When people talk about supercars, they often talk about well-known brands. We have big brands like Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren jostling for market share. It makes sense, too. To make a supercar, you have to spend a lot of money on things like engineering infrastructure and people.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other supercar brands on the market. Most of the time, they are small players with much smaller budgets than the big players in the industry. Most of the time, these small-time players make limited-run supercars that stand out for a few reasons: low production volume, high price, and, yes, they are unicorns in the industry and are rarely seen in public.
Look at the examples below and see if any of them sound familiar.
The United Arab Emirates, which is where the Jannarelly Design-1 comes from, is known for having some of the most eye-catching exotic supercars. The Jannarely is built in a Middle Eastern country, which makes it different from the park.
It is not much more than a steel tubular frame with a naturally aspirated V6 engine from Nissan. By today’s standards, 325 hp is not very much power from the engine. But the car only weighs 1,786 pounds (810 kilograms) and can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in less than 4 seconds.
The Jannarelly Design-1 was first thought of as a “barchetta,” but you can now order it with a windshield.
Eadon Green Zeclat
The unique retro style of the Eadon Green Zeclat is meant to make people feel nostalgic. The low, wide, and curved lines make it look like the aero cars that famous French car builders like Bugatti and Chapron made in the 1930s.
Underneath the classic-looking exterior is a modern frame based on the C7 Corvette Grand Sport. The British sports car has a 6.2-liter V8 engine that makes up to 454 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque.
The company that makes the green Zeclat says it can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds and keep going up to 155 mph.
Somehow, this thing from another world can be driven on the street. The French company Delage came up with the idea for the D12, and it made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2022. People have called it a “race car for the streets,” and it’s easy to see why.
Everything about this car screams high-level performance, from the cockpit that looks like a fighter jet to the extreme design language. A 7.6-liter V12 engine and an electric motor work together to make it a hybrid. The total output of the Delage D12 is 1,110 hp, which is enough to get the light car to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds.
The car company only plans to make 30 of them, and each one will cost about $2.2 million.
The Baltasar Revolt is an electric RWD supercar with 500 hp that was made by a small company in Barcelona. The company says it will only make electric cars that are tuned for the track and hopes that the Revolt will change people’s ideas about electric cars on the track.
The whole Baltasar Revolt, including the battery packs, weighs only 1,697 lbs (770 kg). All of this is because the chassis and suspension are made with a lot of carbon fiber, kevlar, and aluminum made for airplanes. The car has two electric motors, and both of them drive the back wheels.
It also has a 700V design that lets it add 62 miles of range in just 5 minutes of charging.
The Rodin FZero was only made for use on the track. That made it possible for the New Zealand company to make the “fastest track car” ever made without having to follow any rules.
The FZero has an over-the-top design that makes it clear that function is more important than style. The frame is made of carbon fiber, and the FZero weighs only 1,538 lbs (698 kg) even when it is full of fluids. That’s about 100 kg lighter than the F1 car for 2023.
The Rodin FZero has a custom 4.0-liter twin-turbo V10 engine that revs up to 10,000 rpm and makes 986 bhp. The car company wants to make 27 of them, and the first ones should be ready by the end of 2023.
Pambuffetti, an Italian company, says that its PJ-01 hypercar is the first Italian hypercar with a design “inspired by Formula 1 today.” You might want to take that statement with a “pinch of salt.”
But there’s no getting around the fact that some of the car’s design ideas came from the top racing sport. For example, the pedals are higher than the driver’s pelvis, and the push-rod suspension was made just for this car.
Pambuffetti is going to make 25 PJ-01s. Each one has a base price of $2 million, which could quickly go up based on the customization options.
