Incredible Cars You Would Find In Your Dream Garage
Every auto freak is guilty of constantly daydreaming about their dream garage. A collection of the world's fastest hypercars, or a garage full of timeless classics. The possibilities are endless.
Ranging from aggressive muscle cars to sleek Japanese sports cars, these are the cars we all dream about. You may have forgotten that some of these even exist!
This monstrosity needs no introduction. The McLaren F1 first hit the market back in 1992, as the first-ever roadgoing production car built by the British manufacturer. It was quite special, to say the least.
The McLaren F1 saw a short production run limited to a little over 100 units in total. Each one came powered by a screaming 6.1L V12 motor sourced from BMW. The F1 remains one of the most significant automobiles of all time.
A screaming V8 motor paired with a 5-speed stick-shift, distinctive styling complete with pop-up headlights, and a Prancing Horse on the hood. What more could a petrolhead possibly ask for?
The Ferrari F40 has been a dream car for auto freaks ever since its 1987 debut. The production run was limited to just 1,315 units, all of which are highly sought-after by collectors today.
1969 Dodge Charger
The Dodge Charger has gone down in automotive history as one of the most iconic muscle cars of all time. The legendary nameplate first appeared in '66, although the second-gen sold between '68 and '70 is arguably the most desired version today.
In its most powerful variant, the second-gen Charger packed a ridiculously huge 440-cubic inch V8 rated at 375 horsepower! As a result, it could reach 60 miles per hour in a little over 6 seconds.
The Miura is considered to be the first supercar ever. This Italian automobile is a prime example of what supercars were, and still are, all about.
Lamborghini only built 764 units of the Miura in total, before shutting down the production in 1973. Every unit came powered by a high-revving V12 motor mounted behind the driver. The Miura was eventually replaced by the equally legendary Countach.
Lamborghini Sian FKP 37
The Sian FKP 37 is a rare Lamborghini supercar that's based on the Aventador platform. Its 2020 debut was a major milestone for the Italian automaker, as Sian is the first Lamborghini to come with a hybrid drivetrain.
The production of this beauty is limited to just 63 units worldwide, as a way to celebrate Lamborghini's 63rd anniversary that took place in 2020. The car's hybrid V12 drivetrain peaks at a whopping 808 horsepower!
The story of this Ford race car is easily one of the most fascinating ones in the automotive world. It has also caused the GT40 to become one of the most desired and valuable classic cars of all time.
Back in the mid-60s, Ford teamed up with Carroll Shelby to develop a race car that would beat Ferrari in the infamous Le Mans 24 Hour Endurance race. The Ford, driven by Bruce McLaren, managed to beat Ferrari at the '66 race, and then continued on a 4-year long winning streak.
Apollo Intensa Emozione
It's pretty safe to say that the Intensa Emozione is the craziest-looking hypercar money can buy, hence it would be the perfect addition to any petrolhead's dream garage.
This eccentric hypercar is limited to just 10 units worldwide, each one priced at an astounding $2.67 million in the US. In return, buyers receive a 780-horsepower monster that can reach 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds. The top speed is over 200 miles per hour.
Ferrari 288 GTO
Back in the 80s, the standard Ferrari 308 GTB simply did not cut it. That's why the Italian automaker developed the 288 GTO, a hardcore supercar based on the 308. It packed a twin-turbo V8 which enabled the 288 GTO to reach 60 miles per hour in just 5 seconds. Ferrari only made 272 examples in total.
Interestingly, the 288 GTO was never officially offered in the US. The units that found their way here, at least at first, were all grey imports.
The Jesko was unveiled in early 2019 as a successor to the Agera, a flagship hypercar produced by the Swedish automaker. The production run is strictly limited to just 125 units worldwide, all of which were sold out before the car's official launch.
Koenigsegg claims that the Jesko will be the world's first production automobile to surpass 300 miles per hour. It boasts a twin-turbo V8 powerplant rated at over 1280 horsepower!
