Celebrities such as Jay Leno, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Jerry Seinfeld proudly display their supercars as a symbol of prestige, class, and affluence. This high demand is the reason why car manufacturers invest millions in crafting luxurious designs that stand out and appeal to wealthier customers. They also equip these cars with powerful engines for impressive speed and integrate the latest high-tech features to make these rides worthwhile.

The Bugatti Veyron once held the record for the fastest street-legal production car worldwide, with a top speed of over 267 mph. You can’t expect less from a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine producing a staggering 1,001 HP. However, it’s not just about speed; its interior is a masterpiece of the finest leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber. Of course, the Bugatti Veyron is not for everyone, but it is worth every penny for those who can afford its starting price of over $1.5 million.

Ferrari LaFerrari


The carmaker nicknamed this model “The Ferrari” because they designed it to push the boundaries of car engineering and design. Unlike many other underpowered hybrids, this supercar combines a powerful 6.3-liter V12 gasoline engine with an electric motor for a mind-blowing 950 HP. Don’t be surprised! It uses the HY-KERS hybrid system from Formula 1, which provides instant bursts of power while saving more fuel than traditional Ferraris.

Since McLaren has a rich history in racing, they used lightweight carbon fiber and KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) to increase power output and speed. The P1 has a plug-in hybrid with a 3.8L twin-turbo V8 engine and an electric motor to crank out a staggering 903 HP. With only 375 units produced, this British machine is a rare collector’s item and an investment for serious car enthusiasts or collectors.

Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini is known for its impressive designs, and the Aventador doesn’t disappoint. It has a sleek, aerodynamic exterior with scissor doors that carry on its rich heritage of powerful and outrageous Italian supercars. To complement its style, the Aventador has a 730 HP naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine with a top speed exceeding 217 mph.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS


This German marvel can effortlessly double as a luxurious supercar and a champion on the racetrack. The 911 GT2 RS has a 700 HP twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engine and a massive rear wing that generates enough downforce and keeps it glued to the track when turning corners at high speed. While you’ll have to shell out well over $250,000 to buy this machine, it’s a worthy investment for celebrities, serious driving enthusiasts, and auto collectors.

Audi R8

The Audi R8 V10 has a low profile, sharp lines, and LED lighting that announces its presence. Unlike other high-maintenance supercars, this German machine can handle everyday use because its mid-mounted V10 engine complements the comfortable interior and decent luggage space. Car enthusiasts love this model because its all-wheel-drive system gives better traction and control in all weather conditions. Moreover, buyers can choose from various trims, including the convertible.

Koenigsegg Jesko


The $3 million car has a monstrous twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 engine with two power outputs depending on fuel. Pump gas produces a staggering 1,280 HP, while E85 biofuel unleashes a mind-blowing 1,600 HP. As if that isn’t enough, the designers shed enough weight for a better power-to-weight ratio, faster acceleration, and sharper handling.

Mercedes-Benz AMG One

Like a few other vehicles on this list, the AMG One used Formula 1 technology to build a street-legal car with a hybrid powertrain. This feature means it had a powerful 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine combined with four electric motors to produce over 1,000 HP. With only 275 units produced at $2.7 million each, the AMG One is an instant collector’s item, as having one means you’re in an elite club of AMG One owners.

Pagani Huayra


Skilled artisans at Pagani meticulously handcraft every Huayra. Before arriving at the final look, they obsess over every detail, including the carbon fiber monocoque chassis and the luxurious leather interior. The Huayra looks different from other supercars because of its biomimetic approach inspired by natural aerodynamic forms. However, having a 700 HP Mercedes-AMG-sourced twin-turbo V12 engine proves that it’s more than aesthetics.

Ford GT

Although the Ford GT isn’t among the top three fastest cars on the list, this supercar is worth every dollar for several reasons. The GT carries the weight of history since Ford decided to build a modern reincarnation of the legendary Ford GT40 that dominated Le Mans in the 1960s. They ensured every feature reminded buyers of their racing heritage but added enough cargo space and a comfortable cabin that doesn’t limit it to the track. This American muscle has a powerful twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine pumping over 600 HP.

Aston Martin Valkyrie

When a performance enthusiast like Red Bull collaborates with renowned hypercar makers like Aston Martin, you get a limited edition Aston Martin Valkyrie. With help from the world’s most successful F1 designer and a unique powertrain developed with Cosworth, they successfully created a track and road monster. When its naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine pairs with the electric motor for extra boost, you’ll get a staggering 1,139 HP as the total output.

Ferrari 488 Pista


The 488 Pista lives up to its name, “pista,” meaning “track” in Italian. It has a monstrous twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8 engine tuned to produce 720 HP (more than the standard 488 GTB). This model has several aerodynamic upgrades from Ferrari’s successful Challenge and GTE race cars. You’d find a new front splitter, dive planes, and a more aggressive rear wing. Like a proper race car, the 488 Pista is lightweight as Ferrari decided to shed more pounds for better handling and faster lap times.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

This Swedish marvel has a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 engine with two power output options. It pumps out 1,176 horsepower on regular pump gas and a mind-blowing 1,360 HP with an optional upgrade. Since its designers chose carbon fiber and other high-tech, lightweight materials, the Agera RS is one of the fastest production cars ever made. Only a few of these vehicles are around, so their initial $2.5 million price tag would keep increasing if maintained well.

Porsche 918 Spyder

When Porsche released the 918 Spyder in C, it immediately secured a special place in the world of supercars as a technological wonder. It moved 0-60 mph within 2.6 seconds thanks to a naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V8 engine combined with two electric motors. Buyers could choose the electric E-Drive, the Hybrid, or the Race model with maximum performance. Since production ceased in 2015, with a limited number of 918 Spyders, you’ll rarely come across this hybrid hypercar.

Mercedes-AMG GT

Despite its supercar status, the Mercedes-AMG GT is fit for road use. Maintenance isn’t costly, the cabin is comfortable enough for long journeys, and there’s enough trunk space for a weekend getaway. It also has different trims with varying power outputs and performance levels. Buyers can choose from the GT coupe, the luxurious GT63 S with a V8 engine, or the extreme GT R built for racers.
