Auto magazine supercar directory

I think it would be useful to have all high end sports cars in one thread so we can compare what is available to prospective buyers. This thread is for supercars cars. Cars in this section compete with Aston Martins, Ferraris, Lamborghinis etc. As a guide, say 500hp+ belong in this thread. Anything else should go in the sports car directory - there is a grey area; is a GT-R, 911, Corvette a supercar? It is up to you whether your creation is a supercar or belongs in the sports car thread. Hyper cars (say 800hp+) should go in here.

To post in this directory, please only post once (just edit your post instead of making a new post if you have something new. That way your entire lineup can be seen in one post). Your post MUST contain

  • a link to your car in your manufacturer’s thread.

  • the engines you car can come with or the variants + any notable information you want eg power, economy etc

  • Expected MSRP.

  • If you choose to post images of every variant of your car, please cut the images down so they don’t take up too much screen space.

If your manufacturer post doesn’t include the three stats pages for your car, then you should post all three as screenshots in your post in this thread. Same for engine stats

Present the variants the best way you think will be most understandable.

Please do NOT post in this thread if it does not contain links to your cars (which contains full stats) as I want to keep this thread relatively clean.

See my post below as an example; because my linked post has screenshots of all the stats, I haven’t included them here, but you can if you want to; I just want to keep this thread clean so it is a one stop place to look at all the super cars created.

If in doubt, please don’t “showcase” your cars, err on the side of simplicity. If people want more detail, they can go to your link.

Well, since the necrobump, and since my car was pitted against the Aurora Manticore above, in the magazine above, I might as well include links to my car, the ZX53GT as well. Click the link or image below and scroll down in the first post to find the car.

I would like to add, this car is not a supercar. It is a modern muscle car with some road capability. It won’t take you through the curves like a Porsche 911 GT3, but it will throw you back into the comfy seats and tingle your ears with glorious road music. It is a drivers car, and as such, isn’t going to be competing against any modern supercars with electronic everything.

Swanson Motorsports Engineering

This car is part of the ZX series of cars. Specifically, this one is a 327 cubic inch (5.3L) , pushrod head (OHV) model which is naturally aspirated and features 452hp @ 6600rpm. Tuning engines, I can do. Tuning suspensions, well that is another story altogether. There was also a 400 cubic inch(6.6L) version, and an insane 7.4L twin-turbo version. I believe the tested version of the ZX53GT was a redesigned rear faschia (round tail lights), but otherwise this is Johnny-on-the-spot. This was also pre-Steam, so of course, these cars will no longer load in Automation. :wink: The newest creation from SME is the Bakeneko, also in the Swanson Motorsports Engineering thread I linked above.

Also, a big huge thank you to utopian201 for doing the above writeup which was absolutely amazing! :slight_smile:
