These are extremely rare and only an estimated 500 were ever created.
4.Mercedes Maybach Exelero- 8 Million
Mercedes Benz are known for having some affordable vehicles but unless you got about 8 million in the bank, you likely won’t be able to get their most expensive option. Maybach is a sub-brand of mercedes and their known for their high performance super vehicles such as this. The design was supposed to be a modern interpretation of racecars used in the 1930’s.They were eventually unveiled in 2005 in Berlin and if you adjusted for inflation, it would have been worth about 10 million at that time. It’s rather heavy and weighs in at 2 and ⅔ tons and can reach a max speed of 218 miles an hour. It’s 0 to 60 time comes in at 4.4 seconds..

Cars can certainly get more expensive as time goes by and the Jaguar D-type from the 1950’s is certainly one fo them! This jag was specifically designed in order to win the 24 hour Le Mans race in france between 1954 to 1957. Aviation technology was integrated with automobile technology to make it as aerodynamic as possible. This photo here shows the winning automobile of the 1957 le mans 24 hour race and was fitted with a blue metallic paint job. Back in the 60’s no one had any idea how much they’d be worth in the future, selling them for anywhere from 3 to 5,000 dollars. They were all probably couldn’t sleep at night when they found out that a Jaguar D-type sold for 19.8 million dollars at a sotheby’s auction house. Only about 87 of them were produced, so definitely a pretty old and rare vehicle. This gave birth to the E-type jaguar which was a very popular car during the roaring 60’s and 70’s and featured in Austin Powers as the Shaguar! Jag E types might still fetch a high price but only a miniscule fraction of it’s older relative.
2.Aston Martin DBR1 –
There are some other ferraris that are capable of making the top part of the list but for a good variety, let’s go ahead and add this Aston martin from 1956. If you thought that last one was worth a lot, wait until you hear this! The aston Martin DBR1 set the record for the most expensive British-made car in August of 2017 where it sold for an astonishing 22.5 Million. It has a few similiarities as the jaguar previously mentioned. It was designed with the intent of winning the 1959 Le Mans 24 hour race which required some serious endurance not only for the car but for the driver as well as you can imagine. It’s one of only a few cars to ever win both the world sports car championship as well as the Le Mans.
