It would be great if you had a few million dollars just laying around wouldn't it? Or if you were able to upgrade your family hybrid to one of the most expensive cars in the world? Well, the most luxurious cars in the world are like moving art to their owners.
It is an exciting world where practicality is completely thrown out the window. This playing field is about grandiosity and flair. If you went shopping for one of these highly-expensive vehicles, know that buying a million dollar plus vehicle is much the same as buying less expensive cars - except that they're way more expensive.
Way, way more. They are not even referred to as cars but as machines or "supercars." So, if you're looking to buy a machine or just want to know more about them, these are 10 of the most expensive supercars in the world.
1. Lamborghini Centernario - $2 Million
The Lamborghini is an iconic piece of machinery that turned 100 years old this year. The Centernario is longer, larger, and lighter than the Aventador and features an exceptional exterior.
It is also more efficient. Everything about this vehicle is carefully sculpted to maintain the limited-edition. It comes equipped with 6.5 liter V12 pumps and 770 horsepower at 8,600 rpm. It weighs a low 3,351 pounds and shoots up to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. It will take you up to 220 mph with no problem.
2. Koenigsegg Regera - $2.2 Million
This vehicle has 1,500 horse power with a twin-turbo 5.0 liter V8 and 4.5 kWh battery pack. It has a weight of 3,240 pounds and what’s even more dynamic is that it goes from zero to 186 mph in just 10.9 seconds.
The Koenigsegg always gets left out of the list of hybrid cars but this kind of power surely makes up for that. It reaches top speed of 248 in 20 seconds. A limited edition, it includes new features such as a 9-inch ‘infotainment’ system, a complete camera system with recording capabilities, Apple CarPlay, dimmed lighting, and Wi-fi connectivity. It also features front and rear parking sensors.
3. Koenigsegg One:1 - $2.3 Million
Called the “Swedish megacar”, it defies all logic. This limited-edition One:1 has 1,340 hp and reaches a top speed of 273 mph. Frankly, it is of the fastest cars ever made. Just six of these cars were built with carbon fiber intake and ventilated ceramic brakes.
Other highpoints include the trademark doors, a new traction control system, LED lighting, and blue hood stripes. Inside there is a custom interior and a new lighting system which uses carbon nanotubes.
4. Bugatti Chiron - $2.5 Million
A classic was just made better in every way, including its body. It has been redefined, while asserting boundaries of performance. It also has a re-worked quad-turbocharged 8.0 liter W16 that produces 1,500 hp and 1,180 pounds of torque.
You can excel to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and reach a total speed of 261 mph. Even though it is not the fastest car in the world, this Bugatti is not just about speed but it’s making a statement; a very strong one indeed.
5. Ferrari F60 America - $2.5 Million
Ten of these beauties were built in honor of Ferrari’s 60 years in North America. The F60 has a stars and stripes theme and American flag seats. Mechanically, it is identical to the F12 and its 6.2 liter V12 is giving out 740 hp.
It can propel to 60 mph in a cool 3.1 seconds. The F60 is only fitted with 1-tread slick tires. Ferrari removed the large airflow plates and replaced it with a small one. The side mirrors are located at the edge of the car's floor. The rear diffuser is revised to meet regulations that stated it has to produce less downforce.
6. Pagani Huayra BC - $2.6 Million
This AMG-souced V12 is named after the Incan God of Winds. At the 2016 Motor Show, Pagani debuted the Huayra BC which is a lighter version. It is definitely not standard. It has an active rear spoiler that produces over 1,100 pounds of downforce at 155 mph, as well as a wider rear track, side skirts, and aerodynamics. It weighs only 2,654 pounds due to carbon fiber and light materials. Only 20 of these cars exist, so good luck if you have the money to splurge.
7. Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron - $3.4 Million
This list shines a spotlight on the Bugatii Veyron – Mansory Vivere edition. It is one of the fastest cars in the world and one of the most expensive. It comes equipped with a new spoiler package, including upgrades to the LED lights and redesigned grill.
There are maps of prior race events etched onto the exterior – and it does 254 mph. Modifications extend to the body panels, the suspension, the wheels and the engine. The V12 engine features twin turbochargers and a 1,250 hp power rating. Two versions of the car have been built so far.
8. W Motors Lykan Hypersport - $3.4 Million
A celebrity in its own right, this Lykan Hypersport starred in the Furious 7 movie and crashed three buildings! Being that it was featured in a movie says something about its appeal. Decked out in jewel-encrusted headlights and scissor doors.
Its look is futuristic and its power doesn’t disappoint boasting a 3.7 liter, twin-turbo flat six that has 770 hp. This car is used for marketing purposes, as well as public relations but can go from zero to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds. It can reach top speed of 240 mph.
9. Lamborghini Veneno - $4.5 Million
It’s been called “Poison” because the drive is deadly and venomous. And after driving this one of a kind piece of machinery, you will think its poison too. It was built to celebrate the maker’s 50th birthday. From every direction, it is exquisite. This car is fast! It has a 6.5 liter V12 and goes up to 8,400 rpm to deliver 740 hp and 60 mph in 2.9 seconds.
10. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita - $4.8 Million
The CCXR Trevita has made it to the top spot three years in a row. It is the most expensive (street legal) car in the world. And it’s covered in diamonds which are not cheap.
The manufacturer used an exterior finish called Proprietary Diamond Weave and coats carbon fibers with a diamond dust resin. Can you imagine the costs for paint touch ups? Underneath lies a 4.8 liter, dual supercharged V8 engine and a total output of 1,004 hp. Well, only three of these exist.
