Mercedes

Mercedes-AMG GT R

Notable differences in styling, chassis, and active aerodynamics create a more race-inspired feel and bring the GT R closer to its GT3 cousin, while the hand-built DOHC 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 boasts 577 hp, a top speed of 198 mph, and a 0-60 time of just 3.5 seconds.

With drastic improvements in curb weight, aerodynamics, and powertrain, the SVR convertible is sure to disappear from dealership stock at break-neck speeds. The ultra-sleek redesigned modern interior offers total comfort, while the considerable reduction in weight and streamlined aero create an all-around better performance driving experience. The 5.0-liter V8 twin vortex supercharged motor creates a staggering 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

Combined with a KERS hybrid unit, the 6.3L V-12 engine creates an astonishing 975 hp and a top speed of over 217 mph. Looking for launch control? Try 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds.

The Bentayga SUV

Pagani

The Huayra Roadster

Bespoke supercar manufacturer Pagani unveiled the Huayra in 2012 to replace the renowned Zonda model of days past. With the Huayra Coupe limited to just 100 units, its availability was scarce at best and the entire production run was quickly sold out. Fortunately, Horatio Pagani himself has confirmed production of a Huarya Roadster set to release in 2017. With improvements in weight and aerodynamics, the Roadster version will also add a slight increase in power for an impressive 750 bhp.

Rezvani Motors

The 700 Horsepower Beast X

The result is a 700 hp powertrain capable of traveling from zero to 60 in an astounding 2.5 seconds. Value exclusivity? Rezvani is limiting production of this unique behemoth to just five units.

Apollo Arrow

Hypercar maker Apollo Automobil GmbH

Recently rebranded hypercar designer Apollo Automobil GmbH set out to break records with their latest model, the Apollo Arrow.

The result is a 1,000 hp powerhouse capable of speeds of 224 mph.

With more than 800 bhp being produced by the naturally-aspirated 7.0L V12 engine, the all carbon-fiber Vulcan weighs in at just 1350 kg. Available in a very limited run of just 24 units, the Vulcan aims to set the new standard in what it means to be a supercar.
