Another car that has the distinction of being owned by Jay Leno is also one of the most expensive cars in the world. Everything about the McLaren F1 was designed to achieve a serious amount of speed. The interior of this car is about as bare-bones as you can get and there is good reason for that (via Motor Trend).
Take this car out on the track, and you will experience something unlike anything else on the road. The unique look and feel of the car completely separate it from all other supercars in the segment, hence its astronomical price tag.
The Ruf CTR3 is one of the most notable Porsche supercars in the world. It is not only an elite track car but also a street-legal vehicle. A top speed of 233 MPH is achievable and the car has maintained multiple land speed records since its release (via Motor Trend).
Porsche-designed supercars are some of the best in the world. The sheer speed that the RUF can produce separates it from a lot of cars that have used the Porsche platform in the past.
The Huayra BC Pacchetto Tempesta can achieve a top speed of 238 MPH. By today’s standards, that’s one of the most powerful sports cars that has ever hit the road. There aren’t many cars like this one, and there is good reason for that.
31: Ultima Evolution (1020 PS) – 240 MPH – $100,000
If you’ve never heard of the Ultima Evolution, you haven’t seen a true supercar before. This is one of the land speed record holders in the world, and the Evolution was designed for serious performance. Achieving a top speed of 240 MPH, the Ultima Evolution is a notable sports car that doesn’t look like anything else on the road (via Motor Trend).
Ultima is not the most common supercar builder in the world, which is why you might not have seen this car. The beautifully sculpted lines and the performance of this car are impressive.
The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is one of the most well-known supercars on the list, and part of the reason for that is because Jay Leno owns one. The Saleen brand is often equated with the Ford Mustang, but there have been other cars that bore a Saleen badge. The S7 twin-turbo is a car that was designed completely in-house (via Motor Trend).
The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is one of the most impressive sports cars ever released. The unique look and feel of the car broke almost every speed barrier there is. There will always be a Saleen equated with high performance and the S7 Twin Turbo is by far the most impressive.
29: W Motors Lykan Hypersport – 245 MPH – $3,690,000
The Lykan Hypersport is more well-known than other cars on this list because it was featured in the ‘Fast & Furious’ movie franchise. With a top speed of 245 MPH, there aren’t many cars that can match it in terms of performance. The W Motors company has built a few well-known supercars over the past decade (via Motor Trend).
The Lykan Hypersport is probably one of the most underrated sports cars of all time. There aren’t many sports cars that can pull off this type of look and performance in the world, and the Hypersport is one of them.
This is not a car you’ll see at a weekend car show. Instead, this is one of the most elite vehicles in the world with the top speed to match. The distinct curves on this car are in line with other supercar models from Lamborghini and other exotic supercar builders.
Lotus is a well-known performance car builder and the company is also known for stellar suspension designs. But did you know that the company has also dabbled in the supercar arena? The Sirius isn’t a car named after the satellite radio company but a car that delivers a massive punch on the track (via Motor Trend).
The Sirius is a project that the company set out to build a while ago. Lotus is not an automotive brand designed for serious speed but instead focuses on the handling aspect of driving. Yet the Sirius was among the fastest in the world. It handles well and performs like a beast on the track.
What exactly makes the Regera special besides its extremely high price tag? A top speed of 249 MPH is one of the things that will blow you out of your socks. Another sports car has not rivaled the Regera in terms of the unique design (via Motor Trend).
Now, of course, we also have the unique styling of the car, which is beautiful. There aren’t many of these cars that look this good, but the Regera does both. When it comes to a car that shatters both the speed barrier and the style barrier, the Regera does both and does them well. You won’t find another exotic supercar that looks or drives like the Regera does.
The Gamera is another well-to-do sports car designed by the historic automaker. The performance of this car is equally impressive, and the $500,000 price tag is just as expensive. Once again, Koenigsegg has managed to craft a supercar unmatched in performance and design (via Motor Trend).
