Supercars are the engineering feat of only a dozen manufacturers worldwide. They are known for their power, speed and ability to attract the attention of nearly everyone on the highway. Supercars are usually lighter than some normal cars also the aerodynamics of the supercars are almost always better than normal cars, the reason most people want supercars because they look and sound extraordinary, and they drive chicks wild unlike normal cars. The criteria that designate supercars are performance, brand, styling, rarity or design.
They are strictly governed in all aspects of performance in an effort to keep all the drivers on an even footing to create closer, more exciting racing. All rounds include practice, qualifying, and racing in some form. Many supercars nowadays are built and designed for every day driving, in addition to racing.
Ferrari might be being cute about the environment at the moment but not even the famous marque can ignore the global pressure to reduce vehicle emissions. The head of Ferrari has told journalists at the 2008 Paris motor show that the company's supercars produce fewer total emissions than Toyota's petrol-electric Prius. So the net effect of Ferrari on global warming is less than a Prius.
The acceleration for virtually all today’s supercars speeds up from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) under 5 seconds – for example Bugatti Veyron. As far as handling is concerned, supercars are built to offer the maximum in matters of road grip and cornering speeds. Majority of Supercars are hand-made, tailored and designed to push the limits of speed.
Lamborghini, meanwhile, has not focused so much on winning races and meditating on past glories. Lamborghini's Murcielago, which replaced the Diablo a few years ago, sports a 6. Recently, car makers have been building new engines with all-wheel-drive because they perform a lot more power – like in the case of the Lamborghini Murcielago.
Supercars are expected to carry a high price tag, a racing reputation and a well-known name. A supercar is a high end sports car and usually factory built and not modified by it’s owner. A supercar is unlikely to ever be mass-produced.