Even when you have a dream garage filled with powerful hypercars and priceless classics, you'll still need a daily driver. The Porsche Taycan, being one of the most impressive electric cars on the market today, is perfect for the job.
In its most powerful version, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S is rated at 751 horsepower. Don't let the nameplate fool you, the Taycan is fully electric and does not have any turbochargers!
The McLaren P1 is a part of the Holy Trinity of modern hypercars, alongside the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder. All three cars can be considered absolute dream cars, as they're quite exceptional.
The P1 was released in 2013 as a successor to the legendary F1. It packs a hybrid drivetrain rated at 903 horsepower in total. As a result, the McLaren P1 can reach 60 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds!
Pagani hypercars are about as close as cars can get to works of art. The Huayra is renowned for its timeless design inside and out, as well as its truly exceptional performance.
The production run of the Huyara is slowly coming to an end. Pagani built 100 regular Huayras between 2010 and 2018, followed by 198 units of the Roadster, the BC, and other special editions. It is expected that the Italian automaker will discontinue the model at 300 units.
Remember Miami Vice? There is no doubt that the Ferrari Testarossa has become an absolute icon of the 20th century. Virtually everything about this supercar screams the 80s, especially its boxy design and pop-up headlights.
The Testarossa came powered by a powerful flat-12 motor mounted behind the driver. It was only offered with a manual gearbox and a rear-wheel-drive drivetrain, making the Testarossa a real challenge to drive.
Porsche 911 GT2 RS
Porsche has been using the GT2 moniker to mark the craziest variants of the 911 ever since the 1990s. The GT2 has always been spartan, powerful, and difficult to drive. The original GT2 RS is nicknamed the Widowmaker for a good reason.
The latest GT2 RS is a track-focused variant of the 991.2 generation of the 911. Its 3.8L flat-six boxer powerplant delivers nearly 700 horsepower just to the rear wheels!
1963 Chevrolet Corvette
Every Corvette fan knows that 1963 was a very special year for America's first sports car. Not only was it the first year for the second-gen C2 Corvette, but also the only year that featured an iconic split-window rear end.
From 1964 onwards, every C2 Corvette left the factory with a one-piece rear window. In 1963, however, GM offered a different split-window design. Naturally, it has become one of the most sought-after Corvettes among wealthy collectors.
The name of this hypercar is pretty self-explanatory. The LaFerrari is, simply put, the ultimate modern Ferrari. It's quite special too, as the Italian automaker only built 500 coupes followed by 210 drop-top Apertas.
Today, the Ferrari LaFerrari remains one of the most valuable cars from the 21st century. One unit was auctioned off for a whopping $8.3 million just a few years back.
Lamborghini Huracan STO
The regular Huracan is already an exceptional vehicle. Sometimes, however, the base model just does not cut it. Luckily, Lamborghini has introduced the Huracan STO, an absolutely jaw-dropping track-focused version of its V10 supercar.
The Huracan STO is modified to make 630 horsepower from its screaming 5.2L engine. Its dual-clutch 7-speed transmission is among the quickest in the industry, ensuring seamless and efficient shifts between gears. When it comes to track days, it does not get much better than this.
The Regera is one of the fastest automobiles of all time. It's no secret that most petrolheads would want to have one sitting in their dream garage. This monster packs a hybrid drivetrain rated at an astonishing 1500 horsepower in total. It can reach 250 miles per hour in under 23 seconds!
The production run was limited to just 80 units, each one priced at $1.9 million. All of them have been sold out for quite some time now.
Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR
Let's be honest, who wouldn't want to drive around in a street-legal race car? The legendary Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR is just that. It was developed as a roadgoing version of the FIA GT race car built for the Le Mans endurance race in the late 90s.
It's virtually impossible to come across one of these beauties today. The German automaker only built 20 street legal units, as well as 6 roadsters and 2 prototypes.
Ferrari 250 GTO
The most expensive automobile in existence simply has to make it into your dream garage. This rare beauty is quite literally priceless.
