Everything has a price. And the best, fastest most efficient cars are the ones that have the most commas. We spend fortunes on material things and though some may argue that money can’t buy you happiness, well honestly it can make you the main character of Machel Montano’s HMA – Happiest Man Alive. Imagine cruising around the city in a car that some people only fantasize about owning or speeding down a freeway so fast that the cops can’t keep up even with their Lidar detection devices; unleashing the horsepower of the beast and the pressure of being pushed backward into a soft comfortable leather seat of one of those Super cars. That feeling will definitely make anyone Matthieu Ricard for whatever little time it lasts.
List of Top 5 Most Expensive Cars in the World:-
1. Sweptail by Rolls Royce (Price: $13 million)
The Sweptail by Rolls Royce costs $13 million. And although this car is off the market, it still deserves you to gasp at the price. This car was made on the recommendations of one specific customer who happens to be a collector of super-yachts and private planes. It proves that a manufacturer will build whatever vehicle, as long as you’ve got the cash. This particular exclusive car comes with its custom coach work, reminiscent of the royal carriages of yore. Rolls-Royce managed to wrap the bodywork under the car with no visible boundary to the surfaces keeping the lines from the side as clean as a lustrous yacht. The Sweptail’s single-piece panoramic sunroof is one of the largest and most complex pieces of glass ever put on a car, stretching over the two-seat cockpit. It includes a champagne chiller in the center console that dispenses a bottle of the owner’s birth year-vintage bubbly and a pair of flutes for enjoying it. The interior is handcrafted with wood and leather with hidden attaché cases for holding laptops behind each door. With its two-digit British license plate milled from aluminum and then hand polished for a mirror finish, the Sweptail is striking from any angle. This car makes me curious of how many lottery tickets the rest of us would have to buy to own utterly unique, personalized new cars.
2. Mercedes Benz Maybach Exelero (Price: US $ 8 million)
Speaking of vessels, the Mercedes Benz Maybach Exelero is the second most expensive car and a two-seat land yacht measuring 232 inches which exceeds the stately Maybach 57. Equally peculiar is the engine. The Exelero is powered by a frighteningly, twin-turbocharged, 5.9-liter V-12 that coughs up max power of 691 hp. The styling is over-the-top, Vulgar, and totally enthralling. It looks as if it eats parked cars for breakfast. Funny right? The Exelero has a top speed of 218 mph and a 0-62 mph acceleration time of 4.4 seconds. The two side pipes emit a thunderous, earth-shattering noise that will grab you by the eardrums. The door opens wide to reveal the main materials used in the construction of the Exelero’s interior which red cushy leather seats that move back far enough to house long limbs. According to Top Gear, the vehicle was purchased by rapper Birdman in 2011 for US $ 8 million but that’s just a small price to pay for an overdose of power and torque.
3. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita (Price: $4.8 million)
The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is worth $4.8 million and is the most expensive street-legal production car in the world. ‘Trevita’ is an abbreviation translating into ‘three whites’. The carbon fibers are indeed coated with a diamond dust-impregnated resin, called the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave which is why it is sometimes referred to as a diamond on wheels. Yes, this is coated with real diamonds. The technology transformed fibers from the customary black to shining, silvery white, making the bodywork of this car legendary throughout the globe for its uniqueness and perfection. This car carries a 4.8 liter, dual-supercharged V8 with a total output of 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque. The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is one of the fastest rides reaching speeds of 254 miles per hour. This makes the only two that were ever made even more collectible.
4. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster (Price: $4.5 million)
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is no typical car. At $4.5 million this car has a 6.5 liter V12 with a seven-speed single clutch ISR automated manual transmission that can spin at 8,400 rpm to yield 740 horsepowers and 507 pound-feet of torque. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has a 6.5 liter V12 engine, which enables the car to reach 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds! ‘Veneno’ translates to poison in Spanish and well the car’s design is literally deadly. It has a top that the driver can raise and lower at his demand and looks almost like an alien space capsule. The Veneno is heavily inspired by the LP700-4 Aventador with the design focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability through fast corners. Its boisterous body-work is crafted out of carbon-fiber vehicle fiber to keep weight to a mere 3,285 pounds, although it is driven by a full all-wheel-drive system via Lambo’s 7-speed “ISR” transmission. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is characterized by its design which was critiqued as being extravagant but who wants their multi-million dollar treasure to blend into the background.
5. McLaren P1 LM (Price: $3.6 million)
This car is a British limited-production converted by a firm called Lanzante, who bought the original P1 built by McLaren. It bears great resemblance the P1 GTR and the McLaren F1 road car with gold plating surrounding the engine bay. The McLaren P1 LM is worth $3.6 million, has a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V-8 and has awesome aerodynamics. Not only does it weigh 132 pounds but its reformed rear wing and enlarged front splitter join with the dive planes to generate 40% increased down force. This supercar produces 1000 horsepower. As of yet, only five have been built, all of which are sold.
Evidently science, technology and innovation of modern day have brought performance, luxury, comfort speed and efficiency all together into one product to improve vehicular experience and it only gets better and better. The best of the best always cost top dollar. And being the owner of one of these malevolent-looking monsters is a phenomenal accomplishment. Just test one!
