When you’re driving a supercar, which can go at immense speeds, you want to know that your vehicle is as safe as it can possibly be. Over the years, there have been a lot of supercars made that have been less than optimum in the safety stakes, but there have also been many great cars, which have offered speed and safety in one very sleek package. Here are some of the best:
The Ford GT
If you’re looking for something a little more modern, as in 2017, then you can’t go wrong with the Ford GT. Probably the best supercar to have been released this year, this beautiful little beast, not only packs the power of a 3.5 liter twin turbo V6 engine, and not only is it one of the most aerodynamic cars out there, but it also boasts a number of excellent safety features, including Electronic Stability Control, front and rear parking sensors, Collision Prevention Assist and Curtain 1st Row Airbags and that’s just scratching the surface!
The Pagani Zonda F
The Pagani Zonda F was when it was released undoubtedly one of the best supercars for people who had never driven supercars before, It was extremely easy to handle, even at speed and it’s wheels, and braking systems were as reliable as they come.
The BMW M5
The BMW M5 is one for those who love a little luxury and have a lot of money to drop on their ride. The latest, redesigned version of the vehicle, which hit the streets this year and caused a whole lot of positive buzz in luxury car circles, is an amazing example of what can be done with a little aluminium and carbon fiber. Despite having a 4.4-liter V8 engine and an extremely impressive output of 600 horsepower, this vehicle, which will set you back in excess of $100,000 is also one of the safest.
Why is it so safe? Airbags for everyone, Lane Departure Warning, Cross-Traffic Alert Systems, night vision and traction control to mention just a few things! Basically, this car has all of the little extras that make driving not just a little, but a whole lot safer to do. Check out its safety report, and you’ll know that if you’re driving this supercar, you’ll be safe as houses.
The Porsche 911 Turbo
An absolute classic of the supercar world and often the first car that comes to mind when you think of luxury vehicles, the Porsche 911 Turbo is also one of the safest vehicles of its kind ever to have been created. It’s so easy to drive safely, even if you aren’t used to high speeds, due to the panoramic views its windshield offers, but also because of it’s perfect acceleration and flawless steering, along with some of the tightest brakes you’ll find in any car. Not only that, but the Porsche Stability Management System is second to none, ensuring that when you’re driving this vehicle, you aren’t going to end up getting into a skid and spending your days consulting with a car accident attorney. It really is one of the most stable and reliable supercars we’ve ever seen and we’ve seen a lot of them!
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan
The Italians are known for their luxury, and this model certainly doesn’t disappoint on that front – it’s sleek, lightweight and comes with custom tires as well as an enviable interior – but more importantly, they have done a good job of creating speedy cars that don’t compromise safety. The new Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan is no exception. With features like daytime running lights, child safety locks, rollover protection bars, night vision, fog lamps and tire pressure monitoring equipment, you are less likely to get into difficulty, much less a serious crash that requires medical attention and a wrecking crew, driving this beauty than you are many of the other supercars in the same budget range. If you have the money to spend, then this should be one to seriously consider.
When you’re buying a supercar, you may have little more than speed and style on your mind, but it pays to think a little about safety too. After all, you can never be too careful – accidents on the road are all too common – and it’s never been easier to look up the specs and crash test ratings for any vehicles you might be interested in buying. Of course, you’ll need to ensure that you’re equipped to handle such power on the road too – the cars can’t do everything for you!
