A term coined by motoring journalists to define extremely expensive, beautiful and fast cars. Supercars are heavy on fuel and cost an alsolute bomb to maintain. They are created as both high-performance track cars and head-turners. Supercars are very aerodynamic.
A supercar must have a speed that will not be matched by any normal road car. This basically means faster than top-spec beamers or so. Roughyl 175mph.
Supercars are excellent in every aspect- except cost.
Notes: muscle cars are not supercars. They are just heavy on fuel. They are not fast, they are not aerodynamic, they are not nice looking, they have terrible handling.
Tuned up sports cars are not supercars. They will fuck out quickly because they have the lifespan of a house-fly.
NSX or similar are not supercars. There is no such thing as a cut price supercar.
To qualify, modern supercars would have to be around the 200mph mark. As you may notice, this does not automatically include all ferrari's. The 166 inter struggled to make 100mph.
A supercar is something that few people will ever drive, and fewer will even own. Basically, unless it smokes practically everything that isn't tuned to fuck, it's good.
