My cliche list of supercars.

- Enzo
- Carrera GT
- McLaren F1
- Pagani Zonda
- Bugatti Veyron

In reality...my list is...
- Mclaren F1...can you believe the car was originally made in 1992!!! Still to this day it is one of the most preffered supercars.
- Corvette Z06...its amazing how it performs so well and beats big names like Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini.
- Ferrari F430 - Supercar or not...its one of the sexiest looking cars ever and it sounds soooo nice!
- Bugatti Veyron...I dont know why this is on my list...I hate it!...but god dammnit, its an engineering masterpiece!
-F40 or Lamborgini Countach...I think both of these cars started the new era of "Supercar Craze" Its hard to pick just one to be on my list.

The Lamborghini Countach is from 1974 and the Ferrari F40 from 1987, they are 13 years apart, so not really from the same era...

I'll have to take back my nomination on NSX. After serious thoughts, NSX and the likes of Corvette, TVR etc should not be regarded as supercars, even if they came stock with 1000hp and 2.0sec 0-100kmh performance. Cheap interiors and other sensible thoughts just left them back as a very powerful and capable Hyundai Coupe.

Certain marques had certainly hit the right spot with extravagant interiors, ridiculous pricing and authentic styling -> Pagani Zonda. They've really slotted themselves into the top league with the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini.

The NSX was hand made...and was one of the first to use an aluminum body. Much more then a hyundai coupe.

Lamborghinis now have Audi dashes, doesn that mean they aren't supercars?

Hand made? everything was hand made, assisted by machines.

Lambo dash - That's a lame argument.

Nope, it makes Audis supercars. Especially Audis equipped with the venerable 20 valve turbo.

TVRs were more "hand made" than any modern Lamborghini.

They also were not usually filled to the gills with "sensible thoughts".
