This was the fastest and most powerful car in production when it was released, what contemporaries of it are you talking about? A total of 80 cars produced worldwide definitely makes it rare compared to most. Not beautiful? Maybe, but extremely aggressive and exotic looking for sure. The price is only ridiculous if you can get one for a lot less somewhere else, otherwise it's just what it costs. Maybe you can get an early 90s Diablo VT for around 100k, but this isn't exactly the same.
