There are luxury cars that can only afford very rich people. However, there are such machines, which are not available to all millionaires. These are exclusive models, usually created by hand and in limited quantities. Such cars can not be found on our roads, they look with envy even some rich people. They cost millions of dollars. They are owned by sheiks, princes, kings, and world celebrities!
Ranking the most expensive cars in the world
Below is a ranking of the most expensive cars in the world in order to increase their price. It should be noted that the list begins with cars worth more than a million dollars.
10. Aston Martin One-77
The top of the cheapest car presented Aston Martin One-77 opens. Its price is just over $1.7 million. For this money, the buyer will get a really powerful and fast car with sports, but at the same time elegant body and luxurious, but elegant salon. It should be noted that the car is equipped with a 12-cylinder V-shaped atmospheric engine with a volume of 7.3 liters and a capacity of 760 hp. The car weighs 1,630 kg. Up to a hundred kilometers, it accelerates in 3.7 s., with a maximum speed of 355 km/h.
Only 77 such cars were manufactured (this fact is reflected in the name of the car). And all of them sold out long before the premiere. The car has gained huge popularity and is mentioned in various racing video games.
Another interesting fact is to be noted. The creators of the car said that they will not allow a single journalist to his offspring, as this car is designed exclusively for millionaires. The developers did not want the exclusivity of Aston Martin One-77 owners to be diluted by journalistic articles. Therefore, at all presentations, journalists were not allowed to this car.
9. Bugatti Veyron Vitesse La Finale 2015
In ninth place is Bugatti Veyron Vitesse La Finale 2015. This car is valued at $2 million. This luxury car is the final model of the famous series of the fastest hypercars Bugatti Veyron. Its owner was a Middle Eastern millionaire. At his request, the car was decorated with the inscription "La Finale" so that everyone could understand that such cars will no longer be produced.
This hypercar has an 8.0-liter W16 engine with 4 turbines. This engine produces a 1200 hp Auto equipped with a 7-band robotic transmission. Up to a hundred cars accelerate in just 2.6 s., while the maximum is 408 km/h. The body is made of special carbon fiber, which Bugatti was the first to use on vehicles. The back of the car is decorated with dark red inserts.
8. Koenigsegg Agera RS
The eighth place in the ranking is taken by the Swedish supercar Koenigsegg Agera RS. It's worth $2 million, too. This car has a 5-liter engine with two turbocharged engines. Its power is 1160 hp. Mechanical box has 7 stages of gears and optional mode of their switching.
It should be noted the lightness of this supercar - it weighs only 1395 kg. Up to a hundred cars accelerate in 2.7 seconds, and the maximum speed is 426 km/h. The supercar is fully "dressed" in carbon fiber.
A total of 25 of these sports cars were produced. And they were all sold in 10 months. A number of models have already been shipped to buyers from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, the United States, Canada, and China, some copies are still being tested and will be shipped to their owners later this year and early 2017.
7. Aston Martin Vulcan
Again, the Aston Martin car appears in the rating. This time we are talking about the Vulcan model, which is worth 2.5 million. This supercar was developed specifically for racing, so only drivers who have undergone special training will be allowed behind the wheel. There are only 24 such cars in the world.
The frame of the supercar is made of carbon monocoque. Previously, such material was used for the construction of aircraft. The front is a 7-liter atmospheric V12 engine, which has a capacity of more than 800 "horses". You can switch gears with a 6-speed sequential box. The supercar also has adjustable suspension with shock absorbers, brake carbon-ceramic discs, alloy wheels, and racing tires.
However, not everyone will be able to drive such a car. As mentioned above, buyers will have to pass a special program of racing driving. The training will be conducted by a personal instructor (race team driver Darren Turner). First, buyers will have to train on the simulator, then ride on real supercars One-77 and V12 Vantage S, on the racing car Vantage GT-4. Only then will the owner be allowed to ride his Aston Martin Vulcan. As you can see, the manufacturer took serious care of the safety of the buyers of the racing Vulcan.
6. Ferrari F60 America
The sixth place is rightfully occupied by Ferrari F60 America. This car could be purchased for $2.6 million. Why was it possible? Yes, because these machines were produced only a dozen and they all sold out.
It should be noted that this car was produced by the Italian concern specifically in honor of the 60th anniversary of the beginning of sales in the United States. In the States are very fond of Ferrari, so buy them quickly and at any price.
This model is somewhat reminiscent of the supercar F12 Berlinetta, only without a roof. More precisely, the roof is still there, but removable. The body of the special version is painted in a blue hue with white decorative stripes in honor of the popular racing team NART. On the driver's side the cabin has a red color, and on the passenger's side - black.
