Who doesn't love luxury sports cars? Since the first of their kind was rolled out from the manufacturing lines, these spectacular vehicles have always been associated with wealth, success and an elevated social status.
Although the overwhelming majority of them are owned by men, 93% in the case of the Lamborghini, the fact is that regardless of whether you're a man or a woman, there's something about the sleek aesthetics of a sports car body that catches the eye. This is not even factoring in the thrill you feel when you hear the power of the engines revving.
Here is a list of the world’s fastest, most luxurious, and most expensive sports cars, please read on!
1. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, $ 4.8 million
— Koenigsegg Official (@koenigsegg) 2 July 2015
This car has the best so-called ‘chick magnet’ price tag. As of 2016 this is officially the most expensive car in the world. One of the reasons for the price may be that the interior of this supercar is literally covered with diamonds. The ride is powered by a 4.8-liter, double supercharged V8 engine, making this also one of the fastest cars on the planet.
2. Lamborghini Veneno, $ 4.5 million
Did you miss @thesupertrofeo race weekend? There was a special guest in Paul Ricard: the astonishing Veneno Roadster. #Lamborghini #Veneno #SuperTrofeo #awesome #nofilter Lamborghiniさん(@lamborghini)が投稿した写真 - 2015 6月 22 6:56午前 PDT
This supercar has a stronger ‘sports’ character than the CCXR Trevita. But obviously it has to be on the list, because its hefty price tag of $ 4.5 million puts it comfortably in second place on the luxury sports car list. With a futuristic design, it not only looks beautiful, but its speeds are virtually unbeatable.
3. Lykan Hypersport, $ 3.4 million

Lykan Hypersport hails from Dubai, and has even made a guest appearance in the Fast and the Furious 7 movie. It has the same appealing looks as the Veneno, but with the addition of scissor doors, thus exquisitely combining luxury and aesthetics.
The state of the art interior boasts an impressive display and functionality, controlled by a central screen evocative of the Star Ship Enterprise.
The engine is a 3.7-liter twin turbo beast revving up 770 hp, and able to accelerate the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds.
4. Bugatti Veyron Limited Edition, $ 3.4 million

No fastest sports car list would be complete without mention of the time-honored Bugatti, and the Veyron is indeed a supercar. Its sexy curvy lines are the perfect mix of classy and sporty. Bugatti's designers have created a machine capable of maxing over 200 mph, with an engine up to a staggering 1200 hp. Now that is horsepower – or should we say auto power?
5. Pagani Huayra BC, $ 2.6 million

This megacar shares some of the futuristic looks of the Veneno. Made of carbon fiber, the Pagani has just recently received a face lift. The engine boasts a mere 789 hp.
6. Ferrari F60 America, $ 2.5 million

This well-known vintage favorite among the mega rich does not look futuristic. The latest Ferrari F60 America, named to pay tribute to 60 years of sales in the US, is strongly reminiscent in appearance of the classic Berlinetta. However, clearly performance is more than up-to-scratch. The engine is a 6.2 liter V12, and delivers 740 hp which translate to a top speed of 210 mph. If that is not enough, the car reaches 60 mph in 3.1 seconds.
7. Bugatti Chiron, $ 2.5 million

A close relative of the Bugatti Veyron, the Bugatti Chiron has pushed performance to another level. It retains many of the same design principles as its predecessor, but its engine boasts 1500 hp, while acceleration is outstanding with 0-60 mph being reached in just 2.5 seconds. Top speeds are also in line with the manufacturer's fame, reaching a staggering 260 mph.
8. Aston Martin One-77, $ 1.85 million
The unparalleled beauty of One-77 has been captured in this #astonmartinlive shot by @daniel_j_cramphorn #astonmartin #one77 #luxury #cars Aston Martinさん(@astonmartinlagonda)が投稿した写真 - 2015 6月 11 4:21午前 PDT
The external appearance of the Aston Martin One-77 is more prosaic, which partly accounts for its lower price tag. Nevertheless, its looks bely the fact that this luxury car is capable of attaining a max speed of 220 mph, and accelerate to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. It is clearly no ordinary luxury car.
9. Koenigsegg Agera R, $ 1.6 million
Koenigsegg Agera R "The ride comfort is exceptional. Beautifully absorbent and calm. The damping is sophisticated and the car does not roll too much in turns The steering has uncommon delicacy and has clearly been expertly tuned to the chassis. I am impressed” The Agera is beautifully constructed and in possession of a chassis that shows understanding of how a car should behave on the road” - EVO Magazine Photo: David Shepherd / Evo Magazine Official Koenigseggさん(@koenigseggautomotive)が投稿した写真 - 2015 1月 14 2:15午前 PST
This is another supercar bearing the signature of Koenigsegg, but with a more modest price tag attached. The Agera R has a unique design feature, however. All of them have the scissor doors and reach a maximum speed of 235 mph. However, the company has programmed the Agera’s electronics system to reach an even higher top speed of 270 mph, but this is only attainable by signing a special agreement with the manufacture to electronically ‘unlock the speed’!
10. McLaren P1, $ 1.35 million

Last on the list, for a mere $1.0 million plus some loose change, is the McLaren P1. Carrying a V8 turbocharged motor, it is able to reach 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds, while it can run at a maximum speed of 217 mph, as soon as all its 900 hp are unleashed.
So those are the price tags – but some would say they are actually worth a lot more!
