SSC Tuatara
$1,600,000
One of the few American-made cars on this list, the Tuatara comes from SSC North America, a small company located in Richland, Washington. The company has not produced many cars to date, but the Tuatara has some big shoes to fill — its predecessor is the Ultimate Aero, which in September of 2007 became the world’s fastest production car at 256.14 mph. Designed to exceed the Ultimate Aero’s performance, the Tuatara makes extensive use of carbon fiber — the body, frame and monocoque are all constructed from this lightweight yet strong material. At the touch of a button, dihedral doors open to reveal a cockpit designed for both comfort and an awesome driving experience.
