About This Quiz

You don't get the name "supercar" for nothing. The world is full of everyday cars, those Plain Jane automobiles that are good on gas, have room in the trunk for a case of toilet paper, and have cup holders in the back so you can give the dog a cup of water on road trips. Those cars are great. But they're not super. A supercar is a high-performance machine, the pinnacle of automaking technology, the sort of thing that can blaze by you so quickly on the highway you won't even know why you're impressed because you barely got a look at it.

Supercars, hypercars even, are the best of the best. Cars like the Buggati Veyron, the Lamborghini Huracan, the McLaren 720S and the Koenigsegg Jesko. These cars aren't meant to drive grandma to church, oh no. These are meant to burn through pure asphalt, to slice the wind like a hot knife through butter and to be the most extravagant machines humankind has ever built. And man, do they look good. For most people, they're as out of reach as the moon, but if you won the lottery? Well, that's another matter entirely. So let's find out what car you'd get behind the wheel of when you get your lucky break!
