Supercars are a perfect combination of luxury, style, performance, and high speed. They’re considered to be masterpieces that are produced by car manufacturers. These supercars have come a long way, and they’re still hitting the market with a huge bang.
But despite their high speed and high performance, they still tend to have a few disadvantages when it comes to reliability. With the increase in demand and rise in competition among car manufacturers, they’ve tried their best to make these superfast supercars even more reliable.
More people are now buying these vehicles, and every car reviewer out there is getting his or her hands on one supercar or the other, trying to rate it from the perspective of the average buyer.
More importantly, buyers are now demanding more worth for their money. This means that there are fewer people who are ready and willing to spend a million dollars on a car that’ll cost a million more just to service and repair.
However, manufacturers out there are still providing weak supercars. Yes, their engines might roar louder than a lion in the Serengeti, but then, the car might choke to a garage right after it.
In this article, we’ve prepared a list of 10 supercars that were built to crumble and 10 that turned out so reliable because they were built like tanks. So, read on.
20. BUILT TO CRUMBLE: 1995 VECTOR M12
This luxury sports car was launched in the year 1995, but it quickly came to an end in the year 1999 due to its low sales record. With five years in production, only 17 units were built. Simply put, it was overpriced for the poor quality it came in.
Vector M12’s engine was based on the Lamborghini Diablo and was able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
The build quality of the Vector M12 was, however, made of cheap fiberglass, making it extremely unreliable.
Despite being more road-friendly and fuel efficient than some supercars of its time, this car wasn’t a hit and was named the worst car ever tested by the ‘Autoweek’ magazine.
19. BUILT TO CRUMBLE: 1978 LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH
The Lamborghini Countach is a supercar every teenager still dreams of owning. Launched in 1974, this Supercar has gained huge popularity from car enthusiasts and buyers.
The 1978 Lamborghini Countach LS400 S model went through major changes in the engine, tires, and exteriors. All these components were downgraded, which was considered as a huge setback for this model. This Countach LP400 S model saw three series of limited-edition supercars only getting sold, which were all considered to have poor quality when compared to its class. Thus, sadly, the famous and glorified Lamborghini Countach had to make the list of cars that were built to crumble.
