Checkout the most expensive fastest cars on the planet. Think you have what it takes to control the horsepower let alone the payments and maintenance that comes with owning one of these sports cars? Take a look all 10 and be sure to comment below.
The High Cost for Speed
Top Speed: 217 MPH
This yellow McLaren reminds me of a transformer and may cost about the same to build a working prototype.
Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
Top Speed: 217 MPH
They say that red cars get stopped more often by police. Apparently that’s an urban legend; however, if you’re driving any color of a Lambo, I’m sure the police will take notice. For the record, the Subaru WRX #1 receives the most speeding tickets followed by the Pontiac GTO as explained by NBC News. Who know?
Koenigsegg Agera R
Top Speed: 260 MPH
If you want speed, any one of the top ten from the video above will do; they all can exceed 200 mph. For the very fastest, there are two close choices: the Hennessey Venom GT clocked at 270 mph and 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and the Bugattti Veyron Super Sport tested at 268 mph with 0-60 in 2.4 seconds.
After paying the initial purchase price, the buyer can expect to dish out an additional $300,000 in annual maintenance. Annual inspections, for instance, average $20,000 and insurance can run as high as $2500 a month. Tires cost $10,000 to $20,000 each. Finally, fill up the gas tank at $120 but remember that speed guzzles fuel.
Many other factors contribute to the high overall cost of these automobiles. Just a few vehicles are made each year. For example, only four Lamborghinis were available for purchase in 2014. That means the distinctive characteristics and formidable complexities of the vehicle designs and extreme technology demand specialized manufacturing equipment, parts, tools, materials and highly-trained technicians. Highest quality materials are critical not only for elegant appearance but also for safety. Those expensive tires, for instance, must endure wear and tear of high speeds. Don’t forget, either, those specially-trained technicians for maintenance and repair drive up the labor costs.
Yes, all very pricey, but if you want the best-of-the-best and you can afford it–does it matter?
