Bugatti La Voiture Noire
Bugatti is a supercar brand for the world’s wealthy and ultra-wealthy. As a result, it is not surprising that the exquisitely crafted products of this car company always cost ten times more than conventional supercars. The Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic was the greatest car of the French sports car brand in the past, with only four cars produced between 1936 and 1938. Inspired by the world’s most coveted Type 57 Atlantic classic, La Voiture, built to commemorate the Bugatti brand’s 100th anniversary, also pays homage to the Bugatti brand’s 100-year history.
Bugatti has unveiled the “La Voiture Noire,” or “the black car,” which is entirely made of carbon fiber. The first Limited Edition car was sold for $19 million to Ferdinand Piech, the owner of the Volkswagen Group. It was designed by Salome Etienne and is based on the Veyron and Chiron, as well as the pre-war Type 57SC Atlantic.
Bugatti La Voiture Noire should be able to reach over 450 km/h thanks to an 8 liter, 16 cylinder engine that produces a jaw-dropping 1,500 HP. Bugatti has refused to reveal any details about its performance. The signature horseshoe-shaped Bugatti grill dominates the front and blends into an aerodynamically swept-back design with sloping windscreen and wrap-around tail lamps.
Price: $19 million
Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta
HP Barchetta, with its distinct design, adds to the incredible legacy of the Pagani Zonda. Horacio Pagani, the founder of Pagani Automobili, dubbed this magnificent edition of the Zonda the Barchetta because of its clever resemblance to a ‘little boat.’ The car’s blue-tinted frame is made entirely of carbon fiber. The chassis is made of a material called ‘Carbo Titanium,’ according to Pagani. The car, made ultralight by the material, provides its driver with a thrilling experience of speed.
Though Pagani has never officially released the vehicle’s performance specifications, some sources believe the supercar has a top speed of 338 km/h. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. At its tallest point, this open-top convertible supercar stands only 21 inches tall. It has a massive ventilated 380mm disc on all four corners and six-piston calipers to wipe the speed and slow the car down.
It is the most expensive car on this list, with a price tag of $17.5 million. However, chances are you won’t be able to get your hands on the car because only three of these vehicles will be produced. And, needless to say, all three are already booked. One of the models has been reserved by the founder Pagani as a gift for his 60th birthday.
Price: $17.5 million
Sweptail by Rolls Royce
Before you get too excited about the price, keep in mind that this vehicle is no longer available on the market. That’s because it was based on the recommendations of a single customer, the identity of whom the company has refused to reveal. Rolls Royce, a company known for its luxurious rollouts, only produced 4,000 cars in 2016!
This particular exclusive car features custom coachwork reminiscent of royal carriages from the past. Sweptail by Rolls Royce, which is most likely based on the Wraith, can only seat two people. According to the customer’s specifications, the sunroof is fully panoramic, tapering down sharply like those on racing yachts.
The hidden attaché cases for holding laptops behind each door are a very cool feature of the interior handcrafted with wood and leather. There isn’t much else to say about the world’s most expensive car, except that it’s based on models from the 1920s and 1930s and looks like a yacht from the back. The owner happens to be a superyacht and private plane collector.
Price: $13 million
The car’s design is heavily influenced by Romano Artioli’s iconic EB110, a supercar manufactured in the early 1990s. Centodieci is intended to serve as a modern interpretation of shape and technology while retaining the charm and character of EB110. Its angular silhouette, glass engine cover, small horseshoe grille, and air vents are influenced by the EB110. The absence of the C-shaped pillar gives this car an even more unique appearance. Centodieci’s aerodynamics allow for dynamic lateral acceleration.
The supercar’s distinct modern aesthetic compensates for its slightly lower top speed (379khp) than the Bugatti Chiron. Centodieci weighs 44 pounds less than the Bugatti Chiron. The car’s interior strikes the perfect balance between sportiness and luxury. The luxurious interior of the Centodieci includes many features such as flat-bottom steering wheels, blue controls, a premium sound system, and a cooled glovebox.
Price: $9 million
Maybach Exelero, a German luxury car manufacturer, is known for its unusual design and $8 million price tag. There has only ever been one model of the car produced. The Maybach Exelero combines the sophistication and quality of high-end limousines.
The V-12 twin-turbo engine produces 725 pounds of torque at 2500 RPM. The engine, which is angled at sixty degrees, has 12 valves and three cylinders each. Exelero has a top speed of 218mph and can go from 0 to 62mph in 4.4 seconds.
The car was commissioned by a tire company that wanted to put its new tire family to the test. Needless to say, Exelero tires are of exceptional quality. Each tire has a code that specifies its dimensions and limitations. The car also has ABS to keep the wheels from locking up while braking. The car’s interior is adorned with dark and red leather, neoprene, and glossy black carbon fiber.
