Quick Intro: Supercars Past And Present
Looking for a quick intro to supercars past and present? As works of art, science and mechanical pride, supercars past and present are breathtaking to behold. From common companies like Ford, Chevy and Dodge to the exotic supercars from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Mercedes, you certainly have your choice of favorites past and present. There is a large selection of past and present-day supercars designed for performance competition, and many were built with the consumer in mind. All supercars, past and present, are the tops of what each brand has to offer.
In the '40s, the sports car was presented to the public. Brands like Ferrari and Jaguar began to design supercars that had more power than most, and smoother fetchers for better air flow. One such car was the Ferrari F-50. Other cars, like the Mercedes 300SL, the Gull wing, had a fuel injected 240 horsepower motor that set the new challenge for power in the '50s.
With monsters in technology, like the Lamborghini 64 350GT, and classics, like the Ford GTO, where are we to go? With the challenges of fuel conservation, the creators of the Veyron have created an electric supercar with 1001 horsepower which goes from zero to 180 in fourteen seconds. Bugatti has a prototype built on the Bentley Continental GT chassis with two electric motors and a horsepower of 800. This may be the way of the future.
As technology has grown, the supercar has grown as well. Each one is great in its own way. Ranging from the expensive, exotic cars to the ones easier on the wallet, the supercars are in a class of their own. Experiencing the power and speed of supercars past and present leaves you needing more.
