10. Ferrari Enzo $670,000.

 9. SSC Ultimate Aero  $740,000

The Guinness World Record holder for fastest street-legal car, the Ultimate Aero can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.78 seconds. Its twin-turbocharged Corvette V8 motor punches out 1183 break horse power (bhp), according to a review by Autocar. The review compares it to the Bugatti Veyron (No. 2 on this list), saying the Ultimate Aero has a relatively dated look and no heritage value, but it is more powerful than the Veyron and less than half the price.
