Top 10 American Rides For the Independence Day

in Lux Life by

The second President of the United States, John Adams, one of the founding fathers, had an idea how July 4th should really be celebrated. He said that Independence Day should be marked with parades, shows, sports and games, bells, bonfires and guns, and that it should be present in all corners of the new continent.

Today, we dare to say that he would surely add a few vehicles to his perfect list. Without further ado, let us look at a list of top ten cars ideal for a July 4 drive.

10. Hummer H1

Originally made as a military vehicle, the Hummer is a truck that won the Gulf War. It runs on a 6.5L Detroit Diesel turbocharged V8 engine. Its Chevrolet TH400 transmission is bulletproof and sends power to all four wheels. This beast of a truck can take on any terrain, as the air pressure in each tire is controlled independently.

9. Ford Mustang

One of the legendary muscle cars, Ford’s famous model, is a perfect American car. The 2019 Bullitt version is a great option for undercover cops if you ask us. We also recommend the Boss 302 Laguna Seca. Anyway, there is a wide array of Mustangs to choose from, so take your time.

8. Jeep Wrangler

Developed in WW2 and originally used for transporting troops in combat, its help in winning the war is indisputable. The enthusiasm of Americans for Jeeps has not stopped ever since, as you can see a huge number of these machines all over the country.

7. Dodge/SRT Viper

Hitting the streets for the first time in 1992, the Viper is a modern American supercar. It is a collaboration between Lee Iaccoca and Carroll Shelby. Originally, Viper had no roof or windows, nor an automatic transmission. Times have changed, and the Fiat-Chrysler company had different priorities, and they stopped manufacturing the famous snake in 2017. Nevertheless, there are still a lot of Vipers to choose from, so hurry up. Their price will surely surge now that no new versions are scheduled to appear!

6. Ford GT

With an idea of winning the famed 24 hours of Le Mans, Ford came up with the GT. In 1967, they managed to take home the trophy. Again, in 2017, they wanted another victory, and their legendary racing supercar delivered again.

5. Chevrolet Corvette

Source:cnet.com

The Z06 Corvette made everyone think that it would be the top dog for years to come. However, Chevrolet came up with the Corvette ZR1, a 755 horsepower beast of a car. You can either have it as a convertible, or a Targa top coupe, which is a semi-convertible. In addition, you can also choose between a 7-speed manual and an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The ZR1 has a top speed of 212 mph, that engine generates 715 lb-ft of torque, and it needs 13 radiators to keep everything running smoothly.

4. SRT Hellcat or Demon

Source:cnet.com

Already a collectible, there were only 300 Dodge Demons manufactured. The Challenger model accomplishes consistent 9-second mark times in the quarter-mile drag race thanks to its 840 horsepower engine. This is the first production car that NHRA banned. The new 2019 models of the Charger and the Challenger Hellcats come with a variety of upgrades, so make sure you check that out.

3. Ford Raptor

Source:autoexpress.co.uk

The legendary F-150 is an amazing truck. The same engine as the Ford GT, a twin-turbo V6, slightly detuned, powers this 4-wheeler. Feel free to go and enjoy any terrain with this bad boy, it is not afraid of anything. With locking differentials and a remote reservoir suspension by Fox, no surface stands a chance against the Raptor.

2. Chevrolet Camaro

Source:motor1.com

Arguably the best muscle car series ever, the Camaro is the 15th fastest car ever to do a lap at the famously dangerous Nurburgring track in Germany. It accomplished this in the 7:16.04 and worth mentioning is the fact that all cars which did it faster, are supercars that cost several times more, than the ZL1 1LE edition of the Camaro.

1. Cadillac CTS-V

Source:hennesseyperformance.com

This one is surely a surprise, especially on the top spot, right? Some utter genius at the Lansing Grand River plant decided one day that it would be a great idea to put a Corvette Z06 engine into the CTS, while the suspension was perfected at the ‘Ring. It was a good idea as it turns out. It has an engine packed with 650 horsepower similar to the ones found in the Corvette Z06, and the Camaro ZL1. In addition to that, it is equipped with a comfortable magnetic suspension and a great deal of legroom. It is a Cadillac after all. If this power is just too much for you, the company also offers CTS Vsport with a twin-turbo V6 engine from the ATS-V. This one has “only” 420 horsepower and does 24 miles per gallon.

