A Guide To The World’s Most Expensive Cars

The World’s Most Expensive Cars in 2018

With prices that are beyond the grasp of all but the wealthiest in the world, many of these cars come from uber-exotic brands which will only be familiar to the biggest petrol heads in the game. Take a look at the 10 most expensive cars in the world for 2018!

McLaren Senna: $1 million

Named in honour of the late Formula One driver Ayrton Senna, the McLaren Senna is both street-legal and track-focused. Boasting a carbon fibre structure, a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, and 789-horsepower, the active aerodynamics keep the Senna firmly grounded at all times.

Arash AF10 Hybrid: $1.2 million

From the low-volume English car manufacturer which lays claim to ‘spaceship technology’ comes this aggressively-modelled hybrid hypercar. The AF10 Hybrid by Arash couples a 550-horsepower 6.2-litre gasoline V8 engine with 4 electric motors to create the so-called ‘Warp Drive’ configuration with a combined 2080 horsepower.

Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli: $1.2 million

Considering that only 25 units were made, the price of the Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli makes a lot of sense. This Italian carbon fibre hypercoupe is powered by a bi-turbo version of the Chevy Corvette Z06’s V8 engine – rated at 1000 horsepower – and pushes this breathtaking coupe to 60mph in 2.7 seconds with a top speed of a totally illegal 250 mph!

Zenvo TS1: $1.9 million

The two-seater TS1 comes from little-known Danish supercar builder, Zenvo, and features unique styling reinforced by the twin-supercharged 5.9-litre V8 engine with 1100 horsepower. With a top-speed of 233 mph, the TS1 will take you from 0-60 mph in a blistering 2.8 seconds.

Koenigsegg Regera: $2 million

With a name that translates to ‘reign’ – what is what many hope to do with Australian Open tennis betting – the latest supercar from Christian von Koenigsegg has a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 gasoline engine and 3 electric motors which generate 1822 horsepower combined. If that wasn’t enough, the Regera has unique ‘constellation’ daytime running lamps that shimmer as if encrusted by diamonds.

Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta: $2.2 million

The Aperta is the open-air version of the hybrid-powered LaFerrari and all 210 of the production run are already spoken for. The Aperta offers a V12 engine with 800 horsepower augmented by a 120kw electric motor for a combined output of 950 horsepower.

Pagani Huayra Roadster: $2.4 million

The ultra-exotic Pagani Huayra Roadster is powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged Mercedes Benz AMG V12 engine with 764 horsepower that will take you from 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds. With a removable top of carbon and glass, all 100 units have already been spoken for.

Bugatti Chiron: $2.7 million

The Chiron is powered by an updated version of Bugatti’s 8.0-litre W16 engine that offers 1500 horsepower and will propel you to 60 mph in a staggering 2.4 seconds.

Aston Martin Valkyrie: $3.2 million

The otherworldly Aston Martin Valkyrie was developed in partnership with Red Bull Racing and is sure to turn heads wherever it goes. With a lightweight carbon fibre structure and a mid-mounted V12 engine, the driver and passenger can sit in a reclined position that emulates a Formula One racer.

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster: $4.5 million

We have arrived at the most expensive car in the world in 2018: the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster! This open-air, barely street-legal hypercar cocoons its occupants in a highly angular aerodynamic shell and is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine which generates an astounding 740 horsepower. Like other Lamborghini’s only 9 units have been built and is named in honour of a famous fighting bull.
