By the end of 2016 we will have seen the release of the latest generation in mid engine supercars - McLaren's 675LT, Ferrari's 488 GTB, Lamborghini's Huracán, Audi's all new R8 and the American contribution, Ford's new GT. All of which will have upwards of 600 horsepower and will utilize the latest technologies to achieve the best possible performance. The real question we are all asking is, which will be the fastest?
With the Geneva Motor Show just two weeks away we may have some more details soon, but it may still be some time before we see the five supercars face off. We already have seen what the Huracán is capable of, putting down lap times even quicker than its big brother - the Aventador, and the 488 has beat the 458 by a full two seconds around Fiorano. However, aside from the Huracán and the 488 the others have given little information in terms of track performance figures. The GT made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year but relatively little information on performance figures has been given.
We know the 675LT will have 675 hp, the 488 will have 660 hp, the R8 will be offered in a V10 Plus package with 610 hp, the Huracán has 601 hp and the GT will be somewhere over 600 hp. In terms of horsepower, it would seem the 675LT aims to set the bar high.
We will all be anxiously awaiting video footage and lap times, along with some - if not all - in our favourite sims, so in the meantime we may as well go on guessing.
