R35 is not a supercar say EVO

Was looking at the EVO list of supercars:

Car data | New and used performance and supercar data | evo

GTR is not on it but Lotus Esprit, 996 turbo, 20 other Pork, and other lesser cars are.

Is this list just badge snobbery? or are EVO correct...

Yet they did a group test with one against the Veyron...

Also tested it vs a Lotus Evora.

I'd say they haven't listed it as one because it doesn't look like a traditional supercar normally does.

There are super cars and hyper cars.....

I guess they put the GTR in the performance saloon section??? With the C63, M3, RS5, M5 etc??

It's between a supercar and hyper car!

As far as I am concerned they can call it anything they want...every supposed supercar is going to get a bit nervous when one appears in the rear view mirror....I think it should be called 'Jesus'....that's what most supercar owners are going to say when you overtake them

in an early review...I think it might have been April '08, they do refer to it as a supercar

Evo doesn't think it's a super car neither do the majority of ppl who responded to my poll.....I think we can be certain the gtr is not a supercar!!!

I think they have explained the reasoning before

I know what they mean I guess. Its a 4 seat coupe rather than a low slung mid-engined monster. No need to be defensive about it, the vanilla 911 is classified as a sports coupe as well. GT2s and 3s make it though.
Doesnt mean it cant destroy most of the supercars in a straight line though and if we add some bendy bits.............well
Its not expensive, rare or impractical enough to be a supercar in most peoples eyes and all the better for it imo

If your wife or girlfriend was seriously hot and someone told you they didn't fancy her, would you take much notice?

EVO isn't a bad read but it certainly isn't gospel. You've got to appreciate any car for what it is, not what other peoples views on it are.

Not a bad analogy. If your wife "performed" better than any other woman, but wasn't officially a supermodel, would you complain?
