Going Down The List
Before we reveal which car was announced as the world’s most expensive and how much its worth… Let’s go through some of the others on the list. Even though they are less expensive – it doesn’t mean they’re less impressive!
The second most expensive car in the world is currently the Rolls Royce Sweptail. The brand Rolls Royce has become synonymous with custom made cars to the high-end needs of the clients.

Shine Bright Like A Diamond
Wait for this – the reason this car costs what it does is because it is literally covered in diamonds – and as we all know, diamonds certainly do not come cheap! Why did they do this?
The Swedish manufacturer has created this new exterior finish which is known as the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave.
This sounds super fancy but what does it entail?
Don’t Get This Car Scratched
This exterior finish involves coating the carbon fibers with a diamond dust-impregnated resin. Let’s just say that you really don’t want to get a scratch on this car – can you imagine the cost of a repaint?
There is a lot more to this car than just the incredible exterior. It has a 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 with 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque.
What else is special about it?
This Car Is Very Rare
This car is extremely exclusive – not just because of the price tag that most people could never even dream of owning one. It is because that there were only three of these cars made!
And of course, what would this list be without having an appearance from Lamborghini? It is the Lamborghini Veneno.
This means poison and we love the modified Aventador roadster.
Built To Honor A Special Occasion
The Lamborghini Veneno comes in at $4.5 million – a slightly more affordable price tag than the cars previously mentioned. It was built to honor a very special occasion. What was it?
It was to celebrate the automaker’s 50th birthday.
From appearances, we think that the name is very fitting for this car because it looks deadly and the only way to describe it is undeniably venomous!
Looking Good From All Angles
We have to admit that this car has no bad angles. It looks good from whichever side or angle you look at it. It is also a very fast car and because of the brand, this comes as no surprise.
It boasts at 6.5-liter V12 which can spin all the way up to 8,4000 rpm which gives the driver 740 hp and 507 lb-ft. This allows to car to get up to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
This shows that even with a lower price tag – it is still incredibly impressive!
Lights, Camera, Action!
This next car is Hollywood worthy and even got a starring role in a movie! This movie was of course the Hollywood blockbuster – Furious 7. Do you know which car we are talking about?
If you don’t, it is the W Motors Lykan Hypersport. It crashes through three skyscrapers in Dubai in the movie.
This is a high-end and one-of-a-kind custom creation and we are impressed!
Performance Mixed With Design Is A Winning Combination
Let’s delve into the nitty gritty of this incredible car. The styling of the vehicle is out of this world with jewel-encrusted headlights, its scissor doors and an interior that is just breathtaking.
Its performance is definitely on par with its beautiful design. The Hypersport has a 3.7-liter, twin-turbo flat-six that gives you 770hp and 708 lb-fit.
This car serves a very special purpose in Abu Dhabi…
The Abu Dhabi Police Force Love Supercars
Did you know that the Abu Dhabi police force have decided to use the Hypersport in their patrol duty? It is mostly used for marketing and PR purpose but it also allows the authorities to keep up with the bad guys if they need to!
This car goes from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 and it has a top speed of 240 mph – the bad guys don’t stand a chance in a car chase with this car!
It has a price tag of $3.4 million and it’s worth every penny!
The Speed Comes With The Price Tag
Now of course this list needs the Bugatti Veyron. This is specifically the Mansory Vivere edition. Not only is this majestic car one of the most expensive, but it’s one of the fastest too!
It was augmented by Mansory. It has 1,200-hp and has been given a magnificent carbon-fiber body. It also comes with a new spoiler packaged and they have also upgraded the LED lights.
What else is new?
A True Piece Of Art
It has a revamped cabin and underwent an amazing redesign of the car’s front grille. Now, taking this driving work of art one step further is some incredible laser etching…
The laser etching is on the exterior and interior. What is the laser etching of? Well, it is maps of historic race events including the Targa Florio.
We’ve kept you in anticipation about its speed…
The Incredible Ferrari Pininfarina
It can go up to 254 mph! We’d love to be zooming around the city in this limited edition Bugatti Veyron… But it comes with a hefty but worthwhile price tag of $3.4 million.
Next up, with a very slight price difference is the Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio at $3 million. It might not have the biggest price tag on our list but it is still extremely in demand and
everyone wants one – why is this?
A Very Exclusive Car To Drive
This is because there were only six of these Ferraris made! It was created by the Italian design house Pininfarina which makes it incredible. This is also a remodel of the Ferrari 458 Spider.
