Everyone has a dream car. Some people want to own exotic cars like Lamborghini and Ferrari, while others want to drive around in something more modest.
It is hard to say which exotic car is better because they are all so different, and if you ask us, each one of them meets a specific need when it comes to how exotic it can be.
Now, does exotic mean luxurious? Or is it not only about money? Overall, you will notice that the ones included in this least aren’t precisely cheap or affordable, which is why we can say that, indeed, exotic kind of means luxury.
That being said, how are we going to classify the cars in this post? We will consider price and add a few that are breaking the market beyond the simple fact of how much they cost.
McLaren Speedtail – $2.2 million
McLaren F1’s unique seating arrangement was a key element of its success. It accommodated three people and placed the driver in the middle.
McLaren recreated this magic with the Speedtail, which achieved a top speed of 250 mph and featured their most potent hybrid engine to date.
The Speedtail has the glass canopy, seating position, and performance of a fighter jet, but with the performance of a hybrid powertrain.
The Speedtail’s power comes from a modified M840T 720S and a hybrid powertrain that generates 1,036 horsepower (773 kW; 1,050 PS).
According to the company, the Speedtail can reach 402.3 km/h (250 MPH) and accelerates from 0-299 km/h (0-1186 mph) in just 12.8 seconds.
The car can be charged while driving by a wireless charging pad that comes with it, trickle-charging the vehicle when it is not in use.
The Speedtail’s electrochromic glass darkens with the push of a button. This eliminates the need to use sun visors. It also has LED lights in its interior.
Speedtails do not have door mirrors. Instead, they use HD cameras mounted on front guards. When the ignition turns on, these pop out and then retract inside when the “Velocity Mode” is activated. The company claims that this is to reduce drag.
It has hydraulically activated active rear aerodynamic control surfaces made in flexible carbon fiber and is an integral part of the rear clamshell.
Aston Martin Vulcan – $2.3 Million
This Aston Martin is the result of over a century’s racing experience and engineering talent. It is no surprise that it is truly remarkable, and it’s as stunning to see as it is to drive.
The Vulcan has 800 horsepower thanks to its 7-liter V12 engine. This makes it ideal for track days, as all your competitors will notice Vulcan’s iconic spike-like taillights. It has a dry curb weight of 1,350 kg (2,976 lb).
The engine’s power delivery can be selected using a knob on the car. The first setting is 507 PS (373kW; 500hp), while the second is 684 PS (503kW; 675hp), and then the third is 831 PS (611kW; 820hp) of power output.
Through its front splitter and rear diffuser, the Vulcan produces GT3-car levels downforce. Aston Martin claims that the Vulcan will generate 324 kg (714 lb) at 100 mph (160 km/h), and 1,362 kg (3.003 lb), at its Vmax speed.
The car has a race-derived pushrod suspension with anti-dive geometry. It is complemented by Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars, front and rear driver-adjustable anti-lock braking, and variable traction control.
Aston Martin Valkyrie – $2.6 million
Aston Martin put all of their Formula One experience, engineering talent, and knowledge into the Valkyrie.
The result is a car that is truly powerful and looks great. The exterior design and stance of the Valkyrie, which Cosworth developed, make it look as if it could leap at any moment.
Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin collaborated to create the sports car. Adrian Newey was the Chief Technical Officer of Red Bull Racing and is the most successful F1 designer globally.
Its main competitor is the Mercedes-AMG One. The car had done its first lap of Silverstone before the 2019 Formula One British Grand Prix.
The car can accelerate up to 60 mph (97 km/h), while standing takes 2.6 seconds. Similar to Formula One cars and Porsche 918 Spyder, the exhausts are located at the top of the car near the engine.
Koenigsegg Jesko – $2.8 million
Anyone who has had the opportunity to open the “dihedral Synchro-helix” doors in a Koenigsegg will know that there is something powerful and expensive inside. The Jesko is a perfect example of this.
It seems like every year, the capabilities of Koenigsegg get more extraordinary and unimaginable. The Jesko may be one of the most powerful and exotic cars of the brand yet, and although it was announced in 2019 and finally released in 2020 in very limited quantities, it definitely is part of our list.
Each cylinder has four valves and a bore and stroke measuring 92 mm by 95.25mm (3.62 x 3.75 inches).
It has a power output of 955 kW (1.298 PS; 1,281 HP) on regular gasoline and four valves per cylinder with a bore and stroke of 92 mm x 95.25 mm and a compression ratio of 8.6:1.
