Hi everyone. Welcome back to my vehicle blog. The last time I was dreaming about owning a Maserati. But when it comes down to the following cars, in comparison to their prices, a Maserati is just pocket money. This time I will deal with the top five most expensive cars in the world. Are you exited about which one is the winner? Well, here we go!
For the 50th birthday it may be a bit more expensive. With the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, the Italian sports car manufacturer made itself a 3.95 million Euro gift in 2013. Well if that is too much for your next birthday present, how about a nice model car of it. You can get really cheap ones off http://www.gebraucht-kaufen.at/modellauto-lamborghini.
Lamborghini only built nine cars of it. In addition to the already exclusive technology by Aventador, the main reason for the price was the lavish use of lightweight carbon. The carbon fibres were baked into an extreme stealth fighter shape, which pushes the aggressive design style of the brand to the extreme. There also was a powerful performance upgrade for the twelve-cylinder, which then brought it to 751 HP and a top speed of about 360 km/h.
A Diamond on Wheels
The Swedish car manufacturer calls it a “Diamond on Wheels". The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. Thanks to its carbon construction and 1.108 HP, the CCXR takes it in just 2.9 seconds to 100 km/h.
His top speed is about 410 km/h. However, only two pieces were built. One of them was sold in August 2015 to the US boxer Floyd Mayweather for 4.8 million dollars.
Oh, by the way, if you are looking for a new car and you don't have Mr. Mayweather's budget at your disposal, there are great offers available on http://www.gebraucht-kaufen.at/gebrauchte-autos. They also do have great and cheap deals for used and second hand cars as well.
Not only on sports cars you can spent a lot of money. The third place goes to a super-exquisite single model: the Maybach Exelero. It is worth about 8 million dollars. Well, in comparison to that, a Hennessey Venom GT is a real bargain!
The Exelero, however, runs a little out of competition as it was presented in 2005 as a show car of the German tire manufacturer Fulda (http://www.fulda.com/). Based on the Maybach 57, students have created a road-friendly coupé that meets all luxury requirements. Under the noble hood is a V12 twin engine with 700 HP. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds.
The Second place goes to...
...Ferrari! It is the Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta. The coupé from 1962 is pretty close to the number one. In 2014 it was auctioned in the US for 38.12 million dollars, which, at that time, were about 28.5 million Euro. At the current conversion rate, however, it would be a good 34 million Euro. And this would actually more then our current winner.
But the Ferrari 250 GTO (Gran Turismo Omologata) is a very tragic model. In 1962 it was involved in a bad car accident. The former driver Henri Oreiller was fatally injured. Afterwards the seriously damaged car was restored by Ferrari itself.
And the Winner is...
Here is our undisputed number one. The Ferrari 355 S Spider Scaglietti! According to the Italian newspaper “Sport” it was sold last year to Lionel Messi for 32.1 million Euro. It was the biggest Euro-amount ever achieved at an European auction. Therefore is the most expensive car in the world.
This Ferrari is indeed a very special car. It was built in 1957. Amongst others, it started at Le Mans, at the Mille Miglia and at various Grand Prix races. Behind the wheel were famous drivers like Stirling Moss, Luigi Musso or Wolfgang von Trips.
Originally equipped with a 365 HP, 3.8-litre V12-Tipo-140, over time the displacement was increased up to 4.1 litres. After his active time, this amazing car found it's way to Pierre Bardinon's collection and finally was sold last year.
Wow, what an amount of money! 32.1 million Euro. I'm actually wondering about the costs for the spare parts! But if you do own an ordinary car, you should check out Gebraucht-Kaufen.at. They have cheap spare parts for every brand available. You can get them new or even used for sale.
