Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake
??? Cubic Feet
With production limited to just 99 units, Aston Martin hasn’t published the luggage capacity for the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake. Judging from images of the limited-run machine, there’s quite a bit of room to put junk in the trunk. There’s even a power tailgate for an even easier time of loading stuff in the back. With only two seats on the inside, there’s no need to lower the rear bench to maximize the cargo space.
Aston Martin doesn’t publicly publish the price for the Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake, but the figure doesn’t really matter because the company has buyers for the entire production run. The two-door wagon can hit 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 201 mph thanks to a 5.9-liter naturally aspirated V12.
Aston Martin DB11
10.0 Cubic Feet
The Aston Martin DB11 is probably one of the prettiest products to come from Aston’s Gaydon, U.K. headquarters in a long while. It’s sleek, stunning, and quick as hell thanks to a twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 that produces 600 horsepower. But it’s also surprisingly usable when comparing supercars and sporty coupes.
With 10 cubic feet, the DB11 just makes our cut of supercars with usable trunk space. But those 10 cubes can fit two small suitcases and two duffle bags. The company offers the custom four-piece luggage set, with those pieces, that fits perfectly in the rear of the DB11.
Mercedes-AMG GT R
10.1 Cubic Feet
The Mercedes-AMG GT R uses a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 to produce 577 horsepower. It has a massive rear wing, a number of aggressive vents and diffusers up front, and even an optional “Green Hell Mango” paint job. By all accounts, this is an aggressive vehicle.
But consider this: the AMG GT R has 10.1 cubic feet of trunk space. The front-mounted V8 frees up enough room in the rear for small suitcases, or maybe a pair of duffle bags. The company even offers a custom set of AMG duffle bags that have tire marks from the GT R. No, seriously.
10.3 Cubic Feet
Few convertible supercars make this list simply because their removable roof means sacrificing space in the rear. But not the Ferrari Portofino. With the roof up, the hardtop Ferrari has 10.3 cubic feet of trunk space – besting the Aston Martin DB11 Volante, which has just over seven cubic feet of space. And like a handful of other cars on this list, Ferrari offers a tailored two-piece luggage set that fits perfectly in the boot.
Ferrari doesn't say how much space is available with the roof retracted, though. But who cares, the Portofino's twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 produces 600 horsepower and 651 pound-feet of torque, making it fun with or without a roof.
Ferrari 812 Superfast
11.3 Cubic Feet
Ferrari unveiled the 812 Superfast in 2017 as a successor to the beloved F12berlinetta. With a front-mounted 6.5-liter V12 producing 778 horsepower and 529 pound-feet of torque, and the ability to hit 60 in 2.8 seconds, this fast Ferrari lives up to its name.
But compare the 812's trunk space to some of its competitors. Though it may not be the most capacious on this list, the 11.3 cubic feet makes this supercar super spacious, too, relatively speaking. The 812 even comes with a custom two-piece luggage set designed by Poltrona Frau that fits perfectly behind the cabin.
Aston Martin Vantage
12.4 Cubic Feet
While smaller than the DB11, the current Aston Martin Vantage actually has a bit more cargo space than the than its big brother. With 12.4 cubic feet, it ranks around the middle of this group. Still, there should be plenty of room for the two occupants to carry enough luggage for a weekend getaway.
The Mercedes-AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 produces 503 hp, but spy shots show that a more powerful S variant is on the way with a rumored output of around 550 hp.
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
15.0 Cubic Feet
The only American car on our list, the Corvette ZR-1 offers owners a mammoth 15.0 cubic feet of cargo storage beneath its hatchback. That’s by design, as Chevy bestowed the Corvette with enough storage space to hold the car’s removable targa top. That’s right, not only do you get more trunk space than in most sedans, but your ZR-1 supercar’s roof also pops off and fits in there.
As for its performance credentials, the ZR-1 has a supercar-like starting price of $123,000 and features a supercharged V8 that produces 755 horsepower. That’s good for a top speed of 212 miles per hour, which grants it irrefutable entry into the supercar club.
7.8 (Rear) / 5.3 (Front) Cubic Feet
The 570GT, with a total of 13.1 cubic feet, has plenty of space for a supercar. Of those 13.1 cubic feet, you'll find 7.8 cubes in the rear and 5.3 up front. Thanks the 570GT's mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8, the super coupe produces 562 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. It even comes with a single-piece duffle bag as part of the Sports Series accessories range.
14.83 (Rear) / 5.3 (Front) Cubic Feet
With more than 20 cubic feet combined from its two cargo compartments, the GT is the most spacious McLaren in the history of the brand. Cargo numbers are not something the Woking-based automaker usually brags about but this time around it’s a different story. The practical supercar has a rear luggage bay accessed via a glass rear tailgate with soft-close function and optional power operation. In addition, there’s another 5.30 cu-ft storage at the front for a grand total of 20.12 cubic feet – the most you’ll find in a McLaren.
The spiritual successor to the 570GT is designed for long trips and offers features never seen in a McLaren before, such as a glass roof replacing the standard carbon fiber panel and a 12-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system with carbon fiber subwoofer and Kevlar midrange speakers. The automaker also adds its “most sophisticated” infotainment system to date which, in combination with the large boot and comfortable interior, should ensure the long-distance journeys are handled with ease.
28.25 (Seats Down) / 15.89 (Seats Up) Cubic Feet
The Ferrari GTC4Lusso and the less powerful T variant offer an impressive 15.89 cubic feet of cargo space in the large trunk, and lowering the rear seats takes the figure a spacious 28.25 cubic feet, making the Prancing Horse’s shooting brake the class leader in this list. If you’re serious about wanting a supercar with the utility to be a daily driver, then this is the one to pick.
Arriving in 2016 as a replacement to the similarly utilitarian FF, the GTC4Lusso has a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V12 making 680 hp and 515 lb-ft with all-wheel drive. Buyers can also opt for the rear-drive-only GTC4Lusso T with a 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 making 601 hp and 561 lb-ft.
