We are experiencing a period of high for the super sports. There has never been a talent the list of offerings, each with their own unique talents.
The list of the 10 cars below features everything from hardcore hooligans, more delicate alternatives. There is a machine to suit all tastes in this segment, but the ones below are our choices of the group.
1. McLaren 570S
The 570S occupies a more pure and more exciting than the territory of its sports car rivals, but it is also more forgiving and more comfortable than the other.
His level of performance is outstanding, without compromising driveability. Its management is equally outstanding: a special mix of track-ready purpose, on the road of conformity, accuracy, and stability â€“ and enriched by beautiful feedback control.
It is more exotic than the Porsche 911, more delicate than a Audi R8 V10 Plus and more practical than a BMW i8. There is no doubt that the McLaren mid-range model is actually the machine for the company to make its reputation.
2. Aston Martin DB11 V8
The DB11 V8 is not the most refined in its class, with tyre roar and a curiously strong hiss of air that passes over the base of A pillar.
Internal size is not good enough, even if the abundance of leather is extremely soft to the touch. The Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe exceeds the Aston on both fronts, if you miss the driver involvement if you choose the big Merc.
If you’re sitting in a DB11 V8 AMG-sourced front-engine allows you to set the tone for what this car can, dynamically speaking, to do so well. It is so deeply intuitive to drive. This is a very desirable product â€“ one which ranks first of its V12 sibling.
3. Porsche 911 Turbo S
The Standard 911 Turbo has virtually everything that the 911 Turbo S, but for Â£18,848 less.
Accordingly, it is difficult to justify a premium in pure subjective terms. But for who is not interested with the money, the S range-topping performance that even beats the 918 Spyder 0-62 mph time and a prestigious badge will help to justify the award.
Performance trumps a lot faster than the supercar, but the usability of worrying about the sedans with high performance, the 911 Turbo S remains the most rounded car in its class. The only negative to come up with the relative lack of exclusivity when compared with more exotic rivals.
4. Honda NSX
Honda has managed to deploy the first time in the world the powertrain technology, with a superb lightness of touch. Has not used non-conventional means to perfect, rather than reinvent, the conventional junior supercar.
And has produced a very rare breed of mid-engined exotic as a result: one that doesn’t shout about its potential, or to impose itself on your senses, but is instead a very mature and complete car.
You might be better equipped, nicer to travel in and a touch more luridly exciting at times, but for its fusion of talents, he deserves respect. Only the McLaren 570S offers a more engaging driving experience, but with a much simpler powertrain.
5. Jaguar F-Type SVR
The F-Type SVR is the most capable of his peers. Although not far away, 600bhp is a lot more usable in the UK compared to the F-Type R, especially in slippery conditions.
But its starting price edge and into a realm of highly competitive alternatives, many of which are sharper, faster and generally better resolved.
Where the SVR vince is in his delinquent nature. A Porsche 911 Turbo and Audi R8 are sharper to drive, while McLaren 540C feels much lighter on its feet.
But if its muscle car character you want, then the F-Type SVR is as good as they come.
6. Audi R8 V10
The Audi R8 technical report of the company’s motorsport efforts is clear. The car is visceral, unique tribute to the power and performance, the noise and the number of laps, the grip and traction. It is extremely exciting to drive, although not quite as rounded, communicative or usable enough, the very best super sports car.
The most recent R8 has lost a little bit of the old character of the car to a more digital form. So, while we are impressed overall with the second-generation Audi R8, especially for its look, performance and sound, it still falls short of the more rounded rivals such as the BMW i8, the Porsche 911 Turbo S and the McLaren 570S.
7. The Ferrari California T
The Ferrari entry-level model can hold its own against anything that has to do a similar job, that offers luxury, comfort and almost as good as the class leaders. But does all of this with an injection of Ferrari in character, finely polished frame and delicate controls that also make it a great car. It’s nowhere near as exciting to drive as, say, the 488 GTB.
The steering is too light and the engine does not have the racey character, but it is fast and effortless and provides both low-end torque and high end power. It could be the first rung on the ladder, but it is worthy of the badge on its nose.
8. Mercedes-AMG GT
With the structure of the body of a supercar, with an engine of a muscle of a saloon, the suspension is tuned for maximum attack on the track and yet, the convenience and sophistication of a stylish coupe or roadster, the GT is even more disconcerting, in addition to the sports cars of the world Mercedes-Benz SLS.
Of course, there would be times when you’d grow tired of high adrenaline temperament and lack of civilization, of course, but the high would be greater than those opportunities. But the car is so capable â€“ as capable as cars twice its price is extremely lovable, even if not very gently nice to drive a 911 Turbo.
9. Mercedes SL 63 AMG
The SL 63’s party piece is its engine. It gives the car a great sound that could wake up NASCAR racer â€“ and makes it a real event to drive if you’re tooling along in traffic or on a deserted back road.
However, the car gearbox can frustrate, the steering lacks feel, its ergonomics is compromised and perhaps lacks the visual appeal of a car at the end of this pedigree deserves. This, then, is a car to enjoy a more lively rhythm. No car of this category has more presence, at low speed, or that it offers much more luxury inside its cabin.
10. Maserati GranTurismo MC
While it lacks the dynamic sparkle or commitment of the other, the Granturismo MC will make the terrain with the drama, and thanks to its high-rpm V8 engine and beautiful, Italian watch.
The car steering feels old-fashioned, with the support of the hydraulic system passing to the kind of low-intensity of the feedback electrical filter as unwanted noise. In addition, the chassis wants to understeer. Some simply see sufficient appeal to the Pininfarina-designed four seater with a Ferrari built engine to justify the price.
It is really starting to feel his age, and the segment contains many more rational, but emotionally speaking, this Maserati remains an interesting choice.
