World's Most Expensive Cars in 2006
live in a time where gas prices force many
families to think twice about driving to
the local store, but high fuel costs shouldn't
concern the buyers of the cars below. The
Forbes business magazine has put together
a list of the top ten most expensive cars
in the world. The luxury cars are all street
legal, even if they look more comfortable
on a race track.
1. Bugatti Veyron
At number is the impressive Bugatti Veyron
from France. The worlds most expensive car
has a price of €1,000,000 or $1,192,057
USD. The Bugatti Veyron not only claims
the title of the most expensive street legal
car in the world, but also the fastest and
most powerful car in the world. The super
car reaches speeds of more than 400km or
250 mph and was named after the French racing
driver Pierre Veyron. The 16 cylinders and
1001 horsepower engine should ensure that
pulling into gas stations will be something
of a regular occurrence on your Sunday outings.
2. Pagani Zonda Roadster F C12S 7.3
The Clubsport version of the Italian/Argentinean
Pagina Roadster comes in second place with
a price of $667,321 USD. The price will
give you 650 hp and car that looks like
it should be on a racing track. Pagani is
a small boutique supercar builder that makes
very few cars each year, so your neighbor
probably won't have one.
3. SSC Ultimate Aero
An American car maker comes in at number
3 with a supercar that sells for the super
cost of $654,500 USD. Shelby Super Cars
(SSC) out of Washington State say that their
Ultimate Aero can reach speeds of 273 mph
on the track.
4. Leblanc Mirabeau
Out of Switzerland comes the Leblanc Mirabeau
with a price tag of $645,084. The Leblanc
Mirabeau would not look out of place on
the set of a Batman movie nor competing
at Le Mans.
5. Saleen S7 Twin Turbo
The second American car on the top ten list
is the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo with a cost
of $637,723. The Californian based automakers
have tweaked the V8 engine to reach 750
hp and do zero to sixty miles per hour in
under three seconds.
6. Koenigsegg CCR
A 2-door roadster made in Sweden comes in
sixth with an asking price of $545,568.
The Swedish supercar will get you to 62
mph in 3.2 seconds with its 806 hp V8.
7. Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

the world to make the list is the Mercedes-Benz
SLR McLaren. It comes in at $452,750 and
is also the first car on the most expensive
list to actually look like a street legal
car. The Mercedes SLR McLaren could still
handle itself on a race track with a zero
to sixty mph time of 3.4 seconds.
8. Maybach 62
For those that are looking for a more luxurious
set of wheels to look important in, comes
the Maybach 62 at $448,153.

the Maybach 62 for the wealthy that like
their luxury ride to also have a sporty
look about it. The $430,355 price tag places
