Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
This luxury Lambo is limited to production of 4,000 units. And if you’re one of the lucky few who owns this vehicle, then you know that you’ve arrived. The Aventador uses Lamborghini’s new 700 PS (510 kW; 690 bhp) 6.5 litre 60° V12 engine. It also reaches speeds of up to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds with a maximum speed of 349 km/h (217 mph). Luxury has a price and this one seems to be worth it, if the need for speed is one of your top requirements and you have $455,300 burning a hole in your pocket.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
If you have an extra $2.5 million to spend and want to relive childhood fantasies of being a Formula 1 driver, then this bad boy is for you. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport aka The World’s Fastest Production Car drives at a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph). It also has an 8.0-litre, quad-turbocharged, W16 cylinder engine and according to Volkswagen who revived the Bugatti brand to produce this car, the final production engine produces 1,001 metric horsepower (736 kW; 987 bhp) of motive power, and generates 1,500 newton metres (1,100 lbf·ft) of torque. There have only been 30 of these models produced, so if you’ve had the chance to drive one, even as an automotive technician, crown yourself royalty because you’ve had the chance to drive the king of cars.
When money is no object and your tastes run more sleek and stylish than sporty, then look no further than the McLaren F1, the sports car for drivers with as much taste as money. Though even if you had the million dollars that this model costs set aside, since only 106 models were produced, getting your hands on one will prove to be harder than coming up with the funds. With its low weight and high power that can reach a top speed of 240 mph (386 km/h), this car has a racing pedigree, but with the looks to match. Boasting butterfly doors that open upwards and not out, this is a road car that drives like a race car, but looks like pure luxury.
