Most Expensive Classic Car

Classic cars is an expensive hobby where the most finest models will cost you millions of dollars. Surprisingly enough, the cars doesn’t have to be that old before the prices go skyrocketing. One of the cars in the top 5 was just 45 years old when it was sold at an auction for almost 10 million dollars.

The Silver Ghost was one of the first Rolls-Royce models to be built at the beginning of the 20th-century. One of the Silver Ghost’s was painted in aluminum paint and used to promote the reliability of Rolls-Royce cars. This one aluminum painted version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost still exist. It is insurance at $35,000,000 making it the most expensive car in the world.

The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost is epitomising all that is the very best in British engineering. Utmost attention to detail resulted in such an outstanding quality that this motor car rightfully was stated to be "the best car in the world". The first public display of the 40/50 hp model as it was called then was at London's Olympia Motor in November 1906 with deliveries commencing from April 1907. It was this model on which the company's reputation for excellence was based - not at least had added to this record non-stop run carried out by the original R-R Silver Ghost, chassis no. 60551, whose name became a more popular model designation than the company's term 40/50 hp. Steady development resulted in significant improvements in performance and handling. Production continued until 1925.
