How much did you pay for your last car? The national average cost for a new auto today is $33,560. If you have $30k to spend, you’ll have a broad array of nice cars to choose from. What if you double it to $67,120? Then you’ll be able to shop around in the big ticket brands such as BMW and Mercedes Benz. But how many times would you need to multiply it for the most expensive car in the world?
To reach the price of the costliest car in the world, you’d have to multiply the national average cost of a new car by 144.5.
How much would that be? A cool $4,850,000. So now that we know the price tag, let’s talk about the costliest automobile in the world and why it justifies such a price tag.
The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita at $4,850,000 is the most expensive street legal, production car that money can buy.
Koenigsegg is a Swedish auto maker that specializes in supercars that are immensely fast and amazingly luxurious.
As an example of the extravagance of this stunning showpiece, consider the fact that the CCXR Trevita’s paint is made from carbon fiber with diamonds woven into it. These diamonds create a dazzling reflection when hit by sunlight. Imagine the attention you would attract if you picked the kids up from school in a Trevita.
If you pay millions of dollars for a car it better be fast, and the CCXR takes velocity to a whole new level. Its engine puts out over 1,000 horsepower and it can accelerate up to a top speed of 254 mph - that's 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds.
