Our Top 10 Best Supercars Of 2020

17 Dec 2020

In this article, we explain what makes a super, a supercar and we reveal our top 10 best supercars of 2020 so far.

Owning not just one of the best supercars in the world, but any type of supercar really is a luxury that should be cherished. The definition of what a supercar is might have changed drastically over the past few years, but making our list of the top 10 best supercars of 2020 really means that we feel like each of these premium car manufacturers and engineers has earned their place. This is by demonstrating pure skill when it comes to creating the next revolutionary car concept and design.

 
In this article, we explain what makes a car, a supercar and we reveal our top 10 best supercars of 2020.

What Makes A Car, A Supercar?

So, what really makes a car, a ‘supercar’, you ask? In a nutshell, a supercar or an exotic car is any car that is street-legal, high performing and classed as luxury. In fact, you might have even heard of some of the best supercars being referred to as ‘hypercars’ which is just another name for the top reigning supercars.
 
For a supercar to be classed as luxury, it must include high-end features that surpass the average car and high performing means it must offer a vast amount of both speed and power. To put it into perspective, the more power a supercar’s engine can deliver compared to the overall weight of the car, the more acceleration it can deliver. So, this is why you might find that most of the top 10 best supercars in our 2020 line up will have a great focus on being lightweight.

1. Ford GT

Kicking off our top 10 best supercars of 2020 lineup is the Ford GT which was specially designed and revealed back in 2015 to celebrate the original Ford GT40’s win at the Le Mans sports car race in 1966. Aside from the Ford GT’s immaculate design, it features a range of subtle similarities from the renowned Ford GT40 and is only available in left-hand drive. 
 
However, its modern side really shows as it features carbon fibre construction with a twin-turbo 3.5 litre Ecoboost V6 engine, producing a staggering 638bhp and a top speed of 216mph. The Ford GT also includes a carbon fibre tub and body, suspension that would be admired by any car racer and dihedral lifting doors. All these ‘super’ features easily justify why this rare exotic car was oversubscribed so quickly! In fact, the Ford GT supercar originally had 6,500 applicants and is only producing a limited 250 cars per year.
 
New for 2021, drivers will expect to see a range of aesthetic updates for the Ford GT, including new graphics and customisable colours. This supercar also definitely has the price tag to match its level of superior, starting at a hefty $500,000 (£386,278)!






2. Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

The next contender in our top 10 best supercars of 2020 is the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera. After reading about the Ford GT, you probably thought that a supercar engine couldn’t get any more impressive. But you are wrong! The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera features a larger twin-turbo V12 engine which holds 5.2 litres. 
 
However, this supercar is built more for travelling long distances than for racing tracks. Saying this, the engine still allows for a performance of 715bhp and a maximum speed of 211mph which is impressive for a non-racing car. This might leave you wondering how the Aston Martin DBS performs when head to head with a corner. But, this is actually where this top supercar performs its best, providing 180kg of downforce which ensures stability when travelling at top speeds. The Aston Martin DBS is available from a starting price of £225,000.




3. McLaren 720S

The next car in our top 10 best supercars of 2020, the McLaren 720S, might not be as superior as the P1 hypercar but it definitely reigns above McLaren’s previous Sports Series cars. Its name is inspired by the engine that powers it which is a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8, allowing for 720PS (710bhp). Similar to the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, the McLaren 720S is exceptional for driving long distances. This is with the help of its interconnected hydraulic suspension which helps minimise the feel of the bumps on the road. However, this is not the only reason this supercar has made it to our top 10.
 
The McLaren 720S can also go from a complete standstill up to 62mph in just 2.8 seconds and can reach a mass speed of 212mph. The price for the McLaren 720S currently starts at £208,000 and unlike McLaren’s previous less-impressive infotainment systems, they have ensured that this supercar has an infotainment package to match its premium performance. For example, front/rear ventilated seats, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, a heating steering wheel and other exterior features like 21-inch wheels, a full titanium exhaust system and additional colours can all be added at an extra cost.



 

4. Lamborghini Aventador S

Now you might think our next super in our top 10 lineup, the Lamborghini Aventador S looks very similar to the original Lamborghini that you are used to seeing. However, take a closer look and you will notice subtle updates to the styling and a much bigger improvement in terms of performance. 
 
For example, the Lamborghini Aventador S features renowned four-wheel steering, increased power and even some aerodynamic improvements which are said to give this supercar up to 50% more downforce when travelling at high speeds. In fact, the four-wheel steering system is really an improvement from the original Lamborghini, giving this supercar exceptional weight and feel. You could say the feature is what gives the supercar its starting price tag of £271,146.
 
The Lamborghini Aventador S also owns the largest engine on our top 10 best supercars lineup so far, being a 6.5 litre V12, producing 730bhp. The Aventador might take just a fraction longer (2.9 seconds) to go from 0-62mph than the McLaren 720S, but it definitely surpasses its top speed, reaching a maximum of 217mph.



