Lamborghini Veneno. Photo credit: Automobili Lamborghini. As human beings, we all love to noodle over what’s the biggest, what’s the highest, what’s the fastest, what’s the most expensive. That urge is what has kept the Guinness Book of World Records in business for nearly sixty years to date. Per that, we decided to pull together a few lists of extreme cars. Read on to see what we found... Most expensive cars in the world For this info, we turned to DigitalTrends.com’s article, Dream wheels: The top ten most expensive cars in the world (March 2014). The good news is that, if you can spare $845,000, then you can own the cheapest car on this list: the Porsche 918 Spyder. This hybrid boasts 887 horsepower, enough to go 0-60 in 2.8 seconds. “For comparison,” the article reads, “that’s faster than the money you’ll have to plunk down for this thing can leave your bank account.” At the top of this list is the Lamborghini Veneno at $4 million – but, even if you had that kind of dough, all three cars have already been sold. If you can scrounge together another 500k, though, you still have a shot at one of the nine roadsters. Digital Trends calls the Lamborghini Veneno “simply jaw-dropping,” also with 0-60 capabilities, which is “probably faster than sound can leave your body during a terrified scream.” Ten cheapest cars Assuming that not everyone will have the $845,000 needed for the Porsche, we decided to include Jalopnik.com’s list of The Ten Cheapest Cars Ever Sold. The cheapest car available in the United States right now (says this December 2013 article) is the Nissan Versa at $12,780. There are cheaper cars in this list, but these prices correspond to the release dates of the vehicles so:
- Yes, a 2007 KIA would have been free – but the catch was that you needed to buy a 2008 KIA at the same time.
- And, yes. A Ford Model T was a great bargain at $3,895 in 1923 but. That was more than 90 years ago.
- Even cheaper than a Model T was the Banner Boy Buckboard at $3,152 – but that photo kind of reminds me of my Big Wheel.
