If I have a lot of money...


I would want a sweet ride. However, I wouldn't get a Lamborghini or Ferrari. I'd rather get myself a Rolls Royce. Or maybe a vintage Jaguar Roadster.

 Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe

Imagine me driving that on the highway, the wind in my hair, the weather's just right and everybody's stunned by my blue body paint. Either blue or shimmery gold with shimmery silver on the front and rims. Yeah, I love gold. It brings out the "goddess" in you. Please, indulge in my dream.

But then, if you've got real deep pockets, these are some cars that you should seriously look out for. Here are the Top 10 Expensive Cars in the World 2010.

  • Koenigsegg Trevita 2010 price is $2.21 Million
Koenigsegg is a Swedish brand. With only three cars produced, the name "Trevita" suits it very well because in Swedish it means "three whites". The three cars are fully equipped with Koenigsegg Shimmering Diamond Weave bodywork, double carbon wing, paddle-shift, inconell exhaust system, carbon ceramic brakes with ABS, hydraulic lifting system, infotainment system, tyre monitoring system, chrono instrument cluster and airbags. Trevita has new shimmering diamond carbon fiber finish. Under the hood Koenigsegg placed the same 1018bhp engine. Very special on this model is the exterior paint fully developed at Koenigsegg headquarters.


  •  Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport 2010 price is $2 Million

It is powered by a 8.0 L W16 engine with carbon fiber elements and two air intakes that allows cool air for the cooling of the engine and the front wheels. The final output power released by the engine is 987 bhp and 927 lb-ft torque. Maximum speed of the car is 407 km/h. The car features an open top that can be opened or closed within a few seconds and when it is in closed position, it provides a large luggage space.

  • Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster 2010 price is $1.8 Million

That tremendous amount of power lets the rocket ship inspired vehicle to sprint to 60 MPH (96.56 km/h) from a standstill in just 3.4 seconds and hit 200 km/h in under ten seconds and it won’t stop until it reaches a top speed of 217 MPH (349.22 km/h).

A state-of-the-art, fiberoptic network is the backbone of all multimedia components and offers precise, high-speed communication among these components. A lifetime subcription to SIRIUS Satellite Radio is included with every Maybach. The Maybach Landaulet study is powered by the uprated V12 engine that Maybach engineers developed for the Maybach 57 S and Maybach 62 S.

  • SSC Ultimate Aero 2010 price is $740,000
Shelby SuperCars company are the brainchildren of Jerod Shelby who started building exotic old replicas model of Ferrari and Lamborghini. They teamed up with Aero and built their Ultimate Aero which is the fastest production car in the world, with a recorded speed of 256 mph (411.99 km/h). It dethroned the long seated Bugatti Veyron and shocked the entire world. This baby can go from 0 – 60 in just 2.7 secs. It has a twin-turbo V8 Enginer and a mind blowing 1183 horse power. However, though this may be the fastest car in the world but it doesn’t have basic safety and control mechanism like ABS brakes and traction control. So, think very carefully before you buy this one.

Although the super cars above might be very interesting to some, but I think I'll still settle with a Rolls Royce (dreaming again). I don't need to spend so much on a car. The rest of my money I should use to heal the world instead. Nothing wrong in dreaming right?

Ya, I love the Maybach too. Have you watched Sex and the City 2? Love the Maybachs! I agree with you, both the Phantom and Maybach ni besar so kalau with driver, looks more expensive la. Tapi macam the Phantom I chose at the top tu, I love it coz it's Coupe, so top can open. I love these kinda cars! :-D

Whoaa.....Love all of em'.  But I'm more of a a "Hot-Rod" or "Overhaulin'" kindda guy. So if my pockets ran really deep. Hell Yeah! I'm gonna custom all my rides. 8-)

Oh man.. Thanx Bella. You just inspired me to write another post.

Bella Enveeus said...

I think most guys are like that. Boys and their toys - right? :-P I think ladies, once they get a nice looking car they don't really care about the rest i.e. want to put body kit or rims or whatever. Especially if the car is already sexy or hot to begin with.

Oh glad I inspired you. HEHE.. :-)
