5 of the Most Expensive Cars in the World
Cars are not cheap at all, one of the cheapest cars you can find to but brand new nowadays is going to cost you at least $14,000 or more. That is the reason many people buy preowned cars, fist off it saves you money and second is that the minute you buy a new car and drive it out of the dealer lot it already loses value and would be considered pre-owned if you changed your mind after a couple of weeks or even a few days. Here is a list of 5 of the most expensive cars in the world, these cars are only affordable to people with lots of money and nothing to do with it, or for people with a very expensive taste in cars that they plan on adding to a collection or starting a new one with. These cars cost a lot to buy and I am sure the insurance on them is also sky high.
5 – Saleen S7 Twin Turbo
The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is another amazing supercar, but it was only made in limited production which makes he cost high but a great investment because the value will only go up if it is taken care of and mileage doesn’t get really high. The car is all hand built, unlike many cars today that are built mainly by machines with a persons help and guidance. Saleen has many models of vehicles that you can buy, but this car is one of a kind and even the chassis is different than any other Saleen models. The cars top speed is around 240 miles per hour and it will cost you about $500,000, so it is not cheap but still affordable for collectors that make a decent living.
4 – Ferrari Enzo
The Ferrari Enzo is a well known car; it is actually named after the founder of the Ferrari Company, Enzo Ferrari. The price tag is not as hefty as some of the others listed and one could be attained for around $660,000. That is still a hefty price for your normal middle class working family man, but many would be willing to make the investment if they had the means to and bought it as a collector car. At the same time it is hard to just have it sit there in a collection since it is such a beautiful car. The value will still remain high if the mileage stays low, so maybe you are a collector and want one, just try to only drive it once a year for a small cruise If you want it to increase in value over the years. This is another car that will easily go over 200 mph, so it can be a dangerous car for an inexperienced driver of powerful vehicles.
3 – McClaren F1
This car is another expensive and extremely fast car, many people may know the McClaren name if they are familiar with F1 racing at all, they are one of the top cars in the F1 racing series. It is another one of the fastest cars in the world, which can hit well over 200 miles per hour as a top speed. Just the company whose name is on the car makes the cars price tag so high, because they are well known for making high performance and high quality cars. The car was originally made in the late 90’s, and even the first models are still just as fast as any supercars you can get your hands on today, and they are also higly sought after by collectors of super cars. The McClaren F1 goes for just under a million dollars so it is affordable for collectors that may not exactly be millionaires because if it is bought for the purpose of collecting and not driving then the value will just go up and is a good investment for those into high end motor vehicles.
2 – Bugatti Veyron
Another car that can cost more than many will make in a lifetime, this car goes for about $1,700,000.00 and it is one of the fastest street legal cars in the world with top speeds of about 260 miles per hour. It was designed by Volkswagen, the well known Germany car company and it is manufactured in France at the Bugatti headquarters. The car is named after a famous race car driver from decades back, Pierre Veyron, who drove a Bugatti Model back then and won a 24 hour Lemans race in a Bugatti vehicle. This car was also named one of the cars of the decade of 200-2009 by a British television car show.
1 – Koenigsegg Trevita
This car is one of the most expensive, if not THE most expensive car in the world with a price tag of around 2 million dollars. It is also one of the fastest cars that you can buy if you have that kind of money and like to drive fast. The car is made in Sweden and it was a limited model, there are only 3 of them so that explains the price tag somewhat, and the name even means “Three White” in Swedish. The car is insanely fast, it can go around 250 miles per hour at top speed, but I highly doubt anyone that spends that kind of money on a car will be going even half of that speed in it, why risk it for such a rare and expensive car. It can also hit around 60 miles per hour in just about 2 seconds, which is amazing. I am sure this is a car many people drool over and wish they could own, but with the price tag and only 3 of them you just have to keep on dreaming.
