We’re guessing very, very few people will dispute that we are currently living in the golden age of supercars. They are faster, more powerful, better handling, more comfortable, more efficient and just plain easier to live with than they have ever been. However, we can’t help feeling that with all the fancy electronics and paddle-shift transmissions, some of the magic of the supercar genre has been lost.
Henry Catchpole and the blokes at Evo magazine seem to be of the same opinion, for they gathered an all-star roster of what they call “analogue (English English for “analog”) supercars.” Check it: Ferrari F40. Ferrari F50. McLaren F1. Porsche Carrera GT. Pagani Zonda F. Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV. And Noble M600. With the exception of the Lambo, all are rear-wheel-drive with proper three-pedal H-pattern manual transmissions, and all are raw, raucous driving machines. Naturally, there can only be one winner, but if you ask us, there are no losers in this fleet.
