Little did Carl Benz realise that his once pondered idea in 1886 would lead to the luxurious super cars of today.
Here is a list of the best and most expensive cars
1. McLaren F1
A top speed of 240mph, 0-60 in 3.1 seconds, 550 horse power per ton, beautiful interior and gold-foil plated engine preventing over heating. This luxuriously comfortable super car combines performance with style at a price tag of $970,000, being the cheapest on our list.
2. Hennessy Veno GT Spyder
Voted the worlds best convertible super car, you’ll certainly be holding onto your hat with 0-60mph in only 2.5 seconds! It’s 2 Garrets Superchargers ramp this convertible rocket up to a massive 1200 horsepower. Which is no wonder why the Veno GT has a world renowned fastest acceleration. Buying one of these beauties is fairly difficult as they only make up to 10 a year, but if you’ve got a spare $1.1 million handy then put your name on the list.

3. Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
This Lamborghini has a price tag of a mere $300,000 yet it would appear the rich and famous prefer it to thousands of more expensive and one-off super cars. Lamborghini’s have always been the popular dream car for generations, yet it appears that many are splurging extra hundreds of thousands to fully customise their already glamorous look.
Here we see a Aventador Roadster owned by famous US rapper Tyga, custom wrapped in a rose-gold.
If pulling up in a Aventador Roadster didn’t turn enough heads, why not do what Nicki Minaj has done and spray it bright candy pink, with custom black and pink rims.
The standard Roadster can reach 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and tops out around 217 mph. For the cheaper price of $300,000 Lamborghini have really made the Aventador a real rich boys toy.
4. DeLorean DMC-12
This one of a kind Delorean DMC-12 has been customised hugely by West-Coast Customs for the price of $900,000. Under the Brand name IAMAUTO, the owner and founder ‘Will I Am’ has so far only built 2 cars including his newest 1958 Custom Corvette that he designed on Photosh
5. Bugatti Veyron Super Sports
With a 8 litre engine, 4 super chargers and a max speed of 267 mph! this is the fastest ‘road legal’ super car you can buy. All for the price of $2.6 million, however some buyers have found that the stunning standard look of the Veyron wasn’t enough, for example Pop sensation Flo Rida decided to get his Bugatti tailored with gold wrapping and gold rims, all for a huge extra cost.