Changes from Agera’s engine include using a new 180-degree flat-plane crankshaft that saves 5 kg (11 lb) and increases the redline from 8,250 rpm to 8,500 rpm.
The Jesko has a large carbon fiber front splitter and boomerang-shaped wing at its rear. It generates 800 kg (1.764 lb), 1,400 kg (3.086 lb), at 249 km/h (171 km/h), and 1,000 kg (2.205 lb), at 275 km/h (171 km/h).
That’s a lot of numbers, but more than required in order to understand how fast and exotic the car is. We’re even missing some details regarding the interior, exterior, wheels, and other features.
Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio – $3 Million
This 458-based Barchetta, a tribute to Sergio Pininfarina (design house Pininfarina), is a lovely tribute to Ferrari and Pininfarina.
Pininfarina’s distinctive sweeping lines transform the car into a futuristic, sculpted, and serene vehicle. Design elements echo the classic Ferrari Pininfarina Mythos concept from the 90s. This is a truly artistic statement that is well worth the price.
Ferrari built six units of the Sergio starting in 2015 and sold it to handpicked customers.
The production version has many modifications to the original concept, the most notable being a windshield and a removable hardtop.
The roll bar no longer includes the headrests. Additionally, the car shares many parts with its donor, including the interior, taillights, and side-view mirrors. The performance is the same as that of the donor car.
The car can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h), thanks to its unique aerodynamic design elements and weight reduction, in only 3.4 seconds.
Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport – $3.3 million
Bugatti describes it as “the purest Bugatti Chiron ever.” This claim is supported by substantial improvements to the engine, gearbox, and chassis.
For the casual observer, styling cues such as the number on the grille reflect Bugatti’s proud racing heritage. The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sports is the best choice if you are looking for a Bugatti that strives for the ultimate driving experience.
The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport is not a minor variation of the regular Chiron. It’s the raw-nerve version of Bugatti’s 1479-hp missile.
It is less isolated, direct, tighter wound, and more engaging than the Chiron Sport.
The redline for the tachometer is now 6,900 rpm. The transmission has been redesigned to improve the gear ratio spread, which benefits the power band by 80%. The Pur Sport weighs 50 kg (110 lb less than the standard Chiron) due to its lightweight 3D-printed titanium exhaust and fixed rear spoiler.
There is also extensive use of Alcantara and anodized aluminum and titanium in the interior. Special spokes, called “aero blades,” are used to channel turbulent air from the wheels to the rear diffuser.
Michelin developed the Michelin Sport Cup 2R tires, which increase lateral grip by 10%. To improve handling, the springs were stiffened by 65 percent at the front and 33% at the back.
The quad-turbocharged 8 Litre 64v quad-cam W16 petrol engine produces 1479 HP and accelerates the Chiron Pur Sport to HTML 62 mph (99.7 km/h) in just 2.4 seconds before reaching a maximum speed at 218 mph (350.8 km/h).
W Motors Lykan Hypersport – $3.4 million
The Lykan Hypersport was a well-known car that was skyscraper-hopping in Fast and Furious 7. It has doors that were simultaneously suicide and scissor doors, and holographic interior displays. It also has literal diamonds in its headlights.
The car production only reached seven units. The Lykan HyperSport’s prototype was revealed to the public at Qatar Motor Show, February 2013.
Lykan HyperSport’s 3.7-litre (3,746 cm) flat-six twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine is developed by Ruf Automobile.
It produces a maximum power output of 581.6kW (780 HP) at 7,100 RPM and 960 Nm (708 Lb-ft) at 4,000 RPM.
Lykan HyperSport came in either a 6-speed sequential automatic or a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK. The transmission is coupled with a limited-slip differential, which is mounted longitudinally at the car’s rear.
It features a MacPherson Strut suspension at the front and a multi-link suspension at the rear with horizontal coil-over shock absorbers. Both axles have anti-roll bars.
According to the set of gears, the manufacturer claims a maximum speed of 395 km/h (245 MPH). Although the car claims acceleration times of 2.8 seconds from 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) and 9.4 seconds from 0-200 km/h (0-125 mph), no independent tests have been done.
Pagani Huayra BC Roadster – $3.5 Million
It is supposed to be the last Pagani Huayra, and we have to say it meets a grand finale’s expectations.
There are only 40 examples, and they’re as beautiful as they are powerful. The car’s exterior features a bright silver, red, and black color scheme, tan leather seats, a distinct wood shift knob, and a removable carbon-fiber hardtop that weighs only 66 pounds more than its coupe counterpart.
