For someone, a car for two million rubles seemsthe ultimate dream, and for someone, a sports car for two million dollars seems something frivolous and he wants something more. With the first, everything is clear. This is a large part of the world's population and a huge number of cars are offered for them, but the rich also need to be surprised with something. That is why companies every year produce a limited series of already exclusive and very expensive cars. They cost more, drive faster, have a more luxurious interior and more technologically advanced case materials. That's just they are many times more expensive. What kind of cars are these?
When we say that an exclusive car is expensive, then it's no longer Tesla for $ 100,000. The cost of truly the most expensive cars is measured in millions of dollars.

The most expensive car
The most expensive, of course, is not seriala car, but a rarity at auction, which remained almost in a single copy and has a rich history. He could belong to someone or participate in races, but he definitely noted something.
So, the most expensive lot at auctions lastof the time became the legendary 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO from the Maranello Rosso collection. At the Bonhams auction, it was sold for $ 38.1 million. In the entire history of the auction house, this is the highest price for a car.
In this case, sometimes you can find information aboutthat some cars served more expensive, but in many cases the information is either false or not official. When a car is sold by one owner to another, such transactions are not taken into account to determine the most expensive car sold.
If you still say about the most expensive deal to sell a car, then she will be selling the same Ferrari 250 GTO of 1963. The car was sold for 52 million dollars. without auction.
The high cost of this machine is due to the fact that only 39 pieces were produced and each sale had to be approved by Enzo Ferrari himself after a personal meeting with the applicant.
If you think buying such an expensive carit is a whim, then you are wrong. On the one hand, if there is money, why not buy such a toy for the collection, and on the other, this car is constantly becoming more expensive. After a few years, it can rise in price by half, especially if they become smaller (while all released copies have been preserved). As a result, this can be a very good investment, but for now let it stand and decorate the living room. Although, it’s a little sad when such a car just stands, instead of hovering over the road, for which it was created.
The most expensive production cars
If we are not talking about historical cars, but aboutserial, then here the representatives will be slightly different, but the prices are much more modest. However, they do not cease to be serial from this. A small series is also a series. Means even if only 10-20 cars are produced, they can still be considered serial in some way.
That is why I did not include Bugatti La Voiture Noire on the company's 110th anniversary. It was released in just one single copy and sold for 11 million euros.
I wonder how much you need to sign up for a service with Bugatti La Voiture Noire? Apparently spare parts are not available for her.
I note that the prices for these machines are shownapproximately, since at such a level a change in the upholstery or something similar can cost a couple of hundred thousand dollars. So the price of each particular car can change, but the top ten most expensive cars are unlikely to change much.
Let's go from the most “inexpensive” cars to a real topovik.
1. Nio EP9
This car is included in the rating rather inas an exception and as a tribute to fans of electric cars. Due to its relatively low price, it is in last place in the rating. We close our eyes to the fact that more than nine cars are more expensive than it, which we will talk about below.
Nio EP9 is a Chinese supercar for which you will pay 1.5 million dollars (112 million rubles) and you can’t evenput in your garage. He will simply be brought to the track that you choose, they will help you spend your race day, after that they will take you back. A sink is included in the price.
The car itself can hardly be called road. It was created specifically for the track. It is very low, it has two batteries that need to be changed so as not to waste time charging, and it has a capacity of 1341 horsepower. We already wrote about how Richard Hammond almost put on his pants from this car. The material turned out to be large and interesting. Read when you're done with this article (I’ll remind you not to miss)
The Chinese manufacturer Nio even has its own team in Formula E
2. Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta
Is it unusual to see Ferrari, which for many is a symbol of luxury and high cost, on the bottom lines of the rating? And this is the place for her, since it costs "just" 2.1 million dollars (157 million rubles).
The first Ferrari LaFerrari Coupe version wasshown to the public at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2013. Veria Aperta came out much later. All cars were sold out long before the presentation, and therefore it is difficult to determine the exact price of a car, but most often this price is found in the automotive press. You understand, the “secondary” is unpredictable.
Car power is 953 horsepowerforces, and the torque exceeds 900 Nm. A bit unusual characteristics for Ferrari, which usually does not pursue power for the sake of power. Often cars of this brand are in the range of 500-700 horsepower. Their owners have nothing to prove to anyone - comfort is more important for them.
3. Pagani Huayra BC
The cost of this car with a not very harmonious name is 2.3 million dollars (172 million rubles). For this money you get an engine with a capacity of 750 horsepower and a torque of 1,000 Nm. The weight of the machine is only 1218 kg. This is very small, but achieved this indicator primarily due to the use of composite materials. This is a company feature.
It was founded by Horatio Pagani, who beforehe worked in the composite materials department of Lamborghini, and in 1988 founded his own company. Collaboration with Lamborghini continued, in particular on the legendary Lamborghini Countach model.
