15 most luxurious and expensive cars are from Bugatti, Ferrari and Aston Martin. Find out which ones here!
You hear about winning the lottery or someone handing you over $500 million, the first thought that comes to mind is to buy a lavish house or the most expensive car. These things are an outward look towards your worth and personality. Hence it’s no wonder that everyone dreams of their dream car and for most of us these cars cost more than our existence.
Companies aim to provide high-tech and futuristic innovations modeled into their cars. The ones that really blow our minds are the ones that exceed our budgets. However, it is still fun to know about what these companies are up to, and which company has secured the spot for manufacturing the most expensive car. Their rivalries to always come out on the top and be the best are intriguing on their own.
Here is an updated compilation of all the most expensive cars and a bit about what the companies such as Bugatti, Ferrari, and Pagani have been up to. What are the cars that are so out of our league that they make us question our existence? Here is a list of the top 15 most expensive cars, counting down to the most expensive car in the world.
15. Maserati MC20: $200,000
Maserati has collaborated with an expert motorsport engineering company to build the Maserati MC20. It is a mid-engine sports car that has a 630-hp twin-turbo V-6 – for now and it is expected that will be made all-electric in the future. The MC20 is given a carbon-fiber structure and aluminum subframe to keep it sturdy yet light. The Maserati MC20 has a top speed of over 200mph (or 321 kph), and its acceleration from 0-100kph (0-60mph) is less than three seconds.
The MC in the MC20 stands for Maserati Corse which could be a subtle hint that the company might revert back to manufacturing fast-tracked and highly anticipated race cars. The company has a prototype of the model roaming around in Italy to amp up the excitement for the release of their MC20.
14. Bentley Flying Spur Speed: $215,000
Unlike most supercars, the Bentley Flying Spur 2021, provide high-end comfort in that little cabin than just high performance and good looks. The car’s interior is lined with highly-polished wood, glinting metal accents and a top-of-the-line infotainment center. In addition to this, the car has Bentley’s signature expansive grille and four-headlight design. It has a top speed of 207mph (or 330kph) which is the highest a car of this category has recorded. It also goes to 0-100 kph (0-60mph) in 3.7 seconds.
The interesting factor here is that the car is built to be more athletic than it seems, maybe because of its freakishly good looks. Despite the fact that it is equipped with an entry-level 500-level hp motor or the more amped-up 600-level motor and for a car of its size, it provides exceptional performance. The drawback of the Bentley is fuel consumption; it is not very hefty or economical when it comes to that. But if you can afford the $215,000 vehicle, I am sure paying for gas might not be much of a concern.
13. Aston Martin Lagonda EV: $250,000
Aston Martin aims to destroy the duopoly between Rolls Royce and the Bentley and their extremely lavish competition of sedans with the Lagonda EV 2021. Aston Martin also aspires to appeal to the car enthusiasts who have the taste for the Tesla features as well. Loranda is the brand Aston martin tried to make the world familiar with twice before, in the 30s and the 80s, and with its EV Sedan he hopes to write it down in history.
The car is equipped with wind-whipped silhouette and a battery-powered Aston Rapid-E motor that seeks to provide as much power as a V-12. Sounds really fancy but it is also rumored that Bentley and Rolls Royce are going to drop competitors for the Lagonda EV which will give the car enthusiasts a very expensive show to watch.
12. Rolls Royce Ghost: $315,000
For their entry in the lavish Sedan competition, Rolls Royce Ghost 2021 is it and it is as beautiful as it gets. It is considered an entry-level model but it still provides enough comfort and power for the price point. The Ghost is built with power-operated doors, a cabin cloaked in rich materials, hefty space for the driver, passengers, and even for the storage.
Ghost has an A 563-hp 6.7L V-12 that enables it to accelerate from 0-100kph and 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds. Its top speed is an electronically-controlled 155mph (249 kph). It is equipped with a road-scanning camera and an all-driving project that makes driving and sighting of objects much clearer and easier considering the bulk the Ghost has to carry.
11. Ferrari SF90 Stradale: $625,000
Ferrari is known for its super sleek design that speaks volumes about the speed it is capable of exhibiting. Ferrari’s have their characteristic style as well, coupled that with its speed is one reason for such a great admiring audience of the company. The Ferrari SF90 Stradale not only offers speed and style but also comfort.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale not only exhibits the sheer style and power the company stands for but also gives us a glimpse of what the company will be capable of in the future with its brand and cars. Ferrari’s supercars provide a more solid focus and control with their speed and luxury something that is not commonly found in hybrid cars. With a rip-roaring 986 horsepower, the top speed of 340kph (311mph), and 2.5 seconds to 100kph (or 60mph), the Ferrari SF90 Stradale certainly takes the cake for what is possible in the field of hybrid cars.
10. Aston Martin Valhalla: $1,300,000
The second entry for Aston Martin is his $1,300,000 Valhalla, a supercar that is being designed with the collaboration with Red Bull. These cars will be limited edition with only 500 to be made.
