The Most Expensive New Cars of 2017

Many car enthusiasts who are lucky enough to be able to afford the toys of their choice usually go for a vintage model - something that's either highly collectible, extremely rare, or a combination of both. Although it's possible to spend tens of millions of dollars on, say, a '60s Ferrari, doing so will arguably not give you the same pleasure as taking delivery of something brand-new, that you have ordered, specced and waited patiently for.
