Expensive Car In World Top On Top

Expensive Car The number of supercars and hypercars is growing at a fast clip. That means competition for the most expensive car in the world title

is also growing. From the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster to the McLaren P1 to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, expensive, high-ticket rarities are crowding

the top of the market. Surprisingly, a most expensive car list is not as easy to make as you might think. The prices for the most expensive cars

fluctuate depending on customer build requests, which—among the buyers of the world’s most expensive cars—can get rather baroque.


To assemble the list, we tried to filter out the wide spectrum of suspect vapor, such as the late Marussia, the Zenvo TS1, and the Icona Vulcano

Titanium, and instead went with cars that have established sales, something of a history, and at least partially verifiable base prices—Lamborghini,

McLaren, Bugatti, and Pagani, and Koenigsegg, among others.


For the most expensive cars list we looked at cars that come from unexpected places, such as the Lykan Hypersport, a controversial, ultra-low-volume

speed demon that is the first supercar to emerge from the Middle East. We also looked at cars that celebrities like Gordon Ramsay have been

coveting. A list like this is also notable for what didn’t make the cut—the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder WRE ($1.3 million), Lamborghini Centenario

($1.8 million), and Aston Martin Vulcan ($2.3 million).


In the end, we decided to go with cars that mixed high style, an absurd set of performance capabilities, innovative materials and build techniques,

and, of course, an unparalleled price tag.



10. Koenigsegg Regera – $1.9 million


Expensive Car


Christian von Koenigsegg may be the most visionary privateer builder in the world today. His creations are deeply personal and undeniably ground-

breaking innovations. The many of the most expensive cars in the world, the price of the changes to match the complexity each customer’s demands.

The Regera is built around a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that pumps out 1,100 horsepower. The rest of the drivetrain is a brilliant departure from the

norm: the Regera uses something called the Koenigsegg Direct Drive system, wherein a small, crank-mounted electric motor is connected to the


engine with a hydraulic coupling and acts as a launch motor.


Then, each of the rear wheels is assigned its own electric motor the push out around 700 horsepower. Off the line, with the coupling open, the Regera

is a purely electric drive. When the hydraulic coupling closes, the smaller electric motor fills out the bottom of the torque curve. Few innovations in the automobile have inspired as much envy as Koenigsegg’s drive system, and that accounts for just a part of the exorbitant cost.


9. Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta — $2.2 million


Expensive Car



The Ferrari LaFerrari stood out when it was first introduced at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, despite the fact that it had to share the floor with a new

Lamborghini Veneno and McLaren P1. It has a top speed of 217 mph, crushed the track record at Maranello, and goes from 0 to 60 in under two



Unveiled at last year’s Paris Auto Show, the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta is the open-topped version of the fastest production Ferrari ever made. Literally


meaning “open,” the Aperta differs from the hard-top—which was already expensive when it was first sold in 2013 or $1 million apiece—in a few

crucial ways.


The Aperta uses the same revolutionary drivetrain to create around 1,000 horsepower: the mid-rear mounted 6.3-liter Ferrari F140 V12 coupled with

its HY-KERS kinetic energy recapture system cribbed from its Formula 1 car. But the absence of a roof—and a slight increase in weight—has

demanded some critical changes to the car: the Aperta’s has a more prominent front air-dam to boost downforce, its radiators have been angled down

to direct air flow out along the underbody instead of over the hood, and an L-shaped wedge has been integrated to the upper corner of each

windshield a-pillar to reduce compression on the rear of the cabin. What Ferrari calls “Butterfly” doors open at a slightly different angle. Also, look

for revised wheel arches.


8. McLaren P1 GTR — $2.59 million


Expensive Car




Ok, so the McLaren P1 GTR isn’t on the market any more, and it never really was to begin with, since McLaren sold it out of the works, and only 35

were made. It’s also a track-only car. You’d think these factors would take the GTR out of contention. Not so! A track car is still a car, and this one is a

beauty. Built by McLaren works as a 20th anniversary celebration of McLaren’s win at Le Mans and maintained by McLaren Special Operations

department, the P1 GTR was sold only in pounds for £1.9 million.


