Koenigsegg Trevita tops Forbes 2010 list of world’s most expensive cars


Spending the six-figure sum on a supercar means ultimate pleasure and indulgence for the affluent. This year’s Forbes list introduces us to the meanest and most expensive cars that money can buy. Let’s do a little countdown from No.3 which also happens to be taken by Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster for $1.8 million. The street legal version of the Zonda R features a Mercedes Benz AMG built 678-horsepower engine and only five of them will be made. Standing at No.2 position is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport which retails for $2 million and produced in a limited edition of 150 cars only. Any guesses about the super car that tops the list? It is the ultra-luxe Koenigsegg Trevita at a retail price of $2.21 million and features the best technology that a supercar could offer, like a hydraulic lift system, tire monitoring system, chrono instrument cluster, and carbon fiber brakes. To maintain its exclusivity, only three of these will be ever made.

The list also compiles other cars in the range of $300,000 and above. Automakers that had the potential to take the top spot are Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Leblanc, Maserati, Maybach, Mercedes-Benz, Pagani, Porsche, Rolls Royce, Saleen, Shelby Super cars and Spykar.
The list does not include cars like the $653,000 Ferrari Enzo and the $500,000 Mercedez-Benz SLR Mc Laren Roadster which are no more in production. There is a lot of similarity between last year’s list and this year’s list; however Koenigsegg, Bugatti and Lamborghini still produce the world’s most expensive vehicles.
