While it’s unlikely that you or I will be buying any of these wallet-emptying supercars any time soon, they’re still beautiful to look at and aspire to. Here’s a look at some of the most desirable and rarest production cars on the road today.
The limited production McLaren P1 is a gas/electric hybrid, but it’s no Prius. This high-tech beast can adapt its aerodynamics for individual tracks, and can achieve over 900 horsepower when both its 3.8L twin-turbo V8 engine and electric motors are working in concert.
Powered by a 610 horsepower V10, and shifted by a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, this amazingly lightweight sports car can hit 60mph in just 3.2 seconds, and tops out at an impressive 201mph. Time to trade in the Gallardo.
If James Bond were shopping for a new car today, it would be the Speedback GT. While it shares a platform with the Jaguar XKR, it looks more like a classic 1960s Aston Martin, but with modern tech under the hood and in its luxurious cabin. Ejector seat sold separately.
A gorgeous update to an already impressive car, Studiotorino’s coach-built edition of the Cayman S Type 981, the Moncenisio features sweeping new body panels and aerodynamic improvements, handcrafted leather sport seats, and the most incredible bespoke paint job.
