To everyone’s surprise, the most expensive car in the world was made in 2017, and there are only three of them.
There’s no doubt the world of cars is one that requires great investments in order to create “the perfect machine”, a car that doesn’t only reaches great speed, but also implements the latest technology the world has to offer.
It seems a high-spec car will always be synonym with hi-cost, or so does the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta, the world’s most expensive sports car, indicates. Efraín Rojas Mata tells all about this luxury car.
Made especially for Horacio Pagani’s birthday, the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta sports car is the most expensive car in the entire world, costing up to 17.5 million dollars.
Despite being presented last 2017 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, it was not until recently that its price was revealed, making it the current most expensive car in the world.
Previously, the prized title belonged to the Rolls Royce Sweptail, priced at 14 million dollars, which started development in 2013 by petition of a millionaire client who wanted a luxury car like no other before. Four years later, the Sweptail has lost its crown.
The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta’s Specs
The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta has no hood, but it does have a small windbreaker. Inspiration came from models such as the Pagani Zonda. A 7.3 liter Mercedes AMG V12 propels it, fed by a 760 horsepower engine, 6 speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive. It can go from 0 to 60mph in 3.1 seconds.
Its luxurious seats are upholstered in plaid as a tribute to Horacio Pagani’s idol, Juan Manuel Fangio, whose “Silver Arrow” car sports the same design in its own seats, once again reminding us that this super high-spec sports-car was truly custom-made for its owner.
To date, only three Zonda HP Barchetta exist, making Horacio Pagani and two others the only three people who can enjoy driving the most expensive cars in the world.
