Below is a compiled list of 2019 top 10 most expensive cars. For clarity, we have arranged these expensive rides in order of their base prices, although we are sure that none of these manufacturers have ever sold an example of any of these cars at their entry price, without a single option added. Happiness, at least from these 10 cars, will likely cost you more than the listed prices.
1 Rolls-Royce Cullinan: $327,750
Rolls-Royce is not the only ultraluxury manufacturer to build an SUV—Bentley, after all, builds the Bentayga—but its cullinan does hold the honor of being the most expensive sport-ute in the land. With an imposing presence and a sumptuous interior, it’s every bit the Rolls-Royce that the company’s Ghost and Phantom sedans are, only taller.
2. Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante: $335,000
It doesn’t get much better than a droptop Aston Martin, does it? The DBS Superleggera is far from the most expensive car on this list, but just look at it—it’s clearly one of the most desirable, based on its drop-dead gorgeous looks alone. The standard twin-turbo 5.2-liter V-12 with 715 horsepower is really just a cherry on top.
3. Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase: $350,500
The Ghost may play second fiddle to Rolls-Royce’s massive, excessive Phantom, but it’s plenty luxurious and impressive on its own. Now in its second generation, the current Ghost is known as the Series II, and the long-wheelbase version with extra rear-seat room is the more expensive variant.
4. Rolls-Royce Dawn: $351,150
Elegance is abundant in this droptop Rolls. Although it’s essentially a convertible version of the Wraith coupe, which itself is related to the Ghost sedan, the Dawn possesses a personality all its own, thanks in no small part to the open-air experience it offers and the numerous paint and trim options that play up its land-yacht vibe.
5. Ferrari 812 Superfast: $366,730
The name says it all: Ferrari’s front-engine coupe is all about speed, and its 789-hp V-12 engine has the goods. When we tested the 812, it went from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and ran the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at 138 mph. Ferrari claims a top speed of 211 mph. The naturally aspirated twelve also makes sounds that are entirely worth more than $366,730.
6. Bentley Mulsanne Extended Wheelbase: $367,925
Bentley has changed a lot in recent decades, but the Mulsanne exemplifies the ultraluxury brand’s old-school spirit. Big, ostentatious, and slightly dated, it’s a luxury sedan in the British tradition. The extended-wheelbase model kicks the size up a notch and makes for an even more palatial experience for the rear-seat passengers.
7 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider: $394,324
Ferrari’s mid-engine 488 is quite the sensational machine, and the Pista is an even more special, higher-performance version of the V-8 powered supercar. The droptop Spider variant makes it even easier to hear the sensational wail of the 710-hp twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V-8 engine. It also makes it possible to part with even more money from your wallet—the Spider costs 40 grand more than the hardtop Pista.
8 Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase: $497,525
The Phantom makes all the other Rolls-Royces on this list look like child’s toys. This is the big-daddy Rolls, and it has the price to back that up. Now in its eighth generation, the Phantom serves as the Rolls lineup’s flagship model and is available in both standard- and extended-wheelbase forms. We’d choose the latter, obviously, because this is a car to be driven in, not to drive. Plus, it’s pricier, which feels like the entire point of a car like this.
9. Lamborghini Aventador SVJ: $526,865
It shouldn’t shock you that Lamborghinis are expensive they’re the stuff of childhood-bedroom posters, after all. But this Lamborghini is really expensive, as the juiced-up SVJ model sits at the top of the Aventador range and features a 759-hp V-12 engine.
10. Bugatti Chiron Sport : $3,260,000
The Bugatti Chiron is more than six times more expensive than the next-most-expensive car on this list. Yes, to confirm, it is still just a car with four wheels, two doors, two seats, and a steering wheel. But if the Chiron resembles the definition of a car, it is unlike any other one out there. Its quad-turbocharged W-16 engine and untouchable exclusivity put it at the top of the heap in terms of performance. A specially outfitted example even made history by breaking the 300-mph barrier recently. Is that worth more than $3 million to you?