The 250 GTO saw a short production run limited to just 36 units, all of which were sold between 1962 and 1964. The Ferrari 250 GTO saw lots of success in motorsport, quickly becoming the most sought-after automobile of all time. One example was auctioned off for a jaw-dropping $70 million back in 2018.
Naming a vehicle after a legendary F1 driver is quite a bold move. After all, there's always the risk that the final product may not live up to the expectations, and the name itself already sets the bar quite high. That said, McLaren has managed to pull it off.
The McLaren Senna is a gorgeous hypercar built on the 720S platform. Its mind-blowing performance is the perfect tribute to Ayrton Senna, a legend who used to race for McLaren.
The Cobra is one of the most fascinating automobiles developed by Carroll Shelby. Back in the early 1960s, Shelby wanted to throw a powerful V8 motor in a small sports car. The body was supplied by the British AC Cars, while Ford lent the powertrains.
The most hardcore version of the AC Cobra left the factory with a 427-cubic inch big-block. It can shoot up to 60 miles per hour in just 3.4 seconds! A genuine AC Cobra can be worth well over $1.5 million.
The Zonda was the first production automobile ever made by Pagani. Its design is truly timeless. In fact, it's difficult to believe that this model first hit the market over two decades ago!
The Pagani Zonda always came powered by a screaming V12 engine borrowed from Mercedes-Benz. Early production units can reach a top speed of 185mph, while the newer ones can surpass 220mph! The last Zonda ever left the Pagani factory in 2017. No successor has been announced.
Rolls Royce Phantom
The Phantom has been a lavish land yacht for nearly a century now. The model first appeared on the market all the way back in 1925. The latest, eighth-generation RR Phantom, hit the market for the 2017 model year.
Very few cars are as upscale as the Phantom. Buyers can select the Extended Wheelbase variant which offers even more legroom for the rear-seat passengers. You'll need to hire a chauffeur if you're going to get a Phantom, too.
Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
The Shelby Mustang is a high-performance version of Ford's pony car. The first-ever Shelby GT500 from 1967 is among the most desired variants of the Mustang to date.
The '67 GT500 came fitted with a 428-cubic inch Ford Cobra V8 motor, rated at over 350 horsepower! Ford only managed to build around 2000 units of the GT500 that year, making it one of the rarest Mustangs ever.
Nissan Skyline GT-R 34
Japan saw an array of exciting sports cars throughout the 1990s, such as the Mazda RX7 or the Toyota Supra. However, the Nissan Skyline has arguably always been the king of them all.
The Skyline GT-R 34 is one of the most sought-after JDM cars today. It was the fifth and final generation of the Skyline GT-R. A little over 11 500 units were built in total.
Porsche 918 Spyder
The Porsche 918 is the third automobile that makes up the Holy Trinity of modern hypercars, alongside the previously mentioned McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari. At the time of its 2015 debut, the 918 Spyder was the most powerful Porsche production car ever.
A hypercar as unique as the 918 required an equally special production run. Porsche only built this model for one year, the run was strictly limited to just 918 units worldwide.
Naturally, every petrolhead would want to own a supercar as special as the Ferrari F50. The model hit the market in 1995 as a successor to the legendary F40. The F50 was an instant hit, with all 349 units sold directly after its debut.
The Ferrari F50 features a 512-horsepower V12 motor mounted in the rear of the car, as well as a distinctive design that pays homage to its predecessor. The removable Targa top is ideal for hot summer days, too!
The Bugatti Chiron is another modern hypercar that does not really need an introduction. It used to be the world's fastest production car, as well as the record holder for the fastest 0-400-0km/h run.
This lavish hypercar is powered by a unique quad-turbocharged W16 engine, rated at either 1479 or 1578 horsepower depending on the version. This land yacht starts at $3.3 million in the US.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
The Aventador is the latest model in Lamborghini's line of V12-powered bulls. It first debuted in 2011 as a replacement for the Murcielago and is still in production to this day.
The latest special edition of the Aventador, dubbed the Super Veloce Jota or SVJ for short, is as special as the model can get. Its V12 motor can launch the SVJ to 124mph in just 8.6 seconds! Those who live in a sunny area can opt for the drop-top SVJ Roadster.
