When it comes to being overpriced, there are few categories in the world that can express the word so well as that of the sports racing car category. Sure, there are luxury cars that one may occasional y see rolling around town, and they can indeed be expensive, but what we’re talking about right now is the sort of car that one may never even lay eyes on in their lifetime, let alone actually climb inside and take for a spin.
We’re talking about the elite sports racing cars of the world, the kind that are more a rolling art form, as opposed to being actual transportation. The kind that one dare not even touch, for fear of somehow having to make a payment of some sort. The kind that only the 1% will ever experience.
Here are some of the most expensive sports racing cars in the world, all of which are legally allowed on the streets, limited run and collectors auction vehicles not included.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
First on the list, and the most expensive street legal racing vehicle currently in production today, the Trevita will cost a person roughly 4.8 million USD to own. You may be wondering what could possible make a vehicle cost so much, and it may not even surprise you to know that this majestic beauty is literally covered in diamonds. No, that isn’t a joke. In order to create a coating that was both flexible and tough as nails, the manufacturers developed a diamond dust infused outer layer for the car. The price may now start to make sense, but the Trevita still won’t exactly be making it onto the Christmas lists of any average Joe.
Only a few hundred thousand cheaper than the Trevita, the Lamborghini Veneno is certainly a spectacle to behold. Sleek, sexy, and looking undeniably deadly form every angle, the vehicle certainly lives up to the Spanish translated name of Venom, or Poison. The Veneno was made to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th birthday, and will set you back around 4.5 million USD. You may have to do more than hit the jackpot a few times in real money online roulette, in order to afford this beauty. But then the list of people on Earth who can afford such a car is probably so short it could be printed on a matchbox.
W Motors Lykan Hypersport
Bringing the price tag down over a million USD, the Lykan Hypersport may be a bit more affordable than the other vehicles on this list, but will still set you back about 3.4 million USD. After having a starring roll in the Fast and the Furious movie franchise, however, the Lykan is perhaps the more recognisable. Even so, we doubt that this stunningly beautiful car is flying off the shelves, given that part of the price is due to the fact that the headlights are unnecessarily encrusted with priceless jewels. And did we mention that the interior looks more like the inside of a spaceship, as opposed to anything legally allowed to drive on the roads?
