THE 10 MOST EXPENSIVE CARS 2017
The 10 Most Expensive Cars 2017 – Talking about vehicles that are about so much more than transportation is exciting and impressing since what we are talking about deals with the most expensive cars in the world. It’s something that is rolling art pieces, flamboyance and swagger which takes precedence over practicality and efficiency.
Vehicles which is born only for the sake of clarity, and forgetting classic cars sold at auction are proudly presented here. So, don’t miss it!
- Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ($4.8 million)
Koenigsegg, coming with the CCXR Trevita, is the most expensive street-legal production car in the world. Costing $4.8 M is no exaggeration to say since this car is fully coated in diamonds.
This Swedish manufacturer developed a new exterior finish for the Trevita, called the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave involving coating carbon fibers with a diamond dust-impregnated resin which is difficult to fathom how much the touch-up paint costs.
A 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 with a total output of 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque are lied underneath the lustrous finish, meaning that it should have little to no trouble overtaking semis on the freeway. The car’s specifications in both performance and price are nearly comical at this point, and only three were ever built.
- Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5 million)
Built to tribute the automaker’s 50th anniversary, Lamborghini Poison established the name for the modified Aventador you see above. Of course it is not our field to speak for the company’s motivations, but the name sounds insane as it is fitting for a vehicle that looks so positively deadly and even so undeniably venomous.
The absolutely sexy of this car is noticeable from every angle and therefore, I’m not isn’t an out space alien spacecraft surveying our planet for eventual colonialism. It seems like a daydreaming. But it could be an awareness for us to know that the only thing more remarkable than the look is the price — a whopping $4.5 million.
Its 6.5-liter V12 spins all the way up to 8,400 rpm to deliver 740hp and 507 lb-ft, surging the car to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. The Veneno’s fast should come as no surprise.
- W Motors Lykan Hypersport ($3.4 million)
The Lykan Hypersport’s starring role can be seen in the blockbuster Furious 7. There were not one, not two, but three skyscrapers Lebanese supercar were crashed through in Dubai. In a franchise filled with high-end exotics and one-off custom creations, the fact that the Hypersport got so much focus is a testament to its magnetism.
Start from the styling, which consists of jewel-encrusted headlights, scissor doors, and an interior ripped straight from science fiction. It looks like a blind drunk armored car from the coming future with a fearless performance right on par with its image. A 3.7-liter, twin-turbo flat-six that yields 770hp and 708 lb-ft are boasted to the Hypersport.
It’s not only Dominic Toretto who is lucky from this level of performance, though, as the Hypersport has been drafted into patrol duty by the Abu Dhabi police force. Despite its main use for marketing and public relations purposes, the high-flying stunner guarantees that the authorities can keep up with any baddie who tries to get cute on the freeway. This car accomplishes 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds, and top speed is a downright scary 240 mph.
- Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Vivere ($3.4 million)
Without some version of the mighty Bugatti Veyron, this list wouldn’t be complete. Here, we’re shining our spotlight on the the Mansory Vivere edition, as not only is it one of the fastest cars in the world, but it’s one of the most expensive as well.
As augmented by German witch doctors Mansory, the 1,200hp Veyron starts out as a Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster, only to be adorned with a gorgeous carbon-fiber body, a redesigned front grill, a new spoiler package, upgraded LED lights, and a revamped cabin. Further classifying the Veyron as a work of art, maps of historic race events like the Targa Florio are laser etched into the exterior and interior. And, one more thing! It can hit 254 mph of speed.
- Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio ($3 million)
The Ferrari Sergio isn’t the most expensive car on the list in spite of an asking price of $3 million. With only six were ever made, it is, however, one of the most highly-jealous vehicles in the world.
The Sergio, crafted by legendary Italian design house Pininfarina, is essentially a Ferrari 458 Spider with a completely new body and interior. This means a whopping 562hp to the rear wheels is sent by a 4.5-liter V8, but because the Sergio is lighter than the 458, it’s faster and handles better. Its new body is not just saving the weight — it’s chock-full of interesting details like aerodynamic headrests that are built directly into the roll cage.
The Sergio’s purchase process seems not as simple as strolling up to a Ferrari dealership with so few examples built. Can you believe that it is the automaker itself who chose the owner, making it one of the rare invite-only vehicles in automotive history.
