Best supercars 2022 – big power, big thrills

Want to go fast and make a statement whilst doing so? These are the best supercars on sale right now

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 2022 – it can be front, mid- or rear-engined, two or all-wheel drive, seat two or four people, and come with a V8, V10, 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 2022 do so by representing one of two interpretations of this notion. Some operate at the leading edge of technology, while others take a more traditional path, honing their existing elements to the highest level – think Ferrari SF90 (hybridised, turbocharged, ‘the future’ as some might say) and Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae (naturally aspirated, rev-hungry and a bit old-fashioned in many objective ways).

The good news is that despite less than favourable conditions putting pressure on these types of cars, there are more and more offerings joining the party, from Maserati’s spectacular new MC20 to a new generation of hybrids, like Ferrari’s 296 GTB and the new McLaren Artura. The supercar landscape’s under constant change, but right now things are looking good, so these are our picks.
