Looking back, 2019 was a great year for sports cars. Some great and memorable cars such as the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, Toyota Supra, Ferrari 488 Pista, Aston Martin DBS Superlegerra, and the McLaren 600LT were released. There were also some underwhelming vehicles that came out as well but for the most part it was a good year for the automobile industry.
In 2020, the cars that are coming out will be even better than last year’s. They will be faster, lighter and more powerful than ever. They will also be a little weirder with some unusual features.
