Here we introduce some of the best supercars in history that have set incredible speed and acceleration records with their stunning technical performance!
According to many experts, the Lamborghini Miura, which came to the market in 1966, is the first supercar in history that uses a completely new engine with different efficiency instead of boosting the engine of a normal car.
Today, critics and journalists active in the automotive sector place exceptional cars with very high performance in three categories: Supercar, Hypercar and Megacar.
Of course, because there is no official definition for these three categories, the border between them is very narrow and many people use different categories interchangeably!
Supercars are generally a category of cars that use advanced and different technologies than normal cars and are generally launched with the aim of providing very high power at a staggering price.
On the other hand, hypercars are also a select group of cars in the world that offer the highest technical performance in the world. For example, Bugatti Veyron, Pagani Huayra and Ferrari LaFerrari are considered the most important hypercars in the market, which will reach customers in a very limited number and at a price above one million dollars.
Also, megacars are a rarer category than hypercars and generally have a power of more than one megawatt (1340 horsepower)! Gonigzeg Regera is one of these megacars that combines a 1100 watt internal combustion engine with a 700 hp electric motor, reaching an incredible 1500 hp!