Later, with the support of Mercedes Benz and its engines, Gorrazio began producing his own cars, the first of which was Pagani Zonda.
4. Icona Vulcano Titanium
While we are going to increase prices, but to decreaseengine power. For Icona Vulcano Titanium, this figure is 680 horsepower and a torque of 820 Nm. However, the manufacturer says that the aggregate's safety margin is large and the derated engine can be “inflated” to 1,000 horsepower.
The main, so to speak, killer feature of the machine is not even $ 2.8 million price (209 million rubles), but the fact that her body is madefrom titanium. The use of such material in creating an entire car is a little dubious and, apparently, this is pure marketing. But, you see, it sounds like that.
The car accelerates to hundreds in 2.8 seconds, and is assembled manually within 10,000 hours. Of course, this is the total value, it is rather a man-hours.
5. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio
And again Ferrari, but this time for 3 million dollars (225 million rubles). This futuristic car has modest characteristics among sports cars (562 horsepower with an engine displacement of 4.5 liters), but it is he who will make you turn around if you pass by.
He is the most unusual and very strongeye-catching. All due to the fact that the car was created as a tribute to the famous designer Paolo Pininfarin, who for more than half a century collaborated with the company and drew her cars. Now his name is immortalized in this extravagant body.
And let's talk about politeness on the road. What car owners are less likely to let pedestrians cross the road?
6. Bugatti Chiron
From beauty we go back to power. The maximum power of the Bugatti Chiron is fantastic 1,500 horsepower and a torque of 1,600 Nm. Ask for such a pleasure 3 million dollars (224 million rubles).
Chiron became the successor to the sensational Veyron, who was the first of the serial cars to cross the psychological line of 1,000 horsepower.
Bugatti Chiron is recognized by many as the fastest andthe most luxurious production car in the world, but for the price it is not the most expensive. But he has a very complex W-shaped engine with a capacity of 8 liters, which provides the car with one and a half thousand “horses”.
7. Aston Martin Valkyrie
The price of the Valkyrie has long been unknown. It leaked to the press (of course, not by accident) from the side of the Red Bull Racing racing team. So, car worth 3.2 million dollars (239 million rubles).
The original plans of the company were production150 cars, which makes it quite massive. True, it is also planned to release limited editions for racing tracks, but the price for them can be much higher.
Of the characteristics, the most interesting are 1000 horsepower and the fact that Adrian Newey, who created champion cars for different Formula 1 teams, was one of the best designers in the history of this sport.
8. Lykan Hypersport
This car is well known to you if you watched the movie "Fast and the Furious 7". It was in it that the heroes flew between the buildings. In the end, he was defeated, but in life hardly anyone wants to do this, because this car costs 3.4 million dollars (254 million rubles).
Lykan Hypersport manufactured by W Motorsfrom the UAE. It is equipped with a 3.7 liter twin-turbo engine producing 750 hp. and a torque of 960 Nm. It is difficult to say how many such cars are produced in the world, but the fact that there is not one is evidenced by the fact that such a car is in the garage of the Dubai police. This instance is unlikely to be the last.
9. McLaren P1 LM
This $ 3.6 million car (269 million rubles) was created by a division of the British company McLaren and brought to mind by Lanzante.
Bringing to mind comes to the fact that the base version of the McLaren P1 "lost" 60 kilograms, and engine power increased to 968 horsepower.
All of these cars are good, but when the end of the world comes, Tesla will come in handy.
He has no rich history besides the one that has its roots.companies lead to the famous racer Bruce Maclaren, who founded the team of the same name in Formula 1. Otherwise, this is a regular supercar. Just very rare and therefore expensive.
10. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
So we got to the top of our rating. The most expensive production car in the world can be considered the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, worth $ 4.5 million (336 million rubles)
This is not to say that this supercar takes its tollhuge engine power. It is rather just a beautiful and luxurious car, which at the same time has become fast. Its engine power is “only” 750 horsepower with a torque of 730 Nm.
Interestingly, due to the very limited series of these cars (only 9 pieces), they are already asking for more than $ 10 million on the secondary market. Although, of course, this information cannot be considered official.
Why do people buy expensive cars?
Counterquestion: why not buy if you have money? Such cars are really worth the money. They are not only a way to have fun, but also a luxury item. In addition, over time, it will only cost more, and this also makes sense if you do not break it before.
All these cars need gas. Make it out of oil. But here's how oil is produced and why not just stop doing it?
It’s also worth noting that the prices indicated in the articleand their equivalent in rubles is given for buying a car where it was produced. If you want to bring such a car to Russia, the price will immediately increase one and a half times due to customs duties and fees.
As promised, in the end I remind you of the Chinese Nio EP9. You can read about him at this link, and discuss in our Telegram chat. There are many people who are not indifferent to cars, especially electric ones.
