The priciest rides in the world are not designed just for quickly getting from A to B. No, these rolling works of art show us something interesting about the real priorities of the super-successful. In these circles, style, bravado, and more speed than a human can ever use wins the day over practicality! All in all, these are truly mind-boggling machines. Let’s take a peek, shall we?
McLaren P1 LM ($3.6 Million)
Ralph Lauren and Jay Leno are proud McLaren race car owners, and this new edition from the company is probably a variation they will want to hear about! Why? Because this is a street legal version for everyday use that is 60 kg lighter than its professional counterpart! Looking at it, anyone can see that it is truly top of the line in design. The P1 LM is expected to be the quickest of the P1 cars, and only five will be made!
The roaring engine actually has gold plating, and the mechanics are a combination of a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 and an electric motor. A completely exposed carbon roof and light plastic windows shelter passengers to zoom around in the best of the best. Who will the lucky buyers be? Only time will tell!
Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5 Million)
We have assessed this car as — utterly stunning from all angles! Veneno actually means “poison” in Italian. Lamborghini created this modified Aventador roadster to celebrate the automaker’s 50th birthday. Only three exclusive models were actually made, and the name is perfect for a vehicle that looks downright dangerous.
Inside, the 6.5-liter V12 engine turns at 8,400 rpm. This means that the Veneno goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds, and it’s a great example where the buyer does not have to choose style over substance. This is no surprise from Lamborghini! Very, very nice.
Ferrari FXX K ($2.7 Million)
The FXX K is based on the glamorous and flashy street-legal LaFerrari model, but this is a hyper powered version for off-the-road, adrenaline-fueled fun. Production included only 40 units of this exciting car, and owners will be part of a special company program that will allow them to drive at special tracks. Data will be collected for research by the company for future car development, which means even better things are in store for the future!
Specifications include a power output of 1,050 PS and over 900 N⋅m. The electric motor is joined by a V12 engine, which has been modulated for track driving. Weighing 1,165 kg, the FXX-K can easily travel at 200 km/h. To improve aerodynamics even further, the headlights are intentionally undersized. We would love to take just one spin in this speed dreamcar!
Milan Red ($2.3 Million)
Milan Automotive is a company based in Austria that has designed an amazing hypercar without a hybrid or electric powertrain engine. The model will use a 6.2-liter V8 with 1,033 lb-ft of torque and 1,306 hp, and the transmission will be automatic. Inside, a heart rate monitor will show the driver’s changing heart rate! Just 99 cars will be produced and customized to each owner’s wishes, and we think these will be gone fast.
The car gets its name from an animal many of us do not know — the red kite, a predator bird that resides in Europe and Africa. It might be just a little bit faster than its feathery inspiration, though. Milan is advertising a speed of 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.47 seconds! The top speed will actually be 249 miles per hour. Interested in having one of your very own? We know you are, be honest.
Mercedes-AMG One ($2.5 Million)
Fifty years after the creation of Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division, a glorious piece of machinery was designed for commemoration. Behold, the Mercedes-AMG One! With an output of over 1,000 in horsepower, internal components like a Formula One racer, and luxury leather details throughout the interior, this will definitely be a hotcake in the car market for 2019. We have the feeling that these won’t be sitting on the lot for more than a few hours! Hold that thought — they probably won’t even make it there. New information has just come in!
Rumor has it that all 275 planned cars have already been sold to speed demons across the globe. Like many companies now, Mercedez is trying to stop customers from scalping these exclusive cars like concert tickets. Who even knew that was a middleman business these days? We are shocked!
Pagani Huayra BC ($2.6 Million)
Named after a god of the Incas, an AMG-sourced V12 engine make this Pagani one of the fastest street-legal cars of all time. Currently, it probably ranks second! Only 100 copies were made, and we bet you are curious what’s inside! The answer includes 1,102 lbs of downforce and a horsepower of 789, which is surprising considering how light the car actually is. The newest modern technology has produced carbon materials that allow the Huayra to weigh only 2,654 pounds while racing around the city streets.
The engine was supplied by Mercedes, but Pagani really went all out to provide a unique luxury speed car experience with its own design and vision. This model was honored as “The Hypercar of the Year” in Top Gear magazine several seasons ago, and we can see why!
Special Edition Bugatti Veyron By Mansory Vivere ($3.4 Million)
If you were waiting to see the famous Bugatti Veyron, we have a special surprise for you. Although other models are owned by the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Tom Cruise, we’re sharing the unique the Mansory Vivere version here.
