Big Money: The Most Expensive Production Cars You Can Buy Today

On today's internet, lists of super-expensive cars are about as common as revolutionary ab-sculpting breakthroughs and ice-cream-pooping unicorns. The issue with creating a list such as this, however, is that the market is constantly in flux and rife with vaporware to boot, making it nigh impossible to separate the hype from reality.---That didn't deter us. In an attempt to draw some definitive conclusions, we’ve established a sturdy set of criteria that applies to the current marketplace, with much of the data sussed from our excellent buyer's guide resources. For starters, selections must have been produced in 2015 or 2016 and been certified for sale in the U.S. as a new vehicle. We also omitted models where the entire production run is confirmed to be sold out, eliminating some highly desirable iron including the Porsche 918 ($850,000), Ferrari LaFerrari ($1.5 million), and McLaren P1 ($1.1 million). To nip neverending debates in the bud, only base prices counted—any chump with time and piles of money to burn can option a Porsche or Range Rover to nearly double its MSRP.---Finally, we ruled out some ultra-low-volume models like the Lykan Hypersport ($3 million-plus), Koenigsegg One:1 ($2.85 million), and Pagani Huayra ($1.1 mil), as these vehicular apparitions exist in the same space where underworld chiefs circulate, meaning finding one—and we called several dealers—won't happen. For that reason, models such as these also remain on the sidelines. We also include destination charges and any gas-guzzler taxes that are known and/or applicable.--In short, this curated list represents the priciest rolling stock actually available today to anyone in America with the means.
