The McLaren Senna is a car designed to devour a racetrack, but that can legally be driven on public roads. Aboard this machine, it’s simply impossible to go unnoticed. Its name pays tribute to the late, great Ayrton Senna, a three-time F1 World Champion with the McLaren racing team. The mid-mounted, twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 produces 789 horsepower (800 PS) and 590 pound-feet of torque, allowing the Senna to blast from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 340 km/h. This car is valued at $1.5 Million dollars.
Veritable work of art on wheels, the Huayra is the purest expression of good taste and precision craftsmanship. Carbon fibre body, titanium structure, aluminum mechanical components; the automaker didn’t pull any punches when it comes to using rare materials in order to make the Huayra as light as possible. Inside the sumptuous cockpit, we find breathtaking build quality, an elegant design and an unrivalled level of fit and finish. The Pagani Huayra boasts a twin-turbo, 6.0-litre V12 engine, assembled by hand and provided by Mercedes-AMG, which produces 753 horsepower (764 PS) and 738 pound-feet of torque. This car is valued at $4.5 Million dollars.
