Top 6 Expensive Cars In The World
Maybach Exelero ($8 million)
A one-off custom-built Maybach was unveiled in May 2005 at the Tempodrom in Berlin. Commissioned by tyre company Fulda, the Exelero is a chopped-down two-seater coupe, though it’s more than just a show car – in tests at the Nardo high-speed oval, the prototype reached a speed of 218.38mph, despite weighing over 2.66 tonnes. It is capable of acceleration from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds. It has a 700-hp, twin-turbo V12 engine under the hood and can reach the top speed of 218 mph. It’s a luxurious car, so speed isn’t the the main focus.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ($4.8 million)
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. Along with the fancy diamond finishing, it is also great when it comes to speed and power: it has dual-supercharged V8 engine with 1,004 hp with a top speed of 254 mph.
Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5 million)
The Lamborghini Veneno looks completely out of this world. With an astounding design, it can top a speed of 350 km/h. It has a 740hp engine which is capable of reaching 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. The technical specifications of the new Veneno is: 6.5 liter aspirated V12 engine and a top speed of 355 km/h, this Lamborghini concept car represents state-of-the-art design inspired by aeronautics, capable of giving you the indescribable feeling of flying on the road.
McLaren P1 LM ($3.7 million)
Like the F1, the LM has gold plating in the engine bay. And the engine which the gold surrounds is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8. Combined with the three electric motors dispersed between the engine and the rear wheels, the P1 LM produces a heroic 1000 horsepower. At its premiere, the P1 LM, driven by Indy 500 Champ Kenny Brack, was the fastest street-legal car in Festival of Speed history.
Bugatti Veyron ($3.4 million)
The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is a mid-engined sports car, designed and developed in Germany by the Volkswagen Group and manufactured in Molsheim, France, by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., named after the racing driver Pierre Veyron. 1,200-hp Veyron starts out as a Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster, only to be adorned with a gorgeous carbon-fiber body, a new spoiler package, upgraded LED lights, a revamped cabin, and a redesigned front grill. And yes, it can do 254 mph. The Super Sport version of the Veyron is recognised by Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 431.072 km/h (268 mph).
Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio ($3 million)
It is, however, one of the most highly-coveted vehicles in the world, as only six were ever made. Pininfarina Sergio is a concept car first shown during the 83rd Geneva Motor Show (5–17 March 2013) and is a tribute to Sergio Pininfarina, who died July 3, 2012, at the age of 85 years. The Sergio is essentially a Ferrari 458 Spider with a completely new body and interior. That means a 4.5-liter V8 sends a whopping 562 hp to the rear wheels, but because the Sergio is lighter than the 458, it’s quicker and handles better. The new body doesn’t just save weight, it’s chock-full of interesting details like aerodynamic headrests that are built directly into the roll cage.
