Supercars are incredible works of technological achievement. They are the exemplification of automotive engineering not just as a means of transportation, but as an art. Poured over by their designers, manufacturing teams, and – eventually – their owners, they are absolute marvels of the mechanical. Hypercars, however, are in another world entirely. They’re sort of like the vehicle equivalent of cranking everything up to 11 – performance, styling, luxury, price… You get the picture. They’re all taken to the nth degree.
But, even amongst the elite of the elite, there are still some that are better than others. And while that might seem a lot like comparing diamonds to other slightly more perfect diamonds, the fact remains. So, without further ado, we’ve gathered together this list of the world’s best hypercars. So, if you’ve got an absurdly large amount of spending cash, the following automobiles are available now (or will be soon) for purchase. If you don’t, they’re still really nice to look at.
ASTON MARTIN VALKYRIE
Usually, when a highly lauded car brand and an F1 racing team get together, it’s to produce precious few track cars for an upcoming race season. And that’s not entirely dissimilar to what happened when Aston Martin and the Red Bull Racing teamed up to create the Valkyrie. The difference: while they’ve got their track versions, they’re also creating a limited run of street-legal versions that will be available for sale. This gorgeous vehicle, which is named after the winged female warriors of Norse myth, will feature a Rimac-built Kinetic Energy Recovery System, is said to have an unheard of 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, will be made almost entirely out of carbon fiber, and will retail for somewhere in the $3 million range.
Engine: Naturally Aspirated Cosworth 6.5-liter V12
Horsepower: ~1,000 HP
Highlights: All Carbon Fiber Structure, 1:1 Power To Weight Ratio
