Cars have come a long way with the introduction of some really fast models. Due to the speed and sophistication placed in these autos they have been renamed super cars. Despite speed being a huge factor, other features such as design, handling and extra gadgets make these cars a notch above all others.
Now super cars take all the limelight for themselves as enthusiasts await the next great thing in the automobile arena. These days cars now come with electric motors that propel them as fast if not faster than some of the competition. Then the hybrids, a combination of electric motors and gas engines take their place among them all.
