The most expensive car in the world lands in Singapore

Four Lamborghini Reventons, the world's most expensive car, have been snapped up by local buyers -- driving them is another matter altogether

They cost a mind-blowing S$2.1 million each and only 15 of them will be made, of which four will belong to Singapore supercar enthusiasts. The first of four Lamborghini Reventon Roadsters has landed on these shores, according to The Straits Times.

At €1.1 million (S$2.1 million), this ultimate open-top supercar blows the previous top-dollar drive, the Bugatti Veyron (S$1.9 million) out of the water, price-wise. But the clincher for us is that, even at that price, you can't drive it on these roads -- it'll cost another S$5 million just to register the car.

The owner of the first car is a top wheeler-dealer in the finance sector who does not wish to be named and has not decided whether to register the car for use here. Another buyer is entrepreneur Tommie Goh, who is well known for his love of exotic cars. One of his toys is a Pagani Zonda F, currently the most expensive car registered here at a price, including the registration fee, of S$3 million.
