Even those who aren’t car aficionados can appreciate an exotic car. Exotic cars, also called supercars, refer to vehicles that have characteristics not common in everyday cars we see on the road—making them more rare, more mysterious and much more expensive. We rounded up some of the best exotic cars in the world today. Check them out below.
What are the top 10 supercars?
With an unprecedented 1,479 horsepower, the Chiron has a W16 engine, making it the most powerful production car in Bugatti’s history. It has a carbon fiber body structure, independent suspension and a Haldex all-wheel drive system. One of the fastest supercars out there, the Chiron goes from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.4 seconds and has a top speed of 261 mph. With only 500 units produced, the Bugatti Chiron can be yours for a cool ~$3.3 million.
As a celebration of 20 years since its first production car, Koenigsegg has created the limited edition CC850. With a modernized design of its 2002 CC8S, it has a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine and a one-of-a-kind gearbox called the Engage Shift System (ESS). The ESS is a multi-clutch nine-speed automatic with an old-school clutch pedal so drivers can operate it like a traditional six-speed manual transmission. The Koenigsegg supercar costs ~$3.65 million.
Aston Martin One-77
Looking straight out of a James Bond film (but never featured in one, as of now), the One-77 hypercar costs a hefty ~$1.5 million. Not surprising, as it’s the fastest and most technologically-advanced Aston Martin vehicle ever built. It has a six-speed automated manual transmission and height-adjustable pushrod suspension paired with dynamic stability control. The name came from the 77 units that were produced. Each is spoken for, but the estimated cost is around ~$1.8 million.
Paying homage to the Formula 1, McLaren’s latest Ultimate Series hypercar has a top speed of 250 miles per hour. As McLaren’s first ever Hyper-GT and its most aerodynamically efficient car, the Speedtail is the fastest McLaren to date. The company describes it as “a pure fusion of science and art in automotive form,” referring to its innovative design and personalization capabilities. The Speedtail is listed at a price of ~$2.5 million.
One of the most coveted supercars out there, the Ferrari Enzo is a V-12 powered vehicle named after the Italian carmaker’s founder. Introduced in 2002, 399 original units were sold—and a 400th was donated to the Vatican for charity. You can get your hands on an as-new Enzo for ~3.31 million.
Pagani Huayra Roadster BC
A six-year effort, the Huayra Roadster BC is considered by many to be a sculpture on wheels, with its carbon fiber panels, titanium fasteners and leather straps that lock the front and rear clamshells in place. The time and artistry that goes into the production means only 40 will exist. If you’re able to get your hands on one, you’ll have to fork over ~$4 million for it.
Formerly Shelby SuperCars Inc, SSC is an American car manufacturer that created the Tuatara using a decade of research. Its design is tuned to produce a “near perfect front to rear aero balance” and unmatched aerodynamics—and at a top speed of over 300 mph. The vehicle is positioned to beat the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport+ as the world’s fastest production car. Only 100 limited-run units of the Tuatara will be produced, priced from ~$1.3 million to ~$1.9 million.
This battery-powered EV came from the mind of Mate Rimac, founder of the Croatian startup. Each of the Nevera’s four tires is individually driven by surface-mounted magnet motors, producing a combined 1,741 feet-pound of torque. According to the manufacturer, the car can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 1.85 seconds. The Rimac Nevera costs ~$2.1 million.
Porsche Carrera GT
Although it’s been out of production since 2007, the Carrera GT is still considered one of the greatest modern classic sports cars of all time. It was a game-changer when introduced in 2003 at the Geneva International Motor Show. It pushed boundaries with a 612VPS V10 engine and pioneered the use of pure carbon fiber for its monocoque. And, every embellishment on the vehicle’s body is functional. At over 15 years old, these cars still go for an average of ~$1.2 million.
You may not think “supercar” when you hear the name Ford, but the GT40 finished first, second, and third at the famed Le Mans race in 1966. As an homage to these automobiles, the company produced a new version in the early 2000s. With a 660 horsepower twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, it’s like a race car you can drive to work. The 2022 Ford GT starts at ~$500,000.
What is the most exotic supercar in the world?
It’s up for debate and can be subjective depending on who you ask. According to motor1.com, today’s two most expensive vehicles are the Bugatti La Voiture Noire—a one-of-a-kind model costing $13.1 million that already has an owner—and the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, another one-off build rumored to cost $28 million.

Transporting a supercar
If you’re looking to add to your supercar collection and need a purchase shipped, you’ll definitely require the safest and most reliable auto transport in the industry. Even if you just need an everyday (and reasonably priced) vehicle shipped, here are a few questions to consider: Is the company licensed and insured? Do they have a good reputation? What do customers who’ve used the broker or carrier think about their service?
Any supercar, exotic vehicle or low-clearance sports car would be shipped in an enclosed carrier. This protects your investment from the elements such as harsh weather, pollution and road debris, while providing a barrier from inquisitive eyes during transport.
