Best supercars 2022 – the 10 greatest supercars of the moment

We furrow through our favourite supercars of the moment, from Ferrari to Nissan, and all those in between

The supercar: staple of the bedroom wall poster, what many of us dream to drive, and one day aspire to own. Yet, while we all know what a supercar is, there’s not really a go-to template for one in 2021 – it can be front, mid- or rear-engined, two or all-wheel drive, two- or four-seater, with a V8, V12, or even a hybrid. But what all supercars must do is appeal to those of us for whom the driving experience is key, with a little theatricality thrown in for good measure.

To do this, all supercars, at a technical level, must operate on an altogether higher plane, and in 2021 do so by representing one of two interpretations of this notion. Some operate at the cutting edge of technology, while others take a more traditional path, honing their existing elements to the highest level – think Ferrari SF90 (hybridised, turbocharged, ‘cutting edge’ as some might say) and Lamborghini Aventador SVJ (naturally aspirated, rev-hungry and a bit old-fashioned in many objective ways).

Each has its place, of course – Patek Philippe didn’t stop making mechanical watches when the Casio arrived – and there’s a plethora of both kinds that have found their way onto our list.
