the Lamborghini Reventón was debuted in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. If you would like to own this beautiful car be prepared to pony up some serious dough, the asking price started at $1.61 million dollars. Considering that they only made 21 of them the price makes a little more sense.

The Aston Martin One-77 was revealed in 2009, since then they have made 77 of the cars. The price for one of these examples of fine British styling is $1.8 million dollars. It looks fantastic, and I’m sure that it drives like a dream, but that’s a whole lot of cash.

The Koenigsegg One:1 gets its name from the fact that its power to weight ratio is 1:1. The people at Koenigsegg are using this to refer to their car as the “Worlds first Megacar”. All of this adds up to a price tag of $2 million dollars, quite a hefty sum of money.

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse was inspired by the Bugatti Type 37A. This auto will blow your hair back, the top speed is around 260-265 mph. If you would like to own one be ready to drop down at least $2.2 million dollars, hopefully it’s worth it.

The Lamborghini Veneno was first unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motorshow. Since its announcement, the fine people at Lamborghini have said that they will be making a total of four Venenos. The car is going for the small fee of $4.5 million dollars, that may seem like a lot but just wait til your first car insurance bill.

The 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO is considered by many to be one of the best cars in existence. Considering that one recently went for $52 million dollars at an auction, it better be that good. When the car was initially released in 1963 the asking price was $18,000, and you had to be personally approved by Enzo Ferrari.
