Let's get a conversation going regarding the world’s top exotic cars. I am going to start the debate by noting some obvious examples included in this issue:
The Audi R8 V 10....610 hp
The BMW i8...357 hp
The Bugatti Chiron...1479 hp
The Bentley Continental GT Speed...633 hp
Price is irrelevant in all of these examples. Some have considerably more comfort and are more easily "drivable” and one uses hybrid electronic propulsion. One is a drivable sports car with no apologies. What do you think- interested?
Here are a few more examples for your consideration:
The Ferrari LaFerrari Convertible...788 hp
The Ford GT... 647 hp
The Koenigsegg Agera RS ...1160 hp
The Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4...759 hp
Styling, history, provenance, and EXOTIC design characteristics are among some of the arguments favoring this quartet. Once again, skip the price consideration, but remain flexible on getting in, and once there .....hang on!
Next, consider the following new exotic supercars noted for their performance, as well as design. Be sure to take careful consideration of the superior characteristics of what goes under the hood (bonnet).
The McLaren P1...903 hp
The Ferrari 812 Superfast... 789 hp
This list includes two of the newest entries in the super exotic marketplace, each with strong heritage coupled with the current design and mechanical superiority.
None of these “road experiences” come for nothing. Each in its own way is worth way more than the price. All may be found by contacting the dealers noted in this issue. They are all desirable, and this extraordinary list gets bigger with the personal taste of every enthusiast. What's your taste? Send me a text or email, with a picture. And most of all ...
