These are the most expensive cars of all time, and you won’t believe their worth. Throughout the years, we’ve seen some incredible vehicles that have carried equally impressive price tags:
20. Koenigsegg Jesko, $2.8 million
Anyone with the privilege of opening the doors of a Koenigsegg knows that something extraordinary lies inside. This couldn’t be truer than in the case of the Jesko, as it seems that Koenigsegg’s capabilities get even more outlandish and unmatched with each passing year when a new car is released. With up to 1,603 horsepower, a top speed that we don’t even know yet, and creature comforts like power-adjustable seats and Apple CarPlay, the Jesko might be the best Koenigsegg yet.

19. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio, $3 million
This car is a tribute to design house Pininfarina’s late former chairman, Sergio Pininfarina; this 458-based Barchetta is a beautiful tribute to the spirits of both Ferrari and Pininfarina alike. Pininfarina’s signature sweeping lines make the car an ultra-futuristic, sculpted, and serene vehicle, with design elements that echo the iconic Ferrari Pininfarina Mythos concept of the 90s. Such an artful statement is undoubtedly worth its price.
18. Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, $3.3 million
Bugatti calls it the purest Bugatti Chiron ever. There are substantial improvements in the chassis, gearbox, and engine to back that claim up. To the onlooker, styling cues like the number on the grille echo Bugatti’s rich and proud racing heritage. If you want a Bugatti that strives to achieve the pinnacle of driving experience, the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport is likely your best bet.
17. Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron, $3.4 million
Mansory is a German coachbuilder known for making some of the most exciting, rare, luxurious, and expensive cars we’ve ever seen. One of their most significant efforts is the Vivere Bugatti Veyron, a modified Veyron with a signature V design and an impossibly classic black-and-white color scheme. Few cars match its price, but even fewer match its level of sophistication.
16. W Motors Lykan Hyper Sport, $3.4 million
This car became quite notorious when it was seen skyscraper-hopping in Fast and Furious 7, but the Lykan Hyper Sport is an infamous exotic car. Having doors that are somehow both suicide and scissor doors, a holographic interior display, and literal diamonds in the headlights, W Motors didn’t even need a movie to get people talking about the Lykan.

15. Pagani Huayra Roadster BC, $3.5 million
It is supposed to be the last Pagani Huayra, and that’s no surprise because it’s a car fit for a grand finale. Only 40 samples exist, and they are as gorgeous as they are powerful. A bright silver, black, and red color scheme with tan leather seats and a distinctive wood shift knob give the car the elegant, sporty look that only the best in the automotive world can offer.
14. Lamborghini Sian, $3.6 million
The Sian is Lamborghini’s boldest and most innovative effort yet, with a hybrid system that uses lithium-ion supercapacitors to its advantage, making for a hybrid that doesn’t compromise weight for immense power. Drivers expect 819 horsepower, 2.8 seconds to reach 60 mph, and a top speed of over 220 mph. The design inspiration coming from the Countach, even briefly, the Sian is unmistakably iconic.
13. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300 Plus And Chiron Super Sport, $3.9 million
It’s human nature to try to improve, to test the limits of whatever is in front of you. But nobody has done that quite like Bugatti for the past 15 years. They changed the world when the Veyron was found to be capable of 253 mph, and now they are changing the world again because the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is capable of speeds above 300 miles per hour. The price can easily be justified for the chance to travel at that velocity alone.
12.Lamborghini Veneno, $4.5 million
The Lamborghini, packed full of incredible innovation and stirring design, is worth all the hype and all the money, not least because it was a clear symbol to the world that Lamborghini had entered a new era. Squeezing 740 brake horsepower out of the Aventador’s V12 was the first part of the equation, with an entirely new but still very Lamborghini body design optimized for cooling and aerodynamics. The Veneno was and is one of Lamborghini’s greatest icons.

