There is no accounting for people's taste or opinions.

I'm sure that there are those who consider the M3 a Supercar.

I am also sure that there are those who consider Kanye West a musician.


Edit:

Now that I think about a bit the M3 is closer to being a supercar than Kanye West is to being a musician so maybe that was not such a good analogy,

Sports/performance sedan.

Personally, I wouldn't consider anything sub $250k a supercar. I guess it's relative to the individual.

Cool It's Super "Nice"

The F8x is not unique, but maybe expensive in comparison to average cars. While I think the car is Super nice, it is by no means a super car, I would reserve that term for the likes of Pagani or similar.

Let us know what you win..

No way

I would say +$200K is a supercar.

I would say more exotic than super for the Pagani or similar and leave super for the M's only.

Hahahaha!

Super car is a title reserved for like the top 3% of cars or something that is groundbreaking or on the edge of technology, such as the new Tesla Roadster "concept".

M3 is just a fast grocery getter. Not even close to supercar status.

A 911 Turbo is a borderline supercar. Anything below it is not, IMO.
This is a pretty good example of the definition for discussions.

Using price as a measure would put cars like the Rolls Royce, Bentley, AMG G65, etc. into the Supercar status. I don't believe that they are.

How about anything not capable of 200 mph shouldn't be a supercar.

Supercar: Exotic Drivetrain. Bespoke chassis. Class redefining performance upon introduction of the car and its competition. Rare. Coachbuilt. Prone to draw non-car-people as gawkers.

Nope. F8x does not fit this bill.

The M4 is not a super car, but it is a German muscle car.

How about a super high-performance sport sedan? This way the word super can be included.

I was going to say ultra high-performance sport sedan, but where does that leave the M5, and E63?

To be sure, the F8X is certainly a super fun car.

Back in my day, supercars were the bee's knees. Nowadays the kids are driving electric thingamajigs, $80,000 pickup trucks, Hypercars...I can't keep up.

Not a supercar but certainly a super car and btw it will blow away most supercars from the last century.

So true . A Ford Raptor is more desirable than a supercar cause it will roll over all the potholes and prepare you for the zombie apocalypse. Times change.
