Ultimate Luxury Rides: The 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World for 2023
Who wouldn’t want to drive an exceptional car? Reserved for the wealthy elite, these one-of-a-kind vehicles make the entire world take notice of their unique designs, their muscular engines and plenty of horsepower. Powerful, seductive and original, luxury cars make us dream. But as these elite cars get better and better over the years, their prices go up too!
That’s why we took it upon ourselves to find out how much the most expensive car in the world costs. Back in 2018, our top 10 most expensive cars in the world cost a total of almost $28.5 million. In 2022, our top 10 cost a whopping $114.6 million. That’s enough to make someone aspire to win the lottery! In the meantime, let’s discover the 10 most expensive supercars that are like works of art.
The Top 10
- 1. Rolls-Royce Boat Tail
- 2. Bugatti la Voiture Noire
- 3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta
- 4. Rolls-Royce Sweptail
- 5. Bugatti Centodieci
- 6. Lamborghini Veneno
- 7. Maybach Exelero
- 8. Bugatti Divo
- 9. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
- 10. Aspark Owl
1. Rolls-Royce Boat Tail: $26.2 million
The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is by far the most expensive new car of all time. This 18.7-foot-long convertible with its vintage and modern design is powered by a twin-turbo V12 (6.75 liters for 563 horsepower) and 8-speed automatic transmission. This “rolling yacht” was produced only three times, and reserved for billionaires given its astronomical price.
2. Bugatti la Voiture Noire: $18.1 million
This road-legal one-off takes the French brand to the top of the podium. Inspired by the Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic, everything about this hypercar is exceptional: An 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine with 1,500 horsepower, assembled by hand. It is the work of a goldsmith, so it is not surprising that this unique example was acquired by a Swiss buyer.
3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta: $17.9 million
Horacio Pagani – from the eponymous firm – had this concept car built for him and two other lucky unknown owners. If this roadster made a lot of noise when it was presented, it remains an enigma: Its technical information is, at least at the moment, a mystery.
4. Rolls-Royce Sweptail: $13.2 million
Rolls-Royce, the luxury car brand par excellence, is on the list again with this one-off, built on demand: the Sweptail. This is another concept car that calls itself the “automotive equivalent of haute couture”. And besides looking good, it has power under the hood to the rhythm of a V12 engine with 453 horsepower.
5. Bugatti Centodieci: $9.1 million
We’re back in France and finally under the $10 million mark with the Bugatti Centodieci. Inspired by a tribute to the Bugatti EB110 and built on a Bugatti Chiron base, the “110” has a lot going for it. You get 1,600 horsepower and an 8-liter W16 with a top speed of 236 miles per hour. Boom!
6. Lamborghini Veneno: $8.3 million
Let’s go back to the future of the automobile with the Lamborghini Veneno, a roadster that defies the law of gravity with its cosmic curves inspired by aeronautics. This hypercar, produced only nine times, cannot fly but can reach 221 miles per hour with its 6.5-liter V12. In short, it’s a car that puts stars in your eyes.
7. Maybach Exelero: $8 million
Here’s one more unique model, the Maybach Exelero. This coupe was ordered by a tire brand, Fulda, to test and promote a new series of tires. The exercise was a success: its performance on the track was stellar because of its 5.9-liter engine and 700 horsepower. It was definitely a good deal from Fulda.
8. Bugatti Divo: $5.7 million
What do the 40 owners of the Bugatti Divo have in common? They all own a Bugatti Chiron as well. While the two luxury cars are similar (the same 8-liter W16 engine with 1,500 hp and a similar interior), the Divo stands out for its exceptional design.
9. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita: $4.8 million
The limited-edition CCXR was only produced twice, and the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is less known than its “sisters” but is no less powerful and fast: It goes from 0 to 124 mph in 8.75 seconds. This Swedish car weighs 1.4 tons, a featherweight compared to Ferrari, Aston Martin or Lamborghini
10. Aspark Owl: $3.3 million
This Japanese supercar is not technically the 10th most expensive car in the world, but it is the most expensive electric car in the world. It is also the fastest electric car! Made only 50 times, it has four super-powerful electric motors that make it go from 0 to 60 mph in 1.69 seconds, a record. Another exceptional fact is that it is one of the lowest electric cars with a height of 39 inches. The Aspark Owl is, therefore, No. 1 for electric cars on many points.
10 most expensive cars in the world: Most expensive one costs over Rs 200 crore!
10. Bugatti Mistral — $5.0 Million (approximately Rs 40.54 crore)
The Bugatti Mistral sends the iconic W16 engine off in style. With 1,577 horsepower and no roof, the Mistral takes the best bits of the Chiron and borrows elements from the Bolide and Divo to create a truly unique roadster. Of course, Bugatti plans to build just 99 examples of the Mistral at the cost of around $5.0 million in the US – and all of them are already accounted for.
9. Pagani Huayra Imola — $5.4 Million (approximately Rs 43.79 crore)
The Huayra Imola packs a twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine producing 827 hp and 1099 Nm of torque. The Huayra Imola is estimated to cost around $5.4 million new, which would make it the second most expensive Pagani of all time.
8. Bugatti Divo — $5.8 Million (approximately Rs 44.5 crore)
The Divo shares a lot with the dare-we-say cheaper Chiron, but has a lot more going on for it to justify the price difference. It has lighter wheels, a carbon fibre intercooler, and other changes that make the Divo lighter than the Chiron. It makes the same 1,500 hp, however, the Divo’s aerodynamic setup makes it 8 seconds quicker on the Nardo test track.
7. SP Automotive Chaos — $6.4 Million (approximately Rs 49.07 crore)
Spyros Panopoulos Automotive is a new name in the field of large and ridiculously fast cars. The Chaos (rather aptly named) boasts 2,000 hp from its 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V10. There is apparently a more expensive version of this car — one that makes 3,000 hp!
6. Pagani Codalunga $7.4 Million (approximately Rs 60 crore)
Inspired by 1960s Italian coachbuilding, the stunning Codalunga gets a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 producing 829 hp and 1097 Nm of torque, paired with a seven-speed sequential transmission for a race-car–like feel.
5. Mercedes-Maybach Exelero — $8.0 Million (approximately Rs 61.34 crore)
A one-off ultra-high-performance car a 690 bhp twin-turbocharged V12 engine that does 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and can reach 349 km/h. All this is combined with ultra-fine luxury.

4. Bugatti Centodieci — $9.0 Million (approximately Rs 69 crore)
The most powerful Bugatti to roll out of the French manufacturer’s production line sits even above the Chiron – not just in terms of power but also in price. The 8.0-liter W16 engine produces 1,600 hp and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.4 seconds. The top speed has been electronically limited to 378 km/h.
3. Rolls-Royce Sweptail — $12.8 Million (approximately Rs 98.14 crore)
One-off and hand-built, Rolls-Royce Sweptail used to wear the crown as the world’s most expensive car. It was commissioned in 2013 by a super-yacht and aircraft specialist. A 6.75-litre V12 powertrain with 453 bhp under the bonnet, the exclusive Rolls is surely the crème de la crème of luxury.
2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire — $13.4 Million (approximately Rs 102.74 crore)
A modern interpretation of Jean Bugatti’s personal Type 57 SC Atlantic that got lost during World War II, the one of the one 1,500 hp Bugatti La Voiture Noire was for a bit the ‘most expensive car in the world’ until the Rolls below rolled out.
1. Rolls-Royce Boat Tail — $28.0 Million (estimated) (approximately Rs 214.59 crore)
A successor to the stunning Sweptail, the Boat Tail has custom high-end finishes inside and a ‘hosting suite’ with a champagne fridge along with a sun umbrella. Rolls do not announce official price tags on their cars since a lot of it is bespoke.
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.
