Evans is in for a messy ride.
Every single enthusiast in the world let out a sigh when news of Jeremy Clarkson’s incident came out. However, a group of die-hard enthusiasts let out another sigh when Chris Evans was named the next presenter of the show. Unlike other candidates, Evans was chosen for his talents as a radio host and for his apparent love of cars. While Evans may have a large collection of vehicles, the new Top Gear presenter couldn't handle the speed of an Audi R8 V10 Plus or these 5 supercars.
If Evans can’t handle the Audi, there’s no way he’ll be able to handle these supercars’ performance. The R8 V10 Plus is a proper supercar that shares a lot of performance parts with the Lamborghini Huracan. With the Huracan’s 5.2-liter V10 that makes 602 hp, Evans will have a hard time being able to hold his chunder in with this angry bull.
Only Ferrari could create a supercar with a pair of turbochargers with absolutely no lag at all. The 488 GTB’s 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 generates 661 hp and can get to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds. Turbos make everything faster and Ferrari has done it properly with the 488 GTB. Good luck trying to hold it in after driving this Evans.
It would only make sense that McLaren’s rich racing heritage would lead to an incredible supercar. After the lack-luster McLaren 12C, the automaker went back to the board and came up with the incredible 650S. Its 641 hp 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 will make anyone’s stomach queasy as it gets to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
One of the quickest supercars in the world isn’t from Italy: it’s from Japan. The Nissan GT-R may not have a fire-breathing V8, but it’s twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 can get to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Not to mention the Nismo variant makes 600 hp and can destroy the Nurburgring. Godzilla’s out to get you Evans, you better watch your back.
Nothing carves up a track or a windy road like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It may not be as fast or powerful as any of the other four supercars above, but it’s just as fast around a track. The GT3 RS’ 4.0-liter flat-six makes an incredible 500 hp without any turbos. It’s lighter and nimbler than the other supercars, while being able to get to 60 mph in just 3 seconds.