We hope you have fun this July 4. Remember to drive responsibly. Although it sounds like an amazing time, cars, various beverages, and fireworks do not mix well. Keep that paint job away from the fire, and enjoy Independence Day!

With the wealth that this man has, security comes as one of the most important things when choosing a car. While in Oval Office he might not be often riding in this beast on wheels, we are sure that he often used it when going on meetings. Mercedes S600 packs 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces 500 hp and 523 lb-ft of torque that is enough for this machine to race from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Have in mind that this vehicle offers protection against small explosive devices and small firearms, plus it has a top of the line alarm system and self-sealing gas tank. It can be easily called fortress on wheels.

15. 1956 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER CLOUD

When you are filthy rich, you can ask any carmaker, even Rolls Royce, to create a unique car for you. Reports suggest that one of the first models that Trump owned was the 1956 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud and he approached RR with a request for them to build a new one identical to the original vehicle he had. This way, he is sure that this is unique and only he has it.

14. 2015 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM

Source:worldautoevolution.com

If you need ultimate luxury, Rolls Royce is the way to go. It is clear that POTUS loves this brand and his Phantom comes with a 6.75-liter V12 engine capable of pumping out 453 hp. Paired with eight-speed transmission this 6.000 pounds heavy limousine can hit 60 mph in under 6.0 seconds which is a great result for a 20 feet long vehicle. Base price is set to $500,000, but it easily goes higher with a few added options.

13. 24-KARAT GOLD ORANGE COUNTY CHOPPER

Source:fastbeast.org

We are not sure if Trump has ever driven the Orange County Chopper 24-Karat Gold masterpiece, but what we do know is that he loves motorcycles. Prices of these custom choppers can easily become sky high and knowing that this one carries a lot of gold, it is hard to find a better investment.

12. 2016 CADILLAC ESCALADE

Source:autolatest.com

If you are not counting busses and other similar vehicles, it is hard to find anything that can match Cadillac Escalade’s size. This model owes its popularity to the fact that many famous people own one of these spacious and elegant SUVs. Under the hood, we have 6.2-liter V8 that pumps out impressive 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, it is always a good thing to have an American made vehicle like this one.

11. 2003 MERCEDES-BENZ SLR MCLAREN

Source:500sec.com

Since the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren was built in only 370 examples, it became a perfect choice for those that want something unique and have a deep pocket. When a vehicle comes with both Mercedes and McLaren badges, it is clear that we are getting ultimate luxury in combination with sportiness. With 617 hp and 575 lb-ft. of torque, it isn’t anything strange that it was priced at $450,000.

10. Tesla Roadster

Source:carsoid

Most vehicles on the list so far were quite demanding in terms of gasoline, but the Tesla Roadster is a complete opposite of that. This is a Lotus Elise based electric vehicle that was made by Elon Musk’s Tesla Company from the US. When launched, it was able to offer supercar acceleration thanks to its powerful electric motors.

9. Mercedes-Maybach S600

It seems that Rolls Royce and Mercedes are among the favorite cars of POTUS, and another luxury limo in his garage is the Mercedes Maybach S600. This vehicle brings all the comfort one need and under its hood is the V12 unit with 6.0-liter displacement and twin-turbo system that churns out 523 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque.

8. Cadillac Presidential Limo “The Beast”

Becoming president of the US has many benefits, and one of those is that you get to ride in Cadillac Presidential Limo or “The Beast” how they call it. This car brings the highest level of luxury in combination with maximum security. It has been reported that the current limo will be soon replaced with a new one and we are sure that it will offer an even higher level of luxury and protection.

7. 1993 Cadillac Allante

Source:bloomberg.com

You might wonder how come the ’93 Allante ended up in the car collection of Donald Trump. This model was used as the pace car for the 76th Indy 500 race, and it packs a 4.6-liter Northstar engine that produces 295 hp. It is clear that this vehicle was more about design and not the speed. What we can notice is the clear influence of Pininfarina as it was produced in Italy. This might be one of the reasons why it is a part of Trump’s collection.

