6 of the most expensive cars auctioned off this year

RM Sotheby’s raked in US$30.4 million (S$42.251 million) in sales during its annual Arizona Car Week in January.

    (Sold for US$2.37 million)

    Seeing a Pagani in the wild is a lot like witnessing an eclipse of any variety. It happens so rarely that you’ll remember the day you saw it, and have ample photographic and video documentation to act as exhibits to your story. Horacio Pagani unveiled his first-ever hypercar under the Pagani badge in 1999. He christened it Zonda. The Huayra, named after the Quechua wind god Huayra-tata, is his second and was unveiled in 2011. Six years later, Pagani showcased the open-top roadster version. The carmaker has announced plans to move towards electrification for its future automobiles, so the Huayra Roadster might just be the final and ultimate expression of a pure internal combustion engine pushed to the limits. Only 100 units were made, all of which have been sold.
