Opening the list of the most expensive cars in the world is the Bugatti Veyron. This car was named after the racing driver Pierre Veyron (1903-1970). This luxurious vehicle is considered the most powerful in the world and it is also the fastest. Yet another record is the acceleration speed, as this amazing car reaches 100 km/h in an astonishing 2, 5 seconds. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport can touch as much as 431 km/h, which is truly incredible!  Its consumption is, as expected, matching the performances: when driving in the city, the fortunate owner of the base model of this car must expect to consume 24L/100km.

2. Lamborghini Reventon – $1,600,000

The most amazing Lamborghini ever, Reventon can reach 60 in 3, 3 seconds which is still outrageous. The limited number of available models (only 20 were produced), together with its great aspect and performances were the main reasons for which the price went so high.  Only by seeing this futuristic looking automobile one can understand why all the cars were sold before they were even made.

3. Koeniggseg Agera R -$1,600,000

In the 2011 Geneva Car Show, the Koeniggseg Agera R was revealed. It is a car which really takes driving to the next level. Very strong, though very, very light his is the car which overtook the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, not because of the engine, which is actually less powerful that that of the previously mentioned Bugatti, but because it weight less. We do not have though full data on the subject yet.

4. Mc Laren F1 – $ 970,000

This is another limited series, comprising only 100 impressively powerful cars. It was produced some 15 years ago, between 1994 and 1998, and at that time, the Mc Laren F1 was the most expensive car in the world. Nevertheless, this super car is still in the top 3, which speaks greatly of its performances. Being old did not make it slow: it takes 3, 3 seconds to go from 0 to 100 and it may reach as much as 386 km/h.

5.  Ferrari Enzo -$ 670,000

It’s beautiful, stylish design is one of the reasons why this sports car is so expensive. There were only 400 releases of this model, which also contributed to its price. Moreover, today, the price reaches $ 1,000, 000 and it continues to go up, as this model becomes more treasured every time a Ferrari Enzio is crashed in an accident, and hence the number of existing cars goes down.