The Gamera is not as well known as many other exotic cars on this list, but it will still blaze a trail on the racetrack. This is one of the fastest cars in the world. With the low-slung look of the car and the amazingly beautiful exterior, there aren’t many sports cars that can compete with this one.
The Koenigsegg brand is well known in the supercar world and the CCXR is one of the highest-performance cars out there. With a blistering top speed of 249 MPH, the CCXR is above average compared to other sports cars (via Motor Trend).
The CCXR is a supercar owned by many celebrities. Why not? The design of the car is beautiful and its performance is truly breathtaking. From a sheer performance standpoint, the CCXR is above all one of the most influential supercars on the road. You won’t find a more important car built from the ground up for performance.
The Larea GT1 S12 is a fast car that takes a lot of design cues from the other popular supercars in the segment. Fahlke is among one of the most revered sports car designers in the world, and with good reason (via Motor Trend).
The unique look and feel of the Larea GT1 S12 is only half of the battle. The top speed of the car is among the fastest in the world, and the high price tag matches that. Taking one look at the design of this car, you’ll immediately see that it is quite special even compared to other exotic supercars on the market.
Taking a cue from many other supercar builders, Aspark created a battery-powered supercar as well. The Aspark Owl will have a top speed of 249 MPH and a battery-powered design. Aspark is still a fairly new contender in the world of supercars (via Motor Trend).
As with most of these concept sports cars, the Aspark Owl is a very limited production project. But the technology that has gone into this one is exceptional. When it comes to beautiful design, the Aspark Owl is one of the most unique sports cars released.
The Tesla Roadster has always been an impressive car. This was the first car to have the Tesla badging and managed to become a surprise hit for the new company. The next generation of the roadster will be even faster and more beautiful than ever before (via Motor Trend).
The Tesla Roadster has beautiful styling from top to bottom and the performance is expected to break records. Time will tell how the next generation of the Tesla Roadster does, but it will almost surely be a massive success for the company.
The Speedtail is one of the fastest cars in the world. But that shouldn’t surprise, considering how well-known McLaren is in the performance world. The Speedtail is a unique performance car that combines some of the most beautiful curves and design elements ever seen in a sports car (via Motor Trend).
When you think of F1 racing, McLaren is one of the first brands to come up. The Speedtail takes inspiration from the F1 race cars and puts it into a refined package. There are aspects of this car that are unlike anything else released in the exotic supercar segment.
The Valkyrie is an expensive supercar that can achieve a top speed of 250 MPH. There aren’t many exotic cars that can match this top speed. Aston Martin has become a sort of afterthought in the exotic car world in recent years (via Throttle Bias).
The Valkyrie doesn’t look like anything else on the market, and the car was designed specifically to be like that. Aston Martin wanted something unique that would get the automotive world talking. The Aston Martin Valkyrie is not your run-of-the-mill exotic car. This supercar is designed to break all kinds of speed barriers.
Ask any Porsche lover what a true supercar should be like and they’ll inevitably point toward the Dauer Porsche 962 LeMans. This is a beautiful supercar based on the Porsche 962 platform. There are many cars in the same league as the 962 LeMans, but none are as beautiful (via Throttle Bias).
The Dauer Porsche 962 is a beautiful example of what a supercar can be. The unique design and stellar platform make this a high-performance toy for drivers to enjoy. A car like this is not the average type of sports car you’ll see on the highway. The Dauer is one of the rarest Porsche models ever produced.
17: Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport – 254 MPH – $2,250,000.00
The Veyron is a world-famous automotive brand at this point, so it’s no surprise that the Veyron Grand Sport gets so much attention. Not only is the sports car beautiful but it also has a top speed of 254 MPH. The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport is by far one of the most notorious sports cars in the world because of its beautiful styling (via Throttle Bias).
There is no denying that you will break land speed records getting behind the wheel of this car. But production numbers are extremely limited, so not everyone can get one. The performance of the Veyron is the type of speed that throws you back into your seat.
Aerodynamics is probably the most important part of what makes a supercar go fast. This is why the SSC Ultimate Aero took that concept to the next level. The car is beyond aerodynamic, and there is a method to the madness. The reason behind the Ultimate Aero is to showcase the future of electric performance cars (via Throttle Bias).
