In this era of speed, luxury and elegance, super cars are the highlights of technological advancements in the auto world. Other interpretation of the word “supercar” is limited-production models, standard-looking vehicles, modified for increased performance. Consequently, the likes of Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini, McLaren and even the tech-driven Tesla have all come through with incredible supercar models that are not only known for their high performance, but also their wonderful body works which also include the elite interiors.
