Being the duPont REGISTRY, we are well versed in the world’s most expensive cars. Throughout the years, we’ve seen some incredible vehicles that have carried equally impressive price tags. Because of our knowledge on the matter, we’ve compiled the 25 most expensive cars in the world (that’s the new price, not what they’ve sold for at auction or during a private sale). The list includes creations for a wide range of automakers, including Ferarri, Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce, Pagani, and many others. As you can see, automakers that make iconic models like the Rolls-Royce Ghost are not afraid to create opulent vehicles that set the bar for ultra-luxury vehicles. Scroll down below to see them for yourself.

1. Rolls-Royce Boat Tail: $28 million

The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is regarded as the costliest car in the world. Coming from Rolls-Royce Coachbuild, it was inspired by everything nautical. It includes Caleidolegno veneer on its “Aft Deck,” wrap-around windscreen and so many other nautical touches. In the rear is an area that opens up to reveal a hosting suite that includes everything you need for an al fresco dining experience. Rolls-Royce Coachbuild also included two BOVET 1822 reversible timepieces that can be used as dashboard clocks. Rolls-Royce also recently debuted the Boat Tail for the first first time at the Concours d-Eleganza Villa d’Este.

2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire: $18+ million

This breathtaking exclusive one-off Bugatti was inspired by the legendary Type 57 Atlantic of Bugatti’s earlier history. Bugatti sought to recreate the sophistication and mysticism of the Atlantic, but most importantly, the legend of the perfect car. With features that echo the Atlantic of old like six tailpipes and a dorsal seam across the middle, La Voiture Noire is unique to its core.

3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta: $17.5 million

The Pagani Zonda is, by itself, a car we know to be epic and historic in the world of supercars. Its completely distinct look, formidable Mercedes-Benz 7.3 liter V-12, and outstanding performance have made it a classic and a legend. That makes a car like the HP Barchetta the perfect way to do it justice. As if the Zonda wasn’t eye-catching enough, the HP Barchetta features rear wheels that are partially covered by a carbon fiber panel, and a roofless (and almost windshield-less) body design, hence the Barchetta name, making it truly deserving of the title of being one of the most expensive cars in the world of all time.

4. Rolls-Royce Sweptail: $13 million

The Sweptail’s defining feature and namesake is the tapered rear end, appropriately evoking a yacht and the sense of pure pleasure and luxury that only a Rolls Royce can offer.  With a glass roof that extends from front to back, and wood and leather decorating nearly every interior surface, the Sweptail is just like a yacht, but maybe even better, hence it is priced like one.

5. Bugatti Centodieci: $9 million

The Bugatti Centodieci is an homage to a modern classic: the EB110. The 200+ mph icon of the 90s, combined with the body of work Bugatti has today can only make for a truly amazing, one-of-a-kind, and inherently expensive car. There will only be 10 of these, which is unfortunate because nostalgia isn’t the only reason the Centodieci is amazing. It improves upon the Chiron, shedding nearly 45 pounds and adding downforce.

6. Bugatti Divo: $5.9 million

As if Bugatti’s offerings weren’t serious enough, the Divo is just about as serious as any of their cars have ever gotten. While Bugattis are known for being cars that reach incredible speed in a straight line, the Bugatti Divo is meant to dominate in the corners, as well. And with an elongated, more aerodynamic body increased downforce, and 1.6 Gs of lateral acceleration, that’s exactly what it does. With Bugatti always being at the forefront of performance, we had no clue that things could take a turn for the better.

7. Pagani Huayra Imola: $5.4 million

The Huayra Imola is a car that is entirely dedicated to speed. Pagani went to the length of even developing a special paint to finish the car in that saved 11 pounds of weight, to the end of achieving a dry weight of just 2,747 pounds. Combine that with 827 horsepower, and you end up with a car that is just about as formidable, unique, and extravagant as anything can get on the road.