6. 2011 CHEVY CAMARO INDY 500 PACE CAR

Source:indystar.com

Another piece of Americana in the garage of this billionaire is a replica of 1969 Indianapolis 500 pace car. It was planned for Trump to drive the pace car at the 100th Indianapolis 500, but unfortunately, he couldn’t make it because of his business ventures. He was replaced by AJ Foyt, but POTUS didn’t miss the opportunity to buy one of the 500 replicas. One thing that was changed compared to the original car is the fact that the new one packs 6.2-liter V8 capable of delivering 426 hp, making it significantly more powerful than the original.

Not all cars that Trump owned are still in his possession, he decided to sell a few of his vehicles, and those are…

5. 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT

Source:autoevolution.com

Today we have a few more choices when it comes to supercars, but in the late ’90s, there were only a few and the 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT was definitely one of the best options for anyone who wanted to have a supercar. Trump opted for the LeMans Blue roadster and he, later on, sold it. After he won the elections, this car emerged again as it was offered for $299,000.

4. 2007 Ferrari F430

Source:forbes.com

It is possible that Trump had a midlife crisis as he owned another supercar. It was the Ferrari F430, he sold it and got few more German cars.

When you are a wealthy businessman, and you appreciate your time, you want to travel in style and as quick as possible. That is one of the reasons why Mr. Trump decided to add a few flying machines to his collection, and we will take a look at those also.

3. Boeing 757

Source:aviationcv.com

The main idea of owning a jet is to be able to travel anywhere without much airport hassle. This plane was owned by Paul Allen who co-founded Microsoft and was bought by Trump in 2011. He made it quite luxurious with adding leather seats and even 24-karat gold seat-belt buckles. It can transport up to 43 passengers that will be able to enjoy the luxurious interior that provides many gold-trimmed details. This jet also has two bedrooms and TVs all over the place.

2. Cessna Citation X

Source:foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com

Another plane in Trump’s collection is the Cessna Citation X. While this one can carry “only” 12 passengers, it is also luxurious and filled with gold. Is this the one for shorter trips or something like that?

1. Sikorsky S-76 Helicopter

Sometimes it is much easier to take your chopper and fly anywhere you want. Well, most people don’t know that feeling, but for POTUS it is a normal thing. He decided to spend about $7 million on Sikorsky S-76 Helicopter.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Car Collection (BONUS Terminator bike scenes)

in Lux Life by

The rich career of Arnold Schwarzenegger as an actor allowed him to earn a lot, and he decided to spend a portion of his wealth on cars and various vehicles. If you didn’t live under the rock for the last 40 years, you definitely know who this guy is. Arni was the main star of Terminator franchise and was involved in so many great and epic Hollywood releases.

Almost all the roles that he landed came thanks to his muscles as he was one of the biggest guys in the business. Schwarzenegger is not only an actor, before becoming a famous Hollywood star he was a professional bodybuilder and he managed to take a total of seven wins at Mr. Olympia. Arnold is still active in movie making, but since he is 70, he slowed down. We could see him in the role of a politician as he was Governor of California in two terms from 2003 to 2011.

Let’s take a look at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s car collection. One thing that we want to note is the fact that muscle guy like him has ultra-luxury models but also real muscle cars and vehicles that are considered quite manly. Those are some that go best with his character of a Hollywood tough guy.

10. HUMMER H1

Source:carsoid.com

If you want to show your manhood with a car, it is pretty hard to beat Hummer H1. It might look silly for a nonmuscle guy to drive one of these, but in this case, it seems like it was built for Arni. We always wondered who was the inspiration for Ranier Wolfcastle character from The Simpsons.

9. DODGE CHALLENGER SRT

Source:zimbio

The Austrian native is a real Terminator, at least on the screen, and if you are looking for a muscle car that would fit that machine well, you don’t need to go any further than the Dodge Challenger SRT that he was driving. He was spotted on multiple occasions driving this one.

8. MERCEDES-BENZ SLS AMG

Source:dailymail.co.uk

It is clear that Arnold Schwarzenegger didn’t forget Europe and one of the cars on the list is the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. We are sure that this German vehicle reminds him of his home and that is certainly one of the reasons to buy this beauty. With 6.3 liter V8 under the hood, this beast delivers 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque which is more than enough for it to provide supercar performances.

