10. Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, Jaguar XJ220 and Ferrari Enzo (tied) – 217 mph.
These exotic-looking sports cars produce astonishing top-end speeds.
The Jaguar XJ220 is the oldest, being built in 1992, but produces 542 horsepower.
The Ferrari sports a mid-mounted V12 engine and a hefty price tag because only 399 of them were ever built. That value of the Ferrari increases if one of the 399 is totaled in a crash.
The Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. It features a Mercedes V12 engine that pushes out 669 horsepower. Priced at nearly $2 million, don’t plan on seeing this sports car on the road anytime soon.
9. Lamborghini Aventador, Ascari A10 and Aston Martin One-77 (tied) – 220 mph.
On a list like this, it wasn’t if, but rather, when Lamborghini would make an appearance. The Aventador can produce 700 horsepower with its V12 engine and has a base price of $379,700.
Because it only has a V8 engine, you may be surprised to see the Ascari A10 on this list. Its engine size doesn’t clamp down on its pure speed, however. Priced at $650,000, this exotic sports car can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds.
Aston Martin’s One-77 is a more traditional sports car with a massive 7.3L V12 engine, 750 horsepower and a base price of $1.85 million. The car is named after the number of units manufactured.
8. Gumpert Apollo and Noble M600 (tied) – 225 mph.
Both of these sports car feature V8 engines that produce up to 650 horsepower. They also ring in at $450,000 and $350,000, respectively. What separates the two high-powered vehicles is design. The Gumpert is a “look at me” sports car while the Noble features a considerably sleeker look.
7. Zenvo ST1 – 233 mph.
The Zenvo ST1 is full of raw power from its twin-charged 7.0L V8 engine that’s powered by 1,104 horsepower. The Danish-built sports car isn’t cheap at $1.2 million because only 15 were ever built.
4. Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo – 248 mph.
This smooth-looking sports car doesn’t feature many lines and angles, like the other cars on this list, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have power. The Saleen can power from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds on its twin-turbo aluminum V8 engine that sports 750 horsepower. It is priced at $555,000.
3. SSC Ultimate Aero and 9ff GT9-R:– 257 mph.
Both of these cars feature futuristic-looking designs and impressive twin turbo V8 engines. Three years ago, the SSC Ultimate Aero was recorded as the fastest car in the world. Today, priced at $654,000, it sits third on the list.
1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – 267 mph.
And coming in at number one: The sleek, sexy and aerodynamic Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. This impressive sports car accelerates 0-60 in 2.4 seconds using its aluminum narrow angle 8L V16 engine with 1,200 HP. How much to get behind the wheel of this speed demon? A cool $2.4 million.
