We publish a selection of the most expensive serial machines of our time.
On November 19, 1987, 1931 Bugatti Royale left the hammer - a real work of automotive art created by French craftsmen. The amount of purchase became astronomical for those years - 5.5 million dollars. But it was a rare car, produced in six copies and intended for the wealthiest people of his generation.
We suggest you look at the most expensive cars of our time. (And try to understand why people spend so much money on just "means of transportation").
10 - Porsche 918 Spyder
The most economical car in all senses. From the price, which is "only" 845 thousand dollars (for our list is a very modest amount), and ending with fuel consumption: only 3 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. Such savings are achieved due to the unique feature of the car - a supercar hybrid. But it does not affect the speed parameters in any way.
Seven-speed gearbox, the engine for 230 horsepower, cruising speed of 320 km/h and acceleration to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds - this is enough for anyone.
9 - Hennessey Venom GT
The eerily secret and mysterious supercar of nine is no joke to you. But, besides the halo of mystery, this car has something to show you - for example, the speed of 440 km/h.
One of the discreet owners of this supercar is Aerosmith soloist Stephen Tyler. He paid $1.1 million (and $950,000 for the coupe version) for the pleasure of driving this work of art.
8 - SSC Tuatara
Tattooara (otherwise known as the Gattheria) is a New Zealand reptile that lives on several islands in the archipelago. It is also a supercar that absorbed all the predatory and snake traits of its "prototype". Aggressive design, heavy-duty engine at 1350 horsepower, top speed of 443 km/h. No one can get away from this $970,000 car dragon.
7 - Pagani Huayra
The Italian factories of Pagani are busy working on this supercar for a year ahead. Despite the astronomical value ($1.3 million), the manufacturer has no shortage of people willing to buy a car. However, they have to wait, because only 20 Pagani Huayra are produced per year. Supercar has under the hood engine for 700 horsepower, as well as a top speed of 387 km/h.
6 - Maybach Landaulet
For 1.4 million dollars you can buy this luxury car legend. And it will not be a supercar suitable only for racing on private tracks, but the legendary Maybach.
It's an ultra-comfortable car for a man of high status. It has a built-in seat massager, mini-bar, TV and satellite phone, as well as a salon decorated with mahogany and white leather. But that's not all. In addition to comfort, you'll also get speed - and all thanks to the 612 horsepower engine.
5 - Aston Martin One-77.
The Aston Martin is not only the choice of everyone who appreciates speed and style, but also (yes, you should have guessed it by now) the favorite car of British special agent James Bond. It's one thing that makes a car dealership work tirelessly on its cars.
The most elegant car on the list, the Aston Martin One-77 costs $1.4 million and is said to fully justify the money invested in it. With 750 horsepower, acceleration to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, the One-77 is the fastest car in its class.
4 - Koenigsegg Agera R
For the $1.7 million you accidentally stuck in your sock drawer, you don't just buy a car, you buy the most advanced biofuel technology in one place.

The hybrid engine produces 440 kilometers per hour at maximum speed. Agera R proves that a supercar can be both environmentally friendly and fast.
3- Zenvo ST1
Danish supercar of 2008, which is distinguished by its incredible (and many people think, excessive) power. The 1104-horsepower engine makes this car a fierce mustang riding forward.
However, the car has been criticized more than once, and on the Speedtest in the Top Gear program because of problems with the cooling system Zenvo ST1 flashed in the middle of the track. The price of this "miracle" is 1.8 million dollars. The set also includes a $50,000 Aspen watch.
2 - Ferrari 599XX
To get this Ferrari, you must not only pay $2 million but also get special permission from the management of the concern. And if you do get it, don't be in a hurry to get excited. You can't ride on this supercar in the city limits. At your service, there are special tracks on which this steel beast can show its full potential. Up to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, 750 horsepower engine and perfect aerodynamics will make you believe you're flying a supersonic plane.
1 - Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Supersport
Despite the price of 2.6 million dollars, there are always those who want to buy this crown of the automobile industry. But unfortunately for them, only 30 copies of this beauty were produced. The engine is 1200 horsepower, speed 431 km/h. When this supercar appears on the track, all other cars have to give in to the power of "jet plane without wings".
