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!

Luxury And Magnificent The Rolls-Royce Aeroboat S6

Combining pure elegance and luxury outdoor living with the thrill of high-performance cruising, the blissful 65-feet Rolls-Royce Aeroboat S6 is ready to seduce each and every single one of us. This magnificent vessel was specially designed to create the ultimate user-focused yachting experience, with the overall aesthetics and teardrop shaped cockpit hinting towards some serious thrills. The cockpit includes a sofa-style helm station and a lovely seating area, with a concealed table for al fresco dining, offering serene views of the ocean whether you’re at the helm or just relaxing on deck. But there are many other surprises around, like hidden television screens, that are automatically stowed away when they’re not in use, or a stunning information panel mounted to the upper frame of the windscreen. Another important feature of the Aeroboat S6 is the extendable swim platform, that’s as wide as the transom and can be easily lowered right into the sea, allowing you to access the clear blue waters. Dubbed as the “Aerostairs platform”, this special feature was designed to be a safe and graceful system, that’s also perfect to get on and off the yacht. Apart from this, guests may also enjoy a full-size day head and shower, a generous galley and comfortable sleeping arrangements below deck. The S6 features a superstructure composite tail, set to reveal the engine bay and also includes a wide passerelle with pop up rails for easy access on-board. One way or another, this yacht will be flying over the seas!

$13M Rolls-Royce Sweptail – The Most Expensive Car Ever Build

Rolls-Royce unveiled a one-off custom build called the Sweptail. At a reported price of nearly $13 million, it is believed to be the most expensive new car ever commissioned. We’ve included this car into our list Top 10 Most Expensive Cars in the World. Rolls Royce Sweptail – a bespoke one-off coupe built for one of Rolls Royce’s “most valued customers.” “Sweptail is the automotive equivalent of haute couture,” Giles Taylor, the director of design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said in a statement. “It is a Rolls-Royce designed and hand-tailored to fit a specific customer.” According to Rolls, a customer approached the company in 2013 and asked it to build a one-of-a-kind motor car inspired by the luxury yachts of the 1920s and ’30s. The Sweptail’s signature feature is a single-piece glass roof that tapers into the car’s fastback rear end. It’s a design feature that dominates the car’s silhouette. The front grille of the unique motor car is also unique by itself and is the largest fitted to any modern-era Rolls Royce giving it a distinct look. It’s milled from a single piece of aluminum and hand-polished to give it a mirror shine. On the rear end is the “swept-tail” that gives the car its name. The coup de gras of the rear is the ultimate homage to the world of racing yachts that inspired the client, with its raked stern. The back seat is replaced with a wood mid-shelf that features an illuminated glass lip. Further back is the wood hat shelf, polished and inset with luggage rails and surrounded by a large teardrop-shaped glass roof that contributes to a very bright, airy cockpit. On the inside, the cabin is predictably wrapped in opulence. Rolls claims the car’s dash is the cleanest to date, with a clock made from the thinnest Macassar veneer and machined titanium hands. The center console also houses a mechanism that serves up a bottle of champagne and two crystal champagnes flutes. The Sweptail comes with its own set of luggage. Rolls-Royce has not released technical specs of the car, but it’s believed to be based on the current-generation Phantom platform, which means some version of the company’s 6.75-liter V-12 is most likely lurking under its long bonnet. Owner of such expensive car also must own the world’s most expensive yacht for sure!

Rolls-Royce Concept of Futuristic Driverless Luxury Vehicle

Car brand Rolls-Royce has designed its first ever concept car, billed as a vision for a future of driverless luxury vehicles with a built-in “red carpet” and lighting system that announces its arrival to bystanders. Called the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100, the design aims to “anticipate the mobility demands of the luxury customer of the future”. Unveiled at London’s Roundhouse venue, the concept car includes a roof that glides open with a hinged design based on a clamshell. This would allow riders to step into the interior without having to bend over. The roof and door would then close automatically. Many of the signature forms of a Rolls-Royce have been updated in the design for the body of the car. The brand’s classic Pantheon grille has been kept and reimagined as a smaller but more prominent frontage for the vehicle. The designers imagined a Rolls-Royce that could be designed around less mechanical hardware, replacing the majority of the engine space with a luggage compartment. This also allowed them to make the car narrower, and create a sport-style rear and curved cabin roof, made from black glass. The wheels are housed in individual cases, with exposed arms and struts that connect to the chassis and also support the hull-shaped body at the front. “The 28-inch tall but narrow wheels upon which the car glides are each hand-built from 65 individual pieces of aluminium, and enclosed to deliver the impression of a futuristic catamaran,” said Rolls-Royce. “From whatever angle the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 is viewed, it seems to float, whether at rest or in motion. This lightness is achieved through the paring back of this vehicle to the essence of a Rolls-Royce by the design team, who were freed from their current constraints by the new propulsion and coach-build technologies now available to them.” The brand’s signature radiator mascot – a figure of a woman leaning into the wind with fabric blowing around her – has been recreated in crystal and is illuminated from inside. This light spreads across the car as it arrives at its destination, and a step appears from the side of the car once the roof has opened. A red light is then projected to create a red-carpet style arrival. “The Grand Arrival gesture of the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 creates a stage for our important passengers as they arrive at their ultimate destination,” said Giles Taylor, director of design at Rolls-Royce. “It is an expression of our intrinsic understanding of the possibilities for a true luxury brand and the desires of its customers.” Rolls-Royce said it wanted to recreate the experience of grand horse-drawn carriages, with the coachman replaced by an artificial-intelligence system. The company has named this “virtual assistant” Eleanor, and said that it could offer owners advice on how to prepare for meetings and important events as well as driving the car. It could also help select movies and music for the car’s entertainment system. Inside, the car has no driving area. Instead, the interior resembles a lounge, with wooden panelling, a deep-pile carpet and a wool-and-silk-upholstered sofa facing a full-width OLED screen that functions as an entertainment and work station. All of the features could be customised for each owner, using interactive design tools that would allow them to give their input before the car is built. Rolls-Royce imagines the car would be powered by a zero-emission drivetrain and use “advanced suspension” to create the sensation of the car skimming the surface of the road like a “magic carpet”.

Rolls-Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II

Turkish automotive designer Ugur Sahin has recently presented his own version of the Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe. The main goal of this design was to respectfully reinterpret the original Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe I, which was built in Belgium by Henri Jonckheere and his son Joseph Jonckheere in 1935. What has remained from that company is currently manufacturing bodies for cars and buses. They’ve asked Ugur Sahin to give a new appearance to their most appreciated project. Infusing a new look to a 77-year-old car is not an easy thing to do but Ugur Sahin pulled it off with a redesigned massive front grille and revised round doors that pay tribute to the original model. At the back it adopts similar bold styling with just a few subtle changes that don’t change the car’s stance and main proportions. Currently Ugur Sahin is negotiating with potential investors and parties who are interested to become involved in the project in order to build an exclusive “One-Off” car which is destined to give its owner the ultimate feeling of luxury.
