We all love cars. Whether you are a car enthusiast or not, we have it in us to be appreciative of the prowess of the four-wheeled machine; it may be vintage or a fresh face in the market. These machines have never been cheap. Remember, automobiles are built to make things easier and safer for you. But when luxury and sports come into play, just see how the money goes out of your pocket and roll in the car industry. Considering this, we have listed you the ten most expensive cars in the world.
You may remember how far the economy has us into. But car companies have proven that equivalent to the price the consumer has to pay; they got the quality and performance their pocket deserves. Here are a few factors why the prices have gone so mad:
- Design: Yes, this is the number one pick. The design is always authentic and patented. It carries the name of the car company. Not only that. You can just imagine the magnanimous budgets allotted for research, for testing equipment, laboratory, prototype materials, the software used and even the money allotted for the salary of employees. Of course, you got to pay the engineers and scientists that make the existence of these machines possible and uniquely furnished. The whole process of coming up with a design, on how to place these parts, how to upgrade upholstery and the coating for the exterior are all considered.
- Quality: If the design has to say for the love at first sight factor, we have quality as the number one issue on the reliability of a certain brand. As consumers, we all want a durable car to last if possible because this is an investment and investments are meant to last a lifetime. So, to achieve high quality on the product, extensive research and testing must be done. Instead of this assurance, better parts and equipment are needed to prove its authenticity.
- Safety: This factor is side to side with quality. The higher the quality a car exhibits, the higher the safety it entails. Sure, a lot of testing and prototyping are done to reach its maximum potential.
- Government Regulations: This factor is the talk of the town. You may have the first three factors checked and secured. But when the government comes in the way to your product, then it is a big issue. The company will spend a lot of money for the design, quality and safety. Sure, they will find ways to sell it out and make it available for the public but friends, the law is more powerful. You cannot just overtake in full speed and win the race. No, it is never that simple. So, the company will have to revise some aspects according to the standards and emission requirements set by the upper office.
