Worlds 5 Most Expensive Cars
The world’s 5 most expensive cars truly are dream rides. Men want to own them and women desire to be with a man who owns one. These cars are built for manly men who want to quench their thirst for speed.
- The Bugatti Veyron, $1.7 million. An interesting fact: this is the most expensive car in the world, but not the fastest car on our list, even if it sprints from zero to 60 in 2.6 seconds. This vehicle holds a sixteen-cylinder engine, a dual clutch direct gear shift computer controlled transmission, ten radiators for its cooling system, a heat exchange for the air to liquid coolers… are you getting all of this? The car tops out at 253 miles per hour. The manufacturer brags that the Veyron carries 1,001 horsepower. Zowie!
- The Lamborghini Reventon, $1.6 million. Going from zero to 60 in 3.3 seconds, this is the most expensive Lamborghini model made. It has a large 6.5 liter V12 engine, a carbon fiber exterior and an interior simulated to look like an aircraft cockpit designed with a three screen LCD readout. Can you handle 650 horsepower with top speeds of 210 miles per hour? Bad news, only twenty Reventons have been made, so if you see one on the road, take a quick photo on your cell because that’s probably the last time you’ll see one up close and personal.
- The Ferrari Enzo, $1 million. Named after its founder, this car was constructed with Formula 1 race car technology, such as a carbon fiber body, a sequential shift transmission and carbon-ceramic brakes. It’s a Formula 1 hidden in a Ferrari’ chassis. It goes from zero to 60 in 3.4 seconds, and tops out at 217 miles per hour. Only 399 have been produced, so you just might have a shot at owning one, if you have a cool million or more in your pocket, considering this is a limited edition racing beauty.
- The McLaren F1, $970 thousand. This expensive car goes from zero to 60 in 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of 240 miles per hour and 627 horsepower. This expensive speed monster holds a six-liter quad-cam 48 valve V12 engine with a carbon fiber monocoque chassis; that means the chassis and body are combined as a single unit. This is the only car with the driver's seat directly in the middle of the car, with no room for a side passenger. The F1 is no longer in production.
- The Maserati MC12, $800 thousand. This car goes from zero to 60 in 3.8 seconds, tops out at 205 miles per hour and has a 623 horsepower engine. This baby holds a six-liter V12 engine with four camshafts, dry-sump lubrication and titanium connecting rods. It also has a monocoque chassis, and only fifty units were produced. Don’t look to see one on the road anytime soon.
Maybe you can’t afford the world’s 5 most expensive cars, but keep your eye on the American manufactured Aero and start saving, or plan to win the lotto. It could happen, but if it doesn’t then rent one of these exotic cars for your birthday and give yourself a dose of super charged speed fit for a manly man.