7. PORSCHE 911 TURBO

Source:automix.cars.cz

Another European ride in the collection of Arnold Schwarzenegger is the Porsche 911 Turbo. Red interior goes very well with the gray exterior, and it suits the famous actor perfectly.

6. EX-MILITARY DODGE M37

Source:thrillist.com

Some of the best roles in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s resume were military related, and we can easily imagine this man driving around in various vehicles that are used by the military. A similar case is with the Ex-Military Dodge M37, and we need to say that this is a truck that you will rarely find in garages of famous people.

5. EXCALIBUR

Source:pinterest

The Excalibur is a proof that Arni has some classy vehicles in his collection and on top of that he enjoys driving it. We are among many that didn’t even hear about this brand, and that isn’t anything strange as it isn’t all that famous.

4. HUMMER H1

Source:carsoid.com

It is already clear that Arnold Schwarzenegger has a lot of money and many great vehicles in his garage. He decided to get another Hummer H1, but this one comes with a Terminator written right above the wheel clearly indicating who is behind the wheel.

3. M47 PATTON TANK

Source:collider.com

M47 Patton Tank, or any other tank for that matter, is a rare sight in the luxury collections of Hollywood stars, but it is clear that Arni is slightly different. This tank was created for Korean War, and Schwarzenegger, later on, bought one that he used to crush cars for charity. Lots of fun, we are sure about that.

2. BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GTC

Source:elhamady.blogspot.com

When you think about luxury cars you definitely think about Bently as one of the best brands on the market in that segment. When former Mr. Olympia wants to ride in ultimate luxury, he opts for the Bentley Continental GTC.

1. UNIMOG

Another massive vehicle in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s garage is the Unimog that carries Mercedes badge on the grille. You might wonder why he needs this machine in his collection, well, it is simple, why not.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Car Collection – Infiniti, Pagani, Acura, Honda (BONUS YACHT)

in Lux Life by

As the founder and one of the owners of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg is extremely rich. It is pretty hard to find anyone that doesn’t know who this guy is, we are sure that about 2 billion people that are using social network he made are well aware who he is.

Current estimations say that his net worth is about $72 Billion, which is incredible for anyone, let alone for a 27 years old tech genius. With the amount of money he has many would expect to see him spending a decent portion of his wealth on various luxury items. But the story with this man is slightly different.

You will not see him visiting elite restaurants, he buys clothes available to pretty much all people and has only a few vehicles in his garage. This is quite strange as we know that celebrities and rich people love to spend their fortune on supercars and have multi-million dollar collections. Here is the list of cars that are owned by Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook.

5. Honda Fit

Source:cheapcarscanada.com

Honda Fit is not a car you would expect to see in billionaire garage, but Mark has one. This vehicle is offered with a small four-cylinder engine that produces 117 hp and is paired with a five-speed manual transmission. This is enough for a max speed of 118 mph and for most rich people it would be embarrassing to drive one of these, but not for Facebook CEO.

Michael Jackson’s Car Collection

in Lux Life by

There is no doubt that Michael Jackson was the most influential name in the music industry, and even after his death in 2009, he remains one of the biggest stars. If we compared him with other stars in the industry, it would be easy to conclude that he was different and unique. This also stands for his choice of cars and vehicles that he owned.

During his fruitful career, he managed to launch many top chart hits which allowed him to amass huge wealth. The thing is, he didn’t spend his money on things like other rich people, and that was also notable with vehicles that he bought. Here is the Michael Jackson’s car collection.

8. 1990 Rolls Royce Silver Spur

Source:mercedesblog.com

Back in the days, if you wanted to ride in perfect comfort, you would get one of these limousines. The 1990 Rolls Royce Silver Spur is a perfect for a star like Michael Jackson as it offers a combination of white leather and black fabric. Privacy is guaranteed with tinted windows and white curtains while you have a full-service bar inside. Under the hood is the 6.75-liter V8 that is paired with a four-speed automatic transmission.

7. 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood

Source:fanpop.com

This Fleetwood has a history as it is the car that was used for the filming of Driving Miss Daisy. Under the hood is the 331 CID V8 engine that uses overhead valve design and offers 230 hp. With a wheelbase of 133 inches, it provides plenty of space.

