What are the World’s 10 Most Expensive Cars?
The super-rich always want super-cars. Here we have a look at the World’s 10 most expensive cars money can buy new – of course the Quentin Willsons among us will know that auctioned classic cars fetch much higher price tags, with a classic race-driven Ferrari setting you back around £50 million, but that’s a very volatile market and prices, as they say, may go up or down.
For new cars, Bugattis feature high in the list, so that’s the brand to look for if you want to make a splash – most of us may only be able to dream, but if you’re going to dream, dream big…So what are the World’s 10 Most Expensive Cars?
10. Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Vivere – £2.7m
Mansory, a luxury car modification firm based in Germany, managed to make the already-expensive Bugatti Veyron (once the fastest road car ever made) a little bit more expensive. They took the Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster and among lots of other things, fitted an accumulation spoiler package, new LED lights and an upgraded cabin. They take the number ten slot on our World’s most expensive cars list.

9. Lamborghini Veneno – £3.5m
Based on the Aventador, the Veneno was built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini. It features the Aventador’s 6.5-litre V12, producing 740 hp and is simply a road-legal version of Lambo’s racing prototype. It can get from 0 to 60mph in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 221 mph. The name “Veneno” comes from a famous fighting bull; most Lamborghinis are named after deceased bovine warriors, and all of them, including Veneno, have sent a matador to the grave.
