5 Supercars I'd Love to Have in My Garage
In my wildest dreams, I have a big enough garage to fill all of my favourite vehicles and motorcycles. Though reality kicks in and I realize that the one assigned parking stall in my condo is all that I can get away with now.
But if I were to start my supercar collection, it would look a little something like this…
Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible
When the Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible launched it claimed the title to the fastest production Bentley drop top to date. An impressive 6.0L, twin-turbo W12 engine kicks some seriously fast butt. There’s a whopping 626 horsepower and 605 lb-ft of torque awaiting your prompts via an 8-speed automatic transmission, complete with paddle shifters.
Just by looking at it, it’s not a svelte vehicle. But that W12 handles the 2,900 kg (6,393 lbs.) weight of the vehicle with no qualms.
Whether going for a quick drive or a road trip, I’d be happy to take the GT Speed Convertible for the adventure.
Mercedes-AMG GT S
Normally, I’m not a huge fan of the long hoods on vehicles; think Camaro, Corvette, Ferrari FF, etc., but I’ll give the Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS a pass on this round.
Okay, it’s not ideal when driving around a congested urban setting. But take this supercar out of the city, put it on a track or back country road, and revel in the hand-built craftsmanship of the 4.0L, biturbo V8 with a generous 510 horsepower via Mercedes’ AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission.
The 0-100km/h time of 3.8 seconds isn’t anything to scoff at either.

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS
You might be wondering why I didn’t pick the Turbo, or event he GT3/GT2 RS. Or you’re not! Either way, the Carrera 4 GTS – either coupe or cabriolet – is, pretty much everything I need in a Porsche. Unless I’m in need of more trunk/frunk space, in which case I’d opt for the Cayenne.
The horizontally opposed, 3.8L, six-cylinder engine around back breeds 425 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque.
In the supercar game, it’s not the most endowed but it’s not always about size.
McLaren 650S Spider
A supercar list isn’t complete without something from the UK. The McLaren 650S Spider makes the list because of its majestic design and road-friendly nature.
Sitting but a few inches above the pavement, you have X-ACTO knife-like precision when it comes to steering input.
The 3.8L, twin turbo V8 puts out 641 bhp and 641 lb-ft of torque.
And if you ever get a chance to put the 329 km/h max speed to the test, surely you’ll have a smile plastered across your face.
Ferrari 488 GTB
There’s an ongoing theme that I love turbocharged V8-powered vehicles. The Ferrari 488GTB is no exception.
With a 0-100km/h time of 3.0 seconds, the 3.9L, V8 puts out 661 horsepower through its dual-clutch seven-speed transmission.
