If you’re considering an exotic car, chances are good that you’re thinking of something Italian, or possibly from another European country. American cars don’t tend to be worth big money — but there are a few exceptions. Today I’m listing five of the most expensive American cars currently for sale on Autotrader, all of which are impressive, exciting and very pricey.
The Ford GT is one of the most impressive American supercars of all time — and this particular example is one of the best in existence. It’s a "Heritage Edition" car with the original Gulf paint livery, and it’s traveled just 102 miles from new, meaning it’s practically still a new car. Given the colors and the condition, this GT is offered for $599,900 by The Throttlestop in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
Although it’s generally agreed that the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will someday rise dramatically in value, that price increase hasn’t yet happened — but this private seller is clearly thinking it will soon. This is a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon with just 85 original miles listed for $550,000 — and it includes the "Demon Crate" with a bunch of Demon stuff for high-speed drag racing. This is a special car, though it’s probably too pricey. It’s offered by a private seller in Turlock, California, southeast of Modesto, for $550,000.
The 2006 model year is considered the pinnacle of the Hummer H1, as it was the only year General Motors installed the reliable, torquey Duramax engine in the vehicle. This 2006 H1 is impressive, as it’s been freshly restored from the ground up — and it’s only traveled 12,200 miles from new. Consider this the ultimate example of the H1 in the best condition — though you’ll have to pay big money to get it, as it’s offered by Global Trans Vehicles in Miami for just a shade under $500,000.
The USSV Rhino GX is an unusual vehicle: it’s a Ford F-250 pickup truck underneath, but with a different — and highly interesting — body grafted on top to give it a militaristic, aggressive look and feel. This Rhino is offered by Eurocar in Costa Mesa, California, with just 379 miles, for $259,999 — and it’s a good choice for any driver who thinks the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen is too pedestrian, and the Hummer H1 doesn’t quite look tough enough.
This is an excellent example of a 1992 Dodge Viper RT/10 — one of the rare cars from the Viper’s first model year, which produced only a few hundred examples. This particular Viper is especially impressive because it was never titled, so it’s still under the original manufacturer certificate of origin — and that means it’s effectively a "new" car, at least in the eyes of the DMV. It’s traveled around 4,200 miles, though, presumably on dealer plates — and it’s now offered by GT Toyz in Clifton Park, New York, near Albany, for $249,999.
