Supercars are usually set apart from other normal cars by specific features. These features include intricate engines that provide the cars with extreme speed and power. One of the best examples of a powerful supercar is the Bugatti Veyron. Its engine produces in excess of 1,000 horsepower and includes 16 cylinders, twice the amount on a normal supercar. But big engines aren’t everything. The Ferrari 488 GTB’s 3.9-litre engine gives it enough power to accelerate from 0 to 200 km/h in just 8.3 seconds.
Other features that set apart these cars include a rigid body construction, impeccable aerodynamics, automatic gearboxes, carbon-ceramic brakes, Variable Torque Management and ultra-precise handling capabilities. They are also fitted with noise cancelling materials to reduce noise produced by wind and ‘powertrain’ noises thereby enhancing their comfort.
Starting us off is the well-appointed Aston Martin designed for the new James Bond movie, Spectre. This luxurious car was unveiled to the public on 4 December 2014 by Sam Mendes and Barbara Broccoli, the directors of the action-packed movie. The car is a two-door coupe grand tourer. It will continue Aston Martin’s longstanding tradition as the starring car in the upcoming James Bond 007 movie. The DB10 was built specifically for Spectre, and only 10 units will be made. Aston Martin’s officials stated, “The DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins.”
3. Aston Martin Vanquish
The 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish is equipped with a new V12 engine making it the most powerful GT production engine in the history of Aston Martin. The engine produces a whopping 568 horsepower and helps this ultra-luxurious supercar accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds. It is so awesome that Aston Martin does not call it a grand tourer, but a ‘Super Grand Tourer’. The Vanquish is also equipped with an enhanced eight-speed automatic transmission. Its body is curved from aerospace engineered carbon-fiber which gives it exceptional rigidity and finely honed agility. This epic car also features a state-of-the-art infotainment system with buttons that feature ‘haptic feedback’.