6. 1997 Neoplan Touring Bus

When you are often on the road like Michael Jackson was, you want to have all the luxury and comfort while traveling. He purchased Neoplan Touring Bus and equipped it with all he needs; it offers individual seats and booths. The carpet comes with embroidered king’s crown, and this bus was used for HIStory World Tour. One of the most impressive things here is that it had a full-size bathroom and gold, porcelain and granite were some of the materials used to equip it.

5. 1988 GMC Jimmy High Sierra Classic

Source:autoevolution.com

We have already said that there will be a few strange vehicles in this collection and one of those certainly is the 1988 GMC Jimmy High Sierra Classic. We are not sure why did he buy this firetruck and if he ever drove it.

4. 1988 Lincoln Town Car

Source:autoevolution.com

Another limo in the collection is the 1988 Lincoln Town Car, but this one comes pretty much standard with fabric interior in combination with gray leather. Under the hood is the standard 5.0-liter engine allowing it to easily cruise both in town and on the highway.

3. 1993 Ford Econoline

Source:autoevolution.com

This 1993 Ford Econoline was fully customized, and it came with TV, game console, leather seats and similar. One thing to note is the fact that the game console pretty much belongs to a museum today.

2. 2001 Harley Touring bike in police trim

Source:autoevolution.com

Here is yet another mysterious vehicle in the collection, this time it is a police-themed bike. Michael Jackson never expressed his love towards two-wheelers, and on top of that, this one comes in police colors. It brings everything a standard law enforcement bike would offer, lights and sirens included.

1. 1909 Detamble Model B Roadster Replica

Among all these strange but interesting models is the 1909 Detamble Model B Roadster Replica. If it weren’t a replica it would be worth tons of money, it might be one of the most expensive vehicles in the collection.

What are the 10 most expensive cars in the world currently?

in Lux Life by

Have you ever wondered what are some of the most expensive cars in the world, who drives them and why are they so expensive in the first place? Here is a list of 10 most expensive four-wheelers. From a $2.7 million Bugatti Chiron to the staggering $13 million Rolls Royce Sweptail, they are often owned by the celebrities and billionaires all around the world. Recognized worldwide, these manufacturers sell their precious wonders to only a handful of extremely rich customers who can buy them without any trouble whatsoever.

These cars are real pieces of art on their own. They tend to remain as valuable after decades had passed, even gaining value. Many models of the top tier makers are built and meant for only a handful of collectors. Most of these are reserved and sold before even being made. All of the entrants are far from the reach of the regular public. Although difficult to assemble, a list like this does keep and attract attention. Prices for some of these vehicles are extremely high, so wonder away at our list of most expensive luxury cars currently existing in 2018.

10. Bugatti Chiron – $ 2.7 million

Source:industryleadersmagazine.com

After the legendary Veyron model, Bugatti had to come up with something even better, if that is even possible. The price is expected to reach $3 million before it actually comes out. It is the vision of the former head of VW, Ferdinand Piech, who always demanded only the fastest cars to be produced by Bugatti. Chiron brings the highest level of luxury and is dubbed as the most exclusive super sports car, as well as the most powerful.

It is a worthy successor, to say the least. Reaching the top speed of 268 mph, it is powered by an 8.0-liter quad turbo W-16 engine, producing 1500 horsepower. It is 300 more than the fastest Veyron model, the Super Sport. If the aforementioned figure is not enough, the actual top speed has yet to be determined. The road limitation, however, is 261 mph.

9. Pagani Huayra BC – $2.8 million

Source:albawaba.com

A successor to the regular Pagani Huayara, the BC model, is the most expensive vehicle Pagani has ever manufactured. Bearing the initials of Benny Caiola, a famous Italian investor and a huge car enthusiast, it is a truly special car for those who like details. Caiola, who owns a fleet of Ferraris, is also a close personal friend of the man behind the company, Horacio Pagani.

Pagani’s newest design saw the light of day at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016. Compared to the older Huayra, it has new side tracks, a wider rear track, and many awesome new aero features. It is powered by the 6.0-liter V-12 bi-turbo engine, developed by AMG that pumps out 790 hp and 811 lb-ft torque. A tripod drive shaft leveraging system sends this huge amount of power to the rear wheels through a 7-speed Xtrac transmission. In addition, the standard Huayra’s gear shifting time of 150 milliseconds is reduced to 75 milliseconds.

