Top five newly-announced sports car brands, including Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, McLaren and Porsche, are set to hit the road this summer, marking the first time since the advent of the supercar revolution that all the big names have been joined together.
But where does it all begin?
Bentley has the new Bentley Continental GT which is based on the new 4.4-litre V12 engine that makes up the base of the GT3, but is also the base engine of the Bentley Continental R, the flagship Bentley Continental and the new Range Rover Sport R. It has a twin-turbocharged V8 that makes 425bhp and 450Nm of torque and a five-speed manual transmission, but there’s also an automatic option, so if you need to have a supercharged engine, you can use it.
Mercedes-Benz is building a new range of supercars that will make it one of the most expensive brands in the world.
The RS 350 and RS 350L supercars will both use a supercharger system, but the RS 350 is powered by an even more powerful 5.2-litres V8 and can hit over 500kph.
McLaren has made some great cars in its history, but they haven’t always had the most successful track record, and it’s going to be interesting to see how this new supercar lineup compares to the current range of cars.
And Porsche is going to have some big new models, like the 911 Turbo and the 911 GT3.
There’s been a big push for new models from these manufacturers over the last couple of years.

And it’s the new Rolls-Royce Phantom.
This Rolls-Propelled-Air (RPA)-powered supercar is expected to be the biggest car ever built in the history of the brand, but that doesn’t mean it will be cheap.
The price of a Rolls-royale Phantom ranges from £60,000 (US) to £120,000, which is around £1.4 million.
