Million Dollar Wheels: The World’s Most Expensive Cars
Owning a car is a major investment, and many people struggle just to pay for their car payments and tanks of gas. However, it’s clearly obvious that some cars are far more expensive to buy and maintain than others. No matter what kind of car you drive, it can occasionally be fun to check out (and drool over) some of the most unattainable vehicles on the market. In no particular order, these are some of the most expensive cars in the world today.
Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Built in Italy, the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has a price tag of $4.5 million. The company has said it only plans to build nine of these models. With a lightweight carbon fiber reinforced polymer body design, these cars can reach 221 mph. The Veneno Roadster tops our list of priciest cars in the world!
Ferrari La Ferrari
Ferrari has consistently been one of the hottest names in high end sports cars for generations. La Ferrari comes with a V12 engine, 789 horsepower, and a $1.3 million price sticker. It has a sleek, lightweight design, and Ferrari has already made about 500 of these.
Ferrari F60 America
Another Ferrari with plenty of speed and a high price tag is the $3.2 million Ferrari F60 America. This car was built as an anniversary edition to celebrate 60 years of Ferrari in America. This sports car’s V12 engine will propel it to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds and top out at around 200 mph.
Hennessey Venom GT
The Hennessey Venom GT is a sports car from the United Kingdom, and its design is based on the Lotus Elise Roadster and the Exige coupe. According to Hennessey Performance, the Venom set a Guinness Book World Record for going from zero to 186 mph in 13.63 seconds. All that speed will cost you a hefty $1.2 million.
The Zenvo ST1 will run you $1.2 million and it tops out at a speed of 233 mph. This car hails from Denmark and is propelled by a turbo supercharged 7.0-liter V8.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse
The starting price for this French sports car is $2.5 million and it’s known to be the fastest production roadster in the world. In April 2013, this car was driven at 255.5 mph. By December 2013, Bugatti had sold its 400th Veyron, and the company planned production of 450 of the cars.
The Koenigsegg One achieved a first in the automotive industry: it has the first one-to-one power-to-weight ratio in a road car. This $2 million car weighs just 1,340 kilograms and is an industry favorite for top-notch performance.
The $1.1 million McLaren P1 follows in the footsteps of the McLaren F1, which was the first 230 mph production car. The P1’s top speed is 217 mph and it’ll get you from zero to 60 in less than three seconds. McLaren is making 375 of these cars, and most of them are already spoken for!
