All of the rare cars are very attractive to people around the world. You don’t have to be a car lover to appreciate their beauty, uniqueness, and classic styles. These rarest cars look like they are from another planet that is the reason they are owned by all rich and famous people.
Honoring cars, special editions and prototypes are the types of cars collectors are willing to pay enormous amounts for. In this list, we have included some newest and luxury vehicles and some older and classier cars that were produced in limited numbers.
Aston Martin DBR1
It was built in 1956 and DBR1 is Aston Martin’s most valuable and sought-after vehicle to date. There were only 5 editions produced by the prestigious company and in 2017 the DBR1/1 was sold for $22.5 million which is a record for a British made car. There is another reason for its record-breaking price that is its racing ability. It is one of the only three vehicles to win both the World Sportscar Championship and Le Mans in the same year.
Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe
In the past, Bugatti was making the most luxurious cars in the world. In 1931 they made the Bugatti Royale which weighs around 7000 pounds and is 20% longer than most modern Rolls-Royces. Its reason for fame is its 12.7L engine which is still one of the largest ever created for a car. Only seven of these types were manufactured and one was sold at auction for $9.7 million.
1957 JAGUAR XKSS
The Jaguar XKSS was a road-friendly version of the Jaguar D-type race car. Only sixteen were made and only twelve are still believed to be in existence. It was originally built in 1957 and was popularized by iconic actor Steve McQueen who bought one for $5000 in 1958 and now it is worth an estimated $30 Million mainly because of who owned it. But the original XKSS model is expected to be around $1.5 to $1.6 million.

Ferrari 250 GTO
Ferrari 250 GTO was one of the most dominant sports racing cars of the 1960s powered by a V12 engine. The vehicle went on to pick up the three World Sportscar Championships between 1962 and 1964. This made 250 GTO the most valuable car in the world originally sold for $18,000 upon its introduction in 1962 but later in June 2018 auction, a 1964 250 GTO was sold for an all-time auction record of $70 million.
McLaren F1 LM
The McLaren F1 LM is a track-oriented version of the infamous McLaren F1 and is considered the original modern supercar. Six of these LM editions were built to commemorate the five McLaren F1 GTRs that competed in the 1995 24 hours of Le Mans and took four of the five top spots including first.
The car has a 6.1L, V12 engine that produces 680hp and tested 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds. Only six of these cars were made and five were sold in their original papaya paint jobs and one was auctioned in 1998 for $13.75 million.
The Maybach Exelero is a high-performance sports car made by the German manufacturers. The car was unveiled in 2005 powered by a twin-turbo V12 engine that produced 690hp, a top speed of 218mph and a 0-62 mph acceleration time of 4.4 seconds.
The Exelero costs a whopping $8 million and there is only one in the world today. In 2011, rapper Birdman purchased the vehicle but couldn’t pay for it upfront, so it remains the property of the European automaker. Maybach has always been known for its high-end luxury cars, so this one was quite a deviation from their norm.
Mansory Bugatti Veyron Linea Vivere
The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is one of the most famous and expensive supercars since its production stopped in 2015 but its Linea Vivere special edition takes it to another level. Only three of these special editions were made in white matte exterior and a redesigned hood and a modified interior.
