Top 10 Hottest Million Dollar Street-Legal Cars

Photo Credit
I was doing a little comparison shopping recently, and found out there are quite a few million-dollar (and some just under that price tag) cars that are street legal and available on the market today. Of course, which ones are the most expensive will depend on the model and package you choose.

 However, in case you’ve been saving your pennies and want to begin window shopping, here are the top 10 hottest million dollar street-legal cars for you to consider. We compiled this list from several sources including Rides magazine, Forbes, and TheSuperCars.org.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport
 Whether you choose a convertible or a hard top, here is a “high-performing elite supercar” built for luxury as well as performance. However, as one of the most expensive cars available (think $2.5 million), be prepared to drop a chunk of change if you want to park one in your garage.

Koenigsegg Agera R
  No, that’s not a swear word. It’s a “lightweight, aero-dynamic Swedish hypercar” with a 1,200 horsepower engine and a hefty price tag. Can you say $2.1 million? According to the Swedish automaker, the Agera R clocks in around 200 mph in just 17.68 seconds.

Koenigsegg Trevita
 This is the slightly more expensive sibling of the Agera (at $2.21 million) with a unique carbon diamond-weave pattern in the body that reportedly “sparkles like millions of silvery white diamonds” when sunlight hits it. Unfortunately, there were only three made.

Aston Martin One-77
 James Bond would be proud of this Aston Martin two-door coupe, with its “700+ horsepower engine and hand-rolled aluminum body panels.” Keep in mind that the 77 in the name is there for a reason. The company built a limited number of these beauties. Last count there were only about 10 left. So if you’ve got $1.87 million burning a hole in your pocket, you better hurry and pick one up.

Zenvo ST1
 You may not even have heard of this expensive supercar. It’s Danish and only arrived in the U.S. last year. In the states, it’s called ST1-50S and was limited to three. There’s a good chance they’ve all been sold, despite the $1.8 million price tag.

Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster
 If you prefer something a bit outrageous, this roadster may pique your interest. With its V12 7.L engine and red racing stripe, it has a hefty $1.8 million price tag. Unfortunately, it was produced in a limited run of five.

Pagani Zonda F Roadster
 A less expensive (only $1.4 million) car than the Cinque, the F Roadster comes from a long line of expensive sports cars, but it has its own unique qualities, like a folding roof and specially designed roll bars. And since 25 were made, you’re more likely to be able to get your hands on one.

Lamborghini Reventon
 Coupe or roadster? It’s so hard to choose. But as Lamborghini’s most expensive car to date, the 211 mph hyper-car may just be your dream ride. That is, if you have $1.4 million to spend.

Maybach Laundalet
 If you are more interested in comfort than speed, the Laundalet has been called “majestic” and a “yacht on wheels.” One of the most unique features of this luxurious car is the roof. It can be opened fully at the rear, while the chauffeur's compartment remains completely closed. Currently selling for around $1.4 million.

Pagani Huayra
 If you’ve reviewed your options and price is top on your list of considerations, here is the least expensive of these amazing cars. The Huayra from Italy has a 700 horsepower Mercedes-Benz-made V12 and a price tag of only $1.3 million.

 So there they are, some of the highest priced cars around. They may not be on the top of your shopping list, but they’re fun to look at, whether you have a cool million to spend on a hot car or not.
