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!

The Rarest Ferrari Ever Made Headed To Auction

RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction on August 18-19 of this year includes a chance to own one of the rarest Ferraris ever made – the 1950 Ferrari 166 MM/212 Export “Uovo” by Fontana. In the early history of Ferrari, late ’40s and early ’50s, some of their most important customers were the four Marzotto brothers (Vittorio, Giannino, Paolo and Umberto) who were all considerably talented racing drivers that plied their family fortune from the textile industry to racing pursuits. This particular Ferrari, the Uovo (which means “egg” in Italian), was created after an accident at the Mille Miglia when the Marzotto brothers wanted to improve the overall performance and aerodynamics with a streamlined body that would result in a design like no other. Visually, the Uovo is astonishing. The outrageous bodylines are thanks to the vision of sculptor Franco Reggiani and coachbuilder Carrozzeria Fontana. The car was created explicitly for use in competition, and to this end was designed with lightness and aerodynamics in mind. After Reggiani was finished, the curvaceous body and unique Duralumin alloy meant the car was roughly 330 pounds lighter than similar contemporary Ferraris. Eventually, the Ferrari ended up in the garage of its current owner around 1987 before being returned to its native Italy, displayed at Ferrari anniversary celebrations and peddled around the world for prestigious events – without ever taking center stage at a concourse event. “The Egg” is expected to bring over $5 million when the gavel drops at auction. Thought it is expensive enough it’s not the most expensive car in the world. Check our post to find out what is the most expensive car in the world.
