10. McLaren P1
Coming in at #10 is the McLaren P1. This vehicle goes from 0 to 60 in a quick 2.6 seconds and wows enthusiasts with its sleek body lines and streamlined exterior. The hood is designed for maximum speed and the custom grille adds to its interesting vibe. The headlights were made for track days and compliment the vehicle’s sexy appearance. If spectators wait around and appreciate the P1 for a mere four seconds, they can watch the P1 hit 200.
The P1 features a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 plus electric motor. It has 904 horsepower and 723 pound-feet of torque, which gets it started instantly. Production of the P1 ended in December of 2015 after 381 units were created and the MSRP for it is around $1.15 Million US Dollars. It is a highly desired car due to its stopped production, so it’s certainly one to pay attention to if you’re lucky enough to spot one.
Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce
The Lamborghini Aventador goes from 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds. It has an MSRP of $497,000 and is available in 34 different color options. Its geometric body lines are aggressive and strong, but under the hood is where it really impresses. Lamborghini famously names it vehicles in Greek Mythology inspired titles. Though the Aventador is not a known name, it resembles the characteristics of the strong, historical Minotaur.
The engine is a beastly 6.5-liter, dual overhead cam 48-valve V12. It packs 740 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque and is the most iconic supercar on the list with its all-wheel-drive grip. It’s impressive at a stand-still, but even more bold as it sprints into the distance.
