Forget your run-of-the-mill supercars such as the Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren 720S and Ferrari 458. They're a dime a dozen in these waters.

Beginning with the rarest of them all, we present to you seven supercars so rare that calling them limited edition would be a severe understatement. With less than 20 units produced for each of these cars, the chances of you getting to drive any one of them are slim to none.

Welcome to the one percent club.
