The rarest, the fastest, the finest – here is the list of all the cars that enthusiasts want to get their hands on.
These are the rarest cars you can find in the world today.
Unfortunately, rare cars are like diamonds in a dozen. You really have to look hard for one of them.
Their owners have discarded most of them, but these ultra-rare cars now command a price tag that matches the prices of houses on the Billionaires Boulevard in West London. Let’s check out these rare cars one by one.
1. 1970 Porsche 917K
It is one of the fastest cars in the market. It commands the status of legend among the carmakers of today. It is rare and requires a delightful hand.
The 1970 Porsche 917K is currently the most sought-after car. It has an ideal design and a light-weight body that is completely aerodynamic.
Take a look at it. You can tell how it is different from your standard sports car. This 50-year-old sports car can beat the fastest cars of today.
Porsche only built a limited number of Porsche 917K vehicles. So, you won’t find many of these even in the car museums.
2. 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
The Ferrari built only 48 of these Ferrari 250 GTO models. That’s why it is one of the rarest cars in the world right now. It was designed to be a sports car, but it was later used as a luxury car by the millionaires.
The car is now a part of various car museums and bears a price tag of $ 48.8 million.
The car has a V12 engine and came with a 3,000CC engine. It is no longer available for sale.
3. 1957 Jaguar XKSS
The 1957 Jaguar XKSS is a classic car that was first sold for $5,000 in 1957. Today, it cost a whopping $30 million.
It also has a limited number of produced units. Because the car is over 60 years old, its units are hard to find even in the museums.
Only a few collectors today possess the 1957 Jaguar XKSS car. The buzz in the auto market is that Jaguar will produce the 1957 XKSS cars again soon. If they do, this will bring the price down from $30 million. Jaguar aims to produce a total of nine more XKSS units.
4. 1948 Aston Martin 2-liter Sports DB1
Aston Martin DB1 marked the shift from luxury cars to DB1 for Aston Martin, catering to the James Bond movies.
The DB1 is one of the rarest sports cars in the market, and it is also the first of the DB series. The person behind the Aston Martin 2-liter Sports DB1 was Sir David Brown.
His reason for a limited number of Aston Martin DB series cars led to eventual price growth, and that’s why the Aston Martin 2-liter Sports DB1 today costs over $30million.
5. 1953 Jaguar XK120-C
Only 53 of 1953 Jaguar XK120-C car models are available in the market today. Some of them are in bad shape or have their parts worn out.
It was the only car built with a light tubular framework and aerodynamic body. It is also considered to be one of the rarest Jaguar cars in the market. Each 1953 Jaguar XK120-C carries a hefty price tag of $13million. It is also one of the most expensive Jaguar cars ever sold.
6. 1998 McLaren F1 LM – $13.75 Million
If you have played Need for Speed, you would know how remarkable the McLaren F1 car is. It is considered a modern supercar, and only has 11 variants available. Five of these were the McLaren F1 GTR cars, while the rest are commemorative models.
In 1995, McLaren F1 GTR won the ‘24 Hours of Le Mans’ Grand Prix. McLaren F1 filled four out of the first five spots. One of these cars was sold in 1998 for a price of $13.75 million.
There are chances that the price of McLaren F1 would have shot up by almost 50% from that time. It is currently not on sale.
7. 1962 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato

8. 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California SWB Spider

Even these insane amounts do not deter collectors from taking the bidding prices a level up.
