1. Mercedes-Benz AMG One
For the 50th anniversary of Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division, the car brand created a one-of-a-kind luxury vehicle named the AMG One. Its behind-the-driver engine puts out more than 1,000 hp from a 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 that’s helped along by four electric motors: two for powering the front wheels, one that powers the rear wheels, and one that helps power the turbocharger.
For a cool $2.5 million, the AMG One is a supercar that can rev up to 11,000 rpm. Meant to have the “heart of a Formula One race car,” according to Digital Trends, it has tight driving quarters, a low and aerodynamic shape, a racing-style steering wheel, and multiple different driving and suspension modes.
2. Aston Martin Valkyrie
According to Motor 1, the Aston Martin Valkyrie has an estimated price tag beginning at $2.6 million. Resulting from a partnership between Aston Martin and the Red Bull Racing Formula One team, the futuristic Valkyrie is a new hybrid hypercar that can reach top speeds of more than 200 miles per hour. Aston Martin said it plans to build 150 of these models, with a limited model coming at a later date. The Valkyrie’s 6.5-liter, V12 engine puts out 1,160 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.
3. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio
Custom-made for only a handful of pre-existing customers, the spectacular Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio is worth around $3 million. True to Ferrari’s supercar fashion, the Pininfarina houses a 562 hp, 4.5-liter V8 engine, on an ultra-light body. Designed for hugging curves, it has a low, aerodynamic body and headrests built directly into the roll cage. The Pininfarina Sergio can reach 60 miles per hour in around 3 seconds. This invite-only supercar was designed to commemorate the 60-years worth of partnership between Ferrari and designer Pininfarina.
4. Lamborghini Veneno
Jumping up in luxury price tags, the Lamborghini Veneno was named for the Italian word for poison. The undeniably cool supercar was created as a celebration of Lamborghini’s 50th birthday and is worth an estimated $4.5 million. Incredibly fast, the Veneno can reach 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds with a 6.5-liter V12 engine that puts out 740 hp and 507 lb-ft of torque. The Veneno slightly resembles an alien spaceship with headlights that stretch over the hood, an incredibly low body, and the clean, harsh lines of a stealth fighter jet.
5. Bugatti La Voiture Noire
Newly crowned the most expensive car in the world, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is truly one-of-a-kind. Bugatti only produced one of these models and it’s rumored to have a price tag of around $19 million.
