20/03/2019

Even though 2019 is still young, there are some new super expensive cars that are certainly toping the world record with jaw-dropping worth. See the top 8 here!

NaijaCarNews.com cannot but respect the worth of some of the cars we are about to discuss in this update because one unit of some of these cars can buy a whole fleet and still get “change”.

It will be correct in some cases to even say that some of the cars in this list are worth way more than some small countries entire GDP 😊. Yes, they are more than cars, they are simply luxury amenities on wheels.

Interesting enough, at least one unit of each of these cars are owned by a fellow human like you Lolz. That’s how life can be sometimes.

Below is the list of our top 8 currently most expensive cars in the world;

This car was completely crafted from carbon fibre and it’s a one-off production sports car as well-meaning only one unit was made. It comes with a 16-cylinder powerful engine. And the name of the car means “the black car” in the French language.

It was just unveiled this month at the 2019 Geneva Auto show in Detroit. And was sold to a certain anonymous enthusiast for a price of £9.5 million (₦4.7 billion) before tax. This makes it the current world’s most expensive car.

All of the above cars are obviously not fashioned out to fit everyone’s daily mobility need so, you don’t need to beat yourself up if you can’t afford one.
