These super-rare limited-run models are some of the fastest status symbols on Earth
The top 10 most expensive sports cars in the world are famous for many reasons. They symbolize in price and pop culture the highest demand for automobiles in the world. Most commonly, this demand is built on a mix of rarity, prestige, and sheer performance.
The best sports cars win hearts and open wallets like nothing else in the world, and will always have a special place on our roads. Their mix of speed and style is unmatched in any other vehicle class in existence. What would normally be a liability for a product – that they are not inherently practical – is a key aspect of what makes a great sports car truly special.
Sports cars are not designed for a meandering trip through peak hour traffic to the office and doing an IKEA run in one of these vehicles is akin to a crime for purists – you’re never going to fit a darn chest of draws in a proper sports car! No, no – sports cars are designed to perform; certainly not to be queueing at the gas station while you ponder the fuel economy of your car versus that boxy looking smart car.
Sports cars are here to celebrate the very edge of automotive innovation. The speed, the pace, and the pure thrill of driving are at heart why the 10 most expensive sports cars in the world are so highly prized. Let’s looks now at these 10, what each offers that is outstanding, and their costs.
1. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – $4.8 million
The CCXR Trevita represents a peak in performance and price in the sports car market. With a 4.7L V8 engine that delivers a top speed of 254 mph, this car will be desired by anyone who drives it – or sees it driving by. Made of carbon fiber kevlar and aluminum honeycomb, this mid-engined sports car has a flat underside with rear venturi tunnels. With the addition of an optional spoiler on the back, you can boost downforce even more – just in case 254 mph doesn’t seem to have enough oomph for you.
