When Buggati’s Veyron was originally released in 2005, it changed the automotive industry forever. Hell, it basically created the hypercar category. So you can imagine the pressure the brand probably felt when it came time to conjure up a successor. The Chiron is what they came up with. Using an 8-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine just like the Veyron, this vehicle was equipped with a few notable upgrades – including direct injection and larger, better turbos. The result is a car that can go from 0-62 in less than 2.5 seconds, hits 124 in less than 6.5, and makes it all the way up to 186 in less than 13.6 – quicker than the Veyron. And that’s especially impressive when you consider that the Chiron is actually heavier than its older counterpart. But, that also comes with a price hike to the tune of $2.65 million.

When a brand is so confident in their hypercar that they name it after the brand itself, you should be expecting something extremely special. And that’s exactly what we have in Ferrari’s LaFerrari. This gorgeous vehicle is unlike anything the legendary prancing horse brand has released before, thanks in part to the combination of a 6262cc V12 engine and a 120kW electric motor. That’s right – this hypercar is a hybrid. And what’s really special about the introduction of that updated technology is that it isn’t relegated to just their top-end model. No, the brand plans on having it trickle down into all their models, making their vehicles a good deal more environmentally friendlythan they would be otherwise. You’ll have to pay over $1.4 million to get one, but you’ll end up with what can be called one of the brand’s most definitive vehicles.