The Huarya Roadster BC was introduced on June 2, 2019, via the CSR Racing 2 App. And it is a variant of the Huarya BC.
The new 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine is 800 PS (588kW; 789hp) and 1,001 Nm (738lbft). It shares many of the same aerodynamic components as the BC.
The roadster’s 7-speed Xtrac sequential gearbox, with a single clutch, is 35% lighter than a modern dual-clutch. Although the Huayra BC coupe is slightly heavier, it weighs at 1,217 kg (2.683 lb) but is only 30 kg (66lb) lighter than its Huayra counterpart.
To keep the weight down and ensure rigidity, the monocoque is made of carbon-titaniumHP62 material. Due to its large fixed rear wings and aerodynamic elements, the BC roadster can generate 500 kg (1.102 lb.) of downforce at 280 km/h (174 MPH).
The titanium exhaust includes flaps in its catalytic converters that divert exhaust gases above the underfloor elements. This is similar to Formula 1 cars’ blown diffuser.
Lamborghini Sian – $3.6 million
Lamborghini’s boldest and most innovative effort yet is the Sian. It features a hybrid system that utilizes lithium-ion supercapacitors to its advantage.
This hybrid doesn’t sacrifice weight for great power. Drivers can expect 819 horsepower and a time of 2.8 seconds to reach 60mph (96.5 km/h). The top speed is over 220 mph (354 km/h). The Sian’s design inspiration comes from the Countach and is instantly recognizable.
The V12 engine combined with electric boost creates a rare gem of engineering technology and engineering. Sian is a name that captures this car’s true personality, especially its speed.
Based on the Lamborghini Aventador, the Sian FKP 37 shares its engine with the SVJ variant of the Aventador, but an electric motor integrated into the gearbox adds another 25 kW to the power output.
The engine also features titanium intake valves and a reconfigured ECU. A new exhaust system increases the power output to 577kW.
The Sian produces 602 kW of power, making it the most powerful Lamborghini production. The engine is connected via a 7-speed automatic manual transmission, and the car uses an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system with a rear mechanical self-locking differential to improve handling.
Instead of traditional lithium-ion batteries, the supercapacitor unit stores the power for an electric motor. To improve weight distribution, the supercapacitor unit has been integrated into the gearbox with the electric motor.
Because they can provide three times as much power as a standard lithium-ion battery, supercapacitors were chosen. The car’s supercapacitors are an evolution of the Aventador’s starter motor.
They can store ten times more power than their predecessor. Regenerative braking helps to generate enough energy for supercapacitors to be recharged. The electric motor counters deceleration and boosts the driver at speeds of up to 130 km/h. However, the official speed is yet to be confirmed.
The production of the Sian FKP 37 coupe and roadster will be limited to 63 units each. All have been sold. Lamborghini’s Ad Personam Division will manufacture the Sian.
Lamborghini Veneno – $4.5 milion
It was full of innovation and a stirring design. The Lamborghini was certainly worth the hype and the money.
The first step was to squeeze 740 horsepower from the Aventador’s V12 and then create an entirely new Lamborghini body design optimized for cooling, aerodynamics, and other aspects. This is why the Veneno is a Lamborghini icon.
The engine is a development of the Aventador’s 6.5-litre V12 and generates a power output of 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) at 8,400 rpm and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm.
The power output was increased by increasing the air intake and modification of the exhaust system.
Lamborghini’s version of a road-worthy racing prototype is what the Veneno represents for the brand.
The car’s front is designed to maximize airflow and improve downforce. Redesigned rear arches and front direct air around the car were included to reduce excess lift and increase downforce. A smooth underbody assures uninterrupted airflow.
Three-way adjustable, the large rear wing made of carbon fiber is connected to the car via an LMP style central fin. The car’s wheels (20-inch frontal and 21-inch rear) are a turbine-like design. Direct air is used to cool the carbon-ceramic brake system.
The Veneno retains both the monocoque carbon fiber chassis with aluminum front and back subframes from the Aventador and the pushrod suspension system.
Interior is largely based on Aventador’s but incorporates “carbon skin” elements from the Aventador J. The Aventador’s 7-speed ISR manual transmission is still available and features a new “track” setting to improve performance on a racetrack
It has a top speed of 356 km/h (221 mph) and has a 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) acceleration time of 2.8 seconds.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – $4.8 million
“Trevita,” which means “three whites,” is the Swedish name for this car and goes amazingly with what describes the stunning and unique finish.
Koenigsegg has developed a unique method of manufacturing carbon fiber for the CCXR Trevita and was able to coat the fibers using it. Before further processing of the pre-production material, the fiber treatment is done in small batches.
