The best supercars of 2018?
As 2018 draws to a close, we thought we’d take a look at some of the Supercars that hit the market this year and share 5 of the best.
With so many superb cars to choose from, it’s been a hard decision to pick from the most luxurious, the highest performer and the most stylish.
In no particular order we start with:
Lamborghini Huracan Performante
Ok, we know it costs a packet but if you could, you definitely would. Aside from all of the technical mechanics that makes it a physical drive, the sheer noise of the engine is enough to make some of us contemplate robbing a bank. An added extra that makes the Huracan so fantastic is that the torque is 70% available from as low as 1,000 rpm. Rapid acceleration? Absolutely in the bag!
A 5.2 litre, naturally -aspirated V10 in two power outputs with a standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic makes this little beauty stand apart from the rest. It’s agile, and like a lithe panther it’s always ready to play when asked. The interior is designed beautifully and has to be one of the best on the market right now. Some may say the exterior design isn’t quite as distinctive as its predecessor, but you can’t argue with the fact that it’s still a fantastic looking car.
Ferrari 488 GTB
It may have had turbos added but for those of you who think it may not be as pure or as exciting to drive as its predecessor, you need not worry. It’s literally a dream to drive, road or track, this little pocket rocket is insanely fast. And what’s more it’s probably more economical to run that you’d think. The exterior, sculpted in a wind tunnel, has clever aerodynamic technical details below its clean lines. One to add to the Christmas list and if you’re better half doesn’t know where to start shopping send them to H. R. Owen!
First revealed at the Detroit Motor Show back in 2015, Ford opened its books for orders it had to close them pretty quickly! More than 6,500 people applied but with a production run of just 250 cars per year it was quickly oversubscribed. And it’s easy to understand why. The car is stunningly designed, gives an undeniably smooth ride as well as a wonderful drive. Featuring carbon fibre construction and powered by a twin-turbo 3.5 litre Ecoboost V6 producing 638bhp, we don’t think Ford will be running out of orders anytime soon.

Mercedes AMG GT-R
Powered with a DOHC 4.0 litre twin turbochargedV8 that delivers 577 hp, this stunning car will achieve a top speed of 198 mph. The devil is in the detail with this supercar, focus has been concentrated on the engineering, with painstaking attention to the chassis, aerodynamics, weight reduction and structural rigidity. But all in all, it’s the way it drives that wins us over. A dynamic supercar that has terrific bite, and superb balance.
