McLaren F1 and the newer P1, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari LaFerrari,The 918 Spyder from Porsche or Lamborghini Reventon – these are all hyper cars (that I hope you already heard about).

As you would expect from Lamborghini, the Vereno Roadster is a Saudi’s prince wet dream, it has the looks and the price tag to impress those of you who are fond of material things and in love with automotive engineering.
