With some massive jackpots coming up, it’s time to start imagining how you would spend your millions! Here’s a list of the world’s top 5 most expensive cars for all you petrol heads out there.
Named after the Incan God of Winds, the Pagani Huayra has an AMG-sourced V12 and holds and the fastest road-legal Top Gear lap ever. But Pagani decided to release another beast; the Huayra BC, a lighter version of the Huayra with a 789 horsepower turbocharged engine, made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor show. The Pagani Huayra BC has a massive rear wing that generates just under half a tonne of downforce when it reaches just under 250km/h. The Pagani Huarya BC weighs in at 1.2 tonnes and will cost you a casual US$2,600,000
The Mansory Vivere edition of the Bugatti Veyron is one of the most expensive cars in the world costing you US$3,400,000. It is also one of the fastest cars in the world with a 1,200 horsepower engine that allows it to reach an incredible 408km/h! Fitted with a carbon fibre body, which could easily be classified as a work of art.
The Lykan Hypersport is a machine that has a 3.7-litre, twin turbo flat-six engine which produces 770 horsepower and 708 foot-pounds of torque that will do 0-100km in the short time of 2.8 seconds, and reach a top speed of 386km/h! Let’s talk about the body – this car’s exterior includes jewel-encrusted headlights, scissor doors and a body kit that looks like an armoured tank; the Abu Dhabi police force has even decided to draft it into patrol duty.
The Lamborghini Veneno comes in at number 2 with its US$4,500,000 price tag and a 6.5-liter V12 engine that reaches up to 8,400 rpm. This supercharged Lambo delivers an awesome 740 horsepower and 507 foot-pounds of torque, shooting the car from 0-100km/h in just 2.9 seconds! Not only is it fast, but it is also gorgeous – like something out of a sci-fi movie.
And at number 1 on the list, with only 3 cars ever produced, is the stunning Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita! It is the world’s most expensive street-legal production car costing a whopping US$4,800,000. Why is this car so expensive? First of all, it is literally covered in diamonds! The Swedish manufacturers developed a new lightweight exterior finish called the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave, which means the carbon fibre body is coated with a diamond dust-impregnated resin! Just make sure not to scratch the paint…
Now let’s have a look under the hood. Underneath the luxurious exterior lies a massive dual-supercharged V8 that produces over 1000 horsepower and just under 800 foot-pounds of torque!
