Best supercars 2021

The 10 best supercars on sale today offer performance, thrills and outstanding style

If you're desperately keen to show the world that you're doing very well for yourself, one way of doing it is having a supercar on your driveway. However, owning a truly great supercar also shows petrolheads you have an excellent taste. These cars could never be described as cheap or affordable, but in return for your hard earned money, they offer you exceptional performance, luxurious finish and the power to turn heads wherever you go.

Supercars come from all kinds of manufacturers. Established brands like Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren and Lamborghini have been producing supercars for years, but nowadays they face challenges from the likes of the Lexus LFA and BMW i8.

Whoever makes them, all supercars have fearsome price tags and typically cost a fortune to run. But the trade-off is scintillating performance and the capacity to get the adrenaline flowing: it’s not unusual for a supercar to top 200mph these days, and 0-62mph times of under three seconds are becoming commonplace.

Experiencing that level of acceleration is a thrill that never fades for a supercar’s owner, but the enjoyment that supercars create for those who can’t afford them is plain to see, too. That’s because we can all enjoy their outlandish and beautiful bodywork and spine-tingling exhaust notes on the occasions they drive past. In fact, there’s not much that stirs the soul of a petrolhead more than seeing and hearing a Ferrari, Lamborghini or McLaren rocketing past.

Our top 10 features supercars that really do tick all of the boxes - they are powerful, packed with tech, stunning to look at and, importantly, still great to live with day-to-day. We think the car that manages this best is the superb McLaren 720S. However, Porsche, Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Ferrari are also storied names in the supercar world, and their cars play a major part in this list...
