Most Popular Supercars Driven by Billionaires

Take a minute and think of the most expensive car you can. Now think about the fastest car you know. Is it the same car, or two different ones? It might be hard to imagine because it seems that every supercar company keeps upping their game, trying to outdo each other to secure their spot as having one of the best cars in the world. Bear in mind, limited production cars such as the Aston Martin One-77, Lamborghini Centenario, and Koenigsegg Agera RS have been kept off this list due to the minimal quantity of them on the market. Although this list is not comprehensive, maybe there is a chance that you guessed one of the cars on this list!

1. Porsche 911 GT3 RS

At a glance:

Horsepower: 500
Engine: 4.0-Litre flat-6
0-60: 3.2 seconds
Top speed: 200 mph
Base price:  $175,000

This beautiful piece of German art and engineering made this list not because it’s the fastest, nor is it the most expensive, but is perhaps one of the most recognisable and long-lasting brands in the automotive supercar industry. The GT3 RS boasts a 4.0-Litre six-cylinder engine. With 500 horses galloping in the engine, you can expect to get from 0-60 in about 3.2 seconds! Although its price may seem high, for a billionaire this might fall into the realm of
“practical.”

2. Bugatti Chiron

At a glance:

Horsepower: 1,500
Engine: 8.0-litre V16 quad turbo
0-60: 2.3 seconds
Top speed: 261 mph (limited for safety reasons)
Base price: $2,700,000
Let’s move on to the toys that say “I have a lot of money, and everyone needs to know!” The 2017 Chiron is probably so exotic that it has its own island and walks around in an unbuttoned thin white t-shirt showing off its chiseled abs and six pack for those few lucky enough to see it. Even its predecessor, the Veyron, looks upon this beast with disdain knowing the Chiron is out there doing things it never could.

3. McLaren P1

At a glance:

Horsepower: 903
Engine: 3.8-Litre electric/twin-turbo V8 hybrid
0-60: 2.7 seconds
Top speed: 217 mph
Base price: $1,150,000
Nothing says “I love driving fast and saving the environment at the same time” as a hybrid supercar, and this rear wheel drive monster does it the best! The P1’s two competitors aren’t bad either, but Porsche 918 Spyder and the Ferarri LaFerarri have a bit of catching up to do. Especially considering the redundancy of the Ferarri, not to mention it’s high price point!

4. Hennessey Venom GT

At a glance:

Horsepower: 1,244
Engine: 7.0-Litre V8 twin-turbo
0-60: 2.7 seconds
Top speed: 270 mph (verified)
Base price: $1,200,000
If you’re by chance in the market for a car in the low million-dollar range and aren’t a fan of the hybrids, take a look at this puppy. With a top speed, higher than the Chiron, and a price point and 0-60 similar to the P1, this could be your car. This car even holds a Guinness World Record title! This car has plenty of bark and bite.

5. Lamborghini Aventador S

At a glance: 

Horsepower: 730
Engine: 6.5-Litre V12
0-60: 2.8 seconds
Top speed: 217 mph
Base price: $425,000
No supercar list is complete without a Lamborghini in the ranks. The Italian Lamborghini brand has been around for quite some time, and in that time, they have produced some of the most luxurious cars on the market. The Aventador S comes with all-wheel drive and even rear steering. Not only does this car look mean, but it also sounds mean! Lambo’s have a sound of their own, and this one will certainly make some heads turn.
If you’re someone with one of these sweet rides, or even if you’re not a billionaire yet, but still want to add some style to your current ride, throw on a customised license plate from Absolute Reg you can click here to start designing your very own!

The World’s Most Expensive Cars

Some people love cars. And, other people love working really hard to spend a lot of money on cars. And, still other people have more money than regular people can even imagine, and can afford to drop insane amounts of money on cars. And they do this, regularly. Here are a few of the cars they sometimes choose.

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is one of the most expensive cars ever sold. Only nine of the vehicles were made in 2014 and each had a $4.5 million price tag. The vehicle looks as over-the-top as you might expect including a complete lack of roof. It looks like a race car and is said to be completely street legal. Behind the wheel, you can hit top speed of more than 200 miles per hour.

 

Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron is another of the world’s most expensive cars with a price tag of $1.7 million. This car is not currently in production, but fans can still pick up late model versions if they have the cash reserves to afford it. Most really expensive cars deliver the experience of going really fast and the Bugatti Veyron is no exception with top speeds over 230 miles per hour.

 

Koenigsegg Agera R

The next most expensive car in the world almost looks like the Lamborghini’s step brother. It’s the Koenigsegg Agera R and costs a cool $1.6 million to drive it off the lot. Actually, you likely won’t drive it off the lot and instead it will be built with tremendous attention to detail after your check clear and hand delivered to you likely with a gold and diamond-dusted bow on top. The car hails from Sweden and was imagined to be a real race car for the road.

 

Hennessey Venom GT

And finally, the Hennessey Venom GT round out the top of the ridiculously expensive cars list. A very limited number of these cars are built because a very limited number of people in the world are willing to spend $1.2 million on a car. But, there are about 30 people who are willing and the Hennessey Venom delivers thrill and excitement as promised.
