As cars get more exotic they get more expensive. The average consumer can not afford a million dollar supercar but that doesn’t mean we are not interested in what only few can afford and what many dream of. Here is our list of the 2013 Top Ten Most Expensive Cars in the world. From record breakers to pure automotive luxury paradise. In this list we do not include, concept, modded, or track-only cars, only street legal production cars. We only include cars that can be bought on the market now and not cars that were bought in sold in the past.
1. Lamborghini Veneno – $3.9 million
|Engine:||6.5-Liter Naturally-Aspirated V12||Transmission:||7-Speed ISR Robotized Manual|
|Top Speed:||221mph||Weight:||3,190 lbs (1,450 kg)|
|0-60 mph:||2.8 seconds||Power||750 hp|
It seems as if companies continue to have no limits when they put a price tag on a car, especially with a world full of oil millionairess and rich collectors who will do anything for a rare exotic super car. The Lamborghini Veneno has just recently raised a bar that will most likely never stop rising. Revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the Veneno (which in Spanish means “poison”) celebrates 50th anniversary of Lamborghini as a car maker.
Though the Veneno is mainly used for the track, we have included it on our list for the Worlds Most Expensive Cars because it is street legal. Lamborghini went ahead and upgraded the Aventador’s 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 to produce 750 horsepower and strapped in a seven-speed ISR robotized manual gearbox which is then connected to an all-wheel drive system. Top speed is claimed to be 221 mph and a 0-60 is projected to be around 2.8 seconds.
So how much does a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and carbon-fiber-reinforced-polymer bat-mobile cost? How about $3.9 million (3 million euros or 2.6 million pounds) and only 3 will be made and sold. All of them are already sold, so chances of ever seeing one, is slim to none.
2. W Motors Lykan Hypersport – $3.4 million
|Engine Type:||6-cylinder twin-turbocharged||Transmission:||———-|
|Top Speed:||245 mph (unverified)||Weight:||———-|
|0-60 mph:||2.7 (unverified)||Power||750 hp|
Beirut, Lebanon-based automaker, W Motors has stunned the world at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show when they released their first supercar the Lykan Hypersport. It was relatively almost unheard until Qatar. For many years the Bugatti Veyron SS has held the top spot for the world’s most expensive car for good reason. Now though, the Lykan has surpassed the Veyron SS. It may not be the fastest car out there or the quickest, but it sure takes luxury to a whole new level.With a price tag that high, the supercar should be lined with diamonds, and in some parts it actually is. The Lykan will come with diamond-coated LED lights, a gold-plated hood, a carbon-fiber chassis,and gold-stitched leather seats . If this is some how not enough, W Motors will be giving out a Special Edition Cyrus Klepcys Watch valued at $200,000, to the lucky owners. Who would actually buy this car? Well surprisingly as of early 2013, sources say that W Motors have received more than 100 orders.
The Lykan Hypersport is the second worlds most expensive car. The Lykan sure looks amazing but will it perform as good as it looks? We will soon find out.
