The World’s Most Expensive Super and HyperSuper Cars
From Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Aston Martin, W Motors, Lamborghini (OTCMKT:VLKAY) and Bugatti, these are some of the world’s most expensive motorcars, as follows:
Just 99 of these mega machines will be built and, expectedly, they’re all sold out already. The car is being developed in association with the Adrian Newey-led Red Bull Racing F1 team so expect those track-winning combination of mechanics and aerodynamics to come into play in this road-car.
Deliveries of the Valkyrie are expected to begin towards the end of this year.
What we know so far about it is that it will have a 6.5-litre V12 engine assisted by a hybrid battery system that is speculated to collectively generate around 1,000hp.
The engineers are working at reducing the overall weight of the car to 1,000 kgs. With a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, strap a pair of wings to it and watch it lift-off.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Lamborghini. a unit of Volkswagen AG (OTCMKT:VLKAY) debuted this Supercar 5 years ago to celebrate its 50th anni, just 5 units were built. Of the 4, 1 was used for testing and the other was reserved for Lamborghini itself, leaving just 3 for sale, they were sold.
The 6.4-litre V12 Veneno Roadster produces 690Nm of torque and 740hp of power. A lethal combination that results in a Top speed of 355kph.
The Bugatti Chiron Sport
At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti, also a unit of Volkswagen AG, unveiled this new Sport version of its seminal Chiron HyperSuper car which was launched 2 years ago.
The new Chiron Sport has the same engine as the regular Chiron; a quad-turbo, 8-litre W16 engine that generates 1,479 hp and 1,599Nm of torque .
But the game-changer here is Bugatti’s ability to strip the car of every last gram of excess weight. Those measures include the slightest details like the windshield wipers, which for the first time ever in a car, are now made entirely out of carbon fibre and are 1.4 kilos lighter than the one you’d find on the regular Chiron.
Further justifying that Sport tag is a new stiffer suspension and a revised steering setup to make sure that it is always in attack mode
The Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta
No one but the 200 Ferrari clienti who were invited to and purchased the LaFerrari Aperta HyperSuper car which made its debut in Y 2016 knows its exact price ( featured picture)
Innovation and learnings from the Ferrari F1 team made their way into this LE Ferrari HyperSuper car. That means the 6.3-litre V12 LaFerrari Aperta can hit acceleration rates of a 0-200kph in just 7 secs and can achieve a top speed of over 350kph.
W Motors’ Lykan HyperSport
The 6 anni Dubai-HQ’d W Motors is the Middle East’s 1st developer of HyperSuper cars. This Lykan Hypersport, billed as the world’s 1st Arab supercar, was limited to 7 units.
Each LED headlight on it is encrusted with 220 diamonds and the gear knob is made from sculpted crystal. To add a bit of further glamour, Franck Muller designed a special watch which was presented to each customer of the Lykan HyperSport.
The 3.7-litre flat-6 engine in the HyperSport produces 780hp of power and propels it from o-100kph in just 2.8 secs. Its Top speed of 200mph+. The party piece of this car has to be the 9-in holographic display in the interiors which the car’s occupants can use to control the infotainment system.
