The World’s Most Expensive Cars

March 31, 2014

The title of the world’s most expensive car is a tricky one to award, with numerous classic cars going at auction for millions. Cars belonging to celebrities or involved in well known events and races have gone for inflated prices at auction as collectors items.

The most expensive car to ever be sold was a 1963 Ferrari GTO. The car was previously owned by collector Paul Pappalardo and was sold to a private collector for a cool £32 million in 2013. Before you go checking under the dust sheet in your nan’s garage, only 39 GTOs were made. Their timeless style, racing history and rarity are what make them so valuable as collectors’ items.

Now let’s get onto production cars – for a lucky few, the following list is an achievable dream. So let’s get down to it – the world’s most disgustingly expensive cars, each more beautiful than the last. Warning: envy sufferers, avert your eyes.

Lamborghini Veneno £3.3 million

You’d be forgiven for confusing the Veneno with the Batmobile – in fact, we think it would kick the Batmobile’s ass. Lamborghini have taken the title of the most expensive production car in the world with the £3.3 million Veneno. If you fancy getting your hands on this beast, join the queue – Lamborghini are only producing three Veneno’s per year. ‘Veneno’ is a Spanish word and translates to ‘venom’ – and this car certainly has bite. The V12 engine puts out 750 bhp and this hyper-car will do 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of over 220 mph!

Lycan Hypersport £2.1 million

Dubai based automaker W Motors have produced a supercar to try and compete with established legends in the market, such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bugatti. Before you dismiss the Hypersport, take a look at the figures. The car is powered by a Porsche flat-six turbocharged engine, which has been honed by manic Porsche tuning house RUF to produce a staggering 750 bhp!

W Motors claim the Hypersport will do 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 245 mph. The price tag is further inflated by its exclusivity, as only 7 Lycans will be produced each year.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport £1.7 million

First launched in 2005, the Bugatti Veyron has gained holy grail status amongst car enthusiasts. Firmly owning the title of the fastest road legal production car in the world, the Veyron can pretty much outstrip anything in a straight line. The Bugatti does something its competitors can’t, combining practicality and real world driveability to insane speed and performance when you put your foot down. At road speeds, the Veyron is refined, quiet and luxurious, while its competitors are stripped out racing cars with bucket seats and rock hard suspension. The Super Sport edition of the Veyron uses an 8 litre W12 quad turbo engine to produce an unfathomable 1180 bhp. The Bugatti will do 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and is capable of such high speeds that it has to be electronically limited to 258 mph for safety.

Aston Martin One-77 £1.2 million

The Aston Martin One-77 is doing Britain proud and flying the flag in the supercar market amongst its many Italian competitors. The One-77 is a truly refined supercar for the gentlemen among us – it does have the James Bond stamp of approval, after all. Don’t be fooled by its civilised looks, the Aston Martin is a savage under the bonnet, with a 7.3 litre V12 putting out 750 bhp. The One-77 will do 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 220 mph. Only 77 of the Aston Martins are being produced (hence the name) and the waiting list is sure to be long.
