The Most Expensive Cars Ever Made


The world’s best luxury cars offer the best performance and driving experience, but greatness isn’t cheap. Manufacturers sink millions of dollars into designing these hot rods, which means you’ll pay a hefty sum for the chance to drive one. Most of us will probably just stick to window shopping when it comes to these high-quality vehicles, but there’s no harm in looking. Check out the five most expensive cars in the world.


Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita

Few cars are as unique as the CCXR Trevita when it comes to bodywork. The exterior of this car is coated in a specially designed fiber compound that turns black fibers into a sparkling white pigment. In the sunlight, the car sparkles as if it were coated in diamonds. This fiber technology was innovative enough, but Koenigsegg took the creativity one step further with the performance elements of this car. The CCXR Trevita is equipped with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine that generates an unbelievable 1,018 horsepower. It also has a ton of great features, including a carbon-fiber rear wing, ceramic brakes with ABS, Inconel exhaust pipes, paddle shifters, a hydraulic lift system, and a Chrono instrument cluster. Since only two of these cars were produced, they are incredibly rare and valued at $4.8 million.

Pagani Huayra Imola

The Imola is a limited edition of the Pagani Huayra. It has a twin-turbo V12 engine that gives it 827 horsepower and better fuel economy than most other supercars. To improve performance, Pagani made the Imola more aerodynamic than the base Huayra model. The Imola features several electronically adjustable components, including its suspension, differential, and winglets. It also has Brembo and Pirelli parts that make for better traction and braking power. Pagani made only five Imolas, each with $5.4 million price tag.

Rolls-Royce Sweptail

With an exterior that was inspired by luxury yachts and an interior that offers maximum personalization, the Sweptail was once the most expensive new car ever sold. It lost that title to the Bugatti La Voiture Noir but the Sweptail is still one of the most elegant cars in the world. Equipped with a V12 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission, the high performance alone would be worth the price tag. But what you’re really paying for is the ritzy interior. The Sweptail features a middle console that can eject a bottle of your favourite champagne along with two crystal glasses. It also has two secret compartments to keep laptops safely concealed. Only one Sweptail drove off the production line and it cost a cool $12.8 million.

Bugatti La Voiture Noire

Inspired by the legendary Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, the La Voiture Noire is a stunning example of hypercar perfection. Beneath its glossy black hood, this beast is equipped with a quad-turbocharged V16 engine that generates a whopping 1,500 horsepower. The interior features extravagant Havana Brown leather with smooth, aluminum trim. With only one model and an $18.7 million price tag, the La Voiture Noire is the most expensive Bugatti in the world.

Rolls-Royce Boat Tail

Rolls-Royce has always been among the kings of the auto industry but in 2021, they blew everyone out of the water with the release of the Boat Tail. Inspired by the racing yachts of the early 20th century, the Boat Tail features an extendable parasol, adjustable cocktail tables with matching stools, and two champagne fridges. And, equipped with a twin-turbo V12 engine that produces 555 horsepower, this car has lots of speed to match all the luxurious amenities. The only Boat Tail in existence was specially made, and with a $30 million price tag it is indisputably the most expensive car in the world.
