Luxury and expense usually go hand in hand, yet sometimes there are other factors that can make something cost more. Rarity has long been a standard in determining the most expensive cars — many of which are destined to be displayed in a collection rather than actually driven. Old, rare cars can sell for astounding amounts of money and those figures can go even higher when the car is on the auction block. That’s where the thrill of competition can raise the final price of a vehicle.
Back in 2013, it was a classic Mercedes Benz race car that earned the distinction of the world’s most expensive car. On July 12, 2013 an anonymous bidder paid $29.6 million (USD) for a 1954 Mercedes-Benz w196.
Fast forward to 2014 when a new record holder was crowned. In August of last year a 1962 Ferrari 2500 GTO Berlinetta sold for a staggering $38.1 million (USD).
