There are three guarantees in life: death, taxes and plenty of new sports cars being released every year, and 2021 will be no different when it comes to the latter.
In fact, some of the models on the way have truly iconic nameplates, so needless to say, you should be on the edge of your seat if you’re in the market for a little bit of fun. Read on.
Either way, the coupe is sticking with natural aspiration and forgoing a mooted move to turbocharging. That said, power and torque are still up, but not by that much.
The new Alpine A110S represented the second coming of the reborn French brand when it was released in June, promising genuine driving thrills for buyers.
For the first time, the Chevrolet Corvette is being built in right-hand drive, and it will sold locally from late 2021, with the new-generation ‘C8’ Stingray grade to kick things off here.
The mid-engined supercar will be the crown jewel in newly established GMSV showrooms, with it powered by a thumping 6.2-litre LT2 naturally aspirated V8 with 369kW/637Nm.
As far as aspirational flagship models go, the new Maserati MC20 has a very important role to play, especially for a brand that has been in need of fresh metal for years now.
Well, the coupe will come to play when it arrives in the second half of 2021, with its mid-mounted 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 punching out a considerable 463kW and 730Nm of torque.
Now this is sinister. The new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series will be released in the second quarter of 2021, but it won’t be looking forward to spending any time on public roads.
Instead, the coupe will be seeking out a racetrack, where it can unleash the full potential of its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, which uses to a flatplane to dish out a crazy 537kW and 800Nm.
The new Ford Mustang Mach 1 is in Australia after all, although the latest flagship pony car is limited to just 700 units after entering showrooms in June.
Much like the highly popular Bullitt before, this track-focused Fastback coupe has an upgraded 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 petrol engine, punching out 345kW/556Nm.
Only 18 examples will be up for grabs, but buyers will be rewarded with a 22kW power boost, to 397kW, and a plethora of racing-inspired upgrades. Yep, the Q just got (more) serious.