Weighing 1,218 kg, or 2,685 pounds, the new Huayra BC model is much lighter than its predecessor due to the usage of materials like carbon fiber.

8. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio – $3 million

Source:dailyguideafrica.com

This supercar was initially offered only as a concept, back in 2013. Bearing the name of the famous Italian design house, it serves as a memory to the son of the founder of Pininfarina, who sadly passed away. As one of the most expensive Ferraris ever, only six units of this model were manufactured. The famous Ferrari 458 Spider served as a starting point.

Each of the six cars is handmade, and it comes with an all carbon fiber frame. Among the things that could attract a lot of attention certainly is the fact that this two-seater comes as an open-air luxury supercar. Don’t mistake this one for a Spider as it does not possess a roof at all, nor does it have a windshield and the side mirrors. This results in it being 330 pounds lighter than its predecessor. A 4.5-liter F136F V-8 engine powers the Pininfarina. With 562 horsepower at the rear wheels, it is quicker than the previous model. The marvelous interior has a lot to offer as well. A very unusual detail are the headrests, shaped aerodynamically, which are directly built into the roll cage that protects the driver and passenger.

An unorthodox thing about the owners of the six vehicles is the fact that they were actually chosen by the company. This makes the Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio one of the rarest ever, even among the rare cars with the invite-only policy.

7. Aston Martin Valkyrie – $3.2 million

Source:forbes.com

The price of this beauty is estimated by the experts on the matter, as it has not been officially declared as of yet. The new president of the company, Andy Palmer, was personally involved in the development of the vehicle. It is supposed to be a worthy successor of the Aston Martin Red Bull AM-RB 001.

There is an interesting story about the initial idea for this car. It tells of drink between Christian Horner, and Adrian Newey, an expert in charge of the aerodynamics of Red Bull’s award-winning, super expensive sports cars in the Formula 1 world. He thought of a special plan for this marvelous speedster, so it would push the air in front using the front segments of the body. The result of this is enough downforce so it does not need additional wings on the car.

It is powered by a naturally aspirated V-12 6.5-liter engine, specially developed for the Cosworth. It pumps out nearly 1,000 horsepower and has a 1:1 power to weight ratio. The Croatian based company Rimac, a fellow super sport car manufacturer, produces a hybrid battery system used in the car. Currently, Aston Martin has plans to make 150 units, which are expected to start arriving at customer’s doorsteps from 2019. Other than these 150 units, 25 more are planned. These will be strictly for racing, and their, probably staggering price, is not yet known. It will surely surpass the $3.2 million mark.

6. Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Vivere – $3.4 million

Source:rankmylist.com

The previously mentioned Bugatti Veyron is already a legend among cars. Its Mansory Vivere edition is, however, the best among the best. It has been modified and upgraded four times since the initial model was launched in 2005.

The German monster has improvements like the all carbon-fiber body, with a brand new spoiler package. It provides a smart cabin, bigger side scoops, new diffusers, new front grille, as well as a shortened hood. It has a plethora of LED lights all around, both the front and the backlights, as well as the beautiful cockpit.

Its heart is the 8.0-liter W16 engine which produces 1200 horsepower and 1106 pound-feet of torque. The original model, which was named the Car of the Decade (2000-2009), could reach the top speed of 253 mph. Appealing details for the esthetic enthusiasts are the important historical markers, like the Targa Florio race, which are laser printed in the carbon fiber interior and exterior.

5. Lykan Hypersport – $3.4 million

Source:motori.com

If we take into account that the headlights of this car are made of 240 pieces of 15-carat diamonds it should not make this price too difficult to understand. If this is not enough, the LED blades have 420 more of these diamonds. That is some serious bling. All of these expensive gems are, of course, completely customizable.

To keep the interesting facts about this supercar coming, Abu Dhabi police picked it as a patrol duty car. Good luck trying to escape them! It was also used in the super popular movie “Furious 7,” which is, as you probably know about high-speed chases featuring some heavily upgraded supercars. Add to this the Batmobile-like look straight out of a sci-fi movie and it really appears as impenetrable and indestructible.

Built by a Lebanon based W Motors manufacturer, it is the first supercar of Arab origin, and it can run with the best of them. The mid-rear mounted twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six boxer made sure of that. It produces a 780 hp and an impressive 708 pound-feet of torque, that is sent to the rear wheels. It reaches 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds, and its top speed is a modest 240 mph. Fit for the characters of the popular movie franchise.

