The limited-edition McLaren 675LT is officially sold out!
Despite being a barely road-legal track car with a £260,000 ($400,000) asking price and one yet to start production, the Woking, Surrey-based supercar builder has announced that all 500 planned examples have already been snapped up.
But don’t worry if you missed out on the chance to own one, there’s still plenty out there that can keep up with McLaren’s latest dream machine.
The Ferrari 488 GTB ($250,000)
The latest masterpiece from Maranello also boasts a turbocharged V8 engine that can deliver 661bhp and, like the McLaren, the Ferrari 488 GTB can hit speeds in excess of 330km/h and cover the all-important 0-100km/h dash in under 3 seconds.
However, although the car will be a lot less exotic on the roads once deliveries start, it’s also much more comfortable for longer journeys.
The Lamborghini Huracán ($241,000)
Lamborghini likes to do things differently so while all the other supercar makers are experimenting with turbochargers, the raging bull is sticking firmly with a normally aspirated V10 for its latest model.
There is no noticeable lag from the 610bhp engine when burying your foot in the carpet although it is very slightly slower off the mark – 3.2 seconds to hit 100km/h but the car will go on to hit nearly 330km/h and that four-wheel-drive system will make sure it stays glued to the road.
Aston Martin V12 Vantage S ($185,000)
It may be starting to show its age from a technological standpoint but the baby Aston Martin is still a head turner. It trumps the competition in terms of cylinders, too. It has a huge 6-liter V12 calling the shots which takes a moment to rumble into life – 3.9 seconds, 0-100km/h but it is still the fastest production Aston in history with a top speed of 330km/h.
Porsche 911 Turbo S ($182,700)
Porsche has always been of the opinion that small and light trumps big and powerful every time and 50 years on, the formula is still working.
The Turbo S only has a 560bhp on tap from its flat 6-cylinder 3.8-liter turbocharged engine but that’s enough to get the car from 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds and on to a top speed of 318km/h. What it loses in top speed it makes up for in practicality. This really can be used as a daily driver.
Nissan GT-R ($120,000)
The supercar for the PlayStation generation might not be to everyone’s tastes. But, if being the fastest off the line is the biggest reason for owning a car, then nothing beats the Nissan’s time of 2.7 seconds to 100km/h this side of a Bugatti Veyron. Its V6 turbocharged engine produces a minimum of 550bhp and like the Porsche it will achieve a top speed of 318km/h, even with two adults in the back and a trunk full of luggage.
