RAREST And Most EXPENSIVE Cars In The World!

RAREST And Most EXPENSIVE Cars In The World!


From special edition Rolls, to masterpieces
of engineering, here are 10 of the rarest cars in the world…. 10. Mercedes CLK-GTR The Mercedes CLK-GTR was designed to take
part in the new FIA GT championship series in 1997 and was built with a Mercedes-Benz
LS600 6 litre, V12 engine. The car performed quite well in the competition
that year, and as part of the terms of entry, Mercedes were required to produce a limited
production run of road-legal versions. In total, 25 were made, all as true to the
original design of the race car as possible. The engine was enhanced to a 6.9 litre version,
and produced 604 horsepower. The company claimed that this allowed the
car to reach a speed of 62 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds, and a top speed of 214
miles per hour. At the time of its release, the CLK-GTR was
the most expensive production car ever, costing a whopping 1.5 million dollars. This is a beautiful, and rare, vehicle, and
even if you had the funds to buy one- actually finding one that’s up for sale would prove
to be difficult! 9. 1905 Rolls-Royce 15 HP Rolls Royce is one of the most recognisable
names in the world of automobiles. They began making cars in 1904. Since then, they have been responsible for
some of the most iconic designs, and branched out into other areas including aircraft engines! But it’s the classic luxury cars that stand
out in collectors minds. This 1905 Rolls Royce 15 HP car is the second
oldest vehicle by the manufacturer that remains in existence, and by far the rarest. Surprisingly, the last one of these that was
made still works! Just imagine a brand new car that you bought
today, still running in 120 years time, it’s unbelievable! It has a 3-speed manual gearbox with a 3.1
litre engine, and can reach up to 39 miles per hour- a significant speed at that time,
I mean it is 122 years old! It may not sound like much now…. The company, though, was still in its infancy
in 1905, so only six of them were ever built. The history and collectability associated
with this car means that the insured replacement is approximately 35 million dollars. Yes, 35 million dollars!! 8. McLaren F1 LM I just saw a McLaren on the highway the other
day! But I don’t know what model it was. This stunning car is the McLaren F1 LM. It’s a tuned edition that was built to celebrate
the success of the track version in 1995’s Le Mans 24-hour race, with only a few alterations
to make it road legal. The car weighs only 2,341 pounds, and has
a 680 brake horsepower engine that allows it to reach 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds,
with a top speed of 225 miles per hour. Only six were ever made, all in the super
original Papaya orange colour as a tribute to Bruce McLaren, who the company is named
after, and his racing colours when he was a driver. The rarity and desirability of this McLaren
means that it’s REALLY expensive. In 2015 one sold, at auction, for 13.75 million
dollars. This is particularly high considering it doesn’t
have any of the creature comforts you may expect from a supercar. To stay true to the original design, there’s
stiffer suspension, no radio, and it definitely does NOT have any cup holders! And now for the Bugatti, but first be sure
to subscribe if you haven’t already! 7. 1927 Bugatti Royale In the 1920’s, Bugatti saw an opportunity
to sell a new style of luxury car, and designed the Bugatti Royale. To accommodate all the features they wanted
to put in, they made the car 21 feet long! It remains one of the largest cars to ever
be built. With a 12.7 litre engine that produced up
to 300 brake horsepower, no one ever tested it to see how fast it could go. At least not officially. Initially the plan was to build 25 of the
vehicles to sell to the wealthy, but in the end only 7 were made. One of these was destroyed- leaving only six
remaining, each of which was built with a different body, making them truly one of a
kind. Most of them are now displayed in museums
around the world, but one- known as the Kellner car, is still in private hands. It’s virtually impossible to put a price
on how expensive one of these would be today, but the last time one sold in 1999, it went
for 20 million dollars. 6. 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 GM Concept Car The Oldsmobile F-88 is thought by many to
be one of the most influential ever made, and it’s now one of the rarest too. It was designed as a dream car in 1954, and
was a project of love by American designer Harley Earl, based on designs by Bill Lange. It was built around the chassis of a Chevrolet
Corvette, and had a body made entirely out of fiberglass. The two door roadsters had a super 88 V8 engine
which produced 250 brake horsepower, and the style of design was the first of a new era
of car aesthetics and the one that led the way. Despite this, only four were ever made. Two became part of private collections and
their whereabouts are unknown, one was destroyed in a fire, and the final car was used as a
show car. It was sold at the Barrett-Jackson collector
car auction in 2005 for three million dollars, and is now permanently on display, for anyone
to see, at the Gateway Colorado automobile museum. 5. Lamborghini Reventon The Lamborghini Reventon hardly looks real,
