We’ve compiled a list of the world’s 12 most expensive cars (the new price, not what they sold for at auction or in a private sale). To give you an idea of how incredible this list of most valuable cars is, consider that the least expensive car on this list is worth more than $2 million. If you scroll all the way to the bottom, you’ll find out which car is the most expensive car in History
12. Lamborghini Sian: $3.6 million
The Sian is Lamborghini’s most daring and innovative effort yet, with a hybrid system that takes advantage of lithium-ion supercapacitors, resulting in a hybrid that doesn’t sacrifice weight for immense power. Drivers can expect 819 horsepower, a 2.8-second acceleration time to 60 mph, and a top speed of more than 220 mph. And, with design cues from the Countach, the Sian is unmistakably iconic even at a glance.
11. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ and Chiron Super Sport: $3.9 million
It’s human nature to strive for improvement and to push the boundaries of whatever is in front of you. But, for the past 15 years or so, no one has done it quite like Bugatti. They changed the world when the Veyron was discovered to be capable of 253 mph, and they are changing the world again with the Chiron Super Sport 300+, which is capable of speeds exceeding 300 miles per hour. The price can easily be justified simply for the opportunity to travel at that velocity.
10. Lamborghini Veneno: $4.5 milion
9. Bugatti Bolide: $4.6 milion
The Bugatti Bolide is what happens when one of the world’s most storied automakers goes all-in on performance. Bugatti had intended for this hypercar to be a study project when it was first revealed, but later decided on a production run of 40 Bolide examples. Each of these examples costs a million euros, or approximately $4.6 million USD.
8. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita: $4.8 million
7. Pagani Huayra Imola: $5.4 million
6. Bugatti Divo: $5.9 million
5. Bugatti Centodieci: $9 million
The Bugatti Centodieci is a tribute to the EB110, a modern classic. The 200+ mph icon of the 1990s combined with Bugatti’s current body of work can only result in a truly amazing, one-of-a-kind, and inherently expensive car. There will only be ten of these, which is a shame because the Centodieci isn’t just great for nostalgia. It outperforms the Chiron by losing nearly 45 pounds and adding downforce.
4. Bugatti La Voiture Noire: $12.5 million
This breathtaking one-of-a-kind Bugatti was inspired by Bugatti’s earlier history’s legendary Type 57 Atlantic. Bugatti sought to recreate the sophistication and mystique of the Atlantic, as well as the legend of the perfect car. La Voiture Noire is one-of-a-kind, with features reminiscent of the old Atlantic, such as six tailpipes and a dorsal seam across the middle.
3. Rolls-Royce Sweptail: $13 million
The tapered rear end is the Sweptail’s defining feature and namesake, evoking a yacht and the sense of pure pleasure and luxury that only a Rolls Royce can provide. With a glass roof that extends from front to back and wood and leather on nearly every interior surface, the Sweptail is similar to, if not better than, a yacht, and is therefore priced accordingly.
2. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta: $17.5 million
The Pagani Zonda is a car that we know to be epic and historic in the world of supercars in and of itself. Its distinct appearance, formidable Mercedes-Benz 7.3 liter V-12, and exceptional performance have made it a classic and a legend. That makes a car like the HP Barchetta ideal for doing it justice. As if the Zonda wasn’t already eye-catching, the HP Barchetta has rear wheels partially covered by a carbon fiber panel and a roofless (and almost windshield-less) body design, hence the Barchetta name, making it truly deserving of the title of being one of the most expensive cars in the world of all time.
1. Rolls-Royce Boat Tail: $28 million
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is the most expensive car in the world. It was inspired by everything nautical and was created by Rolls-Royce Coachbuild. It has Caleidolegno veneer on its “Aft Deck,” a wrap-around windscreen, and a plethora of other nautical details. An area in the back opens up to reveal a hosting suite with everything you need for an al fresco dining experience. Two BOVET 1822 reversible timepieces that can be used as dashboard clocks were also included in the Rolls-Royce Coachbuild. Rolls-Royce also debuted the Boat Tail at the Concours d’Eleganza Villa d’Este for the first time.
