Four exotic ‘supercars’ introduced in 2017

National

More automakers are getting into the insane, high-horsepower supercar thing these days. The trend provided a variety of outrageously expensive and totally impractical cars in 2017.

The new Acura NSX starts at just under $160,000. It combines a turbocharged V6 engine behind the seats and three electric motors for a total of 573 precisely targeted horsepower. It can go from zero to 60 in under three seconds and has a top speed of over 190 miles an hour. (John R. Coughlin)

The $420,000 Lamborghini Aventador S is all sharp edges, wings and Lamborghini-style, bare-knuckled aggression. The new, improved version of Lamborghini's top-of-the-line V12 supercar features four-wheel steering, improved transmission and 730 horsepower -- even more than before. (Ean R. Clark/CNNMoney)

The 647-horsepower Ford GT iss a reasonably comfortable cruiser in the short term. The cabin for two people is tight, and the air-conditioning system is as weak as the engine is strong. With a turbocharged V6 engine snuggled up tight behind the seats, the cabin also quickly gets toasty. (Courtesy Ford)

The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has the most powerful V8 ever offered in a production car. If you get one with no options, you will be doing that alone: Only the driver's seat is standard. A nicely equipped Demon with heated and cooled front seats and a high-end stereo proved to be an amiable road car. (FCA)
