TopSpeed’s Top 5 Spaceships On Wheels
As a child, I used to fantasize all the time about zipping around the galaxy in my own personal spaceship. I still do, actually, but that’s not the point. The point is that the folks who call the shots at the world’s top automakers are just as prone to flights of fancy, but unlike the cardboard-box dreams you and I have, these people have the means to make it happen – on four wheels, that is.

Hit the jump to check out which of the supercar bad boys made it to the top of our list for Supercar of the Year.
Supercars - the realm of dreams and the garages of multi-millionaires. The fastest cars
in the world are in the possession of a lucky few, and with good reason. Most of the rich
may not have the skill to pilot these expensive machines, but they have the money and they

Among the highlights are the astonishingly gorgeous 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe, arguably the most impressive car in the collection, and the Art Nouveau, somewhat predatory, 1930 Mercedes-Benz "Count Trossi" SSK, with its distinctive aerodynamic pontoon fenders, long and low bonnet and (...)
