Cars have become a basic necessity, and for most people a car is something you need to commute on a regular basis. You need a car to travel everyday to college, work, or go anywhere else. Most people are satisfied with a basic car that they have, but when it comes to rich people you need a vehicle that does more than just satisfy your needs. Rich people prefer supercars, simply because of the thrill it provides.
In 2017, the international car sales reached 79.6 million. Toyota has the biggest market share in the automobile industry and it accounts for 9.2% of total sales. Volkswagen closely follows them, then Ford, then Honda, and Nissan. Hyundai, Chevrolet, Kia, Renault, BMW, Volvo and Mercedes are other top international car makers. The British company Rolls-Royce and the German companies Porsche, Mercedes, Audi and BMW are the manufacturers of premium cars in the global passenger car market.
The evolution of technology tends to interrupt the car market every now and then. Especially after Tesla unveiled their self-driving cars. There are some electric cars that can compete with top end supercars, so no-one knows what the next trend in the automobile industry will be.
Keeping that in mind, we’ve done some research and created a list of the world’s most expensive supercars of 2022.
