From Bugatti Chiron with price tag $2,7 million to Rolls Royce Sweeptail for $13 million.
The world’s most expensive cars don’t only highlight a status of automotive manufacturers but also are personal cars of some billionaires and celebrities.
A car is not just a mode of conveyance, but also a piece of art cherished, even decades after its production. Big names like Lamborghini, Aston Martin and of course, Rolls Royce often come at very high prices and are only meant for rich collectors as many of them are often sold out before they reach the public.
While most of the cars are wildly out of the reach for most, it is a sheer pleasure just to look at them.
Let’s see the top 5 most expensive cars in the world:
5. LYKAN HYPERSPORT – $3.4 MILLION
The headlights of this car is made of, urm, 240 15-carat diamonds, and the LED blades are made of 420 15-carat diamonds. And all the gems are customizable.
Looking like an armored car with scissor doors and an interior straight out of a sci-fi movie, this featured in the ‘Furious 7’, and has actually been drafted by the Abu Dhabi police for patrol duty!
Built by W Motors, based in Lebanon, this is the first Arab supercar. And it doesn’t fare badly when compared with the traditional European biggies. Apart from its awesome looks, the twin-turbo mid-rear mounted 3.8 liter flat-six boxer can produce 780 horsepower through the rear wheels, and a 708 pound-feet of torque. It can do a 62 in a mere 2.8 seconds, and can reach speeds up to 240 mph.
4. MCLAREN P1 LM – $3.6 MILLION
Not a production car, this is more or less a street-legal version of the track-only McLaren P1 GTR. Converted by the British firm Lanzante, who bought the original P1 built by McLaren, it was made keeping in mind a select group of buyers in the U. S., Japan, U. K., and the UAE.
This car has a lot in common with the P1 GTR and the legendary McLaren F1 road car. For example, the gold plating surrounding the engine bay with a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V-8. It is much smarter than the P1 GTR.
Not only does it weigh 132 pounds (60 kg0 less than the P1 GTR, but its modified rear wing and enlarged front splitter join with the dive planes to generate 40% increased downforce as compared to the P1 GTR.
The awesomeness of the aerodynamics can be witnessed where it is made for- on track, where it can produce 1000 horsepower. As of yet, only five units have been built, all of them being sold.
