1. Maybach Exelero: $8,000,000.00
In May 2011, American rapper Birdman made headlines. He stated that he had purchased a car for a whopping $8,000,000. Yes, you read that right, a princely $8,000,000 for a car. They are the ultimate engines for the road. Supercars built not only for speed, but as an ultimate symbol of scandalous luxury.
Technology is largely responsible for providing us with luxury and convenience. It is for this reason that people prefer technologically advanced vehicles that can provide them greatest amount of comfort but important thing to note here is that luxury usually has a large monetary cost.
2. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita: $4,800,000.00
Floyd Mayweather is in the headlines these days for his upcoming boxing match with MMA fighter Conor McGregor. However, when he isn’t busy inside the boxing ring, he can likely be found rearranging his collection of high-profile supercars. By rearranging, we mean selling incredibly rare cars to make room for new ones.
Mecum has officially consigned Mayweather’s Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita after months of speculation that the boxer would sell his prized-Swedish supercar. The fact this car is hitting the market is a big deal because only two CCXR Trevitas were built and this one is specced to be street legal in the United States. The “Trevita” name is Swedish for “three whites,” which references the Koenigsegg’s special diamond-weave, carbon-fiber bodywork.
3. Lamborghini Veneno: $4,500,000.00
Are re you tired of having $9.5 million laying around and not knowing what to do with it? The person selling this one-of-three 2013 Lamborghini Veneno Coupe is here to help. We say one-of-three, but Lambo actually built five of these, but only sold three of them. One of the other two was for testing and the other one was a 50th birthday gift to Lamborghini from Lamborghini. A Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was also manufactured and they made a whopping nine units.
This mid-engine, all-wheel-drive supercar is posted for sale on Mobile.de which is like German Craigslist. However, the ad says the car is located in the U.S. It has 112 miles on the clock, all of where were accumulated delivering the car to its current home. The car has not been driven since then.
4. Bugatti Veyron Super Sports: $2,400,000.00
With production of the Bugatti Chiron already in full swing, and the Veyron popping up semi-regularly on the high-end used market, buyers with six-figure budgets should have no hard time getting their hands on one. But at an upcoming Bonhams auction, a Veyron unlike any other will cross the block.
This is the very last Bugatti Veyron Super Sport ever built, and it’s heading to auction in just over a month. Finished in a stunning black-over-black exterior with a red leather cabin, the supercar has driven just 550 miles (885 kilometers) since new, and has had just one owner in its six years on the road. That means it definitely won’t go for cheap; estimates suggest it could fetch anywhere from £1,700,000 to £1,800,000 ($2,300,000 to $2,400,000). For reference, the 100th Chiron cost a whopping $3.4 million.
5. Lykan Hypersport: $3,400,000.00
$3,400,000. Only seven units of the so-called “first Arab supercar” from Dubai’s W Motors are expected to be built, with the first one having already been delivered to the Abu Dhabi police as what could be the speediest cop car on the planet with 780 horsepower under the hood.
Aside from a truly quick and attractive supercar, $3.4 million gets you LED headlamps encrusted with 220 diamonds (or other precious stone of one’s choosing) each, among other over-the-top accoutrements. A less-expensive model (at $1,85 million), the Fenyr Supersport, is also available
6. Ferrari LaFerrari: $1,416,362.00
The Ferrari LaFerrari – or just LaFerrari if you will – is the apogee of Ferrari’s current roadcar programme: a carbon, two-seat hypercar that melds a 6.3-litre Ferrari V12 with a KERS-esque battery pack and electric motor to give 950bhp and 663lb ft of torque. As you might expect, it looks like a spaceship, and drives like the best Ferrari ever made.
7. Porsche 918 Spyder: $845,000.00
This just in: Porsche dealers are now taking orders for the 918 Spyder Hybrid. The plug-in coupe combines a 500 horsepower V8 engine with two electric motors that add the equivalent of 218 horsepower. The engine is based on the based on the Porsche RS Spyder racing engine, with a rear-wheel-drive, seven-speed Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK) double-clutch gearbox.
Porsche says the car will go zero to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, with a top speed of 199 mph. Top speed on electric power alone will be 94 mph–within limited distances, of course. Electric-only range on the car under slower driving conditions will be roughly 16 miles; recharge time on a 110V/10A outlet will take seven hours.
Made of a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic monocoque, the 918 Spyder will include a manual roof system with removable panels that can be stored in the front luggage compartment. Manufacturer suggested retail price: $845,000.
8. Rolls-Royce Phantom: $480,175.00
The 2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe is a 2-door, 4-seat Coupe, available in 1 , the Base. Upon introduction, the $438,325 Base is equipped with a standard 6.8L, 12-cylinder, engine that achieves 11-mpg in the city and 19-mpg on the highway. Mark your own drive with luxury!
9. Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe: $484,875.00
On the morning of 1 September 1937, at the height of the battle between the United States and Great Britain to be the fastest nation on water, British speed record pioneer Sir Malcolm Campbell headed out onto the calm blue waters of Lake Maggiore on the Swiss-Italian frontier. Pointing the nose of his Bluebird K3 hydroplane boat south, powered by Rolls-Royce’s R-engine, he established a new water-speed record of 126.32mph.
The Phantom lineup is made up of two four-door models (including a long wheelbase), a coupe and the convertible. The DHC has a starting price of $484,875, including the $2,600 gas-guzzler tax and the $2,500 freight charge and from Chichester, Great Britain. The tester had about $68,000 in options, which would buy most in the 99 percent income demographic a luxury class sedan.
But for costing half-a-million, the tester did not have a heated steering wheel or ventilated seats. And the three-stick cigar humidor – $4,500 – in the glovebox would pop open and cause the glovebox door to jam until slender fingers could be found to finesse it open.
10. Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe: $438,325.00
Look at it. A stunning piece of automotive engineering and design, the Rolls-Royce Phantom is what the British automaker is all about: elegance, class, sophistication, and an unmatched craftsmanship.
Rolls-Royce Phantom Price and Fuel Economy: Oh, silly pricing. Why on earth would you want to know that when it comes to the Rolls-Royce Phantom? You’ll only make yourself feel sad… but OK here goes:
- 2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom (base) $407,400
- 2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe $438,325
- Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe $479,775
- 2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase $480,175
11. Lamborghini Aventador: $393,695.00
It’s almost six years since Lamborghini introduced the Aventador to replace the Murcielago. Six years and although we’ve had a hot one (the SV) and one with lift out roof panels (the Roadster), the LP700-4 has otherwise soldiered on while around it the supercar market has changed beyond all recognition. The Holy Trinity have been and gone, and in pretty much the same period McLaren has gone from a standing start to having a three model range with LT this, Spider that and GTR gor-blimey.
What’s been occupying Lamborghini? Well, the Huracan obviously, plus SUV dithering and a bunch of diversionary one-offs such as the Egoista and Sesto Elemento. But Lamborghini can get away with this because there’s nothing else quite like the Aventador. It’s supercar 101: looks, noise, power, drama. Don’t overthink it, just do it. Pure pageantry. Alongside Lamborghini everyone else takes themselves too seriously. Among car companies only Lamborghini looks like it’s having fun.
12. Bentley Mulsanne: $335,600.00
The car that is synonymous with celebrities, Beverly Hills and millionaire lifestyle, the Mulsanne is a luxury saloon revered only for the super rich, being priced at $335,600.00.
13. Ferrari F12berlinetta: $319,995.00
The 2015 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta carries on the brand’s tradition of fast, sexy, sleek front-engined cars. It’s proportions remain classical even though all of the details look to be drawn from the future—or the wind tunnel.
Outclassing all of the Ferrari range in terms of power, except for the LaFerrari hybrid supercar, the F12 Berlinetta sports a hefty $330,000 price tag. Buying that ticket entitles the owner to an incredible ride, however, with the sights, sounds, and emotional driving experience all tuned to Ferrari’s maximum.
Under the hood, a 6.3-liter V-12 engine sits, generating 729 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque with its redline at a wailing 8,700 rpm. According to Ferrari, 80 percent of that torque is available from 2,500 rpm, helping to accelerate the rear-drive supercar to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds. The F12 Berlinetta’s top speed is claimed to be greater than 211 mph.
14. Rolls-Royce Ghost: $319,400.00
The last time we saw a Rolls-Royce Series II model was in 2012, when the luxury car builder released the Phantom Series II a full nine years after the Phantom debuted in 2003. With that timeframe as a point of reference, we would not expect to see a Ghost Series II until about 2019 or 2020.
Well, prepare to be surprised, as Rolls-Royce has revealed the Ghost Series II at the Geneva Auto Show . But just like I said earlier, the revisions are pretty minor relative to more mainstream automakers.
Then again, Rolls-Royce is not your “typical” automaker, as it finds a nice place and doesn’t change much until things get completely stale. Actually, the changes that Rolls Royce made are fairly extensive for a Series II model, so we can;t say that we’re upset with the new Ghost.
15. Ferrari FF: $295,000.00
Ferrari announced a panoramic roof option for its all-wheel drive FF at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, promising the new full-length glass panel would offer its well-heeled clientele “a genuine open-air driving feeling, while providing thermal and acoustic insulation.” That statement was intriguing, as my experience with glass roofs usually ends abruptly after I close the opaque shade – as a Southern Californian, I always find tinted glass panels too hot during the day and too cold at night.
While the FF I reviewed in August was fitted with a solid aluminum roof, I was fortunate to catch up with a brand-new silver Ferrari FF (it only had about 160 miles on the odometer) with the optional panoramic roof (a $17,666 upgrade) at the Formula One race at Circuit of the Americas just last month.
It was my lucky day, as I was about to spend about six hours with the four-place Italian, blissfully enjoying it during the warm day until long after the sun had set on the Texas horizon.
