Today the word “hypercar” brings to mind some of the world’s top-performing machinery, such as the McLaren P1, Porsche 918, and Ferrari LaFerrari. The upcoming Aston Martin/Red Bull AM-RB oo1 and the F1-powered Mercedes-AMG aim to go beyond even those cars’ extraordinary abilities. But the word “hyper-car” wasn’t always defined this way; back in the early 1990s, a hyper-car was what proponents called the earth-saving conveyances they imagined for the future—ultralight, aerodynamically radical, made with advanced lightweight materials, and potentially packing a hybrid power train with a super-high-efficiency engine.
