Top 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World – 2018

A car is not just a mode of conveyance, but also a piece of art cherished, often decades after its production. Big names like Lamborghini, Aston Martin and of course, Rolls Royce often come at very high prices and are only meant for rich collectors as many of them are often sold out before they reach the public. While most of the cars listed here are wildly out of the reach for most, it is a sheer pleasure just to look at them. However, it is often difficult to prepare such a list because the manufacturers often keep the price under the wraps and preserve them for potential customers only. And it so happens that when they end up in auctions, their prices are set way above the original. So here you go with the most expensive luxury cars of 2018 existing at present. Have fun reading!

Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar

The Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing collaboration once affectionately referred to as AM RB 001 finally has a name and a few more details associated with it. The Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar has been described as everything from a street-legal F1 car to the “most ambitious supercar project since the McLaren F1” for good reason. It’s reportedly powered by a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that, when combined with its next level aerodynamics and lightweight construction, will develop 1,130 horsepower. The car isn’t done yet, but Aston Martin insists that there will be some version of it that will be street legal everywhere it’s sold. It’s pure lunacy on wheels that, unfortunately, most of us will never have the luxury of unleashing on the pavement, because of its rumored $2.5mil+ cost. And such a price makes it one of the most expensive cars in the world. Until they finish this rocket ship we’ll just have to ogle the F1-inspired interior and gorgeous lines while waiting for its inevitable appearance on The Grand Tour.

The 37-Foot Aston Martin AM37 Powerboat Makes Its World Debut In Monaco

The 37-foot Aston Martin “AM37” powerboat made its world debut at the Monaco Yacht Show, marking the luxury British brand’s entry into the nautical world. The new day-cruiser is offered in two versions with the AM37’s expected to reach speeds of 50 knots. It arrives as the the result of two years of research and development, challenging the status quo of the nautical world and combining innovative technology and bespoke craftsmanship. The powerboat was a true team effort, bringing in the most experienced Aston Martin designers to style and create a truly unique product. The British-automaker’s master craftsmen who worked on cars such as ‘one-77′; “Vulcan”; and the new “DB11”, provided their automotive experience, which was reinterpreted onto the boat with outstanding results. The yacht is a day cruiser that can be transformed into an overnight berth by transforming the table into a comfortable bed. Tthe cabin is well appointed with mood lighting and air-conditioning. with a refrigerator, microwave oven and coffee machine–and a lavatory on board, absolute comfort is guaranteed. Crafted from the finest leathers, elegantly laid out rear seating is available for up to eight people. The exterior of “AM37” features dynamic proportions in a design that is simple, yet immaculately executed. The boat is set apart by the attention to detail in every element of its design. The wraparound windscreen has been created from a single piece of sculpted glass fluidly draped over the foredeck. With extreme double curvature it sets a new industry standard. Sliding deck technology allows owners to cover the cockpit of the boat completely at the touch of a button. The three lightweight carbon panels, operated by the ‘AM37′ key, fold under the aft deck when the cockpit is uncovered. An electro-hydraulic carbon fibre bimini top is stowed under the engine hatch when not in use and, extending from the aft deck, a swim platform allows for easy access to the water. At the helm, a carbon fibre dashboard echoes styling elements from aston martin’s most advanced sports cars. It includes fine leather with functional features, such as the steering wheel, throttle handles and joystick in polished metals. The boat’s navigation, control monitor and entertainment systems are all integrated, with advanced multimedia functions. The 37-foot model is available in two versions–the “AM37” with an estimated top speed of 45 knots and a choice of two 370 hp mercury diesel or two 430 hp mercury petrol engines. And the powerboats version with an estimated 50 knots derived from its twin 520 hp mercury petrol engines.

Race-Inspired Aston Martin Vantage GT8

All Aston Martin road cars posses some sporting DNA from their countless race wins in GT3 and GT4 categories, but the luxury brand’s “Vantage GT8” draws directly from that knowledge and passion to deliver something altogether more overt in looks and ability. Heavily influenced by the 2016 Aston Martin “V8 vantage GTE” race car, the latest model is the lightest and most powerful “V8 Vantage”, with a dramatically sculpted carbon fibre bodywork shaped by race-bred aerodynamics. Powered by a 4.7 litre V8 with a choice of either a six-speed manual or seven-speed “sportshift” paddle shift transmission, the car is tuned for track-focused agility. Wide-bodied, the “V8 Vantage GTE” features extensive use of carbon fiber with the front splitter, front and rear bumpers, fenders, side sills and rear diffuser all fashioned from the lightweight material. “Road cars are our business, but racing is the beating heart of Aston Martin,” explains CEO dr. Andy Palmer. “The Vantage GT8 expresses that combination perfectly: an authentic and unashamedly extreme road car that draws directly from our le mans racing programme to amplify the inherent dynamism that has long made the vantage such a fine sports car. Beautifully engineered and set-up to be equally at home on a fabulous road or a demanding race track, the vantage GT8 is a driver’s car in the truest sense of the word.’

Aston Martin DB7 to DB4 Zagato Conversion by Evanta Motor Company

After initially unveiling the DB4 GT at the 1960 London Motor Show, Aston Martin built 19 examples through 1963. In 1991 an additional four examples were built, followed by another pair in 2000. British coachbuilder Evanta Motor Company took a DB7 – of which Aston produced some 7,000 examples in its ten-year production run – and rebodied it to look like a classic Zagato. This particular conversion is based on the DB7 V12 Vantage model, with an earlier version of the same 6.0-liter V12 still employed in the latest Astons producing 420 horsepower. That’s considerably more than the 314 hp offered by the 3.7-liter straight six in the original DB4 GT, and it is mated to an automatic gearbox and all the modern accoutrements, from air conditioning to air bags. The blueish-silver bodywork hides a red leather interior complete with full rollcage and retrofitted dashboard and seats. While all the details surely didn’t come cheap, you can bet it cost less for Evanta to create than an original DB4 GT – or for that matter, a 2002 DB7 Zagato.

Aston Martin CC100 Speedster Concept

British automaker Aston Martin is celebrating its centenary by introducing the CC100 Speedster concept. Looking back to the DBR1 for styling influence, the naturally aspirated 6.0-litre v12-powered concept car made its world debut by completing a lap of the famous Nordschleife, at Germany’s 24 hours of Nürburgring race. The body and interior are crafted entirely from carbon fibre – designed and constructed in fewer than six months at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon. Paired to a six-speed hydraulically actuated automated sequential manual transmission with column-mounted paddle shifts, the CC100 reaches 0-100 km/h ( 62mph ) in 4.0 seconds, with a top speed of 291 km/h (180 mph).
