Most Expensive Car Ever
For those that have more money than they can ever spend, looking for a way to buy the ultimate everything must be difficult. The most expensive car ever is made to help fulfill that need to have the best of the best. For the purposes of this article, we are not talking about classics or auctions – this is the most expensive car ever offered from the factory.
The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is a car that can definitely complete all of those checkbox items. “Trevita” is a word that means nothing in English, but in Swedish it is an abbreviation that translates into “three whites”. The car is called that due to a breakthrough in technology regarding the visible carbon weave bodywork. Prior to this car, the only color and style option for carbon fiber was a charcoal black pattern. Koenigsegg developed a new and unique coated fiber solution that transforms the traditional black fibers into a sparkling and silvery white. When the sunlight hits the body panels, they sparkle, and it looks like it is covered by millions of tiny white diamonds. This is due to this new process that is unique to this car.
Other Unique Features
The Trevita also features other unique features, such as a double carbon rear wing, inconell nickel-chromium-based superalloy exhaust system, carbon ceramic brakes, paddle shifter, chrono instrument cluster, infotainment system, and hydraulic lifting system. The car was originally built to be one of only 3 collectible limited editions, meant to showcase what Koenigsegg can do. However, they decided to go even more ridiculous, and make only 2 of these. If you were planning on rushing out to buy one, I am afraid you are too late. The most expensive car ever made is already sold out.