4. McLaren P1 LM – $3.6 million

Source:fantasticwheels.blogspot.com

Because its cousin, the P1 GTR is not road legal, the LM serves as a street-legal version of the legendary beast. Although not a production car, it was upgraded and modified by Lanzante, a British firm who purchased the original P1 by McLaren. They made the purchase keeping in mind a select special group of enthusiasts and buyers coming from USA, UAE, Japan and the UK.

This version of the car shares many similarities with the original P1 GTR model, as well as the legend that is the McLaren F1 road car. An example of this is the engine, a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 with, you read that right, gold plating around it. It weighs 60 kg, or 132 pounds, less than the GTR, making it more nimble around the track. It has an upgraded rear wing, and a beautiful front splitter join with the dive planes. This change generates a 40% increase in downforce, compared to the P1 GTR.

It can produce a staggering 1,000 horsepower on the track, combine that with the masterfully designed aerodynamics and you are getting one awesome machine. All of the five cars that were made are sold. Those are some lucky customers.

3. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster – $4.5 million

My god, what an absolutely unreal design. Nevertheless, we have come to expect that from the legendary manufacturer. The name “Veneno” means poison in Spanish, appropriate for something as deadly as this body. Marking the company’s 50th anniversary, this alien monster has few to go neck and neck with. The powerful 6.5-liter V12 engine with a seven-speed single clutch ISR transmission can spin at 8,400 rpm. This powerplant produces a roaring 740 horsepower and 507 pound-feet of torque. The result? A 60 mph in only 2.9 seconds!

The LP700-4 model of the famous Aventador inspires the Transformers-looking beauty. Of course, the material of choice is carbon fiber. It only weighs 3,285 pounds, and it employs an all-wheel-drive system.

One of these was resold for, wait for it, $11 million, making it one of the most expensive cars in the world. Only nine have been made, however, only three were available to customers at first. The race to get a vehicle like this was crazy, and the remaining ones vanished pretty quickly. It should not surprise anyone, because who would not want to own something that looks as good as this.

2. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – $4.8 million

Trevita, meaning “three whites,” is the most expensive street-legal hypercar in the world, as it is covered with real diamonds. The Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave is the name of the carbon fibers, which are coated with diamond dust. This finish makes the car shine with a silvery white color, and makes it stand out even among the best of the competition. Its unique design can be seen throughout, and many consider it perfect.

Beneath all that bling is an absolute beast of a 4.8-liter dual-supercharged V8 engine. Its total horsepower output is 1,004, with 797 pound-feet of torque. Pretty good for a light cruise, wouldn’t you say? In addition, its beautiful rear wing is unique. Some of its other features include ABS powered carbon ceramic brakes, airbags, Inconel exhaust system, an awesome infotainment system, a paddle-shifter, tires monitoring systems, hydraulic system, and a chronometer instrument cluster. You know, all of the good stuff.

Only three units of this piece of art were planned, before the company actually settling for only two. The reason for this is the extremely complicated, time-consuming and difficult manufacturing process of the diamond dust coated carbon fiber.

1. Sweptail by Rolls Royce – $13 million

Now do not faint over that price, ladies and gentlemen, fellow car enthusiasts. This one is truly special. First of all, it is off the market, because it was a one-off model, ordered by a special customer whose name was not made public, making this one of, if not the most exclusive cars ever made.

It comes with a completely custom body, which reminds of the royal carriages of old. Our guess is that it was probably modeled on the ultra-popular and famous Rolls Royce Wraith. Surprisingly for its size, it only seats two people. A fully panoramic sunroof is reminiscent of luxury yachts, which was also a special wish of the mysterious customer. We must admit they know how to enjoy life.

Really unique and unorthodox detail of the interior is the hidden cases for holding laptops behind each door. The interior is also fully handcrafted with leather and wood. Weirdly, nothing else that special is present in the most expensive car in the world. It does look like a yacht from the back and is based on the 20s and 30s models. One thing about the customer that is not known is that he, or she, happens to be a collector of private planes, as well as super-yachts. This is one truly special individual, with a high sense of taste and design.
