Koenigsegg Agera S belongs to the exclusive 1,000-hp-plus club, with a twin-turbo V-8 that generates 1,030 hp. That flings the car from zero to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, or zero to around 188 mph in 22.7 seconds – that is, if you’re on a racetrack or if you own your own highway.It’s expected to sell for around $2,850,000.

Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Engine: 1,244 hp, 7.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8
0-60mph: 2.7 seconds
Price: $1.2 million

Hennessey Venom GT set a Guinness World Book-record time of 13.63 seconds from zero to 300 kph, or 186 mph, in January 2013. The company said in December 2013 that it had sold only 11 Venom GTs to clients around the world (only five in the United States). The company plans to build a total of only 29 all told.

5) Porsche 918 Spyder

Hennessey Venom GT

Country of Origin: Germany
Engine: 887 hp (total output), 4.6-liter V-8 with two electric motors
0-62 mph: 2.5 seconds
Starting price: $845,000

Besides the hybrid gasoline-electric powertrain, other innovations include rear-wheel steering, where the rear wheels adjust slightly in turns. It can go up to 19 miles on battery power alone. By itself, the V-8 gasoline engine produces 608 hp. Like many race cars, the Porsche 918 Spyder is largely built of lightweight but strong carbon fiber-reinforced polymer. The lightweight, even more racing-oriented Weissach Package of options boosts the sticker price to $929,000.

6) Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase

Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase

 

Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Engine: 453-hp, 6.75-liter V-12
0-60 mph: 5.8 seconds
Starting price: $298,900

The Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase model is about nine inches longer than the standard-wheelbase. That extra room is most noticeable in the back seat, where the owner presumably will spend a lot of his or her time being driven around. The brand image is old-fashioned but Rolls-Royce’s current cars have high-tech features like cameras at five locations to watch out for obstacles when parking, and to project the predicted path on a screen when reversing.

7) Ferrari F12berlinetta

Ferrari F12berlinetta

 

Country of Origin: Italy
Engine: 740-hp, 6.3-liter, V-12
0-62 mph: 3.1 seconds

8) Bentley Mulsanne

Bentley Mulsanne

 

Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Engine: 505-hp, 6.75-liter, twin-turbo V-8
0-60 mph: 5.1 seconds
Starting price: $298,900

Bentley calls the Bentley Mulsanne “the grandest of grand tourers.” The interior has features like wood veneers and leather upholstery made from “blemish-free” hides, from herds raised in cooler climates where there are fewer insects. Having said that, performance is pretty amazing, considering it weighs close to 6,000 pounds.

 

9) Aston Martin Vanquish

 Aston Martin Vanquish

Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Engine: 565-hp, 6.0-liter V-12
0-62 mph (that is, 100 km per hour): 4.1 seconds
Starting price: $279,995

10) Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG Coupe

 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG Coupe

Country of Origin: Germany
Engine: 621-hp, 6.0-liter, bi-turbo V-12
0-60 mph: 4.2 seconds
Starting price: $215,500

The Mercedes-Benz AMG division used to be a separate company that souped up stock Mercedes-Benz models. The engine in the Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG Coupe is a handcrafted V-12. The AMG tradition is that the individual master craftsman who builds each engine puts his signature on it when he’s finished. That’s not to say the end product is some quaint relic. Top speed is 186 mph, not bad for a car that could be used as a family car, unlike a two-seat race car.
