The Lamborghini Veneno debuted at the Geneva International Auto Show in 2013 with a price tag of $3.9 million. It was followed by the Veneno Roadster with a price tag of $4.5 million. Nine were made, according to the website autoguide.com, and are the most expensive new cars on the market.
The website, curious about other expensive cars, recently compiled a list of the world’s 10 most expensive cars. The prices are estimates, the site reported, because manufacturers aren’t always forthcoming with prices of their exotic, limited production vehicles.
Rarities in the automotive world are always prominent during Monterey Auto Week. But exotics were nearly commonplace at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering at Quail Lodge.
More than a dozen Pagani models were on display as well as several Koenigsegg, McLaren, Lamborghini and Bugatti works of automotive art.
The Pagani showcase, situated on a raised area of the golf course, attracted more attention than other vehicles. Only about 40 Pagani models are made per year. The carbo fiber vehicles are impressive in many ways, most notably the car’s power and weight.
The AMG-sourced Huaryra Roadster is equipped with a V12 twin-turbo engine with 764 horsepwer and weighs only 2,822 pounds. The coupe is 176 pounds heavier.
Here’s list of current top most expensive new vehicles:

Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta: $2.1-Million
Pagani Huayra Roadster: $2.4-Million
Pagani Huayra BC: $2.5-Million
