What Are the Top 10 Most Expensive Cars?

Bugatti Veyron
What automaker makes the most expensive cars? Rolls-Royce? Bentley? If that’s your guess then the Occupy protestors probably aren’t complaining about you. For members of the 1% — or probably the 0.1% in this regard — there’s an even more exclusive list of rides, with price tags nearly as long as their nameplates.

To be fair, you’ve probably heard of a couple of these cars. The Bugatti Veyron remains the most expensive car on the market, according to Forbes.com, which compiled the top 10 list. The Bugatti comes in at $2.6 million for the newish 1,200-horsepower Supersport trim. We’ve also looked at the Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid, which is actually one of the cheapest (at $845,000) and least powerful cars on the list.

The just discontinued Maybach Landaulet is the only vehicle on the list that could comfortably fit more than two occupants: The rest are what we'd call super exotics. Most vehicles in this super pack have gullwing doors, carry more than 1,000 ponies under the hood and can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in fewer than 3 seconds. Even if you have the money to purchase one of these puppies, some of the models are available only if the automaker invites you to purchase one, like the Ferrari 599XX. If you want to fit cargo in the oddly shaped trunks found on a few of the rear-mid-engine models, it’ll require specially designed luggage, which can cost $30,000 a set, says Forbes.

Check out the full list below, and make sure to read Forbes’s article for more information about these most expensive cars.

1.  Bugatti Veyron Supersport: $2.6 million
2.  Ferrari 599XX: $2 million
3.  Zenvo ST1: $1.8 million

5.  Aston Martin One-77: $1.4 million
6.  Maybach Landaulet: $1.4 million
7.  Pagani Huayra: $1.3 million
8.  Hennessey Venom GT: $1 million
9.  SSC Tuatara: $970,000
10. Porsche 918 Spyder: $845,000

"zero to 60 mph in fewer than 3 seconds"

Still don't make you think that the MY13 Nissan GT-R, at around $100K, a steal?

I'd take the Landaulet and the one-77. Then maybe the Ferrari if I felt like it lol.

Bugatti, Ferrari, Aston, Porsche. Keep the rest.

This car used to be from one of the fastest coolest car. Though now SSC thrust, and Bugatti Veyron SuperSport has beaten the speed of this BASE Model. This car was the fastest car in 2008, but now not anymore, its in the 20-30 fastest car now!
