The Five Most Exotic Cars in the World

Five Most Exotic Cars in the World

Exotic cars are unique and considered works of art. Collectors acquire these vehicles, which are not unlike famous masterpieces. Often manufactured in limited editions, these cars far surpass conventional sports cars for a variety of reasons.

Maybach Exelero-$8,000,000.

Being a one of a kind vehicle, the Mayback is easily the rarest vehicle on the face of the earth. The Exelero was introduced in Berlin in 2005. The two-seater coupe weighs more than 2.6 tons. However, despite the weight, the 700bhp V-12 engine achieves speeds of up to 218 mph and goes from zero to 60 in 4.4 seconds. The car was designed by a student at the Pforzheim Polytechnic Department of Transport Design. Extreme luxury is another factor common to exotic cars and is apparent on the exterior and interior of the Exelero. The interior features grey leather with red trim.

Lamborghini Veneno-$4,500,000.

The Veneno was created by Lamborghini in 2013 to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary. Also considered a limited edition, only four models were created. The manufacturer desired to make a car that closely resembled and performed like a Le Mans race car, but was still considered road legal. Using the Aventador for inspiration, the vehicles were equipped with 6.5-liter V-12 engines coupled with 7-speed manual transmissions and all-wheel drive. The Veneno is capable of going from zero to 60 in under three seconds and achieves a top speed of 220mph. The unique trim features hints of red, white and green to represent the flag of Italy.

Lykan Hypersport-$3,400,000.

The Lykan was introduced in 2012 by the Lebanese company known as W Motors. The vehicle was the first luxury sports car manufactured by a Middle Eastern company, which created only seven of teh vehicles. The Hypersport features a 3.7-liter twin-turbo, flat-six engine boasting 740 bhp. The cars have a top speed of 240 mph and go from 0 to 60 in an impressive 2.8 seconds.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sports-$3,000,000 

In 2010, the Veyron was the fastest and most expensive street legal car available. Though no longer the most expensive, the Bugatti retains its reputation for speed, which tops out at 267 mph. The vehicle also accelerates from zero to 60 in a mere 2.5 seconds. The exquisite interior is equally impressive having two-tone beige, high-grade leather throughout. The steering wheel is wrapped in crimson red leather while the seats and seat belts bear matching red stitching. The elaborate door panels feature unique hand-painted Roland Garros airplanes and real gold inserts. The console and levers are trimmed in rosewood.

Aston Martin One-77 $1,400,000.

The name of this luxury sports car comes from the fact that Aston Martin only manufactured 77 of these vehicles. Equipped with 6.0-liter V-12 engines, the car goes an amazing 220 mph, which makes this version the fastest Aston Martin ever created. The One-77 also capably goes from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds. The manufacturer reports that the car owes its speed capability in part to the extensive use of carbon fiber strategically placed throughout the car, which keeps the weight down to 3,300 pounds.
