They are the most exclusive of the most avant-garde extract that the industry can generate. They encompass exuberant whims and extremely eccentric resolutions to satisfy a clientele as VIP as it is anonymous. They are the very forefront of technology, the kings of titanium, the advanced ones in carbon fiber, the ones who are most responsible for bringing the race line to the street. The chosen ones of the celebrities who flaunt the most, those who pulverize records and those who lowered the limit of eternity to four seconds. Of course there are several more, but these are the most expensive specimens on the planet. The ranking is dynamic and changing, but they have already scored in history by dint of power and tickets.
10. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio: 2.5 / 3 million euros
It is a conceptual model presented in 2013 and designed to pay tribute to Sergio Pininfarina, president for four decades of the design company that bears his surname. It is a very sporty two-seater built on the basis of the 458 Spider, which seeks to recall the Pininfarina models for the Maranello house of the 60s and 70s.
It offers a top speed of 320 km / h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 3.4 seconds. Six units were manufactured just for special customers. Since it was presented as a prototype at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show until those few units were produced after two years, the price of this tribute supercar has never really been known, but it is estimated between 2.5 and 3 million euros.
9. Pagani Huayra Roadster BC: 3 million euros
It is one of the latest creations by the Argentine designer Horacio Pagani. Its name comes from the Quechua term “huayra”, which means wind, and the initials BC of this special edition correspond to Benny Caiola, car collector and first owner of a Pagani, to whom the designer wanted to pay tribute with a series of 20 units
It is a two-seater with a central rear twin-turbo V12 engine and roadster bodywork that accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and can reach a speed of 386 km / h. With respect to the coupe, the power was increased by 60 horses (exceeds 750 hp) and its weight was reduced by 132 kilos: it has 9 kilos lighter wheels, a titanium exhaust, suspensions made of aluminum alloy that save 25 percent compared to the Huayra and new carbon fiber with 50 percent less weight than the conventional one. At 1,218 kilos it is one of the lightest hypercars in the world.
8. Lamborghini Sian: 3.3 million euros
The Sian, inspired by the Terzo Milenio concept, is the most powerful and fastest Lamborghini in history, but also the brand’s first hybrid model. In addition to its traditional 785 horsepower V12, it adds a second electric motor with another 34 and reaches 819 horsepower. Hence the choice of its name, which means “lightning” in a Piedmontese dialect, the region of Italy where Bologna is located.
Only 63 units of the Sián will be manufactured, and they are all already sold. Of course, all units will be different and personalized because they will have interior designs with details at the request of each user. The limit of 63 models is not whimsical, but refers to 1963, the year of founding of the Italian firm. With an acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometres in 2.8 seconds, the Bolognese house indicates that with this model they enter the era of electrification.
7. Aston Martin Valkyrie: 3.4 million euros
It is the result of the collaboration between the British manufacturer and the Red Bull team, to the point that it is conceived by the talent of the F1 team’s technical director, Adrian Newey. It is built with a lightweight carbon fiber skeleton on which they placed a body with unusual down-force for a road car.
Its engine is a naturally aspirated V12 developed to be mounted in a central position, which credits 1,176 horsepower. Its production is limited to 150 units , all of them sold before being even produced.
6. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+: 3.5 million euros
It is the most extreme variant of the Bugatti Chiron , which was made to break the manufacturing car speed record. And the feat was achieved in early August when it reached 490.484 km / h.
The Super Sport 300+ version, then, immortalizes the fastest model on the planet. Also conceived in carbon fiber, this Bugatti differs from the series model because it managed to increase the power of the 8.0-liter W16 that equips the French hypercar. The Chiron Super Sport 300+ produces 1,600 horsepower, 100 more than the conventional model.
5. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita: 4.5 million euros
It was originally conceived by the Swedish brand to be a limited edition of three units. However, the white carbon fiber used to make it (which has a diamond finish layer) made it extremely difficult to manufacture. The decision was then to manufacture only two units and to transform it into an object of desire.
This immediately attracted Floyd Mayweather , always on the lookout for one-of-a-kind jewelry, who took one of the models in the summer of 2015 for 4.8 million euros. Two years later it was auctioned.
This part from the Swedish hypercar manufacturer is equipped with an aluminum biturbo V8 engine that allows it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. It features a unique dual carbon rear spoiler, carbon ceramic brakes with ABS, tire monitoring and hydraulic lift systems.
4. Bugatti Divo 5: million euros
The Bugatti Divo is designed for customers who do not need to exceed 400 km / h, because in that aspect it is less radical than a Chiron. But this also has its price, because the Divo is a limited edition of only 40 units.
The name Divo pays tribute to a French rider who twice won the legendary Targa Fiorio, a competition that until 1977 was an endurance race on open roads in the mountains of Sicily. Albert Divo was born in Paris in 1895, and after serving as a fighter pilot in World War I, he practiced as a mechanic and later as a professional pilot.
Equipped with the same 1,500 PS W16 engine, the Divo is 35 kg lighter than the Chiron, while its top speed is limited to 380 km / h.
3. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster: 7.6 million euros
With the Lamborghini Veneno the Sant’Agata Bolognese firm celebrated its 50th anniversary, but it was not enough and then it launched an even more exclusive convertible version: the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster.
From the aspect this Lamborghini is already fearsome: it is worked to the maximum in aerodynamic efficiency to bring the performance of a racing prototype to conventional use. It hides the 750 hp V12 cylinder engine recognized for its unbeatable sound and performance that bristles the skin: 355 km / h maximum and 2.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h.
2. Rolls Royce Sweptail: 13 million euros
This Rolls Royce starts from a whim: it was specially commissioned by a VIP client of the brand, a collector of planes and super yachts, who wanted to be able to drive the equivalent of those two collectibles on the road.
That is why its design encompasses lines that also copy those of an airplane and a yacht. In fact, the greatest rarity lies in its interior: despite its enormous dimensions it does not have rear seats. From the roof drop, this huge two-seater based on the Phantom model and equipped with a 6.7-liter V12 engine, looks from behind like a sports yacht.
1. Bugatti La Voiture Noire: 16.7 million euros
It was presented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show as a tribute to the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, designed by Jean Bugatti, the first-born of the brand’s founder, Ettore Bugatti. Four units of this model were built between 1936 and 1938, each personalized by its owner.
This supercar has the mechanics of the Chiron, a 1,500-horsepower W16 engine with which it reaches 400 kilometers per hour. With this model, the Italian house celebrated its 110 years and at the same time positioned it as the most expensive car in history.
Although it was hardly presented, it was speculated that it was going to be around 11 million euros, this jewel found a buyer who paid no less than 16.7 million euros. The crack Cristiano Ronaldo was one of those who was forced to deny that he had bought this Bugatti.
Another name that was linked to the Voiture Noir was that of the eccentric boxer Floyd Mayweather, who owns a huge fleet of luxury vehicles, including several Bugatti. But this was never confirmed. Ferdinand Piech, the former president of the Volkswagen Group, was another candidate that European media pointed to as a possible owner of the most expensive car in the world.
