If I had to pick a category of my favorite automobiles, it would easily be exotics. Though it may be the childish or cliché choice, I have to say it's one that gets my blood going.

I have my reasons. First, supercars are always pushing boundaries from a technology stand point as well as design. Second, they're just so emotional. You haven't had an automotive experience until you've connected with an auto and today's all-new rides are tough to get attached to.

That being said, right now there's two automobiles that lay claim to being the world's first supercar.

1) The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL "Gullwing."

2) The Lamborghini Miura.

Any way you slice it, they're both exceedingly rare, worth a ton of coin and desirable for their own reason. Having said that, WHICH do YOU think was the world's FIRST supercar?
