If your auto lease is almost up and you're willing to write a check with two commas in it, this is an exciting time to go shopping for a new car. From impossibly fast hypercars to fully electric prototypes of the future, the world is steeped with cars that come with seven-digit price tags (and sometimes into the eights). Looking to drive off the lot with a supercar that defies convention and embodies style and power? Here are a dozen of the finest options.

Rimac Concept One


Former "Top Gear" host Richard Hammond was involved in a serious car accident in 2017 that left him rattled but not badly injured. The car he was driving was an all-electric supercar prototype called the Rimac Concept One. It was a powerful technological wonder in its short life, upgraded by designers before it burst into flames with a monstrous 90 kWh battery pack that could take it from zero to 60 in just 2.4 seconds.

Pagani Huayra BC


When Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsches are too common for the savvy collector, enter the Pagani. The Huayra model is a classic example of why the limited-production automaker has developed a cult following among well-heeled auto enthusiasts. The sleek, two-door coupe is more than just a pretty face — it has a 36-valve V12 engine that can produce a top speed of over 220 mph.

Zenvo TS1 GT


Zenvo built only 11 cars in 10 years. Among the finest is a still-mysterious upgrade called the TS1 GT (not to be confused with the original $1.8 million ST1). The fjord blue powerhouse roars to life with 1,163 horsepower and 811 pound feet of torque. The driving force behind it all is a 5.8-liter V8 engine with two superchargers.

Even with a price tag of $2.5 million, all 10 Ferrari F60s sold out almost as soon as the model debuted in 2014. It gets its name from Ferrari's 60th anniversary, and rich collectors were quick to gobble them up, thanks to the roofless design, flying buttresses, and center white stripe. The 740-horsepower, V12 engine that can go from zero to 60 in 3.1 seconds might have added to the mad scramble by collectors to claim one for themselves.

If you were in the market for one of the 150 Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercars being produced for release in 2019, sorry. They're all accounted for. What happens when Formula One technician Adrian Newey pairs up with the most iconic automaker in Great Britain? Collectors reach for their checkbooks, that's what happens. With a 1,000-plus horsepower V12 engine and custom fitting for each vehicle produced, who could blame them?

Although it gets only 9 mpg in the city, the Bugatti Chiron features one of the most impressive engines ever produced. The 8.0-liter, quad-turbo beast features 16 cylinders that churn out 1,500 horsepower. It's enough to get you from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds.

Lykan HyperSport

You know it as the hypercar from the movie "Furious 7" — the car so awesome it was chosen to be featured in the trailer that aired during the Super Bowl. It's the Lykan HyperSport and, perhaps in an homage to the film that made it famous, only seven were ever made. Its mid-rear positioned, twin turbocharged, flat-six Porsche engine can crank out 750 horsepower that will take drivers from zero to 60 in less than three seconds.

In 2017, a new kind of supercar smashed the Nurburgring lap record set by a Lamborghini, which had smashed the record of the Porsche 918 Spyder that held it before. The car was a McLaren P1 LM, a 986-horsepower monster that had to be modified just to be considered street legal.

Floyd Mayweather is one of the greatest boxers in history and arguably the flashiest spendthrift in sports. If he's driving it, it's got to be good — but good is an understatement for the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, the Swedish supercar that Mayweather auctioned off from his collection in 2017. Only two have ever been built, and they're as powerful as they are rare. The 1,018-horsepower supercar can generate speeds in excess of 250 mph.

Daimler's elite high-end division developed the prototype for the Maybach Exelero, which was ready for rich collectors — including the rapper and record executive Birdman — as early as 2008. Rich car lovers are drawn first to its raw power, starting with the twin-turbo V12 engine. But its sleek, elegant exterior, which is undeniably Mercedes-Benz, contributes equally to supercar's popularity.

There are only three Lamborghini Veneno cars in circulation, and if you've got around $10 million to spare, you can score one that hasn't been driven since it was delivered. Its 740 horses take it from zero to 60 in less than three seconds, and it boasts a top speed of 220 mph. Briefly the world's most expensive car when it came with a $4.5 million price tag in 2013, the Lambo did something most cars never will — appreciate in value over time.

Rolls-Royce Sweptail


If took four years to build the now discontinued Rolls-Royce Sweptail, a two-door throwback to the Rolls golden age of the early 20th century. Although the single-piece panoramic glass roof is undeniably space aged, the body itself is a bit of 1925 Phantom I meets 1934 Phantom II meets 1934 Park Ward 20/25 Limousine Coupé. It's got the largest grill of any Rolls in the modern era and the paldao and polished Macassar ebony interior all ooze the no-expenses-spared luxury that made Rolls-Royce famous.
