Everyone has a dream car, but who says you should only have one? With so many cool cars in the world, there's no point in playing favourites.

The problem is, cool is a subjective word. For some, it’s a maximum speed of 400 km/hr. For others, it’s the antique touring car your grandfather owned. Whatever the criteria, the coolness of cars has nothing to do with auto insurance, gas mileage or price. It’s all about the dream. Here’s a list of the top 10 coolest cars:

BMW’s environmentally friendly H2R (Hydrogen Record Car) is powered solely by liquid-hydrogen combustion (sadly, it’s only a prototype). It’s the world’s fastest hydrogen car and has set 9 international land-speed records for hydrogen cars. Although it looks like something from a science fiction novel, this aerodynamic beauty is part of BWM’s long-term goal to replace fossil fuels with more clean-burning cares.

Seriously, anything that’s both an RV and a houseboat needs to be a the top of the list. The amphibious Terra-Wind will set you back around $850,000 USD, but it’s equipped with a 42” Plasma TV, air conditioning and...a swim deck. What more could you ask for?


Bugatti Veyron



The Veyron is one of the most expensive modern cars in the world. It boasts 16-cylinder four-wheel drive and a maximum speed of more than 400 km per hour.  Best of all, it goes from 0 to 100 km/h in only 2.5 seconds, but takes only 2.3 seconds to come to a complete stop.

If this car looks familiar, you might have seen Jim Carrey driving it in “Bruce Almighty.” Or, you might have seen it in your dreams. This limited-edition, high performance vehicle debuted in 2000 and is an exhiliarating ride. It has a sleek body, scissors-doors and is powered by a massive all-aluminum 7.0 liter, 550 hp V8 engine.


McLaren F1



The McLaren is considered one of the best supercars. It's the first car to use a complete carbon fibre monocoque chassis and a body made from lightweight materials and exotic metals. Only 100 or so F1’s were built, so if you want to get your hands on this puppy you’ll have to go second-hand.

This beauty was first introduced as a closed sports car with unique gull-wing doors, but was later produced as an open roadster. It’s stylish, impressive and remarkably advanced for its time (the late fifties). Only 1,400 units of the coupe were ever made.

The Spyker is a four-door, four-seater, four-wheel drive luxury SUV. This description makes it sound very normal, but if you look at the photo you’ll see it’s anything but. It has an all-glass roof, Spyker’s trademark exposed gear mechanisms, enormous 10-spoked wheels and a $309,000 price tag.

Only 3 of these were ever made, so this photo is probably the closest you’ll ever get to one. The the car alsoo features the best technology possible, including carbon fiber brakes, a tire monitoring system and a hydraulic lift system.


Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic



It’s impossible to take your eyes of the low-slung, voluptuous body. This luxury touring car was produced from 1934 to 1940 and is considered one of the most beautiful pre-war cars. It’s tough to disagree.


DeLorean DMC-12

This was the only car produced with the DeLorean name. It gained popularity several years after is was discontinued (1983), thanks to the Back to the Future movies. Used DeLoreans have reasonable price tags, which means you can fulfill your dreams of turning up at your high school reunion in this sweet ride.
