The Arrow can accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in just 2.9 seconds and can reach speeds of 224 mph (360 km/h), thanks to its powerful engine and a body inspired by the F 22 Raptor fighter jet.

Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio ($3.0 million)

Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio ($3.0 million) autoexpress.co

The Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio entices by its sheer scarcity. It costs 3 million but with only 6 units being produced, many rich hypercar lovers would rush to get one. The machine comes with a 4.5 litre V6 with 562 horsepower. Although that is not exactly incredible, the car’s body is light meaning it can be tossed from 0-60 in a really short time.

Lykan Hypersport ($3.4 million)

Lykan Hypersport ($3.4 million) autoexpress.co

The Lykan hypersport is the work of W Motors, Dubai. That should give you a hint at the luxury to expect. It was the car Vin Diesel used to jump between two towers in Fast and Furious 7. It costs $3,4000,000, which can get you a waterfront house in Miami. The car comes with a 3.7-litre twin-turbocharged engine. What shows that this car is indeed from Dubai are its headlamps.

Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5 million)

Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5 million) autoexpress.co

This looks more like a spaceship built by an advanced alien race. A beautiful spaceship. The car’s designers gave it stunning angles and curves in all the right places, creating a remarkable piece of metal, glass, rubber, and plastic. The visual effect;y match with the performance. It is named Veneno which translates ‘venom’, and if you are not loaded enough, the Lamborghini Veneno will sure suck the life out of your bank account with its 4.5 million price tag.

CCX Trevita ($4.8 million)

CCX Trevita ($4.8 million) autoexpress.co

Koenigsegg is here once again to close the list with its CCXR Trevita. The car is built with a 4.8-litre V8 engine which manages to crank out 1004 horsepower. But the engineering is just one part. The most impressive trick this car has lies in its finish. Koenigsegg developed a type of finish where diamond dust is mixed with resin to create a luxurious finish. This plus its exceptional performance are what warrants its 4.8 million price. But, even if you had the money, you probably wouldn’t have gotten it since only 3 were produced.
