Top 10 cars of 2007 + Movies to watch + Did You Know + Where are these guys?

The cars you are about to view will probably make some of you hunger so badly for some serious mooooney! They are the Supercars of 2007...May I drive one of these cars...or something close to it, in my lifetime...amen! lol....check them out!
1. Audi R8
Top speed: 187mph - 0-60mph: 4.5 seconds Max power: 420BHP
Price: £76,825 For an extra £830, the R8 comes with seats that adjust electronically in every direction. The suspension system adjusts itself to suit the road conditions. Even though Audi is frantically knocking out 15 R8s a day, you won't be able to get one until mid-2008!

2. SSC Ultimate Aero TT
Top speed: 240mph - 0-60mph: 2.78 seconds Max power: 1,183BHP

Price: £400,000 Although its official top speed is 240mph, SSC reckons the Aero TT will actually do 270mph. If this is true, it would make it the fastest car in the world, ahead of the 252mph Bugatti Veyron. However, when it was tested in Nevada earlier this year, bad weather meant it "only" reached 221mph. It's power is awesome. When the driver changed into sixth gear at 190mph, the wheels span.

3. Porsche 911 GT3 RS
Top speed: 193mph - 0-60mph: 3.6 seconds Max power: 415BHP
Price: £88,000 The GT3 RS has the same power as the normal GT3 but, at 1,375kg, it is 20kg lighter. This means the RS is 0.1 secs faster than a standard GT3 from 0-60. The GT3 RS comes in either black or silver but, as an option, you can also get it in bright orange or green.

4. Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
Top speed: 196mph - 0-60mph: 3.8 seconds Max power: 522BHP
Price: £150,000 With a 5.0-litre V10 that produces a healthy 522bhp, the Superleggera comes with 10bhp more than the standard Gallardo. It is also much lighter than the standard model because most of the bodywork is carbon fibre and most of the glass has been replaced with lighter clear plastic. The braking's a bit better, too - from 60mph to standstill, this car stops one metre before the standard version.

5. Beck LM800
Top speed: 210mph - 0-60mph: 3.2 seconds Max power: 650BHP - Price: £310,000 It's made in Switzerland, the home of watches and cuckoo clocks. It's made using the lightest materials on earth to improve performance. The 4.2-litre V8 produces 650bhp, but special editions - 850bhp and 1,000bhp - can be ordered.

6. Dodge Viper SRT-10
Top speed: 190mph - 0-60mph: 4.0 seconds Max power: 600BHP

Price: £65,000 The new Dodge Viper has the most ridiculous engine the car's ever had - a brand new 8.4-litre V10! It's not what you'd call shy on the power front either, pushing out a monumental 600bhp! Massive 14in Brembo brake discs mean the SRT-10 can go from 60mph to standstill in under 100 feet!

7. Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 60th Anniversary
Top speed: 196mph - 0-60mph: 4.2 seconds Max power: 540BHP
Price: £130,000 This limited-edition Scaglietti was designed for Ferrari's 60th anniversary. Only 60 will be made. The coolest new edition is what Ferrari calls the "electrochromic glass roof". Basically, it's a clear roof in which the darkness can be adjusted at the touch of a button. How cool is that?

8. Locus Plethore
Top speed: 205mph - 0-60mph: 3.5 seconds Max power: 750BHP

Price: £140,000 Canada's first supercar for 30 years uses a Chevrolet V8 engine that can be tuned up to 1,300bhp. It's rumoured that the new model of the car will feature a central driving position. Fancy one on your drive? Well, the good news is that it'll set you back a pretty reasonable £140,000.

9. McLaren Mercedes SLR 722
Top speed: 209.4mph - 0-60mph: 3.5 seconds Max power: 650BHP
Price: £350,000 The 722 is the even faster version of the already quick SLR. It's got 650bhp, and it's 2mph faster! The "722" is a nod to the Mille Miglia race of 1955, when Stirling Moss (ask your dad) won in an SLR that carried the number 722. Before its release this year, potential customers were invited to test the car at the Paul Ricard Circuit where most F1 teams do their testing.

10. Aston Martin Vanquish Ultimate Edition
Top speed: 201mph - 0-60mph: 4.7 seconds Max power: 520BHP - Price: £182,095 The Ultimate Edition is a slightly tweaked version of the already amazing Vanquish S. Only 40 of these badboys were made, all of which were snapped up within weeks of their release. The main change is the colour - this version comes in Ultimate Black, the only Aston it's used on. Customers are able to request a stick-shift gearbox, as opposed to the normal paddleshift one.

I know most guys are already dreaming of the day they can even touch the wheels, tyres etc of any of these cars...dreams come true sha! lol

Those cars are really hot, but how "green" are they? Cars today are really being graded according to their "green-ness" i.e enviromentally friendly (relatively)both in function and materials used to make the car plus ability to make use of other sources of biodegradable fuel/power.
In our part of the world, we haven't begun to care about the enviroment but if one can afford it,why not go for a beautiful "green" car and save our ailing earth.
