Whether we can afford them or not, supercars are the ultimate boys’ (and girls’) toys. Next to a regular Volvo or a Ford Fiesta, supercars look like sleek-bodied Gods, serving as a statement of our style, status – and ability to save up our spare pennies for more than just a few months.
Boosted to the rafters with specific features such as ultra-precise handling capabilities, intricate engines and top-notch aerodynamics, supercars are what we all lust after. Here are the top supercars of 2015 that we need in our lives:
Bugatti Veyron La Finale
If you’re going to end production of Bugatti Veyron vehicles, you might as well go out in style. Luckily, that’s exactly what the Bugatti Veyron La Finale does, even if it does look like a vehicular version of Antman. The sexy AF red and black machine is also the fastest production supercar ever created in the world, reaching a top speed of over 250 mph. The bad news for petrol-heads? Only 450 units of the car were ever produced, and they’ve all been sold. Nevermind, it’s not like any of us could afford the £1.7 million price tag, right?
Aston Martin DB10
This sleek-as-a-bullet car wouldn’t look out of place in a James Bond film, which is handy because it was especially designed to feature in the next film, Spectre. While only 10 units have been made for the film, don’t fret; the company’s releasing 150 DB9 GT vehicles, each equipped with features designed to make you feel like a British Secret Service agent in your own right.
As well as hiding a 6.0-litre V12 engine under the bonnet, the vehicles are also equipped with ‘007 Bond Edition’ badging, ten-spoke gloss black diamond turned 20-inch alloy wheels and a touch-sensitive infotainment system. And compared to other supercars on this list, the DB9 is relatively affordable at £165,000.
nanoFlowcell Quant F Electric Sportscar
Running on nanoFlowcell® battery, with bigger door mirrors, a new colour scheme and a new wheel design, the nanoFlowcell Quant F Electric four-seater sportscar is a step up from its predecessor. 80s fans will surely love its retro gull wing design, while those with a head for speed will lap up the 186 mph top speed. Even those with no interest in supercars will turn green with envy when they take a look at the smooth ash interior.
Ferrari 488 GTB
Combining sexy lines with concave shapes that put Eddie Redmayne’s cheekbones to shame, the 488 GTB goes from 0 to 62mph in just three seconds, putting it right up there in terms of our top supercars of 2015. And those curved appendages aren’t just to look good – the supercar is ultra aerodynamic, accelerating the air and reducing pressure. We want.
Porsche 918 Spyder
Porsche proudly assert the 918 Spyder is heralding the future of the sports car – and if all future sports cars were to look like this, we would be quite happy. Leaving aesthetics to one side, the Spyder uses plug-in hybrid technology and has a top speed of 210mph, which should placate the owner’s need for speed. The price for one of these babies starts at just a smidge over half a million pounds, so get saving! This one’s definitely one of our top supercars of 2015.
