In other news, while cars could be considered a basic need for some as a tool of mobility, they are luxuries to other people who think they are accessories of wealth.

According to Digital Trends, there are only 10 most expensive cars in the world as far as 2020 is concerned.

On that list, Bugatti La Voiture Noire tops all with a big price tag of $19 million. As popular as Rolls-Royce is among the rich, you would think it would knock off Bugatti.

Rather, it came second place with Sweptail model which currently sells for $13 million, a whopping $5 million cheaper than Bugatti.
