Many people dream about owning their perfect car. Whether you’re a fully-fledged “petrol head” and a true car connoisseur, or someone who simply loves one special model, there are very few of us who can afford to splash out on the car of our dreams.
Royals, billionaire business people, Hollywood stars, mega-music artists, Premier League footballers and lottery jackpot winners might be able to afford one of the most expensive cars in the world!
Valued at more than $1 million, the McLaren Senna is McLaren’s latest supercar. Named in tribute to the late, great Formula One driver, Ayrton Senna, the sports car looks and handles like a racing track car – but it’s also completely street legal!
Lightweight, its design includes carbon fibre. Outrageously styled, it resembles an F1 car. It was one of the featured supercars in the motor racing video game, Forza Horizon 4.
Arash AF10 Hybrid
Valued at $1.2 million, the Arash AF10 Hybrid resembles the Batmobile. The hybrid-powered supercar is manufactured in small numbers in England. It is said to have “spaceship technology”, including a 550-horsepower, 6.2-litre, V8 petrol engine combined with four electric motors.
They are joined together in what is described as a “Warp Drive” configuration that propels the car from 0 to 60 mph in an incredible 2.8 seconds. Wow!
Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta
Some incredible cars are valued at more than $2 million, such as the LaFerrari Aperta, which costs a staggering $2.2 million – more than most people will earn in a lifetime.
The open-top, hybrid-powered Ferrari is made even more exclusive by the fact only 200 are being manufactured. The mighty V12 engine has 800 horsepower and is Ferrari’s most powerful non-turbocharged or supercharged engine in history. Further boosted by a 120-kw electric motor, it produces a combined total of 950 horsepower.
Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
The second most expensive car in the world today comes in at a mind-boggling $4.5 million, according to Forbes. An open-top hypercar, the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is a street legal racing car.
The car’s aerodynamic, angular shell makes it a stunning spectacle as it purrs down the highway, accompanied by the deep roar of the 6.5-litre V12 engine. It generates an amazing 740 horsepower. The car is so exclusive that only nine have been built in the whole world.
Currently, three people are said to own one of the rare supercars. They are Antoine Dominic, the owner of Lamborghini Long Island, the Florida-based managing director of Tequesta Ivestments Kris Singh, and a third buyer who remains anonymous.
Bugatti La Voiture Noire
The world’s most expensive car to date is the one-off $18 million Bugatti La Voiture Noire, unveiled in May at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Bugatti built La Voiture Noire (French for “The Black Car”) to celebrate the company’s 110th birthday. According to Spanish media outlets, the stunning supercar was put on the market after the motorshow and was reportedly snapped up by Portuguese footballing legend Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, the long-time Bugatti fan hasn’t confirmed the rumours, although he is known to have bought the brand’s earlier model, the $3 million Chiron.
Thanks to his massive earnings and accumulated wealth, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid icon, who now plays for Juventus, would have spent just 14.5% of his estimated annual salary on La Voiture Noire. However, Bugatti spokesman Tim Bravo refused to reveal the identity of the mystery buyer, according to Fox News.
Most expensive car showrooms
Hand-in-hand with the world’s top supercars are the top car showrooms on the planet. If you’re one of those lucky people whose income affords you a car valued at more than $1 million, you might wish to take a trip to Dubai. The billionaires and millionaires of Dubai are flocking to a showroom of cars valued in total at a staggering $45 million!
Owner Mohamed Redha Abdullah opened Deals on Wheels in 2007 as a result of his own passion for luxury and sports cars. While the showroom’s name conjures up strange visions of Only Fools and Horses’ Del Boy Trotter, the cars on display certainly don’t!
Think luxurious models including Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and Rolls-Royce, to name but a few. Abdullah has realised his dream of making his showroom the most luxurious in the world. He’s never short of customers, thanks to Dubai’s culture of rich and wealthy residents. Luxury cars are extremely popular there.
The most expensive car he has sold is the Ferrari LaFerrari. He attributes his success to his fair prices and having “an eye for the ultimate sports car”.
Meanwhile, Amsterdam-based James Edition has 2,000 luxury cars on its books, selling worldwide through its website for private sellers. Among its current offerings is the McLaren P1 GTR road-legal racing car in yellow and black, with a price tag of $3.3 million. If this is a little out of your league, you can pick up a Ford GT 67 Heritage Edition sports car for just $1.3 million!
