Supercars are easily the Kate Uptons of the automotive world: stunning to behold, unobtainable by the average human and wicked in all the right ways. Even in an age of high fuel costs and environmentalism, they still get our attention. Exotic materials, radical designs, pavement rippling performance lead to stratospheric prices, which ensure that for most men, these cars will remain a fantasy. That said, more and more of these titans of the tarmac are popping up everywhere. Heck, even Poland has its own version — so you never know. Though the Arrinera didn’t make its way to us, we got to drive a handful of supercars that made us happy to be alive and gave us good reason to change our underwear.
