10 Bugatti Mistral — $5.0 million

Bugatti has had the privilege to hold the speed record title on a few occasions, the first of which dates back to the 1930s Type 57 Atlantique. The Bugatti Chiron is the current Bugatti hypercar and the basis for many special-edition variants. The last of those is the $5.0 million Bugatti Mistral. The company planned only 99 examples of the last Bugatti to feature the 8.0-liter, quad-turbo, W-16. In this case, output is rated at 1,577 horsepower (1,177 kilowatts) and 1,180 pound-feet (1,600 Nm).

Introduced in 2020, the Pagani Huayra Imola is the closest road-going version to the Huayra R. Under the radically-styled, carbon-fiber body resides a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo AMG V-12 with 827 horsepower (616 kilowatts) and 811 pound-feet (1,100 Nm). At 2,305 pounds (1,050 kg), it is as light as the track-only Huayra R. The car is named after the famous Italian racetrack, Imola. Just five production versions and one prototype were built, each costing $5.4 million.

8th Bugatti Divo — $5.8 million

The Bugatti Divo came out in 2019 as a tribute to French racing driver, Albert Divo, who raced for Bugatti in the 1920s, winning the Targa Florio. The Divo was based on the Chiron but featured design elements inspired by the Type 57SC Atlantic. It was 77 pounds (35 kg) lighter, and the body was tweaked for better aerodynamics and higher grip. This resulted in better lateral acceleration and made the Divo 8.0 seconds quicker than the Chiron around the Nardo test track. The W-16 retained the base car’s 1,479 horsepower (1,103 kilowatts) and 1,180 pound-feet (1,600 Nm). Only 40 Bugatti Divo were built, each costing $5.8 million.

7 Pagani Codalunga — $7.4 million

In 2022, Italian carmaker, Pagani, decided to celebrate racing cars of old, like the Porsche 917, by introducing a long-tail version of the Huayra. It’s called the Codalunga (Italian for long tail) and only five units exist, each retailed for $7.4 million. Motivation comes from the familiar, 6.0-liter, twin-turbo AMG V-12. Here, it puts out 840 horsepower (626 kilowatts) and 811 pound-feet (1,100 Nm). As with all Huayra versions, power goes to the rear wheels only through a seven-speed sequential transmission.

6 Maybach Exelero — $8.0 million

The 2004 Maybach Exelero is the most GT-oriented supercar on the list. The car was commissioned by Goodyear subsidiary Fulda to test high-performance tires. The basis for the Exelero was a Maybach 57, which in turn can trace its roots to the W140 S-Class. Power came from a Maybach-built, 5.9-liter, twin-turbo V-12 with 690 horsepower (515 kilowatts) and 752 pound-feet (1,020 Nm). The car was capable of 218 mph (351 km/h). The one-off example made appearances in the German series “Cobra 11” and a Jay-Z music video, to name a few. According to Top Gear, in 2011, rapper Birdman bought the car for $8.0 million.

5 Mercedes CLK GTR — $8.5 million

In 1997, Mercedes and AMG had to homologate a race car for the FIA ​​GT Championship in just 128 days. Miraculously, they managed this feat, and as per FIA’s requirements, 25 road-going models had to be built. The end result was 20 coupes and 5 roadsters of the road-going version. Power came from an M297 V-12 engine, ranging from 6.8 to 7.3 liters, depending on the version, with power ranging from 604 to 711 horsepower (450 to 530 kilowatts) and 539 to 580 pound-feet (731 to 786 Nm). Today, it is estimated that an immaculate example would fetch $8.5 million.

4 Bugatti Centodieci — $9.0 million

In 2022, Bugatti celebrated 110 years of its founding with a Chiron-based model inspired by Romano Artioli’s Bugatti EB110 from 1991. The 1990s models commemorated the 110th anniversary of Ettore Bugatti, hence the 2022 Centodieci’s neo-retro design. Centodieci means 110 in Italian, but only 10 examples were planned by Bugatti, each with a price tag of $9.0 million. The quad-turbo W-16 produces 1,578 horsepower (1,176 kilowatts) and 1,180 pound-feet (1,600 Nm). The 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) is dealt with in 2.3 seconds.

3 Bugatti La Voiture Noire — $13.4 million

The 2021 Bugatti La Voiture Noire is the most expensive Bugatti ever made. The Chiron-based model draws heavy inspiration from Jean Bugatti’s Type 57 SC Atlantic. While the 8.0-liter W-16 is still positioned behind the driver, the car features almost front-engine proportions. Power remains identical to the Chiron, at 1,479 horsepower (1,103 kilowatts) and 1,180 pound-feet (1,600 Nm). Like the 1930s model, it has six tailpipes. While the exquisite, neo-retro styling is enough to command a hefty price tag, what really makes it is the exclusivity. Only one La Voiture Noire exists, and it costs $13.4 million.

2 SP Automotive Chaos — $14.4 million

One of the most expensive and radically-styled supercars, surprisingly, comes from Greece. To call it a supercar or a hypercar is an understatement, as the SP Automotive Chaos is allegedly the first “ultra” car. The car was supposed to be unveiled at the 2021 Geneva Auto Show, but the pandemic ruined a lot of plans. Nevertheless, the Greek high-performance car is said to feature a lot of game-changing engineering decisions and a 4.0-liter V-10 with up to 3,000 horsepower. Figures like a 1.8-second 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) time and a 310 mph (500 km/h) top speed are being quoted for the range-topping version that will cost $14.4 million. A 2,000-horsepower version will also be available for “only” $6.4 million.

1 McLaren F1 — $20.5 million

There can only be one, and it is the founder of the hypercar segment – ​​the McLaren F1. Gordon Murray’s original vision for the ultimate road-going vehicle was born over 20 years ago and to this day, is revered as the greatest high-performance vehicle ever made. It is also holding the record for the fastest, naturally-aspirated car in the world for 20 years and counting. The 6.1-liter, BMW V-12 is good for 618 horsepower (461 kilowatts) and 479 pound-feet (650 Nm). Everything was calculated to perfection, which is why the seemingly underwhelming numbers allowed for a top speed of 242.9 mph (391 km/h). The last time one of the 106 cars was auctioned off, it fetched $20.5 million.
