Such specimens are much more than just transport. These are true works of art
In the selection were only modern machines that are really designed for driving, not for beauty. Moreover, each car brand could get only one place in the list, otherwise, at least, half of it would be devoted to limited versions of Bugatti Veyron, and the rest – to Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren. They say that money can not buy happiness, but by looking at this list, there is a chance to change your mind.
1. Rolls-Royce Sweptail – $ 12.8 million
It’s haute couture cars. This is the embodiment of the absolute dream of a concrete customer in a single copy (alas, “Togo-Who-Can-Not-Be-named”, because anonymity is above all). Inspiration for the coupe with a large panoramic roof and bevelled rear steel are not only Rolls-Royce images of the 20s – 30s, but also elegant streamlined forms of modern yachts. The car turned out truly royal and dynamic, causing associations with a flying bullet. All interior decoration is based on the principle of visual and tactile contrast, and the instrument panel is absolutely minimal: there is only one control. The final stroke is the identification number and registration number “08”, both figures of which are made of solid aluminum and polished by hand. Recall that the entire model was collected manually. The true Rolls-Royce is one of a kind.
2. Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero – $ 8 million
This copy was built in 2004 at the request of Fulda Tires, who wanted to use it to demonstrate their high-tech line of tires. Maybach designed this single model as an interpretation of the legendary sports car of the 30s. Estimated cost was $ 8 million, but, given the inflation, it would now be about $ 10.1 million (almost like the GDP of a small island nation). The twin turbocharged V12 engine delivers 700 hp. with a maximum speed of 217.4 Miles
3. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – $ 4.8 million
For Trevita, the Swedish manufacturer has developed a special coating – the branded diamond weaving Koenigsegg – from carbon fibers with diamond resin. Under the brilliant finish is a 4.8-liter twin-cylinder V8 engine with a capacity of 1004 hp. Only 3 copies were produced, which does not detract from the value of the car.
4. Lamborghini Veneno – $ 4.5 million
Veneno, translated from Spanish – “poison”, and it is this name that the brand has chosen for its modified version of Aventador. In total, 9 Veneno Roadster models were manufactured to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the automaker. Veneno even more like a spaceship from a foreign planet than a sports car. The 6.5-liter V12 engine with 740 hp. allows you to accelerate to almost 62.1 Miles in 2.9 seconds. Impressively. Honored place in our list.
5. McLaren P1 LM – $ 3.7 million
This year, at the legendary Nurburgring, the new LM not only became the fastest road car, but also broke the absolute track record. The new flagship accelerates in 2.4 seconds to 100 km / h, the maximum speed – 217.4 Miles, power – 775 hp. This model – one of the most interesting in the lineup, is the successor of McLaren F1. The circulation is limited to 6 copies.
6. W Motors Lykan Hypersport – $ 3.4 million and Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Vivere – $ 3.4 million
Lykan Hypersport managed to take part almost in the main role in the seventh “Fast and Furious”, in which the Lebanese supercar flew not through one, but as many as 3 skyscrapers in Dubai. Style Lykan Hypersport attracts and attracts. The headlights are cut with precious stones, and the interior is like from science fiction, creating the image of an armored car from the future.
Hypersport boasts a 3.7-liter engine that produces 770 hp. It turns out that not only Dominique Toretto chose this copy for his performance, but the Abu Dhabi police use it for patrolling. Not bad. Pedal to the floor, for 2.8 seconds to 62.1 Miles, and a maximum of almost 242.3 Miles, so no criminal will escape from the chase.
The 6th line with Lykan Hypersport shares the limited version of Bugatti. Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Vivere is not only one of the fastest cars, but also the most expensive. The power of 1200 hp Veyron. decorated with a carbon fiber body, new spoilers, upgraded LEDs and redesigned front. Moreover, historical races like Targa Florio are engraved on its exterior and interior. The maximum speed is 253.5 Miles.
7. Aston Martin Valkyrie – $ 3.2 million

The 6.5-liter V12 promises to produce 1130 hp instead of the previously announced 1000 hp. Next year it is planned to start production of 150 cars. Well, we are waiting impatiently.
8. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio – $ 3 million
Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio for $ 3 million – not the most expensive car on the list, but one of the most coveted, because only 6 models were designed. Sergio is, in fact, the Ferrari 458 Spider with a new body and interior. The 4.5-liter V8 ships 562 hp. on the rear wheels, but since the Sergio is lighter than the 458, it is faster and has better performance.
9. Pagani Huayra BC – $ 2.6 million
With the V12 engine, the Pagani Huayra is a real “beast” on the road, named after the Inca god of the winds. In 2016, the Geneva Motor Show was presented with a new Huayra BC – a light version equipped with a huge active rear spoiler, which generates almost 500 kg of clamping force at a speed of 250 km / h. BC – a real champion in featherweight, stopped at a mark of weights of 1200 kg due to the use of carbon fiber and other light materials. A total of 20 copies were produced, which, unfortunately, have already been sold.
10. Laraki Epitome – $ 2 million
Mad madrockan supercar from Laraki Motors, which appeared in 2013. Acceleration to 62.1 Miles in 3 seconds, and a maximum speed of 205 Miles. Built on the basis of Chevrolet Corvette C6 with 7-liter engines and a pair of turbines, the car produces 1200 hp, and maybe 1750 hp, if we use a miracle gasoline with an octane number of 110. A total of 9 copies is a worthy completion of our rating .
