Amazing Supercars Coming to Market in 2022
2022 is set to be another year of epic vehicle releases with so many exciting options hitting the pavement. The vehicles are so different, but yet extraordinary in their own way and we are excited to be adding some into the club later this year. The auto manufacturers' upper hand at the moment is innovation, and we are seeing more of that through aerodynamics, technology, autonomous driving, and more to further the cars of tomorrow. 2022 will prove to be a monumental year of vehicles and we are excited to be a part of it.
Here are the six best exotic and luxury vehicles coming in the next year.
1. Aston Martin Valkyrie
The Aston Martin Valkyrie has had a troubled route to production, but the British hypercar is finally getting there. Powered by a 6.5-liter V12 with an electric motor, it produces a ridiculous 1,139 hp. With figures like those, it's no wonder that it costs $3.2 million, yet Aston had no trouble shifting all 150 planned examples.
The automaker will also be sending the drop-top Spider variant here later in 2022 (just 85 of these will be built) while racing enthusiasts can look forward to the arrival of the track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro, which is also arriving late next year.
2. Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae
The swansong of the free-breathing V12, the Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae will arrive next year in both coupe and roadster configurations. That 6.5-liter V12 generates 769 hp and 531 lb-ft, making it even more powerful than the ludicrous Aventador SVJ. As a result, it can do 220 mph. 350 coupes will be built while roadsters will be limited to a production run of 250.
3. Ferrari 296 GTB
The first official V6 Ferrari road car is the upcoming 296 GTB, but don't let its relatively small engine fool you - this thing is stupidly powerful. The rear-wheel-drive supercar's 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 combines with an electric motor to produce a dizzying 818 hp and 546 lb-ft of torque, all of which is being sent to the rear wheels. That helped it achieve a time around Ferrari's Fiorano test track of just 1 minute 21 seconds. That will surely have you grinning ear to ear.
4. Maserati MC20
Maserati has its mojo back, and there's no better proof of that than its all-new supercar. Powered by a bespoke 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that we're told is unrelated to that of the Ferrari 296 GTB, the 2022 Maserati MC20 produces 621 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph will take under three seconds thanks to the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic providing lightning-quick shifts. Heralding a new era by being the first model to wear Maserati's redesigned Trident logo, the MC20 is critical to the Italian automaker's image. A roadster and an electric version are coming too, but don't expect to see either on the road until 2023 at the earliest.
5. Acura NSX Type S
Another vehicle coming out this year is a bona fide exotic with innovative new technologies. This car has an amazing history and was revamped with more power, more aero cleverness, and more handling ability define the Acura NSX Type S, which arrives with its 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 and three electric motors to produce 600 horsepower and 492 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive remains the drivetrain of choice with a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission handling shifts. This will most likely be the final edition made of the new NSX that was introduced back in 2017, and what a way to send it off into the sunset.
6. Mercedes-AMG SL 63
The Mercedes SL is an iconic nameplate and for the first time in several generations, we think it lives up to its legacy. This latest SL perfectly fulfills its mission to create the perfect all-around replacement for the AMG GT. Buyers looking for a car they can drive around every day and enjoy on a frequent back road blast will find little to dislike about the SL. We'd rank it right up there with our favorite GT cars on the market and can’t wait for this cabriolet to enter the market later this year.
The supercar industry is fueled by constant competition. The ego for which vehicle is faster, better, and more unique than the next. As consumers we get a wide array of options to choose from, but the dilemma of missing out on all the others.
