Top Ten: Cars for Billionaires

10.  Mercedes Benz G63 AMG 6×6


The best word to describe this car? Ridiculous seems to fit the bill.

Produced on a limited basis and priced at £370,000, it’s perhaps the largest and most insane road legal car on the planet. Despite its size, it will do 0-60mph in less than 6 seconds thanks to its supercharged 6.3 litre engine.

9. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse


Unveiled in 2012, and kicking out 1200bhp, the Grand Sport Vitesse was the show-stopper at the geneva motor show.

This Veyron has a finely balanced 7.9 litre 16 cylinder Bugatti engine. Despite weighing nearly 2 tons, unlimited it will surpass 255mph and will exceed 60mph in under 2.6 seconds.

8. Ferrari Testarossa


This modern classic sports a 4.9 litre Ferrari flat 12 cylinder engine and will do 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds…. But who cares. Sure the Testarossa is fast, but the reason this late 80’s early 90’s model is fetching up to £300,000 is because of its timeless look, beautifully simple profile and charm. Just watch this.

7. Lamborghini Veneno


The veneno has been put into production to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th birthday. This car suggests no mid-life crisis however. Its 739bhp, 220mph top speed and permanent 4-whell drive twinned with the wackiest Lamborghini design since the Countach means this will go down as one of the greatest Italian sports cars ever.

6. Rolls-Royce Phantom


Perhaps the classiest cars in existence. Combining tradition style with modern luxuries. The archetypal Billionaires car…. Need I say more?

5. Zonda Cinque Roadster


For a $1.8million price tag, you should be expecting an incredible car. The Zonda delivers. A 678bhp AMG tuned engine surrounded in a lightweight chassis and carbon fibre body makes this car eye waveringly fast. 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, up to 125mph in 9.6 not stopping until it reaches 217mph.

Like the look of this model? Well you’d better be quick or resourceful. Only 5 will be produced.

4.Lamborghini Countach


Ok, I’m biased, this car has everything you want from a supercar. It’s a head turner. It looks good, it looks fast. The fact it was badly made and isn’t actually that speedy doesn’t matter. I mean, just look at it. You could expect to spend unto £400,000  on a model like this silver one. Money well spent.

3. Maybach Landaulet


The German Rolls-Royce, hailing from the same factory as Mercedes-Benz. Discreet, classy, sleek. The perfect car if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t want to draw attention.

2. Elemment Palazzo


Perhaps the most luxurious way to travel. The Palazzo stretches over 30ft in length and includes underfloor heating, a bar, en-suite bedroom and a beefy price tag of £2million.

1. Midnight Rider


Not really a car… But the longest heaviest limousine in existence.
