Although the definition of a supercar has evolved over the last two decades, the metal content that makes up this class remains spectacular. We’re honouring the world’s best mid-engined, top-level performance machines here. Have a look at these best Australian super cars-
The McLaren 720S has ascended to the top of our supercar class list, where both of its predecessors (the 650S and the MP4-12C) fell short. There are few more straightforward or effective methods for automobiles in this segment of the performance car market to showcase their superiority than to accelerate faster, lap faster, and stop harder than their competitors. It’s a one-of-a-kind vehicle that also happens to be an Autocar Top Ten chart-topper, topping our list of extreme sports cars.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale
The most powerful road car in Ferrari’s history, this is a type of sequel to the LaFerrari hypercar. It’s also the car that established the fastest lap time around the Fiorano test circuit for the company. It’s a technological marvel, yet despite the added weight from the powertrain, it’s still as sharp, intuitive, engaging, and devastatingly quick as you’d expect from a Ferrari with a mid-engine. The fact that it makes for a comfortable long-distance cruiser is an additional plus, and the idea of utilising it as a zero-emissions commuting car is a fun one to consider.
Lamborghini Huracán Evo
The Huracán may be the company’s entry-level model, but it’s no slacker when it comes to stunning design or the V10’s delightfully crazy, naturally aspirated powertrain: an engine that excels in speed, responsiveness, and aural character in equal measure. Rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring are now standard on the facelifted Evo, and the effects are impressive. There’s also a rear-wheel-drive variant of the Evo. Its superb V10 produces somewhat less power than its four-wheel-drive brothers, but it gets a lot more character and dynamic appeal by removing the front driveshafts. It is without a doubt the best of the group.
This ‘third coming’ of the motorsport classic is a brilliantly constructed roadgoing replica of Ford’s World Endurance Championship racer, which was first resurrected in 2005. It features a chassis and suspension that are more unusual than nearly any competition – and an engine that was modified from the Ford F150 pick-up truck. It is only obtainable in left-hand driving. Despite its intimidating size, the GT offers a surprisingly smooth ride and is polished and simple to park for a car of its class. Its 647bhp V6 can still throw you down the road with unadulterated motorsport fury, even if it doesn’t howl like an Italian V12. This is a really rare automobile, and the likes of it don’t come along very frequently.
To win this class, you must show that your designers and engineers can handle an intrinsically difficult dynamic brief, withstand the rigours of fierce competition, and satisfy some of the industry’s most demanding clients. Hopefully, our information on Australian supercars has been helpful.
