DESCRIPTION

There are cars – and then there are supercars. 

Supercars takes a rare look behind-the-scenes at some of the planet’s most exclusive factories, where artistry and engineering combine to make the meanest megacars on the road.

Explore the production process of Lamborghini’s staggering Aventador LP 700-4, a ground-breaking speedster capable of doing 0-100kph in less than three seconds.

Check out the crack team of design specialists who’ve reinvented the iconic-but-struggling Porsche 911.

Marvel at an unauthorised project, complete with a secret code name, which led to the spanking new all-American Corvette ZR1.

Take an emotional visit to Ford’s home in Detroit, where the latest Mustang has proved a symbol of hope in troubled economic times.

Finally, meet Horacio Pagani, the man behind the million-euro Pagani Huayra. Named after a mythical God of Wind, this highly desired supercar took eight years to develop – and has been described as Pagani’s ‘perfect car’.