Under the hood of the Ferrari F60 America is a 740-horsepower 6.3-liter V12 engine that works in conjunction with a 7-st robotic transmission. Up to a hundred supercar accelerates in 3.1 seconds, the maximum speed is 340 km/h.
5. Mclaren P1 GTR
The First Place in the ranking of the most expensive cars is occupied by the Mclaren P1 GTR. It's worth $3.3 million. This model is released by a limited number (the manufacturer does not say how many cars will be manufactured).
The supercar is equipped with a hybrid power-boosting installation with a capacity of 1,000 "horses". This performance is produced by a V-shaped 3.8-liter Biturbo engine in conjunction with an electric motor. The appearance of the supercar is quite aggressive. The front track is extended by 8 cm, and the road clearance is reduced by 5 cm.
The McLaren P1 GTR has a static anti-wing, which together with aerodynamic shutters in the front bumper gives an increase in downforce. The supercar is on a variety of alloy wheels with a central mount.
A special sports bucket chair was developed for the convenience of the driver. The passenger seat is not at all - in its place is a fire extinguisher. The roof of the car is made of carbon.
The cost of the sports car includes training on simulators, consultations of experienced specialists, and participation in races. Not only that, all models the manufacturer will keep at home. If the owner requires, the car will be immediately delivered to the race track specified by him.
4. Lykan Hypersport
Arabic hypercar Lykan Hypersport takes fourth place in the top with a price of 3.4 million Arabs love to collect expensive cars. Only earlier did they have to buy foreign cars. Beirut company W Motors decided to change the situation and created a purely Arabic supercar Lykan Hypersport. The car has an opposable 3.7-liter engine capable of producing 750 hp with a double turbocharger. The top speed is 395 km/h.
Arabs are famous for their love of luxury. This love was also evident in the automotive industry. Precious materials (diamonds and gold) are used in the interior of the supercar.
Initially, the company planned to produce only 7 copies of the model, but there were more orders, so the decision was revised. By the way, one of the Arab hypercars was purchased by the Abu Dhabi police.
3. Pininfarina Ferrari Sergio
Let's move on to the top three. The bronze champion at its high cost was the car Pininfarina Ferrari Sergio. Its value is $4 million.
At the heart of Sergio, the roadster is the 458 Spider. The updated atmospheric V8 4.5 engine with a capacity of 605 hp allows you to accelerate the car to a hundred in three seconds. Salon competently selected by materials and color scheme (Alcantara, leather, carbon fiber on the dashboard).
It should be noted that the chairman of the board of Ferrari Paolo Pininfarina dedicated this car to his father Sergio. Only six of these cars will be produced. Each car will be different in the original color of the interior and body. Cars have long been sold.
2. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Silver goes to the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster. The cost of this machine is 4.5 million.
Back in 2013, she presented an exclusive Lamborghini Veneno car, which was based on the chassis and engine from the Aventador LP700-4. Only three of these machines were produced, and they were quickly sold out. Although the cars cost 4 million dols.
The company decided not to stop there and introduced the Open-top Veneno Roadster. At the same time, the price rose to 4.5 million. Thus, for the absence of a roof will have to pay an additional half a million. Such machines will be made already 9 pieces, but for sure and they will be buyers.
The Veneno Roadster is powered by a 750-horsepower upgraded 6.5-liter V12 engine. Maximum speed - 354 km/h. Imagine how a person is feeling, racing at such speed without a roof! It's probably breathtaking.
1. Maybach Exelero
The most expensive car can rightly be considered a two-seater Maybach Exelero. To own such a car, you need to have at least 8 million dollars.
This supercar was created back in 2005. And the car served as only an object for the presentation of tires of the German firm Fulda. Fulda has developed brand new tires that can withstand tremendous speed, and their presentation required a unique show car. The tire developer decided to collaborate with Daimler Chrysler and enlisted students from the Polytechnic College of Pforzheim to design the car, who made a number of good proposals.
The Italian company Stola made the supercar. In the spring of 2005, he took part in the advertising of tires. Thus, Maybach Exelero is not only a unique machine but also an expensive world advertising. Such an advertising campaign never goes unnoticed.
Maybach Exelero has a 6-liter 700-horsepower engine that can accelerate to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds. The cabin is made of natural leather, neoprene, aluminum, polished carbon fiber. Black and red prevail.
The unique supercar has its owner - the car was purchased by rapper Brian Williams. He does not regret the acquisition, as such a machine is only he.
That's how the top 10 most expensive cars in the world. For the average person, such machines seem to be something fabulous and inaccessible. Owners of such cars are only really rich people. At the same time, they are ready to overpay for exclusivity, chic, and brilliance. In short, money is nothing, image - everything.
