The Veyron is probably the most expensive production car. There are cars that go way over that on Barrett Jackson.

The original general lee sold for $10,000,000 on ebay. That one takes the cake. Next down is Carol Shelby's super snake cobra. sold for $5.5 million at last years Barrett Jackson.

I may be mistaken but the Ferrari in Ferris Buellers day off sold for 13 million, I also thought I heard that there are only 5 Ferrari 250 GT's in the world and every year they become more prized, north of 13 million.

The most expensive car in the world is the car that isn't paid-for yet.

Most expensive car in the world..... My Tacoma... PRICELESS!!

Are we talking historic cars or new production cars? Saw today that the bugatti isn't the most expensive anymore...it was a luxury car but don't remember the manufacture

Are you talking about the 959 from the late eighties? I know Bill Gates has one and they are very rare and very expensive. Here's a link.

13 years is a long time...

Quote:
The "Gates 959" is an infamous car,[7] one of 337 Porsche 959s built in the mid-eighties, that was imported by Bill Gates to the US in 1987. Paul Allen imported another one, as did Porsche collector Jerry Seinfeld. These cars had not been approved by regulators and had no United States Department of Transportation‎ and United States Environmental Protection Agency‎ approval. The "Gates 959" was stored for 13 years by the US Customs at the Port of Seattle, until regulations were changed to allow "Autos of Interest" to be imported with severe limitations on their use.[7] Gates and Allen both helped pass the "Show and Display" law.[7][8]

The 959 was a one off car for the good ole Group B days of racing. I made a post somewhere here regarding that racing class.

It's a Kevlar/aluminium design body with a twin sequential turbos. It was waaay ahead of it's time when it debuted. It is a most revered car in sports car circles and very rare. The phrase supercar comes from the 959. The run flat tire technology we have today comes in part from the 959 program. Utilizing Denloc tires/rims designed by Dunlop to withstand those speeds that were unheard of for a street car in that era.

FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT FELLAS:
