    2009's Hottest Sports Cars

    Despite rising gas prices and an economic slowdown, there's no shortage of super-pricey, super-fast models. In fact, there seem to be more new ones costing six figures and up every year.

    We've assembled a list of the latest and greatest models introduced for 2009. They're listed in alphabetical order.
  • Koenigsegg CCXR Edition

    Koenigsegg CCXR Edition

    Price: $2,200,000 (est) | 0-62 mph: 2.9 seconds
    Top Speed: 254 mph | Mileage: N/A

    The CCXR Edition from Swedish boutique automaker Koenigsegg gives the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 a run for its crown as the fastest, priciest production car in the world. Not only does its 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine produce a ridiculous 1,018 horsepower
  • Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

    Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

    Price: $102,450 | 0-60 mph: 3.4 seconds
    Top Speed: 205 mph
    Mileage: 14 mpg city/21 mpg highway

    A six-figure price is unheard of for a Corvette. But considering that it competes with cars costing three times as much, the new Corvette ZR1 still seems like a bargain. It's bursting with advanced technology. The hand-built supercharged 638-horsepower V8 engine is the centerpiece.
  • Nissan GT-R

    Nissan GT-R

    Price: $69,850 | 0-60 mph: 3.5 seconds
    Top Speed: 193 mph
    Mileage: 16 mpg city/21 mpg highway

    The Nissan GT-R coupe outpaces some of the most desirable sports cars in the world for far less money. Although it's merely a Nissan, auto enthusiasts have been salivating over its arrival for years, after previously only being offered overseas.
