Do you want to know which Bugatti is the most expensive this year? Do you want to know which Pagani is the most costly automobile you can’t afford? What about the historic Ferrari, which has yet to be dethroned as the world’s most valuable automobile?
We’ve got your back. You’ll enjoy reading about various four-wheeled wonders — some from previous rankings, some brand-new for this year – in our updated 2021 ranking of the most expensive automobiles.
We’re excited to provide our official list of 2021’s five most expensive automobiles, which includes storied, famous brands from revered auto houses as well as a few startling newer models.
5 Most Expensive Cars in the World 2021
1. Ferrari 250 GTO 1963
The most expensive car in 2021 will be the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO, which will cost $70,000,000. We go back in time to find the most expensive car ever made. After all, if you’re going to spend money on a beautiful supercar, it should be able to tell you a fantastic narrative.
The 250 GTO won the Tour de France Automobile in 1964, marking Ferrari’s seventh consecutive victory in the race. Only 36 of these cars were produced between 1962 and 1963, and the one that is the most expensive in the world, at an incredible $70,000,000, won both the Tour de France and the Le Mans.
Its top speed of 174 mph and acceleration of 0-100kph (0-60mph) in 6.1 seconds aren’t enough to pique the interest of today’s car aficionados. However, it was the fastest automobile in the world in the 1960s, and it is still by far the most costly car in the world today, decades later. Some call this stunning automobile the “Picasso of the Automobile World,” while others refer to it as the “Holy Grail of Ferraris.”
The Ferrari 250 GTO from 1963 is still the best-selling car in the world, and that is unlikely to change very soon. American fashion designer Ralph Lauren, Pink Floyd musician Nick Mason, and Jon A. Shirley, the former President and COO of Microsoft, are among the current owners of the world’s most expensive car.
2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire
When Bugatti unveiled their next supercar in 2019, they made a smart branding decision. The French maker chose a subdued, minimalistic, and instantly distinctive title over a flamboyant introduction and name designed to thrill: La Voiture Noire. The Black Car, to be precise. There’s no need for any further explanation.
Going into specifics, however, does not detract from the wonder of this stunning automobile with an astronomically high price tag: It has a hand-sculpted carbon-fibre body, a quad-turbo W16 8.10L engine with 1500 horsepower, and a 0-100kph (0-60mph) acceleration time of 2.4 seconds.
It has a top speed of 420 kilometres per hour (260 miles per hour), and its entire performance has been meticulously crafted by an automaker known for decades of manufacturing the world’s most powerful cars.
In 2019, it was the most expensive new vehicle on the market. Two years have passed, and no one has yet to create an expensive luxury car capable of dethroning La Voiture Noire. For the second year in a row, it outperforms the most costly modern automobile on our list in terms of price.
Do you mind giving a $18,700,000 check for a Bugatti La Voiture Noire?
3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta.
The Zonda was the first car produced by Pagani Automobili. Years ago, production should have halted in favour of the Huayra; instead, Pagani has released a plethora of Zonda special editions. It is currently priced at a whopping $17,600,000.
The Zonda HP Barchetta was given its moniker – barchetta – because it reminded Horatio Pagani of a ‘little boat’ in Italian. Its frame is entirely made of carbon fibre, giving it a lightest body and a zippy, quick sensation; it’s blue-tinted, has a small windscreen, and measures only 21 inches tall (0.5 metres) at its tallest point.
Unfortunately, the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta is also the most costly automobile that isn’t available for purchase. Only three automobiles of this one-of-a-kind Zonda model were ever produced. One of these automobiles sold for $17.6 million the last time it was auctioned.
It accelerates from zero to sixty miles per hour (zero to one hundred kilometres per hour) in 3.4 seconds. The Zonda HP Barchetta has a top speed of 355 kilometres per hour (220 miles per hour).
4. Bugatti Centodieci.
The Bugatti Centodieci 2021 will be even more exclusive: only ten of these opulent hypercars will be produced. It has been priced at $9,000,000 and despite the exorbitant price, each has already found a delighted customer.
Bugatti, which is already recognised for its unusual bodywork and opulent comfort amenities, has gone to great lengths to make the Centodieci remarkable – and absolutely decadent. It may not be the fastest Bugatti on the road with a 1577-hp quad-turbo W-16, but it is the fastest-accelerating.
Bugatti pays homage to the EB110 (also known as the “centodieci”), a supercar built in the early 1990s. That automobile lacked the necessary time to perform as expected. This automobile will make up for it by providing plenty of performance and elegance. Bugatti claims a 0-62mph (or somewhat more than 0-100kph) time of 2.4 seconds. The Centodieci will have a top speed of 236 mph (379 kph), which is far slower than the Chiron, but this hypercar compensates with its distinct modern look.
5. Bugatti Divo.
The next car in our ranking, beginning with the 2021 Divo, retain Bugatti’s reputation for luxury, pricey supercars. Bugatti’s Chiron was such a hit that the Divo, a car that closely resembles it, has several traits in common with it.
The Divo, on the other hand, has a more exotic appearance and is far more exclusive. So, do you want to part with $6,000,000 for this beauty?
But unfortunately, there will only be 40 Divos made and sold. Each has already been claimed. Improved suspension, a considerably lighter frame for enhanced speed, and a new dorsal fin are among the upgrades. The Divo has an 8.0L W-16 engine with four turbochargers on the inside. As a result, the Divo has 1500 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour (0 to 62 miles per hour) in just over 2.4 seconds.
What is its top speed? 380 kph (or 236mph). Bugatti cut the interior comfort materials and infotainment to a bare minimum to save weight. The steering wheel, on the other hand, is made of plush imitation suede, and the exterior’s blue and black theme is carried inside as well.
