Worlds Top 10 Super Cars

the 10 coolest cars of 2007

10. Aston Martin Vanquish Ultimate Edition

Top speed: 201mph - 0-60mph: 4.7 seconds

Max power: 520BHP - Price: £182,095

The Ultimate Edition is a slightly tweaked version of the already amazing Vanquish S. Only 40 of these badboys were made, all of which were snapped up within weeks of their release.

The main change is the colour - this version comes in Ultimate Black, the only Aston it's used on. Customers are able to request a stick-shift gearbox, as opposed to the normal paddleshift one.

9. McLaren Mercedes SLR 722

Top speed: 209.4mph - 0-60mph: 3.5 seconds

Max power: 650BHP - Price: £350,000

The 722 is the even faster version of the already quick SLR. It's got 650bhp, and it's 2mph faster! The "722" is a nod to the Mille Miglia race of 1955, when Stirling Moss (ask your dad) won in an SLR that carried the number 722.

Before its release this year, potential customers were invited to test the car at the Paul Ricard Circuit where most F1 teams do their testing.

8. Locus Plethore

Top speed: 205mph - 0-60mph: 3.5 seconds

Max power: 750BHP - Price: £140,000

Canada's first supercar for 30 years uses a Chevrolet V8 engine that can be tuned up to 1,300bhp. It's rumoured that the new model of the car will feature a central driving position.

Fancy one on your drive? Well, the good news is that it'll set you back a pretty reasonable £140,000.

7. Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 60th Anniversary

Top speed: 196mph - 0-60mph: 4.2 seconds

Max power: 540BHP - Price: £130,000

This limited-edition Scaglietti was designed for Ferrari's 60th anniversary. Only 60 will be made.

The coolest new edition is what Ferrari calls the "electrochromic glass roof". Basically, it's a clear roof in which the darkness can be adjusted at the touch of a button. How cool is that?

6. Dodge Viper SRT-10

Top speed: 190mph - 0-60mph: 4.0 seconds

Max power: 600BHP - Price: £65,000

The new Dodge Viper has the most ridiculous engine the car's ever had - a brand new 8.4-litre V10! It's not what you'd call shy on the power front either, pushing out a monumental 600bhp!

Massive 14in Brembo brake discs mean the SRT-10 can go from 60mph to standstill in under 100 feet!

5. Beck LM800

Top speed: 210mph - 0-60mph: 3.2 seconds

Max power: 650BHP - Price: £310,000

It's made in Switzerland, the home of watches and cuckoo clocks. It's made using the lightest materials on earth to improve performance.

The 4.2-litre V8 produces 650bhp, but special editions - 850bhp and 1,000bhp - can be ordered.

4. Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

Top speed: 196mph - 0-60mph: 3.8 seconds

Max power: 522BHP - Price: £150,000

With a 5.0-litre V10 that produces a healthy 522bhp, the Superleggera comes with 10bhp more than the standard Gallardo. It is also much lighter than the standard model because most of the bodywork is carbon fibre and most of the glass has been replaced with lighter clear plastic.

The braking's a bit better, too - from 60mph to standstill, this car stops one metre before the standard version.

3. Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Top speed: 193mph - 0-60mph: 3.6 seconds

Max power: 415BHP - Price: £88,000

The GT3 RS has the same power as the normal GT3 but, at 1,375kg, it is 20kg lighter. This means the RS is 0.1 secs faster than a standard GT3 from 0-60.

The GT3 RS comes in either black or silver but, as an option, you can also get it in bright orange or green.

2. SSC Ultimate Aero TT

Top speed: 240mph - 0-60mph: 2.78 seconds

Max power: 1,183BHP - Price: £400,000

Although its official top speed is 240mph, SSC reckons the Aero TT will actually do 270mph. If this is true, it would make it the fastest car in the world, ahead of the 252mph Bugatti Veyron.

However, when it was tested in Nevada earlier this year, bad weather meant it "only" reached 221mph. It's power is awesome. When the driver changed into sixth gear at 190mph, the wheels span!

supercars

1. Audi R8

Top speed: 187mph - 0-60mph: 4.5 seconds

Max power: 420BHP - Price: £76,825

For an extra £830, the R8 comes with seats that adjust electronically in every direction. The suspension system adjusts itself to suit the road conditions.

Even though Audi is frantically knocking out 15 R8s a day, you won't be able to get one until mid-2008!
