Now here's a special edition car name that makes sense. Powered by the same naturally aspirated V10 engine as the Audi R8 LMS race car, the Audi R8 Competition is the fastest production car the company's ever made, featuring 570hp, a seven-speed S tronic transmission, a 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of 199 mph. It looks race-ready, too, with matte carbon fiber used in the fixer rear spoiler, engine bay, mirror housings, side blades, and front and rear diffusor, resulting in lower weight and greater downforce. Speaking of downers, it's limited to only 60 units, so you'd best get your order in now.
The 435 hp of the standard 2015 Mustang GT is nothing to scoff at, but if you're looking to run with the Corvettes and Hellcats of the world, it's simply not enough. Which is why they build the 2015 Hennessey Supercharged Mustang. Limited to just 500 units, this upgraded pony offers 717hp thanks to a supercharger upgrade, and also makes sure you can handle all that power, with lightweight 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport 2 rubber, 15.1-inch Brembo brakes, and a carbon fiber body kit that adds downforce for improved grip and handling.
When you decide to name a car after a legendary race course, you'd better make damn sure it's not a slouch. Fortunately, the Vencer Sarthe is worthy of its namesake. Named for the famous Circuit de la Sarthe Le Mans race course and inspired by sports cars from the '80s Le Mans era, this Dutch-built supercar is powered by a 6.3-liter supercharged V8 outputting 613 hp, and features a six-speed manual gearbox, automatic rear spoiler, two-tone leather interior with Alcantara inserts, a lightweight carbon fiber body, and a Torsen limited-slip differential to help get the power to the road — because unlike a lot of modern racers, there are no computer assits to be found here.
As only the second sports car developed entirely in-house at Mercedes' sports division AMG, the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT has some lofty standards to live up to. It'll arrive in both standard GT (456hp) and GT-S (503hp) variants, featuring lightweight aluminum construction and a newly developed AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine that's hand-assembled by a master engine builder. That engine, when combined with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission, is good for a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph on the GT-S, and like any Mercedes, both models sport an extensive list of Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive assistance systems that help them perform as well on the streets around your house as they do on the race track.
