These are the fastest, most expensive and – surprisingly – the most ugly sports cars in the world. A list of super fast cars that feature horrible body designs isn’t all that common. Creating a supercar and making it look like a million bucks seems to be the recipe for success.
However, these developers went a different way and focused all his energy on building a powerful engine and left the body job to someone else, not quite as talented or inspired as expected. Do you dare take a look?
