HypercarsEdit

44a

The term hypercar has been used to describe the highest-performing supercars. For example, the Ferrari Enzo[1]. On Series 13, Episode 02 of Top Gear a drag race was made between a hypercar, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition and a less-expensive supercar, Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SV. Another drag race was made between new hypercar, Bugatti Veyron and older hypercar, McLaren F1. Specifically, it is used to refer to next generation supercars.[2] Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson defines the following difference between supercars and hypercars (season 9 episode 5): "Supercars are designed to be very, very fast, drivers cars above all. Hypercars are designed to show off, turn heads, and be as flamboyantly exotic as possible, which is why Lambos have always been more exotic than Ferraris but they have always paled in performance..." Hypercars tend to be high horsepower cars with a supercharging or turbocharging systems[3]; they are also 240 MPH plus cars (McLaren F1 setting the top speed standard for 12 years[4]). The cost of a Hypercar can vary between $500,000 to no limit[5]. The idea of the Hypercar has been floating around for many years such as Ford's GT90[6] concept and the McLaren F1, but production of these cars has only come about in recent years. Hypercars are produced by a production car company, but some companies like Underground Racing[7] take regular Supercars like Lamborghini Gallardo (200 mph car), and give them Hypercar quality such as their 250 MPH Twin-Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo[8][9
