Starrys Obazei/November 4, 2022.
The most expensive cars in the world are no longer Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Bentley, Mercedes Benz, BMW, and the traditional super sedans. A lot has changed in the automotive world, and hyper-cars have taken the lead as far as expensive cars are concerned.
These new supercars have dominated the expensive car segment from the beginning to the end. Their class of customers includes the young superstars who have arrived either in the sporting or show business worlds. This class of wealthy young people, especially the males, are always eager to show off that money is for spending and enjoyment.
Some of these machines have a price tag of $15 million, and you might be asking how many passengers they can take at once. They are just two-seaters but have an unimaginable presence anywhere they go. They are just for class, to show off, and for superstars who want to travel at rocket speed.
There are even prices that you can buy jets, but the irony is that they can’t fly. It is a known fact that not many automakers have registered their names in this segment, which accounts for less than one percent of the entire automobile market in the world.
Bugatti has taken the dominance in the segment with some enticing models such as the $13.4m, Bugatti La Voiture Noire, $4.7 million; Bugatti Bolide, $5 million; Bugatti W16 Mistral, $8 million; Bugatti Centodieci are some of Bugatti’s footprint in the exclusive automobile segment.

They include the $2.7 million Mercedes-AMG Project One, $3.0 million Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster, $3 million Koenigsegg Jesko, $3 million Aston Martins, Valkyrie, $5.4 million Pagani Huayra Imola, and $6.4 million Spyros Panopoulos Automotive Chaos.
