Top Gear’s Top Five Supercars
Ferrari 458 Speciale
Specs: 597bhp, 398lb ft, 0-62mph 3.0secs, VMax 202mph, 19.9mpg, CO2 275g/km
We still think the standard 458 Italia is something special, but the, er, Speciale is even more, er, special. The most vibrant, intoxicating supercar on sale today, in fact.
Specs: 650bhp, 500lb ft, 0-62mph 3.0secs, VMax 207mph, 24.2mpg, CO2 275g/km
The finest British supercar in many, many years. Probably ever, in fact. Newly uprated twin-turbo V8 delivers Maranello-crushing pace. Jolly good.
Specs: 730bhp, 508lb ft, 0-62mph 3.1secs, VMax 211mph, 18.8mpg, CO2 350g/km
The replacement for the awesome 599 is smaller and lighter, but even more powerful and faster. Erk. As good as front-engined, V12 Ferrariness gets. And it gets pretty damn good.
Specs: 650bhp, 604lb ft, 0-62mph 3.0secs, VMax 225mph, n/a mpg, CO2 n/a g/km
Built in a shed in Leicester around the engine from a Volvo XC90. Doesn’t sound too promising, but the Noble is as scarily scintillating as nude wrestling, yet friendly, too.
Specs: 610bhp, 413lb ft, 0-62mph 3.2secs, VMax 202mph, 22.6mpg, CO2 290g/km
Lambo’s answer to the 458 and 650S. It’s very good, but… well, it doesn’t deliver the knockout blow we hoped it would. Make it madder please, Lambo.
