Supercar

A supercar – called exotic car – is a loosely defined description of certain high-performance street-legal sports car. Since the 2000s or 2010s, the term hypercar has come into use for the highest performing supercars. In the United States, muscle cars were referred to as "Supercars" during the 1960s; the Lamborghini Miura, produced from 1966–1973, is said to be the first supercar. By the 1970s and 1980s the term was in regular use, if not defined. One interpretation up until the 1990s was to use it for mid-engine two-seat cars with at least eight cylinders, a power output of at least 400 bhp and a top speed of at least 180 mph. Other interpretations state that "it must be fast, with sporting handling to match", "it should be sleek and eye-catching" and its price should be "one in a rarefied atmosphere of its own" or regard exclusivity as an important characteristic, it is claimed that the definition of a supercar has always been subjective and a matter of blind prejudice. During the 1960s, cars that are now considered to be muscle cars were referred to as supercars.

The term was spelled with a capital S. In 1966 the sixties supercar became an official industry trend. For example, the May 1965 issue of the American magazine Car Life includes multiple references to supercars and "the supercar club" and a 1968 issue of Car & Driver magazine refers to "the Supercar street racer gang" market segment. In the model name of the AMC S/C Rambler, the "S/C" is an abbreviation for "SuperCar". Since the decline of the muscle car in the 1970s, the word supercar came to mean a car in the mold of a Lamborghini or Ferrari. Other interpretations of the term are for limited-production models produced by small manufacturers for enthusiasts, standard-looking cars modified for increased performance. A more recent term for high-performance sportscars is "hypercar", sometimes used to describe the highest performing supercars; as per supercars, there is no set definition for. An attempt to define these is "a limited-production, top-of-the-line supercar with a price of around or more than US$1 million."Some people consider the 1993 McLaren F1 to be the first hypercar, while others believe the 2005 Bugatti Veyron was the first hypercar.

Many recent hypercars use a hybrid drivetrain, a trend started in 2013 by the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, LaFerrari. List of sports car manufacturers List of fastest production cars Supercar Season
