30 Obscure Supercars Many Car Fans Never Heard Of

  1. Factory Five Racing GTM

Factory Five Racing is best known for its Shelby Cobra kits which are high-quality reproductions they do with enthusiast love. However, in 2007, the company made a move to the supercar market with the GTM. This is a modern car with a Kevlar body and aluminum chassis powered by a Corvette V8 engine.

Also, it comes with lots of components like a drivetrain and suspension they derived from the Corvette, making it relatively affordable, yet easy to work on and maintain. Due to its lightness and power, the GTM is fast with 0 to 60 mph times of around three seconds and a top speed of over 180 mph.

  1. Devon GTX

Devon conceived this car to be the ultimate American sports car using a Dodge Viper RT10 base and engine with numerous modifications. Also, they upgrade the power to 650 HP. The GTX used the same six-speed manual with improved performance and top speed. It even broke a few track records during testing, but they never officially confirmed that.

Unfortunately, the economic downturn and recession of 2009 and 2010 hit the car industry especially hard, which caused big problems among car makers. So, Chrysler decided to kill the Viper project and discontinue the production of its platforms and engines. And that had a devasting effect on Devon’s production of the GTX.

  1. Covini C6W

The wild-looking Covini C6W is an Italian super sports car that features twin front axles and a rear mounted V8 engine. The four front wheels are for turning and braking, while the engine powers the rear wheels.

The C6W comes with a 4.2-liter V8 engine that delivers 440 HP by Audi. The exact performance figures are not exact, but they should be similar to current supercars. And that is because the Covini is light 2,645 pounds due to its space frame chassis and carbon fiber body. They introduced the production version in 2004. Although the car is currently in production, it is unclear how many of them they have made.

  1. Argyll GT

Behind this strange name lies the Scottish-built supercar from the late ‘70s. Interestingly, this car was a compilation of different parts from different cars. In fact, it had a Renault 30 V6 engine and a Triumph 2500 suspension and axles.

Despite the initial interest from many customers and the promise of a turbocharged version, the company folded. And although the exact numbers of cars they produced remain unknown, it is definitely low.

These are the top 30 ultra rare and obscure supercars most people never heard of, but you’re not one of them. Which was your favorite of them all? If you can afford one of these, you’ll leave them in the dust at every stoplight.
