Supercars have traditionally been the stuff of fantasies. Over the years, there have been many great examples given, but in 2022, we have a ton of options. Those who have the means have a lot of options, at least. However, a sleek supercar isn’t always the fastest or equipped with the best gadgets. A cool supercar only needs to stand out with a few elusive cool factors to do so.
It should be noted that while Android has a market share of roughly 71% globally, it holds 85% of the market in nations like Brazil, India, Indonesia, Turkey, and Vietnam. Regarding iOS, its annual growth rate is stagnant at roughly 28% of the global market. But the long-term trend appears to be to Apple’s advantage. While iOS has witnessed a growth of 8 percentage points over the same period, Android has suffered a decline of 1.8 percentage points in its market share globally.
This also implies that there are some ambiguities in the definitions of what constitutes a cool supercar, and the simplest way to explain it is that it should simply have a certain air about it. Fortunately, 2022 has provided us with a wide range of supercars, and these are perhaps the ten most attractive.
Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut: It can be challenging to surpass what has already been accomplished while producing the most advanced and complex automobiles in the world. That doesn’t stop Christian von Koenigsegg from pushing the limits even farther, though. The Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut, which rates above any car at the time of writing, is the manufacturer’s fastest and most extreme model at the time of writing. The Jesko name pays homage to the founder’s father, Jesko von Koenigsegg, even though the Koenigsegg corporation bears his name.
It would probably take too long to list all of this car’s ground-breaking features and technologies. The 5.1-liter twin-turbo V8 with an output of up to 1,600 horsepower and a redline of 8,500 revolutions per minute, according to MotorTrend, is one of the highlights. The engine was entirely created in-house and features three injectors per cylinder, an innovative air injection system that accelerates the turbos, and an industry first pressure monitoring system inside the cylinders. This is supported by a clever transmission that shifts incredibly quickly and only weights 198 pounds.
A ton of carbon fiber and custom elements of the greatest imaginable quality surround everything. The high-performance and luxury car interiors combine to create a vehicle that is incredibly quick yet ultimately manageable and practical for everyday drivers. Although it is an excellent and cool car, its price tag of around $3 million makes it outrageously costly.
Rimac Nevera: The debut of a new Croatian-made production vehicle is among the auto industry’s most unexpected occurrences for 2022. The exciting thing about this automobile is that it is not an economy model from this recently war-torn nation, but rather a first-class all-electric supercar, with parts that are most astonishingly entirely designed and manufactured in-house. The company’s creator, Mate Rimac, created and put his Rimac Nevera EV into production in a surprisingly short period of time. The first model will be delivered in August 2022. His automobile is outstanding in every way, including its latest high-speed run of 258 mph, which broke the previous record.
The Nevera comes with a lengthy number of outstanding features. According to Motor1.com, the vehicle’s 1,914 horsepower is produced by electric motors mounted on each of its four wheels and powered by a 120 kWh battery pack. Additionally, it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.85 seconds, and under full acceleration, the electric motors’ quick torque will deliver a powerful gut punch to the occupants. Compared to some more well-known raging bulls from Italy, Rimac’s aesthetic is more subdued, yet it is still an aggressive, sleek, and magnificent design. The degree to which the interior design maintains its position as a desirable and unmistakably expensive space, pleasant for every driving circumstance, is also mentioned by Ars Technica. A digital driver tutoring system that may direct drivers toward faster lap times and improved skills is one of its best features.
Hennessey Venom F5: In terms of supercars, Americans have fallen short for the majority of our automotive history. Prior to the release of the Ford GT, only niche OEMs with short-term viability, like Vector W8, had produced genuine domestic supercars. The brand-new Hennessey Venom GT represents the most recent development in this young but developing industry.
Hennessey has established a reputation for producing a variety of performance modifications for production automobiles as well as installing and customizing the same vehicles for retail sale, resulting in some extreme performance versions of Mustangs, Camaros, Jeeps, and light trucks.
But now, with the Venom F5, it has designed and built its own supercar from the ground up. The Venom GT, a potent supercar that Hennessey had previously developed, was built on a modified Lotus chassis, but this one is entirely original.
Being made in the United States is cool enough for us Americans, but it goes much beyond. The Venom F5’s custom engine, which is based on the GM LS pushrod V8, has been extensively upgraded to generate 1,817 horsepower and drive the back wheels.
Although the automobile is designed to travel incredibly quickly, it is also meant to be driven on public roads and is maneuverable enough to be used as a street-legal vehicle. Other than that, it has a great blend of curves and creases, with plenty of carbon fiber visible all over.
