What makes supercars ,   super cars ?

What makes  super carssuper cars ? Well I guess performance  in terms of speed has something to do with it , but performance is relative . A  super car  built in the 1950s or 1960s  with a V6 engine may not be able to match even some of our cars on the road  today , say for example the latest  V6  Yoyota Camry  . So therefore performance is relative depending upon the period we are referring to . But back then , these cars are the fastest supercars at that time or period .

 

Super cars | 200mph

 

In today’s car technology , to qualify as a supercar , the car needs to demonstrate a top speed beyond 200Mph .  To achieve this 200mph , several key areas  of engineering is required . First would be the engine technology to deliver the required torque and revs needed . Engine needs to be compact  , light weight , but yet delivers a ferocious and  enormous  power .

Material and engineering technology

The kerb (Curb) weight needs to be as low as possible and this may require special carbon fibre technology to give the car the needed hardness , rigidity and strength , replacing the good old aluminium on the chasis and car body . The car needs to have superb aerodynamics to reduce friction and drag  to allow it to glide effortlessly .

With all this superb technology and engineering  designs and studies , couple with low volume ,  the super car definitely must cost a lot higher than ordinary vehicles .

In the 1990s , we had the Honda NSX which at that time was able to match that of the Ferrari  348 . But somehow Honda just would not want to pursue that route and the NSX was left to die a natural death . Without enhancement , modifications and improvements on the car , it just would not be able to match the later European cars that come about , such as the Ferraris 355 and the Porsche 911s

Today we may not have Honda in the super car league , but we still have the Lexus LFA and Nissan GT-R , which are Japanese , pitting against the well established European brands such as Ferraris , lamborghinis , Mercedes , Maseratti  , Porsche & Koenigsegg

 

Super Cars | Conclusions

Super cars are very fast cars which are focussed primarily on speed  . This is the  primary purpose of a super car . Everything else seems secondary such as comfort , fuel economy , style and price . For super cars , all the technology , design and engineering activities centred around ONE main objective , speed !!