There is also an Ultimate Aero EV version that promises to have the same blisteringly fast performance. The EV will utilize a powerful battery system, and time will tell how effective the car will be. The truest driving enthusiasts are still reluctant to embrace EVs as a performance vehicle, but the Ultimate Aero looks to change that narrative.
How do you make an already great sports car even more relevant? You design a version that can be driven on the streets. The 9ff GT9-R is the perfect toy for high-speed and track running. But there is more to this car than just a blisteringly fast motor and a low-to-the-ground design (via Throttle Bias).
What makes this car special besides the top speed is the high level of attention to detail. Every inch of this car has a purpose and it’s been built to achieve that. The ordinary Porsche vehicles are built for speed, but this one takes everything you already know about Porsche a step further.
How do you make the Porsche GT even better? By building the 9ff GT9. This is not a production model and was purpose-built for racing. But for the Porsche aficionados out there, the high price tag and elite top speed make it appealing. The 9ff GT9 is the type of car you’d expect a real Porsche aficionado to be driving (via Throttle Bias).
The 9ff GT9 is not a car that should be overlooked, it has all the attributes of the other supercars on this list. The benefit of this car is that it was purpose-built for the race track. When it comes to beauty and brawn, this car has both in abundance.
The Nevera has one of the fastest top speeds in the world. There is nothing about this car that is slow and there is nothing about it that’s cheap. The Nevera is a piece of automotive perfection hand-built for speed (via Throttle Bias).
The Nevera is perhaps one of the most beautiful exotic cars ever built. Its small production run and beautiful exterior make this car stand out. Very few cars can pull off the unique combination of beauty and substance like the Nevera does so well.
12: Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport – 267 MPH – $2,400,000.00
Bugatti is a brand that never ceases to amaze. Every car that comes out of a Bugatti factory is hand-built and designed to achieve serious speed. The Veyron 16.4 is a groundbreaking car that shatters every speed record around the world (via Throttle Bias).
The styling is the most iconic that Bugatti has ever released, making the Veyron popular with celebrities. The car still manages to be a talking point to this day. Bugatti specifically designed the car to attract attention for the company, which had recently returned to business after going under in the 1990s.
Hennessey is a well-known performance brand in the automotive industry, and they create all kinds of unique speed machines. The Venom GT is one of their prized creations. With a blisteringly fast 270 MPH, this car has broken all kinds of land speed records. The styling of the Venom GT is unlike anything else on the road (via Throttle Bias).
You’d be hard-pressed to find a car that will perform like the Hennessey Venom GT. From the styling to the top speed, this is a car that breaks almost every rule. The unique design of the car only adds to the experience when you get behind the wheel. When you hear the name Venom, you automatically think of a menacing presence, and that’s what this car sets out to accomplish.
Building on the popularity of the Agera R, the RS added to Koenigegg’s notoriously fast lineup. Also boasting a top speed of 277 MPH, this is a downright scary fast ride. The look of the Agera RS is enough to scare just about any competitor, but it’s what’s under the hood that does real damage on the track (via Throttle Bias).
If the speed isn’t enough to make your heart skip a beat, the high price tag will. This is an expensive exotic car, and the price is far more than the average consumer can afford. The carbon-fiber body on this car is excellent, which is one of the pinnacle points in the awe-inspiring design of the car.
The Koenigsegg Agera R is a more common supercar but not in the sense that it’s affordable. This is an older supercar that many celebrities own including Jay Leno. That doesn’t mean the Agera R is slow by any means. The top speed of this is still 277 MPH, much faster than anything else on the market (via Throttle Bias).
The Agera R is one of the most beautiful supercars in the world. The design is timeless, and the performance will leave you breathless on the track. This is a true track car in every sense of the word, which is what the intended purpose was. The Agera R has a timeless design and performance that will throw you back into your seat.
