7. BUGHATTI CHIRON
The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined two-seated sports car developed and manufactured in Molsheim, France, by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron. The Chiron was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1, 2016. The car is named after the Monegasque driver Louis Chiron.
The main carryover piece from the Veyron is the 8-litre W16 quad-turbocharged engine, though it is heavily updated. The Chiron has 1,103 kW (1,500 PS; 1,479 bhp) of power and 1,600 N•m (1,180 lb•ft) of torque starting from 2000 rpm. Like its predecessor, the Veyron, it has a carbon fibre body structure, independent suspension and a Haldex AWD system. The carbon fibre body has a stiffness of 50,000 Nm per degree.
The Chiron can accelerate from 0–97 km/h (60 mph) in 2.5 seconds according to the manufacturer, 0–200 km/h (120 mph) in 6.5 seconds and 0–300 km/h (190 mph) in 13.6 seconds. The Chiron’s top speed is electronically limited to 420 km/h (261 mph) for safety reasons. The` anticipated full top speed of the Bugatti Chiron is believed to be around 463 km/h (288 mph). Its predecessor (the Bugatti Veyron SS) makes almost 220 kW (300 bhp) less than the new Chiron.
The first 200 Chirons were sold before the first delivery of the car. The base price is €2,400,000 ($2,700,000 at the August 2016 exchange rate), and buyers are required to place a €200,000 ($226,000 at the August 2016 exchange rate) deposit on the car before retrieving it.
6. PAGANI HUAYRA BC
The Pagani Huayra (Italian pronunciation: wai̯ra) is an Italian mid-engined sports car produced by Pagani. Succeeding the company’s previous offering, the Zonda, it had a base price of €850,000. It is named after Huayra-tata, a Quechua wind god.The Huayra was named “The Hypercar of the Year 2012” by Top Gear magazine and received a very positive review when tested by Richard Hammond on Top Gear.
The Huayra was previously the fastest road car to go around the Top Gear Test Track, setting a time of 1:13.8, beating the previous record of 1:15.1 set by the Ariel Atom V8 in January 2011, and also placed above other hypercars such as the Aston Martin Vulcan, Bugatti Veyron 16.4, Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, Ferrari Enzo Ferrari, Koenigsegg CCX, Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, and Pagani Zonda F.
It is also unofficially faster around the track than the Ferrari LaFerrari. However, in June 2016, the Huayra was beaten by the McLaren 675LT that set a record of 1:13.7.
On February 11, 2015 it was reported that the Pagani Huayra has been sold out. The Huayra was limited to just 100 units as part of Pagani’s agreement with engine supplier Mercedes-AMG.
An even more extreme version called the Huayra BC model debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016. The Huayra BC is named after the late Benny Caiola, a friend of Horacio Pagani, and the first Pagani customer.
The Huayra BC has an improved version of the standard Huayra’s 6.0 liter V12, twin turbocharged AMG engine, producing 750 PS (550 kW; 740 hp) as well as 1,100 N•m (810 lb•ft) of torque. The dry weight is reduced 132 kg to just 1,218 kg, thanks to a new type of carbon fiber that Pagani claims is 50% lighter and 20% stronger than regular carbon fiber, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 1.62 kg (3.57 lb) per horsepower.
Pagani have also fitted the Huayra BC with a lighter titanium exhaust system, new aluminum alloy wheels, and a stripped out interior. The tires are Pirelli P Zero Corsas that feature 12 different rubber compounds and the suspension and wishbones are made of aeronautical grade aluminum, known as Avional. The Huayra BC also has a new front bumper with a splitter and winglets, deeper side skirts, and an air diffuser that stretches the entire width of the rear bumper, and a massive rear wing.
All the components are made of carbon fiber, and are add-ons. The Huayra BC also has changes made to all but one of the body panels to maximize downforce and minimize drag. The Huayra BC uses a next-generation 7-speed manual gearbox, and has an electro-hydraulic actuation. Pagani has stuck with a single-clutch gearbox because it weighs 40% less than double-clutch gearboxes.
All 20 units of the €2.1 million Huayra BC coupé have been sold out, and orders are already stacking for the BC roadster.

5. FERRARI PININFARINA SERGIO
Pininfarina Sergio is a concept car first shown during the 83rd Geneva Motor Show (5–17 March 2013) and is a tribute to Sergio Pininfarina, who died 3 July 2012, at the age of 85 years.
The Sergio is a custom roadster in style that Pininfarina used in the designing of the Ferrari 458 Spider, upon which the Sergio concept in turn is based mechanically.
One innovation consists of floats and an aerodynamic headrest attached to the roll cage rather than the body of the seats, becoming almost elements of the exterior more than the interior. In addition to contributing to the lines, this solution also acts as a fairing of the heads in the rear.
In front of the door panel, in a small recess of the channel, are housed the two helmets. Made on a specific design of Pininfarina in collaboration with Newmax, helmets of the Sergio are personalized with the color of the exterior car.
Ferrari Sergio is a sports car inspired by this prototype designed by Pininfarina in 2013. It was built in six specimens and uses the naturally aspirated V8 of the Ferrari 458 Special.
The first production Ferrari Sergio was delivered to the SBH Royal Auto Gallery in the United Arab Emirates in December 2014. Deliveries will continue in January 2015, with three being sent to customers in the US, one to Japan and one to Switzerland. It was sold by invitation only.
Ferrari and Pininfarina, the two architects behind the Sergio Concept, built six production versions of the radical supercar, each coming with a price tag of $3 million. The price is admittedly way more than I can afford, but for the six individuals Ferrari invited to snatch up the limited-edition piece, spending $3 million on an ultra-exclusive supercar can be considered money well spent
