If you won the lottery or came into a fortune some by some other means, what car would you buy? If money was no object what would be the vehicle that you would choose to be seen in? Here is just five of the most expensive cars in the world for you to consider.
Rolls Royce Phantom
If you have £200,000 to spare then you may choose to buy a Rolls Royce Phantom to park in your driveway. This model was released in 2003 and comes with all the luxury that is associated with such a recognizable name; the makers have also done all they can to produce a modern Rolls Royce. It comes with a V12 engine that can provide you with 453 bhp to use as you wish; in just 5.7 seconds this car can go from 0 to 60 miles an hour and this is what you call effortless acceleration.
Mercedes SLR McLaren
This car is going to set you back about £300,000, but you may feel that this is a fair price for such an excellent vehicle. The SLR stands for Sports Light Racing and that is exactly what this car is all about. It provides a perfect combination of agility and beauty and really tells the world that you have arrived.
Porsche Carrera GT
This one is going to put you out of pocket by about £310,000. The Porsche name is enough to have most people thinking of lavishness and the Carrera GT does not disappoint. This comes equipped with a 5.7 litre V10 engine and if speed is your thing then you are on to a winner with this car. This car can go from 0 to 62.5 miles in just 3.9 seconds. You will also be able to reach speeds up to 212 miles an hour – sweet.
This car comes in at about £650,000 and at over twice the price of a Porsche you will be looking for something a bit special – this car certainly is that. This vehicle is built to Formula 1 standards and would be able to hold its own on a race track. As well as being a powerful beast this car is also a great beauty that can get you driving at speeds of about 186 miles an hour.
This car is available to buy for a whopping £1,100,000. This is not only the most expensive car in the world but it is also the most powerful – you would expect something at that price. If you want to drive in excess of 250 miles an hour then this will be the obvious choice. The car looks spectacular and there is absolutely no doubt that this would make your neighbours jealous – no matter who your neighbours are.
Owning an expensive car can’t guarantee your future happiness; having one of these babies to greet you on your driveway every morning would at least be one reason to be cheerful.
