The Top 15 Most Expensive Cars on Earth

For some people, a vehicle is just a tool. That can be true if you drive a pickup used for hauling or towing, or if you drive a sedan that gets you to and from the office and ferries around groceries and kids. For other people, a car is more than a mere implement of daily life; it is part of life’s very essence. For the moneyed and vehicular-inclined individual, a car can be a piece of artwork, a symbol of power and even an object of affection. Any serious collector with serious wealth would be proud to add one of these on our list of the most expensive cars.
