Meh... Super cars are gay. My Girlfriends dad has an Aston martin DB9... It's fast but boring. I wasn't taken back by the speed. The second I sit in my brothers Scooby, I feel huge amounts of adrenaline and excitment, the second he puts his foot down my face resembles the Joker. Thats what makes a supercar, Raw excitement and adrenaline for the driver.

Not saying an Impreza is a supercar.... But regardless.

A DB9 is not a hugely fast car but well built & a no sensible owner would be swapping it for a Scoob :lol:. Neither are Supercars.

I was merely outlining what I think should make a supercar. Excitement and adreneline whilst driving. It's like travelling in a limo or a monster truck, what would you rather? ;)

It's not just that though is it, I mean you can get plenty of excitement and adrenaline in modestly powered hot hatches.

okay, okay... But hatches are designed to be fun. Most supercars are caped in luxary and ride 'enhancers'. I wouldn't want that, makes it boring.

what about the Nissan GT-R? Anyone seen the top gear reviews? Beat several supercars on a track, has launch control, etc. One thing i didnt like is that it limits you until you get on a track. Launch control could be good for merging onto highways.

And what about an agressive look? A bentley might have the same power as a lotus, but they have very different styles.

An Enzo less fun than a Golf GTi :blink:.
It would be interesting what fun destroying 'goodies' you think these supercars have. Most will never drive a really fast car so only think a hot hatch is fun & fast. A Supercar is one most will never drive because of cost so how can you say they are not fun if you have not driven it. Im lucky ive driven some very fast cars & believe me they dont destroy the fun only give a buzz that cant be got in lesser cars.

Given a Standard Bugatti Veyron will do 100mph in 5.8/sec - I'm not sure what I would call sub 3 seconds... complete madness probably! ;)

I would think there are different levels of Super car.
That Hot three American Cars @ 500+HP could br one.
then Audie, BMW, Merks, Jaguar another and so on.