The 1,000-horsepower P1 GTR is one of the most expensive cars in the world because it is a McLaren, and a very special one at that. It features a

hybrid drive plucked from the audacious P1 road car, and but it differs in a variety of ways. Where the P1 has a variety of driving programs (e-mode,

normal, sport, track, and race, as well as an all-out “boost” and Instant Power Assist System button), the GTR has a stripped down set of options. It

has a fixed ride height on race-ready suspension, a fixed rear wing capable that can deploy a drag reduction system, and specially-designed exhaust

system. It travels 225 mph at the high end and goes from 0-60 in 2.4 seconds.


7. Bugatti Chiron — $2.6 million


Expensive Car



When, as legend has it, former VW czar Ferdinand Piech demanded that Bugatti make the fastest car in the world, the masterminds in Mulsanne

conjured the Veyron, an insectile example of aerospace colliding with automotive engineering that traveled a laughable 268 mph. Its W-16, 1,001-

horsepower engine jacked up the cost to $1.5 million, and the four turbo wastegates were louder than most modern engines.


Now, the Veyron—once among the most expensive cars in the world—is gone. In its place, the Bugatti Chiron, an even more expensive Bugatti. Also

faster, more advanced, and more powerful than the Veyron, the Chiron boasts a similar quad-turbocharged W-16 8.0-liter engine, but it has tinkered

and futzed until the output is now 1,500 horsepower—300 more than even the Super Sport, the fastest model of the Veyron. The Chiron’s top speed

has been limited to just 261 mph on the road; its actual top speed has reportedly not yet been tested. But the wealthy and wiling are lining up to set

the mark.


What makes the Chiron one of the most expensive cars in the world? It’s a Bugatti, it’s handmade in an atelier, and no one can agree how to

pronounce its name.


6. Pagani Huayra BC — $2.8 million


Expensive Car



For those among you who didn’t think it could get more extreme that the Pagani Huayra, we give you the Huayra BC, the most expensive Pagani ever

made. The BC stands for Benny Caiola, an Italian investor who may have owned one of the best collections of Ferraris in the world. Caiola was one of

Horacio Pagani’s oldest friends and mentors, and this car takes Pagani’s obsessive approach to detail to even more mental levels.


The BC looks and sounds like the “base” Huayra: The engine is still sourced from AMG, and remains a 6.0-liter V-12 bi-turbo that’s been tuned by

Pagani’s demonic shop gnomes to bring you 790 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of torque. All of this sorcery is run through tripod drive shafts developed

through Le Mans prototype program to the rear wheels by way of a seven-speed Xtrac transmission. Got that? The transmission itself is controlled by

electro-hydraulic actuation and carbon-fiber synchronizers. Pagani, ever hungry for carbon fiber.


Here’s just one of many ways in which the BC takes flight from the planet Huarya: Each shift in this dynamic transmission has been tuned from the

standard Huayra 150 milliseconds to the BC’s 75. That’s taking a fast shift time and slashing it in half.


5. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio — $3 million


Expensive Car



Only six of these preposterous Ferraris were ever made. The very expensive Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio was created in homage to the famed son of the

founder of Pininfarina the year that he died. It was originally presented as a concept car in 2013, the Sergio grew on Ferrari just enough to for them to

green-light a six-car production run based on the Ferrari 458 Spider.


Thanks to an all-carbon-fiber frame, the hand-made Sergio is a full 330 pounds lighter than the already waif-like 458. Arranged in a two-seat

configuration, it takes the open-air concept even further. Where the Ferrari 458 Spider has no roof, the Sergio has no roof, no side windows, and

windshield. That makes the force of this naturally-aspirated 4.5-liter F136F V-8 engine—the same one used the 458 Spider—all the more forceful.


4. Aston Martin Valkyrie — $3 million


Expensive Car



There is no announced price for the Aston Martin Valkyrie yet. But a reliable source said that if we put $3 million, we’d be about right. This car, until


recently known as the Aston Martin-Red Bull AM-RB 001, is a culmination of sorts of Aston Martin’s visionary new president, Andy Palmer, who has


ushered Aston Martin into a new age of solvency and relevance with a series of killer cars. The Valkrie is the most killer car of all.


