We knew the world’s most expensive car was a special one before it held the title, but we never knew quite how special it actually was. Putting it under the microscope begins to shed some rubber on why it holds the prestigious title.

The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta has become the official most expensive car on the planet as explained by the Top Gear team for those keeping in the Top Gear loop post the Clarkson and co. era.The most expensive new car can only be owned by three lucky individuals and if you are hoping to become one of them you better get to bed and start dreaming because all 3 have already been bagsied. The car itself has a 6-liter V12 with just under 800 Hp, a 6-speed gearbox, rear-wheel drive and some outstanding brakes complete with 380m ventilated disk brakes and 6 piston calipers on top and four at the rear.

And if you’re one of the lucky 3 and end up not quite liking your new most expensive car in the world, you can always use the seats to make a nice dining set.
