All of us have the affinity for exotic cars, but only a few people can actually afford them. They are pricey, but they come with the latest technology as well as powerful engines. These high-performance vehicles wow the people all over the world day after day and even though most of them are limited in production, they are a major part of the car industry. We present you 16 most popular exotic vehicles you can currently find on the market.
16. Bugatti Veyron Hypercar “La Finale” – est. $2.6 million
The first time we saw this car was at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The name “La Finale” means that this particular Veyron is the last one produced by the company. The 450th model was sold to a Middle East Collector for a substantial sum of money. This one slightly differs from the regular Veyron, which served as the inspiration and what we like about “La Finale” is that it comes in a two-tone paint finish – the combination of red and black. Under the hood, a turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine is used, and it produces 1,183 hp and 1,106 lb-ft of torque.
15. Aston Martin Vulcan Hypercar – est. $2.3 million
Every exotic car fan must put the Aston Martin Vulcan hypercar among the favorites. Under the hood, this model has a V12 engine that delivers more than 800 horsepower. Most of the parts are made of carbon fiber to reduce the weight as much as possible, and the first time we saw this car was at the Le Mans 24 Hours race. The Vulcan Hypercar is track-oriented and if you are not used to driving on the track that is OK. The company includes a driver program to help you maximize the performance of the Vulcan Hypercar and see what this beast is all about.
14. McLaren 675 LT Supercar – est. $600,000
Another exotic that is definitely among the best is the McLaren 675 LT Supercar. The inspiration for this model was the 1997 F1 GTR race car, but unlike the original, the 675 LT Supercar features far better 3.8-liter V8 engine. McLaren only offered this model in coupe form, while the complete output is 666 bhp. The aerodynamics is extraordinary, and this is one of the best-track focused vehicles you will be able to find.
13. Lamborghini SuperVeloce – $493,000
Under the hood, the Lamborghini SuperVeloce packs a 6.5-liter V12 powerplant that delivers 740 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque, which is more than the Lamborghini Aventador. This car is super fast, and its top speed is 217 mph whereas it can reach 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Besides going wild with this Lambo on the track, the SuperVeloce is street-legal, which is great for all of those who want to show off.
12. Ferrari FF – $300,000
The Ferrari FF may not be the most expensive car on this list, but it is certainly one of the best. It comes with a 6.3-liter V12 unit good for 651 horsepower, and it can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. Unlike most of the exotic models, the FF has more space in the cabin, and it can fit more than two people, whereas it features an AWD configuration.
11. Rolls-Royce Wraith – $294,000
Rolls-Royce Wraith is the combination of raw power and luxury, and it is powered by a 6.6-liter V12 unit that generates 624 ponies. Even though it is massive, the Wraith is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. Moreover, the folks at the company managed to mix classic look with the modern technologies, making this vehicle one of a kind. The top speed of the Wraith is limited to 155 mpg, which means that it will not disappoint in this aspect either.
10. Ferrari 488 GTB – $275,000
To replace the 458 Italia, Ferrari came up with the 488 GTB! This supercar packs a turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 under the hood, and it is the first turbocharged engine in a Ferrari for a while, it delivers 660 stallions. The downside of this car is that it weighs about 1,000 pounds more than the F40, but it also has about 200 hp extra, which makes up for it.
9. McLaren 650S Coupe – $265,500
The McLaren 650S Coupe is another beast on our list, and it features a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine rated at 641 hp. It takes only 2.8 seconds for it to reach 60 mph whereas the top speed is 207 mph. The transmission used is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, and even though the 650S has less power than the 675 LT, these two models are very similar in a head-to-head duel.
8. Porsche 911 GT3 RS – $176,985
The Porsche decided to enhance the exotic car market with the introduction of the 911 GT3 RS which has a 4.0-liter V6 engine good for 500 hp and 338 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a seven-speed manual transmission, whereas 3.1 seconds are enough for this car to hit 60 on the clock. Furthermore, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is one of the most beautiful exotic cars you can find.
7. Acura NSX Supercar – $151,500
We have been waiting for the Acura NSX Supercar to arrive for a while and when it did, it immediately became one of the best exotics. It is equipped with a hybrid all-wheel-drive powertrain and at its heart is the twin-turbocharged V6 engine and the transmission attached to it is a nine-speed dual-clutch. Three electric motors are used and being a hybrid and a supercar at the same time is a rare sight. That is why this NSX is special.
6. Bentley EXP10 Speed 6 Coupe – est. $150,000
Everybody knows that Bentley is all about luxury. While the Continental GT may be the most popular choice, the EXP10 Speed 6 Coupe is an exotic car you should definitely consider. It comes with excellent exterior design, and it uses some of the best features and materials in the cabin. Copper elements are included inside and outside whereas the advanced powertrain sits under the hood.
5. Mercedes AMG GT S – $150,000
Mercedes produces one of the best cars in the market, and this AMG GT S can compete against some exotic rivals easily. It comes with a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that is good for 503 horsepower, whereas it can reach 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. Compared to its predecessor, the AMG GT S lost a significant amount of the weight, which makes the car sharp in the corners.
4. Audi R8 Supercar – $117,500
Just like so many German vehicles, the Audi R8 Supercar was introduced at Geneva, and it comes in two forms – with a V10 engine or as an e-tron hybrid. The body of the car looks so much better compared to the body of the original R8 while both selections are excellent, but it depends on what you are looking for. If the V10 is too powerful for you, you can select the smaller 4.2-liter V8 engine that produces 98 hp fewer.
3. Jaguar F-Type R – $99,000
Jaguar is famous for exotic cars, and they have been producing them for more than two decades. The F-Type R is definitely one of the most admirable creations.

The F-Type R can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 second, and it has satisfactory fuel economy ratings for an exotic.