This exclusive model was designed by Mansory, a car modification company based in Brand, Germany. Founded in 1989, they specialize in upgrading custom bikes and a broad range of luxury vehicles. At its core, the Veyron is a Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster, but the body of the car is a bit different. Upgraded LED lights, a unique front grille, and superior LED lights are just a few features that set this Mansory model apart from the rest of the line. Car races from history are additional unique details that are actually lasered onto the interior. Last but not least, this edition goes up to 254 miles per hour! The standard here definitely meets our expectations from Bugatti creations, and the design exceeds it.
Koenigsegg Ccxr Trevita ($4.8 Million)
The CCXR Trevita is the most expensive street-legal vehicle today. Why, you ask? Shockingly, the entire car is covered in diamonds! This innovative Swedish manufacturer created a new technology called the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave. But what exactly is this? Carbon fibers are coated with a diamond dust and sealed onto the exterior for a finish like we’ve never seen before!
Under the hood is just as impressive. A 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 engine provides the driver with plenty of power on the road. Its 797 pound-feet of torque and horsepower of 1,004 makes this choice a luxury car lover’s dream. Just three were ever made, and boxer Floyd Mayweather is one the privileged trio!
W Motors Lykan Hypersport ($3.4 Million)
The Lykan Hypersport was actually featured in the blockbuster movie Furious 7, where moviegoers watched it speed all the way through three giant buildings in Dubai! But is this close to the truth in real life? Let’s take a look at the specs. Jewel-encrusted headlights in the front and special scissor doors on the side are just the beginning. A 3.7-liter, twin-turbo flat-six engine powers this car with 770 in horsepower in case you find yourself on a real life chase in the big city.
Fun fact: The Abu Dhabi police force has drafted the Hypersport into patrol duty, and this ensures that the authorities can keep up with even the most ambitious criminals that try to outrun them on the freeway. With a maximum speed of 240 miles per hour, this one is very impressive, indeed!
Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio ($3 Million)
The Ferrari Sergio is one of the most highly desired vehicles in the world today. Why? Only six were ever made! Ferrari collaborated with Italian design house Pininfarina to upgrade their basic Ferrari 458 Spider concept with hot new features for the choosiest high-end collectors.
The engine is a 4.5-liter V8 with 562 horsepower and a lighter frame than its predecessor. Aerodynamic headrests are installed directly into the roll cage, and other details have been upgraded. We know you’re interested in getting your hands on one of these at this point, but you should know that this was already an inside job: Each owner was selected by Ferrari, and they are all gone!
Icona Vulcano Titanium ($2.78 Million)
We’ve never seen anything like this one! The Icona Vulcano Titanium is car with an exterior made of an unusual material: Titanium, and entirely titanium! Apparently, this unique piece of mechanical speed took more than 10,000 hours to finish. Titanium is notoriously difficult to work with, and perhaps that is why this project really is an ambitious one. No one has ever produced this before! On that detail alone, it’s easy to see where the price tag comes from. The company describes this model as “Beauty and the Beast” in car form. Let’s take a look inside!
A V8 engine was designed for road and race use by drivers, depending on their mood. Zero to 100 km/hr takes only 2.8 seconds if you decide to fully accelerate. An impressive everyday car! We are pretty sure that this would be the choice of Superman himself on his off time. We can’t wait to see what other futuristic concepts this company comes up with next!
Rolls-Royce Sweptail ($13 Million)
Rolls-Royce is definitely a symbol of luxury, but there are levels within levels of prestige within the company that few can get their hands on. This brings us to the Sweptail, a single design model commissioned by a customer directly.
The design is clearly inspired by classic RR styles, but we think this customer had a little bit of experience with super-yachts. Just look at the details! The style does appear to be a combination of the two. This car actually took four years to complete, and the cost certainly reflects that fact. Rumor has it that the lone buyer was somewhere in the middle east, so be on the look out when you’re in the area!
Mercedes-benz Maybach Exelero ($8 Million)
Ranking as one of the most expensive cars on our list, the Maybach Exelero’s final design was done by several students at the Transportation Design School of Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences. Fun facts: Jay-Z featured the Exelero in the “Lost One” music video, and the car was also purchased by rapper Birdman several years ago.
Specifications on this two-door include a twin turbo V12 engine which produces 752 ft⋅lbs of torque at 2500 rpm. The Exelero has a top speed of 218 mph with an acceleration time of 4.4 seconds! Alloy wheels and Fulda Carat tires are helped by an anti-lock braking system, and the interior has leather sport seats with special red seat belts. A magnificent addition for any serious collector!
