The most expensive cars in the world are so much more than transportation. These rolling works of art exemplify the values of the one percent, where flamboyance and swagger take precedence above practicality and efficiency. Aside from lifestyle criticisms, they are mind-boggling gadgets, and we’ll list our favorites here.
10. Zenvo ST1 ($1.2M)
The ST1 is less of a car and more of a wild animal to begin our list. By combining a 6.8-liter V8 with both a supercharger and a turbocharger, the Zenvo, which is assembled in Zealand, and Denmark, generate an absurd amount of power. How much is obscene, precisely? All of the vehicle’s 1,104 horsepower and 1,054 pound-feet of torque are routed to the rear wheels.
9. Ferrari LaFerrari ($1.4M)
Few vehicles on the road are more visually arresting, and fewer still accelerate quicker. This dragon-like sports automobile has a dry weight of fewer than 2,800 pounds and goes from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds and to 124 mph in less than 7. At top speed, it will reach 217 miles per hour.
8. Pagani Huayra ($1.4M)
The Huayra is renowned for both its peculiar-sounding name and its face-melting capabilities. The Huayra (pronounced why-rah) is named after the Incan God of Winds and features an AMG-sourced 6.0-liter V12 with two turbochargers, producing 620 horsepower and 740 pound-feet of torque.
7. Aston Martin One-77 ($1.4M)
Under the vented hood is a naturally aspirated V12 engine with a displacement of 7.3 liters. It generates 750 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, which is also a lot. In optimal conditions, the One-77 is the fastest Aston Martin ever produced, with a top speed of 220 miles per hour. It will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
6. Koenigsegg One:1 ($2.0M)
You may purchase a fairly fine home, approximately 80 Mazda MX-5s, or the Swedish “megacar” pictured above for $2 million. A logical thinker could come up with a better use for your life money, but mega cars could care less about logic. Because they are enormous. And after reading about the vehicle’s capabilities, $2 million may seem like a bargain.
5. Ferrari F60 America ($2.5M)
Mechanically, the supercar is identical to the F12, yet the Berlinetta is not quite a Fiat Panda. Its 6.2-liter V12 generates 740 magnificent horsepower, sufficient to propel the vehicle to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. The ultra-rare flag-bearer harkens back to Ferrari’s custom heritage when the brand produced numerous region-specific sports cars throughout the 1950s.
4. Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron ($3.4M)
This list would be incomplete without at least one Bugatti Veyron variant. We are highlighting the Mansory Vivere edition since it is not only one of the world’s fastest cars but also one of the most expensive.
3. W Motors Lykan Hypersport ($3.4M)
In the blockbuster Furious 7, the Lebanese supercar Lykan Hypersport crashed through not one, not two, but three Dubai towers. In a franchise replete with high-end exotics and one-of-a-kind bespoke builds, the Hypersport’s prominence demonstrates its allure.
2. Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5M)
The automobile is magnificent from every aspect, and we’re still not convinced it’s not an alien spaceship scouting our world for future conquest. It just doesn’t seem real. The only thing more astounding than the appearance is the staggering price tag of $4.5 million.
1. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ($4.8M)
Under the gleaming exterior is a 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 with a total output of 1,004 hp and 797 lb-ft, so it should have little issue passing semis on the highway. At this stage, the car’s performance and price are almost ludicrous, and only three have ever been produced.
