McLaren MP4-12C

The Damage: $231,400 (a relative bargain)

Top Speeds: 205 mph.

0-60 MPH: 3.1 seconds

Worth Noting: It's got a Formula One race car (the McLaren F1) in its British bloodline, which was perhaps the fastest car of the 20th Century. This "affordable" exotic immediately becomes British royalty with its anything-but-polite 592-hp engine at 7,000 rpm.
