Ten Most Expensive Cars in the World

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 25, 2015

Power always comes with a price. If you’re talking about supercars, then you’ll know that monstrous engine power and utmost luxury will always come with a hefty price tag. Here are ten supercars with that million-dollar price tag and a list of the amazing features they give their users access to.

1. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita - $4.8 million

If you’re mesmerized by diamonds then this Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is for you. Koenigsegg’s sophomore offering is one, big moving chunk of diamond – or a collection of diamond dust solidified into a carbon fiber surface.

This is made possible by the company’s proprietary Koenigsegg Diamond Weave, which gives the carbon fibers a coating of resin mixed with diamond dust. Underneath this classy exterior, however, is a no-nonsense 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 engine.

When it does its job, the engine gives the car an impressive 1004 horsepower output and 797 pound-feet of torque. How much does it cost to see if diamonds are indeed forever?

How does $4.8 million sound? With costs unusually high, making this one a premium, Koenigsegg has made the sensible decision to sell the Trevita to only three buyers.

2. Lamborghini Veneno - $4.5 million

The Aventador has been a major cash cow for Lamborghini for awhile now, so it wouldn’t be a surprise that it is going to come up with a modified, limited edition Aventador to commemorate 50 years of providing quality cars to the public.

It came up with a very catchy name for this new Aventador – Veneno, which translates from Italian into the English word, “Poison.” The Veneno indeed is a deadly beast, with a powerful V12 engine that can generate 740 horsepower at high rpms.

Stepping on the pedal will accelerate this monster to 60 mph, from a standstill, in just 2.9 seconds! The car definitely looks deadly as well. With a price tag of $4.5 million, this new Aventador is a treasure.

3. W Motors Lykan Hypersport - $3.4 million

Do you remember the red supercar that Vin Diesel and Paul Walker stole in Furious 7 in Dubai. In a later scene, they made it fly between three skyscrapers? That was the W Motors Lykan Hypersport.

The two characters’ disdain at the Dubai royalty’s decision to keep the Lykan Hypersport kept in the garage is understandable – with a $3.4-million price tag and a slew of out-of-this-world features and capabilities, it deserves to be on the road!

As you might have seen in the movie, the Hypersport boasts a stylish exterior, complete with headlights encrusted with jewels. Stepping into its interior is like stepping into a different world, or a different time.

When you finally start the engine, you can totally feel the power from the 3.7-liter, twin-turbo flat six engine. The performance does not disappoint – the engine is rated at 770 hp and 708 lb-ft., and it can propel the car to reach 240 miles per hour as its top speed.

When you’re done revving, put the car into first gear and you’ll see that it can hit 62 miles per hour 2.8 seconds after you step on the gas. It’s no wonder then that the Abu Dhabi police force has decided to include Hypersports into its fleet of patrol vehicles. Suspects can no longer outrun the Abu Dhabi police, unless it’s Dominic Toretto at the helm.

4. Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron - $3.4 million

When you talk about expensive cars, the discussion will inevitably turn towards the Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron. Speed and price come together with an immense horsepower output that this edition of the Bugatti Veyron is able to achieve. Just how much horsepower can this Veyron achieve?

Its powertrain is capable of 1,200 HP, giving the car a top speed of 254 miles per hour.

Aside from this crazy speed capability, the Mansory Vivere edition of the Bugatti Veyron carries an impressive range of aesthetic parts – lightweight carbon fiber, an exclusive spoiler package for this edition, brand new LED lights, a made-over front grill and an insane design theme featuring maps of historic race events that is applied into both the exterior and interior of the car.

5. Ferrari F60 America - $2.5 million

Another Ferrari has made it to this list, this time with a $2.5-million price tag. The F60 America is a limited edition model, built to commemorate 60 years of Ferrari in North America.

This supercar, which is based on the F12 Berlinetta, proudly wears the United States’ Stars and Stripes in its design, from the seat inserts to the racing livery.

The car is a commemoration of both the United States and Ferrari’s history of designing custom cars, as the Italian car maker had released sports cars designed with regional themes back in the 1950s and 1960s.

