i was also thinking that THE CAR would be closer to the Saleen S7 or the CCX...all the right ideas, just not quite perfect...
Yes thats not the definition of a supercar. Taken from wikipedia:

Supercar is a term used most often to describe an expensive high end car. It has been defined specifically as "a very expensive, fast or powerful car".[1] Stated in more general terms: "it must be very fast, with sporting handling to match," "it should be sleek and eye-catching" and its price should be "one in a rarefied atmosphere of its own".[2]


By your definition a toyota avensis would be a supercar aswell.

Serpent s811 = Bugatti Veyron; fast, stable and expensive!

Mugen mbx6 = McLaren Mercedes; fast and ridiculously easy!

Durango = Corvette; bada$$, but some parts leave you saying wth?

I don't own one but what would a Caster be???
And is a Yugo a Supercar ?

IMO the 2012 B0SS 302 Laguna Seca is a Super Car, esp. with the "Track" key

Wait im confused, in what world does a mustang compete with anything other than in the 1/4 and even then they blow motors faster than they can finish the race. They can't compete with any Ferrari, lambo, Mercedes, Porsche, Lotus, Corvette or anything on a track.

Boss 302, LOL nice try.

HB = nothing above a 20K price tag, with the reliability as well.

Its kind of like a AWD big turbo 4G63 DSM. Yeah it will go fast if you pour enough money into it...just cringe cause it may break everytime you drive it.

Kinda like the Serpent chassis?

I think all of todays buggies are super compared to what they use to be.

nevermind i found it, must be slow, is it a crawler?

Serpent is a word of Latin origin (from serpens, serpentis "something that creeps, snake")[1] that is commonly used in a specifically mythic or religious context, signifying a snake that is to be regarded not as a mundane natural phenomenon nor as an object of scientific zoology, but as the bearer of some potent symbolic value. Snakes have been associated with some of the oldest rituals known to humankind
