The list includes creations for a wide range of automakers, including Ferarri, Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce, Pagani, and many others. As you can see, automakers that make iconic models like the Rolls-Royce Ghost are not afraid to create opulent vehicles that set the bar for ultra-luxury vehicles. Scroll down below to see them for yourself.

25. Aston Martin Vulcan: $2.3 million

This track-only Aston Martin is the culmination of a century of racing pedigree and engineering ability, and it’s no secret that that culmination is truly amazing. With a unique, avant-garde, yet still purely Aston Martin design, it’s as harrowing to look at as it is to drive. A 7-liter V12 gives the Vulcan 800 horsepower, which is perfect for a track day, because all your opponents will see are the Vulcan’s iconic spike-like tail lights.

25. Mercedes-AMG One: $2.5 million

The AMG One is named so because it puts Formula One performance into a car for the street. The engine itself is completely derived from a Mercedes F1 car and will produce 748 horsepower, let alone the electric motors that form the other half of the hybrid powertrain, making the car good for over 1000 horsepower combined. It’s no wonder that even at its price, all 275 units have already been sold. At the end of 2021, we are still waiting on the production of the AMG ONE to begin but spied test cars point to deliveries being imminent. Expect this one to be an absolute hit of a hypercar.

24. Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4: $2.5 million

The 2022 Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4 was unveiled in August 2021 as a limited-production hybrid that would carry a price of $2.5 million. Its modern interpretation of the classic supercar has excited many collectors, as well as fans of the original. If there’s a new Countach variant in the future, it would surely be a more expensive one.

23. Ferrari F60 America: $2.6 million

The F12berlinetta-based F60 America was a Ferrari built to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Ferrari’s U.S. operations, and being released on 10/10/14 with only 10 examples produced, it did so quite auspiciously. With an open-top, and a V12 good for 730 horsepower, and a gorgeous blue color scheme reminiscent of the historical NART livery, what more could an American Ferrari lover want?

22. Aston Martin Valkyrie: $2.6 million

Like Mercedes-AMG did with the One, Aston Martin poured all their Formula One knowledge, experience, and engineering talent into the Valkyrie, and what resulted is a car that is truly formidable, and it looks the part as well. A Cosworth-developed V12 is matched by exterior design and stance that makes the Valkyrie look like it could pounce at any moment, and it can.

21. Ferrari LaFerrari FXX-K Evo: $2.7 million

We thought that Ferrari pushed its limits with the LaFerrari, being a hybrid hypercar in the Holy Trinity, but when they turned the LaFerrari into the track-only FXX-K, we were proved wrong. Only 40 units were produced, and all are kept by Ferrari to let their owners drive for track day events, which is a good thing because only Ferrari could keep a 1,036 horsepower car capable of 217 mph truly safe.

20. Koenigsegg Jesko: $2.8 million

Anyone who has the privilege of opening the “dihedral synchro-helix” doors of a Koenigsegg knows that something incredibly powerful (and incredibly costly) lies inside. This couldn’t be truer than in the case of the Jesko, as it seems that with each passing year, Koenigsegg’s capabilities get even more outlandish and unprecedented. With up to 1,603 horsepower, a top speed that we don’t even know yet, and creature comforts like power-adjustable seats and Apple CarPlay, the Jesko might just be the best Koenigsegg yet.

19. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio: $3 million

A tribute to design house Pininfarina’s late former chairman, Sergio Pininfarina, this 458-based Barchetta is a beautiful tribute to the spirits of both Ferrari and Pininfarina alike. Pininfarina’s signature sweeping lines make the car into an ultra-futuristic, sculpted, and serene vehicle, with design elements that echo the iconic Ferrari Pininfarina Mythos concept of the 90s. Such an artful statement is surely worth its price.

18. Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport: $3.3 million

Bugatti calls it “the purest Bugatti Chiron ever.” Substantial improvements in the chassis, gearbox, and engine back that claim up. And for the onlooker, styling cues like the number on the grille echo Bugatti’s rich and proud racing heritage. If what you want is a Bugatti that strives to achieve the pinnacle of driving experience, the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport is likely your best bet.

17. Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron: $3.4 million

Mansory is a German coachbuilder known for making some of the most exciting, rare, luxurious, and expensive cars we’ve ever seen. One of their greatest efforts is the Vivere Bugatti Veyron, which is a modified Veyron that features a signature “V” design throughout and an impossibly classic black and white color scheme. Few cars match its price, but even fewer match its level of sophistication.

16. W Motors Lykan Hypersport: $3.4 million

This car became quite notorious when it was seen skyscraper-hopping in Fast and Furious 7, but the Lykan Hypersport is a notorious exotic car in itself. Having doors that are somehow both suicide and scissor doors, holographic interior display, and literal diamonds in the headlights, W Motors didn’t even need a movie to get people talking about the Lykan.

15. Pagani Huayra Roadster BC: $3.5 million

It is meant to be the last Pagani Huayra, and that’s no surprise because it’s a car fit for a grand finale. Only 40 examples exist, and they are as gorgeous as they are powerful. A bright silver, black, and red color scheme with tan leather seats and a distinctive wood shift knob give the car the elegant, sporty look that only the best in the automotive world can offer, and a removable carbon-fiber hardtop that makes the Roadster only 66 pounds heavier than it’s coupe counterpart adds bite to the Huayra BC Roadster’s bark, doing the model justice as it bows out.

14. Lamborghini Sian: $3.6 million

The Sian is Lamborghini’s most bold and innovative effort yet, with a hybrid system that uses lithium-ion supercapacitors to its advantage, making for a hybrid that doesn’t compromise weight for immense power. Drivers can expect 819 horsepower, 2.8 seconds to reach 60 mph, and a top speed of over 220 mph. And with design inspiration coming from the Countach, even at a glance, the Sian is unmistakably iconic.

13. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ and Chiron Super Sport: $3.9 million