Palmer and Red Bull RAcing’s Adrian Newey and Christian Horner agreed to build the car over a pint at a pub (true story). Thus the partnership was

born between Aston and Red Bull Racing’s Newey, the aerodynamicist whose work is largely responsible for Red Bull’s multi-year dominance in

Formula One. Newey and Aston Martin invented an aerodynamic scheme for the Valkyrie that channels air through the chassis and creates

downforce without the help of a wings.


The engine will be a 6.5-liter, naturally-aspirated V-12 tailored to the frame by Cosworth, and was made to achieve the magical 1:1 power-to-weight



The Valkyrie is not a car for casual buyers of supercars. Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s designer, said the car—which has a Rimac-built hybrid

battery system installed along with the engine—will make about 1,000 horsepower.

When it comes to the world’s most expensive cars, the prices just seem to climb higher and higher.




It may be hard to believe that there are cars in this world that cost more than a small island, but they exist. Not only do they demand exorbitant

amounts of money to purchase, but many of these vehicles sell out before they debut to the public. The mega wealthy people of the world are just so

willing to pay ridiculous prices for exclusive, high-power, and super luxurious cars, so automakers keep charging more and more, and yet people are

still lining up to buy them.

It’s actually a tricky task to determine the top 10 most expensive cars in the world, mainly because the automakers tend to keep the prices of these

cars private and reserved to potential customers only. In other words, we can’t get a straight answer from some of these companies because we clearly

don’t have the means to purchase one. So keep in mind that some of these prices are estimated, but it doesn’t really matter considering you’ll run

across these cars on auction sites and prestigious dealerships asking for even more.


Koenigsegg Regera: $1.9-MillionExpensive Car

koenigsegg regera


A limited production plug-in hybrid exotic, the Koenigsegg Regera was originally

unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and costs approximately

$1.9-million. The Regera is limited to just 80 units and recently,

the Swedish automaker admitted it has a four-year wait list for its cars.


The Lamborghini Centenario also gets an honorable mention at this spot, starting from $1.9-million after making its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor

Show. Limited to 40 units, the Centenario was sold out prior to its unveiling.


Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta: $2.1-Million

ferrari laferrari apertaExpensive Car


Although the Ferrari LaFerrari Coupe debuted at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the Aperta convertible variant didn’t arrive until the 2016 Paris

Motor Show. And, like other cars on the market, the convertible LaFerrari demands a nice premium over the standard coupe, but it’s hard to

determine official pricing. On the higher end of the spectrum, Autocar reports a private broker claimed to be able to source a brand new unit for $3.9-

million (€3.5-million) but Bloomberg reports the LaFerrari Aperta actually costs $2.1-million. Realistically, its cost doesn’t matter because it was sold

out before it even debuted.

Pagani Huayra Roadster: $2.4-Million

pagani huayra roadsterExpensive Car


It’s quite possibly the most attractive convertible ever created and what makes the Pagani Huayra Roadster even more impressive is that it weighs

less than its coupe counterpart. This is extremely rare when it comes to convertibles, as they tend to weigh more than their coupe versions. Pagani

says the Huayra Roadster weighs 2,822 pounds, making it about 176 lbs lighter, while the AMG-sourced V12 twin-turbo engine still provides 764

horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. It goes for a cool $2.4-million.


Pagani Huayra BC: $2.5-Million

pagani huayra bc


If you love the Pagani Huayra but don’t want a roadster, take a closer look at the Huayra BC. Priced from approximately $2.5-million, the hardcore

Huayra features an AMG-sourced twin-turbo V12 engine with 750 hp but it has been paired to a seven-speed automated manual transmission

engineered and built by Xtrac. Weight savings was key to the Huayra BC’s development, weighing in at 2,685 pounds (1,218 kilograms).


Icona Vulcano Titanium: $2.8-Million

icona vulcano titanium


It’s one of the more obscure supercars on the list, but the Icona Vulcano Titanium is an impressive machine, at least on paper. That’s approximately

$280 an hour if you’re wondering.


