Forbe’s Top 10 List of the Most Expensive Cars in the World

Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe

The most “affordable” car in the top 10 list of the most expensive cars in the world published by Forbes is the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe – with a price tag of $447,000. Equipped with the same massive V12 453 hp engine like the standard version, the open top configuration is a real beauty to see and to drive.

Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce

At number 9 we find the beautiful now defunct Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce, priced at $455,400. Equipped with a V12 6.5-liter power unit that is capable of outputting 670 hp, it is the most powerful Lamborghini produced; at least until the 700-4 Aventador is launched. The SV is capable of reaching 60 mph in less than 3.2 seconds. Fitted with the 6-speed manual gearbox, the SV is a beast.

Ferrari SA Aperta

Holding the number 8 spot is the soon-to-be-released Ferrari SA Aperta, with an estimated price of $520,000. Based on the 599 GTO, the car will feature a removable soft-top and will be fitted with a powerful V12 670 hp engine which allows the car to reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. The car will go into a limited production of only 80 units.

LeBlanc Mirabeau

The number 7 spot goes to LeBlanc Mirabeau, with a hefty price of $728,000. A Swiss race car that can be driven on the streets, what else could you want more? The heart of the car is a supercharged V8 engine that outputs 700 hp and 850 Nm of torque.

SSC Ultimate Aero

At number 6 we find the so-called Bugatti Veyron-killer, the SSC Ultimate Aero – priced at $750,000. With the help of the impressive V8 1,287 hp engine, the Aero has a top speed of 273 mph (439 km/h). Many of the body parts are made out of carbon and also the interior has received carbon insertions.

Ferrari Millechili Concept

At number 5, Forbes placed the Ferrari F70, with an estimated price of $870,000. We don’t know if it will be indeed called F70, but it will certainly be the successor of the Enzo and worthy of the name.

Pagani Zonda C9

The Pagani Zonda C9 holds the number 4 spot with an estimated price tag of $1.3 million. The car will most likely feature a 700 hp power unit developed by AMG. The car will go into a limited production of only 40 units, all of them featuring a high-tech carbon-titanium chassis as well as 4,000 new parts in comparison with the outgoing Zonda model. In addition, the car will be fitted with specially developed tires made by Pirelli.

Maybach Landaulet

The top 3 starts with the Maybach Landaulet, priced at $1.405 million. The car was first seen at the Detroit Motor Show in 2008 and is based on the 62S, but with an incredible soft top, a premiere for a car in this class. The car will be equipped with a V12 twin turbo engine and will offer all the comfort you could ask for in a car, even more than that.

Koenigsegg Agera

At number 2 we find the sexy Koenigsegg Agera, with a price tag of $1.5 million (estimated). Fitted with a 910 hp engine and a body made out of aluminum and carbon fiber parts, the Agera will do the 0-60 mph sprint in about 3 seconds. The people that made it say that it offers the most generous luggage space in its class, although not relevant for a car like this one.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The number 1 position was of course grabbed by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport priced at $2.6 million. The car is capable of doing a top speed of 268 mph (431 km/h), according to Guiness World of Records, but the cars that are shipped to customers are limited to 258 mph (415 km/h). With a 1,200 hp engine, it is the ultimate driving machine.

My personal favorite from this list is the Koenigsegg Agera thanks to its sexy looks which makes it even more beautiful than the LP670-4 SuperVeloce from Lamborghini, at least in my humble opinion. The Phantom Coupe is my least favorite, although it is the most affordable car from this top.
