Another car that made it on our list of world’s most expensive cars is Ferrari F60 America, a derivative of the F12 which was built to celebrate 60 years of Ferrari in North America. Alongside its sleek design is an inbuilt power that comes from a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine that makes creating a 730 horsepower (544 kilowatts) seem like easy work.

With this power, the F60 makes 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.1 seconds. However, only ten of its kind was produced and has all been sold out.

18. Mercedes-AMG One ($2.5 Million)

Mercedes-AMG One is a hybrid hypercar that anyone would love to own. The fine car is a two-seater built with the latest technology. Top on the list of its features is a 1.6-liter electrically turbocharged V6 engine which gives a power boost to its front and rear wheels.

It does not end there, Huayra BC has an 800 horsepower (596 KW), and a higher power to weight ratio due to a new material called carbon Triax, which is lighter and stronger than the normal carbon fiber.

16. Aston Martin Valkyrie ($2.6 Million)

Aston Martin’s first hypercar, Valkyrie also makes the list as an expensive automobile. With a striking aerodynamic exterior and advanced mid-mounted powertrain,  the masterpiece which is a combined creation of Aston Martin with Red Bull Racing currently goes for a whopping sum of $ 2.6 million.

Despite being unveiled at the Yas Marina Circuit in late 2014, the LaFerrari FXX K has remained with its manufactures since then, until it is certified to run on the road.

Although Sergio still uses the same 4.5-liter V8 engine as the 458, it is faster and has better handling because of the lightweight carbon bodywork employed to make this baby sleek. Due to the reduced weight and the unique aerodynamic design, the Sergio sends a whopping 562hp to the rear wheels, accelerating to 62 mph (100 km/h) from rest in just 3.4 seconds!

Another Lamborghini model on our list, the Lamborghini Sian was unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. This is the company’s first production of a hybrid model which is a follow up on the Lamborghini Aventador series.

It is an electric motor with a 48-volt unit fitted between the engine and the transmission powered by a supercapacitor instead of the commonly used lithium-ion battery pack. Supercapacitors were chosen due to their ability to store three times the power of a conventional lithium-ion battery of the same capacity.

The name Sián which means “flash of lightning” perfectly fits this hybrid design. The model provides an intense power burst for a short amount of time contributing a trivial 34 hp to the Sian’s powerful 807hp output. The remaining 774 hp delivered to the four wheels is obtained from the naturally-aspirated V12 engine. With this power, the Sian hits a speed of 60 mph from rest in 2.8 seconds.

With a 6.5-liter V12 engine, the Veneno’s shaft spins up to 8,400 RPM to deliver 740hp, getting the automobile to a quick 60 mph from rest in 2.9 seconds; isn’t that amazing?

Lamborghini built just five samples of the Veneno model but only three were customized specially for customers. The Veneno was built to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary.

6. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ($4.8 Million)
