13 Sleeper Cars That Can Outrun Supercars

What’s the difference between a sleeping beast and a sleeping beauty: you don’t want to wake the sleeping beast. The problem is when a beast is also beautiful, you might touch the tiger’s tail and realize your mistake in half a second. In the world of supercars, every second counts. They take pride in covering long distances in impressively short times. We know that some ‘sleeping beauties’ are actually beasts in disguise. For example, the Aston Martin DB11 and Audi R8 V10 supercars are proud beasts that need approximately 4 seconds to accelerate from rest to 60 mph. Their looks alone speak volumes about what they can do, but you can’t say the same about the ‘humble’ Buick Grand National GNX, which is as fast as the DB11, or the much faster BMW M550i xDrive with no claims to the supercar designation. So, next time you see a sleeping beauty, don’t be so eager to wake ‘em. You can hardly be startled by supercars with their check-me-out exterior. What you want to watch out for is the beast hidden in plain sight; they can surprise even the most seasoned gearheads. We give you 13 ultimate underdogs worthy of the crown.
