Don't confuse 'cool' with 'rich'...

Those 2 adjectives are worlds apart.

What is a "super car" any way?


Ferrari or a Lambo are 'exotic cars'.
"Super" could be any car that has made an impact regardless of whether it's good or bad.
The original VW bug, 1965 Ford Mustang, Ford Pinto, Ford Model-T, Dodge Aries K can be considered super cars based on the impact they have made.

A super car generally means high performance.

Supercar is a term generally used for a high-end sports car, whose performance is highly superior to that of its contemporaries. It has been defined specifically as "a very expensive fast or powerful car with a centrally located engine"[1], and stated in more general terms: "it must be very fast, with sporting handling to match," "it should be sleek and eye-catching" and its price should be "one in a rarified atmosphere of its own."[2] but the proper application of the term is subjective and disputed, especially among enthusiasts. The use of the term can be dependent on the era: a vehicle that may have been considered a supercar at one time may not retain its superiority indefinitely.[citation needed] The term supercar may refer to factory-built, street-legal sports cars, or to modified production cars that have similar performance.[3] Some supercars include some of the features required for race cars, like the roll cage, [4] while other supercars are in general race cars with only the minimum legal required modifications made (e.g. meeting emission regulations, legal tyres, limited exhaust note) to be street legal -- i.e. not at all comfortable nor practical, especially e.g. on the arbitrary city roads found in the real world.

Not exactly. Porsches, and the more pedestrian Ferraris, Corvettes, etc. are sports cars, not Supercars, IMHO.

A supercar would be highly exclusive, very expensive, and just takes performance on a whole new level. Such as The Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Enzo, Piganni Zonda, or Saleen S7 (Yes, an American car is in there!).

A friend of mine has been in a Bugatti Veyron.....needless to say he didn't go anywhere...it was at a showroom! He says the showroom management are cool about it and don't mind a person sitting in the car. I want to go and now that I have a weeks holidays I might go, seeing as how the garage is around the corner.

The next one down from there is a CLS 500 which a friend of mine rented in November 2005 for the weekend. Now that is a fun car to ride in. The seats were so comfortable....you literally just sink into them.....and no its not because I'm fat!

Ferrari or a Lambo are 'exotic cars'.
"Super" could be any car that has made an impact regardless of whether it's good or bad.
The original VW bug, 1965 Ford Mustang, Ford Pinto, Ford Model-T, Dodge Aries K can be considered super cars based on the impact they have made.

A supercar is a high performance car that is priced well above standard mass-produced cars. There are cars (everyday vehicles), sportscars (corvettes, 911s, mustangs, audis etc), supercars (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani etc) and of the supercars there are the exotic supercars... (the ones which are rediculously priced or look crazy or are rare) and the hypercars (million $+) (pretty much the Bughatti Veyron, Koenigsegg).
