Are you a car-freak? Or perhaps you’re in the market for a new car? It always pays to do a little research before purchasing a specialist vehicle. Owning a car is a very important part of life, so this decision comes with great responsibility.

Sometimes it is worth spending more money to get a model with proven longevity, rather than cars which come at a cheap price but would give you a truck-load of problems down the line.

These cars are not just beautiful, but also rare, they are part of limited production runs, making them available only to an exclusive elite.

Few people have even seen these cars physically, much less had the chance to take one out on the road.

Here it is, our list of the most luxurious cars in the world:

1- SWEPTAIL BY ROLLS ROYCE- $13 Million

The Rolls-Royce Sweptail tops the list, a one-off, large luxury car made in the United Kingdom, and billed as the most expensive car in the world.

This car is fully hand-built and inspired by coach designs of the 1920s and 1930s. The Sweptail was a one-off bespoke commission back in 2013, at the request of a superyacht and aircraft specialist, who had a unique idea in mind.

Another interesting point to note is that the interior of the car is hand-crafted with wood and leather, with hidden space designed to hold laptops behind each door.

2-KOENIGSEGG ONE- $2 Million

This is another expensive sports car. It is equipped with 5.0 liter V8 twin-turbo engines that enable the car to generate 940 horsepower at 6900 rpm. This car operates on green technology, which enables it to use E85 bio-fuel, race fuel or normal gasoline.

3-LAMBORGHINI SESTO ELEMENTO - $2.2 Million

The Sesto Elemento is a very unique car. It has two doors, two seats, and is a V10 high-performance, lightweight, limited edition supercar, produced by the Italian automaker, Lamborghini.

It has a special engine hood design to keep the engine cool. Air is released through 10 distinctive hexagonal holes in the engine cover, while two intakes funnel cool air into the mid-mounted engine compartment.

4-FERRARI LA FERRARI- $1.4 Million

We’ve all heard the name Ferrari, ubiquitous across pop culture. The La Ferrari is the first mid-hybrid from Ferrari. It also has the highest power output of any Ferrari whilst decreasing fuel consumption as much as 40%.

The interior of the car is nicely designed, in particular, the cockpit, which stands out thanks to the sportiness of the shapes, which convey the high performance of the car.

5-ZENVO ST1- $1.2 Million

There are only 15 of the Zenvo ST1 available in the world.  The Zenvo ST1 is a high-performance sports car.

It comes equipped with keyless entry, satellite navigation, telescopic steering wheel adjustment, and electrically adjustable, leather racing seats.

The carbon fiber body was made in Germany, whilst many components such as the ABS brakes, gas tanks, airbags, and traction control come from America or other German made cars.

The car is able to reach 100km/h within a short 3 seconds, accelerate to 200km/h in 8.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 375 km/h.  This really is a fast car.

 6-  ROLLS-ROYCE SERENITY PHANTOM- $1.1 Million

This car was first launched in Geneva, Switzerland. The interior is inspired by Japanese hand-woven silk fabrics.

If you remember “Diced Pineapples,”  this car is very similar to the Maybach concept that stood up as one of the most luxurious sedan cars.

This car is very cool to drive in. It symbolizes tranquility and is a temple to contemplation. Its interior features a delicate hand-painted blossom motif, echoing the blossom trees from the Far East.

This car wasn’t manufactured for speed or power; it was designed with maximal comfort and peace in mind.

7- LA FERRARI FXX K-$2.7 Million

Once again, a Ferrari product holds a spot on the list. There are only forty units of this car in existence globally.

The Ferrari FXX K is able to produce 1036 horsepower and over 900 Nm of torque. It is powered by the V12 ice and 190 PS electric motors

This car has four driving modes depending on the journey. ‘Short run’ is suitable for maximum performance over a short distance; ‘long run’ for long distance driving; ‘fast charge’ for faster recharging of the battery; and ‘manual boost’ to unleash all the power of the engine and batteries for maximum torque, cornering and speed.

8- ASTON MARTIN VALKYRIE-$3.2 Million

This supercar was built under Andy Palmer, the new President of Aston Martin who has brought solvency and relevance to the brand with his awesome cars.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is a renovation of the old Aston Martin Red Bull, AM.RB 001. There are only 150 units of this model available.

9- MERCEDEZ- BENZ MAYBACH EXELERO-$8Million

This is the second most expensive car from Mercedes Benz. It is a high-performance sports car with four seats and a V12 twin turbo engine that is able to produce 700 horsepower.

The Exelero was created as a modern interpretation of the brand’s streamlined sports car from the 1930s. The car has been featured in one of Jay-Z’s music videos for the song, “Otis.”

10-Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4- $1.9 Million

The Lamborghini Centenario is an extremely precious piece in Lamborghini’s one-off range. It is the epitome of the creative innovation and engineering skills that the brand is famous for.

The supercar is equipped with a high-performance 770 CV aspirated V12 engine that allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds.

Due to its exclusivity, design and innovative technology opportunities, the Lamborghini Centenario is one of the most sought-after cars in the world.

Now that you have browsed our pick of the most luxurious cars in the world, how many of these do you own?

Of course, these are supercars bearing unreasonable price tags, which all land above the million-dollar mark. But as the old saying goes, “nothing good comes easy,” and that definitely applies to these beauties.
