Any list with this title is going to be necessarily extreme. These five best cars ever made cars are the best ever made, a way to show what is possible when money is no object. They will blow your mind, and they are unobtainable to all but a small fraction of the population.
But maybe that’s part of the fun, right? We know we can’t have them now, so we dream about what might someday be possible, when we hit it big.
This list includes relatively recent vehicles produced to actually be driven on the road – not specialty antique cars that can only be bought at auction.
Without further ado – the five best cars ever made and most expensive cars in the world!
1. Maybach Exelero: $8 million
Maybach does not produce automobiles full-time anymore, but if anyone is eligible to kick back after doing something extraordinary, they are. The Maybach Exelero was created specifically to advertise a new wide tired by Fulda Tires. Built in 2004, it features a 700-hp, twin-turbo V12 engine that can reach a top speed of 218 miles per hour.
Speed is not the only focus, though – the interior is a den of luxury as well. Jay-Z has featured the car in a music video and the rapper Birdman bought it in 2011 for the tidy sum of $8 million, making it the most expensive production car ever built.
2. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita: $4.8 million
The Koenigsegg CCXR is this high on the list for one reason: its finish is made with real, actual diamonds. The company’s “proprietary diamond weave” includes carbon fibers and a resin impregnated with diamond dust. Just don’t scratch the paint, because touching it up will cost a fortune!
Under the hood, a 4.8-liter dual-supercharged V8 will give you about 1,000 hp and get you to a top speed of 254 mph. The three owners of these cars (only three were ever produced) will quite literally be driving around on diamonds.
3. Lamborghini Veneno: $4.5 million
It is international law that any list of most expensive cars must include a Lamborghini. At $4.5 million, the Lamborghini Veneno certainly fits the bill. It includes a supercharged 6.5 liter V12 engine with 740 hp. This gives it a top speed of 350 km/hr, and it can go from 0 to 100 km/hr in 2.9 seconds.
With a design straight out of a science fiction movie, the otherworldly appearance apparently worked – only nine of these cars were made, and all were sold before the car was even officially released.
4. Lykan Hypersport: $3.4 million
With a combination of speed and power, the Lykan Hypersport is the first car to be designed and produced in the United Arab Emirates. Its twin-turbocharged engine gives you 740 hp and it can reach 100 km/hr in just 2.8 seconds. Wanna go fast? It’ll hit 240 miles per hour.
Just seven Hypersports were constructed, with one of them bought by the Abu Dhabi police. (Criminals, do not try to outrun them.) It makes this list because of the jewels used in the car’s making. Titanium LED blades include 420 15 ct diamonds. You can also embed jewels in the headlights, including sapphires, diamonds and rubies.
5. Bugatti Chiron: $2.6 million
Designed to be the fastest, most powerful and one of the most expensive cars in the world, the Bugatti Chiron fits the bill with ease. Its 1,500 hp engine can send the care from 0 to 62 mph in only 2.5 seconds. It can reach 270 miles her hour, with some projecting it can hit 280 mph and above.
Just 500 of these fabulous cars will be produced, so get in line early!
So, now that you know the five best cars ever made you can delete all other prospects from your list.
