4) Aston Martin One-77

Coming from a British car manufacturer, the car places equal importance on aesthetics as well as function and performance. The car has a monocoque design. This means that the entire car’s body is built from one big piece of carbon fiber. This is quite a rare scene in a street car. The customization is far beyond just color preference and transmission type. It is to a level where the suspension is fine-tuned only when it is handed over to the owner.

5) Lamborghini Reventon

Lamborghini models have a tradition of being named after fighting bulls. Reventon too keeps up with this tradition.

It has a G-force meter with three display monitors and a 3D grid. Only 20 of these cars were scheduled for production. The car reaches from zero to sixty seconds in just about 3.4 seconds making it one of the fastest cars on earth. The car comes with the price tag of $1.454 million.