Understanding the difference between a sports car and an exotic car is essential when looking at the Czinger 21c. The 21c is a piece of automotive history designed to break speed records. There is no other car like it in the world, and rightly so. You’d be hard-pressed to find this kind of performance anywhere else (via Throttle Bias).
The Czinger 21c has a top speed of 281 MPH, which is quite impressive. But it’s the rest of the car that is a testament to how far automotive design has come. The car is beautiful from top to bottom, and not the average sports car by any means. Only the world’s most elite drivers can afford one.
You have to be in a different income bracket to afford the SSC Tuatara. This is a supercar that needs no introduction. The unique styling and blisteringly fast performance separate this car from any other production vehicle (via Throttle Bias).
This car is cripplingly fast and the styling is hand-built. Every inch of the SSC is designed to be a grown man’s toy. The performance of the car is jaw-dropping, the interior is a no-frills design, and there is almost no cargo room. When it comes to a sports car that you can take on a weekend road trip, this isn’t going to be it.
For the average consumer, Koenigsegg is not a brand that they will ever come into contact with. This is an elite automaker that builds some of the fastest cars in the world. So it only makes sense that the Jesko is one of the fastest cars in the world. With a blistering top speed of 300 MPH, this car breaks records and hearts simultaneously (via Throttle Bias).
The Jesko is not a car that should be overlooked because it provides some of the best performance in the segment. The beautiful styling looks as though it has been hand sculpted. The designers wanted it to get as little ground clearance as possible, and that is the case when you see the car in person.
5: Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300 – 304 MPH – $3,900,000
One of the ways the Bugatti brand continues to grow is the attention-grabbing cars they design. No matter what facet of popular media you look at, you will see a Bugatti model at some point in time. The brand does this on purpose as these cars aren’t average exotic sports cars. A Bugatti is a purpose-built machine, and the Chiron Super Sport 300 builds on that stellar reputation (via Throttle Bias).
The Bolide is not a product meant for retail consumers. Instead, the company positioned the Bolide with a different focus, and that was to be a track day car. The Bolide is different from other Bugatti models released to the market. From a design standpoint, this is every bit the supercar you’d expect from an elite automaker (via Throttle Bias).
The Bolide is not a vehicle you often hear a lot about, but you will never ride in something else that performs like it. Every inch of this car is a purpose-built machine, and you can bet that only the top percent of the world will ever drive it. The sheer performance of this car is frightening and jaw-dropping at the same time.
The Venom F5 is one of the most well-known supercars in the world, and part of that fame is because Jay Leno has driven it. The Venom F5 is supposed to be 10 times more advanced than any other supercar on the road. The design is extremely low to the ground and the 6.6-liter Twin-Turbo V8 is an insane power plant (via Throttle Bias).
It’s safe to say that with 1817 BHP under the hood, the Hennessey Venom F5 is a breathtakingly fast supercar. The design of the Venom will invoke all types of emotions when you see it. But it’s getting behind the wheel of the Venom, that’s the real surprise. The car handles and drives so much better than anything else on the market.
There are very few brand names in the automotive industry like Koenigsegg. The company is known for creating out of this world sports cars. The beautiful styling of the car is only the first thing you notice about it. The 1280 BHP under the hood gives the Jesko Absolut some serious punch on the race track (via Throttle Bias).
Obviously, the owners of these cars don’t generally race them; instead, this is sort of an ego trip. The Jesko Absolut is still a supercar that should not be understated. The beautiful design of the car is by far one of the best on the road and you can’t beat its performance either.
Maybe you’ve never heard of the Devel Sixteen, but this is one of the fastest supercars in the world. What the Devel Sixteen does right is what many supercars have been trying to do for decades. There is massive power under the hood of this car. It has 2000 horsepower unlike anything else on the market (via Throttle Bias).
If you’ve never driven a supercar, there is no way to comprehend how fast 2000 horsepower is. This is not a street-legal car in any sense of the word, and you can tell the owner has a lot of fun with it. Devel Motors is not a well-known company but this car can hit speeds that almost every other supercar simply can’t.
