I’m not much of a car guy, but I do appreciate the beauty of a classic Mustang or brand new Ferrari. For those who love modern exotic cars, writer Shane McGlaun of Slash Gear has put together his list of the five most collectible modern cars on the planet. They’re so sweet, they can even excite a non-car guy like me. Enjoy!
Said to be produced in very limited numbers, the Ford GT has “an insane amount of aerodynamics and is powered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine.” Sure, that may not seem all that impressive, but McGlaun writes the output will be around 600hp! Made to be light and handle well, the car will also be raced in some of the biggest events in the world.
McLaren MSO Carbon Series LT
A special version based on the standard 675LT Spider, the MSO Carbon Series LT is made entirely of naked carbon fiber. It’s a stunning car, says McGlaun, and is extremely rare (only 25 will be produced). The power comes from a 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine which puts out 666bhp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
Porsche 918 Spyder
One of the oldest cars on the list, McGlaun says the 918 Spyder “helped bring hybrid power to the exotic car realm.” It’s powered by a 4.6L V8 with a total output of 770hp. Want the car to be even sweeter? Opt for the Weissach package, says McGlaun.
Sure, the name is cheesy, but this car is an incredible performer, says McGlaun. Featuring a massive V12 with an output of 789, the LaFerrari also has a hybrid power system of 120kW which bumps the total output to 949hp. Want speed? The LaFerrari can hit 124mph in seven seconds and has a top speed of 217mph!
The newest name on the list, the Koenigsegg One:1 features one horsepower for every one kilogram of weight. The horsepower for this beast is 1341 and it has been said to hit a top speed of 273mph. McGlaun says the car is “insane” and “easily the most exotic car on the list.”
