Instagram and supercars to go together like peanut butter and jelly. In a format designed to accentuate intriguing images, the top-rung exotics with their exciting aerodynamics are guaranteed to show up for many in-your-face moments.
But which of today’s greatest and most-evocative supercars are transmitted the most on Instagram? The number crunchers at comparethemarket.com, a car-insurance marketplace, used Instagram data to create a list of the most popular models seen on the social-media platform as of April 2020.
“We took a count of the 2 most popular hashtags associated with each car,” the company said in releasing the findings. “By finding a total per car, we were able to find the most popular cars on the list.”
The highest count for individual cars ranged into the multi-millions, the team found, with an international cadre of cars from Italy, France, England, Germany and Japan topping the list.
The top 10 supercars with the highest number of Instagram hashtags, according to the data, are:
