Supercar Saturday – Editor’s Pick

Supercars lined up by the dozens at the Supercar Saturday Florida event, held on February 11th. Blue skies stretched for miles when viewed from the Lamborghini Broward compound. The warm Florida sun illuminated the lustful Lamborghinis, the pulchritudinous Porches and fabulous Ferraris.  It was hard to pick anything close to a favorite but there were a few that stood out; in no particular order, here goes!

Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 Avio

The Avio is pretty much a re-wrapped Huracan. Keep in mind that the Huracan is devilishly charming and is home to a 610 horse power 5.2 litre V10 motor. With those horses the Avio is able to blast to 100km in approximately 3.2 seconds. The Italian car maker is only slated to produce 250 of these little bastards all carrying that cute L63 sticker on the side. Luckily for us, one was parked at the Supercar show

Pagani Huayra – La Monza Lisa

It’s a Pagani, what’s there not to love!? Add tonnes of Carbon, Italian themed racing stripes and a bright red interior; and what do you get? Every car lovers fantasy of course! AMG’s 6.0 V12 mass of a motor is slammed behind the driver and helps moves the Huayra to 60 mph in only 2.8 seconds.

Ford Escort – RS 1600

Now look at this mysterious beast!  I didn’t get the exact details on this car. However, this bad ‘Brit’ was worth the attention it got. Coming in four (4) or more cylinders short of the average car at the Supercar show, the Cosworth BDA series motor belongs to the annals of Motorsports history. It’s race prep appearance was very distracting and those ‘carbs’ yelled “rev meee!”

Ferrari 458 Speciale “A”

The A stands for Aperta, which means open; which in turn describes my mouth when stumbling on this physical culmination of engineering perfection. Close to 600 prancing horses storm from the stables of the naturally aspirated V8 4.5 Litre motor. In other words, this convertible can propel itself to 60 mph in only 3 seconds – making it Ferrari’s fastest convertible to date!

AC Cobra MKIII

More popularly known as the ‘Shelby’ Cobra, this Ford powered 2-seater easily schooled the ‘greenhorns’ on what a sports car should be. If I had to find a word to describe it’s appearance I would say – Raw. The brushed aluminium finish on the dash flowed seamlessly into the grey unfinished look of the exterior; giving it that industrial appearance. Which blends perfectly with the 7.0 litre 427 Ford V8 that stood poised under the hood.

Toyota 2000GT

Exotics aren’t endemic to European car makers and the Japs had set out to prove that with the 2000 GT. It was brilliantly styled, and based on Toyota’s knack for practical cars; somewhat radical in every sense. Arguably the 2JZ’s grandpa, Yamaha massaged the GT’s 2.0 litre inline-six motor to produce 150 horses. It doesn’t sound like much, however, it’s decent numbers from a sixties sports car. Speaking of numbers, the GT suffered beneficially from limited production; thus making it highly sought after by collectors.

McLaren 650S Spider

Easily a head turner, those sleek lines on the nose of the 650S demand a twenty second look.  It’s no P1 when it comes to power, but who can complain about 640 horses? The convertible arrives at 60 mph in just 3 seconds, perfect for letting your hair down, or completely removing it. Did I mention the top speed of 204 mph, with no top.

I could post automobiles for days based on the lineup present at the Supercar Saturday show. A few I missed, for others, blame it on my lazy ass; or the fact that lack of supercar ownership brings forth despondence. Either way, be sure to check out the photos I took on our Facebook page – Jatuner. If there are other cars that should have made the list, let me know by commenting below.

      Awesome car! I assume you are referring to the printed magazine? We are strictly online now. If you need higher resolution pictures of the car I can arrange. I Would love to do a photo-shoot and feature on the car, the same goes for the Pagani. Please let me know if interested 🙂
