Forget the parking bollard in the centre, we’d make sure we had bollards on all sides if we owned one of these name brands!
We all know Bugatti, Ferrari, and Koenigsegg cars are expensive, but just how expensive are we talking?
And of all the top contenders, which among them stands out as the most unobtainable? Is it the Ferrari or a Lambo? A Rolls Royce or a top-end Aston Martin?
At ease, we’ve done the digging for you. We ran the numbers on the most expensive cars in the world right now to determine the most expensive (and most bollard-deserving), and listed them for some at-a-glance comparison. You know, in case you were in the market.
Here’s what some of the most iconic players on the tar will set you back:
The Ferrari LaFerrari – $1.4 Million (AUD1.9 Million)
It probably comes to mind right out the gate when one thinks of expensive cars. For this fire-engine red classic, you’re looking at an easy one and a half million USD, but that still puts it well behind the competition.
Aston Martin Valkyrie – $3.2 Million (AUD4.4 Million)
James Bond’s favourite brand is appropriately top-end at $3.2 big ones – or at least, that’s the running estimate. You may have never seen one of these – and that’s because they boast 900 Newton-metres of torque on a V12 engine producing 1,160 horsepower and reaching speeds of 321km/ph. It may also be because they have only just recently been released over in November 2021.
Lamborghini Veneno – $4.5 Million (AUD6.2 Million)
If you’re on a budget, you could get the Lambo Sian for a cool $3.6 million instead. But then your richer friends might laugh at you. We kid of course, they’re both V12 monsters.
Bugatti Divo – $5.8 Million (AUD8 Million)
And this is still on the cheap end for a Bugatti. Only 40 of these have come into existence, making their aerodynamic-way around the race track at light speeds. The bollards would be for the pedestrians in this instance.
Mercedes-Maybach Exelero – $8 million (AUD11 Million)
A mere several houses worth of car. This was a one-off commission for a subsidiary of Goodyear called Fulda. Designed to test out their new tires, this machine boasts a V12 engine and 690 horsepower and is capable of reaching a top speed of 350 km/ph. That’s a lot of horses!
Bugatti La Voiture Noire – $18.7 Million (AUD25.66 Million)
The most expensive car ever sold, this absolute beauty was indeed also a one-of-a-kind piece with a price tag to match. Sorry, you’ll have to put your wallets away, as it already has a home.
Rolls-Royce Boat Tail – estimated $28 Million (AUD38.4 Million)
This Rolls-Royce is not even yet in production, so the above estimation is currently calculated guesswork. The vehicle will hit stores near you complete with a champagne fridge, built-in sun umbrella and luxury interior. Better get saving.
Of course, even our old faithful beat-up cars have tremendous value in the emotional department. We wouldn’t trade ours for anything (except maybe the Royce).
Is your car worth protecting your parking spot for? Show it some love with a parking bollard so it knows its place in your heart (and parking bay) is always open.