Initially, there were three CCXR Trevitas planned. However, only two were ever produced due to the difficulty of making the diamond weave carbon fiber.
This makes it one of the rarest vehicles Koenigsegg has ever produced. Both cars had the Koenigsegg Shimmering diamond weave bodywork. Twin-deck carbon fiber rear wing, InconelExhaust system, carbon-ceramic brakes, and ABS airbags.
Trevita, which is also the most expensive sports car, costs approximately US$4.8 Million. One was owned and used by a boxer Floyd Mayweather until it was then sold.
But what about its performance? It can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds while reaching 200 km/h in 8.8 seconds. The final speed is estimated to go over 400 km/h and can be reached in 13 seconds.
Pagani Huayra Imola – $5.4 Million
The Huayra Imola, a car that is entirely dedicated to speed.
Pagani spent 11 pounds developing a special paint for the car’s finish. This helped reduce the car’s weight to just 2,747 pounds, making it as unique, powerful, and extraordinary as any other on the road.
The Imola is named after the Imola Circuit, where it underwent 16,000km of high-speed testing.
The Imola is street-legal’s most powerful variant of the Huayra. It uses the same Mercedes-AMG V12, tuned to 838 PS (827hp; 616kW) and 1,100Nm (811lbft), where it underwent 16,000km of high-speed testing.
A revised front clip is one of the many changes made to the body. A one-piece design replaces the inverted V that is normally found on the Huayra.
New scoops have been added to the V creases on the hood. Side features more air inlets and aggressive-looking side skirts. A different spoiler is found in the rear
The suspension is another highlight of Huayra Imola. The suspension geometry was modified by engineers to improve stability under acceleration and braking. They also installed active dampers as well as a front-lifting system.
Additional upgrades include an optimized Brembo package and a Pirelli Trofeo R tire.
Only five examples of the Pagani Huayra Imola are being built, and they have all been sold.
Bugatti Divo – $5.9 million
The Divo (as if Bugatti’s cars weren’t serious enough) is as serious as any other Bugatti car.
Bugattis are well-known for their ability to reach amazing speeds in straight lines, but the Divo is just as fast.
Bugatti Divo is also designed to dominate the corners. It does this by having a more elongate, aerodynamic body that increases downforce and 1.6 Gs of acceleration laterally. We didn’t know that Bugatti would be at the forefront in performance.
This car is inspired by the Bugatti Type57SC Atlantic and Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concepts in terms of design. It has track performance at its core.
A redesigned exhaust system is included with quad exhaust pipes, a 1.8-meter fixed rear wing (233% wider than the retractable Chiron wing), and a NACA conduit on the roof.
This channels air to the rear on a central fin and then to the rear on the rear wings for increased downforce. There are also new front chin spoilers, refined side skirts, and larger headlamps and tail lights. The bonnet vent allows for better radiator cooling.
The interior in the Divo is relatively similar to the more luxurious Chiron but has Alcantara upholstery and carbon fiber trim in order to save weight.
The manufacturer says the car can go around the Nardo track in 8.0 seconds faster than the Chiron. It also generates 456 kg (1.005 lb) of downforce at top speed and 90 kg (198 kg) more than the Chiron. This is due to extra drag from aerodynamic elements as well as excessive pressure on the tires due to a lower ride height.
The power output of the car is identical to that of the Chiron with 1,103kW (1,500 PS; 1,479 HP) at 6,700rpm and 1,600Nm (1,180lbft), respectively, at 2,000-6,000 rpm.
The speed of the Divo is also unchanged from that of the Chiron, 100 km/h at 2.4 seconds. However, the Divo has a greater lateral acceleration
Only 40 Divos will be produced. The car will be built at the Bugatti factory alongside the Chiron.
Bugatti Centodieci – $9 million
The Bugatti Centodieci pays homage to a classic modern car: the EB110. Bugatti’s iconic EB110, which can travel 200+ mph, is combined with all the work that Bugatti has done today, making it a rare and expensive car leading to the Centodieci we’re able to see.
But nostalgia is not the only reason Centodieci is so amazing. It is a significant improvement on the Chiron that sheds nearly 45 pounds and adds downforce.
It features five round intakes that resemble a diamond and a wedge-shaped design language.
The EB110 is further reflected in the small horseshoe radiator grille below the headlamps. To create an aggressive appearance, narrow headlights have LED daytime running function and are fitted with sharp grooves.
