It is definitely a supercar. $480,000, 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, 600 bhp, top speed 205 mph. That is certainly a supercar in my book.

Some may call that upper crust of super cars like the Carerra GT, Lamborghini Murcielago, Saleen S7 etc. Hyper Cars but there is no doubt that they are super cars.

Only 600hp! I know a 1000hp supra that could whoop its...

...just kidding. LOL I bet some people really think that way though; that an I6 with a few big hairdryers strapped to it deems supercars that can are much more all around capable of going fast inferior. Twin turbos on a CGT...mmm

Hey! Remember that a stock Carrera will do 330km as a top speed. Any car with thet kind of speed I think is a Supercar, but I started this post to get your opinions.

Yes its undoubtidly a super car. But also beefed up tuners can smoke them in most cases, except top speed that is, its very difficult to get tuners over 200mph due to the body's on them, they were never designed to come even close to that speed, so at 180mph+ they get very unstable and flaky on the road.

The ultimate supercars are all but untouchable though. It is nearly impossible to make a street legal car that is faster than the Bugatti Veyron and Konigsegg CCX.

Top speed yes, but acceleration is a whole different thing.

Show me a refined street legal car that can out accelerate a Bugatti Veyron. There may be a couple extremely expensive custom ones that can but not many.