and turned heads when it was first revealed at the Frankfurt Motor show in 2007. Just as insane was the price at two million
dollars, which made it by far the most expensive car that the Italian manufacturer had sold
at the time. To create the Reventon, they had designed
a completely new exterior, but used very similar mechanical designs as seen in the Murciélago
LP640. The 6.5 litre V12 engine gives the car a maximum
top speed of 221 miles per hour. This was somewhat of a vanity project for
Lamborghini, and they announced that only 21 of them would ever be made- including one
that would be kept in the Lamborghini museum. All 20 sold almost instantly, so it’s now
impossible to get one new- the only way you can get your hands on one of these is by convincing
a current owner to part ways with it. Practically impossible!! The company released details on where they
sold the cars to, with 10 being delivered to the US, seven to Europe, one to Canada,
and two to Asia. It was so popular that two years later they
designed a roadster version, again producing only 20 cars, and this time costing 2.1 million
dollars. Still, both versions are incredibly rare,
and would make a great addition to any one’s collection of supercars. 4. Honda NSX “Alex Zanardi Edition” The original Honda NSX, known in America as
the Acura NSX, was produced by the Japanese company between 1990 and 2005, and looked
to be the last mid engine sports car made by them, until they resurrected the name for
a successor in 2016. In 1999, a special edition “Alex Zanardi”
version was produced to celebrate the driver’s back to back CART championship wins for Honda. Only 51 were built, one of which was a press
car, and they were only available in New Formula Red. It had an all aluminium body, and a 3.2 litre
V6 engine which produced 290 brake horsepower, which allowed it to reach 60 miles per hour
in 4.5 seconds. The first off the production line was given
to Zanardi himself, with the rest being sold through dealers in the US. It’s not known how much they would sell
for today, but with standard Honda NSX’s still commanding around 160,000 dollars, it’ll
likely be lot more. 3. 1996 Ferrari F50 GT Every list of rare and desirable cars has
to have a Ferrari, and here’s one of the rarest of all- the Ferrari F50 GT. The car was originally designed to take part
in the BPR Global GT series, but the F50 project was soon cancelled because competitor manufacturers,
such as Porsche and Mercedes, designed much faster and agile vehicles for the championship. Still, 3 F50’s were made- one of which was
a prototype, and 2 which were to be sold. With a 4.7 litre V12 engine that provides
750 brake horsepower, it can reach 60 miles per hour in a lightning fast 2.9 seconds,
and hits a top speed of 235 miles per hour. Perhaps it’s the legend of what might have
been, but never was, but despite never taking part in a single race, the F50 reached legendary
status with Ferrari fans. In 2013 one of these was up for sale with
an asking price of 2.9 million dollars. While that’s a lot of money to most people
for a car, it’s an absolute bargain for such a rarity, and a piece of Ferrari history. 2. 2005 Maybach Exelero The 2005 Maybach Exelero is a stunning piece
of engineering, and was originally built for Fulda, a German tyre company, to display its
products. It weighs in at 2.9 tons, but with a V12,
twin turbo engine that generates 700 brake horsepower, it hits 62 miles per hour in 4.4
seconds and reaches a top speed of 218 miles per hour. Only one of these cars has ever been built,
and while that may seem surprising- it makes sense when you hear the price. Brand new it cost 8 million dollars. It was put up for sale in 2005, but it took
until 2011 before the rapper “Birdman” decided to buy it. It turned out to be too costly a purchase
for him, though, so the deal seemingly fell through- so, if you have a spare 8 million
lying around, you might just be able to get your hands on this one. 1. Captain Nemo’s Car And finally number one and without doubt the
most unique car in the world, and one of the rarest. If you think it looks familiar, then that’s
probably because it was used in 2003’s “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” movie starring
Sean Connery. It’s the car used by Captain Nemo, and needed
to be extravagant. It was designed by the production designer
of the movie, Carol Spier, and is fully functional- if not entirely road legal. It’s 22-feet long, and has a Rover V8 engine. It began life as a Land Rover, which was modified
with a steel frame, and covered with an ivory coloured fibreglass shell. Taking inspiration from the Hindu god Ganesha,
there are aged gold embellishments across the entire vehicle, and a faux leather interior. The six 28-inch wheels are mounted on hydraulics
so you can adjust the ride height, and it was designed to drive in such a way that special
effects weren’t needed in the movie. There are only 2 in the world after an enthusiast
built one of his own. Surprisingly for such an elaborate and unique
vehicle, the original sold at auction in 2015 for just over 30,000 English pounds- which
is about 40 to 45,000 dollars. By far the rarest and the cheapest on this
whole list! Thanks for watching! Which one would you like to own? Let us all know in the comments below!
