Readers only have to take a moment to look around on this blog to see how much we love supercars. Our team as written about the latest releases for a long time now, and we wanted to have some fun today. In this post, we’ve narrowed down all the reviews and road tests we’ve undertaken during the last few years. Today, we’re going to present you with the top three supercars we all wish we could afford in 2017. Maybe some of you have enough cash in the bank? Most of you won’t have because these machines cost some serious bucks. Still, it’s nice to daydream from time to time.
It should come as no surprise to any readers that McLaren makes the top spot on this list. Their 650S model is a wonder to behold. The car comes with a twin-turbo V8 engine that makes some serious noise. It also makes light work of the 641 bhp available. As if that wasn’t enough, this machine can reach speeds of 0 mph to 60 mph in less than three seconds! Just imagine how that feels when you’re in the cab and pushed back into your seat. If money were no object, most of us would head out right now and visit a McLaren dealer. Depending on which seller you select, you might end up paying over $300,000. That’s the price of an average house in Australia!
Ferrari 488 GTB
We couldn’t possibly create a list of desirable supercars without giving an honorable mention to Ferrari. The company has produced some of the most iconic designs of our generation, and they don’t plan to stop anytime soon. The 488 GTB has seven gears, a turbocharged engine, and a stylish interior. Taking it around the track is always fun because it handles better than anything else mentioned on this list. Unlike the McLaren, this Ferrari is a little quiet. However, it’s still louder and more aggressive than anything on their neighbor’s driveway. Specialists from Cars & Co say you’re probably not going to find one of these on the private market. Anyone with enough cash will have to call Ferrari and join a waiting list.
Porsche 911 GT3
No supercar article is complete without a Porsche. The 911 has been in production for longer than most people care to remember. It’s featured in some of the coolest movies during the last forty years. The GT3 model has a rear engine, and it handles like a dream. The 3.8-litre engine gives drivers somewhat of a knockout punch at full acceleration. Few supercars at any price are more engaging than this model. Also, it’s nowhere near as expensive at the McLaren. People in Australia can get hold of a new Porsche 911 GT3 for around $190,000.
Those were our top three supercars for 2017. If you had the money, we think you’d probably select something from this list. Of course, finding somewhere to use the cars to their full potential is another matter. If anyone spends over $100,000 on a car, it’s probably sensible not to use it every day. Still, there are many tracks around where anyone can book a session on the tarmac. The chances of us ever buying those vehicles are slim, but it doesn’t hurt to daydream every now and again.
