The 5 most expensive cars in the  world

Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita — $4.8M

When it comes to ultra-rare vehicles, the  Koenigsegg  CCXR Trevita stands above the rest. The Swedish boutique manufacturer only built two of these things, and one of them happens to be owned by boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather, who made headlines in August 2015 by announcing he paid $4.8M for the privilege. The company describes the hypercar as a “diamond on wheels.” It‘s not just hyperbole, either; the CCXR  Trevita‘s specially designed and coated carbon fibre body actually sparkles a silvery white under sunlight. The company originally planned to produce three copies of this car, but the process for  manufacturing the white carbon fibre proved to be so difficult that the decision was made to limit production to just two.

The Trevita, which is a Swedish abbreviation meaning “three whites,” features a  double carbon rear wing and a 4.8-litre V8 under the hood, pumping out 1,018 horsepower and 796 lb.-ft. of torque. It can hit 100 km/h from a standstill in a scant 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of over 410 km/h.  Impressive, indeed.


 

Lykan HyperSport — $3.4M

The brainchild of Dubai-based W Motors, the Lykan is the first supercar made by a company located in the Middle East. It was featured in the film  Furious 7  and has already built up its supercar cachet as one  of the most expensive and limited production cars ever — W Motors plan to produce only seven units of the car. So, what makes the Lykan so special? Well, in addition to being powered by a 3.7-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six engine that produces 780  horsepower  and 708 lb.-ft. of torque, the two-door, rear-wheel-drive supercar can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, and it‘s  the first car to feature  headlights with embedded jewels (buyers have a choice of diamonds, rubies or sapphires). Talk about extravagant.


Lamborghini  Veneno  Roadster — $4.5M

The  convertible version of Lamborghini‘s fierce-looking supercar is the  most expensive — and exclusive — vehicle in Lambo‘s arsenal. Only nine Veneno Roadsters were produced, beginning in 2014. Those lucky to get their hands on one of these exclusive cars surely forgot about  the hefty price tag as soon as  the 740-horsepower V12 engine hit its top speed of 355 km/h.


Bugatti Veyron  Grand Sport Vitesse — $2.6M

The Grand Sport Vitesse convertible is loaded with a  neck-breaking 1,200 horsepower  and 1,106 lb.-ft. of torque. Compare that with the standard Bugatti Veyron‘s 987 horses  and 922 lb.-ft. of torque, and the difference becomes pretty evident.


Koenigsegg One:1 — $2.85M

The  One:1  is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.0-litre V8, producing a seriously absurd 1,340 horsepower and 740 lb.-ft. of torque. And how to explain the odd name? The One:1‘s extensive use of carbon fibre lends a  curb weight of just 1,340 kilograms, which matches the horsepower output. All of this translates to blistering performance on the track. The supercar can reach 300 km/h from a standstill in just 11.922 seconds.
