Default Most Expensive SuperCars

Came across an article from Forbes for the most expensive super cars (read exotics) in the world. The leader is not a surprising one followed by the uber exclusive 599xx.
  • Bugatti Veyron Supersport: $2.6 million
  • Ferrari 599XX: $2 million
  • Zenvo ST1: $1.8 million
  • Koenigsegg Agera R: $1.7 million
  • Aston Martin One-77: $1.4 million
  • Maybach Landaulet: $1.4 million
  • Pagani Huayra: $1.3 million
  • Hennessey Venom GT: $1 million
  • SSC Tuatara: $970,000
  • Porsche 918 Spyder: $845,000

My favorite is ST1, predators anyone?. God its so menacing, you can actually have bad dreams seeing one, even worse if it flies past you growling.

Just thought that the list would be more complete with a snapshot of each of the cars. Sure, one can 'Google' each one of them, but I thought it would be better to have pics for easy reference. And some of those cars, never heard of them till now. I guess that's what makes them exclusive

Bugatti Veyron Supersport:


Ferrari 599XX:


Zenvo ST1:


Koenigsegg Agera R:


Aston Martin One-77:


Maybach Landaulet:


Pagani Huayra:


Hennessey Venom GT:


SSC Tuatara:


Porsche 918 Spyder:


Of the lot, my favourite is the One77

And when did the Maybach Landaulet become a Supercar? It's just a fancy limo, IMO.

Some of these cars aren't available to the public or anyone yet. The 918 Spyder, for instance, is just a prototype. Porsche's next supercar would be based largely on the 918 Spyder. Although they have mentioned a limited run, does that allow it to be on the list? In that case, the Lamborghini Reventon as well. And the Ferrari FXX. And the Ferrari P4/5. Sorry, I know, I'm pushing it.

And the SSC Tuatara isn't on sale yet, is it?

(predictably, the American Supercar is the cheapest in the list )

The Ferrari P4 was a one off car built for some heavily loaded businessman. They have never made another or dont intend to. I hear the car was based on the 599 but designed to look like a modern version of the legendary P4.

Doesnt the Ascari also feature in the top ten?

Just read in the latest auto bild about the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante, which is a one-off car and could be priced at roughly 500,000 - 750,000 euros

Shocking nobody has mentioned
the 911 GT1, MC12, and even the CLK GTR.

These cars are only going up in price!

James Glickenhaus is the name of the heavily loaded businessman and the car looks as hideous as his last name. Oh btw sorry to be pedantic but the car is based on the Enzo and not the 599

Bloomberg reports that a 1962 Ferrari GTO has been sold for $35 million, making it the most expensive car in the world. The record price eclipses the $32 million paid for a 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO back in February and the $30-34 million dished out for a 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic back in 2010.

1962 Ferrari 250 GTO made for Stirling Moss becomes world's most expensive car

Lets not involve these auction-only look-I-can-pay-even-higher cars, they're legendary due to the era they were built in, none of them would offers specs anywhere closer to today. The list of these is endless ranging from these rare GTOs to lancias, minis, mustangs of 60s and all the ones from Mr McQueen's collection etc etc...

And yes also lets not put these maybachs etc too as they're super comfortable sofa sets with V8/V10/W16 in them.