Bugatti Chiron ($2.9 Million)
The Chiron was the next stage of luxury and speed for Bugatti after its success with the popular Veyron model. A quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine results in a horsepower of 1,500! It only takes 2.5 seconds to get from 0-100km/hr. Few of us really know what that power feels like! While this may sound intimidating, only 500 collectors will be able to take this on and conquer the road. What lies inside?
The facts: 800 liters of water per minute flow through the engine to make sure that this machine is more than functional and operates at top performance at all times. The roof of the Chiron comes with a skyview option, and the interior is opulent leather. Of course it is! The company website says that this model is actually “the fastest, most powerful, and exclusive production super sports car in Bugatti’s history”. Buyers will be pleased with the masterpiece in design and speed!
Bugatti Divo ($5.8 Million)
If you liked the Chiron, say hello to the Bugatti Divo. Named after a famous race car driver, this model is even more aerodynamic than its predecessor. But what is the difference? Besides being much more exclusive at a production cap of only 40, Bugatti claims the Divo “is made for corners.”
The Divo has 1,005 pounds of downforce, which is actually an upgrade of 198 pounds. It is wider than the Chiron, but it is actually a bit slower. Overall, this model is said to be the best-performing car that the small luxury company makes at present. And all 40 cars are already sold! The buyers were previous Chiron owners, and it looks like they have the best of both worlds to choose from depending on their mood. We are waiting for resale!
Aston Martin Valkyrie ($2.6 Million)
Aston Martin has set the release of this unbelievable electric model for 2019, the result of an intriguing new partnership between the company and the Red Bull Racing Formula One team. The Valkyrie will have a lightweight carbon fiber baseframe and a 6.5-liter V12 hybrid powertrain system. Innovation at its finest, luxury worthy of the Aston Martin name.
On the racetrack, the professional version of the Valkyrie will have unbelievable levels of downforce. The plan is to compete with a Le Mans LMP1 race car, used in the top contests in the world! This car will not be mass produced: 150 lucky speed enthusiasts will have the chance at purchase, and most will be roadsters.
Ferrari F60 America ($2.6 Million)
Only ten models were produced of this compact and perfected city Ferrari convertible. What was unique about this mini line? Ferrari wanted to celebrate the United States with a blue and red color choice and flag decorated seat inserts. With six decades on the continent, America is definitely land of the free and home of the Ferrari.
The F60 has a very light fabric top for the time you are not racing down the highway on a sunny day at speeds up to 75 miles per hour. The model boasts a 6.2-liter V12 engine that can go from 0-60 in just 3.1 seconds! Small, but unmistakably Ferrari-powerful.
Aston Martin Vulcan ($2.3 Million)
The iconic relationship between James Bond and Aston Martin will be remembered forever. Since the original films, a little bit more has been happening behind the scenes. The Vulcan is one of the newest and hottest creations by the independent British brand, but just know that this one is generally not legal to drive on public roads. This sportscar is for collectors, and only 24 were made!
A naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V12 engine powers this speed demon, and it boasts more than 800 in horsepower. Interestingly, the unique structure of this model has a superior power-to-weight ratio when compared to an actual race car! Aston Martin actually requires prior training in a different top speed car before buying the Vulcan, which is more than a little intense. We’d like to think we could handle this one, but we can’t be sure as mere onlookers!
McLaren Speedtail ($2.2 Million)
Well, well. Another McLaren has made the list, and we are not surprised. The Speedtail was inspired by the classic McLaren F1, and it has some similarities in design. It seats three people in a single row, but the driver actually sits in the middle!
The atypical specs do not stop there. The Speedtail can reach 403km/h and it does so faster than any other McLaren model – even the F1. The aerodynamic design is definitely pleasing to the eye, and we are not surprised to know that the entire lot of these was sold out immediately! The stock was higher than some of the other limited edition options on this list, but clearly 106 units was not enough!
Bugatti La Voiture Noire ($19 Million)
Last but not least, we have the world’s most expensive new car for 2019. For those that might remember a little bit of their high school french, the name translates quite simply to ‘The Black Car’. Simple name, not so simple price tag! Why $19 million, you ask? It turns out that this car is the only one of its kind ever made. Let’s find out a bit more.
This very special Bugatti was actually designed by Jean Bugatti, the oldest son of the founder. During WWII, Ettore Bugatti had a very special all black car that went missing! This unique design memorializes the original, but its internal parts have clearly gotten an upgrade. A 16-cylinder engine means a horsepower of 1,500 for its lucky driver, and we think we know who that person is. Rumors say that it belongs to a former Volkswagen chairman, and that it was bought immediately upon offer by this mysterious person. One of a kind, without question.
