Itís not a defined set of criteria such as RWD, mid-engined, etc. because like I said, the lines are blurry & subjective. I think the first key Ďingredientí is the manufacturerís intention to produce a performance car two steps above ordinary; finely tuned, not mass produced, and no compromises on materials or manufacturing processes. But a supercar isnít strictly about performance, it must also balance performance with looks, refinedness and comfort.

Then there must also be a distinction between supercar and grand tourer. This can be defined by looking at the manufacturerís compromises on weight for refinedness/comfort vs performance. Cars like Aston Martins or SL63s fall out of the supercar class and into GT.