Lotus Eletre: Supercars are widely accessible nowadays, and a growing number of them are being referred to as “hypercars” because of their incredibly high pricing and great power. Does that, however, preclude an SUV from attending the party? One could argue that Eletre proves that one can, Lotus. The Eletre is not just the first-ever SUV from Lotus, but it is also entirely electric. This car demonstrates Lotus’ commitment to making passenger cars as well as its commitment to converting its entire lineup to electric power.
Fair enough, deliveries of this car will begin in 2023, but it has long since passed the prototype stage and is such a cool new model that it deserves to be included on this list. According to Inside EVs, the first one actually already departed the factory’s assembly line, which is located in a brand-new $1.2 billion facility in Wuhan, China, a city known for its industrial might rather than Norfolk’s rolling hills. This first Lotus SUV has a dual motor configuration, over 900 horsepower, and a 370-mile range estimate. Many of the details have not yet been revealed, however, Lotus has given images that highlight this EV’s greatest features. The exterior is stylish and appealing, with a forceful and assertive posture that is in no way overdone or garish. With simple lines and an aesthetic that matches the outside, the inside appears to be on par with other high-end vehicles on the market. Even though it’s not an automobile, it’s still awesome and incredibly cool.
Ferrari Roma: Given that Ferrari created the first supercar, it makes sense to include one on a list of cool supercars. The Prancing Horse has traditionally stood for the quickest and most luxurious vehicles on the market. Ferrari has produced both the most opulent touring cars and extreme instances of high-performance vehicles over the years, most of which have evolved into coveted symbols of Italian refinement. The Roma, one of its newest models, is a stylish, comfortable, and an elegant car designed for long, winding back roads and energetic driving. It may be more of a GT car than a supercar, but it is still incredibly cool.
The Roma isn’t exactly a 2022 vehicle either, but it is simply so breathtakingly gorgeous that it doesn’t really matter. And even though Ferrari has produced bizarre vehicles like the F40, Enzo, and LaFerrari, this is arguably the most beautiful design to come out of Modena in a long time. A twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine with over 600 horsepower and a plethora of technology, such as digital screens for the driver, the center console, and one specifically for the passenger with separate controls, go hand in hand with the vehicle’s breathtaking good looks. Each front seat is sat in its own pod, ready for takeoff, giving the interior the feel of a jet fighter cockpit that an Italian design firm has warmed up. Although the rear seats are probably too small for anyone larger than a schnauzer, nothing else matters when your ride looks this fantastic. It also features rear seats.
McDonald Solus GT: Supercars can be cool without necessarily making logic. They don’t even have to be able to be driven on the street or be useful or practical. A cool supercar may occasionally be downright crazy, and the McLaren Solus GT is a prime illustration of this. With this design, McLaren has produced a single-seat track vehicle with a V10 engine. According to Road and Track, the V10 generates 830 hp and propels the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. The vehicle’s low 2,205-pound weight and large bodywork, which generates 2,645 pounds of downforce, contribute to its high speed.
This vehicle represents a significant divergence from prior McLarens, which were formerly powered by V8 and, more recently, a V6 engine. Although it is not the first McLaren with a centralized driving position, it lacks passenger space, unlike the storied F1. The inside resembles a cockpit more. Although it does not appear to be a race vehicle exactly, it should be clear from looking at it that every curve on it is intended to keep it firmly attached to the track. It is stylish and exciting. It was first introduced in a video game. Similar to a video game, only 25 of these will be produced, and they are essentially toys.
It is a toy meant to be driven on a track by the type of wealthy person who can play with anything they desire.
Koenigsegg Gemera: This time, Sweden receives two entries, which span the full Koenigsegg series. Although both vehicles are very incredible, the Gemera may be considered the company’s family vehicle. It is very nice, and it has rear seats.
The Gemera has four seats and two doors, but it may be difficult to categorize it as a coupe because the back seats are easily accessed by the back passengers because the doors are incredibly long and open with the customary Koenigsegg dihedral synchro-helix actuation, according to Evo. All passengers have unrestricted access to the cabin thanks to these large doors’ elegant and technologically fascinating movement as they open, which leaves a large opening. With a hybrid drivetrain that combines three electric motors and an internal combustion engine to produce up to 1,700 horsepower, the Gemera’s engineering prowess is evident throughout the entire vehicle. The engine is a three-cylinder turbo variation that makes use of Koenigsegg’s unique Freevalve system, which replaces camshafts and timing chains with electric actuators. 600 horsepower may be generated by the 2.0-liter engine alone.
There is no four-passenger car that can compare to the Gemera in terms of beauty and performance. Although it has a similar appearance to other supercars, its engineering is cutting-edge and exceptional. Only a small number of people will be able to appreciate this incredible car because each one costs $1.7 million.