The Source of power for the Valhalla would be A turbocharged 3L V-6 engine with definitely a high staked horsepower and torque that has not been mentioned yet. The style and the built of the Valhalla is rumored to be out of exceptional which will provide it a strong sustainable edge. However, it is also rumored that the Valhalla will be less performance-focused than the Valkyrie.
Aston Martin talked about the Valhalla and described its interior to involve space-age elements and innovations to give an incredible vibe. The infotainment screen is in the middle of the steering wheel and the button-dense dashes are replaced with a band that displays audio, ventilation and lighting.
9. Mercedes AMG One: $2,700,000
The 2021 Mercedes AMG One will be a 1000-hp F1-derived plug-in-hybrid drivetrain, with an exceptionally low road noise. The car was designed in an attempt to make Formula-One cars better in road-performance.
Formula One had its first inaugural season in 1950 and ever since then, people have been wondering about ways to bring such sort of tech back to the streets and with the innovation of the Mercedes AMG One, people can enjoy a much more sustainable hybrid model, but the catch is that the drivers who can afford to.
According to the Mercedes website, the claimed acceleration for this car is 0-200kph (or 0-120mph) in 6 seconds. A 1.6-L V6 hybrid petrol and four electric motors allow the AMG One a top speed of more than 350 kilometers per hour (217 miles per hour).
The manufacturing project for this car was delayed for several months but it is now back on go. Engineers are referring to this project as ‘Project One’.
8. Koenigsegg Jesko: $3,000,000
The Jesko is now known as one of the fastest supercars of 2021 It mildly overtakes the price of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale but it is the first car in the list to reach seven figures, however, the exquisite style and performance of the Koenigsegg make it worth it.
The company is something we might all be familiar with now especially with their special appearance in the movie ‘Need for Speed’ but the exceptional performance ability these supercars exhibit are noteworthy on their own.
Swedish auto manufacturer Koenigsegg dreamt up the Jesko as a suitable successor to its already intriguing Agera RS. The manufacturers gave the car’s engine an update with a lighter frame, and a surprising amount of comfortable add-ins which helps a steady and comfortable yet an extremely fast driving experience.
The engine of the Jesko overwhelmingly powerful with 1280-hp V-8; its nine-speed transmission is completely bespoke, built in-house by Koenigsegg to be as the most quick-shifting. The rear-wheel steering of this car helps with managing downforce and drag. This feature helps with the establishment of balance and control for the driver at all times.
The acceleration of the Jesko comes at 330mph (or 531kph), as of now but there is still no word on the acceleration stats on the car.
7. Gordon Murray T.50: $3,080,000
Gordon Murray has been an exceptional automaker for fifty years and this year on the honor of this anniversary, the company, Gordon Murray Automotive has decided to make 50 exclusive road cars and 25 track-only-vehicles.
According to Gordon Murray, ‘Indeed, many auto houses are focusing on electric models, hybrids, and other sustainable initiatives. Murray is acknowledging this by going out for one final hurrah – this vehicle.’ He described the car as “a bookend to the story of ultrafast internal-combustion cars.” Even the people are describing it as ‘the last great analog supercar’.
The Murray T.50 will have a top speed of 220mph (354 kph); official acceleration numbers have not yet been released. The car will also be equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox, a small, powerful, and naturally-aspirated V-12 engine, and (in a further homage to the McLaren F1) a traditional three-seat layout.
6. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+: $5,740,000
Reaching at our top 6, the prices are beyond our imagination and the Buggati Chiron Super Sport 300+ is just the beginning and far from the world’s most expensive car. The price of the vehicle is almost double of the Jesko and the Murray. It is built with the company’s signature exceptional style craftsmanship along with intense power and top speed. Bugatti’s go for millions and are a signature for celebrities to own as a display of their wealth.
The built of the car is extremely futuristic with its sleek cuts and design. These also give the car an edge during driving to make crazy turns and cuts with better control. It has an out of this world 1,577 horsepower from a quad-turbocharged 8L W-16 motor. The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ accelerates from 0-100kph (0-60mph) in 2.4 seconds. It reaches a top speed of just over 300mph, or 483kph; and additional to this, it also have a basic infotainment system that syncs with both Apple and Android products. However, only 30 have been sold so far.
The Buggati Chiron Super Sport 300+ broke barrier’s with its top speed of 300mph years ago and since the company wants to make it to the top, there is never going to be depreciation or devalue of the cars or the company. This is something we can clearly see in their cars.
5. Bugatti Divo: $6,000,000
We did mention that Buggati wants to be on the top of their game and hence this is the second entry in a row of the company in the top 6. Bugatti Divo values at a staggering $6,000,000 but all is worth it. The Chiron was such a success that the company built its successor as well, the Divo, built with similar features. The car is more luxurious and futuristic. Its style its incomprehensible and so is its performance.