While it is based on the Berlinetta, the F60 features different capabilities. Its horsepower rating is at 740, which is delivered by a 6.2-liter V12. Acceleration is impressive – the F60 requires only 3.1 seconds to sprint from 0 to 60 mph. The supercar also allows the driver to bring down the fabric top, even when the car is running at 75 miles per hour.

6. Koenigsegg One:1 - $2.0 million

This $2-million beast is the most exclusive among the cars in this list. Koenigsegg built only six examples of this monster, but all of them sold out! This is not even in the supercar class: its capabilities are best segregated into the megacar section!

Koenigsegg One:1 does not hold back when it comes to horsepower. How does 1,340 horsepower grab you? With this insane amount of power, the megacar can, at least theoretically, achieve top speeds of 273 miles per hour!

That’s impressive, given its 1,340 kilograms of weight. That’s right, because Koenigsegg designed the One:1 to have a 1:1 weight-to-horsepower ratio.

The megacar features a F1-style honeycomb core, an intake manifold that’s made of lightweight carbon fiber, and brakes made of ventilated ceramic for that impressive stopping power!

7. Aston Martin One-77 - $1.4 million

This limited edition supercar from Aston Martin went on sale for $1.4 million, but supercar lovers still bit the bait. The company only produced 77 units (hence the name) of the One-77, but these were all sold out as fast as pancakes.

Tough luck if you weren’t able to buy one in time, because this is one very impressive car. Let’s start with the chassis – the One-77 has one made of carbon fibre monocoque, which is then paired with a handcrafted aluminum body.

This lightweight design is then combined with the naturally aspirated 7.3-liter V12 engine’s 750 horsepower rating and torque of 553 lb.-ft.

What results is a supercar that can fly, almost literally. It has a top speed of 220 mph, and will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds!

8. Pagani Huayra - $1.4 million

There’s a lot that the Pagani Huayra can give supercar aficionados. A 6.0-liter V12 engine drives its power, supported by not one, but two, turbochargers to boost its power output. The results: 620 horsepower and an outstanding torque of 740 lb-ft.

Pagani has even aptly named it after the Incan God of the Winds – its speed and capabilities are definitely impressive. It definitely walks the walk – the Pagani Huayra continues to hold the record lap time in Top Gear, being able to achieve a lap time of 1:13.8.

The hyped-up Bugatti Veyron Super Sport fell 3.0 seconds short of that record. Pagani’s genius and creativity are evident not only in the awesome performance of the Huayra, but also in its interiors.

The intricacy of the design in this supercar’s insides will melt the heart of those car aficionados who are obsessed with detail and aesthetics. Who wouldn’t love the car’s gullwing doors as well?

9. Ferrari LaFerrari - $1.4 million

Ferrari has outdone itself with a new hybrid car that the company has graced with a name that literally means “The Ferrari.” By installing a powerful 6.3 liter V12 engine and paired it with an equally exceptional electric motor, Ferrari has made it possible for the LaFerrari to deliver an amazing 950 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque.

The racing giant took the LaFerrari’s capabilities farther with its lightweight design. What they came up with is a very light body that, when coupled with the car’s powertrains, can reach 60 mph in just 3 seconds after a standstill.

From a total stop, it can accelerate to 124 miles per hour easily in less than 7 seconds. What’s the top speed for this one? It’s 217 mph!

The market has been quite receptive to the LaFerrari, with all 499 units sold quicker than people expected. There is also an FXX K version that’s built for the racetrack, from which we can expect even more exceptional attributes.

10. Zenvo ST1 - $1.2 million

If incredible power is what you’re looking for, then you’ll find the $1.2-million Zenvo ST1 to be a great choice. Lurking under this supercar’s hood is a powerful 6.8-liter V8 that’s mated to a supercharger and a turbocharger.

This combination clearly makes up for an overwhelming power output – the combo brings out 1,104 horsepower, and a torque of 1,054 lb.-ft.

“Monster of the highway” would be apt to describe this Denmark-made supercar. It’s not without its detractors, however.

Top Gear criticized the car after it recorded lap times that were below their expectations, and after the ST1 allegedly broke down frequently and had an engine fire while being tested at Top Gear’s race track.

However, ST1 has addressed these criticisms, saying that it was the rigorous testing and the extreme conditions that the car was in for many hours that caused the engine to catch fire.