It does however have a brand new body and interior. This allows the 4.5-liter V8 to enjoy 562 hp to the real wheels. The Sergio has been made lighter than the 458 Spider
which means it is faster and handles better.
Every Detail Considered To Make It An Amazing Car
It comes with incredible detailing and consideration to enable this car to perform at the best of its ability. It includes aerodynamic headrests which are built directly into the roll cage.
How did the lucky six people get their hands on a Sergio? This purchase process was a little different to what car buyers are used to.
You wouldn’t be able to arrive at the dealership and ask for it.
The Sergio Joins Automotive History
Did you know that for this special model, each new owner of the Sergio was chosen by the automaker? It joined the ranks of one of the few invite-only cars made in history.
The next car is the last on our list before we reveal the most expensive car in the world so you will want to keep reading –
this is not a piece of information you want to ever miss out on!
The Bugatti Chiron
The Bugatti Chiron costs $2.0 million and has an amazing exterior. It is certainly outshining its predecessor! This supercar has amazing specs which are made possible by the reworked quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16.
It produces 1,5000 hp. The speed racer also get to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds. If that wasn’t impress enough, the maximum speed is 261 mph but still isn’t the fastest car in the world –
this title belongs to the Hennessey Venom F5.
The Statement Is In The Appearance
Even though this car is fast, the speed isn’t the true statement of the car – that comes in the appearance and it has definitely made an impressive impact on everyone who has seen it!
Now, the moment you have been waiting for… The most expensive car in the world belongs to an Italian luxury car manufacturer – can you guess which one stole the show at
this year’s Geneva International Motor Show?
Drum Roll Please…
It was the only and only Bugatti La Voiture Noire. It costs a whopping £14m! It has even been given a special and very fitting nickname from the motoring press… What is it?
The Batmobile of course! Bugatti enjoyed teasing it on their social media for weeks before the announcement.
So, what makes this car so special and worthy of the insane cost?
The Features That Make It So Expensive
It has six exhaust pipes, an eight-liter, W16 engine with an incredible top speed of 261 mph. Has anyone decided to take the plunge and purchase the Bugatti La Voiture Noire?
Yes, there has already been one purchase with probably more to follow but the identity of the new owner has not been revealed yet. There are however still some speculations.
Do you have any guesses?
Who Owns The First Bugatti La Voiture Noire?
The rumors going around have said that it could potentially be Ferdinand Piëch. He is the motoring industry tycoon and his family was actually founding shareholders of Volkswagen and Porsche.
He is 81 years old and we hope he wears his seatbelt if he is indeed the new owner of this amazing car. He was also the former chairman of the Volkswagen enterprise.
Did he get a discount?
Perhaps He Got A Discount On The Bugatti
With such a history with the brand and Bugatti being one of the VW luxury brands, he just may have gotten a slight discount on it but with his history and wealth – we doubt he needs it!
The design of the La Voiture Noire takes inspiration from a classic model from Bugatti. This is the Type 57SC Atlantic. There were only four made of the Type 57SC Atlantic,
these were made between 1936 and 1938.
With Six Exhaust Tips – It Is Quite A Sight!
Back to the La Voiture Noire… It probably is the only car from a brand that can still look great with six exhaust tips! It also has full-width LED brake light strips given it a unique look!
It makes the hypercar appear wider than what it is! There is also an illuminated “Bugatti” sign in case anyone is wondering what car it is. The LED headlights extend
across the top of the wheel arches in the front.
What Does The Interior Of The Car Look Like?
Stephan Winkelmann assured everyone saying that the one La Voiture Noire that has been sold is definitely in the home of a “Bugatti enthusiast”. What do we know about the interior?
Not too much actually because strangely, the Bugatti team did not showcase the interior of the vehicle at its premiere in Geneva and
they also didn’t showcase it in the official image gallery.
The Cost Of The Car Will Continue To Rise
So, we are left to make our own assumptions about what is happening in the cabin of the car. We are sure that it has gone through some intense changes compared to the Chiron and Divo.
It must be quite something with the price tag. The price of this car is estimated to go up and up so if you want one, you better get your hands on in ASAP or it might
become even further out of your price range!
Everything From Bugatti To Ferrari
So whether you prefer fast or a great look – there is everything on this list. From Bugatti to Ferrari, these cars are incredible and would be a dream to take for a test drive one day!
Do you wonder what the most expensive car for 2020 will be like? We can’t wait to see new developments in the motor industry and what these designers think of next!
