Best supercars of 2013

With only a couple of days left until our calendars will show us a new year, time has come to talk about the best supercars of 2013.

Ferrari LaFerrari

One of the hottest supercars of 2013, and not only, is definitely the Ferrari LaFerrari. This is the company’s first ever hybrid supercar and it was officially unveiled during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Power is being provided by a 6.3 liter V12 engine, with 800 HP (588 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. The supercar is also getting an electric motor, with 163 HP (120 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque. The total output produced is 963 HP (708 kW). The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes less than 3 seconds and top speed stands at 350 km/h (217 mph).

McLaren P1

The McLaren P1 has made its way onto this list too and this is a competitor to the Ferrari LaFerrari. The British supercar has been unveiled during the same 2013 Geneva Motor Show and it’s getting an upgraded 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo petrol burner under its hood, which is also used on the MP4-12C and 12C Spider. This is also backed up by an electric motor and the total output produced stands at 903 HP and 978 Nm of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes 2.8 seconds and top speed stans at 350 km/h (217 mph).

Porsche 918 Spyder

The second competitor of the Ferrari LaFerrari, and also the McLaren P1, is named the Porsche 918 Spyder. The model has been unveiled, in its final production form, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in September. Power is being provided by a 4.6 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, backed up by two electric motors, each on one axle. The total output developed is 887 HP (652 kW) and 1,289 Nm (944 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint is made in 2.6 seconds and top speed stands at 345 km/h (214 mph).

Lamborghini Huracan

The Lamborghini Huracan is the official replacement of the Gallardo. The model in question has been officially unveiled just a couple of weeks ago and it hasn’t been tested by the automotive media just yet. The supercar is getting an updated 5.2 liter V10 engine under its hood, which is producing 610 HP (448 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 3.2 seconds and top speed achieved is 325 km/h (202 mph).

Lamborghini Veneno and Veneno Roadster

The Lamborghini Veneno has first seen daylight during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The supercar in question has been made in a very limited number and as exclusivity doesn’t come cheap, we won’t dare talk about its price. The Veneno is taking its power from a 6.5 liter V12 engine, producing 740 HP (552 kW) and it’s based on the Aventador. Lamborghini is offering the Veneno in two body styles, Coupe and Roadster, both of them getting a mid-engine and an all-wheel drive layout.

Lamborghini Gallardo Squadra Corse

Officially unveiled during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Lamborghini Gallardo Squadra Corse is based on the Gallardo Super Trofeo and it has received a prominent rear wing, a quick release engine cover, carbon ceramic brakes, Alcantara wrapped dashboard, lightweight racing seats, carbon fiber trim and more. The V10 engine found under its good is now producing 570 HP (419 kW) and the 6-speed e-gear transmission is sending power to the all-wheel drive system. The Squadra Corse can reach 100 km/h from a standstill in just 3.4 seconds and top speed is 320 km/h (199 mph).

Ferrari 458 Speciale

The official successor of the F430 Scuderia and 360 Challenge, the Ferrari 458 Speciale, has seen daylight during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The supercar has received the Slip Angle Control system, amongst others, and its 4.5 liter V8 engine is producing a total output of 597 HP (445 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 3 seconds.

Koenigsegg Agera S

Koenigsegg has officially pulled the wraps off the impressive Agera S model this year too. The model in question has the most upgrades and it’s running on low octane gas, producing 1,030 HP and 1,100 Nm, compared to the 960 HP and 1,100 Nm of the Agera R, when running on the same fuel. Power is being provided by a 5.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine. An Agera S has been recently sold in Singapore for a whopping 4.2 million USD.

Lykan Hypersport

W Motors’ Lykan Hypersport is the first Arabian supercar. The model in question has been unveiled during the 2013 Dubai International Motor Show and it’s coming in two versions, the Supersport and the Hypersport. Both of them are riding on the same platform and they are getting an engine made by the famous Porsche tuner, RUF. The unit in question is a 3.7 liter flat six-cylinder, with 750 HP. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes less than 3 seconds and top speed stands at 394 km/h (245 mph).
