Aaaah, expensive cars. It’s like watching your childhood toy grow up and increase in value for over 9000 percent. Since dreaming is best done big, apparently there are cars currently on the market worth more than what I’ll make if I keep working at my current salary for 202 years (the math is accurate and hurtful).
There’s no use in beating around the bush: if you’re reading this, odds are you can’t afford the cars coming up. And if you can afford them, I’m not even sure they’d be worth the money (I mean, let’s be honest, an Audi R8 is only 180k-ish, and that’s all you need in life). But let’s assume for a second that you’re rich as a [email protected]#!er and want to make sure you buy a car your friends can’t afford so you have exclusive bragging rights. Consider this shopping list:
10. McLaren P1 – 1.1 million USD
This little lady has a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8, combined with an onboard electric motor. Don’t worry though – it’s not a hybrid car. It’s more like a Formula 1 car with an energy recovery system, since you can only get 9 miles out of the battery. This ol’ gal has 903 horsepower, although I can confirm no actual horse souls were siphoned into the engine. Where the power comes from, only wizards know.
Top speed measured at 349 km/h (that’s 217 miles per hour for you overseas folk), and this one goes from 0 to 100 in less than 3 seconds. Which means I’d probably crash it in 4 seconds. This math is also accurate and hurtful.
9. Hennesey Venom GT – 1.1 million USD
You thought 903 horsepower from the McLaren was amazing, this beast packs a whopping 1500 horsepower. That’s three entire mid-sized horse farms siphoned into this metallic beast. Acceleration is also insane with an amazing 7 liter twin-turbo V8. Naught to 100 km/h at two mere seconds, and a top speed of 462 km/h or 287 mph.
This thing is essentially an airplane on wheels.
8. Zenvo ST1 – 1.2 million USD
Another 7 liter twin-turbo V8 here. For people not knowing what this means, by the way: it means you’ll pay a shitload of money on gas. Slightly slower than our previous entry, this little guy has a modest top speed of 375 km/h or 233 mph.
7. Ferrari LaFerrari – 1.3 million USD
Of course there had to be a Ferrari in here. According to the manufacturer, this steel horse has a top speed exceeding 350 km/h (217 mph) and hits 100 km/h in under three seconds. It reaches an impressive 300 km/h in 15 seconds. That’s some amazing acceleration, Jesus Christ.
6. Pagani Huayra – 1.3 million USD
Honestly, for the price, this one isn’t too impressive. Don’t be fooled guys: it has “only” 730 horsepower, “only” goes up to 371 km/h (that’s 231 mph) and “only” gets to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. Might as well take the bus. Or get the Ferrari. It’s the same price. I’m just saying.
5. Koeningsegg One:1 – 2.0 million USD
Now we’re talking. This one is based on the Koeningsegg Agera line, but they decided they wanted a 1:1 horsepower to weight ratio. This means this shy little girl can go from 0 to 400 km/h (yes, four hundred. That’s 249 mph by the way.) in only 20 seconds. Jesus. My car can’t even shift to third gear in that time. And that’s not even its max speed – the One:1 can go up to 453 km/h (281 mph) with nitrous. Without nitrous? Who knows. Why would you drive with no nitrous if you have 2 million to spend on a car. Be rational here.
4. Ferrari F60 America – 3.2 million USD
This version of America bombs countries with freedom. The car, however, goes from 0 to 100 in 3.1 seconds. Ferrari hasn’t released a top speed for this car, which makes me wonder why anyone would bother getting it at all. It’s safe to assume it can go faster than the La Ferrari due to the fact that it’s more than double the price. I’d honestly get the La Ferrari twice though. But don’t let me tell you what to do with your spare 3.2 million.
3. Bugatti Veyron – 3.4 million USD
Almost our horsepower king, this one has 1200 ponies waiting to please. The top speed is 409 km/h (254 mph) and it’s the best car you can get in pretty much every racing game where it’s in (hint: it’s also not bought with real money in those games, so it’s a lot cheaper!)
2. W Motors Lykan Hypersport – 3.4 million USD
This one is powered by a twin turbo flat-six 3.7 liter Porsche engine, so you know it’ll be good. It’s produces 740 horsepower and can go up to 385 km/h (239 mph) with an acceleration rate that’ll get it to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. It looks ugly as hell though.
1. Lamborghini Veneno – 4 million USD
Yup, this is the most expensive car you can buy (without going custom, of course). The car model is based on the Aventador and is only built in series of threes: one red, one white, one green. Why? Because it’s an Italian made car, dummie – gotta troop the colors for God sake! The car is made out of carbon fiber and has a 6.5 liter V12 engine with a maximum power of 750 horsepower. Now that’s a supercar.