- Pagani Huayra BC ($2.6 million)
The Pagani Huayra, it’s named after the Incan God of Winds, after all, is a beast through and through with an AMG-sourced V12 and the fastest road-legal Top Gear lap ever. But it wasn’t so satisfying enough for Pagani that at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, Pagani unveiled the Huayra BC, a lighter, hotter version that takes no prisoners.
Right off the bat, we can say that the BC is playing a different game from the standard Huayra. It’s powered with an enormous active rear spoiler that creates 1,102 pounds of downforce at 155 mph, as well as a wider rear track, new side skirts, and a bevy of sexy aero goodies. Despite the additions, the BC is a true featherweight, tipping the scales at a paltry 2,654 pounds thanks to the extensive use of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials. A cool $2.6 million is needed to make the whole deal (or it would have, if all 20 units hadn’t sold already), but you clearly get a lot for your money. With 789 turbocharged ponies on tap, the BC may actually live up to its godly name.
- Ferrari F60 America ($2.5 million)
Celebrating Ferrari’s 60-year tenure in North America, 10 examples of this stunning bombshell were built by the Italian brand. According to the F12 Berlinetta, the F60 is absolutely patriotic as it wears a Stars and Stripes color scheme, American flag seat inserts, and classic racing livery all around. Better yet, you can feel the glory with the top down, as the F60, which can be operated at speeds up to 75 mph, features a lightweight fabric top.
The supercar is mechanically similar to the F12, but the Berlinetta isn’t precisely a Fiat Panda to begin with. Its 6.2-liter V12 churns out 740 glorious hp, enough to propel the car to 60 mph in only 3.1 seconds. The ultrarare flag-waver harks back to Ferrari’s bespoke past, as Ferrari built several region-specific sports cars in the 1950s and 1960s.
- Bugatti Chiron ($2.5 million)
The divine Chiron beats its predecessor in every conceivable way with a starting price of $2.5 million and a gorgeous new body. While the Bugatti Veyron redefined what an automobile could do, the Chiron laughs at those who said the Veyron was the last of its kind, pushing the boundaries of performance even further into the stratosphere.
The supercar’s monstrous specs are made likely by its re-upgraded quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16, which now generates 1,500hp and a monstrous 1,180 lb-ft. 60 mph is dealt with in a rather quick 2.5 seconds on the way to the Chiron’s limited to 261 mph top speed. Despite not the fastest car in the world that title belongs the Hennessey Venom GT, but cars like these aren’t just about speed; they’re about making statements. There’s no doubt that this Bugatti makes a very strong statement indeed. Don’t you think so?
- Koenigsegg One:1 ($2 million)
With $2 million amount of money, we can buy many things like a really nice house, about 80 Mazda MX-5’s, or the Swedish “megacar” shown above. A logical thinker could probably think of a better way to spend your life savings, but megacars never give a damn about logic as they’re mega. And it might actually be a steal after reading what the car is capable of, $2 million.
The limited-edition One:1 is based on the Agera R, and it gained its poetic moniker by employing a 1:1 kilogram-to-horsepower ratio. Did you ask about the figure on each side of the colon? Thankfully, this car has 1,340hp, and can theoretically top 273 mph because of it. Simply put, this is one of the fastest automobiles ever made, and it’s one of the most advanced as well with its F1-style honeycomb core, carbon-fiber intake manifold, and ventilated ceramic brakes. There were only six examples of the speedy Swede available, and each one was sold quite rapidly.
- Koenigsegg Regera ($2 million)
When we talking about hybrid hypercars, we usually fantasize about the “holy trinity” — the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and Ferrari LaFerrari. Koenigsegg is always left out and even never comes to our mind, despite the fact that the Swedish automaker makes a vehicle that outshines its electrified competition in many ways.
The $2 million Regera, powered by a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 and a 4.5-kWh battery pack, produces an outstanding 1,500hp in total, a stat made all the more impressive when you consider the car’s low weight of 3,240 lbs. It is impressive to be sure that it can hit 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds, but the Regera’s 0 to 186 mph sprint is even more mind-blowing — the feat is accomplished in only 10.9 seconds. Based on Koenigsegg’s internal estimates, the car will be able to hit its top speed of 248 mph in just 20 seconds or so, which is a triumph over physics as much as it is a bragging right.
So, which one of the above cars meets your budget?
