This might be the most expensive car ever featured here, but for those of you with deep pockets it might be worth it!

The Esprit is not a timeless supercar; its pop-up headlights and squared taillights place it solidly in the era it was built. That said, it’s still one of the best-looking vehicles ever produced.
