There are cars, then there are supercars, and then there are supercars so rare that you’ll probably just see them in pictures. Packed with technology and luxury alike, these are machines so exquisite and expensive, that they are worthy of being kept in a safe, just like in Fast and Furious 7. We bring to you a list of five rarest supercars, which will make you feel lucky if you ever spot one in the flesh in your entire lifetime.

1. Lamborghini Veneno
After making the world go mad with the Sesto Elemento, Lamborghini decided to take the madness a notch higher with the Lamborghini Veneno, based on the monster called Aventador. What makes the Veneno even more insane than its forerunner is that its 6.5 litre V12 engine produced 50 horses more than the Aventador, taking the overall power output to 740 bhp. However its most striking feature is the body wherein its heavily sculpted front end acts like a giant wing, helping channel air to a bigger diffuser at the back.
How many of these are there in the world? 6 – 3 coupes, 3 roadsters.
2. Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

Designed especially for the racetrack, the Sesto Elemento had people gaping in awe when Lamborghini pulled the wraps off this beauty. Featuring a carbonfibre chassis, body, driveshaft along with carbonfibre suspension components; and at 999 kgs, the Sesto Elemento is also the lightest Lamborghini produced.
This car features a tweaked Gallardo engine that numbs the mind with its 5.2 litre V10 engine that delivers 562 bhp, with very little to weight it down.
How many of these are there in the world? 20.
3. Ferrari FXX
The FXX was a track only car based on the Enzo. The 6.0 litre V12 engine which went into it was enlarged to 6.3 litres that produced 800bhp. This car was not road legal, hence could also be fitted with slick tyres – ideal for use on the race track, making it wickedly fast.
The only issue with the FXX was that though it was a track only car, and customers had to shell around two million pounds for one, they could drive it ONLY when Ferrari would want them to on specially organized track day events.
How many of these are there in the world? 30.
4. Lykan Hypersport
The Lykan Hypersport is the first car to come from the Middle East, and the third most expensive car in the world after the Lamborghini Veneno and the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Many will now recollect this car as the one Vin Diesel drove through three buildings in the movie Fast and Furious 7.
The Lykan Hypersport comes with a flat-six 3.7 litre turbo engine that dishes out a hard hitting 740 bhp along with 960Nm of torque with a claimed acceleration time of 0-100kmph in 2.8 seconds. Now it’s not these figures that make the Hypersport one of the most expensive and rare cars, but the fact that it features 420 diamonds in its headlight, which itself is made of titanium blades is what sets this high price tag. If diamonds aren’t what you fancy, you can also choose between rubies and sapphires to be integrated in your car; after all it’s the Middle-East, you can get as lavish as you want.

5. McLaren F1 LM
The McLaren is amongst the top supercars in the world. But if that isn’t what your taste buds crave, then McLaren also put up on offer the F1 LM, based on the legendary F1 GTR race car. How was it better than the F1? For starters, it had the creature comforts to make it a supercar which the F1 was devoid of, and it sat on a much stiffer suspension setup. What further enhanced this car’s aerodynamic abilities from the F1 is front splitter, rear diffuser and the giant rear wing from the GTR.
