That is great value for this sure-to-appreciate asset. Originally priced in the $450,000 ballpark even back in 1993, this rare Verde Scuro (dark green) EB110 GT is the epitome of the aristocrat's hypercar. Not yellow and not even Bugatti Blue - this is one for cruising under the radar.

But cruising at warp speeds. The original quad-turbo engine was plenty to scoot this incredible machine to 60-mph in 3.7-seconds before ultimately reaching a top speed of more 213 mph. This is in completely stock transmission and tire settings, by the way -- which cannot be said for the 240-mph Vmax achieved later on by the McLaren F1.

The McLaren F1 that hit those speeds had a special set of extra-tall gear ratios and is believed to have been running a cat-less racing engine, boosting power by over 15-percent from stock.

For the connoisseurs who do not need to shout their wealth and class to the world, this EB110 GT will always be a top marque.
