The top 3 supercars in the world

This week we take a look at 3 of our favorite supercars of the last few years from 3 of the worlds leading exotic car manufacturers - Ferrari, McLaren & Lamborghini. While the team at Exotic Rentals & Retreats agree that it's difficult to pinpoint a clear 'winner' as all three vehicles are simply outstanding, we will display the vehicles by order of merit after voting on the following points:

- Power

- Speed

- Looks

- Sound

- Handling

- Overall

Each outcome was ranked from 1-10 by 3 of us who were lucky enough to test these vehicles at a track day in Barcelona late last year, with 10 being the absolute best and 1 being - you guessed it - downright horrible. Remember 'supercars' differ to 'hypercars' which we will have a segment on in the not too distant future.

In 3rd place we have the McLaren 720S Spider - first released at the Geneva motor show in 2017 - the McLaren is simply a spectacular vehicle. Its super light chassis, coupled with spectacular dihedral doors and that wonderfully tuned 4.0-liter M840T twin-turbocharged engine make this vehicle one of the best exotic supercars we've driven and it only comes in third place because well - someone has to be there. Its not too bad to look at either, is it?

Design Highlights

If you're looking to turn the impossible into possible, there may not be a better companion for you than the lighter, faster and stronger McLaren 720S. With its tempting technology and innovative framework design, this vehicle is all about pushing limits and accomplishing dreams. Enjoy the rigidity and lightness of the monolithic carbon-fiber tub which runs all the way to the roof of the car. The unique supercar design offers low-weight and high-strength passenger section so that the drivers and riders can enjoy thrilling, unparalleled driving experience. You can also enjoy exceptional aerodynamics and better driver’s seat protection. Moreover, the extended door apertures and the engine bay open into the roof! Prepare yourself to be captivated by the majestic opening and closing of doors in this twin-hinged dihedral door design bodywork which sweeps the doors into a forward direction to complement the car’s geometric design. Enter, sit and drive the McLaren 720s effortlessly.

Interior Styling

Although the interior contours retain the McLaren DNA, we can see a striking difference in their bolder design. The car’s design is said to be inspired by a Great White Shark. It means that you must prepare yourself for a beautifully sleek design that wraps a brutally efficient speed hunting machine inside! Sit in the teardrop-shaped cabin which is further adorned with slim pillars and outstanding glass canopy for a stellar day view and visibility.

Performance and Drivetrain

The McLaren 720s is bestridden with a powerful M840T engine which generates a power of 720PS. You can start the snarling twin-turbocharged V8 engine with just a push of a button to maximize speed and performance without impeding fuel efficiency.

in 2nd place we have the monstrous Ferrari 812 Superfast. Ferrari weren't lying when they named this car - IT IS SUPER FAST. With 800HP under the bonnet the 812 comes in 2nd only because we felt the 1st place vehicle was superior in looks - but that is arguable and on any given day we're sure either the Ferrari or the McLaren could have ended up on top.

Also released at the Geneva motor show in 2017 the Ferrari 812 superfast is the successor to the ever popular F12 Berlinetta. The Ferrari 812 Superfast's 6.5-liter V12 engine is the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made... that's right. A naturally aspirated V12 front e
