Top 5 Supercars of Today

Updated on May 28, 2014

5) Koenigsegg One:1

Having only 6 production cars which are uniquely designed and developed, and are known to have already been sold out. The One:1 is the world's first homologated production car and dubbed as the 'world's first megacar' with its unique name coming from the car's amazing power (hp) to weight (kg) ratio of 1:1. Having remodeled from the previous Agera S, improving suspension, ride hide, a new roof scoop and aerodynamics, the One:1 is able to create more downforce which raises the performance bar even higher than ever before.

Top speed : 451 km/h (280 mph)
0–100 km/h: 2.8 seconds


Named after a Mayan god of wind, storm and fire, this new upcoming model from Lamborghini is built to succeed the most produced car from Lamborghini which is the Gallardo. Having a new V10 engine with features a new combination of direct and multi-point injection, the performance and efficiency are optimized. Other than having many other improved upgrades and technologically-assisted performance, the Huracan boasts a high attention to detail in the design and interior.

Top speed : 325 km/h (202 mph)
0-100 km/h: 3.2 seconds


Despite having a hard to pronounce name, which is also a name from a 'god of the winds', the Huayra shows tremendous speed and performance and was also named "The Hypercar of the Year 2012" by Top Gear magazine. Having a twin-turbo Mercedes-AMG 60° V12 engine, and a dry sump lubrication, the car is able to have reduced turbo lag, faster response and higher engine efficiency. More importantly, the Huayra together with other cars by Pagani maintains a true image of a wallpaper supercar unlike many famous supercars today which are more commercially involved.

Top speed : 372 km/h (231 mph)
0–100 km/h: 3.3 seconds

You knew this was coming. This beast of a car is probably the next step in future hybrid car evolution/development. Using hybrid power from a twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine and uniquely developed electric motor together with Formula 1 technology, the car has 890hp and 978 Nm in total ! This car also has the option of using either the petrol engine, electric motor or a combination of both.

Top speed : 349 km/h (217 mph)
0-100 km/h: 2.8 seconds

Yes i saved the best for last :) Another hybrid supercar just like the McLaren P1, the LaFerrari is the first mild hybrid car from Ferrari and possesses one of the highest power output while decreasing fuel consumption by 40%. Having a KERS system which adds additional bursts of power together with the power of both engines gives this car a mind-blowing 950 bhp and over 900 Nm in total ! Other uniquely designed materials, electronics and aerodynamics also help improve the car to it's maximum performance. The LaFerrari definately pushes the level of what hybrid supercars can achieve and gives a glimpse of how much further cars in the future can develop.

Top speed : 350 km/h (217 mph)
0-100 km/h: 2.8 seconds
