5 Most Expensive Cars In The World

These fantasy automobiles have some of the most exorbitant price tags.

A few names come to mind when it comes to high-end hypercars: Bugatti, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, and Pagani, to name a few. These companies have established themselves as the top dogs in the supercar and hypercar worlds, offering their wealthiest customers the world's fastest, rarest, most beautiful, and, in this instance, most expensive automobiles.

But in order to find out which of these unattainable-to-most vehicles is the priciest, we've scoured the invoice sheets and uncovered nearly 30 cars all worth $1 million or more. The group includes hybrid Ferrari convertibles, an American speed king, and even a one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce built for royalty.

We should note, though: The prices listed here are the price of the vehicles when new. So we’re not counting auction cars like the Ferrari 250 GTO, or overpriced secondhand sales. But don’t worry, there’s still more than $100 million worth of cars here to whet your appetite. Make sure to watch the picture above to see the full list.

Price: $28.0 Million for a Rolls-Royce Boat Tail (est.)

With the stunning new Boat Tail, Rolls-Royce has returned to coachbuilding. The Boat Tail is a follow-up to the magnificent Sweptail from 2017 – which cost an estimated $12.8 million – and features a unique two-tone exterior, special high-end finishes inside, and even a "hosting suite" with a champagne fridge and built-in sun parasol. Although Rolls-Royce does not publicly disclose pricing for one-of-a-kind designs like this, the Boat Tail is said to have cost a stunning $28.0 million new.

Bugatti La Voiture Noire is valued at $18.7 million dollars.

The one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire is officially the most expensive new car ever, with a price tag of $18.7 million and a selling price of $18.7 million after taxes. And that's understandable. The La Voiture Noire, a modern take on Jean Bugatti's personal Type 57 SC Atlantic, is powered by the same quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine that powers the Chiron, providing 1,479 horsepower (1,102 kilowatts) and 1,600 Newton-meters (1,180 pound-feet) of torque. It features six – yes, six – exhaust tips, radical new wheels, an aggressive, unique grille, and a massive light-up emblem out back spelling out the brand's name. Of course, this one-of-a-kind Bugatti has already been sold.


The Bugatti Centodieci is valued at $9.0 million.

At last year's Pebble Beach auto week, Bugatti unveiled the Centodieci, showcasing yet another ultra-rare, ultra-expensive supercar to the world. The automobile is a modern take on the Bugatti EB110 and is limited to only 10 – dieci – units. At the same time, it's intended to commemorate Bugatti's historic 110th anniversary. Its distinct stylistic cues may not win over everyone, but you won't have to worry about seeing another one on the road. The Centodiece is one of the most rare cars ever produced, with a price tag of slightly under $9 million.

Price: $8.0 Million Mercedes-Maybach Exelero

The Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero, like many others before it, is a one-of-a-kind vehicle. The Exlero was created in 2004 by Fulda, a German division of Goodyear, to test its new tires. Mercedes based the Exelero on the Maybach's chassis and equipped it with the same twin-turbo V12 engine that produces 690 horsepower (510 kW) and 752 pound-feet (1,020 Newton-meters) of torque. The top speed is recorded as 218 miles per hour (350 kilometers per hour), and the Exelero would cost more than $10 million now if adjusted for inflation.

The price of a Bugatti Divo is $5.8 million dollars.

The Divo is a staff favorite among Bugatti's newly released automobiles. The Divo has a lot going for it to justify the extra money, even though it shares a lot with its cheaper (!) sibling, the Chiron. Bugatti made the Divo 77 pounds lighter than the Chiron by adding lighter wheels, a carbon fiber intercooler, and deleting some sound deadening. Though the Divo has the same 1,500 horsepower (1,119 kilowatts) as the Chiron, it has a different aerodynamic configuration that makes it 8 seconds faster around the Nardo test track. The moment you've been waiting for has finally arrived: The car will be produced in 40 pieces, each costing $5.8 million.
