Well, it’s not just one of these elements for sure, it’s all of them. So what is it? What is this car that’s dumfounding fast and outrageously expensive? Since it’s impossible to choose just one, here’s a listing of ten that meets the criteria. Go check ‘em out and pick one for yourself.
1. Koenigsegg CCXR
This supercar is a Swedish chef-d’oeuvre that has a starting price of a couple million bucks. It has searing acceleration of 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. With its charming chic, style and ultimate comfort design, the CCXR just might be the coolest car ever. This machine has a groovy ability to maintain stability and absorb ample shock because it’s equipped with fantastic grip and noteworthy chassis and suspension capacity.
This is a supercar you can theoretically drive like a 4×4! (But really, please don’t). If that’s not enough, the car also has an astounding 1018-horsepower and aluminum 4.8-litre, twin-pressurized flex-fuel, V8 engine. What did we say? Ruthless!
2. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse
Ready for the world’s fastest car? It’s the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Need we say more? The French car runs on 1200-horsepower and an 8-liter 16-cylinder engine and can hit 0-62 in just 2.6 seconds. It has a top speed 255.5 miles per hour that’s faster than any car ever made. This honey has all the car enthusiasts drooling. They can drool at you too is you got a pocket change of $2.5 million just sitting pretty in the bank.
3. W Motors Lykan Hypersport
If driving a car encrusted with glittering gems and littered with precious metals is your game, then you’ve found the fit for you. It also has an interactive system holographic display, so it’s a model of melded tech and luxury. W Motors will be building only seven of these princely cars so prepare your $3.4 million at the ready. Of course, it won’t be one of the coolest cars if it isn’t fast. The Lykan Hypersport is 245 mph and 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds fast. It owes its 750-horsepower and 3.7-litre, flat-six engine.
4. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Lamborghini’s Veneno Roadster originated from Italy. It has an intriguing lightweight design owing to its carbon fiber-reinforced polymer. Thus, its marvelous top speed of 221mph and acceleration of 0 to 62 mph in a mind-numbing 2.9 second timeframe. It also has a roaring 750-horsepower and 6.5-litre, 12-cylinder engine. Because Lamborghini has declared that they will be making a mere handful of these babies, only a glittering few will be able to boast owning one of them. Of course, they’ll be $4.5 million poorer but what’s that to someone who can afford it?
5. Maybach Exelero
Exelero is the most expensive vehicle by Maybach. The sleek and luxurious vehicle can be had for a cool $8 million. It’s the most expensive car out in the market and if that’s not cool, who knows what is? The car is outfitted with Fulda Tires to withstand its astounding maximum peak speed of 218 mph and acceleration of 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, all due to its incredible 700-horsepower and amazing 6-litre twin-turbo, V-12 engine. Driving this car is not just for its performance and speed alone but for the shrill thrill of getting your hands on one.
6. Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
For $2.2 million a pop, you’ll have a chance at owning the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. Of course, there’s a limit and there will only be 20 of you in the world. This is the lightest Lamborghini ever built with an extraordinary lightweight carbon fiber frame. It’s supercharged with a 570-horsepower, V10 engine with an incredible speed of 217 mph tops. It can hit 0-60 in a snappy 2.6 seconds.
7. Hennessey Venom GT
The Hennessey Venom GT is the love child of the wondrously-built Lotus Elise roadster with the impressive Exige coupe. Hennessey is carmaker based in Sealy, Texas but it made use of the two British cars as inspirations for the beautifully-crafted Venom GT. They utilized pieces and parts of the two cars, such as headlamps, doors, roof, grills, etc. The Texan Hennessy and UK’s Lotus are not affiliated in the least. January 2013 marks the date when the Hennessey Venom GT was paved its spot in the Guinness World Book of Records for hitting 186mph in a meager 13.63 seconds! Not surprising at it can reach 60mph in just 2.7 sec. There are only 29 of these darlings to get around at $1.2 million apiece.
8. Aston Martin One-77
To date, there are only 77 Aston Martin One-77s out there. The jaw-dropping design with its sleek curves, sharp angles and long, low body have millionaires parting with their $1.8 mil. A mere 3.7 seconds has this mean machine hitting 0 to 62. Not surprising with a 720-horsepower, v12 engine hidden under the hood. It’s an elegant, sexy conveyance that has all the car lover swooning with delight.
9. Pagani Huayra
As any car-lover worth his salt should know, most cars from Pagani are made-to-order, so these babies are highly-exclusive, you bet. It’s a small name brand that caters to a privileged few. And their Huayra is no exception with a 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharger, V12 engine that packs 720-horsepower. Its top speed is at 230 mph and it can go from 0-60 in a blazing 3.3 seconds tops. This exceptional car that spells speed and luxury can be had at a starting price of $1.5 million. Not bad, eh?
10. Koenigsegg Agera R
The Agera R is another masterpiece of the Swedish carmaker, Koenigsegg. With an ungodly 1140-horsepower and 5.0-litre, twin-turbo, V8 engine that can reach 0-60 in a brisk 2.8 seconds, it’s a beast of a car. And guess what, this car’s supreme top speed has not been put to test and is estimated at 273 mph, a figure that will leave the fastest car in the world—the Bugatti Veyron—in the dust. All these and more for a sum of $1.6 million bucks.
