Super, in my book, is something that's definitely not necessary, over the line. Now that I think about it, it's very similar to the latin meaning of the word.
I wouldn't cite it as the only criteria, but I think it plays an important part. Maybe we need to invent new terms: a 458 or Gallardo or 300SL is a 'super car' while an Enzo or a McLaren F1 is a 'hyper car'.
