Even if you’re not personally in the market for some of the world’s most expensive cars, you can look for free. Enjoy the innovative looks and wild price tags of some of 2019’s most prestigious luxury cars.
10. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio
The Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio is one of the priciest Ferraris ever made. It’s also one of the most exclusive, with only six units manufactured.
Each of these was sold to a hand-picked customer for $3 million (around R42 million) a pop.
This Ferrari is also one of the best-looking cars on this list, featuring a sleek design with an all-carbon fibre frame, no roof and two seats. It’s about 150 kilograms lighter than its previous model.
9. Aston Martin Valkyrie

Priced at about $3.2 million (over R45 million), the Aston Martin Valkyrie sold out before it even hit the market.
This model is a renovation of the old Aston Martin Red-Bull AM-RB 001. It was built collaboratively by Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing with the intention of creating a street-legal track car. It reaches a top speed of 321 kilometres per hour.
Manufacturers are calling it the fastest street-legal car in the world.
8. Bugatti Chiron Sport
Cruising into eighth place is the uber-stylish Bugatti Chiron Sport. First unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, this is the faster, cooler and more expensive sibling of the Bugatti Chiron.
Thanks to extra carbon fibre, this model is 18 kilograms lighter than the standard Chiron, making it ideal for the track. It comes at a price of $3.26 million (over R46 million).
7. Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Vivere

This Bugatti is a limited-edition model that’s not only one of the most expensive cars in the world, but also one of the fastest. It can reach a top speed of 410 kph.
The car features a carbon-fibre body; black and white leather and carbon cabin; and LED lights galore. It sits pretty at a price of $3.4 million (over R48 million).
6. Lykan Hypersport

Priced at over $3 million (over R42 million), the Lykan Hypersport is one of the only vehicles with jewel-embedded headlights. Not just any jewels, either – 420 15-carat diamonds to be exact, although this is customisable.
Built in Lebanon by W Motors, the Lykan Hypersport features striking good looks and impressive performance and speed. It even made an appearance on “Furious 7”.
5. Lamborghini Veneno

No list of exclusive, desirable cars is complete without a Lamborghini.
Designed to look as sleek and smooth as it drives, this model is entirely made from carbon fibre, making it as lightweight and aerodynamic as possible. Just nine units were made, each with a price tag of $4.5 million (more than R63 million).
4. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
Another diamond-encrusted vehicle worthy of its price tag, the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita features carbon fibres coated with diamond dust!
The car also comes kitted with a unique dual carbon rear wing, airbags, ABS carbon ceramic brakes, tire monitoring systems, paddle shift and a hydraulic system. It will set you back a cool $4.8 million (over R67 million).
3. Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero

The Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero was a one-off creation that debuted in 2004. It remains one of the most expensive cars in the world in 2019.
This model was inspired by the Maybach. It features the same twin-turbo engine and 1,020 Newton-metres of torque. Its top speed is 350 kilometres per hour.
And the price? A jaw-dropping $8 million (over R113 million).
2. Sweptail by Rolls Royce
Rolls Royce is famous for its luxury vehicles, but the Sweptail really takes things to the next level.
This custom-made car boasts stunning coach work, a panoramic sunroof and wood and leather handcrafted interior. It took about four years to make its grand debut.
Only one unit was made, and it sold for a sensational $12.8 million (around R180 million).
1. Bugatti La Voiture Noire
The Bugatti La Voiture Noire officially overtook the Sweptail as the world’s most expensive car in 2017. It clocked a selling price of $18.7 million (more than R264 million) after taxes.
This one-of-a-kind model was designed as a modern interpretation of Jean Bugatti’s personal vehicle. It features a quad-turbo 8.0 litre W16 engine and an impressive six exhaust tips.
It also has cool new wheels – not to mention a massive badge that lights up as you drive. Unfortunately for interested buyers, this one-off supercar has already been sold.
