The likes of Ferrari and McLaren have been designing remarkable road cars for decades now, with varying success. However, equally important to speed and power is the popularity of the supercar.
With this in mind, leading private reg provider Click4Reg sought to establish, once and for all, the most popular supercar of the 21st century. To define popularity, Click4Reg extracted global average monthly searches, hashtags on Instagram and the number of views per supercar on TikTok and each result was given a score out of 10, overall ranking the 20 best supercars!
Key findings include:
- With a colossal 220 million TikTok views and over 1.3 million Instagram pictures, the Aventador scores a winning 8.89/10.
- In 2nd and 4th place are cars made by British manufacturer McLaren, the only UK manufacturer in the top 10.
- The Bugatti Veyron, now a venerable 17 years old, still performs well on social media and Google search trends, scoring a very respectable 7.62/10.
- Last of the top 10 is the Audi R8 V10. Whilst getting over 433,000 hashtags, the R8 V10 only has a small 60,000 searches per month, relegating it to last place with a score of 5.24/10.
