If there’s one thing we learned from endless MTV Cribs episodes back in the day, it’s that athletes, rock stars, and A-list celebrities are all bonded by a common interest: A love and passion for fast and expensive cars.

Automobiles

While everyone is likely familiar with expensive cars from the likes Porsche and Rolls Royce, a subset of supercars is so expensive that they even make a regular Ferrari seem affordable by comparison. At this level, we’re not talking about cars that cost somewhere in the multi-hundred thousand dollar range: quite the contrary, my friend. No, at this level, we’re talking about cars that sell for 7 figures and can easily hit 200 mph on the speedometer.

To get you acquainted with the types of cars the wealthiest in the world keep in their garages, listed below are the 8 most expensive supercars in the world.

Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – $4.85 million

Nearly $5 million for a car? Not to worry, the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is coated with diamonds. No, seriously. The Trevita sports body is a pretty awesome visual appearance due to a diamond weave white carbon fiber body.

The company boasts: “For the Trevita, Koenigsegg developed something extraordinary. This does not paint. It’s not a tint. It’s actually white carbon fiber that shines like millions of diamonds when the sun hits the car.”

Under the hood is a 4.8-liter V8 yielding, which offers up to 1018 horsepower and a top speed of 254 mph. Only two models were ever produced, so good luck finding one even if you have that much coin to waste, uh, I mean spend.

The car was highlighted by Jay Leno last year during a fascinating episode ofJay Leno’s Garage, viewable below.

With only 9 units ever made, calling the Veneno Roaster a limited edition vehicle might even be misleading. The car delivers 750 horsepower and can reach a top speed of 221 mph.

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse – $3.5 million

This car is insanely fast and can handle well at speeds exceeding 180 mph. This Bugatti can floor it at over 250 mph, and as we highlighted previously, “the only thing preventing the car from going faster than advertised is that Michelin’s hasn’t yet figured out a way to keep its tires from exploding once they reach a consistent speed of 270 mph.”

Not only is the Bugatti Veyron wildly expensive, but it’s also the most expensive car in the world to maintain. That fact, however, didn’t stop Floyd Mayweather from picking one up a few months back.

W Motors Lykan Hypersport – $3.4M

Though W Motors may not be a household name – the company was founded in Lebanon and is now based out of Dubai – its Lykan Hypersport is a supercar that impresses on all fronts. In keeping with the ‘limited edition’ motif we have going here, only 7 models of the car were ever manufactured.

For $3.4 million, you might not be surprised to learn that “each LED headlight is encrusted with 220 diamonds or a combination of any other precious or semi-precious stone chosen by the client.” Some of the other stone options include rubies, yellow diamonds, and sapphires. Also, not a surprise is that the car had a cameo appearance in the movie Furious 7.

The car has a reported top speed of 248 mph.
