When it comes to supercars and hypercars, the same names keep coming up: Bugatti, Ferrari, Koenigsegg and Pagani, to name just a few. Manufacturers who have established themselves year after year as the ultimate in performance and strength.
But that’s not all: the world’s most expensive cars are also made on their production lines. Also because the rule is always the same: the more power, the higher the price.
But which are the most expensive cars in the world? To answer this question, we scoured price lists and configurators from all over the world and filtered out almost 30 cars with a starting price of at least one million euros. In order not to get too long, we limited ourselves to 20 cars. Many of these are produced in the Motor Valley in Italy. Or in Alsace!
Before we start though, we need to be clear on one thing: the prices listed are for new cars, not vintage cars. So you won’t find the Ferrari 250 GTO, which sold a few years ago for 54 million euros. But don’t worry, below you will find more than 100 million euros “spread” over 20 cars. Here we go!
2.6 million euros
As the first and only electric car in the ranking, the Pininfarina Battista belongs to the hypercars Olympus thanks to its 1,900 electric horsepower and breathtaking performance. Just like the price: 2.6 million euros.
2.7 million euros
The Mercedes-AMG One has been in the making for some time. The first official announcement was made in March 2017 and the first prototype debuted at the end of the same year. Then we followed his tests and technical difficulties related to his hybrid powertrain, which is derived from Lewis Hamilton’s Formula 1: 1.6 liter V6, 4 electric motors and (it seems) a total of 1,200 horsepower. When the final version will come is not yet known, but no less than 2.7 million euros will be needed for it.
2.8 million euros
The Aston Martin Valkyrie is on the way to series production, but has already been offered for sale at an (alleged) price of 2.8 million euros. There’s nothing official yet, so it could still go up. In addition to the price, it is the technical data that is particularly impressive: its 6.5-liter Cosworth V12 develops 1,014 hp and 900 Nm of torque and, thanks to an electric motor from Rimac, achieves a total of 1,176 hp. Only 150 cars are produced, plus 25 AMR Pros.
2.9 million euros
The Lamborghini Sian is in many ways a bridge between the past and the future of the house. On the one hand there is the legendary naturally aspirated V12 engine, on the other hand the supercapacitors that make it the first electrified Lamborghini in history. The result is a hypercar with 819 hp and 720 Nm of torque that jumps from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 2.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 350 km / h. Only 63 copies will be built, at a unit price of 2.9 million euros.
3 million euros
The Aston Martin Victor is the British company’s most exclusive project that makes the One-77 (whose chassis it shares) look like an everyday car. With elements derived from other super Astons like the Vulcan, it combines retro styling with breathtaking performance: 848 hp and 883 Nm of torque plus a price tag of almost 3 million euros.
3 million euros
Could the Bugatti brand be missing from this list? Of course not, and we’re starting with the Bolide, a pure combustion hypercar with its majestic W16 as a drive, which has been increased to 1,850 hp and just as many Nm of torque for the occasion. Only one copy was assembled and it will remain unique. It was sold for around 3 million euros.
3 million euros
The closer you get to the summit, the more Bugattis appear on the list of the most expensive cars in the world. Now it is the turn of the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, a special edition of the 3 million euro hypercar from France, in which great attention is paid to aerodynamics and weight reduction. Nothing extreme, but just enough to be even more efficient and to make better use of the 1,500 hp of the quad-turbo W16.
3.4 million euros
More famous for the crazy race it played in Fast & Furious 7 than for its beauty, Lykan Hypersport comes into ours thanks to the 3.4 million euros it took back then (2013) to be able to afford it Ranking list. This is not only due to the performance (3.7-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder with 780 hp and 960 Nm of torque), but also to the titanium LED lights with 420 15-carat diamonds and a holographic display in the center console .
3.66 million euros
Although it is actually based on the Aventador, the Lamborghini Veneno looks very different from the flagship from Sant’Agata. The lines of the car are extremely taut and the naturally aspirated V12 engine has been increased to 750 hp. Each of the 3 copies produced cost 3.66 million euros.
3.76 million euros
Another Pagani Huayra, this time in the BC Roadster version. This model, which is dedicated to Benny Caiola (hence the BC), a friend of Horacio Pagani who died some time ago, was produced in an edition of only 40 copies and has a base price of 3.76 million euros. An astronomical sum for a car that is just as incredible: a weight of only 1,250 kg plus a V12 with 802 hp and 1,050 Nm of torque.
3.9 million euros
Whenever we ask ourselves which is the fastest production car in the world, endless discussions begin: on one side there is the SSC Tuatara with its 455.3 km / h, which was proven in a double run, on the other side the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ that has reached 490.484 km / h, but only in one direction. In any case, the French super sports car is expensive, very expensive: 3.9 million euros.
4.3 million euros
Each of the 2 built Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita costs around 4.3 million euros. A super sports car with more than 1,000 horsepower, which has a technology called “Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave” on its open body. Yes, diamonds combined with carbon fiber to create a very light and shiny body.
5 million euros
A souped-up Pagani Huayra, dedicated for the racetrack (although it can also drive on the road) with heavily modified aerodynamics. It is the 1,246 kg Pagani Imola with the double-charged 6.0 V12 engine from the Huayra and Huayra BC, which has been increased to 827 hp and 1,100 Nm.
5 million euros
Another Bugatti, another Chiron, this time in the much tighter guise of the Bugatti Divo, a more race track suitable (but not as extreme as the Bolide) version of the French hypercar. Reduced by around 34 kg compared to the Chiron, it benefits from refined aerodynamics, while the 1500 hp W16 remains in place. The price? 5 million euros but if you want you can spend 1 million more to get a special color.
8 million euros
Super expensive and super rare: the Mercedes-Maybach Exelero is actually a one-off that was ordered by Fulda (Goodyear’s German subsidiary) to test new tires. Powered by the double-charged V12 with 690 hp and 1,020 Nm, it was later bought by rapper Birdman for 8 million euros.
8 million euros
Before the entry of the Volkswagen Group and the various Veyron and Chiron, there was the Bugatti EB110, Romano Artioli’s dream come true from Campogalliano. The Bugatti Centodieci was presented there two years ago, a tribute to the super sports car of the 1990s. Only 10 copies were produced, all of which have already been sold for 8 million euros.
11 million euros
To this day we don’t know who the owner is, but we do know that he had to pay the proud sum of 11 million euros (excluding taxes) to put the Bugatti La Voiture Noire in his garage. A unique model whose style is reminiscent of the lines of the legendary (and even more expensive) Type 57 SC Atlantic from the 1930s.
13 million euros
If you’re a millionaire, you may be passionate about classic cars, but you may not want to miss out on the convenience of the latest models. How do you do that? No problem, just give Rolls-Royce a call and ask for the special requests department. That’s what an anonymous billionaire did and put the Rolls-Royce Sweptail into the garage for 13 million euros, inspired by the Rolls of the past with the very special rear.
20 million euros
The Pagani myth was born with the Zonda and it has the honor of representing the most expensive car built in San Cesario sul Panaro with this HP Barchetta. The Zonda HP Barchetta, which was developed on the occasion of Horacio’s 60th birthday, has no roof and retains the AMG V12, a 7.3-liter naturally aspirated engine that develops around 800 hp.
23 million euros
This is the current king of all immeasurably expensive new cars: The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, a one-off individualized from top to bottom according to the wishes of its mysterious owner (Jay-Z and Beyonce?). In the trunk there is, for example, a refrigerated compartment for champagne and a special umbrella. The price was never officially announced, but well-informed people put it at 23 million euros.
