About This Quiz

Classic cars, modern cars, supercars, hypercars ... We cover all categories on this auto quiz. Zoom through the fascinating car images that we provide so you can make your best guesses of which countries created these automotive marvels!

The auto industry continues to churn out breathtaking technologies every market year. Every auto show seems to outdo the most recent exhibitions. All over the globe, nations are churning out design and technology concepts seemingly faster than they can make them. Such is the case for the newly dubbed "supercars." Auto startups, especially, create technologies on the fly and end up tweaking models that don't get produced until several years later! 

That's how fast the technology changes these days. And speaking of fast, the not-so-ancient fear that hybrid cars would be too slow on the road is laughable now. There are electric-only cars that would put some of the speediest gas-guzzlers to shame. Magnet technology, torque technology and enhanced engines are just a few things that make this new breed of cars go vroom so much faster than the first editions of the high-tech hopefuls. 

Take a look at the variety of cars we've gathered for you. If the eye candy doesn't pique your auto interest, then the amazing facts will. Buckle up and enjoy!
