Ferrari, Pagani, and Lamborghini all make the list.
Last week we gave you a list of the 20 cheapest cars currently for sale in the U.S. While the Nissan Versa and Mitsubishi Mirage are admirable for their value-for-money proposition, the opposite end of the spectrum is often much more interesting to look at.
These are 20 of the most expensive cars you can buy (or probably can’t) right now. Most of them produce close to 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts) and range anywhere from $900,000 to $4.5 million – and that’s before taxes and options.
1. Panoz Esperante GTR-1, $890,000
In the case of the Panoz GTR-1, what was once old is now new again. When it was introduced in the late ‘90s, Panoz’s creation was a pure Le Mans race car, but now the company has opened up the ordering books for a street-legal version. It comes with a 600-hp (447-kW) V8 that cranks out 500 pound-feet (677 Newton-meters) of torque.
2. Pagani Huayra, $1,070,500
For just a bit over $1 million, you can pick up one of the most beautiful, most powerful hypercars on the market. The Pagani Huayra comes with a 720-hp (536-kW) V12 and a top speed of 224 miles per hour (360 kilometers per hour).
