The Most Expensive New Cars in the World in 2023
There are plenty of “Most Expensive” car lists floating around, but most include one-off supercars or cars offered only to a literal handful of established customers. They’re never really available to anyone, and in some cases, are totally custom one-offs built years ago. This list is made up of the most expensive new cars, not one-offs, and, though extremely exclusive, are available to any customer that can pony up the cha-cha.
Bugatti Chiron SuperSport: $3,300,000
Every one of these lists includes a smattering of Bugattis. This is the most expensive one the automaker makes and tops the list for the most expensive you can buy in 2023. The Chiron SuperSport features a 1500 hp quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16. Yep, 16 cylinders and four turbochargers. Bugatti is limiting production to 500 Chirons. Naturally, though initially available to anyone, all 500 spots for this hypercar are now sold.
Ferrari SF90 Stradale: $558,000
Ferrari is not shying away from electrification. The SF90, thanks to its three electric motors and twin-turbo V8, can reach 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. Its 4.0-liter V8 comes in just shy of 1,000 hp, driving all four corners. Comparing the price and power, the $558,000 tab looks like a bargain for this type of Ferrari, from our distant eyes at least.
Lamborghini Aventador: $550,542
Lamborghinis powered by the ubiquitous V12 are slowly coming to an end, as electrification looms over all new gas-powered vehicles. None are more potent than the Aventador. With 769 hp, the 6.5-liter V12 struts its 11-year reign well. Last year, it received the Ultimate Edition treatment, in both coupe and roadster form.
Rolls-Royce Phantom: $457,750
Not a sporting machine but more a luxury sedan, for the very wealthy, it’s a great family car. And if the standard Phantom is a little cramped for your liking, there is also an extended version with extra room for rear-seat passengers. Carrying all of this luxury machine and its passengers, there is a twin-turbo V12 cranking out 563 hp. At the price, you can consider it the most luxurious sedan available today.
Ferrari 812 GTS: $410,516
The 812 GTS represents what classic form of a Ferrari. V12 engine, naturally aspirated, located in the front, spinning out 789 hp. It speaks to those that look for the roots of Ferrari in a new presentation. And just to add icing on the cake, this traditional Ferrari can hit 211 mph, according to Ferrari. Combining all of that makes the expensive 812 GTS a bargain at $410,516.
Rolls-Royce Ghost: $398,850
The Ghost is a more sporting version of the Phantom, and it’s cheaper too. To some, that makes it a better version of the Phantom. Its 0-60 time is under five seconds, which seems impossible from an almost 5,500 lb sedan. Power comes from the same 6.7-liter V12 as the Phantom. Last year, it offered an upgraded Ghost Blue Badge starting at $442,700. So the standard Ghost at under $400,000 seems like a steal.
Rolls-Royce Cullinan: $332,755
You could call the Cullinan Rolls-Royce SUV. The tall body and all-wheel drive do more than hint at the association. With the Rolls grille and tall proportions, in some ways it looks like a special one-off for the Queen of England, may she rest in peace. Keep in mind that under the bonnet resides a 592-hp twin-turbo V12. And as with other Rollers, gold-plated touches can be yours, for just a bit more shekels.
