The 2000s was a beautiful time for the supercar as great technological advancements allowed carmakers to take their high-performance cars to unexplored heights.

In order to celebrate the cars launched throughout the decade, Donut Media has put together the following video of what it believes are the best 10 supercars from the era.

In 10th place, we have the Saleen S7, a car that was short-lived, but unlike anything else to ever come out of the United States. Next is the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, a supercar that competed with the Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari Enzo, but offered much more practicality and comfort. On the eighth spot we find the Porsche Cayman-based Ruf CTR3, a 224-mph (360km/h) animal.

Taking home seventh place is the 2004 Ford GT, followed by the Lamborghini Murcielago SV, a car we’d actually place a few spots higher on the list. Rounding out the top five are the Koenigsegg CCXR, Gumpert Apollo S, Porsche Carrera, GT, Ferrari Enzo, and in 1st, the iconic Bugatti Veyron (no surprises there).

Do you agree with the list or do you think other supercars are worthier of making the top 10?

Mercedes-Benz has completely transformed Maybach yet again.

From a stand-alone brand it revived in 1997 to compete with (VW's) Bentley and (BMW's) Rolls-Royce, Daimler has now turned Maybach into a high-end sub-brand, standing alongside AMG in transforming “ordinary” Benzes into even more desirable and expensive sets of wheels.

The majority of supercars may come from dedicated manufacturers: marques like Lamborghini and McLaren that make nothing but supercars.

Some of the most interesting that have come and gone over the years, however, have been produced by automakers that focus most of their resources on more common forms of wheeled transportation.

There was a time, not so long ago, when there was a limit to how much you could spend on a sport-utility vehicle. And that limit came under the $100,000 mark. But those times are far behind us.

2016 was a good year for supercars. Over the course of the year, the new Ford GT and Acura NSX commenced production in North America, Ferrari introduced the LaFerrari Aperta roadster, Lamborghini the updated Aventador S, Bugatti the long-awaited Chiron, and McLaren the 675LT Spider that could be its most exciting model to date.

But as exciting as 2016 was, we're looking forward even more to what the 2017 has in store.

The Last Of The Naturally Aspirated Supercars 28

Love it or hate it, the naturally aspirated engine is going the way of the Pontiac. There's just too many reasons for automakers to add turbochargers and hybrid systems to their cars for the unadulterated engine to stick around much longer in all but the most isolated of cases.

And that, we're sorry to say, can be seen in no segment more vividly than among supercars.

Automotive trends come and go. These days it's all about oddly shaped crossover (faux) coupes. Before that, carmakers were clamoring to make hard-top convertibles. But a few years back, an unusual breed of boxy hatchback/wagon/crossover/things were all the rage – among Japanese automakers, anyway.

2016 will undoubtedly be remembered for a lot of things, even within the confines of the automotive industry.

Hyundai spun off the Genesis line as its own luxury brand. Toyota pulled the plug on Scion. Bugatti revealed the Chiron as the successor to the legendary Veyron. Aston Martin launched the DB11, and with it a new era for the company. But we'll recall 2016 as the year in which exotic automakers replaced their chief executives.

These Supercars Aren’t Made Where You Think They Are 26

The mainstream, mass-market automakers that drive the industry have long since broken beyond the borders of the countries in which they're based.

That Toyota you're driving, for instance, was probably made in America, not in Japan. The Fiat 500 may be quintessentially Italian, but it's made in Poland and Mexico. And despite its all-American image, the Jeep Renegade is made in Italy.
