A high-end car is far more than wheels, seats, and a hood. Pedigree, power, and performance are packed into every square inch of modern supercars. However, it’s even more than that. Luxury auto manufacturers invest endless creativity and talent into making their cars works of art—truly, more than the sum of their parts. Supercars evoke not only power but presence, history, and comfort. Below you can discover a list of 10 of the most expensive cars, money can buy, in 2020.
The Centodieci continues Bugatti’s successful 110-year course of exceptional design and performance while reviving the memory of the brand’s recent history. With this expensive car, Bugatti created a reinterpretation of the epochal EB110, which, when presented in 1991, was considered the fastest and most extraordinary supercar of its time. The EB110, built by Romano Artioli in Italy, was an important intermediate step for the foundation of Bugatti in 1998 and for the return to the French roots in Molsheim.
Since the birth of Formula 1, engineers have been dreaming of bringing supreme technology to the streets. Following four FIA Formula 1 World Drivers’ Championships and four FIA Formula One World Constructors’ Championships in succession, this dream is now a reality. The two-seater Mercedes-AMG Project ONE transfers the latest and most efficient Formula 1 hybrid technology almost one to one from the track to the street for the first time. The expensive car produces over 1,000 horsepower at a maximum speed of over 350 km/h. The Mercedes-AMG Project ON combines stunning racetrack performance and practical Formula 1 hybrid technology with exemplary efficiency.
The Sián FKP 37 is the first super sports car powered by a V12 engine and hybrid technology based on supercapacitors. Its powerful V12 engine, coupled with an electric boost, creates an unrivalled gem of engineering and technology. Sián—lightning in Bolognese—is a name that captures the expensive car’s true character, foremost its speed, which exceeds 220 mph (350 km/h).
The Zenvo TS1 GT is a limited production sports car manufactured by Danish automobile manufacturer Zenvo Automotive. It was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Though the TS1 GT shares a similar chassis and body with its predecessor, the ST1, its new powertrain and upgraded interior earn it a new model designation along with the ‘grand tourer’ qualification. The production of the expensive car is planned to be limited at 5 units per year, an increase from the limited 15-car total production run of its predecessor.
Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300
To mark the sensational record-breaking run that exceeded the magical threshold of 300 miles (482,80 km) per hour for the first time, Bugatti proudly presents the Chiron Super Sport 300+. Limited to 30 units, this very special edition of the Chiron is visually and technically inspired by the record-breaking vehicle. The expensive car‘s bodywork has been extended and aerodynamically optimized for extremely high-speed performance. The perfect balance between low drag and downforce improves performance and stability, even at speeds over 420 km/h. The iconic W16 8.0-litre engine now delivers an output of 1.176 kW/1.600 HP, exceeding the Chiron by 100 HP.
Aston Martin DBZ Centenary Edition
The modern twin to the previously unveiled DB4 GT Zagato Continuation, DBS GT Zagato forms the contemporary half of this unique pairing and will pack 760bhp through its 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 power unit. This uniquely ambitious project, created to celebrate the centenary of the legendary Zagato signature, pays tribute to an icon of the past and creates a classic of the future.
Lamborghini Centenario Roadster
Designed for unbridled performance, the Centenario Roadster is based on a carbon-fibre monocoque and body. The V12 engine develops 770 hp and accelerates from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 2.9 seconds, braking from 62-0 mph (100-0 km/h) in just 101 ft (31 m). The expensive car is equipped with the Lamborghini rear-wheel steering system for unparalleled handling dynamics and road holding.
Exceptionally crafted, striking in character, strictly limited and with completely different driving dynamics – the DIVO is BUGATTI’s first modern coach-built project: athletic, sharp, with distinctive handling properties, stunning lateral acceleration and a unique design language. The aerodynamics of the expensive car have been intensively fine-tuned for additional downforce, while the suspension and chassis settings were modified for an even more compelling driving experience. Powered by BUGATTI’s iconic eight-litre W16 engine –with an output of 1,500 PS and 1,600 Nm– the Divo combines incomparable coachbuilding quality with exhilarant driving experience.
Bugatti La Voiture Noire
A pioneering spirit, passion for perfection and the desire to continually redefine its limits have been the key characteristics of BUGATTI since it was founded 110 years ago. None of the brand’s masterpieces reflects these values more impressively than the Type 57 SC Atlantic. Created by Ettore Bugatti’s eldest son Jean, the only four Atlantics ever created a stand for pure elegance and sophistication. With its homage to the fourth, all-black Atlantic, missing since the Second World War, BUGATTI is bringing the speed, technology, luxury and aesthetics of an icon into a new era. But the customised creation of “La Voiture Noire” is far more than a modern interpretation of the ghost of the Gran Turismo. “La Voiture Noire” is a tribute to BUGATTI’s own history, a manifesto of the BUGATTI aesthetic and a piece of automotive haute couture.
The Aspark Owl is an all-electric battery-powered sports car manufactured by Japanese engineering firm Aspark, under development since 2018, with the goal of making the fastest accelerating electric car.
