WHEN MONEY IS NO OBJECT
The new year will be a bumper one for supercars. There’s the new Porsche 911 starting from $265,000 for a 331kW Carrera S, a facelifted Audi R8 retaining its stonking V10 engine and hopefully a V8 Lexus LC F coupe. Highriding supercars are covered by Lamborghini’s $390,000 Urus SUV, good for 100km/h in 3.6 seconds thanks to its 478kW bi-turbo V8. Traditionalists will prefer Ferrari’s track-focused 533kW V8 488 Pista for $645,000. Not enough? Lean towards the MercedesAMG One — an F1 car for the road with more than 740kW from its electrically-enhanced 1.6-litre turbo V6. Eight versions are confirmed for Australia and New Zealand, each about $4 million. The same money buys an Aston Martin Valkyrie, with 746kW/740Nm and 11,100rpm redline from its naturallyaspirated 6.5-litre V12, or save millions and settle for a 597kW twin-turbo V8 McLaren Senna.
