We are unlikely to see these five most expensive cars in the world on ordinary provincial roads, because they are created with an extremely limited edition.
Sometimes they are not even exploited like cars, but kept, like expensive venerable horses, in guarded garages.
These are real superheroes of the automotive universe, flying faster than bullets and having a power greater than that of locomotives.
Prices for the TOP 5 most expensive cars are indicated either on the basis of the manufacturer’s data (and they may vary), or in rounding +/- $ 10,000.
5th place – Koenigsegg Regera
This supercar was created by a small Swedish manufacturer little known in the world and specializing in the production of exclusive sports cars – the company Koenigsegg Automotive AB.
The Swedes endowed their elegant rear-wheel drive “space miracle” created exclusively by hand with 1,590 kilogram weight, a carbon fiber body, a maximum speed of 410 km / h, and acceleration to 100 km / h in 2.7 seconds.
The hybrid power plant is represented by a 5-liter V8 1100-horsepower engine with 1280 Nm of torque at 4100 rpm. And also with three electric motors: one 217-horsepower on the ICE shaft and two more mounted on the rear wheels, each with 245 hp. They are powered by a set of lithium batteries with a capacity of 9.27 kWh, the volume of which is enough for about 50 km away by electric traction.
Initially, it was planned to produce no more than 80 units of Koenigsegg Regera, and all cars were already sold, despite its price of $ 2.2 million.
4th place – Pagani Huayra Roadster
Gorgeous and stunning, brilliant and unparalleled – what epithets this Italian sports car with unbridled disposition and a price tag of $ 2.3 million can endow.
“Packed” in a carbon-titanium monocoque, equipped with a 760-horsepower Mercedes engine connected to a 7-speed gearbox, this hypercar, similar to a deep-sea predatory fish, promises its owner an indescribable feeling during the ride.
What is the maximum speed of 370 km / h, a 3-second sprint up to 100 km / h, and the largest value of lateral acceleration (1.8 g) among cars designed for driving on public roads!
Lightweight, including through the use of modernized suspensions from the new HiForg aluminum alloy, it weighs only 1280 kg. Equipped with Brembo ceramic carbon fiber reinforced brake discs and Pirelli lightweight but tenacious tires specially designed for it.
It is planned to build no more than 100 copies of the Huayra Roadster, and all cars have already been bought by wealthy collectors and fans of the brand.
3rd place – Bugatti Chiron
Mighty as a seasoned single malt whiskey and muscular like a winged centaur, the Bugatti Chiron is a true masterpiece of automotive art with a 1500-strong 8-liter “heart”, a 2.5-second jerk from zero to 100 km / h and the ability to accelerate to 460 km / h
But, for such a combination of power, functionality and sophisticated comfort you have to pay: in the city, the car consumes 35.2 l / 100 km, and only a set of Michelin tires will cost $ 42,000.
It was first introduced to the public in 2016. In 2017, TopGear magazine called the new product “Hypercar of the Year”, and in 2018 they plan to set a world speed record on it.
According to the manufacturer, since the beginning of the creation of the car, it has sold around the world with a “circulation” of 300 pieces, and it is planned to bring the number of Chironas to 500 cars. Each of these masterpieces costs from $ 2.7 million to $ 3.5 million.
2nd place – Aston Martin Valkyrie
This special car, named after the Scandinavian virgin warrior Valkyrie, is said to have the power of the gods. He has an absolutely unique appearance – aggressive, as if the body of a predatory cat, springing up before the jump.
The creators completely saved the car from steel parts by completing the body completely from carbon fiber and making it super lightweight – the car weighs 1030 kg and the power to mass ratio is 1: 1.
The hypercar will be driven by a hybrid propulsion system. It consists of an atmospheric gasoline 6.5-liter V12 and an electric motor from Rimac. The total capacity will be about 1130 horsepower.
Serial production of this car is scheduled for 2018. Its creation is now engaged in a whole team of manufacturers – Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing, Bosch, Rimac Automobili, Michelin, and many others.
So far, it is planned that no more than 25 copies of the racing version of this car will leave the assembly line, and 150 – road ones. The declared price is $ 3.5 million.
1st place – Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Recognized as the king of modern roads, the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is the first racing car to date that has not yet been surpassed by anyone. According to experts, this car is the owner of the best aerodynamics, stability and handling in the world.
With a body made entirely of carbon fiber, without a roof and with seats covered with a special material called Carbon. Skin, he is handsome as a thoroughbred mustang and dynamic like a rocket.
