A decade ago, super cars were the epitome of sports cars, hence their name "super cars". Well, technology has advanced and new cars have taken the place of the old which has created an entire new tier of cars: Hyper cars. Hyper cars cost millions of dollars and combine amazing aesthetics with even better performance.
Here are 10 of the coolest, most insane hyper cars coming out in the coming year.
The Croation Hypercar startup is coming back with its second fully electric car. It will go from 0-60 mph in under 1.85 seconds and has a projected top speed of 256 mph! The C_Two will be coming out in 2020 and will pack almost 1,900 horses under the hood, costing upwards of 2 million dollars.
The Hennessey Venom F5 shows that America can actually compete in the hypercar market. The twin-turbo 7.6 liter V8 is estimated to have around 1,600 horsepower and is said to hit 60 mph in under two seconds.
In 2020 Hennessey will be rolling out 24 of the Venom F5s at a price of $1,600,000 per car.
The Bugatti Divo looks MEAN. This 8.0 liter quad-turbo W16 shells out almost 1,500 horsepower and looks great doing it. The Divo has more downforce, a stiffer suspension, and less weight than its predecessor (the Bugatti Chiron) which actually made it lose some top speed, coming in at only 236 mph.
Divo will be coming out in 2020 and, because only 40 will be produced, is priced at a premium of $5.7 million.
