And believe it or not, sometimes you can get that from an ordinary V6.

So here are the best V6-powered supercars that can leave a V8 or even a V12 in the dust. Most of those models have engines they based on ordinary motors you can find in everyday cars. But it just goes to show how fast a car can go with a V6 and a wild designer’s imagination.
