The Top 5 Most Expensive Cars On The PlanetDecember 22, 2014 - 2:30 am |
Need a new ride? Is that Honda Civic just not cutting it for you anymore? Take a look at our list of the most expensive cars on the planet. That’s not the smell of burning rubber. That’s envy.
Price: $2.4 million
If you were Bill Gates, you could have a garage with ten of these bad boys (actually, quite a few more than that...). They say you get what you pay for, and this car is the fastest street legal vehicle, capable of hitting a face-melting 267 miles per hour. Is $2.4 million a little too rich for your blood? If that's the case, don't worry—you can buy the “basic” version for a paltry $1.7 million.
Aston Martin One-77
Price: $1.85 million
This is the Aston Martin that James Bond wished he had. With a top speed of 220 miles per hour and 750 horsepower, you had better have a license to drive this thing. A license to kill, that is. You'd better try to buy one quickly though, since only 77 were produced, hence the name.
Pagani Zonda Clinque Roadster
Price: $1.85 million
The Zonda is another car just shy of a cool $2 million, with a look that had to have been inspired by those little RC cars you cruised around as a kid (and your dad subsequently ran over in his real car). This powerhouse can go from zero to sixty in 3.4 seconds—that's longer than it takes most people to finish picking their noses. With a top speed of 217 miles per hour, your nose might get blown off.
Price: $1.6 million
Finally, the prices are starting to go down. Set at an affordable $1.6 millos, the Reventon is the defacto wet dream for Lamborghini fans. And it's a real bargan compared to the Zonda above, considering that the Reventon can reach 60 miles per hour in a tenth of a second less at 3.3 seconds.
Just for you cheapos in the audience, here's a car that costs less than $1 million. Nearly 20 years ago in the early 1990s, this was the fastest car that money could buy—and it's still freaking insane. The McLaren F1 can reach 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds, faster than both the Zonda and the Reventon.
