Supercars are a symbol of panache, wealth and speed because they are literally the most expensive and powerful cars in the world. They were created specifically for racing, so they can reach higher speeds than regular cars and they have a wide range of features that set them apart from other vehicles. For instance, they often have a very distinctive design which makes them look more like race cars (lower to the ground, often v8/v10/v12 engines) and they are super hard to buy due to small quantity and high cost.
In addition, many supercars also offer very expensive customizable features such as custom paint jobs and custom interiors. Finally, an important feature of these cars is that they are made with high-tech materials and components such as carbon fiber or titanium in order to make them lighter and more durable.
The most expensive car ever made is a Bugatti Chiron, which costs around $3 million. Cars like these can go from 0 to 60 mph in about 3 seconds, have top speeds of over 200 mph, and can cost up to $3 million dollars or more.
