10. Porsche 918 Spyder: $845,000


The list of the Top 10 most expensive new cars is even more shocking that you might expect. Released by Forbes, you can forget the Ferrari 458 or the $300,000 Lamborghini Aventador because even at the low end of the scale these models start at right around the one million mark.

In 10th place, at $845,000 is Porsche’s upcoming flagship, the 918 Spyder. When it does arrive later this year, it will come powered by a high-revving V8 engine making more than 500 hp, mated to a plug-in hybrid system that adds over 218 hp. Porsche claims a 0-60 mph time of 3.1 seconds, with an incredible 78 mpg rating.

Red Sea Distribution, an Indiana based importing firm, is bringing two European oddities to North America. The Zenvo ST1 is a $1.25 million sports coupe with a twin-turbo, mid-mounted 7.0L Corvette V8 that makes 1,104 horsepower and hits 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. Only 15 will be made, so act fast.

Readers of this blog will be doubtlessly more familiar with the Dartz Kombat, the belligerent Russian uber-SUV that only costs $225,000. While the whale penis skin has been phased out, you can still get all kinds of bulletproofing, just in case you ever become as wealthy and important as one of Dartz’s home country oligarch consumers.
