Supercars for 2018Back

It’s almost 2018 and with the New Year comes an exciting mix of new cars to hit Britain’s forecourts.

With SUVs and Superminis remaining highly popular in the UK, you can expect a large selection of these models to hit the market in 2018. Some will be revised versions , and some brand new.

But for this week, we’re focussing on the supercars! Below, Trusted Dealers takes a look at some of the best supercars expected in 2018.

Ferrari Portofino

Priced at around £160,000, the striking new Ferrari Portofino has been brought in to replace the Ferrari California T. On sale from early 2018, the Portofino offers the same concept as its predecessor, a front-mid engine, rear wheel drive and a folding hard-top, plus 2+2 seating. What makes the new model really stand out is its 592bhp twin-turbo V8 engine, offering 40bhp more than before, meaning it can reach 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 199mph. Despite its premium cost, if you’re looking for your first Ferrari it will be the cheapest new one on the market.

Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster

The new Aventador S Roadster is expected in early 2018 and will be priced around £250,000. This is the roadster version of the Aventador S and offers similar traits to the coupe such as active suspension, four-wheel steering and the new EGO driving mode. Add to this a removable roof with which to enjoy the 730bhp V12 engine, and you’re simply in heaven! Acceleration is slightly slower than the coupe due to the increased weight of the Roadster, but it can still achieve an impressive 0-62mph in 3 seconds with a matching top speed of 217mph.

BMW i8 Roadster

We’ve waited a long time for the BMW i8 roadster and its finally landing in the UK early next year. Priced from around £120,000, BMW’s high-tech supercar was originally based on the i8 spyder concept released back in 2012. Finally, fans can enjoy the soft top version of this incredible car. The introduction of the Roadster has also allowed BMW to introduce some revision to the plug-in hybrid to include a very subtle different look and even better efficiency from the petrol-electric engine. To keep its weight down and take up less room, the i8 Roadster is comprised of a fabric targa, which helps it to deliver high performance and range similar to existing coupe rivals.

Toyota Supra

The Toyota Supra is making a comeback! Sixteen years after the previous car went out of production, the new Toyota Supra  is expected to go on sale next year and will be priced at around £50,000. Developed in conjunction with BMW, the Supra is expected to have similar styling to the stunning FT-1 concept from 2014. Supras were once famous for producing huge amounts of power, so it is expected that the new model will be designed with this same concept in mind, and that Toyota might even scrap the four-cylinder engine in favour of a turbocharged straight-six unit instead. A hybrid model is also expected to follow.

TVR Griffith

The TVR is back on the market with its latest model expected late 2018 at an estimated price of £90,000. The new 500bhp sports car, revived from the Griffith first used by TVR back in 1964, is described by boss Les Edgar as a “British muscle car”, and is based around a carbon-composite structure which helps to minimise its overall weight. At only 1,250kg the Griffith is around 300kg lighter than some of its biggest rivals such as the Porsche 911 and the Jaguar F-Type Coupe. The power is generated from a Cosworth V8 engine that drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. The Griffith can produce an impressive 500bhp and can reach 0-60mph in under 4 seconds with a top speed of 200 mph.
