Johannesburg – Wonder what you’d ever do with those lottery winnings? Any petrolhead will naturally lay down the money on a dream car, but would it be a luxury limo or a tar-rippling supercar? To help you decide, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten most expensive cars you can buy in South Africa right now.
1. Lamborghini Aventador LP740-4 S coupe – R7 488 888
The honour of the most expensive car in our price list goes to this Italian supercar, which evokes the spirit of the Miura, Countach, Diablo and Murcielago with its outrageous styling and ballistic performance. Capable of 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds and topping out at 352km/h, the normally-aspirated V12 revs to 8500rpm and sounds like war being waged.
ENGINE: mid mounted 6.5-litre V12 – 544kW and 690Nm
2. Bentley Mulsanne EWB (extended wheelbase) – R7 384 000
The Mulsanne is the flagship of the Bentley range and represents everything the British brand knows about building some of the world’s most powerful, most luxurious cars.
But just in case a standard R6.15-million Mulsanne isn’t good enough, this stretched version adds an additional 250mm of rear legroom, airline-style extending legrests and a rear compartment sunroof. The Mulsanne is also available in a R6.8-million Speed derivative with power bumped up to 395kW and 1100Nm.
ENGINE: front mounted 6.8-litre V8 turbo, 377kW and 1020Nm
