Cars have evolved from being just a mode of transport. It has become much more than that. Expensive cars represent the cutting edge of technology and the depths of people’s wallets. They are in all senses- a work of art. The amount of engineering and development that goes into one of these machines to try and quench the curiosity of man to go as fast as possible and in the most stylish ways has enabled these beasts to exist on roads today. Here are few of the most expensive supercars that richest of rich stash away in their garages.
- Ferrari F60 America (valued at $2.5 million)
This ultra-rare Ferrari was made as a love letter to the company’s past practice of building region specific cars in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The design is inspired from the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta but the performance was updated to keep up almost any car on the road today. It has a 6.2L V12 engine capable of 740hp which translates to 0-60mph in only 3.1 seconds. What is more, only 10 people in the world has a chance to ever own one of these cars as only 10 was ever manufactured.
- Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron (valued at $3.4 million)
If you ever ask a normal person what they think the most expensive car in the world is, a lot of them would probably tell you it is a Bugatti and they would be partly right. The Veyron once held the record for the most expensive cars in the world but even though it has lost that title, it is still not cheap by any means. The Mansonry Vivere while costing over 3 million dollars is also one of the fastest in the world.
- W Motors Lykan Hypersport (valued at 3.4 million)
This has become an iconic car after it crashed through three skyscrapers in Dubai in the wildly popular movie blockbuster Furious 7. Coincidentally, there are only 7 of these cars ever made by a Lebanese limited production sports car manufacturer W Motors so the 3.4 million you will be dishing out includes the engineering, the performance and the exclusivity.
- Lamborghini Veneno (valued at 4.5 million)
The design of this car is absolutely stunning. The futuristic design looks like this car makes it looks like it was made on an alien planet. The performance further adds to this with the crazy performance it can churn out. The price tag that entails is also out of this world with a whopping 4.5 million dollars.
- Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita (valued at 4.8 million)
The price and specifications of this car are quite often described as downright comical because of how insane it sounds. This car is able to do 0-400-0 in a mind-boggling 37 seconds. The car has dual charged 4.5L V8 engine outputting a staggering 1004hp which makes you are the fastest on the road. If you want to get your hands on one, you will have to get one of the only 3 cars ever made.
This list does not contain many other cars which were sold for more like the 1931 Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe sold for $8.7 million in 1987 because they are no longer available on the market.
