Price: $30+ Million
Units Produced: 1

Following the beautiful Boat Tail in 2022, Rolls-Royce unveiled another exorbitantly priced custom car named the La Rose Noire Droptail. Premiering at Monterey Car Week, the Droptail, the first of four exclusive commissions, showcased a stunning exterior hue named True Love.

While Rolls-Royce typically remains tight-lipped about the cost, speculations place the price tag at around $30 million, with some sources hinting it could soar up to $35 million, making it among the most expensive automobiles globally.

2. Rolls Royce Boatail

Price: $28 Million
Units Produced: 3

The Rolls-Royce Boatail, a bespoke grand tourer, handcrafted for a select trio of patrons, ranks among the elite in automotive luxury, marking the second installment from Rolls Royce’s Coachbuild initiative. Inspired by the elegance of 1920s and 1930s maritime vessels. Its design pays homage to the sleek lines of J-class yachts, drawing from the meticulously restored 1932 Rolls-Royce Boat Tail from the owners’ personal collection.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Boatail’s deck showcases open-pore Caleidolegno veneer and soft blue lacquer. Evoking the graceful curves of wooden hulls, meticulously matched and symmetrical. Its unique butterfly unfolding deck reveals a bespoke hosting suite complete with parasol and rotating cocktail tables, accompanied by a full set of Christofle tableware and a double refrigerator for the owner’s preferred champagne.

Exuding opulence, the Boatail features two dual-faced timepieces, born from a collaborative effort spanning three years between Rolls-Royce and Bovet 1822. These timepieces, adorned with miniature sculptures of the car on their dials, can be worn or seamlessly integrated into the car’s fascia as elegant car clocks. Further elevating its luxury are details such as a Montblanc pen housed in a bespoke case within the glove compartment and intricate guilloché work adorning the instrument panel dials.

3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta

Price: $17.5 Million
Units Produced: 3

The HP Barchetta exemplifies more than mere automotive prowess. It represents a fusion of artistry and engineering principles central to Pagani’s ethos. Custom-crafted for Horacio Pagani himself, this most expensive convertible blends contemporary technology with meticulous handiwork. Signaling the culmination of an 18-year Zonda era.

Boasting a 12-cylinder AMG engine generating 760hp and emitting a distinctive roar. These expensive sports cars epitomize exclusivity within Pagani’s Uno-di-Uno division, limited to a production run of three, one reserved for Pagani, while the others found discerning owners (unfortunately, one met with an accident).

Noteworthy for holding the title of the world’s priciest automobile until the advent of the Rolls Royce Boattail. Its 6-speed manual transmission ensures an engaging and thrilling driving experience, solidifying its status as a prized addition to any collector’s trove.

4. Bugatti La Voiture Noire

Bugatti La Voiture Noire (Most Expensive Cars In The World)

Price: $18.9 Million
Units Produced: 1

While it may be hard to count how many Bugattis are in the world, we cannot say the same for the La Voiture Noire. Priced at $13.4 million, the one-off supercar is the priciest new Bugatti ever crafted. With good reason too. A contemporary take on Jean Bugatti’s personal Type 57 SC Atlantic, it shares the quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine of the Chiron, boasting 1,479 horsepower.

Adorned with six exhaust tips, distinctive new wheels, a menacing bespoke front end, and a massive illuminated emblem at the back showcasing the brand name. Naturally, this singular Bugatti has already found its buyer.

Being the rarest car of modern times is the reason why this Bugatti is so expensive.

5. Rolls Royce Sweptail

Rolls Royce Sweptail

Price: $13 Million
Units Produced: 1

The British luxury marque commands two out of the top three positions here, featuring the remarkable Sweptail from 2017 at number three. Valued at a staggering $13.0 million, it is one of the most exclusive cars in the world. It held the title of the priciest new car upon its release, offering 453 horsepower and an awe inspiring presence.

6. Bugatti Chiron Profilée

Bugatti Chiron Profilée

Price: $10.86 Million
Units Produced: 1

Although it appears similar to a standard Chiron (the fastest car in the world), the Profilée is truly unique. Originally crafted by Bugatti as a prototype for a limited series of Profilée editions, this particular Chiron stands alone. Equipped with the familiar 1,476 horsepower quad turbocharged W16 engine found in all Chiron models. The Profilée features distinctive bodywork and a bespoke spoiler, setting it apart from its counterparts.

7. Bugatti Centodieci

Bugatti Centodieci (Most Expensive Cars In The World)

Price: $9 Million
Units Produced: 10

The Centodieci pays tribute to the revered Bugatti EB 110 while commemorating the marque’s 110th anniversary. Unveiled in 2019 at The Quail, it sheds 20 kg and gains potency compared to the Chiron. Limited to just ten units, each fetching a staggering $9 million, it stakes its claim among the most expensive cars in the world. Inspired by the EB110, its design flaunts five diamond shaped air intakes and a wedge shaped silhouette, with a distinctive horseshoe radiator grille below the headlights.

At the rear, this most expensive supercar sports eight taillights, quad exhausts, a sizable diffuser, and a fixed rear wing, exuding sheer aggressiveness. Notably, the W16 engine sits beneath a glass panel reminiscent of the EB110, adding to its authenticity. Astonishingly, resale prices for the Centodieci have soared $4-5 million above their original sticker price.

8. Maybach Exelero

Maybach Exelero

Price: $8 Million
Units Produced: 1

The Exelero’s name might invite teasing, but it was actually named after a set of new tires by a Goodyear subsidiary. Selling for a whopping $8 million (very close to the most expensive Lambroghini Veneno Roadster) in the 2000s. This one-off Maybach may seem overpriced for what is essentially a modified Maybach 57 limousine. Yet, looking back, the Exelero possesses a certain charm, resembling something Bruce Wayne might cruise around Gotham in on Batman: The Animated Series.

The Excelero along with the Chiron Super Sport is also one of the fastest luxury cars in the world.

9. Pagani Huayra Codalunga

Pagani Huayra Codalunga (Most Expensive Cars In The World)

Price: $7.4 Million
Units Produced: 5

Pagani seems to have a pattern of extending their model lineups indefinitely. With each new “final edition,” prices soar. In 2022, they introduced the Codalunga, supposedly the last iteration of the Huayra, drawing inspiration from the Porsche 917. Despite cosmetic tweaks, the $7.4 million price tag only gets you the same turbocharged V12 as the Huayra, offering no performance boost beyond its 840 hp.
