10. Ascari KZ 1
Back in the early 2000s, the Ascari was on the verge of becoming the next big thing in the supercar segment. Unfortunately, that didn’t materialize, and all that is left of this interesting venture is the KZ 1 model. The KZ 1 entered the automobile market in 2004. It featured cool styling and solid construction with a carbon-fiber tub. They gave it an S62 V8 engine from the E39 BMW M5, which produced 400 HP. The KZ 1 was light and balanced, so it performed well. The acceleration time from 0 to 60 was possible in 4.0 seconds, while the top speed was 200 mph. The specifications and features in popular magazines added to the hype, too.
But when they revealed the pricing, the KZ 1 hit the wall. Ascari priced this car at a hefty $400,000, which was more than the comparable Ferrari or Porsche. The price tag sealed the destiny of the KZ 1. They stopped production a few years later after building only 10 models.
