There are many amazing cars out there that are appealing and unique because they are powerful and flashy. They have plenty of luxury features too. However, these also come with some extremely high costs.
Most Expensive Cars in the World
When it comes to automobiles, some cars are just more valuable than others. From limited production runs to rare vintage models, the world has seen some of the most expensive cars ever sold. These vehicles are often considered not only as status symbols but also as works of art. Whether they’re owned by billionaires or museums, the most expensive cars in the world have captured the attention of automotive enthusiasts and collectors alike. Here are the most expensive cars in history.
Lamborghini Veneno – $3.9 million
The Veneno has a 6.5L V12 engine that can get up to 220 mph on the highway. The inside has a carbon fiber design with lightweight bucket seats and a unique woven carbon fiber material called Carbon Skin that will cover the cockpit and make it warm and inviting. It also has a good power-to-weight ratio at 1.93 kg/hp, thus keeping the drag from being a threat to its performance. However, only three of them are being made and all of them have been sold even before it could reach the showroom floor. This makes it one of the most expensive cars in history.
W Motors Lykan Hypersport – $3.4 million
This W Motors vehicle was designed in the Middle East, a novelty among other cars. It has LED headlights with diamonds on their borders and a 750 horsepower 3.7L flat-six engine. Lykan can reach speeds of 245 mph. It can also go from 0 to 62 mph in about 2.8 seconds. It also has a very low curb weight at about 3,042 pounds, thus making it capable of moving around efficiently and without much drag.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – $2.4 million
The Bugatti Veyron has long been known for being incredibly expensive. The SuperSport can go 267.8 mph thanks to its 8.0L V16 engine. It also works at 1200 horsepower, thus making it a whole lot more powerful than other vehicles. This vehicle can only go to about 258 mph out of the concern that extremely fast speeds can cause this vehicle to break down as the tires can wear out.

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse – $2 million