Bugatti Chiron: $3-MillionExpensive Car



Bugatti followed up its insane Veyron supercar with something even crazier called the Chiron. Pricing starts at around $2.7-million based on today’s

exchange rates, and for that, you get what the French automaker calls the “world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive

production super sports car.” Powering the Chiron is a massive 8.0-liter W16 engine fExpensive Cariring off 1,479 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque.


Aston Martin Valkyrie: $3.2-Million

Although Aston Martin itself hasn’t officially announced pricing for its Valkyrie hypercar, partner Red Bull reports it has a price tag of around $3.2-

million. The British automaker plans on building 150 units and

they arere all spoken for and

deliveries should begin in 2019. There’s also 25 additional

track-only versions planned, and we can’t even imagine how much those will cost.

There’s also 25 additional

Lykan Hypersport: $3.4-Million

lykan hypersport


There was a time when Fast and Furious movies featured Toyota Supras, Mitsubishi Eclipses, and other “10-second” cars. These days, the cast is

flying out of towering buildings in a Lykan Hypersport that costs $3.4-million. Produced by W Motors based in the U.A.E., the Lykan Hypersport is

powered by a 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine with 780 hp and 708 lb-ft of torque. Oh yeah, there’s one in the Abu Dhabi Police Force.

The most expensive cars in the world are about so much more than transportation. These rolling art pieces encapsulate the priorities of the one

percent, and in that universe, flamboyance and swagger take precedence over practicality and efficiency. Lifestyle criticisms aside, these are truly

mind-boggling machines, and we’d like to count down our favorites for you here.Expensive Car


For the sake of clarity, we’re categorizing recently made, road-legal production vehicles only — limited runs notwithstanding — and we’re leaving out

classic cars sold at auction. We’re also limiting the list to one entrant per nameplate, so don’t expect 10 different iterations of the same Bugatti

Veyron. And these aren’t necessarily the fastest cars in the world (though many of them are damn fast).Expensive Car


So whether your name is Buffet, Gates, Bezos, or McDuck, these rides are for you — the most exorbitant people-carriers on the planet. They say

money can’t buy happiness, but after viewing this list of the most expensive cars, you just might beg to differ.Expensive Car


$4.8 million — Koenigsegg CCXR TrevitaExpensive Car

Best Is ALways Best

Koenigsegg makes its first appearance on our list with the CCXR Trevita, and it does so as the most expensive street-legal production car in the world.

Why so much coin?  … and diamonds aren’t cheap.

For the Trevita, the Swedish manufacturer developed a new exterior finish called the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave, which involves coating

carbon fibers with a diamond dust-impregnated resin. We can’t even fathom how much the touch-up paint costs.

Underneath the lustrous finish lies a 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 with a total output of 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque, which

means it should have little to no trouble overtaking semis on the freeway. The car’s specifications — in both performance and price — are nearly

comical at this point, and just three were ever made.Expensive Car

$4.5 million — Lamborghini Venen


It just doesn’t seem real. The only thing more remarkable than the look is the price — a whopping $4.5 million, clearly putting it on our list of the

most expensive cars.Expensive Car

The Veneno is fast, and that should come as no surprise. Its 6.5-liter V12 spins all the way up to 8,400 rpm to deliver 740 hp and 507 lb-ft, surging

the car to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds.

You may recall the Lykan Hypersport from its starring role in the blockbuster Furious 7, in which the Lebanese supercar crashed through not one but

three skyscrapers in Dubai. In a franchise filled with high-end exotics and one-off custom creations, the fact that the Hypersport got so much focus is

a testament to its magnetism.

Let’s start with the styling, which includes jewel-encrusted headlights, scissor doors, and an interior ripped straight from science fiction. It looks like

a pissed off armored car from the future, and its performance is right on par with its image. The Hypersport boasts a 3.7-liter, twin-turbo flat-six that

yields 770 hp and 708 lb-ft.

It’s not just Dominic Toretto who benefits from this level of performance, though: The Abu Dhabi police force has drafted the Hypersport into patrol
