FAQ

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
