Take out that third mortgage. You’re going to need it to afford these rare and excessively powerful beauties.
In life, you get what you pay for. And for some very wealthy gearheads, forking over the big bucks means getting ludicrous amounts of speed, industry-leading technology and a whole lot of prestige. Hit the track in any one of these supercars and you’ll quickly understand why these vehicles cost as much as they do.
Aston Martin is one of the most expensive cars in the world.Aston have never built cheap cars, but under the auspices of Andy Palmer, the brand seems to be producing ever more costly wares – most of which are limited runs or one-offs. The Valkyrie is one of the more ostentatious, based on the old Aston Martin Red Bull AM RB 001.
The Valkyrie, of which only 150 were ever built, features a 6.5 litre aspirated V12 engine. Dreamt up by Palmer and Red Bull over a drink (there must have been a lot of Red Bull involved), this is the kind of machine that has brought Aston back into the black.
6.Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron By Masory Vivere – $3.4 milion
Upgraded nearly about four times since its releasze in 2005, the Mansory Vivere edition of the Bugatti Veyron is not only among the Expensive cars of the world, but also one of the fastest. Modelled on the Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster, this German car has an awesome lacquered carbon-fibre body along with a new spoiler package providing new diffusers, a smarter cabin and front grill, larger side scoops, a shortened hood, and the like. The upgraded LED lights are everywhere – the headlight and taillight clusters, the cockpit.
You’re never going to find a bargain-basement Veyron, but this limited edition version by Mansory Vivere has taken ‘expensive cars’ to a whole new level. Modelled on the Grand Sports Vitesse Roadster, this version’s 8.0-litre engine produces an awe-inspiring 1,200 horsepower.
5. Lykan Hypersport -$3.4 million.
The headlights being made of, urm, 240 15-carat diamonds, is the price very surprising? And then there are the LED blades made of 420 15-carat diamonds. And all the gems are customizable. Looking like an armored car with scissor doors and an interior straight out of a sci-fi movie, this featured in the ‘Furious 7’, and has actually been drafted by the Abu Dhabi police for patrol duty.Built by W Motors, based in Lebanon, this is the first Arab supercar.
The Lykan Hypersport was never going to be a cheap car, but when they decided to make the headlamps out of diamonds (240 x 15 carat), the price tag understandably went into the stratosphere. It was built by Lebanon-based W Motors and is the first-ever Arab supercar.
4. Mclaren P1 LM – $3.6 million
Not a production car, this is more or less a street-legal version of the track-only McLaren P1 GTR. Converted by the British firm Lanzante, who bought the original P1 built by McLaren, it was made keeping in mind a select group of buyers in the U. S., Japan, U. K., and the UAE. What’s more, it’s street legal and shattered the Nurburgring record with a 6:43.2 lap. Only five examples of this 1,000 horsepower car have ever been built.
3.Lamborghini Veneno Roadster -$4.5 million.
Built to celebrate the company’s 50th birthday, ‘Veneno’ literally means poison in Spanish, and well, the design does look deadly. Looking almost like an alien space capsule, this car can reach speeds that can give one of those a run for their money, literally. The 6.5 liter V12 with a seven-speed single clutch ISR automated manual transmission can spin at 8,400 rpm to yield 740 horsepowers and 507 pound-feet of torque, meaning that the car can do a 60 mph at 2.9 seconds.
2. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita -$4.8 million.
The most expensive street-legal production car in the world, this is coated with real diamonds. Yes, you read that right. ‘Trevita’ is an abbreviation translating into ‘three whites’. The carbon fibers are indeed coated with a diamond dust-impreganted resin, called the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave. This technology transformed the fibres from the traditional black to shining, silvery white, making the bodywork of this car renowned throughout for its unique design and perfection.The boffins at Koenigsegg got a bit carried away and told everyone they would be making three of these machines, but it turned out diamond weave bodies take ages – so they only built two.
1.Sweptail By Rolls Royce -$13 million
Before you gasp at the price, do note that this car is off the markets. That’s because it was made on the recommendations of one specific customer whose name the company has refused to divulge. A company famous for its luxurious rollouts, there were only 4,000 Rolls Royce cars manufactured in 2016.
The sunroof is fully panoramic, tapering down sharply like those of the racing yachts, as per the orders of the customer.
