Here are 10 Supercars that you probably have never heard of!
The Tramontana is a Spanish supercar designed to the closest thing to an F1 car for the roads. Obviously, that makes very little sense, which is why the thing didn’t catch on. But it did catch fire though, on more than one occasions, sometimes while on TV.
Tramontana is powered by a Mercedes-Benz bi-turbo V12 with 888 hp. It weighs just under 1,300 kg, and it has a reputation for being extremely wild and, well, fiery.
They have wrapped teh sun visor in Alcnatara and garnished it with gold edging. The dials and knobs have gold surrounds. There’s gold stitching and a steering wheel.
2.) The Spyker C8
The Spyker C8 sports car produced by the Dutch automaker Spyker Cars since 2000.
The design takes visual cues from the 1999 Spyker Silvestris V8 concept car but the proportions have been changed vastly.
The Spyder (later known as the Spyder SWB to distinguish it from Spyker's long-wheelbase offerings) is the original base model of the C8, debuting at the 2000 Birmingham Motor Show. Equipped with an Audi 4.2L V8 engine making 400 PS (294 kW; 395 hp), the Spyder has a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
3.) 2019 Nio EP9
The Nio EP9, which made its debut Saatchi Gallery in London, England, is a halo car for the company which focuses on creating EVs. Apart from reaching all kinds of tracks all over the world, the limited production car actually is a neat piece of kit. Four electric motors produce one megawatt of power (just like the Koenigsegg One:1) and can propel it to some extreme speeds. For example, 1,341 horsepower will launch the EP9 to 124 mph in 7.1 seconds. A hot hatch would do 62 mph in the same time.
4.) SIN R1
The SIN R1 road car is a collaboration between Bulgarian's company SIN Cars and British supplier ProFormance Metals. Powering the R1 is a Chevrolet-sourced 6.2-litre V8 engine producing 450 bhp. SIN says the R1 has a top speed of around 170mph and that it's capable of 0-62mph in just 3.5sec.
5.)The Ascari KZ1
The Ascari KZ1 is a sports car made by Ascari Cars. The car is named from the initials of Ascari's owner Klaas Zwart, a wealthy Dutch businessman.
The normally aspirated 5-litre V8, 32-valve engine gives an effortless 500 brake horsepower through a six-speed manual gearbox to the rear wheels.” In addition to being designed to perfection, this vehicle was handcrafted and only 50 of these cars were created.
6.) The Panoz Abruzzi
The Panoz Abruzzi was a grand tourer intended for manufacture by Panoz Auto Development for the European market.
The car itself is reminiscent of Panoz LMP and GTR-1 racers of the past and sports an unspecified 600HP engine up front, [a] rear transaxle, a rear-mounted three-stage radiator system, and a unique construction material called 'Recyclable Energy Absorbing Matrix System.' The material is said to be as strong as carbon fiber but lighter, with better impact absorption and apparently is even more environmentally friendly.
7.) The Arash AF10
The Arash AF10 is a hybrid hypercar by Arash. First conceptualized in 2009 as a Corvette-powered supercar, it later returned in 2016 as an upgraded version, this time as a hybrid hypercar.
8.) Revenge Verde
Revenge Designs unveiled their Verde super car, a speed machine that gets 100 MPG with over 400 HP and can do up to 200 MPH at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show. The Verde hybrid super car is built upon an aluminum chassis and features a lightweight carbon fiber body.
Aside from the standard gas/electric V8 power plant, Revenge will offer both a Roush sourced Ford Racing V8 making 605 HP and a supercharged LS9 cranking out 638 HP if you happen to be a bow tie fan. Either was the super car will sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in anywhere from three to five seconds and be capable of reaching a top speed in the neighborhood of 200 MPH, all while remaining very green.
9.) Lotec Sirius
The Lotec Sirius is a supercar built by German automotive company Lotec in 2000. It can go from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds. Lotec claims a top speed of 400 km/h (249 mph).

10.) The Vulcano Titanium’s
the Vulcano Titanium’s body is made primarily out of hand-crafted titanium and carbon fiber. According to Icona, the titanium body took 1,000 hours to complete, proving that if nothing else, dedication runs rampant within Icona’s workforce.
Capable to be tuned to well over 1,000 horsepower should the owner demand it, the optimized 680 horsepower and 820 N/m of its supercharged V8 is coupled with a paddle-shift close ratio gearbox from Automac Modena, allowing 0 to 60 miles/hr in 2.8 seconds and 120 miles/hr in 8.8 seconds.
