Great Britain has made a lot of contributions to the automotive industry, perhaps even more than any other country. Those contributions are spread across the board, ranging from luxury sedans such as the Bentley or the Rolls Royce to sleek small cars such as the MINI Cooper. When it comes to supercars, that is another area where the UK has earned bragging rights. Here is a quick look at the best supercars to ever come out of Britain.
1. 2014 McLaren P1
McLaren is, arguably, the most distinguished British automaker when it comes to supercars. The company’s track record is full of notable inclusions and the latest one just might be the best yet. Certainly, in terms of performance, it eclipses all previous efforts and it is on par with any other car out on the market today.
2. Aston Martin One-77
It was obvious that the most famous British automotive brand had to make an appearance on this list. Aston Martin became a household name after the DB5 became the symbol of British excellence and style thanks to Agent 007, James Bond. To this day many consider the DB5 featured in the movie Goldfinger to still be the signature Bond car. Afterwards the company saw a resurgence after several decades with the exquisite DB9, but it is the remarkable and highly-collectible One-77 which earns the title of best supercar made by Aston Martin.
3. McLaren F1
This is simply the ultimate car of the ‘90s. When it came out, it was the fastest production car ever and stayed that way for a long time, but the greatness of the F1 was much more than pure speed. It was simply miles ahead of its time and it was unrivaled by anything on the road.
