The most expensive cars in the world are about so much more than transportation.
These rolling works of art encapsulate the priorities of the 1 percent, and in that universe, flamboyance and swagger take precedence over practicality and efficiency. Lifestyle criticisms aside, these are truly mind-boggling machines.
So whether your name is Zuckerberg, Gates, Bezos, or McDuck, these rides are for you.
$13 MILLION – ROLLS-ROYCE SWEPTAIL
Rolls-Royce will build you anything if you have a thick enough wallet to pay for it. Take the Sweptail, for example.
It’s a one-off coupe that a customer commissioned from the ground up. Its design draws inspiration from the brand’s classic models while borrowing styling cues from the world of super-yachts.
Nearly every part of this car is unique, and the project took four years from start to finish, which explains why it cost approximately $13 million.
