Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

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.

  • BMW i8

    The BMW i8 ($136,000) provides an emphatic counterpoint to everyone out there who says a hybrid can't possibly be a fun car to drive — like it or not, this is the future. At its heart is a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, capable of generating 231 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. That power is delivered to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. Up front an electric engine generates additional horsepower and torque, boosting the figures to 362 and 320 respectively. It'll get up to 62 mph in just 4.4 seconds, all while maintaining an average fuel economy of 94 mpg (which is nothing short of unbelievable). Oh, and the swan-winged coupe is absolutely gorgeous, but we didn't have to tell you that.

  • Galpin Ford GTR1

    As if the Ford GT wasn't incredible enough off the factory line, the guys at Galpin Auto Sports went and made it into a truly-modern super car, the Galpin Ford GTR1 ($1,024,000). Based on the GT's original chassis, the GTR1 has been completely reworked, from the restyled carbon fiber body, to the obscenely-powerful engine. The mid-mounted 5.4-liter V8 engine sports twin turbochargers, and an output of 1,024 horsepower and 739 lb-ft of torque — all that power mixed with a weight of only 3,000 pounds means it can hit over 225 mph, 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, and 100 mph in 6.8 seconds. A nearly-perfect weight distribution of 51/49 and carbon ceramic brakes help it handle as well as it moves, and a limited run of only six cars make it as exclusive as it is fast.
