It is a modern interpretation of the classic supercar
While wealthy petrolheads have a love for supercars, rare supercars take motoring to another level.
They are high performing, boasting loud engines and top speeds of more than 200 mph.
But one difference among rare supercars is exclusivity.
In many cases, just a few hundred vehicles or even less are produced and sell out almost immediately.
Special editions of normal production supercars or one-off models are manufactured and sold to just a handful of buyers.
Due to their exclusivity, many of the supercars are very expensive, with some costing over a million pounds.
Nevertheless, those with deep enough pockets are more than willing to splash the cash.
Here are 10 expensive rare supercars you must check out.
Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta
The Ferrari LaFerrari is a spectacular supercar, boasting a top speed of 218 mph.
But the Italian manufacturer goes one step further with the Aperta, a special version for some of the most esteemed customers.
Unsurprisingly, it is very expensive, costing £1.5 million.
The reason behind the price is that Ferrari worked extremely hard to turn a seamlessly engineered coupe into a roadster while keeping the same performance.
The hefty price is also down to it being a very rare supercar, with just 210 built.
Nevertheless, all units were sold to customers via an invitation.
Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4
Another very expensive supercar you wish you could buy is the Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4.
It is a modern interpretation of the classic supercar and its unveiling excited collectors as well as fans of the original.
This new Countach may be a hybrid but does not hold back on the power.
It produces 803 bhp and has a top speed of 220 mph.
Despite only 112 being made, all were sold less than a week after being unveiled.
The lucky 112 buyers had to fork out £1.9 million and if another limited edition Lamborghini is unveiled in the future, expect it to be even more expensive.
One supercar that is bound to stand out wherever you go is the Bugatti Chiron.
The Chiron is the third instalment in Bugatti’s array of performance models, replacing the iconic Veyron.
As it is a Bugatti, it is no surprise that it is built for speed, with the standard version reaching a top speed of 261 mph.
However, the Chiron SuperSport may be the fastest production car ever built as it is believed to have reached 300 mph in testing.
This is thanks to its giant quad-turbo W16 engine and incredible aerodynamic properties.
It also looks like nothing else but this uniqueness means it is very pricey, costing £2.5 million.
Ferrari F60 America
The Ferrari F60 America is based on the F12 Berlinetta and it was built to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Ferrari’s operations in North America.
It has a naturally-aspirated 730bhp V12 engine, giving it a top speed of 210 mph.
This special edition has a distinct look. This includes sculpted fenders and rear arches behind the driver, as well as the stunning blue paint job.
The F60 is completely unique and very expensive, costing around £1.9 million.
But don’t expect to see one on the roads as only 10 units of this rare supercar were built.
Koenigsegg is already an exclusive supercar manufacturer and the Jesko is its most powerful model.
This hypercar produces up to 1,600 bhp thanks to a 5-litre twin-turbo V8 engine.
Two versions of the Jesko are available: Attack or Absolut.
The Absolut is claimed to be the fastest production car, with a top speed of more than 300 mph.
Other features include electronically adjustable seats and Apple CarPlay.
At £2.3 million, the Jesko is also Koenigsegg’s most expensive car.
The rare supercar is limited to 125 units but wealthy car collectors are more than willing to splash the cash.
Mercedes-AMG Project One
The Mercedes-AMG Project One is an attention-grabbing hypercar that brings Formula 1 hybrid technology directly from the race track to the road.
It was first announced in 2017 and now in 2022, it finally looks like it will hit the roads.
The Project One will have over 1,200 bhp and a top speed of over 200 mph.
But it is not cheap as it has a £2 million price tag.
Nevertheless, wealthy petrolheads have quickly snapped up all 275 units.
This is a rare supercar that is set to showcase the future of high-performance motoring.
W Motors Lykan Hypersport
Dubai-based W Motors first attracted a lot of attention in 2013 when the Lykan Hypersport was announced.
It gained mainstream attention in Fast and Furious 7, where it was seen hopping across skyscrapers.
It has a top speed of 245 mph but that comes with a hefty price.
The Lykan Hypersport is around £2.6 million but the cost includes lavish features.
This includes titanium LED headlights with 440 15-carat diamonds embedded. But buyers had a selection of rubies, yellow diamonds and sapphires to be integrated based on the car’s paint job.
The Lykan also has a holographic display in the centre console.
As a result, it is a very rare supercar with just seven vehicles produced.
The Bentley Bacalar is not a conventional supercar as it is much larger and heavier than other supercars.
Nevertheless, it delivers a lot of power. It has a turbocharged 6-litre W12 engine that produces 650 bhp.
It also has an opulent design that is bound to grab attention.
But all this does not come cheap as the Bacalar costs £1.46 million.
It is also very rare, with just 12 Bacalars produced.
While it is expensive, all 12 of them have been sold.
The McLaren Elva is one of the best looking models in the British carmaker’s storied legacy.
It has a distinctive look as it does not have a roof or windscreen, although a version with a windscreen has been released.
But it does not shy away from the performance.
The Elva produces 804 bhp thanks to its twin-turbo 4-litre V8.
However, it is a rare supercar. McLaren originally announced just 399 units but the company later dropped that to just 249 units.
For those who were lucky enough to get their hands on one, they had to pay £1.3 million.
Bugatti La Voiture Noire
The Bugatti La Voiture Noire may be the most exclusive supercar, with just one ever made.
It pays tribute to Jean Bugatti’s Type 57 Atlantic, which mysteriously disappeared from a train travelling between the company’s Molsheim factory and Bordeaux in 1940.
Were it to be found, it would likely be the most valuable car ever. Just four Atlantics were built and Ralph Lauren, who owns one of the two survivors, reportedly turned down an offer of £75 million for his.
La Voiture Noire is based on the Chiron, meaning that they rival each other when it comes to performance.
But when it comes to aesthetics, the La Voiture Noire is in a league of its own as it is a piece of automotive haute couture.
Only one unit has been produced but the buyer had to fork out a staggering £11 million.
There may be expensive supercars but it is the rare ones that will attract the most attention.
Not only are they fast but they look very extravagant.
While they cost a lot more than regular production supercars, the wealthy are more than willing to part with some cash in order to get their hands on an exclusive motor.
