The World’s Most Expensive New Car Will Set You Back $31 Million

A combination of inflation and an eye-watering level of opulence sees the arrival of the planet's new most expensive car. Rolls-Royce has unveiled its one-of-a-kind Arcadia that costs a jaw-dropping $31 million. The sumptuous 2-seater roadster has been uniquely fashioned over more than 4 years to fit the character and tastes of the wealthy client who was presented with it earlier this week at a private ceremony in Singapore. The Arcadia includes the most complex and intricate clock face in Rolls-Royce's history, which took 5 months to assemble after an additional 2 years of development work. Special weatherproof wood inlay sections alone took 8,000 hours to create. Riding on 22-inch wheels, the Arcadia was envisioned by the unnamed client as a serene space, a refuge from the complexities of his business life. Behind the serenity is a vast 6.6-liter twin turbo V12 engine, with 593hp, almost as much as a Lamborghini Huracan supercar. The Arcadia can go from 0 to 60mph in around 5 seconds, with a top speed of 155mph.
