Top 5 Supercars in 2017

In 2016 we had a chance to see a lot of fantastic supercars, and some of the vehicles introduced last year were the new Ford GT, Acura NSX, and LaFerrari Aperta roadster. In addition to those, Lamborghini updated its Aventador S, Bugatti showed the Chiron and McLaren 675LT Spider was also presented. However, 2016 is behind us, and we predict that in terms of supercars 2017 will be even better.

In 2017, we expect large and small car makers to produce supercars that will change our view of how we see automobiles. Also, we are looking forward to the first second-generation model from one of the best manufacturers. Let’s see the top 5 supercars we will get in 2017.

Mercedes-AMG Project One

Mercedes is slowly coming back into the production of supercars. Mercedes replaced its SLR McLaren with the 599-baiting SLS AMG, which was effectively succeeded by the AMG GT that resembles the Porsche 911. With its new hypercar known as Project One, Mercedes-AMG will definitely wow the crowd and frighten the rivals.

This machine is supposed to be powered by an F1-derived 1.6-liter turbo six hybrid powertrain, that will deliver about 1,000 horsepower. The debut of the Project One is expected at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. According to Mercedes-AMG, only a couple of hundred of these will be manufactured, but each of them will cost about $2.5 million.

Aston Martin AM-RB 001

In 2017, Mercedes will not be the sole carmaker who uses the engine from Formula One for its supercar. Aston Martin will work together with Red Bull Racing in order to develop the AM-RB 001.

Aston Martin’s chief designer Marek Reichman and Red Bull’s chief engineer Adrian Newey will work together on the new project that might have a similar amount of power and price tag as the Benz, but which will most certainly use a different engine. Under the hood of the AM-RB 001, we will see the naturally aspirated V12 which is an old-school powerplant, but the performance numbers remain unknown. Hopefully, this vehicle will arrive by the end of the year.

McLaren 720S

McLaren has been expanding its lineup ever since it launched the MP4-12C six years ago. The McLaren 650S came instead of the 12C, but now, the company is ready to launch the first complete second-generation program.

The new vehicle that is coming from McLaren is codenamed P14, but it should be later named 720S. The name speaks for itself as the new Super Series will produce 720 horsepower, thus challenging Ferrari 488 and Lamborghini Huracan. The engine capable of producing that amount of power is the signature 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8.

The vehicle will have parts designed in that way to improve aerodynamics as much as possible, while the McLaren 720S will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Chevrolet Corvette C8

Could 2017 be the year when we are going to see the long-anticipated mid-engined Corvette? Whenever it arrives, it should either replace the front-engined Vettes or present General Motor’s new flagship model.

The new Corvette is codenamed Zora, and it should be equipped with a V8 unit with or without the addition of a supercharger. There isn’t any indication when the new Chevrolet Corvette C8 should be unveiled, but hopefully, this will happen by the end of the year.

Pagani Huayra Roadster

The Pagani Huayra with a fixed roof and the roadster version are already familiar, but could the open-top variant be even more extreme and come with an engine that will pump out higher power figures?

The new Pagani Huayra will pack the 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 powerplant which should be rated at 750 hp. The lucky driver who will sit behind the wheel of this machine will experience the wind in his/her hair at the alarming speed. This one is confirmed to be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show.


These are only five of the numerous supercars that will be revealed in 2017. We also expect to see Ferrari’s new version of the 488 GTB as well as McLaren 570S Spider. Which supercar are you looking forward to?
