Top Most Expensive Cars In The World
6. Koenigsegg Agera:
You can forget the safe and responsible driving image of Swedish automotive engineering. The Koenigsegg Agera has exhilarating performance and break neck speed with classy looks thrown in for a good measure. This car does not fit into the typical Swedish performance vehicle slot, it is much more than just performance, it is a complete car looking at it from every perspective.
For $1.7 million price tag, the Koenigsegg boasts of a 5 litre twin turbo V8 that generates a class beating torque of 885 and an equally overwhelming quantum of power at 1120.
Accelerating from 0 to 60 takes less than 3 seconds with a max top speed at 270 miles per hour. As a matter of fact, the Koenigsegg Agera can actually do 280 miles per hour, but to crunch that dream number on the speedo the purchaser has to sign an agreement for the Swedish company to disable the speed limiter on the vehicle.
5. Lamborghini Reventon:
With an exotic name that sounds like a next generation electronic razor rather than a super car, similar to the other models before this one, Lamborghini Reventon originates from Bolognese and derives its name from a coveted Spanish bull-fight that was extremely popular during the 1950s.
Only some 25 vehicles have been produced. The Lamborghini Reventon has to its credit a 7 liter V13 engine that churns out 660 brake horse power and 480 pound per foot of torque. Maximum top speed stands at 215 miles per hour while the chase from zero to sixty takes a mere 3.5 seconds.
Sporting a hefty price tag of $1.7 million, the Lamborghini Reventon is the 2nd most costly Lamborghini behind the ultra spory Veneno, excluding the concept car, Aventador at $2.9 million and the track exclusive Elemento at $2.3 million.
Money to the tune of $1.7 million can get you some serious stuff, but it can get you only 1 Lamborghini Reventon. True $1.7 million is a lot of money, but when it is the legendary Lamborghini with only 50 copies of the vehicle ever produced, it does not come any cheaper.
4. Zonda Cinque Roadster:
Unfortunately, the Lamborghini Reventon has to fall back one step in comparison with another car. That car fortunately is the Zonda Cinque Roadster manufactured by the famous Italian auto maker Pagani.
What does the extremely high $1.9 million price tag include? For beginners, the Zonda Cinque sports a full bodies carbon fibre exterior with a specially designed titanium carbon chassis under neath. Weighing at 2670 pounds, the Zonda Cinque is in fact 1 pound lighter than the Mini Cooper S with a weight of 2671 pounds.
The vehicle is amply powered by 680 brake horse power and 580 pound per feet torque producing V14 with the maximum top speed of 218 miles per hour and a zero to sixty in a meager 3.4 seconds. Pagani only manufactured six of them for the record.
3. Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse:
If we start talking of cars worth more than a king’s ransom, then we have to bring up the name, Bugatti some point in time during the conversation. The French manufactured super car is rocketed by an 8 liter W18 engine that produces 1250 brake horse power and 1110 pound per foot of torque.
The vehicle can dash from a standstill to sixty in only 2.5 seconds. The Bugatti Grand Sport Veyron is the current world record holder for the fastest car ever made on earth with a maximum top speed of 255 miles per hour.
Its twin brother, the Bugatti Super Sport Veyron is the world’s fastest production car with a maximum top speed of 270 miles per hour and can be owned for only $2.4 million, sounds like a real sweet deal eh!
2. W. Motors Lykan Hypersport:
When you ponder for a moment about countries that manufacture super cars, chances are the name Lebanon will definitely not figure on the list. This could change very well with W. Motors Lykan Hyper Sport.
We still do not have all the stats for the Lykan Hyper Sport and official figures are still to be verified or released. What we do know for sure is that the Middle East’s 1st super car is all set to sell for a cool $3.5 million boasting of a turbo charged 6 cylinder engine, zero to sixty time of 2.8 seconds and a maximum top speed of 248 miles per hour.
If that is not sufficient to get your pulse racing, the Lykan Hyper Sport will sport LED diamond coated lights, leather seats with gold stitching with a holographic driver-vehicle interface making it the 1st car to sport such a display ever.
What are the chances of getting one? Actual production numbers are fuzzy, but we can probably look at anywhere between 4 to 8 being manufactured.
1. Lamborghini Veneno:
Lamborghini’s trend of manufacturing awe-inspiring super cars both in terms of performance, looks and price is reputed all over the world. Naturally the automaker from Italy deemed it appropriate to celebrate its 50 year anniversary the only way they consider phenomenal, by launching the car without parallel, the one and only Lamborghini Veneno.
The famed Italian manufacturer’s latest handiwork debuted at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. The vehicle boasts of a 6.6 litre, no turbo charger, but naturally aspirating V12 engine that belts out 760 brake horse power. Maximum top speed is billed at 225 miles per hour with a claimed zero to sixty times of 2.2 seconds.
