Get out your nerd glasses because Jalopnik readers have put together a list of the ten most advanced cars mankind has ever built. We've come a long way since we invented the horseless carriage over a century ago.
10.) Nissan GT-R
Suggested By: Gamecat235
Why it's a marvel: It would have been easy for Nissan to make the GT-R very simple, and likely just as fast as it is now. All they would need are bigger tires and a bigger engine. Instead, they chose a technical route, with a twin-turbocharged V6 built to such exact specifications that it is constructed in a clean room, an extremely sensitive four-wheel-drive system, and perhaps the most advanced computer management system in any production car. For something so heavy, it is ungodly fast.
9.) Lunar Rover
Suggested By: Kiwi_Commander
Why it's a marvel: The lunar rover is not the most complicated machine. It was built in the ‘70s, and it's not much more than a very light electric buggy with wire-mesh wheels and a radio uplink. Advanced technology, however, doesn't have to be incomprehensively complex. There is brilliance in simplicity. After all, it drove on the freaking moon.
8.) Bugatti Veyron
Suggested By: Viperfan1
Why it's a marvel: Just because the Veyron can't drive on the surface of the moon doesn't mean it's not a more advanced car. The surface of earth poses a number of problems itself, especially at 253 miles an hour.
The one statistic that explains this car and the number of systems required to allow it to drive calmly and smoothly around town as well as blast up past 400kp/h, is that it has ten radiators. Think of the colossal forces involved for a car to need more cooling radiators than your house.
