Written by Danny P Ocean on November 25, 2013
Do you have a couple million dollars to spare? If so, you can explore this list of the top 10 most luxurious and expensive cars as a serious buyer. But back in reality, most of us will just read on in gaping-mouthed admiration. The below cars are incredible, fine-tuned machines with performance grades that just qualify as legal. Some of them have had production runs of less than 50, but they are all street legal—in other words, they are all real cars you could find in the street, if anyone had the guts to drive these masterpieces and not just place them behind a bullet-proof shield.

This is. Bugatti.com reports that the Veyron is the fastest street-legal car in existence, reaching 60 mph at 2.5 seconds. For safety’s sake, the car comes built-in with a Formula 1 safety engine to counterbalance against its 1,000 horsepower engine. The car can be yours for $2.4 million.

The Landaulet is the dark horse of the list. It is substantially lesser known than the sportier cars here, but it has a luxurious rich-man feel about it.

This vehicle will set you back $970,000, reports World’s Richest Man. The F1 reaches 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, and it has that classic lift-door appeal famously coined by Lamborghini. Radical-looking, high performance Nitto tires perfectly accompany the McLaren F1.

You can find an entry-level Porsche sitting in any parking lot, but the $845,000 Spyder is a harder find. The vehicle was released as recently as Sept. 18 after Porsche received extensive pressure from fans interested in seeing it move to production. The vehicle is also seeing a production run of 918, which is surprisingly high given its price and grade, details Porsche.com.
