According to a recent article published by The Telegraph, the average price of a new car in the UK stands at £12,000. While that is a considerable sum by most standards, the truth is that when it comes to car prices, the sky is the limit. The following cars are the most expensive cars know to have been ever built.
1 – Bugatti Veyron Super Sports
What would you buy with £1 million? How about a Bugatti Veyron? Bugatti has been in the automobile market since 1909, although nowadays Bugatti exclusively manufactures luxury sports cars.
Bugatti Veyron cars first appeared in the market in 2005, and they are known for their costly price tag. The lowest priced Bugatti Veyron costs £1 million, while the cost of replacing a simple transmission exceeds £77,000.
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sports is the fastest car and the most expensive car in the market, as it reaches speeds of 269 mph and is priced at £1.62 million.
2 – Aston Martin One 77
Aston Martin often tops the lists of the most sought-after luxury cars. This two-door coupé was first released in 2008 with an attached price tag of £1.2 million. As its name suggests, only 77 models will be ever built, and Aston Martin affirms that no two One 77s will be alike, as they can be customised according to the owner’s preferences.
Some distinguishing features include an acceleration rate of 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, carbon ceramic brakes, and maximum speeds of 200 mph.
3 – Koenigsegg Agera 1
Koenigsegg was founded with the sole intention of producing a top-class luxury that could be ranked among the world’s best. The Koenigsegg Agera 1 certainly lives up to those expectations, as it has received several awards that highlight its intelligent design and awesome performance.
The Agera 1 is priced at £1 million and it can reach 124 mph in 8.9 seconds. This model is made of carbon fibre and aluminum, which makes it a lightweight car that is nevertheless powerful and compact.
4 – Zenvo ST1
Zenvo cars have only been in the market for 8 years, but they have already managed to top the lists of high performance cars. Aesthetically speaking, the ST1 bears a resemblance to racing cars. In terms of performance, this model cannot be faulted, as speed, aerodynamism, and reliability are all there. The ST1 is part of a limited collection of 15 cars.
Prices start at £790,000.
5 – SSC Ultimate Aero
This car was once the world’s fastest street car, reaching speeds of 256 mph. Some features worth highlighting include a 6-speed transmission and a carbon fibre engine airflow system.
The Ultimate Aero has a price tag of £500,000.
6 – Ferrari SA Aperta
We could not end this list without including a Ferrari. The SA Aperta was widely praised at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, where it was launched. This car gives you 62 mph in 3.5 seconds thanks to one of the most powerful engines ever manufactured by Ferrari.
The Aperta is priced at approximately £350,000, although it is already too late to get your hands on one of the 80 cars manufactured, since they have all been sold.
