10 Supercars Every Bro Dreams Of

We like cars just as much as we like women and today we’ve decided to show you the 10 most extraordinary supercars that probably every bro dreams of. These four wheel masterpieces are more eye catching than the world’s hottest women and if I were to choose between a owning Bugatti Veyron and dating Cheryl Tweedy for example I’d probably go for the supercar.

Actually no, Cheryl Tweedy is rich enough to buy me any supercar I want if I’d please her right and I would probably do that really well. Tough choice. Anyway, back to supercars. Cars are the best fashion accessory and probably every man dreams of having one of the world’s most powerful and most attractive cars.

We’ve selected only 10 and it’s not really a top because they’re all almost equally attractive.

Lexus LF-A

Lexus LF-A 1

The Lexus LF-A is the single most baffling car of 2009, maybe even the decade. It’s also possibly the best Japanese car but, seeing as it costs a comical $375,000, perhaps it’s the worst. God knows, it may even be both. This is a carbon-fibre-bodied, mid-engined supercar, powered by a 552bhp 4.8-litre V10 engine, that can rip to 62mph in 3.7sec and on to a 202mph top speed. The LF-A is a more chunky Transformer than curvy Megan Fox.

Porsche Carrera GT

Porsche Carrera GT 1

The Porsche Carrera GT is probably 100 years of human achievement crammed into three cubic feet of titanium, magnesium, aluminium and raw, unadulterated, visceral, screaming power.  Powered by a heart made of pure fire, a V10 engine with 612 bhp, this incredible supercar is able to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds and it could reach a top speed of 205 mph.

Bentley Continental Supersports

Bentley Continental Supersports 1

Bentley are well known for their fine quality limos but they decided to use their experience to make a monstrously capable supercar. The Bentley Continental Supersports is a lightened two-seater version of the Bentley Continental with a 621HP twin-turbo W12 engine, a top speed of 204mph and an ability to get from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds.

Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce

Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce 1

The Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce is the fastest and most pure sports car ever to roll out of the Italian car icon’s factory. The car looks incredible, needless to say. It looks like the birth-child of Darth Vader and a Euro Fighter. Or in other words absolutely evil and aggressive. With its 670 HP V12 engine this car is able to sprint to 62 mph from standstill in just 3.2 seconds and it could reach a breahtaking top speed of 212 mph.

McLaren MP4-12C

McLaren MP4-12 1

The McLaren MP4-12C is the next chapter in McLaren’s supercardom story. The car was revealed just a couple of months ago and it already seems to be one of the best supercars ever! The MP4-12C is able to crack the 62 mph mark in “under three seconds” and its 0-124 mph time is “under 10 seconds”. Its top speed wasn’t even announced yet but it’s probably going to be well over 200 mph.

Ferrari 458 Italia

Ferrari 458 Italia 1

The Ferrari 458 Italia is the stallion’s fastest road-going car yet and one of the most beautiful Ferraris ever. The car was designed by the famous Italian design company Pininfarina and besides being extremetely eye catching and aggressive, this car also slices through air more efficiently than any other Ferrari. With a top speed of 203mph, and a 0-60mph time of just 3.4sec, this is the fastest road-going Ferrari to date.

Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang 1

The Bugatti Veyron might be the definition of perfection when we’re talking about supercars. It started from one man’s dream to brake the 250 mph barrier who wanted a car with 1,000 HP and asked his engineers to glue together two Audi V8 engines to create a W16. This was then garnished with four superchargers and produced as much power as the earth’s core. And also as much heat. His enginers were horrified but somehow they managed to cool down this monster with 10 radiators. Thanks to its massive power and perfect aerodynamics it can do 252 mph. 0 to 62 mph time – ONLY 2.5 seconds. It’s top speed means this road going car is faster than a F1 car and it’s even faster than a lot of small planes too.

Mercedes SLS AMG

Mercedes SLS AMG 1

Mercedes has dusted down one if its most fascinating cars, the 1954 300 SL Gullwing for inspiration for the new Mercedes SLS AMG and it paid off beautifully. The result is a modern sports car which is Neither retro nor ultra-modern and it fuses some old-school details with more contemporary touches. Powered by a 6.3L V8 engine with 571 HP, the SLS AMG can reach 62 mph from standstill in 3.7 seconds and a top speed which was electronically limited to 197 mph.

Audi R8 V10

Audi R8 V10 1

This is an outstanding-looking car: low-slung and sharply executed, the Audi R8 could leave anyone underwhelmed. The R8 is like a jewel and its distinctive side blades and eye catching LED lights are just the  mini cherries on the top of the regular cherry on the top of the sundae of hotness, that is this car. Audi can feel a little smug about its trademark 518bhp, 5.2-litre V10 engine, capable of 0-62mph in 3.9sec and a top speed of 197mph.

Aston Martin One-77

Aston Martin One-77 1

Aston Martin One-77 is one of the most beautiful and also most exclusive cars in the world. Exclusivity for one: as the name suggests, just 77 will be built, of which Aston Martin has already sold more than 50 before anyone outside the company has driven it. It has a gargantuan 7.3-litre engine generating more than 700bhp, more than any roadgoing Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche has produced. The One-77 can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in less than 3.5 seconds and it could reach a breathtaking top speed of 220 mph! The One-77 is more than the ultimate Aston: it is the company’s claim to a place at the supercar top table.
