When shopping for a car, most of us want the best but often settle for less. The reason is simple: price. So we end up driving off the lot as the subdued, dejected owners of cars that do the job but fail to excite.
There is, however, a clientele for whom price is no object and a top-of-the-line purchase is standard. For members of that highly select group, carmakers have designed the ne plus ultra of high-end vehicles: the supercar.
A supercar is typically a limited-edition sports car that goes fast and costs a fortune. So if you have a car in your garage that can exceed 200 mph and that set you back at least $1 million, congratulations. You're a supercar owner.
Karl Brauer, a senior director at the car valuation and analysis company Kelley Blue Book, provided CNBC.com with his list of 10 incredible supercars.
So click on to ogle CNBC.com's list of ridiculously expensive supercars. Though it's unlikely that any of them will ever grace your driveway, we can all dream, can't we?
