For most people, $100,000 dollars for a car seems like a lot of money. However, this doesn’t even come close to the amount of cash some people drop on a blue-chip sports car. Indeed, some premier car manufacturers have models on the road that are priced well in excess of one million dollars. These cars represent the absolute highest standards in performance and luxury and here are three of most expensive vehicles in the world.

The Aston Martin One-77

James Bond’s car of choice, the Aston Martin as a brand is known for quality and sophistication, and it doesn’t get any classier than its top vehicle model – the Aston Martin One-77.

It’s said that Aston Martin’s engineers pour over 2,700 hours into building each individual car and the results show. Built from carbon fibre to reduce wind resistance and heighten performance, this car oozes class and looks like something out of the future. With a top speed of over 350 km/hr, the One-77 is the ultimate gentleman’s sports car built on a 7.3 L V12 engine.

The car is also extremely rare with only 77 manufactured – hence the name. Aston Martin sold each one for 1 million pounds, so nearly $1.7 million AUD dollars.

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport

The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport offers so much performance that it’s almost a waste to drive on normal roads. Considered to be one of the fastest production cars in the world, its 8 Litre engine delivers over 1000 units of horsepower to create a top speed of over 400 km/hr. In order to see the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 in all its glory, you need to put it on a real racetrack. You just hit the gas pedal and you go flying as this car goes from zero to 100 km/hour in just 2.5 seconds.

However, all that performance doesn’t come cheap and at a cool $1.5 million price tag for the normal Bugatti Veyron 164 coupe, or $2 million for the Grand Sport version, the Bugatti will certainly turn heads as you streak past.

The Koenigsegg Agera

Inspired by the movement of dolphins in the water, the Swedish Koenigsegg Agera delivers top-notch performance while also trying to reduce greenhouse emissions. Built from the ground up, this supercar is the first non-hybrid car to use a lithium ion battery, rather than lead-acid.

Of course, Koenigsegg didn’t skimp on performance in the name of the environment. The Agera is also one of the fastest in the world and on September 2, 2011, the Agera made it into the Guinness World Records with a run of 0-300 kph in just 14.53 seconds.

Built on a sleek carbon fibre chassis and carrying a price tag of over $2 million, the Koenigsegg Agera is the ultimate sports car for those environmentally conscience millionaires.

As manufacturers continue to push the limits of car performance, they’ll continue to push up the price tags as well. Not many people have one million or more to spend on a car, but those that do will certainly get the ride of a lifetime.
