Most Expensive Cars
The Koenigsegg Trevita took number one spot, clocking in at an eye-watering $2.21 million.
Only three of these exclusive models will be made by Sweden-based Koenigsegg, hence the name; “Trevita” means “three Whites” in Sweden.
The Trevita is a white, diamond-coated version of the Koenigsegg CCXR, meaning that for the first time, the world’s most expensive car runs on biofuel.
Millionaires’ favorite the Bugatti Veyron came in second place with its Grand Sport model.
Production of the softtop began in spring 2009 and with a top speed of 406 km/h, it is the second fastest car in the world.
$2 million (€1.43m)
At number three the Pagani Cinque Roadster. This car takes advantage of the incredibly light carbon-titanium fibre body used in the previous Cinque to keep weight down at only 1 210 kg, that’s exactly the same as the Coupe.
Pagani has a zero to 100 km/h time of 3.4 seconds and a zero to 200 km/h time of 9.6 seconds, again exactly the same as the coupe.
Produced in a limited run of five.
$1.8 million (€1.29m)
The Lamborghini Reventón is not destined to remain a one-off. Less than 20 Lamborghini friends and collectors will be able to own this extraordinary car and, naturally, enjoy the incomparable pleasure of driving it.
$1.56 million (€1.12m)
Lamborghini Reventón hard top comes in at number Five. The engine hood is made of glass laminate with open ventilation slits offering a glimpse at the large 6.5-liter V12 engine. The Reventon delivers 650 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque.
The Reventon is available in only a single color, specially created for the Reventon model, and named after it. The color is a mid opaque green/grey that lacks traditional high gloss, but retains depth with the use of special metallic particles $1.42 million (€1.02m)
Maybach Landaulet comes in a number six. True to the tradition of exclusive landaulets, the semi-automatic roof can be opened fully at the rear, while the chauffeur's compartment remains completely closed.
Passengers are then able to enjoy the clear, blue sky above.
$1.4 million (€1.00m)
Koenigsegg CCXR is a derivative of the CCX, with a highly modified engine that can run on E85 and E100 Biofuel as well as normal 98 octane petrol (Europe).
When run on regular petrol, the 4.7 litre twin-supercharged Koenigsegg engine delivers 806 Bhp, but this figure rises to an astonishing 1018 Bhp when the car is run on E85 Biofuel.
$1.3 million (€932,768)
The Koenigsegg CCX comes in at number eight. The record-breaking CCX was developed to deliver superior performance - both on the track and on the road. The CCX can accelerate from 0–62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds and from 0–124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.8 seconds. Top speed is 259 mph (147 km/h) according to Koenigsegg.
Not for those looking for luxury comforts as there are no gadgets or unnecessary features on the car, only what is absolutely vital in the name of efficiency and purity according to the car builder. Production of only 25 units per year. $1.1 million (€789,265)
