They say money can’t buy happiness bu it can buy the most expensive cars in the world i.e swag. This article is sole for the lovers of cars and speed to be specific.
Below is the list of the most expensive cars in the world for 2015/2016.
Starting from the last is

Ferrari is one of a kind brand and just to celebrate its 60th year in North America, the Italian brand built 10 different examples of this stunning monster. Based on the F12 Berlinetta, the F60 in undeniably patriotic as it wears a Star and stripes colour scheme, American flag seat inserts, and classic racing livery all around. Better yet, you can experience the glory with the top down, as the F60 equips a lightweight fabric top that can be operated at speeds up to 75 mph.
The supercars is mechanically identical to the F12, but the Berlinetta isn’t exactly a Fiat Panda to begin with. Its 6.2 liter V12 chums out 740 glorious hp, enough to propel the car to 60 mph in only 3.1 seconds, The ultra-rare flag-waver harkens back to Ferrari’s bespoke past, as the company built several region-specific sports cars in the 1950s and 1960s.

This list would be incomplete if this version of the almighty Bugatti Veyron is exempted. We’re shining our torchlight (lols) on the Mansory Vivere edition here, not only because its is the FASTEST CAR IN THE WORLD, it is also one of the most expensive cars in the world.
Augmented by the German witch doctors, Mansory – the 1,200 hp Veyron starts out as a Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster, only to be adorned with a gorgeous carbon fibre body, a new spoiler package, upgraded LED lights, a rebuffed cabin, and a redesigned front grill. Further classifying the Veyron as a work of art, maps of historic race events like the Targa Florio are laser etched into the exterior and interior. Oh, and it can do 254 mph.
(3.) W Motors Lykan Hypersport also ($3.4M) i.e N1,360,000,000.00Photo Credit: Google
Movie lover, if you can recall from the Fast and Furious 7, three Lykan Hypersport was crashed by the Lebanese through the skyscrapers in Dubai. In a franchise filled with high-end exotics and one-off custom creations, the fact that the Hypersport got so much focus is a statement to its magnetism.
Let’s begin with the styling which includes jewel-encrusted headlights, scissor doors, and an interior ripped straight from science fiction. it looks like a pissed off armoured car from the future, and its performance is right on par with its image. The Hypersport boasts a 3.7 liter, twin-turbo flat six that yields 770 hp and 708 lb-ft.
It’s not just Dominic Toretto who benefits from this level of performance though, as the Abu Dhabi police force has drafted the Hypersport into patrol duty. Although it’s mainly used for marketing and public relations purposes, the high-flying stunner assures that the authorities can keep up with any baddie that tries to get cute on the freeway. Pedal to the floor, 0 to 62 mph is accomplished in just 2.8 seconds, and top speed is a downright scary 240 mph.
(2.) Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5M) i.e N1,800,000,000.00Photo: Google
Poison is the name Lamborghini chose for the modified Aventador you are looking at. It was built to celebrate the automaker’s 50th birthday. I can’t speak about the motivation of the company but the name befits the vehicle that looks so positively deadly and undeniably venomous.
The car is absolutely stunning from every angle, and o this day, I’m not convinced it isn’t an alien spacecraft surveying our planet for the eventual takeover and did I hear you say too much of movies?. Anyways, It just doesn’t seem real. The only thing more remarkable than the is the price.
The Veneno is fast and that shouldn’t e a surprise. Its 6.5 liter V12 spins all the way up to 8,400 rpm to deliver 740 hp and 507 lb-ft, surging the car to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds.

Koenigsegg makes its sophomore appearance on our list with the CCXR Trevita and it does so as the most expensive street-legal production car in the world. Why so much coin? With no exaggeration, the car is literally coated in diamonds and diamonds aren’t cheap.
For the trevita, the Swedish manufacturer developed a new exterior finished called the Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave, which involves coating carbon fibres with a diamond dust-impregnated resin. We can’t even fathom how much the touch-up paint costs.
Underneath the lustrous finish lies a 4.8 liter, dual-supercharged V8 with a total output of 1,004 hp and 797 lb-ft, which means it should have little to no trouble overtaking semis on the freeway. The car’s specifications – in both performance and price are nearly comical at this point, and just three were ever made.
