About This Quiz

For most of us, a regular run-of-the-mill car is all we can expect to drive during our lifetime. You know, a mainstream model that gets us from A to B, is relatively fuel efficient and offers mind-numbingly boring numbers when it comes to performance.

For those with cash to burn so to speak, cars with a little more pedigree, that offer a little bit more excitement and are infinitely better to look at are far, far more expensive.

While most of us can only drool over these hypercars or vintage classics, other get to feel the exhilaration of driving in one.  So in this quiz, we want to test your knowledge about some of the most expensive cars in the world. Some cost a pretty penny straight out the box. These are mostly the hypercars that belong to many well-known brands as well as some young and upcoming upstarts, shall we say.

Others in our quiz are vintage classics from a bygone era that may not offer the performance of a hypercar but come with bucket loads of prestige and class.

So put on your thinking cap or perhaps your racing helmet. One image is all you will see to base your answer on.

Good luck!

So good they named it twice ... well sort of! Another hypercar with breathtaking (or is that neck-breaking) acceleration, the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta reaches 62mph from a standing start in around 3 seconds. Hand over up to $2.2 million to experience it, however.

The Bugatti Chiron’s 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine produces 1,500 brake horsepower. Its $2.9 million price tag will cause heart palpitations for your bank manager! It's probably worth it to travel at 261 mph though.

A true classic from the '50s, the 300 SL started life as a racing car in 1952 but soon became a production car in 1954 as a two-door coupe. The 300 SL became instantly recognizable thanks to its gullwing doors. Just over 3,200 of the coupe and roadster were built up until 1963. These vehicles are snapped up at auction whenever they are available including one in 2012 for $4.62 million.

The most expensive ever veteran car sold at auction, a Rolls-Royce 10 hp two-seater sold for $7.2 million at auction in 2007. Produced between 1904 and 1906, only 16 were ever made.

Powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine, The Lagonda Taraf (silly name Aston Martin, silly name) will take you from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. You could have one if you have $1 million lying around.

Rolls-Royce doesn't make poor cars do they? And the Phantom Serenity is a stunner! And inside ... pure luxury! It is powered by a monster V12 engine but should you want to hear it roar, you need to cough up $1 million.

A V12 engine which produces 800-horsepower is the driving force behind the Aston Martin Vulcan. Not only does it cost $2.3 million to own one, but Aston Martin sends you on a special driving course before they hand it over to you.

With an engine that pushes out 1.163 brake horsepower, it is easy to see why any car nut with the cash wants to bay a Zenvo TS1 GT (despite its silly name). Powered by a 5.8-liter V8 engine with not one but two superchargers, the TS1 will cost around $1.2 million.
