You could have removed the 458, Galardo and the Ford GT which aren't supercars, at least in my book, if not even the 599 GTO, the Murcielago and possibly the LFA as well. Same would have been for the ReventÚn. that tends to exclude the Ascari KZ1 too then. A10 perhaps.
The Koenigsegg Agera is stilla show car, while the One-77 is yet to be tested by a non-AM personality, so difficult to really express an opinion if not on the look (hail to the Aston!).
The Zenvo ST1 was just driven once and briefly by a journalist, and I'm not sure if it will eventually reach production.
a.d. Tramontana R comes to mind as a more credited option (at least it was produced in a few units).
Not so sure on the Noble as well.

Why not the SSC Aero?!

Koenigsegg CCX, Ferrari Enzo and F50 (just to add only the more recent cars from Maranello), Bugatti EB 110 and Jaguar XJ220 should have been in the list. Personally I'm a bit against comparing cars from such a larger different time frame, but since the F1 was already there...

How could you miss it in the poll...

a bit of "apples to oranges", but to be fairI didn't enjoy all his polls and threads.

Or maybe it's the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. Oh no wait, that's not in the poll either.

I'm all for activity and discussion in the forums, but this isn't it...

We could create a internet-long poll to list our favorite (super)cars, but I'd be happy with something at least homogeneous in its limited approach.

I have a soft spot for the green Maserati V4, talking about very old school cars.

300 SL was a mass produced car. MB's goal was to make as many as they could sell.

I think "super car" needs to be something that is intended to be sold only in limited quantities; whether it's like the 599GTO where they only intend to sell 599 of them, or the SSC Aero or Pagani where they haven't limited production, but only intend to sell a very limited amount.

Not sure if "limited" and "super" are supposed to be the same. A limited edition Lotus Exige (not considering stickers and different paint jobs) doesn't make it any mroe "super" despite surely being capable of more powerful and famous cars.

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.

Prewar? The frenchies were quite good at this sort of thing. I'm the Bugatti and Talbot-Lago camp.

What about the Miura? That wasn't really a limited production car, and it's quite super.

I have to say, I'm with Damiano on that one.

Delahaye 135 then, see avatar on the left.

The Miura is indeed super, but not in the "supercar" way. It surely was among the fastest thing you could buy, but the point is actually something over the competition in term of look (not saying it looks better, which it maybe does), technical solutions and so on.
Even if I reckon this would call in the ReventÚn, I think that car suffers from poor execution and worse marketing. Just saw one this Sunday, don't know which number but I'll check my pics, and it wasn't as interesting as the two Miuras next to it or as the Diablo GT. Thats another super car.
Unfortunately the SV670-4 lacks this same flavor.

Holy shit, Someone remembered to include the Noble M600! That is a truly beastly car, and I would gladly own that car over every car on that list. It is hardcore, it is very much a purist's car. I mean, it has an old fashioned manual 6 speed gearbox, no ABS, minimalist traction control, steel brakes, its outdated! and because of that it is a thrilling car. I love it. The only way it has points against it is in the looks department. It is lacking alot in that field. Its pretty dull compared to say a Veyron, or the One77.

Well if it had been on the list I would have been voting for the Ferrari F40. However as it was missing I chose the Veyron Super Sport. The F1 was a close second but being that super cars are by nature just stupidly powerful, impractical and expensive cars the Bugatti just seemed right.