The Mercedes-Maybach Exelero was featured in a music video by rapper Jay-Z. And rapper Birdman owns the only model of this car.
Price: $8 million
Bugatti Divo followed the enormous success of the Chiron, but with exotic and much more exclusive specifications. According to the designers, the Bugatti Divo is the most agile and dynamic car they’ve ever created. At top speed, the car produces 456kg of downforce. The extra drag created by the aerodynamic elements has reduced Divo’s top speed to 236 mhp, which is 25mph slower than Chiron’s. Divo’s 1500 horsepower propels it from 0 to 62 mph in 2.4 seconds.
While the Chiron focuses on top speed, the Divo emphasizes agility and driving dynamics. The car’s redesigned exhaust system includes quad exhaust pipes and a retractable rear wing. Divo has a NACA duct on the roof that channels air to the rear of the car to provide more downforce. The car also has improved radiator cooling for the brakes, which is accomplished through the use of two vents, one on the bonnet and the other on the front wheel arches.
Inside, the steering wheel is trimmed in soft faux suede. The interior is also outfitted with Alcantara upholstery. The storage lockers and center console have been removed to save weight. Throughout the interior, carbon-fiber trim has been used. The Divo retains Chiron’s quad-turbocharged W16 engine. The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission has also been kept.
Price: $6 million
Pagani Huayra Imola
A large seven-section diffuser, a large roof scoop, more defined side-skirts, a shark fin, and integrated spotlights are among the car’s spectacular features. The massive wing installed at the back of the car gives it a more aggressive appearance. To save weight, the engineers created a one-of-a-kind paint finish. They changed the geometry of the design to give the car ultimate suspension. To keep the car stable under hard acceleration and braking, they installed active dampers and a front-lift system.
The Huayra Imola also has an upgraded Brembo brake package and Pirelli Trofeo R tires. Pagani Huayra Imola would only be produced in five examples. Each one costs a whopping $5.4 million.
Price: $5.4 million
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is the most expensive street-legal production car in the world, and it is covered in genuine diamonds. Yes, you read that correctly. ‘Trevita’ is an abbreviation that means ‘three whites.’ The carbon fibers are indeed coated with the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave, a diamond dust-impregnated resin. This technology transformed the fibres from traditional black to gleaming, silvery white, making the bodywork of this car renowned throughout the world for its one-of-a-kind design and perfection.
And that isn’t all. A 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 engine with a total output of 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque sits beneath the coating. As a result, it is well-suited for overtaking semis on the freeway. This vehicle features a one-of-a-kind dual carbon rear wing, an iconell exhaust system, airbags, ABS-powered carbon ceramic brakes, a paddle-shift, infotainment system, a chronometer instrument cluster, tire monitoring systems, and a hydraulic system.
Only three cars of this model were initially planned, before being reduced to two due to the carbon fiber making regular production too difficult and time-consuming.
Price: $4.8 million
Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Designed to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary, ‘Veneno’ literally means poison in Spanish, and the design does appear lethal. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, which resembles an alien space capsule, can reach speeds that can literally give one of those a run for their money. The 6.5-liter V12 engine, coupled with a seven-speed single clutch ISR automated manual transmission, can spin at 8,400 rpm to produce 740 horsepower and 507 pound-feet of torque, allowing the car to reach 60 mph in 2.9 seconds!
The monoque is made of carbon fiber and is heavily inspired by the LP700-4 Aventador. The sprung portion is mounted on top of a pushrod-actuated suspension, and the total dry weight of this carbon-fiber vehicle is only 3,285 pounds, despite being driven by a full all-wheel-drive system.
With only 9 units produced, the main issue with these cars is their exorbitant resale values—one was sold for $11 million! When it was first introduced, it was the most expensive car ever produced in the world, and with only three available to customers in the first batch, there was a mad dash to get your hands on the remaining ones.
Price: $4.5 million
McLaren P1 LM
The tenth one in the 15 most expensive cars in the world that Toplist would like to introduce to you is the McLaren P1 LM. McLaren P1 LM is more or less a street-legal version of the track-only McLaren P1 GTR, converted by the British firm Lanzante, who purchased the original P1 built by McLaren, and was made with a select group of buyers in the United States in mind. The United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates are among the countries involved.
This car shares many similarities with the P1 GTR and the legendary McLaren F1 road car. For instance, the gold plating that surrounds the engine bay, which houses a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8. It is much smarter than the P1 GTR because it not only weighs 132 pounds (60 kg) less than the P1 GTR, but its modified rear wing and enlarged front splitter combine with the dive planes to generate 40% more downforce than the P1 GTR.
