For many automotive enthusiasts seeing a true supercar in person can be a life changing experience. For example, I remember being completely blown away when I first laid eyes on a 1972 Lamborghini Miura. The car was simply stunning from every angle and over time, has influenced how I view cars today. Over the years supercars have not only become faster, but safer and more refined as well. It wasn’t until the 1990′s though that this un-obtainium breed of automobile really came into its own. Things like advanced turbocharging methods, enhanced suspension components and new safety features thrust the supercar into realms the world had never seen. These machines were also pivotal in setting the stage for how all future supercars would be judged. Their style and performance, although at times controversial, helped manufacturers push the limits of what was possible in road going street cars and in turn, helped automakers advance entire product lines. Even though some of these machines are going on 20 years old, that doesn’t change the fact that they are still the things that childhood dreams are made of.

    Great list. Love the fact you mentioned the R390, but no mention of the Dauer 962? Or even the Toyota TS020?

  2. James says:

    mclaren f1 is still king of the super cars

  3. Austin Schutz says:

    No Corvette?

  4. T-Palm says:

    What’s wrong with the Acura NSX?

  5. crispy says:

    The CLK-GTR, while fast, is just butt-ugly. Likewise the 911 GT1; which is hard for me to say as a lover of (most things) Porsche. The Vector W8!! Hadn’t thought of that car in years…awesome! No Skyline? Probably too pedestrian looking in those days, but the performance was rockin’.
