The most expensive cars on the planet are something more than simple means of transportation. These are genuinely startling machines, aside from the lifestyle criticisms. A few names jump to mind when it comes to high-end hypercars: Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Pagani, and Ferrari, to name a few. These firms have established themselves as the leaders in the supercar and hypercar industries, offering their wealthiest customers the world’s fastest, rarest, most beautiful, and, in this case, most luxurious automobiles. In this post, we talk about multi-million dollar cars as if it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Take a look at the top 10 most expensive cars in the world for 2021 right now!
It is the most expensive hypercar on our list. The 250 GTO won the Tour de France Automobile in 1964, marking Ferrari’s ninth consecutive victory in the series. Just 36 of these cars were manufactured between 1962 and 1963, and the one that is the most expensive in the world, at an incredible $70,000,000, won both the Tour de France and the Le Mans. According to Ferrari historian Marcel Massini, the car was purchased by an American businessman, who considered it one of the world’s best three or four GTOs. Its maximum speed of 174 mph and acceleration of 0-100kph (0-60mph) in 6.1 seconds isn’t enough to pique the interest of today’s car enthusiasts. However, it was the cheapest car in the world in the 1960s, and it is still by far the most luxurious car in the world today, decades later.
When Bugatti unveiled their new supercar in 2019, they made a genius naming call. It was the most luxurious new vehicle on the market for two years. Two years have passed, and no one has yet to unleash an exotic luxury car capable of dethroning La Voiture Noire. It wins the award of a most luxurious new vehicle for the second year running. The one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire is reportedly the most elegant new vehicle ever, with a price of $12.5 million and a retail price of $18.7 million after taxes. And that’s understandable. The La Voiture Noire, a modern interpretation of Jean Bugatti’s personal Type 57 SC Atlantic, is powered by the same quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine that powers the Chiron and produces 1,479 horsepower and 1,600 Newton-meters of torque.
Zonda HP Barchetta was given this name – Barchetta – because it reminded Horatio Pagani of a ‘little sail’ in Italian. Its chassis is entirely made of carbon fiber, giving it an ultra-light body and a zippy, fast feel; it’s blue-tinted, has a small windshield, and stands just 21 inches tall (0.5 meters) at its tallest point. Unfortunately, the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta is also the most luxurious vehicle you won’t be able to get. Just three cars of this one-of-a-kind Zonda were ever made. One of these cars sold for $17.6 million the last time it was sold.
In 2017, the Rolls-Royce Sweptail held the distinction of “most costly vehicle in the world.” The issue is that Rolls-Royce has yet to validate the figure. However, if reports are correct, the one-off Sweptail outpriced the Bugatti Centodieci by $5 million. Until making its debut at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the Rolls-Royce Sweptail took more than four years to build. Though the Ghost is listed as the ultra-luxury brand’s entry-level model, it still has all of the trappings of a luxurious, strong car that one will expect at its price point. It has power-operated doors, a luxurious cabin, and plenty of space for the pilot, passengers, and even storage.
Just ten of Bugatti’s Centodieci hypercars is produced in 2021. Despite the high price, each has found a happy buyer. Bugatti, known for its unique bodywork and luxury comfort features, has gone to great lengths to make the Centodieci unforgettable. It might not be the fastest Bugatti on the road with a 1577-hp quad-turbo W-16, but it is the fastest accelerating. Bugatti pays tribute to the EB110, a supercar built in the early 1990s, with this vehicle. Its distinct fashion cues might not win over anyone, but you won’t have to think about finding another one on the lane. With a price tag of just $9 million, the Centodiece is one of the unique vehicles ever made.
The Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero, like many others before it, is a one-of-a-kind car. The Exelero was created in 2004 by Fulda, a German subsidiary of Goodyear, to test its new tires. Mercedes based the Exelero on the Maybach’s chassis and equipped it with the same twin-turbo V12 engine that generates 690 horsepower (510 kilowatts) and 752 pound-feet (1,020 Newton-meters) of torque. The top speed is reported as 218 miles per hour (350 kilometers per hour), and the Exelero will cost more than $10 million today if adjusted for inflation.
The Divo is a team favorite of Bugatti’s newly unveiled cars. The Divo has a lot going to justify the extra money, even though it has a lot in common with its cheaper sister, the Chiron. Bugatti made the Divo 77 pounds lighter than the Chiron by installing more lightweight tires, a carbon-fiber intercooler, and eliminating any sound deadening. There will only be 40 Divos made and sold. Each has already been claimed. Improved suspension, a much thinner frame for faster speed, and a redesigned dorsal fin are among the changes. Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived: Bugatti will build 40 cars, each costing $5.8 million.
This year in Geneva, Koenigsegg unveiled the Jesko, the “most affordable” edition. The $4.8 million diamond-coated CCXR Trevita, on the other hand, is on the other end of the Koenigsegg market range. The Koenigsegg is powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V8 with 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque and is finished in a patented Diamond Weave finish (basically carbon fiber coated in diamonds). The CCX was only built in three examples until it was discontinued for good.
Between 2014 and 2015, Lamborghini produced only 14 Venenos based on the Aventador. Based on the features, each one costs about $4.5 million. Lamborghini installed a more potent version of the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V12 engine under the hood, which now produces 740 horsepower (552 kilowatts) and 509 pound-feet (609 Newton-meters) of torque, allowing it to sprint to 60 mph. It is the most luxurious Lamborghini ever built.
Bugatti drew the automobile community’s attention earlier this year when it announced a revamped version of the Chiron had broken the 300 mph barrier. The Super Sport 300 + is a road-legal version of the car created to commemorate the event. The Super Sport 300+, limited to only 30 units, is a stunning Chiron version, with fluid, slippery bodywork and a sweet stripe motif. Despite the term, Bugatti is restricting each car’s top speed to “only” 277 mph. This year, production will begin.
