If we’re being honest, some of us girls may get even more excited if we spot an attractive man behind the wheel – with an empty passenger seat!

There are a number of incredibly powerful production cars currently on sale in Australia. You can pick them a mile away; they look expensive, sound raucous and ooze power and prestige.

These cars are well beyond the means of the average person, but hey, a girl can dream right?

Here are five of the most powerful and sexy cars you can buy in Australia right now.

Ferrari F12

The limited edition Ferrari F12 TdF is packing more than just smooth lines and a sleek silhouette. Under the bonnet lies a 6.3-litre V12 that produces a whopping 574kW and 705Nm. It’s rear-wheel drive and has a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

Only 799 will be built so if you can’t get your hands on one, or can’t afford to fork out around $800,000, the ‘regular’ F12 Berlinetta packs a punch too. It costs $$690,745 before on-road costs and its 6.3-litre V12 delivers 545kW and 690Nm.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4

The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce is one of the most raw and aggressive looking cars on this list, yet this brute is still undeniably attractive. Its 6.5-litre V12 pumps out 552kW and 690Nm. The Superveloce is all-wheel drive and costs $891,500 before on-road costs for the coupe, or $925,300 for the Roadster.

The other members of the Aventador line-up aren’t slouches, either. The LP700-4 and Roadster both have a 515kW/690Nm 6.5-litre V12 engine and cost $761,500 and $795,500 respectively.

Tesla Model S P85D

Coming in at number three is the Tesla Model S P85D. This all-electric whizz kid silently generates 515kW and a massive 967Nm.

It wasn’t that long ago that even the idea of such a powerful electric car would have been laughable. Enter Tesla and its Insane and Ludicrous modes, and almost overnight people across the world became obsessed with trying to get their hands on one.

Just look at the hysteria surrounding the upcoming release of the Model 3. In scenes reminiscent of the release of a new iPhone at an Apple store, people lined up to put down a deposit and secure the new cheaper offering from Tesla.

The recommended drive-away price for the P85D is $202,192 (in NSW).

Bentley Continental GT Speed

Details of the updated 2017 Bentley Continental GT Speed have recently been revealed and it has gained 5kW and 20Nm.

Its 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine now produces 472kW and 840Nm. In convertible guise, the Bentley Continental GTC GT Speed is also impressively powerful with figures of 460kW and 800Nm.

The GT Speed coupe is priced at $485,200 while the convertible costs $534,400.

Mercedes-AMG SL65

SL is one of the longest-running badges in the Mercedes-Benz stable, having been going strong since 1954. The current range is topped by the Mercedes-AMG SL65.

Like the Mercedes-AMG S65, it has a 6.0-litre V12 bi-turbo engine that produces 463kW and 1000Nm. It’ll set you back $480,610.
