flf1Last week Haute Living introduced the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette, which at 650 horsepower, is the seventh most powerful production car in the world. With that in mind,  the timing seemed right to show off the top five-rated supercars in the world.

Road & Track magazine made it easy by publishing a list of the most powerful production cars of 2015 models. Each of these vehicles looks blurry fast even when parked.The Ferrari LaFerrari tops the list with a V12-engine that metes out 789 horsepower … and it is a hybrid to boot. The MSRP is $1.4 million.

The 890-horsepower McLaren P1 also is a hybrid. Priced at $1.15 million, the Big Mc zooms from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. We are loving it. mclaren-p1

The Porsche 918 Spyder is third on the list at 887 horsepower. It, too, is a hybrid with a top speed of 211 mph. Priced at $848,000, it’s the first automobile of its kind costing consumers less than a million dollars.
