Full screen
1 of 20|Aston Martin DB11|After weeks of crowd teasing, the covers of the new Aston Martin DB11 have officially been lifted. Aston Martin's chief executive says that it's "not only the most important car that Aston Martin has launched in recent history, but also in its 103-year existence." The heart of the DB11 is a brand new twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12 which punches out 600hp and 700Nm of torque. 0-100km/h? 3.9 seconds. Bond will be a happy chap.

3 of 20|Lamborghini Centenario |The Lamborghini Centenario is a tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini's hundredth birthday. Under the lashings of wild carbon and gaping air vents is an Aventador V12 with a reworked engine which puts out a massive 770hp. That's enough to get the car from 0-100km/h in 2.8s with a top speed of 350km/h. Stopping power and handling is sorted with big carbon-ceramic brakes and magnetorheological dampers.

Power from the big 6.3-litre V12 is up from 651hp to 680hp and there's now rear-wheel steering integrated into its AWD system for the first time in Ferrari history. Your family snow trips just got real. Real fast.

7 of 20|Porsche 911R|Porsche is going after the purist driver with a new version of their iconic 911, the 911R. It's ultra-light weight, packs a GT3 RS motor, a stripped out interior and most importantly, a philosophy of driving over power figures and lap times. Under the trunk is a naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat six with 493hp sent to the rear wheels. It's a limited edition model so do keep your eyes and wallets peeled.

9 of 20|Bugatti Chiron|The Bugatti Chiron is the world’s second most powerful production car. Numbers don't lie and you wouldn't want to test this menacing looking machine regardless. Taking the reigns from the Veyron, the Chiron is powered by an 8.0-litre W16 engine (that's 16 cylinders, EPA junkies) with four turbos. Unlike the Veyron, which had 1,000 horsepower when Bugatti launched it in 2005, the new Chiron pumps out 1,478hp. It does the 0-100km/h sprint in less than 2.5 seconds and top speed is 420km/h - with an electronic limiter for road use. Right then. US$2.5 million is the price you pay for supreme bragging rights.

11 of 20|Koenigsegg Regera A |Taking the thunder away from the Chiron is the Koenigsegg Regera A. The Swedish hypercar relies on book smarts rather than cylinders and engine capacity to trump the Bugatti giant. A 1,100hp 5.0-litre V8 is mated to a hybrid system with 241hp electric motors. The combined peak power affords the car an insane 1,500hp and 2,000Nm of torque. 0-100km/h is disposed of in 2.8s before reaching a top speed of 400km/h. Now why can't IKEA be this exciting?

13 of 20|2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR|The new wildcat on the block is an F-Type tweaked by the boffins at Jaguar-Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations. What this means is that the car will receive JLR’s latest 5.0-litre supercharged V8 that has been boosted to punch out 575 horsepower (25hp more than the F-Type R). Torque is up from the standard 680Nm to 700Nm. It will demolish the 0-100km/h sprint in 3.5s, down form 3.9s. Top speed? 320km/h. Nice kitty.

15 of 20|Pagani Huayra BC|Pagani has given the Huraya a strict diet and added more muscle to create the new Huayra BC. The lightweight hypercar is fitted with an AMG-derived biturbo 6.0-litre V12 which outputs 60hp more than the standard Huayra. That's 789hp and 1,022Nm of torque in a car that weighs just 1,218 kg. Fun times ahead indeed.

Suspension has been firmed up, weight has been removed and the engine is pushed further back into the chassis to improve handling. It puts away the 0-100km/h sprint in 6.8s but that doesn't matter as it's the curves that count for this car.

A diesel variant comes with 275hp but a lot more torque than the prior two.
