it does not hold back on the technology.
Although wealthy petrolheads love luxury cars, they tend to have a soft spot for supercars.
Not only do they have lavish features but they are also high performing.
Most supercars boast loud engines and reach speeds of 200 mph and beyond.
On the outside are unique aesthetics that are bound to turn heads.
But they come at a price as a lot of supercars are expensive, with some costing hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Nevertheless, those with deep enough pockets are more than willing to splash the cash.
The likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini are some of the lavish car brands that the wealthy go for.
Here are 10 expensive supercars you can buy.
Lamborghini Huracan Evo
When it comes to expensive supercars, the Lamborghini Huracan Evo is one of the first that comes to mind.
The Huracan Evo boasts a V10, allowing it to reach a top speed of 202 mph.
But it does not hold back on the technology.
It features the Lamborghini Dynamic Vehicle Integration (LDVI) system, which works alongside its all-wheel steering and torque-vectoring systems, to deliver even sharper responses and greater agility.
The Huracan also comes with an 8.4-inch infotainment system.
This supercar costs around £160,000 and while it is not designed for everyday use, it is surprisingly composed.
Porsche 911 GT3
The 911 GT3 is Porsche’s high-performance model and it costs around £140,000.
This may sound expensive, but it is much cheaper than the GT2 RS, which will set you back more than £200,000.
It is powered by a 4.0-litre flat-six engine, producing 503 bhp and reaching 198 mph.
Superb damping means that the ride is smooth, allowing petrolheads to push this car to the limit should they want to take it to the track.
Aston Martin DBS
Aston Martin combines luxury with performance and the DBS showcases that.
This supercar has a twin-turbo V12 engine that produces 715 bhp and reaches a top speed of 211 mph.
Despite its sporty look and performance, the DBS is designed for long drives on scenic routes.
As a result, it is lavishly equipped inside and ensures a smooth ride, but it does not come cheap, costing around £225,000.
For those who prefer the open air, it is recommended to buy the convertible DBS Volante.
No matter the choice, the DBS is a luxurious supercar that comes with a hefty price tag.
The BMW i8 is an eye-catching supercar due to its futuristic design.
But it is also due to the fact that it is a hybrid car.
An electric motor is combined with a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, enabling the i8 to go from 0 to 62mph in 4.4 seconds.
Using both power sources while set to EcoPro, the i8 can achieve a 330-mile total range.
But it is not as fast as other supercars, with the i8’s top speed limited to 155 mph.
It costs around £115,000 and while it is not the most obvious supercar, it is a futuristic one that proves that environmentally friendly hybrids do not need to be boring.
Audi R8 V10 Quattro
At first glance, the new Audi R8 looks the same as the previous one, but there is a range of new technology.
The V10 is high performing, coming in 533 bhp and 602 bhp versions.
There is no manual option but the twin-clutch automatic gearbox offers seamless shifting.
It is more nimble than the Lamborghini Huracan and is just as quick, with a top speed of 200 mph.
The R8 is expensive, with prices starting from £128,000.
But this supercar’s performance speaks for itself as well as its high-quality interior.
Ferrari 812 Superfast
The Ferrari 812 Superfast may be a grand tourer but it is one of the most powerful supercars to be produced by the Italian carmaker.
It has a 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 that generates 789 bhp. In 2018, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.
The result is a car that goes from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 211 mph.
It has a front-mid engine layout to give it a balanced weight distribution which makes it ideal to go around a track or cruising on the open road.
The Superfast prioritises style and performance but the drawback is the high price, starting from £260,000.
However, wealthy petrolheads will not hesitate to buy one.
Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S
The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S is a grand tourer that comes in both coupe and roadster versions.
It combines supercar performance with technology and everyday practicality.
The GT S is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 515 bhp and has a top speed of 193 mph.
Prices start from £138,000 and while it is an expensive supercar, it is highly equipped.
This includes an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, ‘Race Mode’ and ‘Race Start’ mode settings in the AMG Dynamic Select adaptive drivetrain system, AMG Ride Control adaptive suspensive system, an AMG Performance Exhaust System with dynamic flaps and much more.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
Although it is expected to be in its final production year, the Lamborghini Aventador remains one of the flashiest, and most expensive supercars to buy.
The Aventador SVJ is a track-focused version of the Aventador S.
Depending on which version and what extras you prefer, prepare to part with your wallet.
It is one of the fastest models in the impressive line of Lamborghinis. It uses the same 6.5-litre V12 used in previous Aventadors and it has been reworked.
The result is now a massive 770 bhp which means it goes from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds and all the way up to 217 mph.
Featuring a large spoiler and huge air intakes, the SVJ is more suited to the track than busy roads.
Despite appealing to the wealthy, the SVJ is extremely rare as it is limited to just 963 units worldwide including 63 special editions called the “63 Edition”.
Ferrari has moved into the world of electricity and the SF90 is the Italian manufacturer’s first model to feature PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) architecture.
But this does not mean it has cut down on speed.
In fact, it has a top speed of 211 mph, while 0-62 mph takes just 2.5 seconds.
This is due to a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8, three electric motors, and an all-wheel-drive drivetrain that combine to produce 986 bhp.
The standard version is the Stradale while the Spider is ideal for those who prefer a convertible.
But this supercar is not cheap.
It costs £390,000 which may sound like a lot but this Ferrari is a bargain considering its hypercar performance levels.
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.
While there are a plethora of expensive cars, undoubtedly the most exciting are supercars.
They look extravagant and boast high speeds.
And while they cost a lot, the wealthy are more than willing to part with some cash to get their hands on them and enjoy on the roads.
