Top 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World in 2016 - Alpha Male Nation
Cars were initially designed in order to accommodate a social need, but they have soon evolved in becoming more than that. The hint is by looking at how the situation is today. You often see more cars than people as almost every individual has at least one, while others end up having more than they can handle. We are talking about dozens or even more than a hundred. Also, it is more than obvious that there are more men than women drivers, although women have gained a lot of ground recently. But, whatever the situation may be, men remain the top car buyers and this means only one thing. Cars have evolved from being simple objects with a useful purpose and became AlphaMale toys, perfect for every taste. And tastes sure differ. Nowadays you can find any car, in any shape, color, size and power and all you need for that is money. With enough money there is basically no car you cannot buy.
But how much money do you need if you want to have a top quality, state of the art car? In other words, if you were looking to buy the most expensive car to date, what sum should you have in hand? If you are interested in finding out what are the most expensive cars in the world, you are in the right place. We are going to present you the most gorgeous cars in the world that have been sold for stunning prices and are yet to be exceeded from that point of view. First we are going to present you some classics that have scored big and are still unbeatable, then we will have a look at some of the more recent cars, which you can actually buy if you have a ton of cash. Make that 10 tons. Ready – set – go!
Ferrari 250 GTO – $38,000,000
This racing GT beauty was produced by Ferrari between 1962 and 1964 and the total number of pieces produced was 39.250 over the course of 2 years. It first debuted in the racing world at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1962 and it managed to end up on the second place, contrary to what everyone would have expected, including Phil Hill, the pilot, and Belgian Olivier Gendebien, his copilot. After few years of ruling the competitive scene, it quickly entered in the center of attention between 1970s and 1980s, when the classics became highly collectible. Ferrari 250 GTO was considered the most valuable car from Ferrari and the prices sky rocketed for the model over the years to come. A new model was costing $18,500 between 1962 and 1964, completely new and it reached its peak in 2013, when a GTO was sold for $38,000,000. This jewel is a true AlphaMale toy.
Mercedes-Benz W196 – $29,600,000
This is a Formula 1 piece produced by Mercedes-Benz for only a year, between 1954 and 1955, especially for the F1 season at the time. It performed almost flawlessly and won 9 out of 12 races it entered and it participated and won two world championships. There was only one model sold to a private person and it was the only one available for sale, as all the other pieces either belonging to the original manufacturer or being displayed at the institutional Museum. This only model ever sold was auctioned during the Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale on July 2013 for $29,600,000.
Ferrari 275 GT – $27,500,000
Another Ferrari, another peak. This front-engined Gran Turismo car was produced by Ferrari over the course of 4 years, between 1964 and 1968, but, despite the timeframe, only 970 were built in total. Probably this is why this AlphaMale vehicle was sold in California for the mind blowing amount of $27 million, which made it the third most expensive car in the world. Also, it is a fact that Ferrari classic models have not decreased in value, but they actually tend to increase. This means that we may register new peaks in the years to come.
OK, enough with the classics! It is time to check out the latest jewels you can actually purchase, provided that you have the cash necessary and the heart to spend it. Here are the most expensive cars in 2016 that anybody has access to. Well, that would be a handful of people, but you got the point.
Maybach Exelero – $8,000,000
One of a kind car – one of a kind price. This high performance unique sports car was built in 2004 by Maybach-Motorenbau GmbH and the model was a modern interpretation of the legendary streamlined sports car from the 1930s, a homage if you like. Price? $8,000,000, but the buyer is unknown.
Lamborghini Veneno – $4,500,000
Looks pretty good when considering the prices we have dropped from, right? This sweet baby is a limited production supercar with a design based on Lamborghini Aventador and was built in order to celebrate half of century of Lamborghini existence. Only 5 Lamborghini cars have been built so far and 2 of these belong to the manufacturer. The other 3 were already sold for $4,5000,000 and it is believed that they are currently the most expensive cars in the world today.
Lykan Hypersport – $3,400,000
This luxury car has been produced by W Motors, which is a United Arab Emirates company pretty recent on the stage. The company has only been founded in 2012, but it already succeeded in delivering one of the most expensive cars in the world. This beauty has been built by Syrian, French and Italian engineers and it is the first of its kind to be produced in the Middle East. It featured in the movie Furious 7 and in quite a few video games. There are only 7 to be built in total in the near future, with the first one being introduced by W Motors in 2013, during the Qatar Motor Show. It can reach from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and this is probably why the Abu Dhabi police force purchased one in 2015. Price? $3,400,000. Hurry and start saving money, because the next one is about to be released!
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – $2,700,000
This car is definitely a state of the art AlphaMale tool. It has been produced by Bugatti Automobile SAS and the first one was presented for sale in 2005. It was already a lightning fast car, reaching from 0 to 100 km/h in only 2.6 seconds, while being supported by the V16 engine, producing a staggering 1001 Horse Power. The Super Sport model had its engine power increased to 1200 Horse Power and the price rose accordingly. It has a maximum speed of 269.80 MPH and it can be bought for $2,700,000.
Aston Martin One-77 – $1,850,000
This is an awarder two-door coupe piece being produced by Aston Martin and it first made an appearance at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. It was first set for sell in 2011 and its name comes from the fact that there are only going to be a total of 77 models to be built. It received several international awards, including the Concorso d’Eleganza Design award for Concept Cars and Prototypes, the “Best Design” award of Auto Express UK motoring magazine, and many others along the way. The V12 engine develops 750 HP, it reaches 220.007 MPH and it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, given or taken. You can purchase this beautiful AlphaMale piece for only $1,850,000.
Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster – $1,850,000
AlphaMale sports toy manufactured by the Italian Pagani, it was first produced in 1999 and the production ended two years later, culminating with the production of 3 special edition vehicles: Pagani Zonda 760RS, Pagani Zonda 760LH and Pagani Zonda 764 Passione. In 2014 another special edition car has been produced, called Pagani Zonda 760RSJX, the last one ever to be made. The Zonda Cinque Roadster had its design derived from the Coupe and there are only 5 to have ever been built. The price is $1,850,000.
Zenvo ST 1 – $1,225,000
Finally, the last one on our AlphaMale jewel cars is Zenvo, a vehicle produced by the Danish company Zenvo and only a handful of people worked in building it. Zenvo Automotive, the manufacturer, was founded in 2004 and the first prototype for Zenvo ST 1 was completed in 2008. Only a limited number of 15 cars were ever built and sold and this gorgeous AlphaMale car certainly worth it. It reaches up to 233 MPH and it goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.0 seconds. The price for this limited edition car is $1,225,000, but, unfortunately, all the models have been already sold.
If you are looking for an AlphaMale vehicle, then this is certainly the perfect place to start. It seems like our passion for cars have taken us to some of the most expensive models in the world and it seems like what is interesting is yet to come. I guess we will have to wait and see.
