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.
