There are bad cars, there are good cars, and there are even great cars. If we’re lucky, we see a cool Ferrari or Lamborghini down the road and run to grab a picture with it. But how many times have you seen a car that makes you think of the word ‘grand’? Grand, meaning full to the brim with luxurious features and detailing, as well as fast enough to start a fire. Unless you’re a part of a royal family, are a millionaire, or invented Google, you might not be familiar with these types of luxury cars. This list will give you a glimpse of most expensive cars from around the world, and the grandest price tags that come with them.
McLaren Senna- $1 Million
Figuratively speaking, this car is more of a rocket than a car, and was built with one thing in mind: speed. With 658 horsepower, it can go from 0-125 mph in only seven seconds. It’s also equipped with aerodynamic formations in the front and back to keep it grounded during the drive. Otherwise, it would make like a rocket and fly too. At a cost of one million dollars, this car is actually one of the more cost-efficient on this list.
Maybach Landaulet- $1.4 Million
The Maybach Landaulet is the more reserved car of this bunch. It’s doesn’t have the crazy looks of the other cars, and isn’t the best for a speedy getaway. But, it more than makes up for it in luxury interior and design. It’s known for its convertible back roof, leather seats, and very spacious interior. Costing around $1.4 million, this car is more of a business trip or meeting-other-millionaires-at- an-event kind of car. Get yourself a chauffeur, and you’re all set.
Koenigsegg Agera- $2.1 Million
Now it’s time for a little flare. Take a look at the Swedish-made Koenigsegg Agera. This car has both the face and fast speed of a perfect car and is one of the prettiest cars on this list. The body is made of carbon fiber, making it lighter, and as a result, more aerodynamic. With over 900 horsepower, it’s cut to be a lean, mean, turbocharged machine. If you want your car to be a beauty and a beast, the Koenigsegg Agera is for you.
Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio- $2.1 Million
You may recognize the name Ferrari, but you probably won’t recognize this car if you were to see it on the road. Only six units of this car were made by the Italian design house, Pininfarina, in memory of Sergio Pininfarina, the former chairman of the company. This car is designed as an open face car; there’s no roof or side windows, but the aerodynamic exterior enables it to travel lightning fast and accelerate from 0-62 mph in a mere 3.5 seconds.
Pagani Huayra Roadster- $2.4 Million
The renowned automaker Horacio Pagani created this car to combine power with innovation. Pagani replaced the roof of the car with a detachable hood made of glass and carbon. The Huayra’s powered by a turbocharged engine with 764 horsepower, allowing it to rip from 0-60 in under three seconds. Because only 10 were made and all of the units have already been bought, this car is difficult to get your hands on, without even counting the actual price of $2.4 million dollars.
Bugatti Chiron- $2.7 Million
The Bugatti Chiron is for the millionaire speed devils among us. It has an impressive 1,479 bhp, easily making it one of the fastest cars in the whole world. You pay for the speed on this one, $2.7 million dollars to be exact. Another equally impressive feat of the Chiron is that it takes less than 10 seconds to halt to a complete stop from a neck-breaking speed of 250 mph! With the initial production of the Chiron at 200 units, this car is as unlikely to be spotted on the road as Bill Gates.
Aston Martin Valkyrie- $3.2 Million
If you want to own one of these cars, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is your best bet. This car is designed to make a bold statement, and it certainly does with its sleek and muscled structure. Driver and passenger are offered a unique seating arrangement; both sit with their feet up like an actual race car driver. With an estimated amount of 150 cars made, the first of the cars are yet to be delivered, meaning you might actually get this one.
Lykan HyperSport- $3.4 Million
We’ve seen the impeccable speed, we’ve seen the roofless cars, we’ve seen the luxury interiors, but where are the jewels? Turns out they’re all in the Lykan. This super car was built by a team of Lebanese, Italian, and French engineers. It has a total 780 horsepower, and has jewels imbedded in the headlights. Owners can choose the original diamond highlight design, or from rubies and yellow diamonds. All of those gems must increase the bling in the headlights somehow, right?
Lamborghini Veneno Roadster- $4.5 Million
As if this list wasn’t expensive enough, we have the remarkable Lamborghini Veneno Roadster. Although the price point is a hefty $4.5 million dollars, this super car is actually very lightweight due to its carbon fiber body. This quality is important for the aerodynamics and speed of this rocket. It has 740 horsepower, and can quickly go from 0-60 mph in a short 2.9 seconds. This car definitely belongs in The Fast and the Furious series, but even their budget might not cover it.
Sweptail by Rolls Royce- $13 Million
If the other cars haven’t blown you away, this one will for sure. The Sweptail was made for only one lucky buyer by Rolls Royce, and is the epitome of luxury. It has a panoramic glass roof, and an interior lined with exquisite materials like Macassar Ebony and open-pore Paldao wood. The center console has a champagne chiller and two glass flutes included. A car like the Sweptail just oozes luxury, and the price point definitely matches at $13 million.
