Most Expensive Car in the World Spotted on Zagreb Streets

CroatiaOne of the most expensive cars ever to be produced in the world, the Lykan Hypersport, has been spotted cruising the streets of the Croatian capital…

At US$3.4 million, the Lykan Hypersport is the third most expensive car to ever be made, behind the limited (four created, three sold) Lamborghini Veneno (US$4.5 million), and the Maybach Exelero (US$8 million). The Lykan Hypersport is over US$1 million more expensive than the Bugatti Veyron Supersport, which holds the title of most expensive production car in the world, and was photographed by a commuter in Zagreb recently. The car is currently in the possession of Rimac Automobili, the Samobor company behind the world’s first electric super car the Concept One.

“Ha, ha I do not have that much money to but it. We are working on a project for another company so I can not talk more about it,” Mate Rimac told daily 24sata who published photos of the car in Zagreb.

The Lykan Hypersport is powered by a twin turbo flat-six  3.7-litre engine, producing 552 kW  and 960 N·m of torque.The car is claimed to have a top speed of 390 km/h (240 mph) and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 2.8 seconds. The cause of the car’s expensive price tag is due to its included options. It is the first car to have diamonds in its headlights. The front lights are made up of titanium LED blades with 420 diamonds (15cts). The buyer can choose which rubies and diamonds they want embedded in the headlights. In addition, the client can choose between a selection of rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds, or sapphires to be integrated into the vehicle at purchase. The Lykan is available in Lykan White, Royal Red, Royal Blue or Black.
