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

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

    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

    I'm too lazy to research it but a while ago Porche made a car on the 911 frame but everything was either aluminum or titanium and i think they only made around 6 because of the production cost. like i said i'm too lazy to look up the details on the specs or its worth but i'm sure its high as hell

    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.

    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.