The awesomeness of the aerodynamics can be seen where it is meant to be seen- on the track, where it can produce 1000 horsepower. To date, only five units have been built, with all of them being sold.
Price: $3.6 million
The eleventh one in the 15 most expensive cars in the world that Toplist would like to introduce to you is Lykan Hypersport. Lykan Hypersport is surprised that the headlights are made of, uh, 240 15-carat diamonds? Then there are the LED blades, which are made of 420 15-carat diamonds. And all of the gems can be customized.
This is the first Arab supercar, built by W Motors in Lebanon. And it holds its own when compared to the traditional European behemoths. Aside from its stunning looks, the twin-turbo mid-rear mounted 3.8 liter flat-six boxer produces 780 horsepower and 708 pound-feet of torque through the rear wheels. It can hit 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and reach speeds of up to 240 mph.
Price: $3.4 million
Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron by Masory Vivere
The Mansory Vivere edition of the Bugatti Veyron, which has been upgraded four times since its release in 2005, is not only one of the most expensive cars in the world, but also one of the fastest.
This German car is based on the Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster and features an awesome lacquered carbon-fibre body as well as a new spoiler package that includes new diffusers, a smarter cabin and front grill, larger side scoops, a shortened hood, and other features. The upgraded LED lights can be found throughout the vehicle, including the headlight and taillight clusters, as well as the cockpit.
For the aesthetically-minded, maps of historic events such as the Targa Florio race are laser etched into both the upholstered, carbon fiber interior and the exterior. The car’s 8.0 liter W16 engine produces 1,200 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. The original version had a top speed of 253 mph and was named Car of the Decade 2000-2009.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
While no price has been announced for the Aston Martin Valkyrie, expert estimates place it at around 3.2 million dollars. This model is a renovation of the old Aston Martin-Red Bull AM-RB 001 and was built under Andy Palmer, the new president of Aston Martin who is committed to solvency and relevance with awesome cars.
According to legend, Palmer agreed to this car over a drink with Adrian Newey and Christian Horner of Red Racing. Newey, the renowned aerodynamicist behind Red Bull’s expensive and award-winning Formula 1 sports cars, created an aerodynamic scheme specifically for this car that pushes air through the chassis, resulting in downforce without the use of wings.
The 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V-12 engine, designed specifically for the Cosworth, has a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio and is paired with a Rimac-built hybrid battery system that produces around 1,000 horsepower. The company has so far planned 150 units of this model, with deliveries expected to begin in 2019. In addition, 25 track-only editions are planned, the prices of which are unknown at this time.
Price: $3.2 million
Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio
The next one in the 15 most expensive cars in the world that Toplist would like to introduce to you is Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio. Originally introduced as a concept car in 2013 in memory of a deceased son of the founder of Pininfarina, the legendary Italian design house, only six of these cars have been produced to date, making them one of the most sought-after vehicles. This is one of the most expensive Ferraris ever built, based on the Ferrari 458 Spider.
Each handcrafted unit is an open-air luxury car with two seats and an all-carbon-fibre frame. It, like the Ferrari 458, lacks a roof, side windows, and a windshield, and it weighs 330 pounds less than its predecessor. Despite having the same naturally-aspirated 4.5 liter F136F V-8 engine that delivers 562 hp to the rear wheels, it is smarter and faster. The newly renovated interior also includes a slew of intriguing details, such as aerodynamic headrests built directly into the roll cage.
The most interesting aspect of this car is that the owners of each of the six models were chosen by the manufacturers themselves, making it one of the rarest of the rare invite-only vehicles.
Price: $3 million
Pagani Huayra BC
Following the Pagani Huayra, the Pagani Huayra BC is the most expensive Pagani vehicle ever produced. This car is a tribute to Benny Caiola, a noted Italian investor with possibly the best collection of Ferraris and a close friend of Horacio Pagani. It is a delight for fans of Pagani’s details.
Pagani Huayra BC, which made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, has a wider rear track, new side tracks, and a slew of cool aero features. The BC’s 6.0 liter V-12 bi-turbo engine, like the previous version, is sourced from AMG and produces 790 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of torque. This power is transferred to the rear wheels via the tripod drive shafts and a 7-speed Xtrac transmission. The most incredible part is that the BC takes over the Huayra by reducing the model’s standard 150 milliseconds to 75 milliseconds.
Due to the extensive use of carbon fibers and other lightweight materials, the BC weighs 2,685 pounds (1,218 kilograms) less than the Huayra.
Price: $2.8 millions
