For some people, life depends on what motivates them. For others, it is about what they drive. The car has evolved from something more than just a vehicle to drive it from point A to point B, or the horse-free car for a nice family Sunday trip. These days are a status symbol, a fashion statement, an extension of who and what you are.
All the machines are not the same. There are those who do not deserve a look, there are others that we would like to have, and there are some that can only be received by very, very rich people.
In the recent Forbes magazine article, several parking attendants mentioned the qualities they most admired in luxury cars driven daily, even for a few minutes. His answers were curious and practical. They emphasized the importance of engine sound, noble materials and the special lighting used in the interior, as well as special details such as the sound of the opening and closing doors and the horn. Interestingly, many have underestimated the value of a vehicle’s technology.
The Rolls-Royce Sweptail, which was revealed, last year as the most expensive new car in history, was unveiled last year in the form of a single order (worth $ 13 million), personalized for a roll with ornaments. – Royce’s customer, and was the most notable car produced by the British brand.
This is one of the few two-seater cars built by Rolls-Royce. It is inspired by the extravagant forms of the ’30s, from which the rear evokes images of the fast tail of the Rolls-Royce boat. The company has replaced the back seat with an intermediate wooden shelf with an illuminated glass frame. Further back there is a wooden box, polished and equipped with luggage rails and surrounded by a large drop-glass roof.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita of 2010 is one of the fastest journeys on the planet, with a speed of 254km/h. And only two have been made.
But what was also impressive when it came to the auction in Monterey, California, was the fact that the 1,018 horsepower hyper car belonged to boxing champ Floyd “Money” Mayweather.
Basically, you can describe Trevita as a variant of the limited edition of Koenigsegg CCXR Edition. The name means “three white” in Swedish, a reference to the extreme rarity of the model and the remarkable external nuances.
While the other composite supercars show their raw black fabrics (or occasionally a colored coloring), Trevita uses the white carbon fiber, created internally through a unique production process.
There are many incredible things about Trevita, but it is the exterior of the car that makes it truly unique. Koenigsegg called the “Shimmering Diamond Weave” milestone, indicating that when the sun hits it, “it shines like millions of small white diamonds have been infused into the exposed carbon fiber body”.
Originally Koenigsegg planned to build three examples of Trevita (with the name “three white”). However, the exterior of Shimmering Diamond Weave was so difficult to produce that the manufacturer produced only two, which made them even more unicorns.
Like all other Lambo supercars, the new Venevo takes its name from the battle arena: Poison is one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls of all time. In 1914, he wounded the famous bullfighter José Sánchez Rodríguez during the bullfight in the sand of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in Andalusia, Spain.
Although we are sorry to do so, we must start this good news with bad news: the new Lamborghini Veneno will be limited to three units and, despite its huge price, to 3 million euros ($ 3.9 million) current exchange rate). This four-wheel drive supercar with a central engine is available for sale on Mobile.de, such as the German Craigslist. However, the announcement indicates that the car is located in the United States.
At the time of its release, it had a $4.5 million MSRP, which briefly yielded the most expensive production car in the world. We’ll save you some calculations and tell you it’s a $5 million award in just four years. Not bad, since the average car depreciates by about 35% in three years.
This Lamborghini Veneno works with the same 6.5-liter V-12 from the Aventador. It produces 740 horsepower and flies from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds with a top speed electronically limited to 220km/h. Throw 1.41 g into the corners.
Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron Mansory Vivere
There are supercars and then there is the Bugatti Veyron Mansory Vivere. A look and you will say “Wow!”
Nicknamed “the crazy wizards of the motoring world”, Mansory has once again presented a new creation to whet the appetite of supercar fans all over the world.
This is described by the manufacturer as a “strictly limited version” and is considered one of his predecessors, the Vincero. Aesthetically speaking, the car is surprising with a hood, modified wings and an elegant front apron. The LED daytime running lights on the front and rear headlights add class to the overall look of the car.
With $ 3.5 million, the supercar is a wheeled mini fortune, and with the appearance that accompanies it. However, the appearance of Bugatti Veyron Vivere is not everything. The car has more finishes with striking alloy wheels. The wheel design in a five-twin-spoke model adds a nominal value to the car.
The lacquered carbon fiber finish gives the whole body an elegant finish that sets it apart from other big names in the supercar category. In fact, carbon fiber has been widely used to produce enough parts.
With a top speed of 410 km (255 mph), this car can reach a distance of 0 to 100 km (60 mph) in 2.5 seconds, which is considered quite powerful, but a car of this category is expected.
W Motors Lykan Hypersport
Between the hard bodies of the film and the muscle engines, there is a small sexy figure that comes out of the head and looks at the rest: its name is Lykan HyperSport. The car is a $ 3.4 million beast with a top speed of 240 miles per hour and a raptor’s face. The large audience that watched the film last weekend will not soon forget it, even though they may never see the vehicle in real life.
Lykan is the first supercar produced by a company based in the Middle East (W Motors) (based in Dubai). It is also one of the most expensive production cars ever sold. But it’s not the only rocket to get out recently that costs over a million dollars.
Brands make these cars because people buy them. The last few years have seen an explosion of royalties and magnates from all over the world who have bought entire fleets of Aston Martin and Lamborghini to support their trends. Bloomberg has discovered more than three dozen new billionaires around the world since January and more than 300 since 2012. They buy cars in Los Angeles, Doha, Moscow, Sao Paulo and Shanghai. Some, like hotel magnate Steve Wynn, buy them to support their business interests and personal lives.
