Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster
One of the supercars that can do better by cutting down just a bit on the price tag. McLaren and AMG collaborated on the development of this supercar, and the end result is more than impressive. And there seems to be some hitch in the brakes too. While the deceleration from its 205-mph top end is good, bringing it down from 25 mph is a clumsy business. Agreed that it is an SLR, but the price is way ahead of Lamborghinis and Ferraris. Mercedes Benz
can rightly price it at $250,000.
Ariel Atom 3
So you like to wear your protective gear and enjoy track driving? Ariel Atom 3 is the best that you can lay your hands on. It easily accelerates from 0-60 mph in about three seconds, and there are speculations that a V8 version is on its way. But this is a car which has no interiors whatsoever, and you might have to wear a helmet while driving it. Rightly, the car's price should dip sown to $20,000, mainly because it is a bike on four wheels.
Porsche 911 GT2
We have included the Porsche
911 GT2 in this list mostly because of greed, and also because of the integrity of the Porsche brand. Porsche needs to take care that Cayennes make way into everyday life lesser than now, and remind the world that it does not make appliances. But when it comes to the 911 GT2, Porsche has ditched a lot of unsprung weight and stiffened the ride. Even the pricing seems to be on the higher end. Porsche should price the 911 GT2 around $129,900, ust a little less than 911 Turbo.
Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SV
The limited edition Lamborghini Murciélago
LP 670-4 SV is one of the supercars that should really become affordable. It will take extra $96,000 to get minor body tweaks, 30 more horsepower, a little less weight (220 pounds), and a little extra speed. You can dominate the roads with a normal Murciélago, so it would actually be quite illogical to spend the premium demanded by the SV. Rightfully, the car should become available $300,000, which will make it compete with an average supercar.
Price: Approximately $2 million
Swiss car makers are known for their exotic products. And Volvo
is not the car that the makes the Swiss proud. Joining the list is the cool carbon-fiber Koenigsegg CCXR. The E85-capable supercar, of which there are six examples, demands a million-odd dollar jump over other models. You can get a ride with similar performance statistics with half the price of the Koenigsegg CCXR. In all possibilities, the Koenigsegg CCXR should be priced around a million or so to make sense.
Aston Martin One-77
Price: Approximately $1.75 million
Everybody wants to drive like James Bond, and one of the best among them would be the Aston Martin
One-77. But with all the exclusivity and sophistication it has on offer, it is overly priced. Paying millions for a One-77 does not make much sense. What Aston Martin can do is, price it a little above the DBS and make a limited number of them. The company should make it a little affordable so that people won't have to auction themselves to buy it.
SSC Ultimate Aero
Price: Approximately $600,000
Till recently, the SSC Ultimate Aero held the record for being the fastest supercar on the planet, but Bugatti Veyron spoiled the show by snagging the record. But still, this car, with a speed of 255.83 mph, holds a special corner in the hearts of the speed junkies. The interior of the car is nothing that you have not seen before in other supercars. But we can hope for the best when an electric version of the Aero gets into production. The SSC Ultimate Aero should be priced around $260,000.
Ferrari 612 Scaglietti
The 612 Scaglietti is one of the Ferraris
that should be made affordable. Sometimes even a decent chap deserves to experience a V12 Ferrari, and the 612 is quite spacious too. This particular Ferrai, unlike most of them, is not one of the stunners. Based on looks alone, this supercar needs to be readjusted cost-wise. The right price for this car should be around $130,000. The 911 Turbo is much better looking than this Ferrari, but we'll give the Scaglietti some points for its V12 and keep the prices on par.
Bentley Continental Supersports
Price: Approximately $250,000
We always have a tendency to lean favourably towards green cars. This car runs on bio-fuel with 85 per cent ethanol. While the environmental friendliness would get some brownie points, you are expected to pay about $70,000 more than a standard Continental GT. It is another supercar that would do well by readjusting its prices. The price of the Bentley Continental Supersports should come down to about $150,000.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Fbg par Hermés
As we all know by now, Bugatti
is the fastest production car right now, and one of the most expensive Volkswagen is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Fbg par Hermés edition. With interiors that boast of plain luxury, the special edition also gets special paint and Hermés touches. But these special features come at an additional price of nearly $1 million. This supercar makes it to top of our list of supercars that should be made affordable. The actual price of this car should be placed around $1,601,965. Because essentially, the special edition Bugatti is just a Veyron wrapped in a Hermés scarf, and that also in very limited quantity.
