All-Time 25 Best Supercars
Whether you’re looking to invest in a supercar for financial reasons or to simply add to your collection, it pays to know what the best of the best are. When it comes to truly special hypercars, the following vehicles make the cut for our list of all-time 25 best supercars.
Top 25 Supercars
Top performance. Superior bodywork. Incredible influence. There are many factors that make a supercar truly “super.” The following luxury vehicles deserve a spot on our list based on factors like monetary value, performance, legacy, and overall popularity.
1. Porsche Carrera GT
Preceded by the Porsche 911 GT1, the Porsche Carrera GT is perhaps the definitive Porsche, with a streamlined body and open-seat design that makes it perfect for long drives along the highway. Handling this German vehicle is plenty of fun as well thanks to its 6-speed manual transmission gearbox, rear-wheel-drive layout, 208 MPH max speed, and 0-60 run in 3.5 seconds.
It should be no surprise that it can cost upwards of $2 million for the perfect car, firmly solidifying its spot on our top 25 list.
2. Porsche 959 Sport
This high-performance car began as a race car before finding new life as a street-legal production that made headlines all over the globe. At the time of its debut, the Porsche 959’s twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine was the fastest street-legal production car in the entire world, capable of reaching over 200 MPH. How could we not include it on our list?
If you want to add this machine to your collection, it could cost you also upwards of $2 million.
3. McLaren Senna
Part of the McLaren Ultimate Series, the McLaren Senna is named after Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna. Its twin-turbo V8 engine means this machine can go from 0 to 62 MPH in just 2.8 seconds and can reach a max speed of 208 MPH.
Like the first two exotic cars on our list, the McLaren Senna can sell for easily $1 million+ for the right spec’d auto.
4. Ferrari F50
Ferrari is practically synonymous with hypercar, and the Ferrari F50 is a work of mechanical genius even by this Italian manufacturer’s standards.
The Ferrari F50 is a limited-production, rear-wheel-drive coupe that doesn’t sacrifice performance for style. Running on a naturally aspirated V12 engine, the F50 produces an incredible amount of downforce for a street-legal vehicle and revs up to 8,000 RPM at 512 HP.
Ferraris are high-demand, high-performance vehicles, and their price tags reflect that; an F50 can sell for nearly $4-5 million for the most pristine example.
5. Ferrari Enzo
Named after the company’s founder, the Ferrari Enzo’s F1-inspired, aerodynamic design means that this vehicle looks just as amazing as any vehicle you would see on a professional racing track, providing plenty of thrills for daredevils wanting a taste of the Formula 1 circuit.
The Ferrari Enzo isn’t just all good looks, though. It also boasts an impressive powertrain: a 6.0L V12 engine coupled with a 6-speed automated manual transmission that can rev up to 7,800 RPM at 651 HP and can reach speeds up to 221 MPH.
Produced for only a few years, the Ferrari Enzo quickly became a collectors item with the average resale price being over $3 million.
6. Porsche 918 Spyder
Is it any surprise that yet another Porsche made our list?
The Porsche 918 Spyder distinguishes itself as a plug-in hybrid with a V8 engine. The combined (engine/electric motors) output of this vehicle tops out at a whopping 875 HP and can reach a top speed of 214 MPH. With power like this on the road, it should come as no surprise that one version of the 918 broke the 7-minute lap barrier on the 12.8-mile Nürburgring road course, the first street-legal production car to do so.
With power like that, it makes sense that the average cost of a 918 Spyder is over $1.5 million.
7. Koenigsegg Jesko
Nobody does luxury cars quite like Koenigsegg, and the Jesko is one of the finest vehicles from this manufacturer to date. Featuring a twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the Jesko Absolut variant of this car has a theoretical top speed of 350 MPH, according to the manufacturer. That makes the Jesko Absolut one of—if not the—fastest cars on the market. This speed is only possible thanks to an incredibly powerful engine that can produce 1,281 HP at 7,800 RPM using normal gasoline and a whopping 1,603 HP at 5,100 RPM using e85 biofuel.
The Absolut variant of this vehicle can cost about $3.5 million, an unsurprising amount based on the car’s performance.
8. Bugatti Chiron
The Bugatti Chiron is an all-wheel-drive exotic vehicle that set the world record for the 0-249-0 MPH acceleration, finishing in just 41.96 seconds in 2017. Although that record has since been broken (by another Koenigsegg, the Regera), this vehicle is still noticeable for its impressive capabilities, particularly in regards to top speed. The Super Sport 300+ high-performance variant, for example, has an incredible top speed of 273.4 MPH.
A Bugatti Chiron, like every other vehicle on this list, comes with a high cost; a 2022 unit has an average cost of roughly $3.5 million.
