Top Ten Rarest Cars in the World

Have you ever seen a vintage car or a supercar running on the road? It might be fascinating to see such beauties on the road for the people who love cars and who collect cars. There are people who like cars, then there are car collectors, and finally, those auto treasures that even the most wealthy motoring enthusiasts can only dream of, no matter how many millions they’re willing to spend. These are the auto-unicorns, which are so rare that they might as well not exist at all. Nonetheless, they do. I’ve chosen ten of the world’s rarest automobiles. Comment which one you like.

The World’s Ten Most Valuable Automobiles

1927 Royale Bugatti

The Royale came before the Veyron. And that was quite the beast. Ever the dreamer, Ettore Bugatti envisioned the most luxurious car in the world – one of the rarest cars – with 25 manufactured to be offered almost exclusively to royalty, of which there were far more in the 1920s. Due to the Great Depression, just seven films were produced. Six are still alive since Bugatti is said to have wrecked the seventh. The radiator cap has a stylized elephant.

1953 Porsche 550 Spyder 

Every film enthusiast will tell you that the 550 Spyder is the Porsche in which James Dean died when it crashed on the route to a racetrack. This grim story has imbued every 550 Spyder with an aura that makes them all the more desirable and likely to be replicated. Only 90 cars were built then, and all were intended to compete. They won class at the Le Mans 24-hour race and the gruelling Mexican Carrera Panamericana, which gave its name to subsequent fast Porsches. This is the pinnacle of fatal glamour.

1957 Jaguar XKSS 

Jaguar’s racing D-Type was all-conquering in its day, winning the Le Mans 24-Hour race on multiple occasions. The XKSS was its road-going cousin, designed by Jaguar head Sir William Lyons, to use surplus D-Type chassis after the British automaker exited motor racing. Only 25 were planned, but only 16 were completed when a manufacturing fire destroyed the other nine. Jaguar has now produced those nine in a so-called continuation series. The super-rare automobiles sold promptly for around $1 million each.

1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato 

Zagato is an Italian coachbuilder that aims to restyle and improve current high-end sports cars. Their work on the beautiful DB4 resulted in an exquisite, curving super-light GT with several weight-saving materials like perspex and aluminium. Bumpers were deemed unnecessary. Zagato intended to build 25 of these British/Italian super-GTs, but due to low demand, only 20 were built. Many replicas exist: prepare to pay $18 million for the original and then bask in the perfection of this ultra-rare auto-sculpture.

1970 Porsche 917 

The 917 was released in the 1970s and remained one of the most successful car racers of all time – probably one of the most recognizable. Built without compromise for the track, it won the Le Mans 24-Hour race for Porsche and gained additional recognition when driven by Steve McQueen in the ‘Le Mans’ film. Porsche still owns many 917s and keeps them running as museum pieces. Although the 917 is not the best automobile for a shopping run, three have been modified for road use. Form naturally follows function.

1986 Testarossa Spider by Ferrari

The Testarossa was a tribute to the 1980s, a broad-shouldered supercar that preferred side-finned bravado above elegance. At the time, the Fiat corporation owned Ferrari, and its chairman, Gianni Agnelli, decided to own his Testarossa, but without the roof. The Italian manufacturer compiled and re-engineered the Testarossa to be sturdy enough to be a convertible. The colour scheme was clear because Ag is the silver chemical symbol and the first letters of Agnelli’s name. The prancing horse logo is present, correct, and in genuine silver. Beware of forgeries: only one Testarossa Spider was produced.

1989 Cizeta-Moroder V16T 

Giorgio Moroder is not just a disco legend, with his work with Donna Summer effectively defining the genre, but also a vehicle enthusiast. He saw early concepts for a supercar by Lamborghini Countach designer Marcello Gandini and wanted to be a part of the project. The Cizeta changed to Cizeta-Moroder, powered by an almost unbelievable bespoke V16 engine. The motoring partners split up, and just one Cizeta – out of nine – was labelled a Cizeta-Moroder, purchased by the king of disco himself. This one-of-a-kind automobile just sold for slightly more than $1.2 million. Guess what’s playing on the car stereo?

1995 McLaren F1 LM 

Gordon Murray’s seminal design for the McLaren F1 was notably free of financial limitations. Because gold is the best at deflecting heat, it was used to line engine bays. The F1 is still one of the quickest production vehicles ever, and the LM version is even faster. Six LMs were built as road-going homage after the racing version, the F1 GTR, achieved remarkable success in the famed French event. McLaren kept one LM, giving you five to select from, all in the firm’s characteristic Papaya orange.

2009 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita 

Supercar eccentrics from Sweden Koenigsegg only produces a few automobiles. A hundred of a specific model is extremely rare. When it comes to the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, that number has dropped slightly: only two were produced, solidifying its place as one of the world’s rarest cars. Trevita means “three whites” in Swedish and refers to a specific procedure that gives the CCXR’s raw black carbon fiber body a brilliant diamond-like gloss. The procedure was not unique to Koenigsegg but was also exceedingly costly. Floyd Mayweather reportedly sold his for more than $2.5 million.

2013 Lamborghini Veneno 

Not only was it a super-rare Lamborghini – just four coupes and nine roadsters were built – but it was also a hefty sum: $3.8m when it debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013 to commemorate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary. The Veneno is a racing prototype that is also road-legal, meaning its superior aerodynamics are designed for the track rather than your local A-road. The foundation is Lamborghini’s already formidable Aventador, with a top speed of more than 220 mph. All were quickly sold out, with one reserved for Lamborghini’s museum. Not for people who want to avoid being seen.

Who isn’t fascinated by cars? I still get amazed to see Vintage Cars, Super Cars, and Luxury Cars engineered to perform. These were a few rarest cars in the world. There are more out there. You need to look out for them. You can see them on the roads if you are lucky enough. Don’t forget to capture them!
