What are the most expensive cars in the world? If the past will be included, that will be the 1931 Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe sold for $8,700,000 in 1987. However, that car is definitely not in this list because it is not available in the market today. Boys who had the money and opportunity would probably spend a small fraction of it on a collection of the rarest and most expensive cars for their private garage, for their personal use.
Here are the 3 most expensive street legal production cars on the market as of 2012:
#1 Bugatti Veyron Super Sports $2,400,000.
Reason why this is the most expensive car? Well not because of its limited units but because of what Bugatti Veyron has. This is by far the top of the list on most expensive cars and the most fastest street legal production car available on the market today when tested again on July 10, 2010 with the 2010 Super Sport Version reaching a top speed of 267 mph. Veyron is sold only through the Bugatti manufacturer channels and cannot be found at any Volkswagen dealer. It is the fastest accelerating car reaching 0-60 in 2.5 seconds. Thinking of a drag race with Bugatti Veyron? Mate, please think a hundred times then.
#2 Aston Martin One-77 $1,850,000
Wondering why it has named as One-77? Well, this car is a total package of beauty and power in One, and it is the second on the list for the most expensive cars in thw world as it has only 77 units available. One-77 says it all. With 750 hp, it is able to travel from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and reaching a maximum speed of 220 mph. The Aston Martin One-77 has been awarded with several internationally renowned design awards including the Concorso d’Eleganza Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes. Aston Martin claims that One-77 is the most powerful naturally aspirated production engine the world yet to see.
Lamborghini Reventon $1,600,000
The most powerful and the most expensive Lamborghini ever built is unfortunately not the most expensive car in the world, it is only third on the list of the most expensive cars as of 2012. Its top recorded speed was recorded in Dubai, UAE at 356 kilometres per hour or 221.2 mph and it takes 3.3 seconds to reach 60 mp. The 20 limited units and its slick design are the reasons why it is so expensive.
