1. Bugatti La Voiture Noire: $12.5 Million
Top 10 Word's Most Expensive Cars Of All Time

With a price tag of $12.5 million and a selling price of $18.7 million after taxes, the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire is officially most expensive new car ever. And understandably. A modern interpretation of Jean Bugatti's personal Type 57 SC Atlantic, the La Voiture Noire uses the same quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine as the Chiron, producing 1,479 horsepower (1,102 kilowatts) and 1,600 Newton-meters (1,180 pound-feet) of torque. It has six – that's right, six exhaust tips, radical new wheels, an aggressive, bespoke fascia, and a gigantic light-up badge out back that spells out the name of the brand. Of course, this one-of-one Bugatti already has a home.

A pioneering spirit, passion for perfection and the desire to continually redefine its limits have been the key characteristics of BUGATTI since it was founded 110 years ago. None of the brand’s masterpieces reflect these values more impressively than the Type 57 SC Atlantic. Created by Ettore Bugatti’s eldest son Jean, the only four Atlantics ever created stand for pure elegance and sophistication.

With its homage to the fourth, all-black Atlantic, missing since the Second World War, BUGATTI is bringing the speed, technology, luxury and aesthetics of an icon into a new era. But the customised creation of “La Voiture Noire” is far more than a modern interpretation of the ghost of the gran turismo. “La Voiture Noire” is a tribute to BUGATTI’s own history, a manifesto of the BUGATTI aesthetic and a piece of automotive haute couture.

2. Rolls-Royce Sweptail: $12.8 Million
Rolls-Royce Sweptail: $12.8 Million

The Rolls-Royce Sweptail is a one-off large luxury car made in the United Kingdom by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Technically the Rolls-Royce Sweptail claimed the title "world's most expensive car" in 2017. Problem is, Rolls-Royce didn't officially confirm that number, meaning the next car on our list takes home the title. But at an estimated $12.8 million, the one-off Sweptail outpriced the next-most-expensive vehicle by a jaw-dropping $5 million (if reports are true). The Rolls-Royce Sweptail took more than four years to develop before its debut at the 2017 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.

3. Mercedes-Maybach Exelero: $8 Million
Mercedes-Maybach Exelero: $8 Million

The Exelero is powered by a twin turbo V12 engine made by the defunct Maybach (now a part of the Mercedes-Benz division of Daimler AG, and mounted at 60º. Each cylinder has 3 valves, and a compression ratio of 9.2:1. The engine produces 700 PS (690 hp; 515 kW) at 5000 rpm and 752 ft⋅lb (1,020 N⋅m) of torque at 2500 rpm.

The Exelero has a top speed of 351 km/h (218 mph) and a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time of 4.4 seconds.

Like many others before it, the Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero is a one-off. Commissioned by Fulda, a German subsidiary of Goodyear, to test its new tires, the Exlero debuted in 2004. Mercedes built the Exelero on the bones of a Maybach, and gave it the same twin-turbo V12 engine producing 690 horsepower (510 kilowatts) and 752 pound-feet (1,020 Newton-meters) of torque. Top speed is listed at 218 miles per hour (350 kilometers per hour) and adjusted for inflation, the Exelero would cost more than $10 million in today's money.

4. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita: $4.8 Million
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita: $4.8 Million

The Koenigsegg CCX is a mid-engine sports car manufactured by Swedish automotive manufacturer Koenigsegg Automotive AB. The project began with the aim of making a global car, designed and engineered to comply with global safety and environment regulations, particularly to enter the United States car market. 

To sell cars in the US many alterations were made to the design of the CCR; the previously used Ford Modular engine was replaced by an in-house developed Koenigsegg engine designed to run on 91 octane fuel, readily available in the United States, and to meet the Californian emission standards.

Koenigsegg introduced it's "most-affordable" model, the Jesko, this year in Geneva. But the diamond-coated, $4.8-million CCXR Trevita sits on the opposite end of the Koenigsegg price spectrum. Finished in a proprietary Diamond Weave finish exterior (essentially carbon fiber covered in diamonds), the Koenigsegg is motivated by a twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V8 with 1,004 horsepower and 797 pound-feet of torque. The company built just three examples before discontinuing the CCX for good.

The name CCX is an abbreviation for Competition Coupé X, the X commemorating the 10th anniversary (X being the Roman numeral for ten) of the completion and test drive of the first CC prototype in 1996.

5. Lamborghini Veneno: $4.5 Million
Lamborghini Veneno: $4.5 Million

The Lamborghini Veneno is a limited production high performance sports car manufactured by Italian automobile manufacturer Lamborghini. Based on the Lamborghini Aventador, the Veneno was developed to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary. It was introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. When introduced, it had a price of US$4,000,000, which makes it the one of the most expensive production cars in the world.

The prototype, Car Zero, is finished in Grigio Telesto (medium grey) and includes an Italian flag vinyl on both sides of the car.

