How many Americans know what a Pagani Zonda is? They might be surprised to know that at $2 million dollars, it's the third most expensive car in the world.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 23, 2011
Internet auto insurance provider 4AutoInsuranceQuote.com released their report on the top ten most expensive cars in the world last week. Fast and flashy sports cars top their list of cars they say “you'll probably never be able to afford.” The big winner (if you can call it that) in this study, with a price of $2.5 million, is the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Coming in at number two on their list at $2.21 million is the Koenisegg Trevita. Lamborgini, Maybach, and Ferrari also hold spots on this European-dominated top ten list.
The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport model was designed by the German Volkswagon group and later produced by Bugatti Automobiles SAS. Not only is it the most expensive car in the world, it is also known as the fastest road-legal car in the world. It has a 1,200 metric horsepower engine and is able to reach speeds of 431.07 km/h (or 253.52 mph). A “blistering-fast” automobile, they say, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport can go from 0mph to 60mph in just 2.46 seconds.
An auto insurance quote comparison website, 4AutoInsuranceQuote.com releases many studies yearly on the automobile and auto insurance industry. Recent reports released by them include “The Most Expensive Cars To Insure,” “The Best Auto Insurance Companies,” “The Least Expensive Cars To Insure,” and “The Top 10 Most Stolen Vehicles.” While many of these studies are done annually, this is the first year in which 4AutoInsuranceQuote.com has released their list on the 10 most expensive cars in the world. Because of the overwhelming popularity of this report, however, owner James Shaffer says that this report will be done yearly “for a long time to come.”
A lot of interesting names appeared on this top 10 most expensive cars in the world list, they say. “We've all heard of Lamborghini and Ferrari,” owner James Shaffer says. “But how many Americans know what a Pagani Zonda is? They might be surprised to know that at $2 million dollars, it's the third most expensive car in the world.”
To be listed on the top ten most expensive cars list, the vehicle has to be legal on the open road. It also has to be a vehicle available for purchase by the public. In addition, only one vehicle per company is allowed. There is no minimum price required to be listed, however, the “cheapest” vehicle on the list comes in at a modest $670,000.