Eight tail lights are attached to the rear, along with quad black exhaust pipes. They are located on either side of large diffusers.
The design team completed the Centodieci design in just six months, thanks to computer-assisted 3D design and Virtual Reality technology.
The Centodieci can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) in 2.4 seconds, 0-200 km/h (122.4 mph) in 6.1 seconds, and 0-300km/h (186 mph), in just 13.1 seconds. It has a top speed of electronically limited to 380 km/h (248 mph).
Only 10 Centodieci units will be made. The Centodieci are hand-built at Bugatti’s Molsheim plant and delivered to customers this year (2021).
Rolls-Royce Sweptail – $13 million
The Sweptail is named after its distinctive feature: the tapered back end. It evokes a yacht. The Sweptail’s glass roof extends from front and back, and nearly every interior surface is covered in wood and leather.
At the time of its release in May 2017 at the yearly Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event, it was the most expensive new automobile in the world, costing around $12.8 million.
The Sweptail is based upon the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe. It was built over four years. The Sweptail was ordered bespoke in 2013 by a super-yacht/aviation specialist with a unique idea.
Giles Taylor (director of design at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars) described the Sweptail as “the automotive equivalent in Haute couture.”
In 2019, the Sweptail was overtaken as the most expensive new car by the Bugatti La Voiture Noire, which sold for $18.7 million.
Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta – $17.5 million
We know the Pagani Zonda to be a historic and epic supercar. Its distinctive look and exceptional performance make it a classic and legend.
A car such as the HP Barchetta is the best way to showcase it. The HP Barchetta is even more eye-catching than the Zonda. It has rear wheels partially covered in carbon fiber panels and a body design that is almost completely transparent.
The Zonda HP Barchetta was unveiled at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as a present to the company’s founder, Horacio Pagani.
It has unique exterior design cues, which makes it different from other Zondas produced. The most distinguishable features are the Barchetta body style and rear wheel covers inspired by group C race cars, making it the first Pagani to be the first Pagani ever to use this styling.
Rear spoiler, air intakes, and rear lights are also taken from the 760 Series cars. Power comes courtesy of the 7.3 L (445 cu in) Mercedes-Benz V12 engine rated at 800 PS (588 kW; 789 hp) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque, making it the most powerful road-legal Zonda ever produced.
The Huayra BC inspired its suspension and seats, while the power output is identical to the BC. However, the HP Barchetta’s engine is naturally aspirated. The inlays on the wheels are also different, with the wheels on the left sporting gold inlays and the wheels on the right sporting blue.
Only three units were produced, with one remaining for Horacio Pavani’s personal collection. The Zonda HP Barchetta marks the end of the Zonda production run. Customers can still order Zondas in the 760 series and other special edition Zondas upon request.
Bugatti La Voiture Noire – $18.7 million
This stunning, unique Bugatti was inspired by the Type 57 Atlantic, Bugatti’s early history.
Bugatti wanted to recreate the elegance and mysticism that the Atlantic offered and the legend of the perfect automobile.
La Voiture Noire has unique features, including six tailpipes and an inverted seam running through the middle.
The car has a hand-built body made from carbon fiber designed by Bugatti designer Etienne Salome, which has an elongated nose (similar to that on the Divo) and an elongated rear section. The car also features unique wing mirrors and an LED taillight strip.
The Type 57 SC’s dorsal fin is recalled by a trim piece that runs from the front to the rear spoiler. The car has a floating windscreen and masked A-pillars. Large design similarities exist between the La Voiture Noire and the Bugatti Rembrandt.
La Voiture Noire will use the same quad-turbocharged W16 engine of the Chiron, 8.0-litres in displacement. However, the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and all-wheel-drive system have been extensively revised to provide a more comfortable driving experience.
Softened dampers and a revised chassis enhance the factor. Six exhaust pipes are featured on the car, a nod to the original design.
Although performance figures are not known, the company claims that the car will likely have lower acceleration and top speed than the Chiron because of its Grand Touring nature.
Do You Like What You See?
Personally, we love cards, and being able to live in a world where we can at least see them is a blessing.
However, we admit that buying any of them anytime soon is quite off-limits for the next few months or even years.
Keep in mind we didn’t include some models available that could be either more expensive, luxurious, or advanced than the previous ones. Why? Because many of them come with limits and no specifications are provided in detail to know if they truly compete with the ones we have here.
What we can tell you to conclude is: if you ever buy one of those, make sure it isn’t the latter even if you got the money. Let’s face it, it looks awesome, but we could buy over 2 of the less expensive ones.