Lamborghini built just 14 examples of the Aventador-based Veneno between 2014 and 2015. Each one cost around $4.5 million, depending on how it was spec'd, and was available in both convertible and coupe configurations. Underhood Lamborghini fitted a more-powerful iteration of the Aventador's 6.5-liter V12, now producing 740 horsepower (552 kilowatts) and 509 pound-feet (609 Newton-meters) of torque, which gave it the ability to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in a blistering 2.9 seconds. To date, it’s the most expensive new Lamborghini ever.

6. W Motors Lykan Hypersport: $3.4 Million
W Motors Lykan Hypersport: $3.4 Million

The Lykan Hypersport is a Lebanese limited production supercar manufactured by W Motors, a United Arab Emirates based company, founded in 2012 in Lebanon with the collaboration of Lebanese, and Italian engineers. It is the first sports car to be designed and produced indigenously in the Middle East.

Dubai-based W Motors shocked the world with its edgy Lykan Hypersport supercar in 2013. With titanium LED headlights housing 420 15-carat diamonds and a holographic display in the center console, it's no surprise it was the third most expensive car ever when new. It falls to number six on our list here, but it's still a wild hypercar with a powerful heart; the twin-turbocharged 3.7-liter six-cylinder engine underhood produces 780 horsepower (581 kilowatts) and 708 (960 Newton-meters) of torque.

7. Bugatti Veyron Vivere By Mansory: $3.4 Million
Bugatti Veyron Vivere By Mansory: $3.4 Million

The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is a mid-engine sports car, designed and developed in Germany by the Volkswagen Group and manufactured in Molsheim, France, by French automobile manufacturer Bugatti. It was named after the racing driver Pierre Veyron.

The original version has a top speed of 407 km/h (253 mph). It was named Car of the Decade and best car award (2000–2009) by the BBC television programme Top Gear. The standard Bugatti Veyron also won Top Gear's Best Car Driven All Year award in 2005.

The Super Sport version of the Veyron is recognized by Guinness World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph). The Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse was the fastest roadster in the world, reaching an averaged top speed of 408.84 km/h (254.04 mph) in a test on 6 April 2013.

This Veyron gets an asterisk because technically it wasn't produced by Bugatti. The Veyron Vivere was a limited edition build by tuners Mansory. Either way, it's ridiculous, and its estimated $3.4 million price tag puts it well within the realm of one of the most expensive cars ever. The company built just two examples, each with an outrageous carbon-fiber accented exterior, a black and white leather-and-carbon cabin, and a 1,200-horsepower (894-kilowatt) Veyron engine underneath. Top speed is a blistering 254 miles per hour (408 kilometers per hour).

8. Bugatti Chiron Sport: $3.3 Million
Bugatti Chiron Sport: $3.3 Million

The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engine two-seater sports car developed and manufactured in Molsheim, France by French automobile manufacturer Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron. The Chiron was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show on 1 March 2016.

At $3.3 million ($3.26 million, to be exact), the Bugatti Chiron Sport one-ups its sibling with a more impressive price tag. Unveiled this time last year at the Geneva Motor Show, the Chiron Sport is mechanically identical to the standard Chiron, with the same quad-turbocharged W16 engine producing 1,479 horsepower (1,103 kilowatts), but it's lighter by 40 pounds (18 kilograms) thanks to all that extra carbon fiber, and stiffer, too. While the regular Chiron excels in straight line speed, the added dynamics and reduced weight make this Chiron a Bugatti for the track.

9. Aston Martin Valkyrie: $3.2 Million
Aston Martin Valkyrie: $3.2 Million

The Aston Martin Valkyrie (also called through its code-names as AM-RB 001 and Nebula) is a limited production hybrid sports car collaboratively built by British automobile manufacturer Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing and several other manufacturers.

Aston Martin’s new hybrid hypercar hasn’t even hit the market yet, but already the $3.2 million Valkyrie has sold out. For what it’s worth, Aston Martin hasn’t officially released pricing. Estimates suggest the hypercar could go for anywhere between $2.6 and $3.9 million – but $3.2 million seems to be the magic number.

Whatever the case, this machine is impressive. Its Cosworth-sourced 6.5-liter V12 produces 1,160 horsepower (865 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque, meaning its top speed should be well over 200 miles per hour (321 kilometers per hour). The company will build just 150 examples of the standard Valkyrie, with a limited 25-run AMR model arriving later.

10. Ferrari Sergio Pininfarina: $3 Million
Ferrari Sergio Pininfarina: $3 Million

The Pininfarina Sergio is a concept car produced by the Italian design house Pininfarina. It was presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show as a tribute to the former chairman of the company and the infamous automotive designer, Sergio Pininfarina, who died on 3 July 2012.

Probably one of the prettiest cars on this list, the Ferrari Sergio Pininfarina costs a hearty $3 million. Ferrari built just six examples of the car in 2015 and sold them to a half-dozen hand-picked customers. Based on the 458, the Ferrari Sergio produced 562 horsepower (419 kilowatts) thanks to a 4.5-liter V8.
