Are you super big on supercars? Does your knowledge out-accelerate everyone else's? These exciting vehicles push the limits of what's possible for the automobile, but they can also really test the limits of what you know. Supercars are truly amazing vehicles.

We've all wanted to drive one. Who wouldn't want to have that car that the valets fight over when you pull up to a restaurant?

But what does it take to be considered a supercar? There isn't an official definition, but many in the automotive industry have agreed on some loose standards. To qualify as a supercar, a vehicle must either be a grand tourer (GT) or sports car. That means luxury full-size sedans, SUVs, and other vehicles aren't included in this definition. Supercars generally are much faster, more powerful, quicker and considerably more expensive than other cars.

While quite a few supercars come from Europe, thanks in large part to Ferrari and Lamborghini, a growing number hail from other parts of the world. What's more, electrification is opening up new possibilities, so what we previously thought wasn't attainable is now becoming more common.

You'll need to push the envelope of your automotive knowledge for this test. Are you ready. Take the quiz now!
