2023 has a lineup of incredible cars releasing. With the introduction of more and more EVs coming into the market, we’ll show you the best of petrol, hybrid and electric cars with blistering performance and top of the range specifications.
Koenigseggs offering for hypercar of the year is the Jesko, a 1,600hp monster that is capable of 300mph. Although it’s a step up from regular supercars, we felt Koenigegg is breaking boundaries in the automotive industry and our list couldn’t be complete without a mention. There are two versions of the Jesko, the high speed spec and a track only spec, with huge amounts of downforce to carry speeds through the corners. With a new carbon fibre and aluminium chassis, new suspension components, new engine and gearbox, the Jesko is sure to be contender for car of the year.
One of the most controversial cars that got announced this year is due to be delivered in 2023. Tesla’s highest ever spec sheet car breaks all records with outrageous claims of performance and speed which we thought just weren’t possible. The 0-60mph should supposedly only take 1.9 seconds and the 0-100mph sprint should be a mere 4.2 seconds. Top speed is north of 250 mph in this tiny car, all from electric power only. We can’t wait to see one in action, as this will probably be the most talked about car for a while.
The long awaited Mercedes-Benz AMG Project One is soon to hit the streets in 2023. After many delays, the F1 derived hypercar uses a 1.6 litre V6 hybrid engine, producing over 1000 horsepower and a top speed of over 217 mph. The Project One incorporates an electric turbo, four electric motors and a redline of 11000 rpm, insane! Using Mercedes’ 4MATIC+ system, the Project One is a beast on street and track, with crazy amounts of technology from Formula 1 being introduced.
The final iteration of the Audi R8 is the R8 GT. Since the successor will be all electric, Audi have gone all out on the final version of the V10 powered supercar as a last hurrah. The R8 GT is a more powerful, lighter and special edition of a standard car, with a large rear wing and RWD drivetrain. Only 333 will be built, like the previous generation, and only 15 will be coming to the UK. Power is up to 611 hp and 417 lb ft of torque, with 0-60 mph taking 3.4 seconds. The top speed is a touch under 200 mph, which makes us wonder if Audi could have eked out an extra 1mph for the last R8? Starting from around £200,000, this or a used Huracan?
Aston Martin storms into 2023 with a complete refresh of its model lineup, in particular the V12 Vantage. This limited edition GT features Aston Martin’s famous 5.2 litre twin turbo V12 but this time in the brand's smallest coupe. Like the R8 Gt mentioned before, this model is limited to just 330 units, with the price unconfirmed, but don't be surprised to pay upwards of £300,000 for one. The shift to electric is one Aston Martin is putting off for as long as it can, as V12 engines are becoming a thing of the past.
