There are plenty of stylish speed demons for sale, but we’ve put together a list of the sleekest looking cars that happen to have hefty price tags as well. Some of these cars belong on the racetrack rather than the open road, but they’d all be fun to drive. Take a look at these drool-worthy cars and the bank account needed to own one.
Topping our charts as the most expensive car is the MaybachExelero. Forget the seat belt, the Exelero comes with a racing harness. The car, which was designed by German students, can hit speeds of 230+ mph. You might have sticker shock over this one; it’s priced at 8 million dollars. According to AutoEvolution, the rap star Birdman recently bought one and tweeted about how much he liked it.
Fast and futuristic, the Lamborghini Veneno won’t disappoint in speed or looks. The Veneno(Spanish for “poison”) lives up to the Lamborghini name. It’ll go 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds and tops out at speeds near 220 mph. The V12 engine churns out 750 horsepower. Even if you’ve got the 4 million to buy it, you can’t. There were only three made and they’ve already been scooped up.
W Motors LykanHypersport
With diamond-encrusted interior, the LykanHypersport is the ultimate luxury vehicle. Aside from its fancy interior, which is also laced with gold and platinum, the Lykan holds two turbo Porsche engines that propel the sleek car to speeds around 245mph. Only seven of these were commissioned to the tune of $3.4 million. To sweeten the deal, each owner gets a Cyrus Klepcys watch with the car. You’d need a monthly car payment calculator to figure out those payments.
You can drop the top on this expensive beauty. The Maybach Landaulet has a convertible roof in the back and a partition separating the passenger from the driver. In other words, you’d probably want to ride rather drive this limousine-like vehicle. Plus, all the amenities are in the back, like a mini fridge and hand painted champagne flutes. As you can imagine, the Kelly Blue Book value is off the charts, coming in at $1.3 million.
This hot little number holds the record for the fastest in the world, registering a speed of 231 mph. It rolled off the line in the 90s, but has maintained its popularity through the years. Just 106 were made. In this sleek car, there’s just one seat up front. The driver sits in the center, which offers better visibility and more control. If you’re looking to add it to your collection, you’ll need just under a million bucks. The price tag on the McLaren F1 is $970,000.