9. Jag XJ220
Also known as the Jaguar XJ220, we have to include the Jag XJ220 on our list for being an innovative vehicle at the time of its release in the early 1990s. Featuring a twin-turbo V6 engine coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission, this Jaguar set a Guinness World Record in 1991 by reaching a max speed of 212.3 MPH. A few years later it achieved a new max speed of 217.1 MPH. While many other supercars can reach this speed now, at the time this was the fastest official speed ever reached by a street-legal, standard production car. Besides being wicked fast, the XJ220 also made itself known for smooth handling, even at higher speeds.
The Jaguar XJ220 has a modest (compared to the other vehicles on our list) average price of $500,000 but certainly its appearance and rarity is what separates it from modern day half-a-million dollar cars.
10. Ferrari LaFerrari
LaFerrari looks stunning, with a bold, strong design that differentiates itself from the more streamlined looks of other Ferrari vehicles. LaFerrari is a mild hybrid with a V12 engine that can reach a top speed of 218 MPH. Its bold design made it an instant classic, and its performance capabilities continue to delight car enthusiasts the world over.
Given its popularity and the fact that LaFerrari was limited production, this vehicle often sells for over $3.5 million, unless it was for donation of course, which hit a record $7 million back in 2016.
11. Ferrari F40
The F40 is the last vehicle that Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari ever personally approved. And what a vehicle it is! At the time of its release, the F40 was the best the company had to offer, being faster, stronger, and more expensive than any other Ferrari to date. It could reach a max speed of over 200 MPH, produce 471 HP, and the average cost of this vehicle is $2.5 million, although some variants sell for even more.
12. Ferrari 288 GTO
The 288 GTO is the immediate predecessor of the F40 and was one of the top luxury road cars of its time, despite being a limited-production model with only 272 units ever created. At the time of its release, it was one of the best-performing cars in the industry, capable of reaching 189 MPH and producing 395 HP and 366 lb-ft of torque.
Like other vehicles from this company, the 288 GTO is incredibly popular among collectors and can sell for over $3.5 million.
13. McLaren P1
Part of the McLaren Ultimate Series, the renowned British car manufacturer produced the P1 from 2013 to 2015. During that time, this plug-in hybrid became well-known for wedding hybrid power to tech commonly seen in high-performance F1 vehicles, making it a truly modern luxury vehicle. The 3.8 L twin-turbocharged V engine, paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, means that this vehicle can reach a top speed of 217 MPH with ease and can go from 0 to 60 MPH in under 3 seconds.
Like other supercars on this list, the P1 is popular among collectors and can regularly sell for more than $1.1 million.
14. McLaren F1
The predecessor of the P1, the F1’s superior performance and slick design made it popular almost immediately upon release, and its popularity continues to influence the design of other McLarens (and other hypercars) today.
Featuring a BMW S70/2 V12 engine, the McLaren F1 broke the world record for fastest production car in 1998, reaching a max speed of an astonishing 240.1 MPH. With such impressive capabilities, it shouldn’t be any surprise that the GTR variant of the F1 won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The F1 is a distinctly stylish and high-performing vehicle, making it popular among celebrities and car enthusiasts since its debut in the 1990s. While an F1 can regularly sell for more than $10 million, in 2021 a unit sold for $20.5 million!
15. Lamborghini Reventón
The Reventón is truly a limited-production vehicle: only 21 coupes and 15 roadsters were ever produced (and one of those was made solely for a museum). While many other street-legal supercars mimic racing cars, the exterior of this vehicle drew inspiration from airplanes, giving it a uniquely streamlined, compact appearance. Its 6.5L V12 engine means this vehicle can go from 0 to 62 MPH in 3.2 seconds and can reach a max speed of 211 MPH.
Thanks to its unique design and rareness, a single unit can go for over $1.5 million.
16. Maserati MC12
It’s certainly no Ferrari Enzo, but Maserati tried, and this race car-inspired beast sports an all-carbon fiber exterior, engineered in such a way that it optimizes downforce, making for a truly powerful ride. It can reach a max speed of 205 MPH and comes available in both coupe and Targa top body styles, making this Maserati model a fantastic choice for racing along the highway and downtown streets alike.
A limited-production model with only 50 street-legal units ever produced, an MC12 can sell for roughly $3 million.
17. Pagani Zonda
With an impressive 20-year production run, the Pagani Zonda helped define the luxury supercar industry for decades starting with our favorite the C12. Despite only 140 Pagani models being produced to date, several variants of the Zonda exist, but perhaps none as impressive as the Zonda HP Barchetta. This 2017 model could produce 789 HP, 627 lb-ft of torque, and reach a top speed of 221 MPH.
An HP Barchetta can sell for $17.6 million, an unsurprising amount based on its limited availability and top-notch performance.
