In the world of cars, there are vehicles that we deem affordable, namely the vehicles the average person can comfortably afford. Then, there are higher-end vehicles that cost more than the average person makes in a year. But above that, we see car prices that are so outrageous that one vehicle costs what most people make in their entire life combined. In fact, these car payments are so absurd most people couldn’t even imagine owning the vehicles, and no matter what you drive, chances are these supercars and hypercars will make you feel pretty humble.
The most expensive car, ever
The most expensive car in the world isn’t one that’s brand new. In fact, according to Luxe, it’s a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO. While we expect Ferraris to be expensive, the selling price on this one might seem a little absurd because one sold in pristine condition sold for an astonishing $70 million. What makes this car so special? Well, the same thing that makes all of these cars highly-priced: rarity.
More modern expenses
If classic, collector Ferraris aren’t for you, perhaps the $18.7 million Bugatti La Voiture Noire is more your taste. It’s one of the most expensive cars in the world as it was sold from the manufacturer, unlike the Ferrari on this list. Along with the exclusive group of owners that will have claim a La Voiture Noire to themselves, they have handcrafted carbon-fiber bodies that they take years to build once they have been ordered.

Rolls Royce is always in the running
The Rolls Royce brand is more well-known for its popular options like the Ghost and Phantom, and even the prices of those cars might make your jaw drop. But there is one vehicle that outprices them all. It’s the Rolls Royce Sweptail, and chances are you’ve never seen one. These $12.8 million luxury vehicles are the ultimate way to impress your friends if you can afford whatever the excruciating monthly payment is.
Of course, for the price of these cars you probably won’t see them out on the road ever, because their value is so heavily dependent on maintaining board-line non-existent mileage.
