There are many sports cars, supercars people have been waiting for in 2019-2020. So with no further ado, here are the top 10 most anticipated sports cars of 2019-2020!
BMW i8 Roadster
Began as a 2009 concept car, the BMW i8 Roadster has finally become true. Frankly speaking at first, its idea was thought to be impossible due to the fear of outdated design as well as battery technology’s low performance. Yet, BMW has proven that such hardships could be prevailed, thus resulting in the awesome BMW i8 Roadster.
The i8 Roadster still looks as striking as ever and interesting enough, it vibrates a strong futuristic sensation. Just start the engine when you will hear futuristic sound as the car livens up. In overall, the BMW i8 Roadster’s performance is really good. It feels responsive and alive, while at the same time, gives out a gentle feeling. The car is also really quiet and to certain extent, it feels unfamiliar at first. But as we drive the i8 Roadster, the more fascinating it gets thanks to the implemented technology.
Given the car’s development period, it could have been much better if they improve the i8 Roadster’s power. Still, it is a really great sports car and it is definitely worth the effort for those who’re into the electric car segment.
Lotus Elise 2020
It has been a couple of years and now Lotus has officially broken the silence. As the company received a positive cash-flow in 2018, they now have funding to develop new generations, including the Lotus Elise 2020. For now we have not had much information regarding the new Lotus. That said, we expect the car to be revealed this year and possibly its production’s start in 2020.
Acura NSX Type R 2019
For fans of Japanese supercar Acura NSX, it is confirmed that there will be a new lighter and stronger Type R version for the NSX. There also have been several rumors regarding the NSX’s specs, including the one saying that the Acura NSX Type R will bumped up in power from 573 horsepower (NSX standard edition) to 641hp. Not only that, the engine is also said to be borrowed a thing or two from the NSX GT3. Still, these are unconfirmed rumors but at the very least, there is a high chance that we will get to see the NSX Type R’s reveal this year.
Tesla Roadster 2020
Back in Tesla Special Event 2017, Elon Musk and Tesla have presented a huge surprise of what electric sports car is capable, and that is: Tesla Roadster 2020. Not only the car looks sleek and sensational, it is also claimed to be the fastest production car ever made with an insane record of 0-60mph within 1.9sec and 0-100mph within 4.2sec. It is possible that Tesla will reveal more of the Tesla Roadster 2020 and it can be the most incredible experience we may have.
Porsche 911 Speedster
To celebrate the company’s birthday, Porsche has introduced the exclusive Porsche 911 Speedster, which will also be the last of the 911 Series limited edition models. Interesting enough, it began as a 911 Speedster Concept and now, it has finally become a reality. It is said to go into production in early 2019 and there will only be 1949 units produced in total. And plus, they will also come along with the Heritage Design Packages which promises a much wider range for personalization.
Starting 2019, it seems more and more automobile companies are changing their direction to electric car segment. Porsche also heads to this change by introducing their latest development for the first-time-ever Porsche electric car called Porsche Taycan. Porsche claimed that the Taycan will cover a range of 250 miles with charging time in less than 20 minutes. It is also expected to have 600 horsepower and capable of hitting 62mph in fewer than 3.5sec. Being an electric car also means that Porsche will directly compete with Tesla which is dominating this segment for years now. Furthermore, they will also compete with other contenders like Volvo’s Polestar, BMW’s Vision iNext vehicles, and Jaguar’s I Pace SUV. But since this is Porsche we’re talking about, we can totally expect some greatness from this upcoming Porsche Taycan.
McLaren Senna GTR
The McLaren Senna is no doubt an insane hypercar itself. But if you think that car is already insane enough, you probably have to think again since it will have a hardcore track-version called McLaren Senna GTR. For now McLaren has not revealed much about the car’s specs yet, but we can expect it to have the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V-8 engine. Yet, it will get a power-up from 789hp (Senna road-car version) to 813hp. Not only that, we should also expect it to generate around 1,000 of downforce. Again this is track-version and therefore, you probably will never see it on road. But for track enthusiasts, the McLaren Senna GTR is definitely a car should not be missed.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
Talking about track car, Aston Martin also has an extremely promising monster this year: the Aston Martin Valkyrie. For those who don’t know, Aston Martin Valkyrie is a collaboration work between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing. According to Cosworth, the one behind the Valkyrie’s 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V-12 engine, this car will feature a whopping 1,000 horsepower and it can generate up to 10,500rpm. It is also said to feature a hybrid system, though Aston Martin is still keeping it a secret.
Mercedes AMG Project One
Another promising hypercar which many people are focusing on is the Mercedes AMG Project One. According to Auto Express, the Mercedes hypercar will be a hybrid, featuring a 1.6-litre hybrid V-6 AMG engine, a total of 986hp, and a 11,000rpm rev. In terms of performance, Mercedes also promises a top speed of over 217mph, as well as the 0-124mph acceleration in only less than 6sec. With such incredible specs, we should expect some really intense competitions between the Mercedes AMG Project One and Aston Martin Valkyrie.
Finally we have Bugatti Divo, the newest model coming from the same folks who built the spectacular Bugatti Veyron and Bugatti Chiron. And in case you’re wondering, all 40 Bugatti Divo units have already sold out with the starting price of $5.8 million. Back to the Divo itself, it is the exclusive spinoff of the Chiron. Yet interesting enough, it focuses on handling rather than adding more power to the already-crazy quad-turbocharged W-16 engine. The car also features a lower weight than the Chiron (less than 77lbs to be precise), along with tighter chassis and higher downforce. The best part is: the Bugatti Divo is said to be faster than the Chiron on track despite its lower top speed of 236mph compared to the Chiron’s 261mph. Such small compromise in power has to mean something and we can’t wait to see it in action.
And that’s it folks! What are your most anticipated sports cars of 2019? Feel free to share with us and for now, thank you and stay tune for more news in the future!