18. Chevrolet Corvette C8 Z06
A departure from the European names on this list, the Chevrolet Corvette is an all-American classic sports car that captures attention wherever it goes thanks to a fantastic design that’s both attractive and powerful. The Z06 is the performance variant of the C8, the 8th generation of this truly all-American vehicle. While still paying homage to the classic vehicle that helped define mid-20th century Americana, the Z06 sports an updated modern design with all the bells and whistles to match, including an updated infotainment touchscreen system and a powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine.
Those who want the high-performance Z06 should know that the 2023 model starts in the low $100,000 range. However, with the 3LT Z7 Convertible variant, the sticker can come closer to the $200,000 range.
19. Dodge Viper ACR Extreme Aero
The Dodge Viper lives up to its name: it’s powerful and aggressive. The ACR (American Racing Club) variant with Extreme Aero Package is even more so, producing nearly 1 ton (2,000 lbs) of downforce. This impressive display means that there is some sacrifice in terms of top speed, although the ACR with the Extreme Aero Package can still reach a respectable 177 MPH, plenty fast enough for speed-lovers.
The 2017 Dodge Viper ACR Extreme Aero is truly an extreme vehicle, and has a value of roughly $250,000.
20. Lamborghini Diablo SV
The Lamborghini Diablo was an immediately popular car thanks to its bold, sharp lines and fun handling. The Diablo SV, or Super Veloce, is a more powerful variant of the base Diablo, with a n output of 428 lb-ft of torque at 5,900 RPM and 510 HP at 7,100 RPM. And, with a speed maxing out at over 200 MPH, it’s easy to see why this eye-catching vehicle practically became the face of the Need for Speed series.
While eventually succeeded by the Murciélago SV, the Diablo and its SV variants continue to be popular collectors items that can routinely sell for roughly a quarter of a million dollars.
21. Lamborghini Murciélago SV
Also known as the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670–4 SuperVeloce, the Murciélago SV is the track-inspired, high-performance variant of the standard Murciélago. Its improved, more powerful V12 engine is capable of producing up to 487 lb-ft of torque and 661 horsepower. Coupled with a revised spoiler, the SV variant also produces greater downforce than the standard variant. That power doesn’t necessarily translate to slow speeds, either, as the SV can reach a max speed of 209 MPH. But this vehicle isn’t just powerful and fast; it also has improved steering to make handling at higher speeds more responsive.
A Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670–4 SuperVeloce has an average MSRP of $450,000.
22. Lamborghini Countach
The Lamborghini Countach is a classic vehicle that helped popularize the wedge-shaped design of so many supercars today. It features a V12 engine that gets the vehicle to a max speed of 217.5 MPH, a feat that is truly impressive considering its production timeline (1974 – 1990).
The Lamborghini Aventador succeeded the Murciélago in 2011, quickly becoming one of Lamborghini’s best-selling models of all time. While this supercar is no longer in production, its legacy and performance make it a highly sought-after collectors item, with one unit in 2022 selling for $2.64 million.
23. Ford GT
The Ford GT is a love letter to the groundbreaking Ford GT40, the racing car that challenged Ferrari’s domination of the international racing circuit. The first generation of the GT had many modern creature comforts in the interior while sporting a classic 1960s race car-inspired exterior. The second generation, still in production today, has a much sleeker, more futuristic design.
The most impressive vehicle from the GT lineup is the limited-edition, track-only 2023 Ford GT Mk IV. This high-performance unit can reach a max speed of 205 MPH and go from 0-60 in roughly 3 seconds. Coupled with an aggressive output of over 800 HP, it’s easy to see why car enthusiasts are eager to get their hands on this masterpiece.
Ford has stated that it will only produce (by hand!) 67 of the 2023 GT Mk IV to pay homage to the 1967 GT40 Mk IV. As such, the starting price is around $1.7 million.
24. McLaren Elva
The McLaren Elva is another model from the McLaren Ultimate Series to make our list. This car had to make our list for its winning combination of style and performance. The Elva looks great, with sleek lines, a low height, and open-seat design. Those looks pair well with a responsive 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and powerful twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which can produce 804 HP and 590 lb-ft of torque.
With less than 150 units ever produced, the McLaren Elva is an elusive vehicle that can cost upwards of $1,690,000.
25. Ferrari Monza
What could round out our list except yet another Ferrari? The Monza is truly a classic vehicle, with production running from 1953 to 1957. And, thanks to many of the models’ switch to a 4-cylinder engine, helped make Ferrari well-known in motorsports, helping set the stage for the brand to become the world-renown entity it is today.
From 2019 to 2022, Ferrari decided to honor the Monza by releasing two new models, the Monza SP1 and SP2. While more modern in its appearance (and obviously performance), its looks are still reminiscent of the original 1950s car that helped make Ferrari a household name.
A 1950s Monza is a rare vehicle that can cost several million dollars. Even the recent SP1 and SP2 models are expensive, with each one being valued at roughly $1.8 million.
