Car enthusiasts drool over the mention of certain cars, even though they know they will never get to drive them. Cars like Ferrari, Maserati, and Bugatti, are all beyond the normal motorist, but that doesn’t mean that we cannot dream. But what do the owners of these cars drool over? They already own machines that have super performance and stunning looks, so what else could they possibly want? Here are some of the cars that I would imagine even these owners would covet; their rarity and exclusivity make them the most desirable cars on the planet.
1961 Ferrari 250GT Spyder
This classic looking car from Ferrari is ultra-sleek and beautiful. When it was built in 1961 it was considered the cream of automotive design, and was owned by the playboys and car aficionados of the day. This is a car that would still be wondrous to own now, although getting your hands on one could be a problem, as only 36 of them were ever built. The last one that sold once belonged to James Coburn, a super cool actor that suited the car perfectly, and went for a super cool price of $10.9 million
1931 Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe
I love this car, but unfortunately have to live with the fact that I will never own one. The shape is a classic of its day, but for some reason this car gives the impression that it is the only car ever designed like it, and at 15 feet long and powered by a 12.7 liter engine it probably was. Only six of these Bugatti’s were built making them unbelievably rare, and the last person who found one he could buy had to pay $9.7 million; and that was 26 years ago.
Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang
You would think that a car costing $3 million would take a while to sell, but all of the Bugatti Veyron Pur Sangs that were available sold in less than 24 hours. The Bugatti Veron was a landmark motorcar that left manufacturers like Pagini and Koenigsegg in its wake, and this special model has only enhanced the cars image. With performance figures that include 0-100km/h and back to zero in less than 5 seconds, the 5 Bugatti Veyron Pur Sangs that were built will be an astonishing drive as well as a sound investment for their owners.
Koenigsegg have established themselves as designers and builders of super super-cars, and this must be their ultimate design. Even though this car runs on ethanol, it will travel from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds and will fly along at 402 km/h. The $2.21 million price tag would make purchasers themselves rare enough, but the fact that only 3 will ever be made makes the car even rarer than the prospective buyers.
The chances are that you and I will never be able to buy these cars, but there is something comforting about the fact that hardly anybody else will be able to either. Like a painting of some futuristic super-vehicle, these cars should be a fantasy and not actually parked in our garages. Unless of course somebody offers me one.
