There are cars, and there are supercars, and then there are supercars that are so unique that you’ll probably never see them in the photos. Filled with technology and elegance alike, these machines are so beautiful and expensive that they need to be kept safe, much like Fast and Furious 7. We’re giving you a list of 5 rare supercars that will make you feel special if you’ve ever spotted one in your flesh all your life.
After making the world go mad with the Sesto Elemento, Lamborghini wanted to push the craziness a little higher with the Lamborghini Veneno, based on the beast called Aventador. What makes the Veneno much crazier than its ancestor is that the 6.5-liter V12 engine produced 50 horsepower more than the Aventador, increasing the total power output to 740 bhp. Its most striking aspect, however, is the body with which its highly sculpted front end functions as a massive wing, allowing the air channel into a larger diffuser on the rear.
How many of these are in the world? 6 – 3 coupes, 3 roadsters.
Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
Designed particularly for the racetrack, the Sesto Elemento had people who were in awe when Lamborghini took the wraps away from this beauty. Featuring a carbon-fibre frame, body, drive shaft and carbon-fibre suspension parts, Sesto Elemento is also the lightest Lamborghini made at 999 kg.
This car features a Gallardo tweaked engine that numbs the mind with a 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 562 bhp, with very little to weight.
How many of these are in the world? 20.
Ferrari FXX supercars
The FXX was a track-only car based on Enzo. The 6.0-litre V12 engine, which entered it was extended to 6.3 litres, which produced 800bhp. This car was not road legal, but it could also be fitted with slick tyres—ideal for use on the race track, making it wickedly hard.
The only problem with the FXX was that since it was a track-only vehicle, and buyers had to spend over two million pounds for one they could drive it ONLY if Ferrari allowed them to take part in specially arranged track-day activities.

McLaren F1 LM supercars
The McLaren is one of the world’s best supercars. But if that’s not what the taste buds desire, then McLaren will still sell the F1 LM, built on the iconic F1 GTR race car. How was it different than the F1? To begin with, it had the creature comforts to make it a supercar that the F1 was stripped of and it stood on a much stiffer suspension setup. What also improved the aerodynamic capabilities of this F1 vehicle is the front splitter, rear diffuser, and the massive rear wing of the GTR.
Lykan Hypersport is the first car in the Middle East and the third most luxurious car in the world behind Lamborghini Veneno and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Many will now recall this car as one Vin Diesel was going through three buildings in the Fast and Furious 7 movies.
The Lykan Hypersport comes with a flat-six 3.7-litre turbo engine that produces a hard hitting 740 bhp and a torque of 960 Nm with a claimed acceleration time of 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. It is not these numbers that make Hypersport one of the most expensive and unusual vehicles, but the fact that it features 420 diamonds in its headlight, which is made of titanium lenses, is what sets this high price tag. If diamonds aren’t what you’re searching for, you can still pick between rubies and sapphires to suit your car; after all it’s the Middle East, you can get as comfortable as you want.
