Hypercars and supercars make for two highly competitive segments. These days, if you want one of these cars with state-of-the-art design elements, tech gadgets, and performance, you will likely see a sticker price with seven figures on the window. Take, for example, the Bugatti Veyron. As an industry leader, the Veyron easily prices over $1 million.
Plenty of other high-end names exist in the game, from Lamborghini to Ferrari, McLaren to Porsche. But which hypercars and supercars are genuinely worth these hefty price tags?
2020 McLaren Speedtail
First revealed in October 2018, the McLaren Speedtail came hot off the line with remarkably quick acceleration and cutting-edge technology integrated into its design. The body looks like something from the future, made from superbly stylized sheet metal. Unfortunately, this car isn’t fully street-legal in the United States, and there are only 106 units out there.
The 2020 Speedtail has a starting price of around $2 million, and it is priced appropriately. It can reach a top speed of 250 mph, making it the fastest McLaren ever made. The hybrid powertrain under the hood provides you with a mind-blowing 1,035 horsepower. You will be insanely lucky if you can find one for sale.
2022 Bugatti La Voiture Noire
The 2022 Bugatti La Voiture Noire is quite possibly one of the most expensive cars you can buy. When it launched in 2019, the La Voiture Noire had a $13.4 million price tag. It held the title of the most expensive new car to buy until 2021, when the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail hit the market.
You probably will not stand a chance of acquiring the La Voiture Noire, though, as there is only one in the world. At least you can ogle it from the few existing pictures.
2019 Bugatti Chiron
Another Bugatti with a beefy price tag is the 2019 Chiron. It costs between $2,998,000 and $3,260,000 and is known as the successor to the well-loved Veyron. With its nearly 1500 hp coming from the 8.0-liter, 16-cylinder turbocharged engine, you get much power.
What’s more, Bugatti gives you a sport trim level that is almost 40 pounds lighter than the standard Chiron. It achieves this through an advanced use of carbon fiber.
2017 Ferrari F12tdf
From 2015 to 2017, Ferrari only built 799 units of its F12tdf model, with only 299 making it stateside. Carbon fiber is used all throughout the design to keep the vehicle lightweight and aerodynamic. Also of note, this was the first Ferrari model ever to come with standard four-wheel drive.
The F12tdf can make it from 0-60 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 211 mph. This acceleration rate is only about 1.3 seconds slower than the LaFerrari.
Given that this model is considerably rare – especially in the US – and loaded to the brim with options, you can expect to find it selling for about $1,242,500.
2020 Ford GT Mk II
Hand-constructed by Multimatic, the Ford GT Mk II only had 45 units made for 2020. Finding one of these track-worthy cars will set you back at least $1.2 million, and with so few of them having been made, it is nearly impossible to find one up for sale.
The Mk II is built on a platform similar to the standard GT but with a few key exceptions, with the trick hydraulic system’s removal being one of the biggest differences. The street-legal GT has a hydraulic system that controls everything from aerodynamics to suspension. In the Mk II, it gets five-way Multimatic DSSV spool-valve dampers and a dual-element fixed rear wing, which shaves off a whopping 200 pounds. You also get a 400-percent downforce increase, which helps justify that expensive price tag.
2022 Koenigsegg Jesko
Got $3.4 million burning a hole in your pocket? Likely not, but if you do, the 2022 Koenigsegg Jesko is nothing short of bonkers. The standard Jesco can provide ample power with its twin-turbo aluminum 5.0-liter V8 engine paired with a 9-speed Light Speed Transmission.
Meanwhile, the Jesko Absolut is more track-oriented, with the huge rear wing taken off to lessen drag and downforce. Instead, you get two rear hood fins that improve the Asbolut’s high-speed stability. The 1,280 hp its twin-turbo V8 puts on tap will have you up and moving quickly.
2020 Lamborghini Sian
Looking to spend $3.5 million on a Lamborghini? You get what you pay for when you buy a 2020 Sian. From 2020-2022, 63 coupes and 19 roadsters were made, so you will have trouble finding one for sale. This vehicle happens to mark Lamborghini’s first foray into mass-produced hybrids.
A V12 gas-powered engine is matched to an electric motor. On the Sian FKP 37, you get 808 horsepower. The hood will likely remind you of the Countach’s recessed center portion in a V-shape. However, the one on the Sian doesn’t open.
2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta
When it hit the market, the 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari sold for a starting price of $1.5 million. It was originally put onto the market in 2013 as a limited-edition hypercar, and its engine was, at the time, Ferrari’s strongest naturally aspirated model. It could create 950 hp, reaching 60 mph in 2.7 seconds.
The 2016-2018 Aperta variant only had 210 units made, hovering around the $2 million mark. As recently as May 9, 2022, a 161-mile version sold for auction at Bring a Trailer, garnering $5,360,000. This is all due to its current rarity status.
2005 Porsche Carrera GT
Another Bring a Trailer auction that made big bucks recently is the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. It sold for over $1.9 million, over $400,000 more than the previous record. Its 5.7-liter V10 engine is paired with a six-speed manual transaxle with rear-wheel drive and a twin-plate ceramic clutch.
Built from the Le Mans prototype, this model features a lot of carbon fiber for a lightweight design. The Carrera GTs that have shown up on BaT have exceedingly low mileage, and you will occasionally find Silver and Black paint jobs. The Guards Red ones are the toughest to find.
2021 McLaren Elva
The least expensive 2021 McLaren Elva has a starting MSRP of $1,690,000, so be prepared to pay quite a bit for an Elva. With a top speed of 203 mph and 802 hp on tap, the Elva’s twin-scroll turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine gets the car up to 60 mph in about 2.8 seconds.
The body is designed with bespoke carbon fiber with deployable ROPS. Also, there aren’t any windows on the track variant. Strange, right? But, somehow, it works for the Elva. Just be prepared to don some gloves and a helmet to drive this beast.
Quite a few exotic cars sell for over $1 million, but some can get ridiculously expensive, mostly due to their rarity factors. If you get lucky, you might find one up for auction, but be prepared to fight a lot of high bidders for some of these super sleek hypercars and supercars.
