7. Ferrari LaFerrari, $2.5 million

The Ferrari LaFerrari, was priced at $1.4 million when first released and is one of the most striking cars on the road:

The LaFerrari is a carbon, two-seat hypercar that combines a 6.3 liter Ferrari V12 engine with a KERS battery pack and an electric motor that gives 950 bhp and 663lb-feet of torque.

It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and goes up to 124 mph under 7 seconds. The car can reach 217 mph.

The F60 can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 3.1 seconds, and the top speed is believed to be 200 miles per hour, just a little less than the F12’s 211 miles per hour.

It has a 6.2-liter V12 engine and churns out 740 horsepower.

5. Pagani Huayra, $3 million

Priced at $1.5 million originally, the Pagani Huayra is famous for its out-of-this-world performance. The car has been named after the Incan God of Winds (Huayra Tata) and is the successor to the very renowned Pagani Zonda:

This means that the car goes from 0 to 62 miles per hour in less than 3.5 seconds, and it can easily go over 230 miles per hour.

Owning one of these now will cost $2-3 million.
