Who needs normal when there’s super to be had? Think about it; is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it’s normalman. Rubbish. And Americans would never settle for a normalbowl as their yearly sporting highlight. The list is endless. Normalnatural, normal Mario Bros, normalheroes with normalpowers or normalcalifragilisticexpialidocious. Rubbish. The same goes for cars. Everyone and anyone can have a normal car, but only the supercool get supercars.
Gear up for a glimpse at the sexiest supercars of 2016.
TRION NEMESIS RR
First on our list is the new kid on the block Nemesis RR, which happens to be the inaugural offering from US based manufacturers Trion. Naming their baby Nemesis is a nod to established Supercar brands that Trion are making very serious beasts to rival even the best of the best on the market.
And while several variants of the Trion Nemesis will be offered, it is the Nemesis RR getting the most attention with a 2000hp twin-turbo engine and allwheel drive helping it reach speeds of over 270mph. With an available “Predator Mode” to shred its competitors, Nemesis has clocked a 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds giving it a headstart in living up to its name.
The Nemesis RR is expecting rattle a few cages in the Supercar world and they’ll be hand-crafted in very limited volumes, so book yours now.
The latest beast unleashed from the McLaren stable, the 675LT is touted as the lightest, most driver-focused, most exclusive series-production McLaren supercar ever built. Inspired by the F1 GTR ‘Longtail’, the 675LT features striking carbon fibre bodywork that increases downforce by an astonishing 40 percent over any other model in the Super Series, making it handle like an angel.
However, the re-engineered M838TL V8 twin-turbo engine produces a devilish 666hp for a top speed of 205 mph with 0-60 in 2.9 seconds.
With a polycarbon everything except the kitchen sink, the 675LT weighs only 1230kg – 100kg less than the lightweight 650S.
The result is, unsurprisingly, more power, more raw emotion and more mind-blowing performance ultimately leading to more extreme wallet emptying prices. We’ll take two please.
Ferrari’s first street legal gasoline-electric hybrid, the LaFerrari boasts the most extreme performance ever achieved by a Ferrari production car, plus innovative technical solutions that will no doubt filter down to the rest of Ferrari’s future range.
At its core, the LaFerrari uses a 789hp 6.3-liter V12 engine coupled to a 120-kilowatt electric motor which bumps total maximum output to a filthy clean and somewhat dangerous 949 hp. Two electric motors are actually on board – one to power the driven wheels and one to run ancillary devices.
How fast is it? Well this little pony has a top speed of around 220mph with a 0-60 in a surprisingly sluggish 3 seconds. Never mind, it’s eco friendly, sort of. Want one? We do.
Appearing from the shadows as the Dark Knight’s dirtiest dream, even Lamborghini think this car is crazy.
Brutally powerful and obscenely flamboyant, the Aventador is surprisingly agile for its size, making it one of the most drivable Lambos ever produced. But simply because it’s drivable doesn’t make it easy to drive – and therein lies its appeal.
With a 6.5-litre, 740hp V-12 mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, this black beauty does 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 220mph making it a relatively standard addition amongst its competitors – EXCEPT IT’S MIDNIGHT BLACK AND LOOKS F*CKN BAD ASS.
You can’t buy a Ford GT yet, but if you want one, start saving now. Prices are expected to begin at as much as $400,000. One look at its stats tells you all you need to know: a mid-engine twin-turbo V-6 with more than 600 hp, plus full carbon-fiber construction and body panels. Power will be sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic; but sadly, a manual will not be available. Production starts in 2016 and it’s gonna be fast.
