About This Quiz
Everyday cars are fine for ordinary people doing ordinary things, right? You need to go pick up eggs and milk, you hop in your Toyota Corolla and go to the market. No problem. But what if you want to feel the wind whipping through your hair at 212 miles per hour as an engine that sounds like a million angry bees powers you down the highway? That Corolla just won't cut it. You need a high-performance machine that tears the highway to pieces. You need a supercar.
Supercars were born in the 1960s when automakers started pushing the limits of what a car engine could do. Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Jaguar and others were melding a sexy design esthetic with power that had been previously unheard of in cars. That's what gave us things like the Lamborghini Miura, the Ferrari 288, the Lancia Strato or the De Tomaso Patera. Some of the cars that were breaking the speed limits with 150 miles per hour back then have evolved into cars that today can crack 300 miles per hour, like the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport. Let us know your tastes when it comes to supercars, and we'll figure out just how fast you've ever gone.
