7 MOST EXPENSIVE NEW CARS OF ALL TIME
If you were a car enthusiast with literally a lot of money to spend, well, I’m pretty sure we’d be seeing any of these 7 cars in your garage. The most luxurious cars in the world are so much more than transportation. Flamboyance, swag and luxury take precedence over practicality and efficiency. It’s not always practically for these babies. Lifestyle criticisms aside, these are truly drooling and mind-boggling machines. Here are the top 7 most expensive new cars of all time:
- Bugatti Veyron Vivere By Mansory
Price: $3.4 Million*
This Veyron gets an asterisk because technically it wasn't produced by Bugatti. The Veyron Vivere was a limited edition built by the tuners Mansory. Estimated at $3.4 million price tag puts it well within the realm of one of the most expensive cars ever. Built with only a total of two units, each with an extreme carbon-fiber accented exterior, a black and white leather-and-carbon cabin, and a 1,200-horsepower (894-kilowatt) Veyron engine underneath. Top speed is a blistering 254 miles per hour (408 kilometers per hour).
- W Motors Lykan Hypersport
Price: $3.4 Million
Dubai-based W Motors shocked the world with its edgy Lykan Hypersport supercar in 2013. With titanium LED headlights housing 420 15-carat diamonds and a holographic display in the center console, it's no surprise it was the third most expensive car ever when new. A wild hypercar with a powerful heart; the twin-turbocharged 3.7-liter six-cylinder engine underhood produces 780 horsepower (581 kilowatts) and 708 (960 Newton-meters) of torque.
- Lamborghini Veneno
Price: $4.5 Million
Another aweing craft by Lamborghini. A total of only 14 examples of the Aventador-based Veneno between 2014 and 2015 were made. Each one cost around $4.5 million, depending on how it was spec'd, and was available in both convertible and coupe configurations. Underhood Lamborghini fitted a more-powerful iteration of the Aventador's 6.5-liter V12, now producing 740 horsepower (552 kilowatts) and 509 pound-feet (609 Newton-meters) of torque, which gave it the ability to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in a blistering 2.9 seconds. To date, it’s the most expensive new Lamborghini ever
- Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
Price: $4.8 Million
Koenigsegg introduced its "most-affordable" model, the Jesko. But the diamond-coated, $4.8-million CCXR Trevita sits on the opposite end of the Koenigsegg price spectrum. Finished in a proprietary Diamond Weave finish exterior (essentially carbon fiber covered in diamonds), Motivated by a twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V8 with 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque.
- Mercedes-Maybach Exelero
Price: $8 Million
Luxury at its finest indeed. Like many others before it, the Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero is a one-off. Commissioned by Fulda, a German subsidiary of Goodyear. The Exlero debuted in 2004. Mercedes built the Exelero on the bones of a Maybach, and gave it the same twin-turbo V12 engine producing 690 horsepower (510 kilowatts) and 752 pound-feet (1,020 Newton-meters) of torque.
- Rolls-Royce Sweptail
Price: $12.8 Million*
Technically the Rolls-Royce Sweptail claimed the title "world's most expensive car" in 2017. Problem is, Rolls-Royce didn't officially confirm that number. It is valued at an estimated $12.8 million. The Rolls-Royce Sweptail took more than four years to develop before its debut at the 2017 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
- Bugatti La Voiture Noire
Price: $12.5 Million
With an astonishing price tag of $12.5 million and a selling price of $18.7 million after taxes, the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire is officially most expensive new car ever. Jaw dropping as you would say. A modern interpretation of Jean Bugatti's personal Type 57 SC Atlantic, the La Voiture Noire uses the same quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine as the Chiron, producing 1,479 horsepower (1,102 kilowatts) and 1,600 Newton-meters (1,180 pound-feet) of torque. It has six – that's right, six exhaust tips, radical new wheels, an aggressive, bespoke fascia, and a gigantic light-up badge out back that shouts out the name of the brand. Of course, this one-of-one Bugatti already has a home.
