The Ten Least Super Supercars

Supercars are all about performance and style. Miss one crucial component, and you have disaster. Here are the ten least 'super' supercars ever made.



10.) Maserati Merak

You look at the Merak, and think yes, this must be a supercar! It's got crazy styling thanks to Giugiaro, a mid-engined layout and a trident up front. Unfortunately, later Meraks came with a 2.0-liter V6 producing 168 horsepower. It wasn't super.

9.) Ferrari Mondial


The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand


A V8 Ferrari, so what's not to like? Patrick Frawley will tell you:


The original 2-valve Ferrari Mondial 8. Take all the weaknesses of the early injected 308 and put them in a bigger, heavier, instantly dateable shell. The nadir of Ferrari's production cars.

Later ones were better but still don't get much love.

8.) Lamborghini Urraco

Don't worry, it wasn't only Ferrari or Maserati who forgot what supercars are all about in the seventies. The Urraco P200 came with a 2.0-liter V8 to skirt an Italian tax code and it came with a whopping 180 horsepower.

7.) Lotus Evora5

Don't get me wrong, I like the Evora, but it just isn't super enough. Kiwi_Commander is also forgiving:


My nomination goes to the Lotus Evora; but I will highlight the positives of the car rather than the negatives.

I know what you are thinking, that is not even a super car, but it really is as it comes in a MR configuration, has pretty decent power from a V6 and its pretty rare to find one on the road. Most importantly, it's affordable when compared to the other super cars. Not to mention that it's also sold in a 2+2 configuration.

Being the least super supercar is not a bad thing :)

6.) Venturi Atlantique 260


The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand


The thing is that no matter how much we like their designs and engineering, the French pretty much suck at making supercars. With its 2.8-liter twin-turbo V6, the Atlantique had decent performance at the time, but it still wasn't good enough to save the company from bankruptcy.

Covini Engineering has made some great cars in the past including a diesel sportscar way before they got mainstream, but with the C6W, they were revisiting an idea that failed in F1 before. While we are fans, it get's a D for effort, but not more.

3.) Dome Zero


The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand


The Dome Zero might have a cool name and the looks of a Lamborghini, but it also has a 2.8-liter inline-six from a Datsun. That wasn't impressive enough for potential costumers, so the project folded.

2.) Mitsuoka Orochi

Japan's Mitsuoka is famous for making the worst retro cars in the world, but the Camry-engined Orochi is one more step into the darkness. There's no coming back.

1.) Hofstetter Turbo


The Ten Least Super SupercarsExpand6


Brazil had some pretty strict import laws in the early '80s, so a guy called Mario Richard Hofstetter came up with this fiberglass monster, powered by a 1.8-liter engine from Volkswagen. He managed to sell 18.7
