No matter your opinion on the existing crop of American so-called super cars, the guys bringing us the BXR Bailey Blade XTR ($TBA) felt there was something missing — and instead of continuing to search (or settling for something other than what they wanted), they built it. This two-door coupe started its life as a one-off garage build, and quickly turned into an aggressively-powered, light-weight, track-ready road car. Powered by the same engine as the Mustang, the 5.0-liter Coyote V8, and with the addition of two healthy turbochargers, it puts out 750 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque. Aerodynamic lines, all-wheel Brembo disk brakes, four-wheel SLA suspension, electric height adjustment shocks, and more make it feel great on the track and on the road.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo ($TBA) provides indisputable proof that you don't need to drop damn near a million bucks for a track-ready supercar. Underneath the hood, you'll find a 3.8-liter turbocharged V6 engine producing a ridiculous 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque, making it the fastest GT-R to date. A race-inspired suspension setup, exclusive Dunlop tires, a more rigid body structure, and significantly-improved aerodynamics make it an impressive beast on and off the track. Inside you'll find carbon-fiber Recaro racing seats, Alcantara details throughout, and red accents to dress it up. Overall what you get is an incredible sports car that's barely slower than rides likely costing four times its price. Not too shabby.
