So if you’re a luxury car enthusiast, who enjoys updating yourself on the latest info concerning luxury cars and their features, here is a post that will give you real value for your cravings.
1. Lykan Hypersport – $3.4 million
The first car on this list of top most expensive modern cars is the Lykan Hypersport made by W Motors from Lebanon. It is the first Arab supercar ever made. Made into an armored car shaped with scissor doors, Lykan Hypersport came with headlights made of 240 15-carat diamonds and LED blades made of 420 15-carat diamonds, making the car a true gem. Aside having awesome looks, it has great speed as well. In fact, it has the capacity to do a 62 in just 2.8 seconds, with speeds of up to 240 mph. The Lykan Hypersport is worth $3.4 million.
2. McLaren P1 LM – $3.6 million
There are just five units of McLaren P1 LM in production and were made for a select group of buyers in the U. S., Japan, U. K., and the UAE. The McLaren P1 LM is road version of the track-only McLaren P1 GTR. And just like the McLaren P1 GTR, it came with gold plated engine bay of 3.8 liter twin-turbo V-8. However, with a weight of 132 pounds, this car is much smarter than the McLaren P1 GTR. All the 5 units produced are already sold out at $3.6 million each.
3. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster – $4.5 million
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was manufactured to celebrate the company’s 50th birthday. It was only 9 units of this car that were manufactured and there were lots of scrambles around it by people who want to buy one to themselves. This extremely admirable car has great speeds of up to 60 mph at 2.9 seconds. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster came with a 6.5 liter V12 and a seven-speed single clutch ISR automated manual transmission that spins at 8,400 rpm to produce 740 horsepowers and 507 pound-feet of torque. Each unit of Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was sold for $4.5 million.
4. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – $4.8 million
The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is arguably the most expensive street-legal production car in the world due to its carbon fibre technology. Only two units of this car ever produced. Coated with real diamonds, ‘Trevita’ (meaning ‘three whites’) comes with a 4.8 liter, dual-supercharged V8 engine with a total output of 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque. This makes it well-equipped at overtaking semis in the freeway. Other unique features of this car include: a one-of-its-kind dual carbon rear wing, ABS powered carbon ceramic brakes, paddle-shift, iconell exhaust system, infotainment system, and a unique tire monitoring system. This unique vehicle is sold for $4.8 million.
5. Sweptail by Rolls Royce – $13 million
No doubt, the price of this car is breathtaking. However, before you start the calculations, we want you to know that this car is off the market. The car was actually manufactured to the specification of an undisclosed customer. It comes with its custom coach work, exclusive seats for two, panoramic sunroof, handcrafted wood and leather interior, as well as hidden attaché cases for holding laptops behind each door. It’s indeed incredible. This one-of-its-kind super-yacht car is worth a breathtaking price of $13 million.