5. Honda NSX

If you are looking for something a little different to our well-known Lamborghinis and Ferraris mentioned in our top 10 best supercars of 2020 lineup, then the Honda NSX might be perfect for you. This supercar features unique powertrain and aluminium pinnings and is built with a twin-turbo 3.5 litre V6 petrol engine which is smaller than many of the other supercar engines on our lineup. In fact, Honda claims that the NSX is meant to perform just as well on a road in Palm Springs than if it were to be driven on a circuit in England.
 
However, its three electric motors mean it can still reach a decent top speed of 191mph and can reach 62mph from complete standstill in 2.9 seconds which puts the honda NSX at a similar performance level than other typical supercars. 
 
The Honda NSX also includes super efficient aerodynamics and its distinctive looking nose will undoubtedly be enough to attract attention from anywhere which means it gets a tick from us! You can bag the Honda NSX for as low as £145,000 which might seem expensive for a Honda but you will find it’s a reasonable price for a supercar.

6. Audi R8 V10 Plus

The sixth supercar in our top 10 best for 2020 lineup is the Audi R8 V10 Plus which might look very similar to the previous model of the Audi R8. However, this updated version has a variety of new technology and it’s said that the performance is next level. 
 
One part of the Audi R8 that has been updated for the V10 Plus is the quattro 4x4 system which has increased grip levels and balance. As for the interior design, this Audi R8 model features a large 12.3 inch cockpit display.
 
The Audi R8 V10 Plus also includes super-sharp steering all over which makes this supercar much quicker and lighter in movement than a Lamborghini V10 engine. The size of the Audi R8 V10 Plus’ engine is 5.2 litre and it might not be as quick as some of our other supercars in the lineup, but it can still reach top speeds of 204mph. It can also reach 62mph from 0mph in 3.2 seconds which is still fairly impressive.



 

7. Ferrari SF90 Stradale

Moving onto our next car in our top 10 best supercars of 2020, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. You might have been blown away from some of the previous contenders on this supercar lineup so far, but this contender really will blow your mind. The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is in fact the car with the quickest lap time around the company’s own Fiorano test track.
 
Another extraordinary feature of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is that it’s a plug-in hybrid that can travel for up to a whopping 15 miles just on electricity, so it makes the ideal zero-emissions commuter car for long distances. It performs on a 488 Pista’s twin-turbocharged 3.0 litre V8 engine which is smaller than many of the other engines in this supercar lineup. 
 
However, it features three electric motors which allow total output to reach an incomparable 986bhp and an exceptional time of just 2.5 seconds to reach 62mph from a standstill. So, even though its powertrain would usually bring extra weight with it that a supercar can live without, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale’s performance clearly isn’t even phased! 
 
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale has a justifiable price tag starting from $625,000 (£484,991).

8. Lamborghini Huracán Evo

The next supercar on our top 10 best of 2020 is the Lamborghini Huracán Evo. It might only be Lamborghinis’s entry-level supercar model but its classic style really overcomes that. This supercar works on a 5.2 litre V10 engine which might produce a little less power than those supercars with four-wheel drive, but the fact it's a V10 means equal speed and responsiveness.
 
The Lamborghini Huracán features rear-wheel steering and torque vectoring which brings this supercar a little closer in the lineup to its competitors, McLaren and Ferrari. It also has a 631bhp powertrain and comes in at a starting price of £164,400.


 

9. Noble M600

Doing it for the British in our top 10 best supercars of 2020 is the Noble M600. This British supercar is hand-built and based on the late 90’s M12 sports car which was created by the man himself, Lee Noble. 
 
Even though the company isn’t owned by Lee Noble anymore, the Noble M600 still includes features that we guarantee he would have liked. This supercar is lightweight and simple in design just like the Noble M12 and it features a manual gearbox and a rear-wheel drive. The Noble M600 also comes without anti-lock brakes or electronic driver aids. This might seem out of the ordinary when it comes to a supercar, but it’s the perfect design for those who prefer a bit more direct involvement when driving.
 
The Noble M600 supercar has power of 662bhp and even though it might not seem to live up to the likes of McLaren and Ferrari, its price tag sure does, having a starting price of £206,000. In fact, the M600 is said to go faster than the McLaren F1 in almost every gear from 20-160mph and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 3 seconds.

10. Ferrari F8 Tributo

The final car to make our top 10 best supercars of 2020 is another Ferrari. The Ferrari F8 Tributo is a more modern replacement for the renowned Ferrari 488 GTB and also includes inspiration and reworked engineering from the track-based Ferrari 488 Pista.
 
This updated Ferrari works on a twin-turbocharged V8 which produces 710bhp, meaning it has exceptional power and speed that can reach 62mph in 2.9 seconds. The Ferrari F8 Tributo also features a ‘hot tube resonator’ which works on minimising the exhaust noise by piping more engine noise into its cabin. Another one of the main attractions for the Ferrari F8 Tributo is its chassis which allows incredible amounts of agility and balance. You can purchase this supercar for a starting price of £203,476.
