Top 5 Most Expensive Cars 2022

In the world of supercars and luxury cars, only the mega-rich can play in this very exclusive reality, while the average cost of a new car is roughly around £30,000 in most cases, that amount cannot cover the cost of a single door in some of the cars in our most expensive cars lists.

Don’t get it twisted, these incredibly expensive cars are not sports cars or supercars they fall into whole new categories of cars, they are best described as “mega cars” or “hypercars. With the exception of the ultra-luxury Rolls-Royce Boat Tail, all of them are extremely outlandish, compelling and viscerally exciting models with top speeds well in excess of 200mph.

A lot of the mega cars are usually one-offs or few-offs, built in a totally bespoke manner and commissioned for “mega-rich” owners. We’ve got models mainly from Bugatti in our top 5 cars. We’ve restricted this list to cars built and sold to private owners in the last five years.

1. Rolls-Royce Boat Tail - £25 million (est)

Jaw-dropping design, jaw-dropping price, as some would say, a double whammy!

This is truly bespoke in terms of design as dictated by its owners, Yes, there have been very special classic cars that sold for more at auction, but as brand-new cars, few close to the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail.

Somewhat related to the V12-powered Rolls-Royce Phantom underneath, the Boat Tail is inspired by ultra-luxury yachts from the 1920s and beyond with a bespoke body with a removable roof canopy, a new level of interior finish and what’s known as a “hosting suite”; an opening rear deck containing a parasol, high-class outdoor seating and a champagne fridge.

Three Rolls-Royce Boat Tails have been built in total, customised from the ground up by their well-heeled owners. The price? Rolls don’t discuss the vulgar manner of money, but the estimate is anywhere from £22-25 million pounds each, making it by far and away the world’s most expensive new car.

2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire - £11.4 million (approx)

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a true one-off, while your bog-standard Chiron costs £2.5 million, the Noire will set you back a whooping £11.4 million well over 4 times the cost of the Chiron.

Bugatti La Voiture Noire is 450mm longer than a standard Chiron and tuned to be more of a grand tourer. Despite that, it still uses the same quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16 engine putting out a little under 1500PS, so it will still get a move on if you flex your right foot. It remains to be seen if Bugatti can find someone rich enough to commission another example.

3. Bugatti Centodieci - £9 million

The Bugatti Centodieci is positively more common than the La Voiture Noire, one of which was purchased by Cristiano Ronaldo. The Bugatti Centodieci borrows the same aggressive front end and uses a similar mechanically adjustable rear wing as the EB110 Super Sport. But it’ll blow it into next week with a massive 1600PS from a tuned version of the Chiron’s 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine.

The car also celebrated the brand’s 110-year anniversary. The price? About £9 million inclusive of taxes.

4. Bugatti Divo - £4.8 million

The hierarchy of Bugattis is easy to follow: as they get more expensive, fewer are made. The Divo costs £4.8 million (which makes the standard Bugatti Chiron look fairly priced) and only 40 were produced. In July 2021, the last one came off the production line and was given to its owner.

It should come as no surprise that the Bugatti Divo is based on a Chiron and uses the same W16 engine. However, it has been designed as a more track-focused sports car than a straight-line vehicle, with all-new carbon-fibre bodywork that reduces weight, as well as more downforce and a reduced top speed of 236mph.

The standard Chiron can reach an even higher top speed of 261mph with its special ‘Top Speed’ mode. But the Bugatti Divo outperforms its sibling in the bends. It also sports a more menacing look to help it stand out from the crowd, while there is a huge range of personalisation options.

5. Bugatti Bolide - £4 million (est)

The Bugatti Bolide is the most extreme-looking of the lot, and that’s because it’s a track-only model, unlike the others in this list. Imagine paying all that money and never being allowed to take it on the road. Still, if you’re rich enough to buy the Bugatti Bolide you’ll probably have a Chiron or two spares for that. Originally shown off as a concept, Bugatti decided to build 40 Bolides to sell to customers.

We reckon it’ll be the fastest of all the Bugattis, and one of the very fastest cars around the track money can buy. Its W16 engine was boosted to a bonkers 1825PS in the concept, although that figure is achieved on 110-octane race fuel. In production form, it puts out the same 1600PS as the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport and Centodieci.

The racing spec is clear from looking at the Bolide, with its intense aero-sculpted shape, lower roofline giant dual-element wing and mad diffuser. Buyers are offered exclusive Bugatti track days to test their mettle with this incredible car.


No doubt that these cars are designed and built to perfection and without a doubt made for the mega-rich and the very few in the billionaires club. If you are looking for one of getting one of these hypercars or dreaming that one day those cars would be parked in your garage then our top 5 list of expensive cars is a good starting point.
