Most Expensive Cars 2008

I decided to start a blog showing the most expensive items in different categories. I started with cars with no particular reason. I believe they are good to start with.

Below are the most expensive cars in 2008.

Bugatti EB Veyron 16.4 Pur Sang $2,000,000
This is the new Bugatti EB Veyron 16.4 Pur Sang, a special edition version of one of the world’s fastest cars, limited to a production run of just five units in total. The now “plain” Veyron sold more in a single day in Dubai upon its release in 2005, where six cars were sold in its first public sale.

Lamborghini Reventon $1,400,000
The V12 engine will hit 650 hp, and the car will undoubtedly make it to every pre-teen desktop background in the world. The instrument cluster looks remarkably similar to that of Knight Rider’s KITT, and the wheels feature non-functional carbon fiber swatches on each of the spokes.

Koenigsegg ccx $695,000
The CCX is the latest iteration of the Koenigsegg CC family. The CCX is in many aspects a new car since it has been re-engineered to comply with the US regulation and market demands. Still, it has been a key issue for the Koenigsegg Team to keep the distinctive and record breaking CC shape. We believe it is important to avoid trends and instead hone the aerodynamic shape of the CC range for the future, only enhancing its unique look and appearance with tighter lines and a more aggressive stance. We also believe in continuity.

SSC Ultimate Aero $675,000
Getting tired of the staid supercars sitting in your garage? Now is your chance to own the Guinness-verified world's fastest car, the SSC Ultimate Aero which was clocked at an average two-way speed of 255.83 mph - besting both the Bugatti Veyron and Koenigsegg CCX. Motorcars of Las Vegas, the sole distributor of the Ultimate Aero, has chassis #SSC-07-004 on its showroom floor ready for its first owner. This is the first one they have had for immediate delivery, and there are only 15 miles on the odometer. The twin-turbo V8 mounted amidships puts out 1183 horsepower and 1094 lb-ft torque. Other features include a full carbon fiber body, navigation system, back-up camera, and a front lift system to clear speed bumps.

Spyker C12 Zagato $650,000
Mad supercar genius Victor Muller introduced the latest from the newly minted F1 constructor Spyker Cars. It's a Zagato-designed rear-drive sportster, powered by VW's 6.0-liter W12 engine, producing 500 hp. Like other of Spyker's vehicles, this one combines supercar with 1930s robber-baron airplane, to create a gestalt from speed, fine leather, Chronoswiss instruments and aeronautics. The C12 gets from zero to 60 in 3.8 seconds and has a top speed that knocks fairly hard on the threshold of 200 mph (193). Nearly $650,000 will buy one, if all of the above is your thing.

Saleen S7 Twin Turbo $589,950
Saleen S7 Twin Turbo mph/kmh speedometer With 750 hp(559kW) and a 0-60mph time of 2.8s, the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is unquestionably a force to be reckoned with. It can go from 0 to 100 mph in 5.9s and from zero to 100 and back to zero in 11.2 seconds. This street ready racecar is capable of well over 200 miles per hour.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren $495,000

The new SLR Roadster blends Formula 1 motor-racing credentials with a fully retractable semi-automatic soft top for a whole new dimension in Gran Turismo Roadsters.

Maybach 62 S $433,000
Maybach, the luxury brand with an illustrious past, re-established just four years ago, is adding a fourth variant to its line-up in the shape of the newly developed 62 S model. The "S" stands for "Special" and draws attention to the fact that the Maybach engineers at the Sindelfingen-based Manufaktur workshops have incorporated a wealth of meticulously developed, special features specified by their highly discerning customers into the new 62 S model.

Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe $412.000
As one would (and should) expect, the cost of entry is substantial. Adding the Phantom Drophead Coupe to one's personal fleet will cost $407,000 plus any additional options. But what an addition it'll make. The car's hand-welded aluminum spaceframe is constructed at a BMW facility in Germany and is wrapped in all-new body panels -- nothing is shared with the big-brother sedan. The suicide doors allow the A-pillar to run uninterrupted to the floor, increasing the body's stiffness. Overall, the convertible's lines are more rounded and smooth, giving it a classically sporting look that still retains the Phantom sedan's imposing presence.

Bentley Brooklands $330.000
The new Bentley Brooklands possesses the most powerful V8 the company has ever produced -- a 530 horsepower, twin-turbocharged 6.75-liter unit that also produces 775 pound-feet of torque. As with the latest Arnage, the V8 engine is mated to a six-speed transmission driving the rear wheels in the classic fashion. Performance thanks to the big powerplant is impressive; standstill to 60mph is dispatched in 5 seconds flat, and propels it to a top speed of 184mph. Optional carbon carbide brakes behind big 20-inch wheels bring the heavy, near-5,900lb mass.
