1. Sweptail by Rolls Royce – $13 million
Before you gasp at the price, do note that this car is off the markets. That’s because it was made on the recommendations of one specific customer whose name the company has refused to divulge.
A company famous for its luxurious rollouts, there were only 4,000 Rolls Royce cars manufactured in 2016! This particular exclusive car comes with its custom coach work, reminiscent of the royal carriages of yore.
Probably modeled on the Wraith, this car can seat only two people (see what they mean by being exclusive?).
2. Maybach exelero – $10.1 million
Adjusted for inflation, the Exelero would cost around $10.1 million in the U.S. today, which is close to the GDP of a small island nation.
Money and Maybach are about as closely related as peanut butter and jelly, but the two-door further justifies its cost with a 700 hp, twin-turbo V12 and luxurious amenities.
3. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – $4.8 million
The most expensive street-legal production car in the world, this is coated with real diamonds. Yes, you read that right.
‘Trevita’ is an abbreviation translating into ‘three whites’.
Beneath the coating is a 4.8 liter, dual-supercharged V8 having a total output of 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque. This makes it well-equipped at overtaking semis in the freeway.
This car comes with a one-of-its-kind dual carbon rear wing, iconell exhaust system, airbags, ABS powered carbon ceramic brakes, paddle-shift, infotainment system, chronometer instrument cluster, tires monitoring systems along with a hydraulic system.
4. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster – $4.5 million
Built to celebrate the company’s 50th birthday, ‘Veneno’ literally means poison in Spanish, and well, the design does look deadly.
Transmission can spin at 8,400 rpm to yield 740 horsepowers and 507 pound-feet of torque, meaning that the car can do a 60 mph at 2.9 seconds!
The monoque is heavily inspired by the LP700-4 Aventador, and is made of carbon fiber.
The sprung portion is placed on the top of a pushrod-actuated suspension, and its total dryweight of this carbon-fiber vehicle is a mere 3,285 pounds, although it is driven by a full all-wheel-drive system.
5. 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.
6. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio – $3 million
Originally introduced as a concept car in 2013 in memory of a deceased son of the founder of Pininfarina, Each of the handmade units has an all-carbon-fibre frame, and is an open air luxury car with two seats.
Like the Ferrari 458, it has no roof, side windows and windshield, and is 330 pounds lighter than its ancestor. This makes it smarter and quicker, though it has the same naturally-aspirated 4.5 liter F136F V-8 engine, which sends 562 hp to the rear wheels.
7. Bugatti Chiron – $ 2.7 million
Heirs to the Veyron supercars, Bugati’s latest is quite high-priced and starts at around $2.7 million based on the present exchange rates.
So now here is a car handmade in an atelier, faster, more advanced and more powerful than the Veyron.
It is a fine example of the collusion of aerospace and automotive engineering to produce a classic device that could give a speed of 268 mph.
The 8.0 liter turbo-charged W-16, 1,500-horsepower engine is actually 300 more than the Super Sport, the fastest Veyron model. While its top speed has been limited to 261 mph on the road, its actual top speed is yet to be tested.
