The World’s Most Expensive Cars
The invention of cars started with Carl Benz’s gas engine vehicle, but there has been a lot of evolution since then, and the cars we see today are leagues above what was considered trendy in the late 1800’s. The most expensive cars today do more than transport people from point A to B- they provide luxury that mid-priced cars could only dream of, and their unique, streamlined bodies makes them identifiable on sight. The price tags of these super cars may seem like a lot, but with the comfort, engines, luxury, and swag they come with, it shouldn’t be a surprise that they cost that much. Here are a few of the world’s most expensive cars:
Bugatti La Voiture Noire
This super car is one of the world’s most expensive cars with its price pegged at a whopping $18.68 million. Bugatti is known for designing and manufacturing some of the best cars on the planet, but the La Voiture Noire, which translates to The Black Car, takes it up a notch with 1,500 horsepower 16-cylinder engine and a body that makes it look similar to Batman’s Batmobil.
Mercedes Benz by Maybach Exelero
Unveiled in 2005, the Mayback Exelero is a powerful sports car with a Twin-turbocharged V12 engine, alloy wheels, Fulda Carat exeleros tyres, and an anti-lock braking system (ABS). The car was initially purchased by American rapper Birdman for about $8 million, but is now owned by Mechatronik.
1963 Ferrari 250 GTO
The vintage 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the rarest cars in the world priced at a mind-blowing $70 million. Ferrari produced only 36 of these cars back in 1963, and they were equipped with a Ferrari Colombo engine, 6 Webber 38 DCN carburetors, and a ton of other features that makes them some of the most expensive sports cars in the world.
Car manufacturing company Pagani Automobil really outdid themselves in the design and building of the Pagani Huayra. According to reports, it takes about 10 months to complete each piece of this vehicle which shouldn’t come at a surprise because of its carbon-titanium fiber body, titanium dioxide-coated catalytic converters, titanium bolts, a twin turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine, and a 730 horsepower producing capacity. The car is regarded as a fusion between art and science and is currently priced at about $1.4 million.
Aston Martin One 77
This automotive art form is a true gem of a car and the fastest Aston Martin ever. This sports car features a front-engine, real-wheel drive layout, a 2-door coupe, and a 6-speed automated manual transmission. In line with its name, only 77 pieces were made, but there are only 76 in existence since one of them was involved in a car accident back in 2012. The car was unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, and it currently costs about $1.87 million.
Cars don’t get more elegant than the super car Koenlgsegg One: 1. If we didn’t know better, we’d think these cars were from Cybertron, because they seem like the perfect exquisite car- the car of everyone’s dreams. With a speed of 62 mph in only 2.8 seconds, a 1 PS per 1Kg mass, a twin-turbocharge V8 engine, and a ton of other perks, the price tag of $2 million seems like a great bargain.
Ferrari F60 America
$2.5 million seems like a lot to splash on a car, but this particular supercar is worth it and more. The car was revealed as part of celebrations for Ferrari’s 60th year in North America, and there couldn’t have been a better commemoration piece. The Ferrari F60 is a product of modifications and amplifications to the F12 Berlinetta, a supercar in its own right and one of the sleekest cars designed by Ferrari. Its major features include the V12 and open-top driving.
Rolls Royce Sweptail
Rolls Royce has a history of creating prominent and unique supercars, but they took it up a notch with the Sweptail. The amount of perfection, precision, and value channeled into making this luxury car is unmatched and it’s no surprise it was unveiled as the world’s most expensive car ($12.8 million) at the annual Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este event back in 2017. The nature of the interior and exterior designs might support the opinion that it was designed by angels, but Rolls Royce will take all the credit for that.
Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron
The iconic and limited edition Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron is a true masterpiece- a work of art whose magnificence cannot be denied. At the time of its unveiling, it was one of two seminal cars in the world, and it is definitely worth the $3.4 million price tag. Plus, it is one of the fastest cars in the world, so who wouldn’t spend a pretty coin on such a beast?
W Motors Lykan HyperSport
Get this: Only 7 units of the Lykan HyperSport were produced by W Motors. As a limited-edition supercar, its specifications are off the charts- it is the first car to have headlights integrated with jewels (diamonds, rubies, sapphires), titanium LED blades with 444 diamonds, a 3.7 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, and other features that places it leagues above other supercars. It is definitely not a car for the public, and its $3.4 million price ensures that.
At a top speed of 333km/h, the Lamborghini Veneno is sure to give an ecstatic feeling of flying and gliding in the air due to its advanced aeronautics-based design. There are only 3 units of this super car in the world, making it one of the rarest Lamborghinis ever designed. This exquisite car was bought at the price of $4 million back in 2014, but you can expect that it is worth a whole lot more presently.
Our list would be incomplete without including the $3 million-Bugatti Chiron, a direct successor to the Bugatti Veyron and a positive upgrade. There is fast, and then there’s Bugatti Chiron-fast, at a top speed of about 305 mph, it is one of the fastest cars ever designed by Bugatti. It is owned by some of the most popular celebrities including Jay-Z, Chris Brown, and Tom Cruise.
