What is the most superlative of all the supercars since the dawn of car heaven?

Your learned opinion counts, so your vote counts.

The Brits who run the Classic and Sports Car Show are running a global election for the greatest supercars of all time.

What’s the criteria?  Most beautiful; most fastest; greatest technological advances; most expensive, most exotic?

First let’s define our terms:  a supercar.  Expensive beyond belief seems like an appropriate benchmark.

Organizers of the show are pitting decade against decade nominating cars all the way back to the 1900s.  Among their selections are the 1908 Mercedes Grand Prix racer, the Alfa Romeo 8C to represent the 1930s, the Mercedes-Benz 300SL gullwing to represent the 1950s, the Lamborghini Miura to represent the 1960s, the Ferrari F40 for the 1980s, and the McLaren P1 for the 2010s.

Miura’s svelte bodywork cloaked a V-12 power plant mounted sideways behind driver and passenger that made mellifluous sound unlike the Ferrari wail.

Biggest consensus is for the 90’s: McLaren F1:  82% + Who can argue with that?  Choosing the Veyron for the 2000s, seems very obvious.  What about the Koenigsegg?
