6 ultra-rare supercars from around the world

If you want something different from the usual Italian supercars, here are some options.

You've heard of Lamborghini and Ferrari. You've even heard of Lamborghini's seven-figure cousin, the Bugatti. (Both are part of the Volkswagen Group.)

But, for those looking for something their neighbors don't already have, there are a number of lesser known supercar makers out there peddling products that are even more exotic.

Swedish automaker Koenigsegg, for instance, offers the Agera R, a car that squeezes 1,140 horsepower out of a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8.

Koenigsegg only produces about 15 cars a year. For regulatory reasons, the Agera R may not continue to be sold in the U.S. after this year but buyers can still get one if they order soon, according to Koenigsegg.
