ROLLS-ROYCE BOAT TAIL: $26.2 MILLION
This 18.7-foot-long convertible with its vintage and modern design is powered by a twin-turbo V12 (6.75 liters for 563 horsepower) and 8-speed automatic transmission.
BUGATTI LA VOITURE NOIRE: $18.1 MILLION
Inspired by the Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic, everything about this hypercar is exceptional: An 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine with 1,500 horsepower, assembled by hand.
PAGANI ZONDA HP BARCHETTA: $17.9 MILLION
Horacio Pagani – from the eponymous firm – had this concept car built for him and two other lucky unknown owners. If this roadster made a lot of noise when it was presented, it remains an enigma: Its technical information is, at least at the moment, a mystery.
ROLLS-ROYCE SWEPTAIL: $13.2 MILLION
This is another concept car that calls itself the “automotive equivalent of haute couture”. And besides looking good, it has power under the hood to the rhythm of a V12 engine with 453 horsepower.
BUGATTI CENTODIECI: $9.1 MILLION
Inspired by a tribute to the Bugatti EB110 and built on a Bugatti Chiron base, the “110” has a lot going for it. You get 1,600 horsepower and an 8-liter W16 with a top speed of 236 miles per hour. Boom!
LAMBORGHINI VENENO: $8.3 MILLION
Let’s go back to the future of the automobile with the Lamborghini Veneno, a roadster that defies the law of gravity with its cosmic curves inspired by aeronautics. This hypercar, produced only nine times, cannot fly but can reach 221 miles per hour with its 6.5-liter V12.
MAYBACH EXELERO: $8 MILLION
This coupe was ordered by a tire brand, Fulda, to test and promote a new series of tires. The exercise was a success: its performance on the track was stellar because of its 5.9-liter engine and 700 horsepower.
BUGATTI DIVO: $5.7 MILLION
What do the 40 owners of the Bugatti Divo have in common? They all own a Bugatti Chiron as well. While the two luxury cars are similar (the same 8-liter W16 engine with 1,500 hp and a similar interior), the Divo stands out for its exceptional design.
KOENIGSEGG CCXR TREVITA: $4.8 MILLION
The limited-edition CCXR was only produced twice, and the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is less known than its “sisters” but is no less powerful and fast: It goes from 0 to 124 mph in 8.75 seconds.
ASPARK OWL: $3.3 MILLION
This Japanese supercar is not technically the 10th most expensive car in the world, but it is the most expensive electric car in the world. It is also the fastest electric car! Made only 50 times, it has four super-powerful electric motors that make it go from 0 to 60 mph in 1.69 seconds, a record.