The Divos are made so exclusively that only a total of 40 will be manufactured and they have already been reserved. The high-end features of the car include a better suspension, a much lighter frame for increased speed, and a new dorsal fin. It is also equipped with an 8.0L W-16 engine with four turbochargers. Because of this, the Divo has 1500 horsepower, an acceleration of just over 0-100kph (0-62mph) in 2.4 seconds. The top speed of the vehicle is a staggering 380km/h (or 236mph).
The information of the interior built of the car is that to save as much weight as possible, Bugatti kept the inside comfort materials and infotainment to a minimum. The steering wheel, however, is featured with a soft faux suede,
4. Bugatti Centodieci: $9,000,000
For the third consecutive Bugatti on the list we have the Centodieci, with a price jump of $3,000,000 from the last and values at $9,000,000. These cars are much more exclusive that the Divos since only 10 overall are going to manufactured.
Since these cars are made so exclusive, not only do they have the signature Bugatti luxurious look and comfort, it is also made hyper fancy and high-end for its 10 valuable buyers, making is one of the most expensive cars to exist. Since the price is already through the roof, of course would worth for every dollar. The Centodieci will have a 1577-hp quad-turbo W-16, making it the quickest-accelerating if not the fastest Bugatti currently on the road. Bugatti pays homage to the EB110 (or the ‘centodieci’), a supercar produced early in the ‘90s however, that car didn’t make quite the reputation due to its ailment in the timing to perform.
The company has claimed 0-62mph (or just over 0-100kph) acceleration of 2.4 seconds for the Bugatti Centodieci. The supercar will have a top speed of 236 mph, or 379 kph which is considerably less than the Chiron but it makes up for that in its futuristic and luxurious outlook.
3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta: $17,600,000
The first car Pagani introduced was the Zonda, and ideally the manufacturing should have been stopped and cars such as Huayra should have been favored. However, the company decided to keep it rolling with the Zonda, introducing many different versions of the vehicle.
To Horatio Pagani, the Zonda Barchetta seemed to him in Italian ’a little boat’ hence the name Barchetta. Its frame is made entirely from carbon fibre for an ultralight body and zippy, speedy feel; it’s blue-tinted, it has a minimized windshield, and it stands only some 21 inches tall (0.5 metres) at its tallest. Its acceleration is 0-60mph or 0-100kph in 3.4 seconds. The Zonda HP Barchetta can reach a top speed of 355kph or 220 mph.
To further add to its exclusivity, only three of the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta were ever really made. When the last one was being sold, it happily priced at $17,600,000. Hence making it another reason why you cannot buy the luxurious fantasy.
2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire: $18,700,000
The fourth entry for the Bugatti at number 2 on the list is the La Voiture Noire. The luxurious supercar is priced at $18,700,000. The car was introduced in 2019 and it was the best decision Bugatti made, as it stands next in line to the most expensive car in the the world. Instead of making it flashy to be luxurious and eye-catching, the French manufacturer opted for a restrained, minimalistic, and instantly iconic title: La Voiture Noire. It is a matte black vehicle with its name geared to the grill.
For the features of this extremely high-end car, It’s got a carbon-fiber shell that’s sculpted by hand, a quad-turbo W16 8.10L engine that produces 1500 horsepower, and an acceleration of 0-100kph (0-60mph) in 2.4 seconds. The top speed for the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is claimed at 420 kph (260 mph), and its overall performance is precision-engineered by an auto house famous for producing the most powerful cars in the world for several decades.
This car was introduced in 2019, and no company has yet manufactured a car more expensive and luxurious than the La Voiture Noire. Even after nearly two years, no car has taken away the position from this beautiful car from being the most expensive car ever to be manufactured.
1. 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO: $70,000,000
For introducing the most expensive car on this list, we have to dive a little bit into history and opt-out the Ferrari 250 GTO that was manufactured in 1963.
Ferrari 250 GTO won the Tour de France Automobile in 1964 which was the 9th year in the row that the company had won the title. Only 36 of these cars were made between 1962 and 1963; the specific Ferrari that’s the most expensive in the world, at an unbelievable $70,000,000 price point. The Ferrari 250 GTO not only won several Tour de France Automobile but it was also paced in the Le Mans hence the extremely high price points.
The top speed of the Ferrari has claimed 174 miles per hour and an acceleration of 0-100kph (0-60mph) in 6.1 seconds which is not particularly exhilarating for car enthusiasts of our time but considering the fact that the car was manufactured back in the 1960s, it is definitely a dream. The multiple tournaments it has to its name for sure say it all. It did manage to stay the most expensive car even decades later.
Enthusiasts claim the Ferrari to be the Picasso of the Motoring World; others, the Holy Grail of Ferraris The current owners of the most expensive car of all time include American fashion designer Ralph Lauren, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, and Jon A. Shirley, the former President and COO of Microsoft.
And there you have it, the most expensive car in the world; The Ferrari 250 GTO which is probably going to claim the title for much longer. The reason for that being? Not only does the car have the looks and the speed (speaking in terms of a 1960s model) it also tells thrilling stories something none of the future cars might be able to do.
