Top 10 Supercars Until 2010
Finding out the fastest 10 supercars until this year was not actually a hard thing to do because there weren’t that many cars launched that could fit in this top. In the following you will see some cars that are more than 10 years old that are still eligible for the “supercar” title.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport – easily the most expensive car you will find in this list with an incredible price tag of $2.4 million. The first version of the Veyron was launched back in 2005 and it became the fastest production car in the world. In 2010, Bugatti Automobiles, owned by the Volkswagen Group, came back with another iteration of their model, the Super Sport. This new yet still the same model is capable of producing 1200 hp (in comparison to 1001 hp) from the massive W16 8.0-liter power unit. The car is capable of doing the 0-60 mph in just 2.2 seconds, onto a top speed of 267 mph.
SSC Ultimate Aero – produced in a limited quantity of only 24 cars between 2006 and 2007, the Aero was recognized by Guinness Book as the fastest car in the world in March 2007. Although things have changed since then, the Aero is still an incredible car with its twin-turbo engine that is capable of outputting 1183 hp. The car will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 2.7 seconds and has a top speed of 257 mph. The price for the car was $485.000. The company is at the moment working on a car that will dethrone the Veyron.
Koenigsegg CCX – the car made its first appearance on February 28, 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show and shocked the world with its powerful 90 degree V8 power unit that develops 806 hp. This Swedish supercar only needs 3.2 seconds to reach 60 mph from start and has a remarkable top speed of over 250 mph. The price for the standard model is $1.82 million while the top of the line model will set you back $2.050 mil.
Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo – made in United States, the S7 is equipped with a 100% aluminum V8 engine that packs no more than 750 hp. This twin-turbocharged piece of engineering went on sale in 2005 and had a price tag of $585.296, replacing the standard non-turbo S7 car. It is capable of doing the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.2 seconds, onto a top speed of 248 mph. The American supercar maker is offering an optional competition package which will further increase the power of the car by 33%.
McLaren F1 – one of the oldest cars from the top, the McLaren was launched in the early 90s and it broke all current records. The car was powered by a massive V12 engine that was capable of outputting more than 600 hp which was remarkable at that time. The car will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 240 mph. The car became popular right after the launch thanks to its proprietary doors that look like bat wings. It was produced until 1998 at a price tag of about $970,000. Today, if you want to get your hands on this car you will have to pay almost double that price.
Gumpert Apollo – you might have never heard about this car but it is definitely worth a place in our top. Made in Altenburg, Germany, the Apollo is a supercar that needs 2.7 seconds to reach 60 mph and has a top speed of 220 mph. The mid-engined RWD 2-seater is made on a tubular chromoly frame, with fiberglass as standard or for extra money, with carbon fiber body panels that reduce the weight of the car. The car is available with three engine choices, the race version outputs 789 hp. The Apollo went into production in October 2005 at a hefty starting price of $400.000.
Ascari A10 – designed for racing A10, it is very well capable for normal roads. 2.8 seconds are required for the 0-60 mph sprint, onto a top speed of 220 mph. The heart of this car is a modified BMW V8 5.0-liter engine that packs 625 hp. The car was manufactured in Banbury, England and had a price tag of about $650.000. It was a limited edition car as only 50 units were ever produced.
Ferrari Enzo – no top is relevant without a Ferrari. In this top we have included the spectacular Enzo with its F140 V12 engine that is capable of producing 660 hp. At the moment it is one of the most powerful naturally aspirated automobiles in the world, with a top speed of 217 mph. The Enzo will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.2 seconds. Only 399 cars were ever produced and they sell at auctions for about $1 million.
Pagani Zonda F – an upgrade from the Zonda S, the “F” has a top speed of 215 mph and will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.5 seconds. The heart of this engine is a very powerful V12 engine, developed by Mercedes-Benz, packing 650 hp. The starting price for the Zonda F is $694,000.
Jaguar XJ 220 – the oldest car from our top, launched back in 1992. With a top speed of 217 mph and only 4 seconds to reach 60 mph, it still is a remarkable car after almost 20 years. The car features a V6 engine that outputs 542 hp and only 281 units were ever made, the last one rolled out of Jaguar’s factory in 1997. The remaining cars sell new for about 150,000 pounds.
There are other cars that didn’t made our top but the above 10 will definitely remain in the supercar history as all have huge engines, great looks and incredible price tags, making them the most exclusive cars in the world not only because of their price, but also because of their limited production.
