Pretty much sums it up right here. Super cars are designed from the initial Design Review Board for the intent to be a super car. Materials, chassis design, engine development/placement are designed for speed/handling and cost is a very low factor since it will have that super car title. Would you ever consider a widebody Mazda Miata with a turbo Ls1 prepped for the track a super car? It could certainly devastate most supercars in almost every performance specification but at the end of the's still a Miata ya know.

"High End Sports Car" seems to fit the bill for a FI M.
