If you’re the owner of a quality car insurance policy, it means you have at least one set of wheels. Car collectors and petrol heads come in all shapes and sizes, each with their own, unique preferences in autos.
That being said, there are some models that even the most dedicated (and richest) car collectors will find impossible to get their hands on. These range from classic cars to limited edition contemporary sports cars. Cuuver.com has done some research into which are the most elusive motors, so here are five of the rarest cars in the world.
1961 Ferrari 250 GT California SWB Spider
If you’ve seen the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, you might remember the gorgeous coupe sports car, which is extremely similar to this model.
Aside from being a classic Ferrari, which will bump up the price tag whatever model, the SWB Spider is so sought after because there were only around 55 of them ever made. Not only are they extremely scarce, they’re also expensive. One was recently auctioned in America for $17.2 million.
This dream car was created in 1954 and was purchased in 2005 for $3.24 million. Embracing the stylish surfer, tailfin look of the 1950s, the F-88 has a fibreglass body and can get up to 250 horsepower.
A one of a kind, it’s unlikely you’ll be adding this model to your collection any time soon, although you can go and see it in the flesh if you pay a visit to the Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum, where it is currently on display.
2013 Pagani Zonda Revolucion
If you scour the world over, you might be extremely lucky and stumble across one of the five Pagani Zonda Revolucions ever made. The final model of the Zonda range, it boasts 800 horsepower, making it a sports car to be reckoned with.
Pagani’s website lists this model at €2.2 million.
Bugatti Type 41 Royale Kellner Coupe
If you’ve got a spare $10 million, you might want to consider investing in a Bugatti Type 41 Royale. Only six models of this car were ever made – and only three were sold when they were first produced. The fact that they cost $30,000 during the Great Depression, it’s unsurprising they were hard to shift.
However, shortly after the millennium, Forbes wrote that the Type 41’s value had soared to $10m; this is backed up by one selling for over nine-million dollars in the late 80s.
2016 Icona Vulcano Titanium
This supercar is the kind of thing James Bond might invest in, just for the protection that’s bound to come with owning a titanium car.
The Icona Vulcano Titanium is also a one-off car, which cost $3.8 million back in 2013. The body was hammered into place, by hand, and took one-thousand hours to complete. Time is money.
