2011 McLaren MP4-12C
McLaren's Formula 1 exploits are well known, and the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR s an iconic sports car. Fading slowly into memory is the McLaren F1 sports car from the 90s, the supercar's supercar, and a vehicle that remained largely unbeaten until the Bugatti Veyron came along. For 2011 McLaren will be back in the supercar game, but this time it's not out for fastest-in-the-world glory. Instead, the McLaren MP4-12C will come in at a reasonable $250,000...well, reasonable when you consider that an SLR cost twice as much, and the F1 cost a cool million. Power comes from McLaren's own mid-mounted 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that puts out a remarkable 600 hp and routes it through a seven-speed gearbox. With that kind of power, it's actually starting to sound like a bargain.
