A Lamborghini that blasts from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds. A Ford Mustang with a top speed north of 200 mph. A Pagani that can be yours for a mere $1.5 million. These are just a few of the latest exotic roadsters to race off the assembly line and into the fast lane. Supercar Superbuild shows the genesis of the most desirable four-wheeled machines on the planet, how they came to be, the risks involved to bring them to life, and the results that happen when childhood imagination, artisan design, and peak performance come together.

|7||HDClosed CaptioningVideoViper||It is a car that never should have been born. It wasn't strategically rational. It wasn't financially plausible. It wasn't even corporately approved.

Their answer: the Porsche 918 Spyder, the first true hybrid supercar, a leaner, greener 887-horsepower supercar with a top speed of 211 mph and the ability to blast from 0-60 in less than 2.8 seconds. And the cost: a mere $845,000.||45:41||$2.99||View in iTunes|
