Underneath the skin the 2014 SRT Viper GTS Anodized Carbon Edition ($TBA) is still the same old SRT Viper GTS — but don't get it wrong, we're not complaining — you'd never catch us whining about a naturally-aspirated all-aluminum 8.4-liter V10 rated at 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. No, what really makes it special are the unique aesthetic details given to this edition (limited to just 50 units). They've been dressed in a never-before-seen metallic matte color unique to this all-American supercar. The Viper also gets orange-painted brake calipers, carbon fiber accents inside and out, orange interior details, and Nappa leather and Alcantara seats.
Say what you will about the bizarre styling of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster ($4.5 million) — it's a Lamborghini after all — but we challenge you to find a single negative thing to say about the 750 horsepower 6.5-liter V12 around back. This small-batch exotic (based on the slightly less expensive Veneno coupe) is limited to just nine cars, so chances are you won't run into too many out on the road. It's built to be lightweight and highly aerodynamic, with carbon fiber construction and a range of angular surfaces to control airflow. Its massive engine pushes it up to a staggering 220 miles per hour, while it reaches 62 in only 2.9 seconds. So, if you do see one it'll probably be moving too fast to give you a chance at criticizing its looks.
As the oldest son of Bugatti's founder, Jean Bugatti probably could have gotten by on his last name alone — but instead, he designed one of the most exclusive, coveted cars known: the Type 57SC Atlantic. Drawing inspiration from his personal Type 57SC (referred to as La Voiture Noire), and made to recognize Jean Bugatti's professional achievements, the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse Jean Bugatti Edition ($3 million) is something to behold in all black carbon fiber. This edition is limited to just three models, sports an incredible 1,200 horsepower, and features eye-popping details like a platinum grill surround and badges, a silhouette of the 57SC in the door inserts, a rosewood shifter, and twin five-spoke wheels.
If you're concerned that your Ferrari 458 isn't quite powerful enough — we feel your pain — fret not, the Hennessey HPE700 Twin Turbo Ferrari 458 ($293,000) is here to give you a few more of those much-needed ponies (170 more, to be exact). The heart of this upgrade, sitting beneath custom-made carbon-fiber covers, are two low-inertia, ball-bearing turbochargers operating at a maximum seven psi of boost, and producing a staggering total of 738 hp and 532 lb-ft of torque. They also throw in professional installation, dyno tuning, road testing, an air-to-water intercooler system, new lines, pipes, and Hennessey exterior badging so everyone knows what you're pushing.
When you need a ride that's as race-ready as it is street-legal, then the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse ($TBA) is the only choice. With a 570-horsepower V10 engine, this supercar rockets to 104 mph in just 10.4 seconds, and tops out at an incredible 199 mph. A carbon fiber rear wing produces plenty of downforce to keep it glued to the ground, while carbon-ceramic brakes help stop its minimal 2,954 pounds. The interior — which speaks to its racing heritage — is decked out in carbon fiber and Alcantara, for a refined, yet minimalist aesthetic.
It's not just a 1950s Ferrari — it's a one-of-a-kind 1950s Ferrari. And you can expect this 1953 Ferrari 250 Europa Coupe Vignale ($TBA; auction) to fetch a one-of-a-kind price when it's put up at the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction in August. Designed by Giovanni Michelotti for Vignale, this coach built car recently underwent a painstaking restoration, and remains correct in every detail, down to its tobacco and burnt sienna livery. Produced at the very beginning of Ferrari's legendary 250 model range, it'd be a crown jewel of any aficionado's collection.
As if driving a normal Aventador wasn't exclusive enough, now you can up your supercar cred by placing an order for the Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50th Anniversary Edition ($TBA). Limited to just 200 units — 100 coupes and 100 roadsters — this is more than just a fancy paint job, with horsepower increased to 720 and a new performance-oriented front and rear end design that includes larger front air intakes and splitter, small side flaps, and an all-new rear end with a larger diffuser and new meshwork that improves ventilation. The result is a 50% increase in aerodynamic efficiency, a 0-62 time of just 2.9 seconds, and a top speed of 217 mph.
Been kicking yourself ever since you missed out on the chance to own a brand new Enzo? Here's your chance to make up for it. The awkwardly-named Ferrari LaFerrari ($TBA) is the company's new limited-series flagship, offering F1-level technology in a stunning road-legal package. Apart from the unique, instant-classic looks, it features a new HY-KERS drivetrain system that pairs a 789hp, 6.3L V12 to a 160hp electric motor and a 7-speed DCT gearbox for a total of 949hp, a 0-62 time of under three seconds, a 0-124 time of under seven seconds, and a top speed of 205 mph. Helping things along is the highest degree of aerodynamic efficiency ever achieved with any road car, a chassis made from no less than four different types of hand-laminated carbon fiber to achieve an ideal 41/59 weight distribution, and an advanced Brembo braking system to get the thing stopped. Let's hope you were already on the waiting list at your local dealer, as only 499 are being built.
If Lambo's most recent designs have been a bit too conservative for your taste, say hello to the Lamborghini Veneno ($4.6 million). Created for the supercar maker's 50th anniversary, it's reportedly based on the Aventador platform, with a 740 horsepower 6.5 liter V12, a seven-speed transmission, a top speed of 220 mph, and a 0-62 time under three seconds. Outside, however, it's totally new, with a hyper-aggressive design that has more fins, flaps, and wings than a fighter jet. The only problem, apart from the price? Only three are being made, and they're all already accounted for.
If you've been longing for an open-air Aventador but didn't want to go Bam and Billy Idol-style on the roof of the coupe, your ride has arrived. The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster (€300,000; roughly $380,000) adds a two-piece removable carbon fiber roof to the already lust-worthy racer, while retaining the best features from the coupe. Features like a seven-speed gearbox, a 6.5L V12 pumping out 700hp, a 0-62 time of just 3 seconds, and a top speed of 217 mph.
If we tried to sell you a car that's missing both its roof and its front windshield, you probably wouldn't be too enthusiastic — until we told you where it came from. The Lamborghini Aventador J ($TBA) is a street legal open-air racer, with two small wind deflectors in place of a normal windshield, and other weight-reducing, speed-increasing features like the lack of an audio, navigation, or HVAC system, Forged Composite seats with inserts made from "Carbonskin" — a new carbon fiber fabric — the same 700-hp 6.5-liter V12 as its standard stablemate, and copious use of lightweight materials throughout. Oh, and there's only one in existence — so good luck getting your hands on the keys.
Yes, it's gorgeous — but it's a Ferrari, so you already knew that. What you didn't know is that you're looking at the fastest Ferrari ever built. The Ferrari F12 Berlinetta ($TBA) is powered by a 6262cc V12 pumping out an insane 740 hp, which is enough to propel the Rosso Berlinetta rocket to 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds, hitting 104 in just 8.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 210 mph. Other features — as if they matter — include an all-new spaceframe chassis and body shell made using 12 different kinds of alloys, Active Brake Cooling for keeping those carbon-ceramic brakes in check, the latest version of the magnetorheological suspension control system, and, of course, an F1 dual-clutch transmission. Don't forget to wipe the drool off the screen when you're done.
