What are the 10 Most Expensive American Cars Ever Made?
10 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Convertible – $125,000:
One of the most expensive products GM has ever released was the Chevrolet Corvette C7 ZR1 Convertible, introduced in 2018. With the price of over $125k, it is not just the most expensive Corvette ever sold but also one of the most powerful and real supercar killer. The mighty LS9 engine delivers an incredible 755 hp and can propel this open-top roadster to well over 200 mph.
9 ICON Bronco – $200,000:
The California-based restomod company ICON is a world-famous outfit specialized in producing classic shapes filled with modern technology. They have a wide range of models, but the most popular is their ICON Bronco. Looking like classic Bronco from the late ’60s, the ICON is nothing like it, and it features a modern 5.0-liter V8, state-of-the-art suspension, electronics, and creature comforts.
8 Hennessey Venom GT – $1.1 Million:
The guys at Hennessey Performance are known for insane modifications but also for insane price tags. This car’s heart is a massive 7-liter, twin-turbo engine with close to 1,500 hp, which launched the car to world-beating 270 mph top speed. Unfortunately, due to the high price of over 1 million dollars and this beast’s extreme nature, only 13 cars were ever sold.
7 Dodge Viper ACR – $150,000:
Even though the Viper ACR is out of production for several years, it is still one of the finest track cars the American car industry had ever produced. It was also one of the most expensive cars ever produced by Dodge. But with good reason, it was a perfectly engineered track beast with impeccable handling, great design, supercar killing performance, and racing heritage. In our book, this is worth 150k.
6 Tesla Model X P100D – $141,000:
It is insane how Tesla inflates the price of its cars. Yes, Tesla is a premium manufacturer, but almost $150,000 for a Model X in top-spec is insane. On the other hand, you will get a super-quick EV with room for the whole family, all the luggage, and the class-leading range for that kind of money. Expensive but worth the investment.
5 2017 Ford GT – $500,000:
One of the greatest American supercars ever produced is the fantastic Ford GT. Powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and filled with weapons-grade racing technology, the new GT continues the legacy of a car that managed to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans race as well as beat Ferraris and Lamborghinis on the street.
4 Czinger 21C – $1.7 Million:
You never heard of the Czinger 21C? Well, you should since it is the newest and most advanced American supercar. Designed and built in Los Angeles, the 21C uses innovative technology like 3D printing and hybrid powertrains to deliver insane performance and driving dynamics. Its heart is a twin-turbo V8 engine with just 2.9-liters of displacement, and with the help of the battery pack, the power output is over 1,200 hp. The estimated price is $1.7 million, and the production run is limited to 80 cars.
Even though we are used to the symbol of American luxury being a big and plush sedan from Cadillac or Lincoln, the truth is that the times have changed, and today, you are a big shot if you drive around in an enormous luxury SUV. One of the most characteristic such models is the exclusive Lincoln Navigator. In its top-of-the-line trim called Black Label, this model’s MSRP is over $100,000.
2 Equus Bass 770 – $500,000:
Half a million dollars for a strange but cool muscle car? Usually, we would reject the idea, but in the case of the Equus Bass, we might consider it a good investment. The Bass 770 is a modern muscle car that combines the general shape of the classic Mustang Fastback with the grille of the ’69 Charger and a powertrain similar to Corvette’s. It looks great and goes blisteringly fast, and it is more exclusive than the 1970 Hemi Cuda. So, $500,000 sounds like a great price.
1 Ford F-450 Super Duty – $95,000:
Even though the base versions of the most popular pickup trucks all start at around $30,000, we are close to seeing a genuine $100,000 pickup soon. It is insane that a workhorse of a vehicle can cost six figures but it is the reality of today’s market. New Ford Super Duty truck it starts at $80,000 and if you add options, you will be at $95,000 real soon.