11.Bugatti Bolide, $4.6 million
The Bugatti Bolide is what happens when one of the world’s most historic automakers goes all out for the sake of performance. When it was first revealed, Bugatti had planned for this hypercar to be a study project, but later, they decided on a production run of 40 Bolide examples. The Bugatti Bolide is such a particular car that it was DuPont Registry’s November 2021 cover car. Each of these examples comes with a price tag of one million euros, or around USD 4.6 million.
10. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, $4.8 million
This car, Koenigsegg, developed a unique carbon fiber diamond weave to create its look. Because of how complex this process was, only two Trevitas were made, one of which was entrusted to Floyd Mayweather. It takes quite the car to justify that price, and the CCXR Trevita does the job.
9. Bugatti W16 Mistral, $5 million
The new Mistral will be the last of the W16-powered Bugatti road-going models, marking the end of an era. Because of this, the Bugatti W16 Mistral will undoubtedly be a collector’s car for decades. For those who got in early and purchased one of the 99 examples planned in the production run, the starting price was just over $5 million. It should be noted that all those 99 examples were already sold when the Mistral was revealed in August 2022.

8. Pagani Huayra Imola, $5.4 million
The Huayra Imola is a car that is entirely dedicated to speed. Pagani went to the length of developing a special paint to finish the car that saved 11 pounds of weight, to the end of achieving a dry weight of just 2,747 pounds. Combine that with 827 horsepower, and you end up with a car that is just about as formidable, unique, and extravagant as anything on the road.
7. Bugatti Divo, $5.9 million
As if Bugatti’s offerings weren’t serious enough, the Divo is just about as serious as any of their cars have ever gotten. While Bugatti’s are known for being cars that reach incredible speed in a straight line, the Bugatti Divo is meant to dominate. It has a lengthened, more sleek body, increased downforce, and 1.6 Gs’ of lateral acceleration; that’s precisely what it does. With Bugatti always at the forefront of performance, we had no clue that things could take a turn for the better.
6. Pagani Huayra Codalunga, $7.4 million
Just five examples of the new Pagani Huayra Codalunga will be created, so seeing this expensive hypercar out on the road will be a rare event. This new model was developed to pay tribute to the racing cars of the 1960s that were defined by the shapes created by the classic Italian coachbuilders. The most notable exterior feature of the Huayra Codalunga is the Long Tail, which houses a twin-turbo V12 engine that produces 840 horsepower.
5. Bugatti Centodieci, $9 million
The Bugatti Centodieci is an homage to a modern classic. The 200+ mph icon of the 90s, combined with the body of work Bugatti has today, can only make for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind, and inherently expensive car. There will only be 10 of these in the entire world, which is unfortunate because nostalgia isn’t the only reason the Centodieci is fantastic. It improves upon the Chiron, shedding nearly 45 pounds and adding downforce.

4. Rolls Royce Sweptail, $13 million
The Sweptail’s defining feature and namesake is the tapered rear end, appropriately evoking a yacht and the sense of pure pleasure and luxury that only a Rolls-Royce can offer. With a glass roof that extends from front to back and wood and leather on nearly every interior surface, the Sweptail is like, if not better than, a yacht; thus, it is priced accordingly.
3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta, $17.5 million
The Pagani Zonda is, by itself, a car we know to be epic and historic in the world of supercars. Its distinct appearance and outstanding performance have made it a classic and a legend. As if the Zonda wasn’t eye-catching enough, the HP Barchetta features rear wheels that are partially covered by a carbon fiber panel and a roofless body design, hence the Barchetta name, making it truly deserving of the title of being one of the most expensive cars in the world all time.
2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire, $18+ million
This breathtaking, exclusive one-off Bugatti was inspired by the legendary Type 57 Atlantic of Bugatti’s earlier history. Bugatti sought to recreate the sophistication and mysticism of the Atlantic, but most importantly, the legend of the perfect car. La Voiture Noire is unique to its core, with features that echo the Atlantic of old, like six tailpipes and a dorsal seam across the middle.

1. Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, $28 million
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is the most expensive car in the world. Coming from Rolls-Royce Coachbuild, it was inspired by everything nautical. It draws aesthetic inspiration from yachts of the 1920s and 1930s. The car shares its chassis and engine with the Rolls-Royce Phantom but has 1,813 parts, including five electronic control units in the rear deck. In the rear is an area that reveals a hosting suite that includes everything you need for an al fresco dining experience for a lovely afternoon lunch.
