Looking more like a jet fighter than a car, the Tramontana Group's Tramontana R Edition comes in at a cool $495,000. Holding back 760 horsepower in a 2,750-pound, sixteen-foot package, it is estimated that the Tramontana R will get to 100 mph in only 3.6 seconds, and to 200 mph in a little over 10 seconds.

Implications - The Tramontana R will entice the rich, affluent and trendy car enthusiasts. In its speed and price range, this jet-inspired car is likely to compete against the Lamborghini Murcielago, Bugatti Veyron and Mercedes SLR McLaren. Though it definitely has the speed, its extreme looks will win over extravagant car owners.
