Top 10 Best Supercars & Exotics Of 2015

Top 10 Supercars Of 2015 – The Coolest, Best & Most Exciting Cars In The World This Year

Another year down and another year of amazing supercars. The best supercars of 2015 were an impressive bunch of cars. We definitely had no trouble find cool and exciting cars in 2015. 

Both Ferrari and McLaren tweaked their hypercars in 2015 to create the most track-tailored and most powerful models possible. With no need to be tied down by homologation rules or legislations for road use, both the Ferrari FXX K and McLaren P1 GTR are track-only masterpieces that take the best supercars of 2013 and amp them up to 500. Another track-only hypercar that surprised us this year was the Aston Martin Vulcan. Limited to 24 examples worldwide it is an 8006 bhp, all-carbon fiber Aston and there is nothing ever wrong with that. 

The most exciting cars for me this year were all Porsches. The Mission E concept car from Porsche shows us the future of electric performance cars from the company that does performance better than anybody else. I hope they make it, I really do. Speaking of cars I hope they make, please please please make the Ford GT. It is the most uniquely designed supercar I have seen in a decade and it is clearly focused on winning races. The Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 is the other concept we fell in love with this year and our sources say it is basically a prelude to the upcoming Continental GT redesign. 

New supercars models this year included the Ferrari 458 replacement, the 488 GTB. Gone is the epic naturally aspirated engine, in its place a 3.9 liter cc V8 turbo good for 660 hp. McLaren revealed the first in its Sports Series family: the McLaren 570S Coupé which is priced to get 911 Turbo owners to make the move to McLaren. The Acura NSX was also launched this year after what seems like 10 years of delays. 

Let’s take a minute to talk about special edition models. The McLaren 675LT is an awesome, track-focused, yet road legal monster with a historic name and tremendous performance. The Cayman GT4 is perfect. It has a 3.8-liter flat-six engine with 385 hp and a sweet six-speed manual gearbox and 911 GT3 suspension. What else could you ever need? Well if you’re into Porsche’s maybe the brand new 911 GT3 RS. The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter engine has 493 hp. 

As always, enjoy our top 10 best supercar and driving car list for 2015. This year we managed to keep our top 10 list at around 22 cars (what can we say, there are just too many good cars being made these days).

Lamborghini Aventador SV

More power. More aggression. More insanity

With increased power, lower weight, improved aerodynamics and innovative technologies the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date: unmistakable Lamborghini super sports car DNA, dynamic superiority and exceptional driving precision. A focus on weight reduction while incorporating innovative technologies has resulted in the most sports-oriented, fastest and most emotional series production Lamborghini ever. The weight has been further reduced by 50 kg through enhanced lightweight engineering including significant use of carbon fiber. The naturally aspirated V12 engine’s power is increased to 552 kW/750 hp. This results in a power-to-weight-ratio of 2,03 kg/hp. The Superveloce accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and powers on to reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h (more than 217 mph). Learn more…

Audi R8 V10

Second generation R8 V10

We were super impressed by the Audi R8 E-Tron Quattro that was teased this year, but top spot for our favorite Audi of 205 has to go to the second generation of the V10 R8. The R8 V10 Plus is the top model in the R8 line among V8 and fully electric-drive variants. It features as standard most of the features available for the R8 and a fixed wing made from CFRP.

Ferrari FXX K

Maximum track performance

Unfettered by homologation and racing regulations, the FXX K will never be used in competition. It was, in fact, developed to be completely uncompromising, incorporating technological innovations that will guarantee an unprecedented driving experience to the exclusive group of Client-Test Drivers with whom the Prancing Horse will roll out a test programme over the coming two years. The car’s enormous potential is attested to by two significant figures: a total power output of 1050 cv (860 cv delivered by its conventional V12 engine and 190 by its electric motor) and maximum torque in excess of 900 Nm.

McLaren P1 GTR

For those who think the P1 was too soft

The engine is the F12berlinetta’s 6,262 cc 65° V12 on which Ferrari engineers worked to boost maximum power output to 770 bhp @ 8500 rpm , yielding a specific power output of 122.96 bhp per liter. The engine’s sporty response is assured by a maximum torque figure 520.0 ft lbs @ 6750 rpm with 80% already available at 2,500 rpm, resulting in unparalleled, progressive pick-up all the way to the red-line at 8,900 rpm.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Our favorite 911 bar none

Porsche launched the RennSport version of the 911 GT3 at the Geneva Motor Show in 2015.

Porsche Cayman GT4

Absolutely perfect 

In 2015, Porsche announced the car the supercar community thought they would never build. It was the first time Porsche allowed its Porsche Motorsport division in Weissach to sprinkle some magic on a production Cayman since the mid-engine sports car’s introduction ten years previously. They did not let us down. With components sourced from the 911 GT3, an engine carried over from a Carrera S and a tweaked and tuned chassis, brakes and aerodynamics, Porsche’s engineers did their best to produce the perfect mid-engine sports car for road and track use. The GT4’s 3.8-litre flat-six engine produces 385 hp (283 kW) and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox with dynamic gearbox mounts and harder settings optimize the handling of the Cayman for a more dynamic driving experience. Compared with the standard Cayman, the GT4’s chassis was lowered by 30mm and bigger brakes were added, with many aspects of its suspension carried over from the 911 GT3.