Although not the first production vehicle made by the Swedish automaker, the Agera is what caused Koenigsegg to rise to fame. The hypercar debuted in 2010 as a successor to the CCX.
The Agera was a real game-changer in the world of high-performance automobiles, to say the least. The base model peaked at nearly 950 horsepower, while the more powerful Agera RS produces a whopping 1341 horsepower. It can reach 60 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds!
The Lexus LFA is perhaps the most underrated modern supercar of all time. For some odd reason, it was never a popular choice among buyers. That's quite a shame, as the LFA is considered to have one of the best-sounding V10 powertrains ever.
The LFA features a V10 motor that delivers an astounding 553-horsepower to the rear wheels. The model was produced for just three years starting in 2011.
Aston Martin DB5
Driving a sleek DB5 is the best way to feel like James Bond. After all, this British grand tourer has been the go-to automobile for Agent 007 ever since 1963. That's the same year the DB5 first went on sale!
This stylish grand tourer came powered by a 4.0L flat-six rated at between 282 and 325 horsepower, depending on the production year. It remains one of the most iconic British vehicles ever.
The Audi R8 has been a vital part of the German automaker's lineup for 15 years now. This high-performance coupe was first released back in 2006 and quickly took the world by storm, as it proved to be a serious competitor to other supercars sold at the time.
The newest, second-gen R8 debuted back in 2015. The car uses the same platform as the Lamborghini Huracan. In fact, the V10 version is even powered by the same motor!
The Viper may just be the most hardcore Dodge sports car of all time. It was originally developed in the early 90s to compete with the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette. Unlike the Corvette, the Viper was powered by a monstrous V10 engine!
The final generation of the Viper was sold between 2013 and 2017. Like its predecessors, it came fitted with a powerful V10 beneath the hood. Sadly, Dodge discontinued the model due to low sales. It was simply way too crazy, even for wealthy buyers.
Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing
Gullwing doors are different than scissor doors found on Lamborghinis, or dihedral doors that are mounted on McLarens or Koenigseggs. In fact, the Tesla Model X is the only car sold today that comes with Gullwing doors.
The 300SL Gullwing is an icon of German automobiles. It was produced for a couple of years during the 50s and quickly became one of the most valuable classics ever. Buyers should expect to pay well over a million dollars for a well-preserved unit.
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
A base model Challenger is already a cool car in its own right. The souped-up SRT Hellcat Demon, however, is in an entirely different league.
The Demon is powered by a supercharged 6.2L V8 motor that peaks at 840 horsepower. As a result, this variant of the Challenger can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in just 2.3 seconds! A sprint to 140 miles per hour takes just 9.6 seconds.
One of the few problems with Koenigsegg hypercars is the fact that they're not exactly practical. Every single vehicle ever built by Koenigsegg is a two-seater. At least until the 2021 debut of the Gemera, Koenigsegg's first-ever four-seater.
Despite being able to accommodate up to four occupants, the Gemera is arguably even more hardcore than its two-seater alternatives. Its three-cylinder hybrid drivetrain delivers 1700 horsepower in total! As a result, it can launch to 62 miles per hour in 1.9 seconds.
Chevrolet Camaro SS
No dream garage would possibly be complete without a bit of American muscle. The first-gen Chevrolet Camaro SS may not be the rarest, nor the most expensive muscle car of all time. It is, however, one that's a dream for petrolheads around the globe.
The first-gen Chevrolet Camaro SS came powered by a variety of different V8 motors. This gas-guzzler is perfect for a cruise on a hot Sunday afternoon, that's for sure.
Aston Martin One-77
There is a great chance that you have never heard of the Aston Martin One-77. This rare beauty saw a short production run limited to just 77 units worldwide. The production lasted 3 years, starting in 2009.
Every Aston Martin One-77 came powered by a high-revving V12 motor, paired with either an automatic transmission or a stick-shift. The One-77 is rated at 750 horsepower, all that power is delivered to just the rear wheels!
