Or however, if you are like me and will probably never earn that amount of money, ever, then at least we can dream. Who else needs to win the Euro Millions this week?
3. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is a car many dream about however there are only the fair few of us who will ever have the luxury of owning one. The Daily Mirror reported that multi-millionaire boxer Floyd Mayweather owns a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and plenty of other super cars. such as the Lamborghini Aventador (which is also on this list). Millionaire, successful within his sport, adored my millions and owns a number of the fastest cars in the world. Are you jealous? No me neither, I am happy with my fifteen year old Nissan Micra… I promise.
4. SSC Ultimate Auto
The SSC Ultimate Auto supercar is one of the quickest cars in the world, coming in fourth in our list. This car will put you back around £650,000 so in comparison to the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport then this is an absolute bargain, don’t you think? Reaching a top speed of 257mph, the SSC Ultimate Auto truly is one of the world’s fastest cars. Maybe not as well known as the Bugatti or the Koenigsegg ONE but wow, this is one extremely powerful car.
5. McLaren F1
The McLaren F1. What a beauty. Rowan Atkinson used to own one of these before selling it on a few years back. Tell you what, Mr Bean has done very well for himself hasn’t he? If you are driving an old banger round at the moment, just remember Mr Bean went from an old mini to a McLaren F1 in a matter of years. Reaching a top speed of 242mph, the McLaren F1 is not only one of the fastest cars on the planet but I tell you what, it looks magnificent too.

7. Noble M600
What a noble and elegant machine this car is. Did you see what I did there? The Noble M600 is the seventh fastest car in the world and can reach a top speed of around 225mph. However despite being one of the fastest cars in the world, in comparison to the previous cars we have looked at, the Noble M600 is actually quite cheap. If you have a spare £200,000 lying around and you fancy showing off to your friends about owning one of the fastest cars in the world then the Noble M600 is 100% the car for you. This range is also set to be expanded in the future.
8. Aston Martin One-77
The Aston Martin One-77 reaches a top speed of 221mph, making it into a valiant eighth position on our list of the world’s fastest cars. This supercar will put you back a whopping £1.15 million meaning that you may need to keep saving up for a little while yet. The Aston Martin One-77 is now used as a police car in Dubai. Imagine that, one of the fastest cars in the world trying to chase you as you try to speed off in your ten year old Vauxhall Corsa… may as well give up now.
9. Ferrari LaFerrari
Ferrari is well known for their fast cars. This is mainly thanks to their success in Formula One, notable shout out here to Michael Schumacher (#KeepFightingMichael), the most successful driver in the history of the sport. Keeping up with their theme of fast cars, the Ferrari LaFerrari not only looks fantastic but can reach speeds of up to 217mph. This extremely fast car will put you back about £1 million.
10. Lamborghini Aventador
The Lamborghini Aventador is probably one of the most well known ‘supercars’ on the planet. In terms of the price that the majority of the cars of this list will cost you, the Lamborghini is not too pricey at all. You can be the proud owner of a Lamborghini Aventador for the small fee of £265,000. However, just one bit of advice. If you are lucky enough to afford this car and you are a Premier League footballer who is in a side struggling near the bottom of the Premier League… stay off social media. cough* Steven Fletcher *cough.
