Bugattis and Bentleys often come to mind when considering ultra-luxury vehicles; however, there are plenty of other luxurious vehicles which justify the expense as well.
W Motors’ Lykan Hypersport can be seen in Fast & Furious 7, one of only seven in existence and costing an eye-watering $3.4 million each.
1. Bugatti La Voiture Noire
The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is an exclusive sports car designed by Bugatti exclusively for one customer. Based on the Chiron, its exterior boasts black paint with unique wheels and six exhaust pipes for added flair.
It was sold to an anonymous buyer and took two and a half years for completion, which speaks volumes about its intricate craftsmanship and ingenuity.
This car was inspired by the Type 57 SC Atlantic, a four-piece custom Bugatti designed in 1934 and driven by Jean Bugatti himself. Stephan Winkelmann described this particular Bugatti model as being emblematic of their ability to craft truly personalized products.
2. Pagani Huayra
Pagani Huayra is one of the world’s most expensive cars and an exquisite supercar. Equipped with a powerful twin-turbo V12 engine that produces 730 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque, power is transferred via seven-speed single clutch transmission to drive rear wheels.
This car can reach speeds of 230 mph, though its more suited for track driving than street use due to the unique suspension system and variable flap on its body that create more downforce.
Its monocoque is equipped with an integral safety cage, while the seats feature Ener-Core EC 50 construction with FIA-approved foam padding and carbon fibre headrests to guard against lateral forces. A quick-release steering wheel offers all essential controls, such as traction control, ABS settings and radio communications.

Its interior features poised Macassar Ebony and open-pore Paldao wood veneers, set off by Moccasin and Dark Spice leathers, plus custom seats with embroidered headrests and armrests, champagne cooler in center console, attache cases for laptops and other items, custom seats with embroidered headrests and armrests and attache cases that hold laptops or other items.
4. Ferrari 250 GTO
The Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the world’s most renowned and expensive automobiles, boasting a 3.0-liter V12 engine capable of producing 300 horsepower to achieve speeds up to 170 mph.

Recently, a 1963 GTO sold for $70 Million at a private auction – setting a world record price for any car auctioned.
