8 of the craziest cars ever built
There are some pretty cool new cars on the market today, but none of them are as crazy as these eight examples. Whether you’ve seen them in movies, on the streets, or simply on the web, these cars are some of the most eccentric vehicles ever built. Check them out below.
1. The McLaren 650S Spider is one of the craziest convertibles ever
Do you like convertibles? If so, then you will definitely like the McLaren 650S Spider. According to Family Handyman, the 650S Spider’s roof can be raised and lowered in just 17 seconds. But that’s not quite as quick as its three-second 0-100mph time or its 204mph top speed.
2. The Tumbler is the craziest Batmobile ever

Have you seen the goblet of Black Knight Batman Series? Well, you can technically be the caped crusader because there’s a street-legal replica available for $1 million. This street-ready Tumbler comes with an LS1 V8 engine, custom frame and massive 44-inch tires, according to Top Gear. After buying this crazy car, you just need to get a good batman costume. Just make sure it’s a good replica and not one of those cheesy grocery stores.
3. The Thrust SSC can move at supersonic speeds
The Thrust SSC may not look like a car, but technically it does. In fact, this twin-turbocharged jet car holds the FIA world land speed record for traveling 763 mph in October 1997. The Thrust SSC was the first car to travel at supersonic speed and break the wall of the his. That’s a crazy car!
4. This Matchbox themed police vehicle is a Ford
We loved playing with and collecting Matchbox cars when we were young, but this 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty shows you’re never too old for toys. Of course, this huge truck isn’t exactly a toy, it’s a life-size Matchbox police-themed truck that has the power to move your house around if needed. It can probably tow any of your other weekend toys at the same time.
5. The Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE is a crazy three-wheeled toy
Speaking of weekend toys, the Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE is one crazy vehicle. This three-wheeled car/motorcycle is sure to turn heads wherever you ride it, thanks to its aggressive looks and unique setup. If you can’t get enough of Polaris’ vehicles, check out our full review of the 2022 RZR Pro R.
6. We can’t forget the DeLorean time machine
If you have ever seen any of Back to the future movies, then you’re definitely familiar with the time machine built by Doc Brown. It’s based on a DeLorean DMC-12, which wasn’t easy to build in real life. Automaker DeLorean only built about 9,000 units before going bankrupt. And now there are only 6,500 left in the world.
7. The 1960 Volkswagen Beetle Bubbletop was ahead of its time
This 1960 Volkswagen Beetle Bubbletop was never mass-produced. Instead, it was a one-off car that was on display at the Detroit Autorama at the time. We’re not sure of its full specs, but this bubble windshield looks like something The Jetsons.
8. The Koenigsegg Agera RS is insanely fast and insanely expensive
If you have $2.1 million to spend, we suggest the Koenigsegg Agera RS. This supercar houses a twin-turbo V8 that produces 1,176 horsepower and 940 lb-ft of torque. All that power translates to a top 277.9 mph, making it the fastest road car ever built. That’s crazy speed, indeed.
