in the year gone by, there were times when the world stopped in its tracks, took a deep breath and sighed with awe. These times were marked with the roar of supercharged engines, the smell of burning rubber and break-neck experiences. may have ended weeks ago, but the year has left an impact so deep on the automotive world, even we still can’t stop reflecting on it. We’ve put together a list of the best supercar releases, all of which will make you want to clear out some space in your garage right after reading this.
8. Aston Martin Lagonda
What makes this Aston Martin fascinating is the fact that it can burn some serious rubber and make street races run for cover, while still blending into a cocktail party with ease. Set to be released sometime this year, Aston Martin officially announced the rebirth of the Lagonda saloon in 2014. The upcoming car is expected to pack a 5.9-litre V12 that churns out 565bhp or probably more. This makes the new Lagonda saloon one of those cars you can reach a business meeting in before the rest of the board members arrive! For now, more details of this upcoming car have been kept under wraps, though we do expect to hear more from Aston Martin sooner or later.
7. Jaguar F-Type Project 7
While the Jaguar F-Type is a not-so-uncommon car today, with several versions of the same released since 2013, the Project 7 model of this iconic supercar is built to make heads turn. A concept car for now, the Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is a tribute to the Ecurie Ecosse racing team. The Jag comes with a massive supercharged, 5.0-liter V-8 engine, which produces 567bhp and 502 pound-feet of torque. Capable of touching the 60mph mark in well below 4 seconds, the Project 7 has an electronically limited speed limit of 186mph and is a car that deserves the assembly line.
