These days so-called hypercars are replacing mere supercars on the list of the world's most expensive rides, and the revved-up prices are accelerating accordingly.
The minimum cost of entry to this ultra high-end list (compiled by GTSpirit) in 2016? An eye-popping $2.7 million. But for many exotic car aficionados, that's a small price to pay for supercar supremacy.
Here, the six most expensive supercars in the world:
1. Aston Martin-Red Bull AM-RB 001 – $3.9 Million
This F1-inspired hypercar jointly built by Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 coupled with an F1 energy recovery system good for 900 hp. It will be limited to less than 150 units.
2. 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta – $3.8 Million
Powered by a 6.2 liter V12 coupled with a HY-KERN unit good for 950 hp. Limited to less than 100 units, all sold out long in advance to the marque's best customers.
3. 2017 McLaren P1 LM – $3.7 Million
Built by Lanzante Motorsport, only 6 will be produced worldwide. At 986 hp it's the hardest core version of McLaren's already lethal P1 hypercar.
4. Bugatti Vision GranTurismo – $3 Million+
This bit of insanity was only built for show purposes and as part of the lineup for Playstation’s GranTurismo game – for now. Word is a Saudi prince paid big bucks to gets his hands on it.
5. 2018 Mercedes-AMG R50 – $3 Million est.
This F1-inspired concept was created to commemorate AMG’s 50th anniversary next year. It will reportedly boast 1,300 hp thanks to a four-cylinder turbo engine coupled with two electric motors and only 50 of them will be built.
6. Icona Vulcano Titanium – $2.7 Million
The world’s first titanium supercar might not have the looks of the others on this list, but the Italian stallion does have a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 producing 670 hp. Top speed is said to be 220 mph with a 0-62 mph time of 2.8 seconds.
