Donut Media’s Top 10 Supercars From the ’80s

By -

Pop culture aside, these 10 supercars show exactly why the ’80s were a truly great time to be alive!

We’re living in the midst of a technological revolution where cars are quickly becoming computers and vice versa – think driverless cars.

An '80s DeTomaso Pantera GT5.

But most of the advanced technology we enjoy today was pioneered at some point in the past. Hybrid engines, radar-based cruise control, self-driving technology; it all got its start in another time. For most the most part, that time was the ’80s.

The flamboyant decade not only pioneered great technology, it also gave birth to some of the wildest and most noteworthy supercars ever. These machines adorned endless bedroom walls in poster form, acting as automotive wet dreams for millions of enthusiasts around the world.

As this video from the folks at Donut Media shows, the sweetest machinery of the ’80s is still worthy of praise today. More precisely, the video highlights the following supercars:

  • 1984 Isdera Imperator 180i
  • 1987 Buick GNX
  • 1989 De Tomaso Pantera GT5
  • 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO
  • 1980 BMW M1
  • 1988 Koenig Competition
  • 1986 Porsche 959
  • 1987 Ferrari F40
  • 1987 RUF CTR “Yellowbird”
  • 1985 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV

While the Countach and F40 are the most popular among enthusiasts, the video also features some little-known speed demons like the De Tomaso Pantera and RUF’s Porsche-based “Yellowbird.”
