically built for racing, the Ford GT Competition Series is a lightened, lowered, stripped of creature comforts carbon fibre and acrylic perspex version of its flagship road racer, which ceased production in 2006.
Behold the Nio EP9 electric supercar. With a frankly alarming 1MW (1342bhp equivalent) powerplant, it will accelerate from 0 to 200km/h in 7.1 seconds and top out at 313km/h (195mph). Custom brakes and active wings deliver the downforce of an F1 racer.
Also, it looks like that.
The Ferrari GTC4Lusso – the Prancing Horse’s first combination four wheel drive/rear wheel drive grand tourer. V12, 680 hp, 0 – 100km/h in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 335km/h.
