The World’s most expensive cars

The average car buyer will most likely spend hours and hours carrying out research into the type of new motor they should buy; looking into things such as the size of engine that is needed to deliver the necessary miles per gallon, as well as the tax band and insurance group it will fall into. And then there are the more important questions that need to be answered, such as: Are there enough cup holders? And will the golf clubs fit easily into the boot? However, for the wealthier ones among us, buying a car is a more simple process that requires nothing more than knowing which car you’d like to add to your collection next. It really is a question of status, and there is a massive list to choose from. From the Koenigsegg Agera R, a motor that can reach 60mph in a staggering 2.9 seconds, to the super luxurious Maybach Exelero which would set you back over £3 million! It’s worth noting though, that the more expensive and exclusive a vehicle is, the more an insurance claim would cost in the event of an accident. For instance, Rowan Atkinson learnt this when he crashed his McLaren F1 in 2011. The repair bill broke the record for the largest insurance claim after McLaren engineers estimated the fixing the damage would cost a staggering £910,000 – and would certainly cost Atkinson his no claims bonus.
