Technology has elevated performance cars to a point never thought possible. Did you ever think you’d live in an age of sub 3-second 0-60 mph times and 9-second quarter miles? We sure didn’t – but that’s not to take away from the supercars of yesteryear.
For brief period in time, supercars were technologically advanced but remained fairly analog relative to the hybrid, automatic transmission performance vehicles of today. This resulted in some blisteringly fast yet still connected supercars, many of which are highly revered and sought after today. Examples of these cars include the Ferrari F40, Ferrari F50 and the Lamborghini Diablo.
Back in 2000, Japan’s Best Motoring rounded up those three analog supercars for a three-way comparison test to see which of the three was fastest. The test included a brief overview and city drive of each car, along with an acceleration test. The cars proved to be fast – even by today’s standards, but which of them emerged victorious? You’ll have to check out the video embedded above to find out.
