Five Of The Fastest And Most Expensive Cars In The World
“The fact is I don’t drive just to get from A to B. I enjoy feeling the car’s reactions, becoming part of it.”
– Enzo Ferrari
For true car buffs, the car is more than just a vehicle. It is a work of art that demands intricate attention and uttermost care. These cars listed below are the most expensive cars in the world and need double the attention and care.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita (N1, 732,800,000)
The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is a variation of the Koenigsegg CCXR. The car possesses a 4.8-litre, dual-supercharged V8 engine, with a total output of 1,004 hp and a torque of 797 lb-ft. It is one of the fastest cars in the world today. Yet, what makes this car truly special is the diamond weave carbon fibre finish used on the bodywork. The Swedish name Trevita translates as ‘three whites’. Although the company planned to create three of these cars, because of the complexity of the diamond finish, they only made two.
Lamborghini Veneno (N1, 624,500,000)
This stunning convertible is a marvel to behold because of its unique design and architecture. This 6.5-litre V12 engine, with a total output of 750hp and a torque of 507 lb-ft. was built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini. It is a race car prototype, designed with aerodynamic efficiency in mind to optimise its performance when it hits fast curves or narrow roads. Yet, the car was designed for conventional use and retains the resilience needed for everyday commute.
W Motors Lykan Hypersport (N1, 227,400,000)
The Lykan Hypersport car is a limited edition car made by W Motors. Although the car is relatively new, some might remember the car from the Furious 7 film when it crashed through three skyscrapers in Dubai. The car has 3.7-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, with a total output of 780hp and a torque of 708 lb-ft. It is also the first car to have its headlights made out of embedded jewels. The regular model has titanium LED blades with 420 diamonds. The manufacturers give the buyer a selection of rubies, diamonds and sapphires to choose from based on the colour of the car.
Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron (N1, 227,400,000)
It’s difficult to make a list of expensive luxury cars without mentioning the Bugatti Veyron. Its 8-litre W16 cylinder engine, with a total output of 1,200-hp and a torque of 922 lb-ft are features that make this car special. Other features of this beautiful work of art include: a carbon fibre body, upgraded LED lights, an accumulation spoiler package and ten radiators which all perform specialised functions—heat exchange, engine, air conditioning, engine oil, differential oil and transmission oil.
Ferrari F60 America (N902, 500,000)
This car holds a special place in the Ferrari line of cars as it was built to celebrate 60 years of Ferrari in North America. The car has a 6.3-litre V12 engine, with a total output of 730 horsepower and a torque of 509 lb-ft as part of its features. For this model, only ten of the cars were produced, making it one of the most wanted Ferrari models in decades. As a result, all the ten models were already sold before the car was announced.
