When it comes to dream hypercars, the names that come to mind are always the same: Bugatti, Ferrari, Koenigsegg and Pagani, among others. Manufacturers who, year after year, have established themselves as the ultimate in terms of performance and power.
But that’s not all: their production lines also produce the most expensive cars in the world . Also because the rule is always the same: the higher the power, the higher the prices.
But what are the most expensive cars in the world ? To answer this question, we sifted through price lists and configurators around the world, to extract almost 30 cars with a starting price set at at least one million euros . In order not to take too long, we limited ourselves to 20 cars. Many of which are produced in Motor Valley, Italy. Or in Alsace !
Before we begin, however, we must clarify something: the prices indicated relate to the new price , and not the estimates during auctions. You will therefore not find the Ferrari 250 GTO, part a few years ago at 54 million euros. But don’t worry, below you will find more than 100 million euros “spread” over 20 cars. Let’s go !
2.6 million euros
First and only electric car in the ranking, the Pininfarina Battista is part of the Olympus of hypercars thanks to its 1900 electric hp and its breathtaking performance. Just like the price: 2.6 million euros.
2.7 million euros
The Mercedes-AMG One has been announced for quite some time now. The first official announcement dates back to March 2017, the debut of the first prototype came at the end of the same year. Then we followed his tests and his mechanical difficulties linked to his hybrid engine derived from Lewis Hamilton’s Formula 1: 1.6 liter V6, 4 electric motors and (it seems) 1200 hp in total. It is not yet known when the final version will arrive, but no less than 2.7 million euros will be needed to obtain it.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
2.8 million euros
The Aston Martin Valkyrie is on the way, but it has already gone on sale for the (supposed) price of 2.8 million euros. There is nothing official yet and it could therefore climb. But, apart from the price, it is the technical data that impresses: its 6.5-liter V12 from Cosworth develops 1014 hp and 900 Nm of torque and, thanks to an electric motor from Rimac, reaches a total of 1176 hp. Only 150 cars will be produced, with 25 more AMR Pro units.
2.9 million euros
The Lamborghini Sian represents, in many ways, a bridge between the past and the future of the House of Taurus. On one side there is the legendary atmospheric V12, on the other there are the supercapacitors that make it the first electrified Lamborghini in history. The result is a hypercar with 819 hp, 720 Nm of torque and which goes from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of 350 km/h. Only 63 copies will be built, for a price of 2.9 million euros.
3 million euros
The Aston Martin Victor is the most exclusive project ever made by the British company, enough to make the One-77 (which it shares the chassis) look like an everyday car. With elements derived from other super Astons such as the Vulcan, it combines retro style with breathtaking performance: 848 hp and 883 Nm of torque and a price of almost 3 million euros.
3 million euros
Could the Bugatti brand be missing from this list? Of course not and we start with the Bolide, a strictly endothermic hypercar with its majesty W16 to move it, increased for the occasion to 1,850 hp and as many Nm of torque. We saw (and heard) it live at the Milan Monza Motor Show, where it made its first official appearance. Only one copy was assembled – and it will remain unique – and it was sold for around 3 million euros.
Bugatti Chiron Pure Sport
3 million euros
The closer you get to the top, the more Bugatti appear on the list of the most expensive cars in the world. Now it’s the turn of the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, a special edition of the 3 million euro French hypercar, which pays great attention to aerodynamics and weight reduction. Nothing extreme, but just enough to be even more efficient and make even better use of the 1500 hp of the quad-turbo W16.
W Motors Lykan Hypersport
3.4 million euros
More famous for the crazy ride it stars in Fast & Furious 7 than for its beauty, the Lykan Hypersport enters the rankings thanks to the 3.4 million euros required at the time (2013) to offer it. . It’s not just down to the performance (3.7-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder producing 780bhp and 960Nm of torque), but also the titanium LED lights housing 420 15-carat diamonds and a holographic display in the console. central.
While it’s actually based on the Aventador, the Lamborghini Veneno has a very different look to Sant’Agata’s flagship. exceptional performances and 3.66 million euros for each of the 3 examples produced.
Pagani Huayra Roadster BC
3.76 million euros
Another Pagani Huayra, this time in BC Roadster version. Dedicated to Benny Caiola, a friend of Horacio Pagani who died some time ago, only 40 of this model were produced with a base price set at 3.76 million euros. An astronomical sum for an equally incredible car: a weight of only 1250 kg, and a V12 of 802 hp and 1050 Nm of torque.
Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+
3.9 million euros
Whenever we ask ourselves what is the fastest production car in the world, we start endless discussions: on the one hand, there is the
8 million euros
Super expensive and super rare: the Mercedes-Maybach Exelero is actually a unique piece ordered by Fulda (German subsidiary of Goodyear) to test new tires. Powered by the biturbo V12 of 690 hp and 1,020 Nm, it was then bought by rapper Birdman for 8 million euros.
8 million euros
Before Volkswagen and the various Veyrons and Chirons, there was the Bugatti EB110, Romano Artioli’s dream come true at Campogalliano. This is where the Bugatti Centodieci was presented 2 years ago, a tribute to the supercar of the 90s and produced in 10 copies, all of which have already sold for 8 million euros.
Bugatti The Black Car
11 million euros
We still do not know who its owner is, but we do know that he had to pay the handsome sum of 11 million euros (excluding taxes) to put in his garage the Bugatti La Voiture Noire, a unique model whose style recalls the lines of the legendary Type 57 SC Atlantic of the 1930s.
13 million euros
If you’re a millionaire, you have an inordinate passion for classic cars, but you don’t want to give up the comfort of the latest models. How do you do ? No problem, just call Rolls-Royce and ask for the special order service. This is what an anonymous billionaire did who, in exchange for 13 million euros, put the Rolls- Royce Sweptail, inspired by the Rolls of the past with this very special stern.
Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta
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. Model created to celebrate Horacio”s 60th birthday, the Zonda HP Barchetta did not roof and retains the AMG V12, a naturally aspirated 7.3-liter engine developing around 800 HP.
Rolls Royce Boat Tail
23 million euros
When it comes to extreme customisation, Rolls-Royce has little to learn from other builders and it has proven it – once again – with the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, a custom one-off from from top to bottom according to the wishes of its mysterious owner (Jay-Z and Beyonce?). For example, in the trunk there is a refrigerated compartment for champagne and a special umbrella. The price was never announced, but well-informed people speak of 23 million euros.
