Top 6 Most Expensive Cars Sold in 2014

Cars are just cool, they go fast, they look really sleek, they show that you have a certain status, and they attract all kinds of attention. Like seriously, who doesn’t love a great looking, fast moving, and extravagant automobile? I know I do, and when it comes to luxury, price can’t really be considered, because you know what they say, “If you have to ask how expensive it is, then you probably can’t afford it.”

And when you want something nice like a luxury sports car, then the price really shouldn’t be that important because it’s not about the money, it’s about the beauty and joy you get from owning that car, oh yeah, and the speed too!

It’s pretty interesting to know just how much people are willing to spend on the fastest, best, and most luxurious sports cars out there. Keep going and find out just which cars took the top 6 list for the most expensive cars of 2014.

1. Rolls Royce Phantom, Extended Wheelbase – $385,000

rollsThe first car on the list is the Rolls Royce Phantom which went for $330,000, but with the extended wheel base package, cost an extra $55,000 bringing it up to $385,000. With all of the extra features it’s easy to spend over $400,000 on this fast and luxurious automobile.

Rolls Royce has always been known for making cars that appeal to the most lavish lifestyles and are meant to exemplify power and authority; the Phantom did not at all fall short of these standards.

This may not be one of the fastest car around, but it certainly is the most opulent. Rolls Royce went above and beyond, because this baby is huge and ultra ritzy. It’s the kind of car that you hire a driver to drive you around as you make important business phone calls from the back seat, which is divided with a soundproof glass screen.

Don’t think twice about performance though because we all know that Rolls Royce engines can really put out the power and torque when they need to. It’s why they are the preferred car of choice for the business elite!


2. Porsche 918 Spyder – $845,000

porscheThis is a spectacular car and a very fine piece of engineering. The Germans really know how to make a great car! Coming in at $845,000 dollars, this is one of the most expensive cars sold in 2014. That was just the starting price without any special features, because with all of the bells and whistles it could reach well over $1 million.

It’s a very exclusive car indeed as only 918 of them were made and set for production, not surprisingly the U.S.A had accounted for over one third of the 918 orders. This awesome artwork of German engineering has a 4.6 liter V8 engine that puts out 608 horsepower.

That by itself isn’t that impressive, but combined with the dual electric motors that pump the horsepower up to 887, meaning it’s top performance wouldn’t be easily beat.

The Porsche 918 Spyder can reach 120mph/200kmph in 7.2 seconds and it has a top speed of 218mph/351kmph. This makes it one of the faster cars out there. Just like great responsibility comes with great power, with a great price comes great speed, at least when it comes to the world of luxury sports cars.

3. Hennessey Venom GT – $1.2 Million

Hennesey GTThe Hennessy Venom GT is one of the fastest accelerating cars in the world and one of the fastest cars in the world in general. This fabulous ride set the record in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the fastest accelerating car by reaching 300kmph or 186mph in just over 13 seconds.

The Hennessy supercar has a 7.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces a whopping 1’244 horsepower. Not only that, but this baby is one of the most expensive cars sold in 2014 because this very exclusive ride went for 1.2 million dollars, over all it’s more than well worth the steep price!

One of the reasons the Hennessy Venom GT is as so pricey is because it’s actually classified as a supercar, which means that it has some very special specifications and even more limited features, not to mention that these cars are always ultra-rare and swanky. This car is produced in the United Kingdom and the manufacturers plan to release only 39 of them, 13 of which have now been released.

4. Koenigsegg Agera R & S- $1.6 million

KoenigseggThis is kind of a 2 part entry because it’s kind of cheating. The original Koenigsegg Agera R was one of the most expensive cars of 2014, as the most expensive versions of this beautiful car sold for just over 1.6 million dollars. However there was an auction in 2015 recently where an Agera S model was sold for $4.5 million dollars, but that was in 2015 not 2014 and because this list is technically about 2014 this is where the Koenigsegg falls on the list.

The Agera Series made by Koenigsegg, which in case you were interested is actually a Swedish luxury car manufacturer, was named Hypercar of the year in 2010. The Agera R is also theoretically the fastest car in the world, however it has not been officially tested yet.

The top speed has been estimated to be around 440 kmph or 273 mph. This is all made possible by the 5.0 liter twin turbocharged V8 engine that pushes the speed of this car to the limits of sanity.

5. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse $2.7 Milliom

Bugatti1This supercar is a great combination of German design and engineering as well as French Assembly. Bugatti is one of the main contenders for the best and most expensive cars for sure, because the Veyron 16.4 comes in a $2.7 million and that is just the base price because with all of the possible add-ons this luxury vehicle runs at just over $3 million.

The real geniuses you have to thank for this mastery of automobile craftsmanship are actually the people of Volkswagen. Yeah that’s right, the people who created the Volkswagen beetle are also the same people who created one of the fastest and most expensive cars in the world.

While the Hennessy holds the world record for being the fastest accelerating car, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 holds the world record for being the fastest street legal car in the world. It holds an amazing record top speed of 431 kmph or 268 mph. This thing is seriously fast and even though it isn’t quite the most expensive car on this list, it certainly is the fastest by far.

6. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster – $4.5 Million

LamboItaly has not come up short in terms of fashion, luxury, and things that go vroom, and they definitely did not disappoint in 2014 when they released the most expensive luxury car of 2014, coming in at $4.5 million dollars. On a side note there is now a used model of this car for sale online for a whopping $7.4 million dollars. Trust me, it’s worth it for sure.

Of course, like we said, with a great price there comes great speed as well and the most expensive car of 2104 does not disappoint in the, “things that go insanely fast” department either. It goes from 0 to 100 kmph in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 355kmph. For those that speak in miles that is 62 and 221 miles respectively.

This super luxury car will satisfy any need for speed freak, because the V12 engine gives this baby over 750 horsepower and will win pretty much any race that you could hope to drive in, that being if street racing were legal of course! And just in case you were wondering how many Veneno Roadsters were built, the number is 9. That’s right, only 9 of these automobiles were made, talk about being rare!
