The most expensive cars in the world are so much more than transportation. These rolling art pieces encapsulate the priorities of the percent, and in that verse, flamboyance and swagger take precedence over practicality and efficiency. Lifestyle criticisms aside, these are truly mind-boggling machines and I will like to count down the most expensive cars for you here
10: Zenvo ST1 $1.2m
Kicking off my list is less of a car and more of an unchained animal in the ST1. Assemble in Zealand, Denmark, the Zenvo create an absolutely obscene amount of power by combining a 6.8-liter V8 with both a supercharger and a turbocharger. Just how is obscene exactly? How about 1,104 horsepower and 1,054 pound-feet of torque, all channeled to the car's rear wheels.
9: Ferrari Laferrari $1.4m
Few cars on the road are more stricking, and even fewer acceleration faster. With a dry weight of than 2,800 pounds, this dragon-like performance car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds and it will prance to 124 mph in under 7. Flat out, it will to 217 mph.
8: Pagani Huayra $1.4m
The Huayari is equally as famous for its odd-soundimg named as it is for it's face-melting performance. Named after the Incan God of Winds, the Huayra boast an AMG-sourced 6.0-liter V12 with two turbochargers, resulting in 620 hp and a massive 740 Ib-ft.
7: Aston Martin one 77 $1.4m
Under the center hood lurks a naturally aspirated V12 that displace 7.3 liters, which is a lot. It produce 750 hp and 553 Ib-ft, which is a lot. Those numbers make the One-77 the fastest Aston Martin ever made, as this spy chaser will top 220 mph in the right conditions. From a stop, it will do 0 to 6 mph in 3.5 seconds.
6: Koenigsegg One:1 $2.0m
You can buy a lot with $2 million but this time the 80 Mazda MX-5's, or the Swedish "megaacar" shown above. A logical thinker could probably think of a better way to spend your savings, but megacars don't give your a damn about logic. Because they are mega and after reading what the car is capable of $2 million might actually be a steal.
5: Ferrari F60 America $2.5 million
The super car is mechanically identical to the F12, but the Berlinetta isn't exactly a Fiat Panda to begin with. It's 6.2-liter V12 churns out 740 glorious hp, enough to propel the car to 60 mph in only 3.1 seconds. The ultra-rare flag-waver hearkens back to Ferrari's bespoke past, as the company built several region-specific sports cars in the 1950s and 1960s.
4: Mansory Vivere Burgatti Veyron $3.4m
This list wouldn't be complete without some version of the mighty Bugatti Veyron. We're shining our spotlight on the Mansory Vieyron edition here, because not only is it one of the fastest cars in the world, it's one of the most expensive cars.
3: W Motors Lykan Hypersport $3.4 millions
You may recall Lykal Hypersport from its starring role in the blockbuster Furious 7, where the Lebanese super car crashed through not one, not two 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.
2: Lamborghini Veneno $4.5m
The car is absolutely stunning from every angle and to this day, we are not convinced it isn't an alien spacecraft surveying our planet for eventual takeover. It just doesn't seem real. The only thing more remarkable than the look is the price- a whopping $4.5 million.
1: Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita $4.8 millions
Underneath the lustrous finish lies a 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 with a total output of 1,004 hp and 797 lb-ft, 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.
Alex Todd Brand Manager at BoxyMo commented "The 1931 Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe was sold for $8.7 million in 1987. That and many others won’t be included in this list, they are no longer available in the market."
