5 most popular supercars of 2023


New year, new cars

As we rolled into a new year, all things clean and new are on our minds. 

From starting a new exercise routine to lose those few holiday pounds, to starting a new job or a new hobby, the New Year always brings plenty of opportunities. It also happens to bring an entire new year of automotive delights that are designed to make the hearts of enthusiasts sing. We know that everyone is gaga for electric cars at the moment, but we thought we’d take a step back and talk about something that’s more in our wheelhouse. That’s right! Supercars. 

We know it’s hard to pick just five, but trust us, these are some of the most epic supercars out there. So, which supercars are buzzing for 2023, and will we get out hands on any for our supercar driving tour or supercar track days?

Read on to learn more.

If you follow the automotive industry at all, there’s just no way that you haven’t heard about the all-new C8 Corvette Z06. Over the last year, we’ve fielded the same “Are you getting a new Z06?” question from hundreds of customers. As much as we’d like to give you a definitive yes, we’re not really sure because there are so many people trying to get their hands on one of these miraculous all-American monsters! We gotta stand in line, just like everybody else. 

So why are people so crazy over this thing? It comes down to two simple words: Naturally Aspirated. That’s right, the new Corvette Z06 is rocking a naturally aspirated, flat-plane crank V8 out back that produces a staggering 670 horsepower at 8400 RPM. If you’re thinking those sound more like Ferrari numbers, you’d be dead on. In fact, the Z06 is the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 to ever come out of America. Thanks to oodles of race-ready tricks, a brilliant chassis with some serious brakes, and one of the best dual-clutch transmissions in the world, there is plenty of stopping and turning prowess to go along with the prodigious power. This thing is the complete package. Oh, did we mention it also sounds incredible (by design)? 

Did Chevrolet build a vehicle that can take on the best of the world and beat them at their own game? You bet they did.

Ah, who doesn’t love the absolute mechanical madness of a Lamborghini? We certainly do, which is exactly why we’ve had several Italian bulls come through the ranks here at Xtreme Xperience. 

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster represents the absolute last of a dying breed of supercars. Much like the Z06, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster comes to the table sans turbochargers, and wow, does this thing have an engine! Under the rear engine cover, Lamborghini has stuffed in a 6.5-liter V12 that cranks out a crazy 770 horsepower at 8500 RPM. Trust us when we say that you will collapse to your knees in an automotive state of bliss when you hear thing fire up. It’s all Italian and it is brutal. They really don’t make engines like this anymore, and if you love cars, you owe yourself a drive behind the wheel of a naturally aspirated monster. 

Of course, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster also handles like a racecar, all while providing the driver an open-air experience to better hear that howling V12 over your shoulder. 

What can we say? In the world of supercar experiences, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster is about as good as you can get. 

Porsche 911 GT3

Vehicle Type:  Rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 2-passenger, 2-door coupe

Engine: DOHC, 4.0-liter, 24-valve flat-6, aluminum block, and heads with direct fuel injection

Transmission: 7-speed dual-clutch automatic

Horsepower: 502 hp @ 8400 rpm

Torque: 346 lb-ft @ 6100 rpm

Country of Origin: Germany

0-60: 2.7 seconds

Top Speed: 198 MPH

In the world of supercars, there are a few ways to go about things. You can do what Lamborghini does and stuff a huge V12 under the rear bonnet hooked up to an equally large, AWD chassis. Or, you can do what Porsche does, and stuff a lightweight, high-revving engine, in a compact, lightweight body that can handle nearly telepathic abilities. 

Porsche’s GT3 is the embodiment of what a sports car should be. To put it bluntly, the GT3 nearly matches the performance of the Aventador SVJ Roadster, but does so with six fewer cylinders and over 250 less horsepower! Thanks to a race-prepped flat-six engine that spins madly to a lofty 8500 RPM redline, and rear-wheel drive, the GT3 takes some serious skill to pilot up to its limits. Most normal drivers will never see anywhere near the limits of the GT3 on the street, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy that 502-horsepower scream. 

We have a GT3 in our Open Road fleet, and every person that comes out of the GT3 is giggling with a mix of delight and terror. For the normally stoic German brand, the GT3 is like a punch to the gut and we love it. 

Ferrari SF90 Stradale

Vehicle Type: Mid-engine, all-wheel-drive, 2-passenger coupe

Engine: Twin-turbocharged and intercooled, DOHC, 4.0-liter, 32-valve 4.0-liter V-8. 2 permanent-magnet synchronous AC front motors and 1 permanent-magnet synchronous AC.

Transmission: 8-speed dual-clutch automatic

Horsepower: 986 hp

Torque: 786 lb-ft 

Country of Origin: Italy

0-60: 2.0 seconds

Top Speed: 211 MPH

Excuse us while we catch out breath. 

Okay, we’re good. 

Of all the vehicles on this insane list, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is somehow even more insane than the rest. Ferrari’s marquee supercar gets its pazzo prestazione from a twin-turbocharged V8 and a set of three electric motors that draw power from a 6.5-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. All this translates to a face-melting 968 horsepower and 786 lb-ft of torque, which is enough for a 2.0-second blast to sixty. Yes, you heard that right, a 2.0 second 0-60 time! 

This is also the first mid-engined Ferrari supercar (not counting the coupe` GT4C Lusso) to have all-wheel drive. So yes, you can drive your half-million car up into the mountains during the winter for a ski trip. Do people do that? Well, if you want to, you can. 

Of course, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale can also handle a race car, and stop like a race car, but it also happens to have one of the best interiors of any supercar, ever. Seriously, this thing has a 16-inch screen across the dash! 

If you like madness, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale is your cup of crazy.

McLaren is one of those companies that exist solely for the most passionate automotive enthusiasts out there. Their Formula 1 team is the second oldest in the paddock, and their road cars have been clenching behinds and stealing hearts since the debut of the McLaren F1 in the 1990s. 

Formerly available solely as a coupe, the McLaren 765 LT (Long Tail) Sider blends a lightweight, carbon fiber body with one of McLarens insane turbocharged V8 engines. In this iteration, we’re talking 755 horsepower cranking out through rear wheels. Handling is brutal but focused and the entire supercar feels like it wraps around your heart and soul. If you want to feel like you’re driving a thinly veiled race car, the McLaren 765 LT Spider is your ride. 

We’ve had a mixed history with McLaren vehicles, but we can always say that when pushed (and working) they are one of the most focused drivers cars on the planet.
