McLaren P1

Though it dates from the early nineties, McLaren's legendary F1 is still on the short list of greatest production cars ever built, so its latest effort, the P1, faces the highest possible expectations. While McLaren is known for its powerhouse Formula One team, the P1 is in many ways more advanced than one of the series' race cars – its twin-turbo V8, 177-horsepower electric motor (for a total output of 903 horsepower), and launch control would all be forbidden in competition. McLaren is building only 375 cars, so place your order now. [$1.15 million; mclaren.com]
