The world is filled with some great rides. And while anyone can spout off names like Ferrari and Lamborghini, there’s a whole new realm of high-horsepowered supercars that most of you have probably never heard of. Hailing from countries you may not have known can even build such a machine.
Here’s seven of our favorites:
Before Bugatti was in the business of building Veyrons, in 1991, they built a nearly forgotten supercar with 650 horsepower and a 3.5-liter V12 — the EB110.
UK-based Noble was formed by Lee Noble in 1998, and the company started building niche supercars in 1999. In 2006, Noble introduced one of the companies first vehicles new vehicles in some time — the M15. Like its successor the M600, the M15 came with a simple, elegant design. But unlike the M600’s 650 horsepower V8, the M15 came with a mere 455 horsepower from a 3.0-liter V6.
At one point the fastest car to ever grace a paved road – the Shelby Supercars (now SSC) Ultimate Aero came with a mind-blowing 1,287 horsepower and top speed of well over 250 mph. Oh, and the American company has no relation to the late Carroll Shelby.
Like its American counterpart the Ultimate Aero, the Mosler Raptor GTR was a high-performance speed machine. 838 horsepower came from the twin-turbocharged V8 engine, and top speed was inching close to 250 mph.
Hailing from Slovenia, the Renovatio is the first car the country has ever produced. The angular design is paired to a 450-horsepower V8 and a removable top.
With 503 horsepower, this Dutch supercar is extremely light and able to reach 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds.
At $3.8 million, this Ferrari-based supercar isn’t cheap. But, with a 900-horsepower V12 and a jaw-dropping design, it’s easy to see how this would find its way into some rich sultan’s garage.
