The Edmunds experts test exotic contenders on our test track and in the real world. Our ratings assess performance, comfort, technology, utility, value and more. How we rank

Best Exotic sport coupes

In this rarified segment, face-melting performance, eye-popping design and wallet-melting prices come together to make the kind of car that belongs on a poster.

The Z06 makes the most of the C8 Corvette's mid-engine platform. It offers superlative acceleration and a spine-tingling engine howl for a fraction of the price of an Italian exotic. Handling is also on par with any fancy import from Europe. Read full review

Porsche 911 GT3

Edmunds Rating
About Porsche 911 GT3

The GT3 is not only the ultimate expression of the 911 but of the Porsche brand itself. Its competency on the track extends to everyday life on the road, but the GT3 truly comes into its own when you find yourself on a racetrack. Only there can you experience the might of Porsche's advanced engineering and fully bask in the sound of a flat-six engine wailing away at 9,000 rpm. Read full review

Best Exotic sedans

Exotic sedans offer something truly special, whether it's an unusually sporty driving experience or luxury accommodations that lesser sedans simply can't match.

Not enough vehicles yet to rank
It's not hard to see where all the money has gone. The Flying Spur feels on a different level than most other luxury sedans, with an interior that feels as good as it looks. Technology features are lacking, but that's the only real weak spot. Read full review

What is the best exotic car to buy?

If you're trying to decide between a Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren or other exotic machinery, well, we envy you! There's a wealth of exotic vehicles available today, but we would spend our money on the Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD. Not only does it look the part, but its 603-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 is arguably the best-sounding engine on sale today. As a bonus, the Huracan is unbelievably easy to drive every day thanks to its sublime ride and smooth transmission. Learn more

What is the most reliable exotic car?

We don't track reliability data on Edmunds, but in general, we recommend looking at owners' forums to see what kind of issues they are experiencing. If you're buying from the prior owner, ask for maintenance records to see what repairs have been performed. Learn more

What are the most exotic cars?

The most exotic cars, including the McLaren Senna, Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini Sian, aren't really available to buyers who aren't invited by the manufacturer to buy the car. For the rest of us, at least for the ones who can afford an exotic car, we prefer cars including the Audi R8, Lamborghini Huracan and McLaren 570S. We also think highly of the Acura NSX and Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Coupe, especially in GT R trim. Learn more

What is the cheapest exotic car?

At just over $210,000, the Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD not only checks all the boxes for an exotic car, but it also does so at the (relatively) lowest price. Even if you don't select any of the many options, the Lamborghini comes well equipped with technology and premium materials. Other cars in this rarefied class might go a bit faster, but the Huracan Evo RWD offers the exotic car experience as well as any of them and for less money. Learn more
